  1. Binge watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She’s brilliant, funny, honest, irreverent, original, genuine and a natural. I can’t speak for the rest of Twitter, but only one person comes to my mind. Hope she’s out there writing funny, honest, irreverent stuff, if not on this blog then some other. Miss the good old times :(

  2. You’re missed on twitter. #Justsayin :)

  3. Read all your articles. This kind of wit and masterful use of language are a delightful treat to any reader in this day and age. Your insight and analytical observations of the truth make it wholesome, not just delicious.

    It’s a pity you don’t write as often. This is the kind of writing that would outlive its author and readers.

    Please consider blogging more often.

    • Not sure what to say, for I don’t even know how much of it is deserved. Thanks so much for your kind words; your encouragement means a lot. The least I could do is keep writing :) -g

    Are you real? :)


    PS: Which 6 languages?

  7. …and finally, I find a writer..not only a blogger :-) Keep writing!

  8. Finally, a fellow Indian blogger who knows the answer.

    Too few people I know have heard of the genius that is DA.

  9. rofl, Gau, thanks to my failing memory I couldn’t recall 42 till I saw that wiki link! Awesome title, awesome blog, and while I’m at it, awesome reply to “some body”. :) Ta!

    • What a surprise! And a very nice one, at that :) Thanks, IM – really happy you stopped by. I’ll write to you. -g

  10. I hope you know linguist means somebody who has studied linguistics. Not just someone who can speak 2 or 3 language, which many Indians can.

    That’s an interesting thing to hope for. And here I know people who hope there’s no war or that children don’t die of starvation :-|
    (Aside: I’m itching to make one of those words a plural, but I’ll leave it like that for irony’s sake ;) ) -g

  11. If I tell you something now you wouldn’t believe it. So I’ll say it on a later date.

    You sound very convinced :) But yes, if I live to remember, I shall certainly remind you :P -g

  12. seriously funny writing
    and i just love the title!

    Thanks, Saurabh! -g

  13. Hmm, impressive. Hard to find someone who is all that and a woman. Do you look good too? ;)

    You don’t really look around then, do you – else you’d see ‘all that’ and a lot more :) (Let me not react to the “and a woman” :-| ). Well I do look good and hard before taking compliments at face value – would that count? :-) -g

  14. One of the funniest blog written by a female blogger that I have come across.Seriously.

    That could be construed in many ways ;) Let me just keep it simple and say Thank You :) -g

  15. very, very interesting :)

    Hope to see you often, in that case! Thanks for visiting :) -g

  16. Hi there! Good to know you have a blog! Will be reading it! :)

    Thanks, Nita! And welcome to 42 :) -g
