"I had so much time because there isn't any responsibility or any work. But it is an advantage in the sense that I had ample time to introspect. I could do some serious introspection about my life, career and the shortcomings in me as a person. I also read a lot,'' said Siddiqui.
He has no immediate plans to return to journalism, he wants to spend some time with his family. "I am yet to adjust to this changed environment. I have just returned from an entirely different world,'' he said.
Siddiqui hoped that the others accused in the case would also be released soon. "They have resigned themselves to remaining in prison for a while. But the thought is still there each morning, when you wake up, about being free once again,'' he said.
Pointing out that DRDO scientist Ajaz Ahmed Mirza, 25, who is also among the arrested, has not been named in the NIA chargesheet, Siddiqui said he expected him to be freed soon.
