Jaipur: The 92-year-old senior Supreme Court lawyer and former BJP leader Ram Jethmalani was in conversation with author Shobha De and journalist Madhu Trehan during a session titled 'The Devil's advocate: Ram Jethmalani'.

1) "Between God and Devil, I still have some respect for the Devil."

2) "God suffers from an acute and incurable Alzheimer's disease." (He was commenting on how bad things kept happening, and that there's no retribution.)

3) "If a criminal wants me to defend him, why should I not relieve him of his money?"

4) "LK Advani is the most ungrateful man because he is party to my expulsion from the BJP."

5) "Our society suffers from disease of corruption. But I swear that in comparison to other sectors of society, judges are still angels."

6) "I met Mrs Indira Gandhi in AR Antulay's (a Congress loyalist) room."

7) "Arun Jaitley needs to be dismissed right away if blackmoney needs to be recovered."

8) Shobha De said at the Jaipur Literature Festival that Jethmalani kisses women on the mouth as a form of greeting!

9) When De was clicking a selfie with Jethmalani, he asked her to make it "as compromising as possible"!

10) De also announced on the stage that Jethmalani still (jokingly) tampers with his age. Sometimes he says he's 92, sometimes 90. Big difference!
