I am a second generation British Asian. My parents came to this country in the late 60′s. Although many of our parents have done so well with integrating into Western society here in the UK, USA, Canada etc, they still have their own way of speaking!! They have had us kids in stitches, and it’s even funnier when an Aunt or Uncle comes over and they speak even funnier than your parents.
Like I say in the video, this is in no way trying to dis-respect anybody or be humiliating. I think most our Desi parents identify with what I’m about to share with you. And most do laugh about it at themselves. Let’s face it we all love our parents to bits, but their way of speaking is sometimes way too funny and sometimes very cute! At times I have been crying with laughter and I have to admit when I was younger it at times was embarrassing. But all good!!
For those who watch this and identify with what I’m saying, I am sure there are plenty of things that I have missed out. I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know which ones, so that I can do a Part 2. Plus I shall be looking to do a Hinglish, Punglish, and a proper Desi In India one. I’m also planning to do ‘Mind Your Language’ in which I shall be teaching you how to speak various languages.
