What if Shashi Tharoor walks out of a talk show?

Ha, it is not as if  the sky has fallen down. The media is going ga-ga over Shashi Tharoor’s walk out from an election related television chat show.

But, is that a freaking big deal? How would that affect Kerala, anyways? First of all, will all the problems in Kerala be solved, if Tharoor starts to push down our throats, his international suaveness and debating skills? No.

So what does he think?

The Kerala crowd is not prudent enough to judge him? Is he trying to make us feel bad with all his international diplomacy and suaveness?  Then I would say, he has got it completely wrong by selecting Kerala as a launch pad for this electoral debut , each of his actions – past and present, will be weighed up by the public here and if that happens, he has serious concerns for worrying. After all, many of us know that a win for him in Kerala is just a shortcut to the power prostitution centre of India – New Delhi…we really don’t think ew would see him parading around in a mundu if at all he get elected…

He came down to Kerala and wrote an article in favor of Coca-Cola, where he dismissed the whole issue as a minimal one, of many losing their jobs because of a retrograde mentality that exists in Kerala. He completely forgot the environmental calamities that the Coca Cola plant in Palakkad created, he did not think of the livelihoods of normal people in Palakkad, which is one of the most drought affected districts in Kerala. He just went on with his neo-liberal tirade against the valiant Plachimada struggle, the localities carried out against Coca-cola, a criminal corporate who has a dubious distinction of  killing trade-union activists and environmentalists all over the world.

Wearing mundu and being part of cavalier politics doesn’t make a  Keralite any less than what Shashi Tharoor is. I am sure there are people in Kerala who could  give him hours of dissertation about geo-politics and what not.

Coming back to the walkout, if he had the guts to walk out, he should have done that while he was serving as the under-secretary of UN. Gruesome wars on fictitious pretexts were waged during his stint, under the complete complicity of  the UN. Why did he not feel like leaving his job, if he holds such moral integrity?

Take my cautionary words, Mr. Tharoor, if at all you are trying to belittle Malayalis by flaunting your fake moral integrity and suaveness, you will be punished severely and Kerala has a wonderful history of doing so.  If you did not know that, you don’t have to ask Kofi Annan or Ban Ki Moon, just check the electoral history of Kerala. Be happy  that you will  soon be part of that ‘disgusting, rotten pile of discards’ that still get mentioned as part of our history!

    The result of his candidature is a forgone conclusion, but as for his ambitions, he might still reach the parliament through the back door – the rajya sabha just like our Prime Minister!

    “”What if Shashi Tharoor walks out of a talk show?””

    The same happens if he become an MP……after winning he will shift to Delhi and will not come back or do anything for Thiruvanathapuram

    I guess we are all below his standard…he will end up as arrogant elitist Nehruvian anyway…

    hey, why dont you give him a chance? dont write him off even before he starts. I dont think he’s any worse than the politicians we have been electing all along.

    He could have a given a chance but his vitriol against plachimada made me too circumspect about this “couldn’t be manipulated” man.

    I think Neelan of BSP would add a serious twist to the whole game.

    yaa just give him a chance. He is definitely qualified to be an MP.

  8. clash said, on April 16, 2009 at 9:22 am

    he is qualified but that doesnt make a him a good leader or for that matter a politician, anyway let us wait and watch!

    @clash- Well are you done watching? Or aren’t the results not convincing enough for you. Let me quote you Mr. Clash “Take my cautionary words, Mr. Tharoor, if at all you are trying to belittle Malayalis by flaunting your fake moral integrity and suaveness, you will be punished severely and Kerala has a wonderful history of doing so. If you did not know that, you don’t have to ask Kofi Annan or Ban Ki Moon, just check the electoral history of Kerala. Be happy that you will soon be part of that ‘disgusting, rotten pile of discards’ that still get mentioned as part of our history!” – hmmm well Checking the electoral history of Kerala we have elected worst people before and more recently all the communist douche bags. Now when some qualified, educated person comes up giving us a glimmer of hope to change the system in his modest way. You want to retain the freaking status quo. I would be very surprised if you are not a leftist nut job. Tharoor by far is the best to come in the picture. No comparisons whatsoever. And he won by a record margin.

    Now who is going to be a part of that ‘disgusting, rotten pile of discards’ that still get mentioned as part of our history!”??? Well the answer is some one in the pseudo name of clash!

    @Vishi :
    I never tried to say that he is going to loose but i said that he will be judged.

    Last time around Congress was at the receiving end of such a mandate. It was even worse than what it is now. If you are not sure about the numbers, have a look at it. Tharoor or his father would not have survived that mandate.

    never did i vouch for a marxist in fray this time around. Ofcourse i am a leftist and i am proud of being one.

    “Now when some qualified, educated person comes up giving us a glimmer of hope to change the system in his modest way. You want to retain the freaking status quo.” –

    you mean there arent any educated arseholes? Aint that short sighted mate?

    I would be very surprised if you are not a leftist nut job. – You dont really have to be surprised.

    Tharoor by far is the best to come in the picture. No comparisons whatsoever. – Time will tell this, i wonder if any Tvmites will get to see him anymore.

    And he won by a record margin. – It was not a surprise for me either.
