Nonsense, did I hear??
Re: "This is a nonsense, as some of the best English spoken in the world today hails from India and Pakistan. "|
Are you of Indian or Pakistani origin? If not, then you must be kidding!! I quote an ENGLISH ( I mean ANGLO-SAXON English from England, home and birth place of the English language) saying:
"English was born in England, got sick in America and DIED in India!"
Remember, "English" means the language INVENTED and SPOKEN by the ENGLISH people and NOT by some SUBSERVIENT FORMER COLONIZED SUBJECTS.
I have spoken in English with THOUSANDS of Indians and Pakistanis and I have come to the conclusion that the ONLY ones who can speak PROPER English are from those who were BORN( or went to school there from a very young age) in England and of these, 99% of them have forgotten or CAN'T even speak their own forefathers' native URDU, PASHTUN, GUJURATI, BENGALI, HINDI, etc., languages!!( This applies to people from other parts of the world too.)
If one were to read and scrutinize the ENGLISH language newspapers published daily in Pakistan or India, s/he would easily detect that the articles in those papers were NOT written by native English-speakers despite having gone through the watchful eyes of the English language proficient editors and proof-readers!!
In my personal opinion, if China were to encourage schools in China to have English language teachers from India and Pakistan, then, I wouldn't be surprised if the ENGLISH were to change their saying to:-
"English was born in England, got sick in America, died in India and GOT CREMATED IN CHINA!!!"
