Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf is loving every moment of his retired life and is looking forward to his lecture tour to India next month as he plans to "counter the Indians on their own home ground".

After being at the helm of affairs for nine years, the former military ruler is currently keeping himself busy giving lectures. He has just returned to Pakistan after a two-week lecture tour to the US.

"I love this life. I am relaxed and satisfied. And I am enjoying my lecture tours. Next month I am going to India for the same purpose. Let's counter the Indians on their own home ground," Musharraf, who still occupies the well-guarded Army House, the official residence of the army chief in Rawalpindi, told the influential Dawn newspaper.

The report did not provide specific details of his planned visit to India.

Musharraf also said he has no regrets about any of his actions since the military coup that brought him to power in October 1999.

He said politicians were equally responsible for the state Pakistan was in and explained that the reason he resigned as President -- a difficult decision for him -- was because Pakistan was facing "critical circumstances".
