Is speaking in your mother tongue such an “unhep” thing to do? I fail to understand why many people, especially my long lost Maharashtrian batchmates almost never speak in Marathi, even if I speak in Marathi. Or is this the fate of all Indian lingos?
I speak Marathi at home with my parents, with my Americanised brother (who also speaks shuddha Marathi with me), with any Maharshatrian I meet….and I find is sad that people speak English at home with each others, with parents.
We were discussing in my school community on orkut about how many of our batchmates have changed for better or for worse. There I found a so called “hep” Marathi gal speak about another one “…she so different now, she is slimmer, etc etc and hardly speaks Marathi”
I was wondering if this was magic or tragic…..
