British has left India long back but not from our mindEven after 70 years of our Independence, we judge our education or knowledge by the measurements of English language. The better you know English, the more respect you get in India regardless of how you live or what you do in your daily life. If you don't have command in English, you are a kindergarten kind of person no matter how inteligent or honest you are in your field.
I am not criticising a Language and I can't. A language is great in itself that no one can insult it. Having fluency in any language is an asset to have specially in English which is spoken in world over. But this should not be a criteria to tag a person with knowledge. The problem start when the experts in English start behaving as if they have the only right to the most knowledgeable person. The problem start when the person who is weak in English are looked below par level in society.
It seems only our country has got independent and not our soul and mind.
