Indelible ink

An interesting take on the Indian election on The Colbert Report.

What is the Brick and Rope connection? It has a Stephen Colbert endorsement of Shashi Tharoor, diplomat, book critic and author.

Tharoor has written prodigiously, and I have been a fan of a large part of his work. My favorites - some very inventive fiction in The Great Indian Novel; and some heart-felt non-fiction about India - in 'the Elephant, the Tiger and the Cellphone' and 'India - From Midnight to the Millenium and beyond'. If you are in the mood for some opinion laced Indian history, I would whole-heartedly recommend these. Tharoor is standing for election in his home state of Kerala.
