I loved the German language from my school days and my dream was to learn it and speak it fluently!Though it is not politically correct, Dad used to tell us that the radios back in the 1940s were shaking when Adolph Hitler was addressing the world!
"An enemy's enemy is your friend". By that principle, since we were under the (mis-)rule of the Britishers, Germans were heroes to all Indians ! The German language is MANLY and possibly that was the top reason for my deep interest in that lingo! We stay 110 miles north of Madras (now Chennai) in the southern part of India and i used to beg my parents to sponsor my stay and expenses to study German at Max Mueller building in Madras way back in 1976! That dream to master German is still alive! Age may bend the body,
but these desires flicker on! Vielen Dank!
