Q.

Again on English as a foreign langauge debate:
Even many schools in their curriculum list only
Chinese
French,
German
Italian
Japanese,
Portughese
Russian and
Spanish,
as foreign languages and certaily not English !
So why this feeling that English is a foreign language and when that too it has given Mother India a big edge in business Development and as emerging economic super power in the global village !!

Many reasons and arguments on this topic and the necessity of English can be found in the book "Imagining India" by Nandan Nilekani. The ideas and thoughts in his books are really osm!
