I’m Amy Walker and I’m good at accents

If you live at YouTube, as many people do, you've probably seen Amy Walker's great video, in which the actress, writer, singer, dancer, surgeon and lawyer does 21 accents.

Quite impressive, no? I've played it several times at home and now my 2-year-old son is walking around saying, "I'm Amy Walker …"

Walker has focused on western accents, but if you're dying to hear a few Asian ones, 14-year-old Varun comes to the rescue. His Chinese and Japanese accents need some work (he's got a few years to practice before he opens for Russell Peters), but you'll love his Indian accent.

Very funny, Varun. Now tidy up your bedroom and start studying, so you don't have to say "Ouch!" with an Indian accent.

If you enjoyed this piece, you'll love Melvin's novel Bala Takes the Plunge, available in North America through Amazon.com and McNallyRobinson.com You can also find it at major bookstores in India and Sri Lanka or online at FlipKart, IndiaPlaza, FriendsofBooks or other sites. A number of readers have written reviews of the novel. An excerpt of the novel can be read here.


  1. Varun,
    You’re following in your Dad’s footsteps – good job!
