    New Delhi (Sputnik): Senior Congress leader and former Indian representative at the UN, Shashi Tharoor, often charms people, according to reports, with his eloquent English and oratory.

    This time, India’s opposition party legislator became a reason for the envy of several youngsters after he took to Twitter to share a picture with actress and model Arti Chabria.

    The senior congress legislator was full of praise for the actress and gushed about how, with felicity and charm, she manages both her Bollywood career and a husband in Perth.

    The tweet led to an avalanche of responses, as some compared him to American pornstar Jonny Sinns, while others called him a reason for depression among youngsters for charming women with ease.

    ​Others took him with hilarious memes.

    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.
