The End of a Sojourn

If you thought that you could be a part of Indian democracy if you had three decades of international experience, a world-class education and a passion to work for your country, you have all been proved wrong!

Unless you have a big enough army of rabble-rousers, have at least twenty issues of experience in political wheelings and dealings, a bunch of well-financed sugar-daddies, a membership of the South Delhi club and quite a bit of sucking-up to the Delhi media syndicate, don't bother!

When the high and mighty leaders of the Right, Center and the Left continue to hang on to power despite proven involvement (with lots of documented evidence, mind you!) in assorted instances of arms bribery, genocide, communal violence and sex scandals, when half the Parliament is populated with convicted cons, Shashi Tharoor has to resign because of a non-substantiated allegation.

At least now he can get back to working full-time for his constituency which elected him with a 100,000 votes. I am sure with our support, he will come back to an even better role.

If you feel like it, I hope you do, you can show your support here. Do pass it on. I am afraid there is not much more that one can do in this system that we are part of.

Thank you Lalit Modi, thank you Times Now and thank you Congress!

  1. Indian politics does not deserve an educated person like Mr.Tharoor. After all.. maybe this is a blessing in disguise for all those who wish for the development of Trivandrum. The MP can work full time for his constituency.
