Exhibition: Aaniya Asrani

The tongue of my ancestors is Sindhi,                            I can’t learn it anymore.

My mother tongue is Hindi,                                              I can’t write it very well.

My father tongue is Kannada,                                                   I can’t read it at all.

My tongue is the colonizer’s,                                                            I can’t cut it off.
