You are right Zakki! He is saying "Stuff like this", "Sure", and of course "Actually", typical Indian phrases and pronounced almost Indy-Style too. Great observation.

Zakki make a very good point! Peter does sound remarkably like Vishy. They say that pets take on the characteristic of their owners. The same is obviously true of Grandmaster seconds!

Heh, sound to me like he has to some degree adopted Anand's accent.
Anyway, another interesting interview.
