The service provides real-time translation between English and at least 12 other languages. But the system isnt flawless; some of the less common languages, like Hmong, need to be scheduled in advance. And there have been instances in which the interpreter speaks the wrong dialect of a language like Dari, spoken in several countries in Central Asia. Often a staff member can help. When someone shows up who doesnt speak English, “right away, we try to get them to at least say the language,” says Donna Paul, the longtime clinic manager. The health center has doctors and nurses who speak Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Tagalog and Spanish, and has hired administrative staff and medical assistants who speak Hmong and Mien. But even with the telephone service and a multilingual staff, challenges remain. Mien, a language spoken by some Indochinese refugees who fled to the United States during the Vietnam War, has no written language.

Desi Downtown? Well, it's not really downtown, being situated in Nottingham's Sheesha Corner, the bottom stub of Hockley which some cartographers would place outside the city centre. Even so, this restaurant is handy for Panthers fans and others exiting the Motorpoint Arena.I notice, by the way, that there are a lot of cars on nearby pavements. Given that the city has once again been short-changed by the Treasury, it may be prudent for the council to dispatch a couple of uniformed retainers to...

Punjab polls: BSP makes Phillaur seat fight toughEven as the BSP, which was founded by Punjabi Dalit icon Kashi Ram, has never been able to make its presence felt in the state that has the highest proportion of Dalits (31.9%), its presence in this constituency is expected to act as a spoiler for AAP.

There are other advantages of ambiguity as well. In a high voltage campaign such as Punjab both Congress and Akalis could highlight the fact that he is not only not Sikh but not even a Punjabi, and target him as an ‘outsider’. When politicians across the board are playing the Punjab vs Haryana card, AAP’s CM candidate being Haryanvi can be a liability. What could work for Kejriwal, though, is that cutting across such sectarian politics is the elite-subaltern divide, and AAP has been good at mobilising subaltern groups. Given that Punjab has the largest share of Dalits in its population with no clear political force to represent their interests, this is one segment that AAP will be targeting. It is not essential that every party declares a CM candidate; for instance, BJP has not done so in UP. Moreover, as we have seen in these post-truth times, election statements and promises do not matter once elections have been won.

So excited to be in a film about independence, 35 years after being in Gandhi, here was a film from a British Asian perspective, he was so excited about that, particularly being a Punjabi like myself. On set, he was very exuberant, very mischievious, but also very mindful of the significance of these events on independence, so for him to watch the film was going to be a great pleasure for me.

I know that in your last conversation with him, Om Puri had asked you when he was going to see the film, but sadly, of course, he hasn't had the opportunity to do that. No, it's very galling for me and very sad, because he was so about that, particularly being a Punjabi like myself.

He is a very gentle man and full of humour. Completely took me under his wing. I loved working with him. We were side-by-side, working as equals. His only regret with me is that I wasn't Punjabi enough for him. I remember one day, I said I fancy some Indian food.
