Shashi Tharoor on Twitter

Author, peace-keeper, refugee worker, human rights activist and now MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Dr. Shashi Tharoor straddles several worlds of experience. He was India’s candidate to succeed United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2006, and finished a close second out of seven contenders. An internationally known speaker and writer on India’s recent socio-economic transformations, the impact and reach of globalization, issues related to freedom of press, human rights, literacy, Indian culture and India’s present and potential influence in world politics, Shashi Tharoor’s eleven books and newspaper columns have made him one of India’s best-known voices worldwide.
I remember meeting him in Bangalore for his book launch (Riot) at Mr. Rakesh Batra's house, i tugged along with my uncle there. I can never forget those assuring eyes, that everything gonna be fine, the kind of energy & hope he radiated was amazing.All the good luck for his new responsibilities in Delhi, i still have that hope in him.
