If you think that your English vocabulary is good and you can probably understand and pronounce every English word, to shayad tum galat ho.
No matter how much you try to excel in the English language, this man Shashi Tharoor will always make you doubt your own skills. Undoubtedly, his vocabulary is better than yours, mine, actually everyone else's.
Not long back his 'exasperating farrago' blew away the minds of almost everyone in India. Believe me, he has a complex set of words for every simple word spoken by the common folk.

We all have been enjoying the mind-blowing memes and parody videos making fun of the Tharoorian English on the Internet for quite a long time. But this time, Mr. Tharoor has something to say to all of us. He has made an effort to explain why he uses tough words in his tweets. And obviously, he does it in his own distinctive style.
To all the well-meaning folks who send me parodies of my supposed speaking/writing style: The purpose of speaking or writing is to communicate w/ precision. I choose my words because they are the best ones for the idea i want to convey, not the most obscure or rodomontade ones!— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) December 13, 2017
Hopefully, you've understood what he wants to say. He has tried to explain it in a very simple way, except the word 'rodomontade'. If not, then he has given you one more opportunity to improve your vocabulary. Grab the dictionary or reach out to Google for help, because everyone is doing it.
According to reports, the word 'rodomontade' has stumped the internet so much that it has officially become one of the most widely searched words on Google in India in the last 24 hours.
Omar Abdullah has asked all those learning English to follow his colleague Shashi Tharoor.
Those who read his tweet, reacted in a hilarious manner.
I can rodomontadely say that day by day I read your rodomontaded tweets in English, I will be rodomontaded of my improved English. A rodomontade Jai Hind sir.— Kanatunga (@Kanatunga) December 13, 2017

Jokes apart, some even felt that Tharoor did a great job by introducing a new word to them.
Bang on. If one can be attentive, can learn a great deal of knowledge from your blogs, books 📚 & speeches.— Capt Sudhir Dixit (@dixitsudhir12) December 14, 2017
Lol! To be fair, it encourages us to use the dictionary & thesaurus & expand our vocabulary. I always look forward to the new word of the day... "rodomontade" is quite a mouthful 😀👍— Sujata Suri (@sujatasuri) December 14, 2017
If twitter was around when I prepared for MBA entrance , I would have done nothing else but to follow this man on twitter . I would have cracked the vocabulary section of the CAT !— Kapil Bhagat (@BhagatKapil) December 14, 2017
