The Hush Post: A globally recognised speaker, London-born, India-bred Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has mastered the English language more than the English themselves. His penchant for the language is quite visible in his tweets. Tharoor is often seen using big words which act as bouncers for the Twitterati. However, Amul took a note of that and in a hilarious take, dedicated an ad to the Congress MP. This ad posted by Amul on its Twitter handle, showed the Amul girl having a conversation with the Congress leader. With just two words “Tharooraurus anyone?”What was more enthralling was Tharoor’s response to the Amul ad. The Congress leader wrote: “Butterly honoured. But I feel like a Tharoorosaurus Rex, an ancient creature soon to be extinct, snuffed out in a cloud of incomprehension…. ” People loved Tharoor’s play on Tyrannosaurus Rex, a dinosaur like creature, famous with kids too.This tweet from Amul came after Shashi Tharoor, recently, while explaining why he uses tough words, introduced the Twitterati to a new word – rodomondate! On Twitter, he wrote, “To all the well-meaning folks who send me parodies of my supposed speaking/writing style: The purpose of speaking or writing is to communicate w/ precision. I choose my words because they are the best ones for the idea i want to convey, not the most obscure or rodomontade ones!”
