Answer by Ankur Warikoo:

I am an MBA (thats the forth state of matter, for Indians!)

I am caught up in a traffic jam! (oh thats terrible!)

Lets meet today evening (as you say, sir!)

Deude – how are you (I am good, dude, how are you!)

Has the electricity come? (It came, but the door was locked, so it went back!)

Lets sit in the drying room (Sure? Because I really wanted to check out your drawing room instead!)

Can you revert back on email? (Sure? Reverting back would mean the mail will come back to me!)

Have you come by walking? (Sorry, what!?)

Your good self? (Thats 3 words that dont make any sense together)

Myself, Ankur Warikoo (Good to meet yourself)
