Hello! Thank you for your wonderful work, insights and optimism! In Pakistan, my home, there's some concern that Urdu is changing for the worse. It's not in danger of "dying" for now but increasingly English is integrating into everyday speech, and English words are replacing their Urdu counterparts. Do you think there's any benefit to young people mixing English and their native/ancestral language or do you think the language should be preserved in the most pure form possible? Does it have to be one or the other?
