Why can't Shashi Tharoor become PM
UN diplomat Shashi Tharoor, candidate to succeed Kofi Annan, dreams of global literacy
28.09.2006 – 08:00
The writer and UN diplomat Shashi Tharoor, who is running for the successor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, says in DIE ZEIT: "My literature has always been a vehicle to argue for political ideas." He dreams of a worldwide literacy, also for selfish reasons: "Educated girls are readers! I dream that women all over the world read my books."
The Indian Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations spent his childhood in humble circumstances: "We had no tap in the house. As a child I watched the adults lean over the porch while brushing their teeth and spit the water that was drawn from the well into the fields ... When we got electricity there was something like pleasant evenings. The terror of darkness prevailed. "
