Next UN secy General - An Indian ?

With Kofi Annan's term ending by the end of this year, the next UN Secy general is most likely to be from Asia ( An unwritten rule by which its supposed to be Asia's turn !). India is likely to nominate famous writer and the current UN under secy general Shashi Tharoor for the post. He is likely to face tough competition from Sri Lanka's Jayantha Dhanapala for the top Job.

Will India's attempts to secure a seat in the UN security Council affect its chances to secure the top Job at UN? India might need to use all its political connections and suaveness to send its man to the top Job. With Tharoor's impeccable academic and professional credentials, India can at least be satisfied that its put the best foot forward.

  • being a xaverian, it also makes it a doubly more proud moment for me for an alumnus to be nominated. i remember him coming down to school for a talk a long while ago and we were all completely bowled over by his oratory. read some of his books as well, show business and the great indian novel are fantastic!
