Jimmy nay socha: English
I am lodging the complaint against English in English because that’s the only way to reach the intended audience.
Even though, I can’t help myself being flabbergasted by English speaking, especially with an accent, I should do the same for Urdu. In these times, I am sure it is not too hard, since Urdu has now become extinct, novel and hence is exotic.
Let’s please see if we can weigh in on the Urdu half of our brains more and tell the schools, the teachers, the people that you can be equally smart and impressive while reading, writing and speaking in our dear old Urdu zaban.
