I am proficient in English and Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu).
I speak Standard Hindi and the Deccani dialect (specifically, the Goan variety of the Deccani dialect of Hindustani).
I was born to Karnatakan parents who moved to the neighbouring state of Goa before I was born. Consequently, I grew up speaking Kannada at home and Konkani everywhere else. I can comprehend all dialects of Kannada but am most comfortable in:
Konkani is my second mother tongue and I can understand and speak Marathi too though not as fluently as Konkani.
I took French in 8th grade & learnt it for 3 years but my knowledge of spoken French is very, very basic and very, very limited.
Growing up in Goa meant that I would not be educated in Kannada, so I had to teach myself the Kannada script in my teenage years. Excepting the Latin and the Devanagari scripts, all scripts I can read were taught to me by myself.
I am most comfortable in the Latin alphabet and I can read and write the Devanagri script quite easily as well.
While dealing with the transliterations on the internet, specifically on wiktionary, I taught myself to read the Cyrillic, Arabic and Greek scripts.
User:Pulimaiyi/Indo-Iranian Vocabulary Innovations : A list of words reconstructible for Proto-Indo-Iranian but not for Proto-Indo-European. These words weren't discovered by me but are rather compiled into a single page from lots of sources, so that if any person in the future, for whatever reason, wishes to learn some words that were unique to PII, they won't have to consult multiple sources as I had to.
