Interview: Raj Rajaratnam Has A New Book And Is Speaking Out

Question: What did you make of your life in prison?

Rajaratnam: I went to bed overnight with a clear conscience and slept well. I left everything I had in the courtroom and felt I cleared my name but the jury saw it different. When they did, I walked into prison with my head high. I did for a time have the opportunity to serve time with Rajat Gupta [former Goldman Sachs board member and managing director of McKinsey & Co.]. We played bridge and chess on occasion. As I noted in the book, the Gupta allegations were nothing and neither of us dwelled on it there [FMC Devens, Massachusetts].
