In order to appear in the school function, I received a letter in English. I signed on it in punjabi and handed it over to my wife. She literally screamed and said, “ What kind of pageantry is this? Do you know how embarrasing it would be for your son, to show these signatures in punjabi in his school?” She immediately cut off my signatures with a pen and signed hers in English in its place.I thought to myself, that we are not mocking ourselves, instead we are doing the same with our mothertongue Punjabi.
