Shashi Tharoor & The Saree Saga

Shashi Tharoor The Saree Sa

Feedback is, of course, the life blood of the columnist, but sometimes you get so much feedback it amounts to a transfusion. That’s what happened to your beleaguered columnist (Shashi Tharoor) after the appearance of my appeal to ‘Save the sari from a sorry fate’ (March 25). Practically every woman in India with access to a keyboard rose up to deliver the equivalent of a smack across the face with the wet end of a pallu. – Shashi Tharoor, Times of India, 15 April 2007
