Shashi Tharoorshows his socio-Moral vision and mourns for the lack of Dharma in moderntimes.  In a Post Modernistic world,where all moral values are gone with the wind, there are very few committedartists with the philosophic vision, who can wage a strong war against theadvent of basic human values. Tharoor considers his art as a medium throughwhich he tries to resurrect the lost dignity of the human being.
