Yes very much true, Sir. It is also a symbol of British Slavery 250 yrs
During Muslim Rule ~ 600 yrs Urdu/Parsi had same status in India.
English has become Global Language for communication in
modern times, and India is at advantageous position now-a-days.

If anybody says it is not regarded as status symbonl he is far away from truth.Its srongly regarded and people generally boast of this ability to prove their superiority which is very sad a story of society.Similarly sending children to english medium school is regarded as a status symbol/those who dont agree -r they educate their children from schools those impart education in their mother language.?

In Public Ungertakings all the admins have to follow/use the bilingual formats .Once upon a time English speakers had the higher status but today people just do not pay much attention.
