    On a foreign tongue.

    I don't know how to spell love in Hebrew or in German. I never understood what sounds better - Zindagi or life. We are a generation who believe that there is success in adopting foreign accent. We say morning instead of subah. We say Mummy instead of Ma. This is to all those summer kids who say mangoes instead of Aam - Mango is not delicious, Aam is. Life is not Zindagi. It will never be. And Ma will be mother only if you understand love in both German and Hebrew.
