On the incident

At the Chennai airport, a lady off­icer was giving directions in Hindi. I couldn’t understand and asked her to speak either in English or Tamil bec­ause I can’t follow Hindi. But she continued talking in Hindi. Then I told her not to expect everyone to und­erstand the language. Her response was, “Aren’t you an Indian?”
