Shashi Tharoor's TED video: Why nations should pursue "soft" power

Shashi Tharoor has got to be one of the most prolific leaders India has ever produced. I thought this video was going to show the examples of soft power from several countries, but instead came off too much as an ad for his own country, India - one it really doesnt need! The points he makes, though, are well-suited to the audience: thought leaders and public intellectuals from all over the globe, gathered at a conference on technology, entertainment and design. Pakistan can clearly learn a lot from its neighbor.

Hope you enjoy Tharoor at his best!
