speak to me

At last count i can speak gibberish, hindi, roughly about two dialects of kannada, ditto for konkani, tulu, nonsense, a smattering of tamil and jargon, and one foreign language, english. Now pray tell me, how does this make you insecure and inferior and feed your combative impulses?

Oh actually this boosts my superiority complex dude......you see i can speak enough hindi to listen to some girl going blah blah about her and her relationships..... and give some advice/gyaan/pravachan... for 30 - 40 mins a day..

Ofcourse i already know tamil and english enough to go on yapping for 24 hrs a day.. straight

A smattering of kannada......a teeny weeny bit of malayalam and telugu... I rock dude :D
