Abstract

When I recently visited a school in my village, Tirthahalli, I was requested to teach a class. The children were very diffident and needed to be prompted and encouraged to tell a story. One particular boy stood out. He told a story, of course, but I remember him because he used several languages and dialects to tell it. He was a Sindhi child whose family had settled down in Karnataka, so he freely and un-selfconsciously used all the languages he was familiar with. To me, he was the most intelligent child in the school.
