Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is quite active on his social media and knows how to entertain his followers. With the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar underway, the Congress leader took to Twitter to share a meme comparing Indian women’s balancing skills to football legend Lionel Messi.
The post shows Messi balancing a soccer ball on his head, while on the other side a “mausi” is seen carrying five clay pots on her head, usually used to fill drinking water. More interesting is the fact that the woman also carries four pots in her hands. The politician captioned the post as: “Hats (and other headgear) to the intrepid Indian woman!”

Since the post was shared, it has garnered more than 1,800 likes and 148 retweets. One user wrote: “Incredible.”
“Women are even better jugglers than any football player as they juggle work, cooking, managing the household, cleaning, caring and many more things on a daily basis,” said another user.
“While Messi’s skills are not undermined, the smiling woman is pure poetry in motion…Some people just see the poverty, as if that’s something to be ashamed of,” another person commented.
A fourth user said, “Fearless bhi likh sakte the. Why are you making people refer to the dictionary when reading your tweet.”
One user also helped others who wondered what “fearless” meant. He wrote: “fearless meaning: characterized by resolute intrepidity, fortitude and endurance.”
“Sir, Namaste! I know you are a bright star in the literary sky. I came to understand that you are also a person who tries to make us chuckle for a while. It’s so sweet of you!,” said another user .
A few days ago, Mr. Tharoor shared a photo of an old cartoon from 1919 that predicts how technology will affect human lives in the coming years. Interestingly, it resembles where we as humans have reached with advancements in technology and its profound impact on our lives. Many internet users were stunned when they looked at the cartoonist’s foresight.
