Shashi Tharoor gets 11 stitches as chain in temple gives away


Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 15 (IANS): Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha Congress candidate Shashi Tharoor, aiming for a hat-trick of wins, Monday suffered a freak accident while performing a ritual at a temple near here, leading to eleven stitches on his head.

After preliminary celebrations at his home here on Vishu, the traditional New year festival, Tharoor left for the popular Gandhari Amman temple.

Praying while seated on the weighing balance, as part of a temple ritual, the chains holding the balance broke and fell on Tharoor's head. He was rushed to the state-run general hospital.

Tharoor's wounds needed eight stitches and he was taken for scanning, the doctors said, adding that the Congress leader's condition was now normal.

Tharoor is engaged in a tough three-way electoral battle with former Mizoram Governor Kummanem Rajasekheran of BJP and CPI's C. Divakaran, a sitting legislator and former state Minister.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Tharoor scraped through with a margin of around 15,000 votes aginst BJP's O. Rajagopal, who is now a MLA.

    Common guys.
    Be serious sometimes.
    When bad incident strikes no one can avoid or stop it.
    Today some one else and we would not know when we will fall to such fate.
    Nothing is in our hands and please compare or give non-sense reasons for such accidental event

    Thulabharam ...we call it.
    Maybe he spoke something in English which had even the Goddess Gandhaari Amman confused...Something like
    May your Grace like the Chains that hold this weighing equipment twirl
    and twirl flashing down their brilliance on that part of my body which needs it the most to make me think more clearly.
    Lo and behold !
    Get well soon Tharoor.
    Be it the First or the Cattle class ...Physical pain is the same...Is it not ?

    Or else it was a planned one from the people who do not like him. The beatiful thing is that the Goddess saved him.

    GM...
    For your kind information the Goddess does not differentiate.
    Everything about her is beautiful. Her judgement final.
    We are no one to question.... If she wills 11 stitches....it will be 11 stitches..not one more one less...Got it?.

    I wrote because of your remark that the goddess is confused. God's plans are different than humans.
