The alien (tongue) in the playground

From this autobiographical piece of Prof. Venki Ramakrishnan in the Hindu:

One of my earliest memories is of standing in a playground not being able to understand a word of the Gujarati the children were speaking. This feeling of being an outsider has remained with me for much of my life, as my career has taken me to various countries.

A nice one!
