My new Yoga teacher speaks no English. He’s young, and comes from a small town in the North. He’s moved to Mumbai to make a living. And still, he communicates via SMS so well, and has evolved his own form of English. I asked him how come he doesn’t text in Hindi, he says its an image thing – he prefers to send his clients English messages. ¬†And he said he’s learning English this way too.¬†Imagine the potential for so many who can’t speak but are using Texting and SMS to learn and communicate in the language!
