India's rediff.com has the story:
India will support the candidature of United Nations Under Secretary General Shashi Tharoor as the next secretary general, senior government sources in New Delhi told rediff.com today.
Indian government sources said a formal announcement of its endorsement of Dr Tharoor's candidature is likely in a "day or two."
We guess he's no longer unannounced. This puts his travels in context.
We stand by our statement that China and the US could have real problems with him.
