Their past was being one of the most civilised countries in the world. After the colonisation, they lose their mother tongue. They think English is superior to their own Indian languages.



In fact English serves as a bridge. By using English nobody has to feel left out. What if suddenly the Hindus sayHindi will be the only official language?

Betrayed, again?

The woman in the photo looks rather unhappy.

Has she been betrayed?

Yes, it must be very embarrassing for Mr. Manmohan Singh having to speak in English, and not in an Indian dialect to his fellow Parlimentarians in New Dehli, when delievering his PM's question time.

I've heard the deabates in the Indian parliament, where they all squabble in incomprehensible broken English.

If I was an Indian, I would be very ashamed.

I'm told, China has more dialects than India, yet we Chinese have managed to elect the Beigin twang, Putonghua (Mandarin), as the country's Mother tongue.

Why after 62 years, Indians are still clingingto the old colonial speak, as the language of their intelligentsia?

No wonder the Anglos like India.

It's home from home.

Everything is written in English.

All government staff must speak English.

I often read on net complaint from Anglos returning from China:

"...bloody Chinese road signs are all in Chinese!"  

Facking ignoramus pillocks!
