Summary of the Book. The Indian English has become a language of its own today. Obviously, English wouldn’t have come to us without the Britishers but it stayed here and thrived only because Indians found English and everything it stands for, quite irresistable.

Victor Mike rated it liked it Sep 16, I’m an ou A breezy but flippant walk through aspects of Indian English. Whimsical rhyming ‘Don’t be silly Lily’, etc; ‘shilly shally’. Have You Applied for Bail.
