MY EVER LOVED SWEET LANGUAGE(S)!
No doubt they are the first words I heard from my Mom and from that moment that single language of those precious words continued with me as the mother tongue of my life..
Further to that, I solely grew up with that sweet language during my early school days with other languages too being introduced at a later date..
My entire college life and those intimate friendly interactions with my college mates were again at the back of that single language alone mostly and thus it ever remained in my heart
As the sweetest language that my mom gifted me for a life a time!
Graduation being over, I got to move on as sticking to native place would have made me lose many opportunities in my career and thus I started moving in search of a prosperous job..
For a while it was here and there, a mixture of every language nothing concrete firmed up but that way life can't go forever as sooner or later the issues have got to be streamlined and thus finally a firm decision was taken at my end to start working in a region away from native land..
That being the spirit, I soon settled in the new place with the local language spoken a lot by my side myself struggling to pronounce the new words and express my requirement but having seen my keen interest, my own friends and well-wishers of the place of my living started helping me out in that..
Soon the family responsibilities, children's education, active interactions at work, endless movements all round made me become well conversant with that local language and further to that over 3 decades of stay there made that single language become
One more sweetest language of mine with the children joining there much more freely along with me!
After those 3 decades, finally the children moved out on their own errands and necessarily I too had to move on for longer time to their places away from my beloved mother land with the foreign country's culture looking truly foreign for days together till a day, when I visited the Food Store of my neighborhood, picked up some curd other groceries, came to the Billing Counter, all of a sudden I was greeted with the never expected familiar words of my beloved country Viz..
“Dahi le rahe hain? Ek choti si kaali mirch aur namak ke sath roti dahi vaastav meh ek achha naashtha banaatha hai!"
'(Buying curd? Actually, Roti and curd along with one small green chilli and salt will make a good breakfast!)'
I felt extremely happy at heart with those sweetest words and instantly responding with a big smile to the friend at the counter, took my items and said aloud,
(Thank you, Bye,!)
to the surprise of others around and returned home with an 'unknown great feeling' at my heart for having heard
The sweetest language of my country far far away from the Native Land in a close heart to heart talk!
