     MINHAZ MERCHANT

 

     First, a disclosure: Shashi Tharoor is an old friend and colleague. I edited his column, "Worldview", in one of my magazines for over ten years. His twin sons and my son were born in the same week, month and year and often lay in cradles side-by-side as we spoke on politics and life over dinner at each other's homes.

 

     That said, Shashi's columns in my magazine received a more animated response than any of the other columns we carried at that time: Dr Henry Kissinger, Dom Moraes, LK Advani, Madhu Dandavate, IK Gujral and several others.

 

     Shashi's 15-minute speech at the Oxford Union recently, as part of an eight-speaker debate on whether Britain owes its ex-colonies financial reparations, has gone viral with over a million views on YouTube. And so it should.
