As a citizen of India, I oppose the BJP’s fascist and communal politics. I oppose its misinterpretation of ‘Hindu Dharma’ ideals. I oppose the caste system of the ‘Hindu Dharma’, which is unfair, unjust and gender-biased.

I oppose (LK) Advani’s Ram Mandir Yatra and Narendra Modi’s genocide of 2002. My Constitution teaches me to be a secular citizen, not communal. It is my right to fight against these communal elements.

The court verdict is a temporary setback to me, but I will challenge it in the higher court. Many people thought that I will go to jail, but I have disappointed them as I managed to get bail.

Though I'm a part of Citizens' Initiative for Peace, I am not promoting Naxalism. Even when I published an interview of Saketh Rajan, it was a factual report, and did not have an element of glorification.

All three of us studied pre-university together at National College, Basavangudi. The two married soon after and Gadasalli went to Belagavi to study medicine. Arti was then a news reader with Doordarshan

I got a chance to cover this new industry that was just starting off. They were completely unlike any other business because they were young. Very few of them had a business background. So they were open, approachable, and we could do really good stories. We could get a real insight into how the business was evolving…

By the time I moved to Business World, I was an assistant editor, so I had to do a little bit of everything. IT remained my personal beat, but I was doing other stuff as well.

This is going to be a profoundly unsatisfactory answer I am sure, but it happened because I was lucky. I am not being self-effacing or anything. But the fact is that there are a lot of great journalists in India who started their careers around my time. I was very fortunate. At various points, people were willing to take risks on me that frankly, if you look at it in the cold light of day, they really shouldn’t have.

This was 1989. The IT industry was this tiny tiny thing. The biggest IT company in India then had a turnover of Rs. 50 crore. It was an industry that was so small that everyone knew everyone else. All journalists became very friendly with sources and contacts. I was just in Delhi and I saw Nandan Nilekani [former CEO of IT giant Infosys] and I was reminding him, I was actually sitting in his office with him and Narayan Murthy [co-founder of Infosys] when the phone call came to tell them that they had received their first million dollar order….

I was visiting our Bombay office and chewing the fat with my then boss Sanjoy Narayan (who happens to now be the editor-in-chief of Hindustan Times). While chatting, a copy of the Far Eastern Economic weekly landed on Sanjoy's desk and while flipping through it, he showed me an ad in the magazine for an editor's job. 'It sounds like a job for you,' Sanjoy had said, tore the ad and handed it to me. I returned to Delhi, forgot about everything until the cleaning lady took out the scrap which my wife later asked me about. A couple of days later, I applied for the job.

I started my career at the age of 17, in Visakhapatnam, my hometown. I was hired as a sports stringer for Newstime, the English-language sister publication of the Telugu paper Eenadu. A year later, I got my first full-time job, at Deccan Chronicle. From there, I moved to Kolkata, with Business Standard; then to Mumbai and Delhi, with BusinessWorld. In 1995, I moved to Hong Kong, to work for the Far Eastern Economic Review. In 1998, I joined TIME Magazine, still in HK.

I had a 16-year career at TIME, traveling all over the world for stories. I was transferred to London, then to Baghdad, then New York, followed by Washington, and the back to New York. I left TIME in 2014. My last job there was as International Editor.

I was Bobby right from the beginning until my father named me Aparisim when I turned seven. He wanted to name me Helmut after some German footballer. But my mum put her foot down

Although I didn't know what had happened, or even if anything had happened at all, I called Vincent George, who was aide to Rajiv Gandhi, and directly asked him: 'How did this happen?' He thought I knew and said that the Prime Minister had been shot and had been taken to AIIMS

I was sure that she (Indira Gandhi) had died, as the first doctor I spoke to made it amply clear that her chances of survival were absolutely remote. At noon I filed a report saying that she had died, but BBC waited for confirmation from other sources. It was 1pm in India when we announced her death
