Shashi Tharoor served as the UN Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information between June 2002 and February 2007, during the term of Secretary-General Kofi Annan. He is an author, journalist, human-rights advocate, humanitarian and adviser or fellow of various institutions. After an unsuccessful attempt to become the UN Secretary General Shashi Tharoor went back to India and stood for elections.
The exciting news is that Shashi Tharoor won in the 2009 General Elections held in India from the Southern State of Kerela. While I am excited about this and think this is good for India here is how this affects me. Before this the first 3 results for the term "shashi" on Google I had to share the top 3 results with Shashi Tharoor, Shashi Kapoor ( A very seasoned Bollywood actor of note) . Now I am now no 4 after multiple Shashi Tharoor results.
Well its not about me , I think Indian politics should have more people of the calibre of Shashi Tharoor specially with International experience. Good luck Shashi ! and I hope you will leave me a comment here .
