Patience is the key.

I am telling you this from my own experience.

When I came to Karnataka without knowing the regional language, I struggled. But the good thing is there are lots of people who really helped me, though there were few who made fun of me. I had to affirm myself to be focused, consistent and thick-skinned sometimes.

You know when I learnt the best? There came a time where I just could not progress in my career without being able to read, write and speak kannada.

Though Telugu is my mother tongue and similar to the fonts of kannada, it does take some time.

So don’t let it become an emergency to start to learn.

Plan when you have enough time on hand.
