Shashi Tharoor, known for being at his witty best on Twitter and for often introducing the world to words from the English language that many of us previously had no clue at all about, is back at it again. The Congress MP from Thiruvanthapuram, Kerala, took to Twitter to share a ‘word of the day’ on March 26 and thank you messages have been pouring in to his timeline ever since. He tweeted, “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.”

It did not take much for his followers to tune in and add value to his tweet by sharing the names of the writers who have given them the feeling of moledro through their writings. Tharoor, on his part, shared the word from The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a website and a YouTube channel run by John Koenig, who comes up with neologisms that define emotions and feelings that cannot be generally described.  Interesting, isn’t it?

Here is how his mini-English vocabulary class for the day got Twitterati chatting up.
