Where in the world do you live? And, are you from there?
I now live in a City known as the ‘Garden of India’ – the famous city of Bangalore (or “Bengaluru” the politically correct name today). I came here a little over 5 months ago on account of my job change.
However, I was born and brought up in the Kingdom of Kuwait, then did my graduation and post grad in India. And my place was the little southern state of Kerala, known as ‘God’s own Country’ in tourist brochures 🙂
What language(s) do you speak?
Well, I speak a little of this, and that. My mother tongue is Malayalam (which is also a palindrome by the way, the only language which is a palindrome). I also speak English, and have a working knowledge of Hindi and Tamil (enough to haggle with the auto-rickshaw drivers). I can also read and write the Arabic script. I am not that great at picking up language speech and do better with their scripts. (more…)
