Congress MP Shashi Tharoor is one of those leaders who never mince their words when it comes to speaking their mind. He is also someone who made Twitter popular among Indians. It was Tharoor who first started using Twitter to express himself and shared his thoughts with his followers. Also, Tharoor’s writing style is something people talk about a lot. One has to keep a dictionary handy if s/he is reading Tharoor’s write-ups or tweets.
Tharoor’s writing style has made many people his fans and there are many who try copying his style. One such wannabe Tharoor recently tried wishing his friend Anushree Arun a Happy New Year and Christmas using fancy words and called it ‘Tharoor’s style’.
Here’s what the person wrote in his message:
“May your festive season be punctuated with revachism whose magnoliquence can only be theatropistically analysed by the use of reminiscent exacerbation. I hope you dont mind my apostacy. I know your arquistic impedance might not engulf this kind of debauched pedagogy because of its repuginatious tolecentrism.
Just wished Christmas and Happy New Year….
Shashi Tharoor style”
Anushree in her reply to person wrote that just by using fancy words from a thesaurus cannot make you Tharoor. Shashi Tharoor’s writings actually make sense and it is not easy to become someone like him.
She even posted a screenshot of the conversation on Twitter:
Received this watsapp msg.
I fail to understand how just by using thesaurus for every single word( which together sounds bunkum in a sentence) one can call it @ShashiTharoor ‘s style?
IT ISN’T ! pic.twitter.com/8rQ9G7oJ3s

Even Tweeple agreed with her. Here’s how they reacted:
Another word salad balderdash!
Dr Tharoor is an inimitable word-crafter.

I really think this is stretching it too far. It’s neither humorous nor making a point

Being @ShashiTharoor doesnt means inflicting verbiage pain. But being laconic and furthering your message in a most comprehensible manner. In hindi-belt i have always encountered pple who if don’t knw any english word will term you “ShashiTharoor” rather upgradung their vocabs.

Also, something unexpected happened! Shashi Tharoor himself retweeted Anushree’s tweet and said that the writing is nothing but “incomprehensible gibberish”.
Take a look at Tharoor’s tweet below:
Precisely. Read any of my 16 books to know my style. This is incomprehensible gibberish. https://t.co/stZSVx8h1P

He even retweeted a post saying that it has grammatical and spelling errors and Shashi Tharoor can never make such mistakes.
He’s right. This has grammar & spelling errors, & @ShashiTharoor would NEVER make those 🙂
