At a recent public interaction, a student asked Lok Sabha MP, Shashi Tharoor, to give the audience a new word to learn, considering his reputation of having an exotic vocabulary. For his reply, Tharoor chose the word ‘read’, he explained that the only reason behind his famed vocabulary was that he read a lot of books since his childhood. He also took a jibe at the current generation and said that in his time as a child, he did not have gaming consoles, mobile phones and social media to keep him occupied. Hence, reading books was what he did to gain knowledge which also extended his vocabulary.
