So your first language is your mother tongue?
What is the first language you choose to ask a question to another person when you travel in the first class?
Yes, I write in English, I think in English and the language I am most comfortable in is English, no doubt, but when I have to ask what station I am on, I will ask the question in Hindi, it is just how it is.
This lady in the train was reading a ‘gruhashobha’, was wearing a purple lipstick, with gaudy eye makeup. I was trying to figure her out, she then turns around and with a thick Bihari accented English asks me what station it was and I was flabbergasted.
I couldn’t speak. She assumed I didn’t know the language.
She got off anyways.
I am too shallow. meh!
