In March- April 2010, Tuhin wrote a controversial 4- part series of columns called “Love Thy Leader” for Times Life, TOI. Each column dwelt upon a romance, involving a key political figure.

The column disputed existing notions and sought to provide a differential perspective about facts that have often remained clouded in history. While the first
column delved into the power play in the Sarkozy-Bruni romance, the second questioned the veracity of the AkbarJodha hyphenation; the third probed the possible political implications of the Nehru-Edwina romance, while the last one dwelt upon the bond between Hitler and Eva Braun, which still remains shrouded in mystery.
