yes, I speak my " lassi" and "puttu kadala " English.



Hey, you usurper,where have you hidden my language?
Having robbed me of my language milk,
why did you feed me with leftovers of your tongue?

vowels and consonants,
eaten with fork and spoon,
ill fitting my Indian palate;
gives me headache and cramps.

you took away that which was mine,
and made me swallow an English pill.
Now, I speak a tongue that is neither yours,nor mine.

yes, I speak my "lassi" and "puttu kadala" English.
