“Sunanda Pushkar and Shashi Tharoor Episode – A Woman can Make a Man Stumble and Tumble!” - Professor M.S.Rao

“The heart is a strange beast and not ruled by logic.” ― Maria V. Snyder, Touch of Power

Shashi Tharoor and Sunanda Pushkar’s marriage cost the life of Sunanda who loved Shashi from the core of her heart. Shashi was an amazing personality with a philosophical mindset and mesmerizing voice. But the destiny took the other way with the advent of another woman, Mehr Tarar – a single mother and a Pakistan journalist. Sunanda could not digest the entry of another woman - Mehr Tarar and suspected an affair between her and Shashi. Sunanda was possessive about Sashi. She must have felt insecure with the entry of Mehr Tarar and was worried that she might lose Shashi to her. Finally, she took the extreme step of ending her life.

It seems that it is a case of failed communication and taking things for granted. If Sunanda suspected that Sashi had an alleged affair with Mehr Tarar she should have clarified with Shashi about his stand. Shashi too should have taken initiative to clarify his stand to Sunanda. Probably Shashi took Sunanda for granted. He never that Sunanda would take extreme step to end her life.  Another aspect to note here is that when people have pre-conceived notions the realities don’t go to their heads. They enter into an imaginative world with lots of insecurities. Then emotions come to the fore and managing emotions is a highly challenging issue for human beings.

There are a number of lessons to learn from Sunanda and Sashi episode. A woman can often become enemy for another woman. Don’t take woman for granted. Communicate clearly when you feel that there is an issue. Men in public places must take precautions about their personal lives to avoid getting noticed by media for wrong reasons.  Check your emotions and ensure that emotions don’t overtake the realities.  Committing suicide is not only a crime but also a sin as the person is kicking God’s gift of life. Life is full of challenges. Learn to live fully. Above all, a woman can make a man stumble and tumble!
