A witty and charming description of what many South Asians abroad must experience. As someone whose parents were Sri Lankan Tamils who spoke English at home, there are many commonalities with Vinati's experience and issues. But what is even more fascinating for me are the ways that Vinati and Pavan have tried to inculcate their heritage to their children. I fear that, like myself, once you lose the language of your forefathers, it becomes a battle to retain the culture.
Thank you for sharing your experience Joseph. I have a whole chapter written on keeping up the language and I agree it is very difficult!
