Dr. Shashi Tharoor at a meeting of development experts and citizens to brainstorm ideas for the development of Trivandrum. (Check this out, this is definitely one tech-savvy MP!!!)
TDF and yours truely were invitees and we look forward to working with the new MP. His style is more reminiscent of Washington than Delhi, which is what we need, more professional than political.
For a start, he is going to have a mostly non-political office team and he will be inviting informed and interested citizens as pro-bono consultants to work on development initiatives with him.
More details soon, stay tuned! To give you an idea of how it went, think Technocity, NH development, Vizhinjam and city twinning!
