Even before my arrest at Chennai Airport, I was mentally prepared for the consequences. I have no regrets and am ready to remain behind the bars for a long period if that helps the revolution. If anything, my arrest has made me more determined.
Many people deviate from their mission when they are imprisoned and tortured in jails but I am not one of them. I am still devoted to my goals: a rebel has to submit to the litmus test of torture and captivity. I will pass this test.
Prison conditions are not good for me and the climate of this place is not conducive to my health. The jailer at Chennai Jail refused to give me a first class facility. The Magistrate of Alandur did the same, citing me as a security threat. I didn't think it was important to apply to the high court. Now I own nothing, not even a radio and a fan, and I share the cell with a professional criminal.
I would not like to send any message to my party that is leading the People's War because right now I am in jail, and that too in a foreign land. I don't think it would be wise to make any comment given the circumstances. I am thankful to the people and organisations that are lobbying for my release and safety. If it not been for them, my case would not have been internationalised. This has shown that India's revolutionary power and people have solidarity for the revolution in Nepal. I would also like to congratulate the Nepali people for their spirit in support of the people's war. I want to assure them I will fight till my last breath.
