In defence of MOS.Sashi Tharoor

The people at large and the congress party media managers are making a mountain out of a mole hill regarding MOS Sashi Tharoor’s innocent ‘Twitter’ jibe regarding the ‘Cattle classes’ and the ‘Holy cows’. It was an entertaining reply to a clever question. One has to be of the same feather to appreciate a joke of the same and that is what Tharoor realized at his own peril; the difference between his international and native friends. Where has our collective sense of humor disappeared? One should learn to laugh at one self. Looks like we didn't inherit the good qualities from the British, but at least the Italian born Congress President Sonia Gandhi should show better sense of humor and laugh it off.
