    A lot of people compared him to another suave and smooth talker.

    "My name is Raghuram Rajan and I do what I do." Move over, James Bond. And take your dialogue writer with you.

    After RBI governor said "I am what I am. I do what I do." , Daniel Craig hinted that Raghuram Rajan could be next James Bond. 🔫

    And a lot of others were just plain impressed.

    My name is Raghuram Rajan and I do what I do. The last time anyone called Raghu was this macho, it was on MTV Roadies.

    He does what he does. Raghuram Rajan. Boss line. https://t.co/he02D6apNd

    There were also jokes.

    "My name is Raghuram Rajan and I do what I do." "My name is Pritam and I do what others do."

    My name is Raghuram Rajan and IIMA do what IIMA do.

    And some misattribution.

    My name is Raghuram Rajan and I send this message to any surviving Autobots… wait, wrong quote.

    I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want, my name is Raghuram Rajan and I do what I do.

    The only people who didn't seem to love it were Rajan's children.

    Oh, well. Can't win 'em all.
