Shashi Tharoor is one of the rarest of rare political personalities in India who are popular for their knowledge and great hold on language like English. More than his political activities, he remains in news for his tweets that are mostly a combination of powerful and “never heard before” words.
He is so good in the language that people on Social Media swear by his skills and talent.
However, even the bests can make a mistake sometime and something similar happened with Tharoor recently. The Kerela MP took to Twitter to thank the people for joining him on the Facebook Live but made a shining spelling mistake in the tweet.
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

With the kind of goodwill he has made among people for his English, the mistake didn’t come to the notice first. However, Suhel Seth noted it and brought in front of everyone with a sarcastic tweet. He wrote-
Happy New Year. And those ‘who’ missed it😂😂😂🙏🙏🙏 or those ‘of’ whom…🙏🙏🙏

Now this was something really fresh and interesting for the Twitterati who has always drooled over Tharoor’s English. The scene changed and people immediately started flooding his timeline with hilarious reactions. Have a look at some of them-

This will go down in history. Someone correcting Tharoorian English is the rarest sight.
