so much of the lonely only

You know what I miss? I miss the way people talk. I miss Indian English(es). I miss "only." I miss "so much of [adjective]." I miss "Is everyone having their luggages?" There is a particular voice that I hear in my head many times a day, and at random points I'll run across a phrase or word that I long to hear that voice say, because I cannot do any of these accents justice, even in my imagination.

haha Beth, Indian English is actually pretty good, since it is British English but it applies to only those who speak 'proper' English - with proper diction and pronounciation. Others literally translate their local language into English, and that is the reason you find those unique way of making sentences! :P
If you have to learn a new language you too will be 'thinking in English' and speaking in that other language..

Walk into an Indian store or Indian locality here in the US, you won't miss that anymore! :)
