Known for his impeccable English diction that often sounds French even to the literati, Tharoor previously amazed celebrity watchers by describing a book about Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "more than just a 400-page exercise in floccinaucinihilipilification.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary of the English Language, 'floccinaucinihilipilification' is defined as the act of considering something to be not at all important or useful, and is the longest non-technical word in the dictionary.
Tharoor is also facing trail in the suicide of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, who was found dead in a hotel suite in New Delhi on 17 January, 2014. His private messages with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar also became a point of argument in the case, hinting at a relationship between the two.
