Language Power - Personal touch

Though not related to some Star but about language.

I was kid when my father was posted in other corner of India (quite far off from our native place). Along with some of my friends, I was purchasing gift for one of our friends. As usual we were debating what to purchase.

One gentleman was watching us and some how he said why do not you purchase camel. He said that surprisingly in my native language. I replied in the same language saying that we already have original camels in our village (I am from desert state of India where we have camels at our farm house).

That person was so amused that he said he is so happy to see a person of his place and requested profusely to come home.

Anyway he came home with me and became a good family friend later on.

So language is a great binder and gives a very good personal touch.
