Indian Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor had taken hiatus from his busy work schedule and was captured savoring the beauty of the scenic island of Maldives.
Yesterday morning he tweeted catchy pictures of his three-day getaway in the tropical island. It was interesting to witness the politician enjoy the lighter side of life as not very often do we get a peek into a politician’s personal life.
He wrote in the microblogging site, “A couple of weeks ago, before all the political kerfuffle in the media, I managed a brief three-day escape to @SonevaFushi in the Maldives, Feels like aeons ago now but I've never been on a more perfect getaway.”
Here’s a glimpse of the leader in Maldives:
Although it was wonderful to see Shashi Tharoor’s vacation pictures, what caught the attention of most netizens was a word that he used while captioning the pictures. The word in question is ‘Kerfuffle.’
This is not the first time that the Congress MP has used a word that most people would find difficult to make sense of. He has previously used words such as lalochezia, farrago, webaqoof and snollygoster in his writings which indicate that Mr. Tharoor has truly mastered the art of the language. The writer does enjoy playing with words.
Though most of us might find it difficult to fathom the meaning of these words, the usage of these words will definitely coerce most of us to discover their meaning thereby improving our language skills. Maybe the politician and the author of 18 bestselling books are eager to bring out the writer in us. There is no harm in mastering a language after all! And we must say that his mastery over words only adds value to his already dynamic persona.
This is how some of the twitter users reacted to his usage of the word ‘Kerfuffle’
