And, in the span of seven years of my association with her as well as during our conversations for the book she chose not to talk much about her personal life. So, it’s my duty to respect her privacy and not to embroil in any controversy. 1 would like to mention that she never ever spoke bad about anyone and had high regards for her colleagues as well.” added Mishra.
