After farrago, troglodyte, moledro, webakoof and rodomontade, it is time for another word by Shashi ‘Vocabulary’ Tharoor. The leader who has an unmatchable vocabulary keeps introducing some obscure words among ordinary people through social media; for which he also gets praised.
Taking a dig at ‘trollers’, Tharoor said: “Every day, I encounter on @Twitter people suffering from lalochezia! All too often they direct their suffering at me & others who support my beliefs.”

Online Collins Dictionary describes lalochezia as “emotional release gained by uttering indecent or filthy words”.
Twitter users were happy to expand their diction with some hilarious tweets:
You should start "word of the day" on twitter, it will be more popular than "Good morning " on whatsapp

From today onwards I will start using this word to my abusive friends.

Thank you Sir. By posting the dictionary pic of word "lalochezia", you saved your followers from trouble of searching the internet 😂. Finally you understood that you are in India. Just to write this word again, I had to see your tweet 5 times 🤣. India loves your tweets, sir.

Around one year ago, in the same country, an ‘educated’ Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma of Rajasthan HC had said “Peacock is a Bramhachari and it does not have sex with a peahen. The peahen gets pregnant drinking the tears of the peacock.”
