One language dies every 14 days. By the next century nearly half of the roughly 7,000 languages spoken on Earth will likely disappear, as communities abandon native tongues in favor of English, Mandarin, or Spanish.

What do we lose when we lose a language? What do we gain when we learn another one? Language is communication. Language is also history and culture. Language, when spoken or written well, is also beauty. Art.
We are delighted to invite Manoj Bajpayee - actor - to Mumbai Local, to talk about one of his pet obsessions and loves - language, A Bhojpuri speaker who had to learn how to speak Hindi correctly in his quest to become an actor, and who also picks up English as part of his learning - Manoj Bajypayee approaches language with the love of an actor, with a sense of its sound and musicality, pronunciation and enunciation, and a deep regard for the precise selection of words to convey meaning.
Expect an evening where we dive into this wonderful actor's journey with language, and muse with him on the doors, windows and experiences that languages open out for us when we approach them with love and care.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday. For those of you who absolutely cannot make it to the venue, we will be live on Facebook for you. Join us on our page at 5:00 pm on Saturday, 4th August.
