Tharoor accepts Modi's language challenge

New Delhi, Aug 30 (TIWN) Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Friday accepted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's language challenge and tweeted the word "bahuvachanam", which means pluralism in Malayalam.

"Pluralism" is the word tweeted in English, Hindi and Malayalam by Mr Tharoor who said he will tweet a word daily.  PM Modi today spoke on India's language diversity and said language is a force multiplier. "India is perhaps the only country in the world with so many languages. In a way it is a force multiplier. But language has also been exploited by selfish interests to create artificial walls in the country to divide," he said, addressing the Malayala Manorama News Conclave in Kochi via video conferencing.
