All the best Mr. Tharoor!

“Oh Ganapathi, it isn’t a wishful boast,
But a vision that Shashi might get the post
Of the UN Secy-Gen
Let us pray he does, amen!”
Declared the old man as he raised a toast!

Indian Express 16/06/06: India has announced Shashi Tharoor, presently UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, as its candidate to succeed Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
