Have you come across Ian Woolford’s Twitter account yet? Well, you must if you haven’t. Ian, an American settled in Australia is a professor at La Trobe University and no prizes for guessing that his subject is Hindi language and literature.

He is so fluent with the language that it’s almost unbelievable. He told Lallantop that his affair with Hindi started much early in life and he started singing Bhajan and Lok geet at the age of 12.

Surprisingly, all his tweets, which mostly comprise Hindi poetry and couplets are, in fact, written in the Devanagari script itself. And believe it or not, the professor has quite a huge fan-following already.

Check out 10 of his most popular tweets.

          It would be better if he actually speaks proper Indian languages, not the stani Islamic origin language Hindi which is not even a pure Indian language. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The Islamic outsourced language Hindi does not represent India.
