On being asked if he had an offer from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to join the Rajya Sabha, he said, "No comments on whether I was offered anything. When I was in RBI, people were desperate to get me off to IMF, when I am back as professor, people are desperate to see me elsewhere. I am very happy being a professor. I have my brain working many hours of day. It is a job I like."
On possibility to join politics, Mr Rajan said, "The answer is no. On the issue of politics my wife has very clearly no."
The AAP had approached Mr Rajan offering him a Rajya Sabha seat from Delhi, which was reportedly rejected by the ex-RBI governor.
In a recorded interview played at the Times Litfest in New Delhi, Mr Rajan, without disclosing much details, said he is working on another book.
His last book, titled 'I do what I do' was released in September, touched various aspects of the Indian economy.
He also talked about issues like tolerance and connection between political freedom and prosperity in the book, which was a collection of essays and speeches during his stint as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor.
