The Benglish Podcast


I have this strange idea.
Sitting alone having a glass of rum in the sweltering heat of Delhi, you wouldn’t expect a rational idea would you?
I remember me and a very dear friend of mine once had a conversation while on a weekend trip from Delhi.
We were all in a car and talking random shit, when slowly the Bengali accent kicked into our otherwise normal English conversation. Soon we both were going Mamata Bannerjee and Pranab Mukherjee at each other.

I often reminisce about those times when I used to be so fluent with these absolute random, unrelated conversations and segways. I digress (ironically speaking), I was thinking if it would be a good idea to start recording funny bits of news in Benglish as me and my friend ended up calling it. English with a heavy Bengali accent.

I think I’m going to drink up on it and come back.
This would be a good place to kick it off since only a handful of people will listen in to begin with. Not that I’m Justin Beiber, if you know what I mean, but still.

To the moon and back!
