And here's another "Dawn" correspondent

Seems to be my day for reading Pakistani newspapers (I have a task to do that I really do NOT want to do so it is suddenly my civic responsibility to read up on world news). Here is another correspondent for the "Dawn" newspaper of Pakistan, this one reporting from India.

It seems that India is so vast that one part of the country (Bombay, or Mumbai) is having trouble with immigrants from other parts of India who won't learn the local language and assimilate! So Jawad's Naqvi's article is mainly about languages, their complexity and beauty, and the misuses a politically induced "language" law can lead to.
