Its a good one. At the same time it shows that basically when a person speaks and studies in hindi or vernacular language, English language does not come naturally to him. So as in this case many people first think in their mother tongue or Hindi and then literally try to translate in English. That doesn't mean that these people are not intelligent, it only shows that they are weak in English and in our country where most people are obsessed with English and it is considered as an important language. Russians, Chinese, Germans, Japanese and many other countries take great pride in their native language and are not as crazy for English as we Indians. Unfortunately, higher studies in India are in English only and hence many of our native languages arw dying a natural death, which is very unfortunate as we should make efforts to save our arts and culture and the multiple languages and dialects are also a part of our cultural heritage.

Itz not surprising that a guy knows English so badly....bcz English is not the Indian Language...although itz spoken by nearly all the educated Indians....however a broken English expression by a semi literate Indian is never to be considered a matter of joke .... rather it should be properly analysed by the experts to access his motive of expression...I 've full sympathy with the guy.......
