This poem was written and sung by me on the first birthday of my first grandchild. The poem is from the point of view of a child asking Mommy to speak to him (or her) in her mother-tongue: in this case, Punjabi. The implications of “mother-tongue” go beyond simply the language of Punjabi, but of the Punjabi culture, and most importantly, of love from the heart.
