Living in a diverse land such as India, there are numerous benefits of learning other regional languages!
An experience to remember
The benefits of learning or knowing multiple Indian regional languages dawned on me through a rather unpleasant experience. Today, remembering the incident, I can see the funny side of it and cannot stop laughing at myself!
Born and brought up in the eastern part of India, I was exposed to only Hindi, Bengali and Assamese. Later, I had to relocate to the South for a job. A gracious colleague from Andhra Pradesh, offered to treat me with a Telegu movie on his Birthday. I was never a movie buff and besides, I didn't know a word of Telugu. But it would have been impolite of me to turn down the whole-hearted offer.
Thus, one Saturday evening, I found myself seated in a theatre full of movie enthusiasts who had arrived to see the favourite superstar- Nagarjuna.
Half an hour into the show- and myself not understanding a word that was spoken on the big screen- the audience broke out in a fit of laughter at some jokes cracked by the comedian in the movie. Not to be left behind, I joined the bandwagon in a few seconds and laughed out. My colleague who was seated beside me, looked at me, his eyebrows raised in admiration:
“You are enjoying it!” His look said.
I felt quite smug!
Another few minutes into the movie, I could now see the comedian making similar gestures. I thought he was cracking a joke again. To impress my friend I started chuckling.
Immediately, to my panic, I could see angry faces from nearby seats staring at me!
My colleague gestured to me to keep shut. I sensed the seriousness of the situation and sat still. I was also scared and embarrassed.
“It was a quite emotional scene which was enacted... and you were laughing!” my colleague explained gravely after a minute.
I was poker-faced for the rest of the movie and on way home. Relieved, however, to have returned home unhurt!
I hope readers would never have to go through a similar experience to comprehend the benefits of learning multiple Indian languages!
The benefits of knowing multiple languages are many, but one of the reasons (as I learned that evening) is that it should be learned is to avoid an awkward, or even as in my case, potentially threatening situations!
