An old friend of mine called me the other day from London, after we reconnected on Facebook.
“Shyam,” the voice said. “How are you? This is Jay, It’s been a long time.”
It took me a few seconds to realise that this was indeed Jay, my Malayali friend who had previously spoken with a mild and pleasant Malayali accent.
So what was this? Why was he sounding like Sir John Gielgud?
Should I call him...
