THE LI­BRARY TOUR

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Put some pres­sure and P. Chi­dambaram gets ei­ther re­li­gious or lit­er­ary. De­fend­ing son Karti’s role in the Air­cel- Maxis con­tro­versy, he in­voked his favourite poet Thiru­val­lu­var and the Bi­ble on May 10. “Saint Thiru­val­lu­var said peo­ple who cause ill to you, you will re­turn it only with good.” He added:“When I was a stu­dent, I was taught by my sis­ter nuns, ' God, for­give them for they know not what they do’. I pray that God will for­give the sins of these peo­ple.” On May 14, he be­came a tad Shake­spearean when he said: “It would be much sim­pler if some­body took a dag­ger and plunged it into my heart rather than ques­tion my in­tegrity.”
