When he was only 22 years old, he was the youngest to receive a doctorate in the history of the Fletcher School. This goes to show how good Shashi Tharoor was in his early days.
Even today, many are interested to know the secret behind his rich and powerful vocabulary.
He is known for his knack for using advanced words in his interaction over social media. Sometimes, he uses words like ‘farrago’, ‘rodomontade’, ‘floccinaucinihilipilification’ and other words which made netizens refer to a dictionary.
Case in point, recently, creative food combinations went viral on social media. There were also the worst food combinations that went viral on the internet. Meanwhile, a random chef in South India came up with a creative concept of serving Idly on an ice cream stick with the sole purpose of saving water.
While the concept received positive responses, it also received equally negative responses. Although we might save water, we may have to cut down trees to extract wooden sticks, which is not acceptable at all.
However, Shashi Tharoor feels this idea is absurd but practical. He took to his Twitter handle to react to this creative concept. “absurd but practical”.
