Former prime minister Manmohan Singh is not at all troubled by court's orders to be questioned by the CBI on the coal blocks issue.

Manmohan Singh keeps himself busy attending the Parliament for half a day daily, meeting people and attending party meetings. And he hasn't yet decided on writing his memoirs as yet.

He was known to be a workaholic, keeping a punishing schedule despite his age and his heart condition and continues to keeps himself as busy now after a decade at the head of a Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. And he has refused to give interviews, an aide said.

"He sticks to his daily schedule, only now he starts a little later everyday and retires a little early", the aide said on terms on anonymity.

A member of the Rajya Sabha, Manmohan Singh rarely misses a day in the Parliament.

He has made it a point to attend half a day's session every day during the ongoing Winter Session, that has been marked by daily opposition rancour against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government and demands for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to come to the Rajya Sabha and make a statement on the controversy over conversions and other issues.

"He goes for half a day every day. He does not participate in the 'hungama' (ruckus)", the aide said.

Manmohan Singh, 82, stepped down in May when the Modi government took over after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swept the Lok Sabha polls.
