You are out of the jail after 10 years, what do you plan to do now?
Ten years is a long time. I have been away from my family and my son. I now want to devote my time to the service of society. I am planning to open a yoga centre that would be registered with Swami Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogpeeth. I am also planning to open a free legal aid centre for poor people.
Why a yoga centre?
I have always practiced yoga. Yoga helped me to stay alive when police pumped 19 bullets into me (in 1998). Are you planning to join politics?
No, but I will work for the people in Dharavi. There are many problems which need attention but politicians are just interested in getting votes.
How do you schedule your day?
I step out of my house only to attend the court hearings. I have cut off all my underworld connections and started my life afresh. I also play with my son whom I left when he was two years old. How do you support your family?
My elder brother is an auto-rickshaw driver and at present he is the only earning member in my family.
There are reports that Chhota Rajan is planning to kill Ajmal Kasab through you?
I don’t know anything about it. I have not contacted Rajan for past so many months and I don’t think its true.
