Which languages people use when and why is a complex and interesting conversation, but that's for another day.
Check out Ananth’s and my text conversation from a while back as well.

Me: aur tum English bol rahe ho aur main hindi bol rahi hoon ☺

I am aware that many Indians don't often text in Hindi so it is a bit awkward for them but so many have been great sports about helping me out...Thanks Ananth**
