Mr. Tharoor’s United Nations career began in 1978 on the staff of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Geneva. He was Head of the UNHCR office in Singapore (1981-1984) during the peak of the Vietnamese “boat people” crisis.

He was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in International Affairs by the University of Puget Sound, United States.


Shashi Tharoor is a national of India. He is the father of twin sons.


But don’t be over Impressed by this. He is one of the biggest haters of the hindutva ideology. He has had hard hitting articles against hindutva and also against the RSS. He calls the swayamsevaks as ‘knicker wallahs” . In his various novels he has written in depth with extreme hatred against the Hindutva ideology. He has also accused  Nehru


“The role of Islam in the sanctification of Ram is a PhD thesis someone should do – provided he or she is adequately insured.” Rightly said Mr. Tharoor. You need proper insurance for doing this thesis. And be sure to include non-Hindu baiters also along with it because your one sided secular ethos don’t work in India anymore. It might work well in the UN complex!
