“ये सिरीज़ में जितनी हिचकियाँ अश्विन को आई होगी उतनी किसी को पूरी ज़िंदगी में शायद ही आई हो!” (Rough Translation: Ashwin might have got so many hiccups in this series that a normal person may not get his entire life, also meaning – “The number of times Ashwin has been remembered this series, hardly anyone is remembered in their whole lifetime.”)
