Shashi Tharoor never ceases to amaze us.
He blew our minds with the use of difficult and lesser-known English words on Twitter.
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
Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations&outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalst— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) May 8, 2017
While we were trying to find the meaning to these words, he made this task easy for us by his new series of tweets.
And every day we got our 'Word of the Day'.
Word of the Day: From The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows:moledro:a feeling of resonant connection with an author or artist you’ll never meet, who may have lived centuries ago & thousands of miles away but can still get inside your head & leave behind morsels of their experience— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) March 25, 2018
Just when we were wondering whether he has a similar grasp on Hindi language, he impressed us by his excellent performance in the Hindi vocabulary test with journalist Akash Banerjee.
He simply nailed it.
And now what may come as a surprise to us, he is not bad at Urdu too.
He recently shared a video where he is seen reciting Ghalib's shayaris. And why not? After all he was in Lucknow.
It's an excerpt from his speech in Lucknow last month where he took digs at the ruling party with his parodies and shayaris.
You can watch the video here.
