hi I live in a multi-racial and multi-cultral society and I interact with people of different races with different language. But our common language is English. So i can speak English, since I'm a Chinese, I can speak Mandarin, in addition, I can also speak a local dialect call Hokkien. Over here, a new kind of langauge call Singlish is slowly being recognise by the world at large. From these hints, can you guess which country i came from?

I belong to Gujarat, one of the state of India, so i know the languege GUJARATI as my mother tounge! Being an Indian I also know little Sanskrit andone other Indian languege Hindi alsi know and speak and write also! Along with these langueges I learned English languege as a global person! But here I want to put some thing different kind of langueges which are with me and I learned those langueges here on this earth! These are here: The languege of love: Being a person lead by spirituality as a human being I gradually learned this languege of love ! Rather I can say that love has taught me the languege of love without formal grammer or without lettering! And yet it is so expressive... Second languege I learned is the languege of healing: Being a healer I come acrossed with this languege, which is providing me direct first hand knowledge of the diseases and ailments as well as root causes of the sickness and illness! This languege just pours the compassion when it is used so the third languege I learned is an integrated languege of love, healing and compassion, which is leading me towards spiritual growth and providing me the understanding of the sufferings, pains and pethos of fellow humans and guiding me to heal more and more with love and compassion! Perhaps is this not an unseen but learned universal languege?

Mainly English, but I know a bit of French (took 4 years of it back in school).
