Compliments and Twitteria

I rarely get compliments of the first kind. Occasionally, I get compliments of the second kind, that is, the backhanded kind. I frequently get compliments which are of a variety of the second kind. But the ones I cherish most are the 1.5th kind. I cherish them so much that I am not even going to explain what that kind is.

Today I got a compliment of a variety of the second kind. A few days ago I got one which, I think (or at least I hope), was of the 1.5th kind.

 

By the way (and totally unrelated), in this day and age, it seems impossible not to get Twitteria. I had long ago created an account on Twitter, as I had on many other places, just for testing out. Most of these I deleted completely. I think I deleted the Twitter one too, but it seems to be still there, though I never really open it, let alone use it. Even then it turns out that I am not safe from Twitteria. Or Facebookeria. Or WhatsAppia. Or G-plusseria.

These may be the new hemorrhoids of the 21st century. Everyone gets them sooner or later.

But they are contagious.

मैं सांगणिक भाषाविज्ञान (Computational Linguistics) में एक शोधकर्ता हूँ। इसके अलावा मैं पढ़ता हूँ, पढ़ता हूँ, पढ़ता हूँ, और कुछ लिखने की कोशिश भी करता हूँ। हाल ही मैं मैने ज़ेडनेट का हिन्दी संस्करण (http://www.zmag.org/hindi) भी शुरू किया है। एक छोटी सी शुरुआत है। उम्मीद करता हूँ और लोग भी इसमें भाग लेंगे और ज़ेडनेट/ज़ेडमैग के सर्वोत्तम लेखों का हिन्दी (जो कि अपने दूसरे रूप उर्दू के साथ करोड़ों लोगों की भाषा है) में अनुवाद किया जा सकेगा।
