Xenolalia : 100 words

When Rehaan was three, he picked up hindi and urdu words. His family was amazed at his learning speed. As years passed by, he kept on speaking some incomprehensible words. Nobody in village understood what he spoke. The news spread like wildfire. Media got involved and it was found that he knew twelve languages at the age of ten. The world had found a new child prodigy. His fame grew wide and far. When questioned about how he knew so many languages, little Rehaan had no answers. Little did the world know that he remembered languages from his previous births.  



P.S. – Xenolalia is the ability to speak in a foreign language which a person has not learned nor been exposed to.  

This post is written as a part of April A to Z Challenge 2014 under Non-Themed category. I am doing two posts for this Challenge and Themed posts can be found here.
