Why mummy, daddy when we have sweet words in our mother tongue.We are in this world because of our parents. Whenever we are in trouble or whenever we are having an injury we remember our mother in our mother tongue. India is having many regional languages. In all languages, we have very sweet words for calling our parents. In Telugu, we call mother as Amma and Father as Nanna. Similarly, there are sweet words in all languages. In our childhood days, we used to call them using the mother tongue words only.
But of late children stopped calling their parents with words of their mother tongue. Irrespective of their mother tongue everybody started calling them as mummy and daddy. What is the reason for this? Is it an indication of our greatness or our culture or it gives a feeling that you are rich.
For me, I feel our words are sweet. I always like my children to call me Nanna. I trained them the same way. They always call me as Nanna only.
I like to know the ideas of other members on this issue.
