Every language has a beauty of its own. The other day a friend told me that he is missing me because I was not around. I spontaneously asked him how he would say the same thing in his mother tongue – and he was stumped! We often say that we are “remembering you” in our language, but it is not the same as “missing you.” Similarly, I find people struggling to say “I love you” in their mother tongue.

On the flip side I can reel out so many words and phrases that are so touching and are commonly used in Indian languages, which do not have an equivalent in English. Can we not assimilate all the good things from each language and use them in our day to day conversation?
