“She used to even come to meet me in jail, and did everything that she needed to do to make sure that our children were safe and taken care of. She also gave me the time, attention and love I needed. It was difficult for her, but she stood by my side like a rock.”
He added, “She is a very important person in my life. She is my anchor. She is my everything.”

I lived my life the way I wanted to. I have a great family, a family not many people would be lucky enough to have. I have a lovely daughter in the UK. I have two beautiful kids, a great wife and a rock-solid family. My sisters and brother-in-laws have always been by my side too.
“I went to jail, and I have learnt a lot. I take it as a learning experience. Now I have forgotten about it. It’s a part of my past. It is gone,” he said of his prison days. “The ghosts of my past don’t haunt me anymore. It was definitely a difficult time for all of us, but has ended with the passing of the past, and we have made peace with it. There is a better life I look forward to.”

“Of course, ups and downs come in everybody’s lives. I can’t say that I had a bad life. With all the complications and rough patches, I have lived my life to the fullest. It has been a good, blessed life after all. When there is a problem, you must face it. I had a fantastic childhood. I have got a lot of love from my mother, father, sisters, and now in life I am getting so much love from my family and babies. It is a beautiful life.”
