Just like we Indians are crazy about learning a foreign language, it’s good to see the love being reciprocated. Besides, in this age of messaging lingo, not many of us are fluent in Hindi. In such a scenario, it’s heartening to see foreigners speak Hindi. Not just speak it, but nail it to perfection. Just like our firangi friends right over here.

Check ’em out.
