Asked About His Wife's Salary On Twitter, Sushma Swaraj's Husband Had An Epic Response

We are lovin' it!


External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's husband, Swaraj Kaushal, is an acknowledged master of the Twitter repartee.

When a Twitter user quizzed him on his spouse Sushma Swaraj's salary, Kaushal nailed it.

As the old — and very dated — tip on manners goes: 'Never ask a woman her age, and a man his salary'. The advice rests on the idea that the man is the family breadwinner and, for a woman, her looks are paramount.

With his witty response, Kaushal just taught the world an important lesson.

The former governor of Mizoram is often flooded with tweets — some requesting him to get Swaraj to unblock them on her Twitter timeline and others asking him to pass along messages to her. Kaushal is always ready with a witty response.

Once, when asked why he doesn't follow his wife on Twitter, he replied, "Because I am not stranded in Libya or Yemen."

When a 'concerned' gentleman wondered when Kaushal had last met his wife, he said:

People love his tweets and keep complimenting him.

Keep 'em coming Mr Kaushal!
