NEW DELHI: Two days after being released from a jail in Bhubaneswar, defence analyst Abhijit Iyer Mitra on Saturday took a humorous dig at the events of his recent past outlining that he now understands the value of his school teacher's words who had cautioned him about perils of his jokes. Reaching out to his over 20,000 followers on micro-blogging site Twitter, Mitra wrote: "In the 10th standard, My English teacher, Mrs Prema Raghunath, who was very fond of me, told me "your jokes are more dangerous than your serious comments". Today I understand exactly what she meant .. finally." His tweet garnered a large amount of reaction from his wellwishers, friends and followers, who in general welcomed him back and appreciated his 'intact sense of humour despite tough times'.
