  2. Dear sir, You make one mistake in GITA JI height matters. Because what is the exact height for gitaji. you are creating confusion in the height matters and you are told only two daughters in her parents, but finally, you are mentioned she has own brother but we don’t know his name! So you should clear the mistakes. Thanks!

  3. Dear Sir,

    Thanks for your updates, But you are not shown in the India Residence address for GITA JI. It was useful for me. Otherwise, you can send the residence address to my email id.

    Thanks and Regards

  4. Dear Sir,

    I know you can’t declare her home address in this website.

    But, You can send to my email id, It was useful for me.

    I will keep it very secrecy / confidentials with me.

    I think Ms. Gita Ji parents will be live in mysore -Karnataka / Kannur – Kerala.

    But which one is the current living place I don’t know and the exact address i don’t know , So please send me her home address through email id.

    Thanks and Regards

  5. Dear Sir, Madam

    You must know her home address, So you have to give me one hundred percent correct address in this matter, Because like a boat her own house never moves from one place to another place. Today in Mysore, tomorrow in kannur, day after tomorrow in Visakhapatnam and the next day in Calcutta, That her own house is not going to change location.

    This is how some people will call me come here and there and then when I get there, They will deceive me by saying something else, Because if they weren’t really there, they would just wander around without needing me. They would call me to a place and stop and stand and wait at that place for about five hours,They will wander here and there without me being needed, After that no matter what they tell the truth, I will never believe them.

    After that even if you call me a hundred times not a thousand times there will be no answer from me, I’m sure I will not believe any of the information you say like that. So send me one hundred percent correct address. My trip is also likely to go wrong if you give the wrong address.

    That’s why you can send her own home address to me after you get permission from her. Maybe if she didn’t allow it, I wouldn’t want to, and there’s no need for me to meet her.

    Thanks and Regards

    Ms.Gita Gopinath IMF chief economist is a married woman. Her husband name is IQBAL SING DHALIWAL.

    So why she was not mentioning her full name is not mentioning Gita IQBAL, why she was still add her father name is a surname. What’s the reasoning she was still using her father’s Mr T.V.Gopinath name as a surname. Because once she got married, she must be add her husband name is a surname to declare her full name.

    So I don’t know, why she was applying her husband IQBAL name as a surname for her full name in her all profile’s.

    Can you explain me.
