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.
