We know Mr. Tharoor to be his eloquent self using words from that part of the dictionary that we have never visited in our lives. The master orator is also a very active social media user, who keeps his followers pretty amused with his brilliantly worded tweets.
So this time, when Mr. Tharoor decided to tweet in Hindi, Twitter was pleasantly surprised.
Shashi Tharoor, on the occasion of Hindi Diwas, tweeted this.
वर्ल्ड हिंदी दिवस के अवसर पर मेरे हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं https://t.co/uHPn6udpV5— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) January 10, 2018
Hmm, read it again, for there are errors.
सर आओ कभी झुग्गी पर, देसी पिलाएँगे और हिन्दी भी सिखाएँगे https://t.co/llhuEEFlMD— Raja Rabish Kumar (@RabishSDTV) January 12, 2018
The one time Shashi Tharoor decided to tweet in Hindi, unfortunately got the sentence very wrong.
And Twitter like always loved to play teacher and quickly pointed out the glaring error in the liguistic genius’ tweet.
जैसे ‘विश्व’ को “वर्ल्ड” लिखना और “मेरी” को ‘मेरे’? साथ ही एक अर्ध विराम और एक पूर्णविराम भी खा गए हैं, माननीय । 😉😉😂😂— Abhishek (@abhishekk_Vns) January 11, 2018

अभूतपूर्व। अविश्वसनीय— Friendly Hindu (@FriendlyHindu) January 12, 2018
World Hindi Day is observed every year with an objective to promote the usage of Hindi internationally.
Tharoor had earlier asked in Parliament why should India make an effort to make Hindi as one of the languages in the United Nations as it is only one of the official language and not the national language.
