Now that he has lost the bid for UN Secy General what does he do next? Does he continue and work for Kofi Annan’s replacement? That would be strange, wouldn’t it?
The rumor has it that the US didn’t back his candidacy. Wonder why? Was it because he was considered close to Annan, who is no friend of the US? Btw, Shashi Tharoor’s most recent book (published a couple of years back) is titled “Nehru: The Invention of India”. Its dedicated to his boss, Kofi Annan! While it might have been a smart move to write a book on Nehru, it wasn’t probably as smart move to dedicate it to Annan.
