Languages I know and scripts I can read
- I am proficient in English and Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu).
- I love British English and wish to learn it someday.
- I speak Standard Hindi and the Deccani dialect (specifically, the Goan variety of the Deccani dialect of Hindustani).

- I also speak Kannada. I can comprehend all dialects but am most comfortable in:
- Bangalore Kannada

- Excepting the Latin script and the Devanagari script, all scripts I can read were taught to me by myself.
- I am most comfortable in the Latin alphabet and I can read and write the Devanagri script quite easily as well.
- While looking at the transliterations on the internet, specifically on google translate and wiktionary, I taught myself to read the Cyrillic, Kannada, Arabic and Greek scripts.
