I did have a constituent four or five years ago – she never liked me. So, she called, I returned her call, and she was complaining about something, and she said: ‘And why do you always use green? I think it’s narcissistic.’ And I said, ‘Well, ma‘am, everyone has to have a gimmick, and that’s my gimmick.’

I returned to the United States after Putin ascended in 2000.
There was a moment when Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal for a game against Leeds, and the whole of the ground was waiting for him to come on. He came on and he scored.

It was a bit of a shock playing against Millwall.

After the 2012 Olympics, I returned to training, but unlike in previous years, my off-season weight gain didn’t melt off as soon as I got back to my routine.

I returned to India because I believe in an India of honesty and hard work, not of corruption and crookedness. I believe in an India of openness and straightforwardness, not of hypocrisy and double-dealing. I believe in an India where opportunities are available to all, and not just to a chosen few.
I was a sickly baby, and after two sets of adoptive parents took me home, they returned me to the orphanage because of a serious respiratory infection.

I once set myself a deadline: half a chapter a week, 20 minutes a day. The thought froze me instantly, like literary Botox.

I joined Red Chillies entertainment right after I returned from the London School of Economics in 2007.
The business model – where books can be returned, and where a 50% sell-through is considered acceptable – is archaic and wasteful.
