Never a dull day on Twitter.

This time, politician Shashi Tharoor has found himself in a rather awkward place.

On the day of Mahavir Jayanti, the politician took to Twitter to wish fellow citizens.

Fairly innocent tweet.

However, Twitter was quick to notice that he posted a picture of Lord Buddha along with the tweet.

Mahavir Jayanti is basically the birth anniversary of Lord Mahavira and it is considered one of the most auspicious festivals in the Jain community.

As is the case with Twitter, it took it upon itself to school the politician on his mistake.

Well, Tharoor hasn't deleted the tweet yet and in fact, posted this soon after.

Mr. Tharoor owning up to his mistake is definitely something we can all learn from.
