      Once you are addicted to words, you don’t stop. You keep collecting them. And that has been my case. I simply relish knowing words—if I ask you your name and if I don’t know the meaning, my second question would be “what does it mean?”—and I try to remember them. Of the many Tulu words that I adore, nishtraa is a favourite. It stands for the feeling of estrangement between two or more people who were once familiar/cordial/close to each other.

        “Once you are addicted to words, you don’t stop.” What a rich line! Thanks for sharing this article.

      I definitely can see where anyone would relish learning their native tongue. What an absolute gift.
