ashi Tharoor is the only guy in the Congress camp whom I wished should win in the 2009 Lok Sabha Polls. He won from Thiruvananthapuram where I was born.
I know him through his articles in "The Hindu - Sunday Magazine". I like his sensible style of speech. I like him for his open and honest opinion about our nation. I like his optimism.
I have very high hopes from him as MP and whatever responsibility he shoulders. I even think his future performance as MP can easily catapult him to national politics. He is the kind of guy I would love to vote for. Even as PM.
I happened to read Shashi Tharoor's blog, where I saw an amazing level of reader participation. He even asks the readers to suggest ideas that he could use ! Do take a look at the blog to feel positive about the future of India.
