Chetan Bhagat ‘floating’ after Congress chief Shashi Tharoor sings his praises

Tribune Web Desk
Chandigarh, September 13

Chetan Bhagat’s in seventh heaven. The well-liked fiction author and columnist’s newest column in a number one every day drew praises from a number of individuals, amongst them Congress chief Shashi Tharoor.

Tharoor mentioned in a tweet that he discovered Bhagat’s piece, wherein he urges the central authorities to concentrate on India’s tattered financial system,  “superb”.

“Superb piece by @chetan_bhagat on all that ails our country & what we should do about it. Chetan’s great virtue is the simplicity and directness of his writing. His message is clear & I hope his fans in the government act on it,” he mentioned.

His effusive praises had Chetan Bhagat gushing.

“Ok I still can’t get over this. The @ShashiTharoor has praised  @chetanbhagat. I am floating. Just one request sir, next time can you use some big words to praise me, like ones that only you can do. Superb is nice but a big one would really make my day,” Bhagat mentioned in a tweet.

Ever obliging, Tharoor humoured him.

“Sure, @chetan_bhagat! It’s clear you are not sesquipedalian nor given to rodomontade. Your ideas are unembellished with tortuous convolutions & expressed without ostentation. I appreciate the limpid perspicacity of today’s column,”  Tharoor mentioned in his tweet.

The change amused the Twitteratti.
