Job hunter started talking in Hinglish! That was so pleasing!

On Friday, I got a call from a job hunter from Noida, Delhi. He started the normal questions such as "Are you looking out for change?" and then, quickly he moved to speaking in Hindi. And, I myself started talking in Hindi with no issues at all. This was a good experience for me when I talked with a job hunter in Hindi.

After I kept the phone down, I realized that I was speaking with a job hunter in hindi. I thought I should have complemented him on his manner of interacting with his clients in hindi.

Today, we have got so much Englishized that we rarely speak in our native language, be it Hindi, or Telugu, or Tamil. We should keep our native language alive for all times.
