Those guys don't know English well... They find it pretty hard to pronounce simple words... more than one of them says 'zero' as 'jeero' and they find it a bit hard in making people understand the concepts too... though they eventually succeed [like our Principal would say... communication is not just through the ears... or something like that]. It was rather cute the way they seemed to add an end vowel '-u' or at the very least drag the last syllable into a form of '-u'... Everyone would giggle every time our chemistry professor said "fouru"... Even more interesting are the times when they used to speak in Telugu to each other... in low voices, with an occasional smirk... as if they were sharing some private joke of some sort. For the first time in 17 years, I wished I had learnt to speak the language [which is technically my mother tongue... but had left that place long before my earliest piece of memory].
