What a tragic end of perfect combination of Beauty and Brains!
Never thought this will happen, but here we are watching it on TV and reading it all over the net, social media and also writing about it. Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor is no more!
Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Union minister Shashi Tharoor, found dead in Delhi hotel. Pushkar’s body was found in room number 345 of Leela Hotel. The incident came to fore around 8pm after the hotel authorities informed the police. The shocking news comes just a day after Sunanda and her husband Shashi Tharoor were involved in a Twitter controversy, also involving a Pakistani woman journalist.
Pushkar had accused the 45-year-old Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar of stalking her husband and trying to "break" her marriage when she was away for medical treatment. Both Tharoor and Pushkar had married twice before. Shashi is a minister of state for human resources development is a Congress Lok Sabha MP from Thiruvananthapuram.
Sunanda was upset as the indecorous row surrounding the suave 57-year-old Tharoor escalated, the controversy-prone minister took to Twitter to come out with a joint statement with his wife Sunanda Pushkar to say:
they were "happily married", but distressed by "some unauthorised tweets". "We wish to stress that we are happily married and intend to remain that way. Sunanda has been ill and hospitalised this week and is seeking rest. We would be grateful if the media respects our privacy," said the statement by Tharoor, who married Pushkar in 2010.
The row erupted after exchange of some messages involving the three, some of them intimate.
"We are distressed by the unseemly controversy that has arisen about some unauthorised tweets from our twitter accounts," the diplomat-turned politician said.
Ms Mehr Tarar had interviewed Mr Tharoor in New Delhi last April, after which she wrote a flattering profile in which she described him as ‘strikingly good looking’ with a ‘powerful, deep and sensuous’ voice.
Sunanda married Shashi Tharoor in 2010.
