In a world where English is the lingua franca, those of us in the Anglosphere often take for granted the value of multilingualism. Shubh Drhuv delves into socioeconomic and cultural benefits of linguistic knowledge in today's world.

Shubh Druhv, like many second-generation Americans, has been brought up in a multilingual household, fostering within him a love for many languages. Drhuv's exposure to many languages -- ranging from English to German to Gujarati -- inspires him to promote multilingualism for the sake of a more communicative society.
