Problem in Pyg Latin functioning


I have completed piglatin translator fully and it also it interprets but it doesn't show the result that one should get i.e .I am not getting word+first word+ay

Welcome to pig latin translator!

pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
print original
word = "original"
word = original.lower()
first = word[0]
new_word = word + first + pyg
new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]

print 'empty'


On line 6 you should unquote original
