Reading Your native language affects how you see this image — Arun Venkatesan

Arun makes a small but beautiful bi-lingual observation. How much more depth could be unravelled if we could build better bridges between cultures that don’t depend on one or both sides diluting themselves. How much beauty and creativity is being lost today to the ravages of English asserting itself upon the world.

Nuance isn’t profitable, death to nuance. Diversity of language is nuance, death to language. What else must die in service of ease and the big squeeze.

What kind of world will my children wander, what more will we have lost by then.
