Tharoor still remains the darling of netizens.

The former minister of state for external affairs, who attracted a lot of publicity for his comments on micro-blogging website Twitter has a whopping 7.3 lakh people following him. So, while the whole Opposition, including the BJP and Mandal satraps were baying for his blood, friends based in Dubai were deciding on the course to save him, over a cup of coffee.

Shiraz Gidwani, Chief Executive of Dubai-based Iktara World has launched the Save Shashi Tharoor campaign on various social networking websites and a dedicated site with the same name in support of the beleaguered Kerala politician.
