A poem that I wrote 7 years back in my dear own Tamil language. I was a kid back then. I was in school, doing my 11th standard. Living a hostel far away from my home, I continued to have feelings for her but wasn’t sure of what she had in her mind at that time. I just scribbled these lines in a note book back then. And now, I’ve posted it.
What is a language?
Language is the ability to acquire and use complex systems of communication, particularly the human ability to do so. The scientific study of language is called linguistics.
Questions concerning the philosophy of language, such as whether words can represent experience, have been debated since ancient times. Some thinkers have argued that language originated from emotions while others have held that it originated from rational and logical thought. Estimates of the number of languages in the world vary between 5,000 and 7,000.
Why every language is Important?
Language defines a culture, through the people who speak it. Words that describe a cultural practice or idea may not translate precisely into another language. Many endangered languages have rich oral cultures, but no written forms.

My screaming mobile woke me up. It was 8:36 AM. The moment I woke up, the first thing I did was turning on my mobile data. Not actually though. Turning off the alarm was the first thing which I did.
I was now looking at the notification bar of my mobile that showed around 300 unread WhatsApp messages. All the WhatsApp Groups that seemed dead all these days suddenly became hyper active today. I also saw messages from those people whose existence was a question mark all these days.
