Not so long ago he was gallantly defending her against NaMo’s poisonous darts, but poster couple Shashi Tharoor and Sunanda Pushkar who set exciting new standards for PDA, seem to have hit cul-de-sac. Delhi grapevine, that rather reliable barometer of the goings-on in the Capital, is abuzz with news that all’s not well in their paradise: the couple who got married in August 2010, has been spending more and more time apart.
Sunanda, we are told, has completely dropped off the radar while Shashi has been getting some me-time nursing his constituency Thiruvananthapuram, as also a sore heart. But when we spoke to Sunanda who has just come back to Delhi after a month away in Dubai, she scoffed at the separation rumours insisting that it was first her son’s illness and then her own health malady that was keeping her away from the country. For his part, the tweethappy minister is maintaining strict silence on the matter.
