One of the reasons that Ramdev keeps his margins low is that he does not pay his workers and management enough. To attract and keep the top talent, you have to pay for it.

I think at the moment, his (Baba Ramdev) political ambition has taken the shape of kingmaker.

From where I stand, it seems to me that Baba Ramdev walks on the edge of a sword.

Patanjali was shaking up the market. Having written about him in 2007-2009, I knew many of the transformative events of his life, his incredible ability to reinvent himself, renegotiate his alliances and always come out on top.

Some sources were easy to find, others took months to identify and track down. Nearly everyone asked me: ‘Are you writing for him or against him?’ No one seemed to believe me when I replied, ‘I have no angle. I just want to hear the story as you remember it.’

I had many such moments while reporting on my book on Ramdev. I began the project with a clear intention—I wanted to tell the stories through the accounts of people closest to Ramdev so that my book could be the most detailed, intimate and true story of his life.

Getting people to talk on the record is never easy—especially if you want them to open up and if it’s about a famous and powerful man like Ramdev.

At one time in India - in the ancient Vedic period - there were equal rights between men and women and even feminist law makers like Gargi and Maitreyi . But the later Vedic period polarized the sexes. Males oppressed females and treated them as 'other' or similar to a lower caste.

I can’t say which of my novel is the best of mine. I think my masterpiece is yet to be written.

Our society has grown into a polar male-female dichotomy system, where the former is oppressing the latter and treating them as ‘other’ or similar to lower caste.

I’m always in support of the idea that a woman has no religion.

I don’t know if  my writings are a form of revolt or not. I am not an activist at all. I am a writer and I have my limitations. I always wanted to live my life according to my beliefs and I always try to portray my beliefs in my writings without any propagandist outlook.

What I can configure is (correct me if I am wrong), women should also be able to express their sexual needs as freely as men do. Do you think it is safe for women in India to be assertive about their sexuality when the social conditions are quite contrary?
