To me, there is nothing more annoying that someone who always refers to
themselves in the third person.  Usually it is because they just learned how

yourself like your not there or not the one typing the message?  Sheesh!

Also, he is definitely NOT the only person in India working with Perl.
There are quite the number of posters on a forum that I participate in, that
are from India.
