# 44 - Swearing: a personal cross-cultural comparative study of Hindi and English

If you hit your thumb with a hammer, what swear word would you immediately scream? Charvy Narain asked her friends and family this question, which lead to a personal journey from the 'buffalo's eye' to New York City cops and the her surprising Mausi. In this edition of The Boring Talks Charvy Narain takes a very foul mouthed and personal look at swearing in Hindi and English.

James Ward introduces another curious talk about a subject that may seem boring, but is actually very interesting.... maybe.
