Author

Christal Jeya. That’s my real name.

How can I explain myself? A south Indian poet who wants to be a universal novelist. I’m an everyday learner. Imagination is my forte and languages are my passion.

Born in the red land of Kanyakumari and exploring the beauty of life in the midst of everyday chaos.

Though Tamil is my mother-tongue; Hindi is almost like my step-mother. English is my everyday friend as I am an English Literature student. My passion for languages led me to learn Malayalam, French and Hebrew. Self-learning is what I do enjoy.(My current pick is Korean because it sounds similar to Tamil)

Living with parents and two younger sisters in a beautiful countryside of Tamilnadu, INDIA.

      2. Great work!!! I read your Tamil poem…

        I believe language is universal…. Every language is connected to one another… When we read each language’s literature and history, it proves.

        Anyway good work…. It would be better if you write a translated version of your Tamil poem too. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      4. Great!!! Keep up the good work πŸ™‚ I learnt French as second language in college because they had no Hindi there. I had no other go. It started like that… I am learning Korean on my own… Next it would be Russian I guess… But practicing each language is more important than learning it… πŸ˜› That’d be the hardest part.

  5. you have knowledge of many languages that’s what makes your thought clear and powerful. i surprised by seeing these two in language list Malayalam , Hebrew which I think toughest known language , someone told me like this way only.
    did you learned all these languages by yourself?

    1. Its a long story how I learnt Malayalam… May be I’ll write it as a post…..By learning the basics from my uncle (who is a Keralite) all I did was everyday homework… Seeing Malayalm movies, reading Malayalam Bible….Like that….

      I took HEBREW basic course in University… Indeed its a difficult language, not because of its script but its pronunciation…I found a few Urdu words in Hebrew…. So there a connection….its not that difficult as we prejudice…

      I am not that fluent in Hebrew and French…. Still learning them everyday πŸ˜‰

    1. he he he… Well, one day is not enough to explore this place… Kanyakumari is huge… Not just the ocean, there are also many other places… Falls and Ghats…. Have you visited Padmanabhapuram Palace?? Tirpparappu Falls??? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      There are also small beaches where the crowd is less but the view is great and serene… πŸ˜‰
