Fiction-55: Language lies

His family always antagonized him for not speaking his mother tongue. He felt awkward conversing in it. As a child, he used to speak but as he grew up in North India, he lost the habit.

On the day of his job recruitment, the interviewer asked, "Telugu occhuna?"

"Occhunu, sir", he lied.
He got the job.



*occhuna is do you know?
*occhunu is I know.
