Shashi Tharoor releases the new book of Rajat Gupta
Rajat Gupta recently started serving his prison sentence. Before entering the low-security prison, he assured his admirers that when the two-year term is over he would author a book detailing his account of the insider transactions probed by the SEC and his innocence in the matter.
You can expect an ex-McKinseyite to deliver on his promise in time. But, wow! He had already completed his book. The book meaningfully titled, “White man’s lackey: The Rise of Preet Bharara and the Fall of American judicial system”, was released in Thiruvananthapuram by Shashi Tharoor even as the author was getting into prison situated very near where Raj Rajaratnam was lodged.
While releasing the book, the former minister empathised with Rajat Gupta saying, “We are birds of the same feather. So we understand each other well. I know how it feels when the entire world blames you for a crime and only you know that you are innocent.”
What if the entire world knows that you are guilty of a crime and only you claim that you are innocent?
