An anchor in India's Zee News TV who berated a panelist for referring Rabindranath Tagore as Rabindranath "Thakur" was trolled on Twitter.
The viral video shows Zee News anchor Aman Chopra objecting to panelist, identified as TMC supporter Anirban Banerjee, for referring to Rabindranath Tagore as Rabindranath "Thakur".
In the video, as Banerjee keeps saying "Thakur", Chopra objects by saying what can be translated as: "Take his name properly first. You don't even know his name. It is Rabindranath Tagore, not Rabindranath Thakur."
The panelist corrected the anchor and said: "His name is Rabindranath Thakur. He was called Tagore by the British."
Thakur is the correct way of pronoucing the Nobel laureate's surname, Tagore is the anglicised version.
