25. Maid learns many languages

Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, English

My maid has learned many languages. I am so surprised that she manages to talk to all kinds of house owners in Bengaluru.

I found it so funny the other day, when she was still doing work at my house, but was talking on mobile phone, in English, to another house owner "Coming coming madam, 30 minutes… I am coming." She still had an hour of work to do in my house.

She keeps changing houses, and house owners also speak different languages. So, to be always hire-able in any house, she speaks Kannada, Tamil, and Telugu, and now she has picked up a few Hindi and English sentences too.

Hats off to her. Even I do not know so many languages.
