Diffident: संकोची

For Indo-Trinidadians, learning Standard Hindi is as good as learning an alien language. In fact, most of those who have learned Standard Hindi become diffident, and even apologetic when they have to use that language in interacting with Indian nationals.

ट्रिनीडाड के भारतीय मूल के लोगों के लिए हिंदी सीखना किसी अंजान भाषा को सीखने जैसा ही है। वस्तुस्थिति तो यह है कि जो हिंदी सीख भी लेते हैं, उन्हें भारतीयों के साथ बातचीत करने में अगर हिंदी बोलनी पड़े तो वे संकोची ही नहीं, बल्कि ख़ेदपूर्ण हो जाते हैं।

Synonyms: backward, bashful, coy, demure, shy, introverted, modest, recessive, retiring, self-effacing, sheepish, withdrawn, antisocial, lone, lone-wolf, unsociable, unsocial, uptight.
