Shashi tharoor has been in the news for his exceptional vocabulary skills and his mind dazzling statements made on the social media.
There’s hardly a person who would doubt on the level of skills that Shashi tharoor possesses. In fact he is one who could give even the dictionary a run for its money.
But as it may have it, errors are a part and parcel of our lives. Unexpected though it may Shashi tharoor was recently caught napping in one of his Twitter statements.
Suhel Seth caught a grammatical error in one of the Twitter posts of Shashi tharoor and in no time he took this opportunity to make him realise his error.
Sometimes, even the best slip, and that’s what happened when the Thiruvananthapuram MP expressed his delight at having 20,000 live viewers on a FacebookLive on New Year’s Day. “Delighted to have 20,000 live viewers for my #FacebookLive at lunchtime on New Year’s Day! Those whom missed it can view it at leisure on….” he tweeted.

Tharoor tweets are usually perfection personified, but this was not one of those times, where he ended up making a typographical error. A specially happy Suhel Seth, who didn’t waste much time in correcting the Congress party member, responded in no time… “Happy New Year. And those ‘who’ missed it or those ‘of’ whom…,” Seth tweeted in response to the politician’s tweet.
Happy New Year. And those ‘who’ missed it😂😂😂🙏🙏🙏 or those ‘of’ whom…🙏🙏🙏 https://t.co/WvrjAf4JdA

Although Seth has won this round with flying colours, we should not underestimate the power of ‘Tharooraurus’. He will definitely come back with a bang. Either way, it will be a win-win for the readers at large.
Mr Tharoor’s grammatical error is rare, but judgemental error in being a Congressman reporting to the corrupt relics of the dynasty
Here are some more twitter reactions:
This will go down in history. Someone correcting Tharoorian English is the rarest sight.
