Shashi Tharoor’s Reply To Two Types Of English Tweets Chetan Bhagat

Shashi Tharoor and Chetan Bhagat were once again involved in an exchange on social media.

New Delhi:

Senior Congressman Shashi Tharoor and author Chetan Bhagat once again held an entertaining discussion on Twitter. It all started when Mr Bhagat shared a photo on Saturday of the two of them together from a recent event, and stated, “India has two types of English. 1) English Shashi Tharoor. 2) English Chetan Bhagat. ”

Responding on Sunday morning, Mr Tharoor spoke to Mr Bhagat and wrote that “it was a pleasure to catch up with him” at the event, and then added with his inimitable style of humor, “Now how would you say it in English Chetan Bhagat?”

Here is his tweet:

The exchange entertained followers of both of them on Twitter. Here are some answers:

This is not the first time senior Congressional leaders and authors have been involved in jokes on social media. A few years ago, Mr Tharoor had praised Mr Bhagat for press reports on the country’s economy. He said that it was “a great writing by Chetan Bhagat about all that is plaguing our country and what we need to do about it,” and further added, “The message is clear and I hope his fans in the government act on it”.

To that end, the happy Mr. Bhagat said that he was “floating” because “Shashi Tharoor has praised Chetan Bhagat”. He also had “one request” for Mr. Tharoor – “Just sir, next time can you use some big words to praise me, as only you can. Great is great but big will really make my day!”

Adhering to his characteristic fashion, Mr. Tharoor answered and left the internet fragmented. “It is clear you are not sesquipedalian or given to rodomontade. Your ideas are not adorned with winding circles and are expressed without guidance. I appreciate the accuracy of the empty space today, ”tweeted Mr Tharoor.

Mr. Tharoor is known for his diverse vocabulary and delights his followers on social media with posts containing unfamiliar terms.
