Surrender and tragedy
A Bad Day for India's Congress Party

It hasn’t been a great day for India’s ruling Congress Party. First Rahul Gandhi, the popular scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty that has ruled India off and on for decades, was ruled out of the running for the premiership in the country’s upcoming national election. Then tragedy struck: the wife of Shashi Tharoor, the Indian Minister of State for Human Resource Development who is well-liked inside and outside India, was found dead in a Delhi hotel room. She apparently took her own life.
