New Delhi: Columnist and author Shobhaa De fueled a storm earlier in the week after demeaning India's Rio contingent.

De was heavily criticized by the public for terming this tweet - Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.

Apart from sports lovers, eminent personalities as well as athletes slammed her for the remark.

Veteran cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle however offered the best reply.

This tweet from Bhogle made the perfect point without even naming De.

On Tuesday, De tried attempted to shift the blame on officials and authorities. Nobody on Twitter however bought her latest explanation.

So far though, De has not apologized for her remark.
