Tharoor passport probably got multiple visas for ABC countries.  His former wife was a British Canadian woman.  He can talk nuff nonsense without thinking of the consequences for poor Indians who would like to have a better life.  All this fool is doing is pissing off white people and playing into the hands of racist British white people.  Poor Indians will pay the price for this man's stupidity.  Just like how poor Guyanese East Indians are paying the price now and into the future for Jagan and his Romanian/Hungarian wife foolish big talk and big mouth hateful stupidness nonsense. Hungary is now openly against immigration because they are now unashamed of saying that they want to keep the white colour of their kids kids.

Tharoor was born into an Indian expatriate family living in London, which returned to India after his birth. He completed a bachelor’s degree at the University of Delhi in New Delhi, and in 1978, at age 22, he was awarded a Ph.D. from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. At that time Tharoor was the youngest person ever to earn a doctorate from the Fletcher School. Later that year he became a staff member in the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Geneva, Switzerland.

During his subsequent 23-year career as a diplomat in the United Nations, Tharoor served in various capacities, including deputy chief of the UNHCR Secretariat (1985–89), special assistant for the United States and UN for peacekeeping (1989–96), executive assistant to the secretary-general (1997–2000), and under-secretary-general for communications and public information (2001–07). In 2006 Tharoor was chosen as India’s official candidate for the post of secretary-general. He finished second out of the seven candidates in the 2007 election, which was won by former South Korean diplomat and politician Ban Ki-moon. Following his defeat, Tharoor resigned from the UN and became the chairman of an investment company based in the emirate of Dubai (Dubayy).
