London: Booker Prize winner Indian-origin
author Salman Rushdie says going to Mumbai feels like going
Having been living and writing a lot in New York,
Rushdie was asked by The Observer, "where do you think of as
home?" In reply, the booker prize-winner said: "I have
different ideas of home, and I don`t feel I have to choose
between them. There will always be a sense that going to
Bombay will feel like going home.
London is the place I have lived longer than anywhere
else, and both my children are here, and my sister.
And then I feel very at home in New York.
It`s a good place to write, not least because people
work incredibly hard there.
You feel like a loser if you are not grafting away."
Asked whether he would like to be married again,
Rushdie who separated from his fourth wife, Padma Lakshmi a
few years ago, said: "Well, I`ve not been married for four and
a half years. And that`s fine. People tell me I am this
incurable romantic, but perhaps I am finally cured.
And I also think that my children may nail my feet
to the floor if I tried to get married again."
