The author and politician has a vocabulary that has been admired for how expansive it is. It has also inspired countless memes. Tharoor, however, has always been the first to laugh at himself. An evidence of this is his new book, Tharoorosaurus, where he will be sharing 53 examples from his vocabulary. Published by Penguin Random House India, there will be one such word from every letter of the alphabet. It would be no exaggeration to say that Tharoor has been the unofficial English teacher of the Internet for a while now. He is single-handedly responsible for including words like roorbacks, moledro, and of course Exasperating Farrago Of Distortions.
Word of the Day: From The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows: moledro: a feeling of resonant connection with an author or artist you’ll never meet, who may have lived centuries ago & thousands of miles away but can still get inside your head & leave behind morsels of their experience
