Taslima: On the run

Noting that she wants to lead a normal life, exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen on Monday said she needs to go abroad soon to de-stress herself.

Speaking to PTI from an undisclosed location in Delhi, Nasreen said the suffering she had been undergoing for the past seven-and-a-half months had affected her health.

She said she had been suffering from a heart disease and retinopathy, an eye ailment.

"I have to leave this impossible situation. I cannot interact with people. I cannot anymore take this stress which has led to hypertension.

"I want to lead a de-stressed life and I want to live life to the full," the controversial author, who was literally hounded out of Kolkata recently, said without divulging which country she would like to go."

Asked if she would come back to India after treatment, she said she would love to come back to India, particularly to her favourite city Kolkata, if she is allowed to lead a normal life.
