Author and former diplomat Shashi Tharoor has garnered a strong fan base in the past year for various reasons. While cryptic yet interesting tweets could be one of the reasons, his way to handle certain situations has always been appreciated by people.

Known for voicing his valid concerns regarding Indian economy, the current Member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram has worked towards improving the nation's image on a global level by eliminating the myths about India among the people from the west.

Recently, members of the LGBTQI community walked the 10th Queer Pride march in Delhi and asked several questions concerning their identification. However, one question which stunned the others was asked by a boy walking the parade from Tharoor.

Surya HK was noted holding a chart which read, "Shashi Tharoor, marry me" during Delhi Pride Parade while posing for a picture. The photograph was then posted by a magazine on Twitter with the caption, "Mr. Shashi Tharoor you should really see this. You have a huge fan following... #DelhiQueerPride2017"

Tharoor indeed saw the post and couldn't control his inner wordsmith from coming out and replied, "Haha! Now if they were only registered to vote in Thiruvananthapuram, it would be even better!"

Twitterati was extremely impressed by his response and some went as far as asking him to be the next Prime Minister candidate whereas some Non-Indians also expressed their appreciation for the author, one of whom wrote, "I wish I was eligible for voting in India… this guy is wowsome."

Not all were in support of the gesture and also expressed their displeasure at some rather smart yet stupid tweets but this Tharoor fan has replied to them.
