Abhinandan: When the public pays, the public is served, so we don’t want anyone else to bankroll Newslaundry.
Rajyasree: But they can at least outfit all of you.
Abhinandan: Why, what’s wrong with my outfit?
Rajyasree: Nothing. I don’t want to say. Foreign things you’re wearing. Oh Doon school!
Abhinandan: Dude you know, you always make fun of my clothes. She says I’m not a snob. “Nikku, you wear the same clothes every day...”
Rajyasree: No, nowadays I’ve said you started dressing up.
Abhinandan: “...you have no new clothes, you look like you got out of bed.”
Rajyasree: I never say. I say, “Nikku, you’re looking so handsome. I can’t concentrate on the podcast.”
Abhinandan: You’re always commenting on “you only have three shirts, you only wear the same shoes. You only have the...”
Rajyasree: Do you not wear the top three shirts?
Abhinandan: I will wear the same clothes everyday in my life. What goes off anyone’s mother?
Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.
