He captioned the post as, "Kash ki hamein 'vowels' aur 'consonants' aise kisi musical guru ji ne padhae hote toh hum bhi aaj @ShashiTharoor babu ki tarah farraate maar ke angrezi bol rahe hote. (I wish we were taught 'vowels' and 'consonants' by such a musical teacher, even we would have spoken English just as well as Shashi Tharoor does.)" He even tagged Tharoor in his tweet.
