The News Minute| December 7, 2014| 8.00 pm IST Former India hockey captain, Viren Rasquinha, has taken to twitter to criticize columnist and author Suhel Seth over a remark made by the latter at the TOI Litfest.  Rasquinha, who was also part of the event, took offence at Seth who after getting on stage said “don't know what that bald guy was doing on a panel on sport, whats he done”, according to Rasquinha on twitter.  In a five part tweet, the 34 year old criticized Seth while questioning his “domain expertise” and the condescension of Bachi Karkaria, the convener of the fest. Had an excellent session @TimesLitFest on the next big thing in sports. And an unfortunate encounter with an obnoxious Suhel Seth 1/5 — Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) December 7, 2014 As my session ended, Suhel Seth comes on stage and says "don't know what that bald guy was doing on a panel on sport, whats he done" 2/5 — Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) December 7, 2014 It's so disappointing when I am invited by the Times Lit fest to speak and get dissed on stage by a guy who doesn't even know who I am. 3/5 — Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) December 7, 2014 Even more disappointing to have the times lit fest director Bachchi Karkaria behave condescendingly. What's with these cosy clubs 4/5 — Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) December 7, 2014 I really do wonder though how Suhel Seth holds forth on everything under the sun and what exactly is his domain expertise 5/5 — Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) December 7, 2014 Suhel Seth was at the receiving end after these tweets from Rasquinha. Who is Suhel Seth? — Lion Of The Kashyaps (@sidin) December 7, 2014 I always thought @suhelseth was a rubber doll TV news stations share amongst each other.— Fake IPL Player (@_fakeiplplayer) December 7, 2014 Suhel Seth is suing Peter Jackson for making a movie called The Hobbit. Suhel's autobiography, in the meanwhile, remains untitled. — Utsav Chakraborty (@SatanBhagat) December 7, 2014 But then, Suhel Seth was quick to accept his mistake and apologised.  Love the roasting I am getting on Twitter. Deservedly even though I had apologised on Twitter and written to Viren. pic.twitter.com/P6Y036x4qu — SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) December 7, 2014
