Not being able to speak hindi is proving to be a serious handicap. And it's not like I don't know hindi. I just don't like speaking the bloody language. Or maybe it's a matter of confidence. Whatever it is, I just cannot make conversation with most people in college. Which suits me just fine. But it's awkward when people come up to me and start talking to me in hindi, and I don't know what to say, or how to say it. At such times, I limit my reply to a nod, or a shake of the head, or a smile, or a really wide smile, or a combination of two or more of these in varying degrees. Sigh.

I liked Chicken Little. Cute movie.

Not so much King Kong. I had such high expectations. It wasn't a bad movie, but it just couldn't hold my attention the whole while. Disappointing.

oookayyy....I don't care what you speak in, as long as it's not Japanese or chinese... Even though I'm an expert at everything (heh, heh) I can never point the difference out of chinise and japanese or korean for that matter, and put in russian too, along with german and french.........

So, then I'll be comfortable in speaking English, thank you!

I wish I could speak hindi... People here keep asking me to say stuff in 'indian' but to my disappointment, I can't. :(

@anon.. firstly, i think i should make it clear that i do allow spelling mistakes on this page. as for the introduction that you've requested, deepash (when he's not posting angry comments on my blog) is a really nice guy who owns a cool velcro shirt (irrelevant i know, but a little extra information never did anyone any harm).

@deepash.. be my guest bugger, battle all you want, but just know that this blog is my way of having some fun. i don't mean half the things i say here, and the other half is not intended to cause any harm. oh.. btw, its actually true that im not comfy speaking in hindi. so maybe i will start speaking with jang in hindi from now on.
