Questioned About His Wife’s Salary On Twitter, Sushma Swaraj’s Husband Had An Epic Response

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

When a Twitter user asked him about his wife’s salary, Kaushal gave a bang on answer.

He said: ‘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 some important manners.

The former governor of Mizoram is often flooded with tweets — some requesting him to talk to Sushma 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, he was asked why doesn’t follow his wife on Twitter, to which he replied, “Because I am not stranded in Libya or Yemen.”

When a ‘concerned’ and ‘possesive’ gentleman questioned when Kaushal had last met his wife, he said:

People simply love and enjoy his tweets.

Here’s how the Swaraj duo is ruling twitter with their humour!

Sushma Swaraj is undoubtedly the uncrowned queen of humour and sarcasm on twitter. Just mention her in one of your tweets and she’s right there, with her powerful, funny and witty reply. Sushma being one of really active ministers on social media is the all time favourite of all twitteratis. But have you ever wondered that Mr. Swaraj could be equally funny and witty to respond the twitter rants!

Recently a twitter user tweeted to Sushma Swaraj asking her that why is she not following Mr. Swaraj back on twitter! Well this question itself gained a lot of attention.

The best response for this tweet came from none other than Mr. Swaraj Kaushal himself. In a very funny and light manner Governor Swaraj responded to the tweet saying that, “I have been following her for the past 45 years. Can’t change things now”


This couple has been together since there college days when both of them were classmates in a law school. Having the same likes and ambitions made these super intelligent people fall for each other and have proven the world that they are the coolest duo on internet. After 45 years of together they must have shared a lot of qualities but their humour is what we love the most. Isn’t that a really warm gesture of Mr. Swaraj for his wife, socially accepting that he’s been following her all these years? And yes, now definitely nobody is ever going to ask this question again!
