Shashi Tharoor uses 29-letter dynamo to announce book on PM Narendra Modi


Author and politician Shashi Tharoor found a unique way to introduce his new book on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Congress leader is renowned for using almost unpronounced and rare words and had many times left his audience in awe by his choice of words on any particular topic of discussion.

On Wednesday, Tharoor’s rich vocabulary was once again on display, only this time the former UN official was using it to introduce his book. Describing his book on PM Modi, Tharoor wrote on Twitter, “My new book, THE PARADOXICAL PRIME MINISTER, is more than just a 400-page exercise in floccinaucinihilipilification.”

While some netizens were excited about his new book, others were left in a confusing stage unable to understand the meaning of a word which looked far form being pronounceable.

The 29-word letter used by Tharoor is no-nonsense and is actually the groundbreaker for an old habit. The dictionary reads the meaning as “the action or habit of estimating something as worthless”.

Tharoor, 62, has over the years at different instances used such rare words in his address to any particular issue or in his tweets. Just last year, the Congress leader used the word ‘rodomontade”, which send many people back to their dictionary searching for its meaning. “I choose my words because they are the best ones for the idea I want to convey, not the most obscure or rodomontade ones!” he had tweeted then, reports the Indian Express.

Once more in February 2018, Tharoor came up with a new word ‘troglodytes’ which means old-fashioned or hermit. “We can’t let these troglodytes destroy our country & everything beautiful in it,” he had tweeted then in reference to Vinay Katiyar’s remarks on the Taj Mahal.
