Either it's young or old , it's not their english but their sincere communication is more important. Human brain understands all sincere communications and it has a phenomenal power of mind . Both life and business don't run by IIT's and IIM's ..it's the umadmi , common public who runs the show . For them any language , hindi ,inglish , hinglish are ok if communication is sincere. I'm not telling that we should not make it correct but in our day to day life ,it's emotional communication , rather than hi- fi communication , that works. For example , read the following few lines and tell me whether u have understood it ??

What will you gain by this (other than humiliating him). Only if you an accomplished communicater who understands the sensitivies of giving effective feedback, must you attempt to do this
