Indian politician Shashi Tharoor and his impeccable English vocabulary are best known to the world. The MP for Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, has a way with words that only the learned and intellectual can relate with.
Remember the time when we all started flipping the pages of our dictionaries to find the meaning of words like ‘hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia’, ‘garrulous’, and ‘sesquipedalian’ introduced by him via his tweets?

Since his writing sometimes goes beyond us, a Twitter user decided to imagine how the diplomat would write an application seeking leave from work for ‘not feeling the vibes’.
And because hardly anyone can come close to his writing skills, the user named Nishanth Vijayan used the help of artificial intelligence for this.
Taking to Twitter, Nishanth shared that he tried the AI app ‘ChatGPT’ to write a paragraph explaining his leave of absence tomorrow at work, due to ‘not feeling the vibes’, in the style of Shashi Tharoor.
I know everyone's tired of ChatGPT screenshots, but this is legit GOLD.

He said that the result is pure GOLD and we believe it too. Here’s what the outcome was:
“As I sit here, staring at the clock ticking away in an obdurate manner, I am filled with a sense of trepidation. The vibes, dear colleagues, are not quite right today. The air is thick with tangible malaise, a feeling of disquiet that permeates my very being. I fear that if I were to step into the office tomorrow, I would be like a fish out of matter, floundering in a sea of ennui. And so, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you all that I shall be taking a leave of absence tomorrow. I implore you to understand my predicament, for the vibes are a fickle mistress and one never knows when they may take a turn for the worse. Farewell, my friends, and do take care.”
Obdurate, trepidation, ennui, are the words that the orator would definitely use in his letter. So, the AI did a pretty good job with it IMO. Here’s what people online think of it:
ChatGPT failed big time here because I understood every single word.

OMG. All my further communications will be “in the style of Shashi Tharoor “.

We need to normalise the usage of “The vibes, dear colleagues, are not quite right today” in Headout’s Slack 😂

Is this for real? This AI thing is surprising and scary at the same time.

— Utham (@UthamSadashiva) January 16, 2023
The letter reached Tharoor and he thought that he can’t see himself writing anything so ‘jejune’.
Hilarious. But I really can’t see myself writing anything so jejune! https://t.co/C7jFjX0tSo

AI is really taking things to another level. What do you think of this application? Does it have the Tharoor touch?
