It’s fascinating to observe Bangladeshis speak in accent heavy Hindi/Urdu in the Gulf as they seem to monopolise the service sector jobs here, irrespective of the typology of the eatery or the petrol station. I asked some of them if they spoke Hindi/Urdu prior to the Gulf, as they said that their exposure was limited to Bollywood Films, rather more to Kolkata Cinema. SAARC integration succeeds in the Gulf. Economics is a greater goal to Language.
