SILENT MODE

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

If there’s one per­son who clearly should re­main on silent mode, it is Shashi Tha­roor. On Oc­to­ber 30, while de­liv­er­ing a talk at the D.G. Vaish­nav Col­lege in Chen­nai, he told his au­di­ence, whose mo­bile phones had started ring­ing, “dur­ing pub­lic meet­ings, the or­gan­is­ers usu­ally re­quest ev­ery­body to keep their cell­phones in Man­mo­han Singh mode. I guess they for­got to do the same here.” But when the au­di­ence burst out laugh­ing he did some dam­age con­trol.“i was just jok­ing. Our Prime Min­is­ter is the most ef­fi­cient per­son I have ever seen.” Too late.
