Shashi Tharoor is not a new name in the world of controversies. He drives the media and netizens in his own crazy way. One big reason being the heavy use of vocabulary in his tweets and messages.
How can we forget that he wore our thinking caps by using words such as Farrago, Webaqoof, rodomontade, Snollygoster and many more.
Recently Shashi Tharoor posted few pictures on Twitter from his trip to the Maldives. Netizens got baffled over the word ‘Kerfuffle’ and began all the searching process.
A couple of weeks ago, before all the political kerfuffle in the media, I managed a brief three-day escape to @SonevaFushi in the Maldives. Feels like aeons ago now but I’ve never been on a more perfect getaway. #DiscoverSoneva pic.twitter.com/fVPhZX2qv6

Shashi, try to use simple English so that common people can understand. The communication in HiFi English will not yield the results intended for. For most of your speeches or messages people have one question “ Kahana kya chahate ho”
