The suit, filed through advocate Gaurav Gupta denounced the news, claiming that the recordings were released in a sensational manner so as to appease the viewers and created a non-existing controversy by maligning his public life and public image.
Taken from Dmitri Borgmann’s book ‘Language on Vacation: An Olio of Orthographical Oddities’, the sentence shared by Shashi Tharoor is an example of a rhopalic sentence, where each word contains one letter, or one syllable, more than the previous word.
“What could be the advantage of our leaders speaking in Hindi at the UN? It may help them reach to the TV audience (but) not to any delegate there. It is (also) an expensive effort. What are we gaining?”
Shashi Tharoor’s grammatical mistake gets caught on Twitter, and Twitterati won’t let this typo slide as they pull his leg.
Here is looking back at how Shashi Tharoor’s brilliant vocabulary became the talk of the Internet, throughout the year.
“Many have pointed out that the Constitution has been amended 100+times. Govt is fully entitled to propose amendments. It is the intent that matters. The Hindutvavadis reject the idea that our nation is a territory &all the people in it. They want HinduRashtra: a Hindu Pakistan,” Tharoor tweeted.
On December 24, Shashi Tharoor wished everyone a Merry Christmas on Twitter. While the message and wish were appreciated, the conspicuous absence of any ‘difficult’ word caught the attention of people and they are clearly not too pleased.
Shashi Tharoor stole the show with his response to the Amul cartoon saying he was “butterly honoured” by the creation and added that he felt like a Tharoorosaurus Rex — an ancient creature soon to be extinct!
The cartoon is in response to Shashi Tharoor’s latest tweet when he used the word — rodomontade — and made people rush to look for their dictionaries to decipher what exactly he meant!
For the uninitiated (like us), rodomontade means ‘boastful or inflated talk or behaviour’. Tharoor’s tweet, which was a response to those who trolls his use of language, probably sent them to the dictionary again.
Shashi Kapoor passes away at 79, but apparently politician Shashi Tharoor’s office has been getting condolence calls. Moments after his own condolence message, the MP clarified that news of his death were “if not exaggerated, at least premature.”
People on social media are almost always left impressed with Shashi Tharoor’s witty words and repartees. But he also gets into trouble for the same. Perhaps lamenting the lack of humour of the nation, he recently tweeted two posters of Air India which he feels were the “greatest” from a time when “the nation still had a sense of humour”.
Shashi Tharoor’s initial tweet was lambasted by several ministers including two Haryana ministers and the National Commission for Women. However, Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar’s reply is as ‘Chill’ as it can get.
Hours after Manushi Chhillar was declared the winner of the Miss World contest on Saturday night, Tharoor had punned between Chhillar and chillar, which means small change.
“What a mistake to demonetise our currency! BJP should have realised that Indian cash dominates the globe: look, even our Chhillar has become Miss World!” Tharoor tweeted
