New Delhi Here are the highlights of what Myanmar's pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi said in an exclusive interview with NDTV's Barkha Dutt:

  • I was saddened by India yes, but don't feel I have the right to condemn it
  • I can only expect things from myself, not another nation
  • India took a pragmatic view on Burma; that's India's choice
  • The world finds it scandalous but I actually like quite a few army generals
  • My defining memory of my father is him in uniform; I have a general affection for the uniform
  • My farewell message for my husband reached him too late
  • I had prepared Michael for the fact that I would always choose my country first
  • Of course I have fallibilities; I have a temper I need to check
  • The Nobel Prize opened a door in my heart; it showed the world had not forgotten us
  • I have a sense of humour; that has given me strength
  • I condemn all violence; but won't take sides in the Rohingyas issue; both communities are clashing
  • I took some time off to take a walk in Delhi's Lodhi Garden
  • I refuse to watch the movie made about me; find it all slightly embarrassing
