Language has always been my biggest stumbling block when dealing with my fellow men. At my work I would regularly get the comment that I am not assertive enough.
I picked up a few Tamil words, but the fact that I'm having great difficulty in learning languages would not have been a problem in my relationship with them.
They accepted me as I was.
When I went walking in silence, for example, it seemed at first that I was all alone. Then suddenly, from behind the bushes or I don't know where, Tamils, women, men, would appear, but even stepped aside to not bother me, and greeted me in that Indian way.
But if I met a Western Aurovilian, they would interrupt me and ask what I was doing.
Westerners think that you are only working when they can see it.
I think that the Indian people are spiritually the most evolved here on earth.
