Be it adding new words from the English language to the vocabulary of Indians or hitting out at Britain over India’s colonial past, he has won hearts and created a buzz on social media time and again.

Shashi Tharoor’s views on LGBTQ rights were lauded when he introduced a bill to decriminalise homosexuality in parliament. As Delhi witnessed its tenth Queer Pride Parade, one of many colourful placards had something for Tharoor which caught everyone’s attention.
