I am not surprised that the India media and the Kerala ones in particular are hell bent to shake the very foundations that Shashi Tharoor (the Indian Minister of State for External Affairs and a member of the Indian Parliament) stands upon. It’s because they have not had to deal with someone like him. Admittedly that perhaps he should have been careful with the joke about cattle. Most Indians still pray to cattle rather than eat them for lunch.
Let’s check the list – he was born in London, he’s well traveled, highly educated, extremely wordly & an intellectual, sophisticated, won many awards, is very rich even before he entered into Indian politics (worth around Rs. 15 crores), is recognized as a global diplomat & actually talks sense. He’s a total opposite to what we are used to in India.
What the hell is he doing in Indian politics?
