December 11, 2003Shashi Shocked. Kofi Annan's man for Communications and Public Information, Shashi Tharoor, got a bolt from the blue on Wednesday from Professor Annabelle Sreberny, visiting professor at SOAS, University of London.
She interrupted Shashi just as he was winding up a session called View from the Bridge and pointed out that none of the grandees on the bridge or the several voices called from the floor was female.
For the record the male grandees were:German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, the Chilean boss of the International Labour Organisation Juan Somavia and American armed forces consultant John Rendon - plus, on a big screen, BBC boss Greg Dyke detained in London by fog.
