Shashi Tharoor's reputation as an orator - and an eloquent one at that - precedes him.
During his recent visits to various US universities to launch his book, Inglorious Empire,Tharoor was asked about 'India Occupied Kashmir' by a Pakistani girl who questioned, "How long will we keep on talking about Kashmir and keep this as a bone of contention?"
Tharoor's amazing reply was followed by a detailed explanation of how Pakistan was created due to a logic that the Indian Nationalist Movement disagreed with.
The Pakistani logic, as mentioned by Tharoor, was that "Pakistan is created as a result of one party wanting a state for people of a particular religion. Now, the Indian Nationalist Movement never bought into that logic. It always claimed to be a movement of every faith, every religion, every caste, every language, every colour and so on."
