10 most common food items in “The Shashi Tharoor English”

But all of us are well aware of Dr.Shashi Tharoor and his unrivalled lexicon which is not only discrete but indecipherable of sorts at first instances.

The words he uses in his tweets and speeches sometimes garner more attention than the argument itself. And what if we, run-of-the-mill Indians, just for once, try confabulation (oops! Conversation) like him in our everyday lives? I bet, we will give any modern day Shakespeare a run for his money.
