His cup of woes runneth over

Former Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor is a bitter man nowadays.

Former Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor is a bitter man nowadays. Last Thursday,as he went to see Parliamentary Affairs Minister P K Bansal in his chamber in Parliament,he had to wait for over an hour in the ante-room. As he sipped a cup of tea sent by the senior minister,Tharoor found himself encircled by a group of television journalists. “Are you angry with us,sir?” asked one of them. “Put yourself in my place and then think,” Tharoor snapped. Visibly upset by the presence of other visitors,he then tried to gulp the tea down,but found it too hot. Exasperated,he left the room with the cup still in his hand.
