Too big a mouth

March 16 2010

The entire drama had started from the dinner that was hosted by Indian diplomat in Saudi Arabia, Mr M.O.H. Farooq. Though a group of Indian journalists was also present in that lunch and so were senior
ministers like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma and Murli Deora, and so was Shivshankar Menon, but no one was discussing politics. Just then people noticed that Shashi Tharoor had the mike in his hand and began addressing a press conference in one corner of the lawn. And in between this he used the word “interlocutor’’ while making a mention of how Saudi Arabia can use its good relations with Pakistan to
India’s benefit and thus play the role of an interlocutor. The next day “Arab News’’ published a big story about India’s intention. Later the Prime Minister himself took control of the situation by saying
that the whole world is dependent on each other or is interdependent, and so one friendly country comes to the aid of another country, the way India is doing for Afghanistan. But by then the matter had reached
a feverish pitch. So now Tharoor should remain prepared for paying the price for having a big mouth.
