Shashi Tharoor is a wonderful orator and a linguist.
While he is undoubtedly brilliant in the English language, people have had serious doubts about his Hindi skills. And they were put to test in a recent interview.
Well, he came, was asked to translate some of the hard Hindi words in English and surprisingly, was also good at it.
Here's the video:
He proved it with this test that he not only has a good command of English but also Hindi.
Now, Shashi Tharoor has nailed the language with an impressive poem.
On Tuesday, the Congress MP took to Twitter to share a video of himself, where he can be seen reciting two lines for those who make fun of his poor command over Hindi.
मेरी कच्ची हिंदी सुनकर जो लुत्फ़ उठाते हैंउनकी ख़ातिर चलो तुम्हें दो पंक्ति सुनाते हैं : pic.twitter.com/lFWMFh56JY— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) March 20, 2018
In the video which was posted a day ahead of the World Poetry Day, he says,
"Koshish karenge roz, ek din seekh jaenge... Hasne doh unko aaj, wahi taali bajaenge"
This is how Twitter reacted:
