From the time that I was a child, my parents wanted me to learn and be fluent in Kannada. My interest has waxed and waned.
Yesterday I saw this tweet, which starts generalizing (in English) about girls named Sumana, and then switches to Kannada to make a jibe that I only fractionally understand.
Finally I have a strong, urgent motive to learn fluent Kannada: people might be making fun of me and I need to know what they're saying.
