Former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor’s speech at Oxford University about why the British owe restitution to India has gone viral. Not just that, it has received a thumbs-up from Prime Minister Narendra Modi just a day after Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi rebuked Tharoor.

Shashi-ji is an orator who says the right thing at the right place... sometimes, such things become a turning point.
