Hind hai, hind hi rahenge!

Having lived outside the country for over 14 months, I have realized that our language is sweeter than most. When you hear two people converse in Hindi, it seldom sounds like a catfight or like scratching surfaces. While I wouldn’t like to degrade other languages, neither is that an intention, and there would be an obvious bias, it does sound pleasant and non-offensive.

I sincerely believe a mind should explore in order to expand. Travels and adventures teach you a multitude of things whose presence/knowledge might have been previously ignored. I never thought I’d smell an envelope, which traveled all the way from home like they show in the movies and actually relish that smell!
