Its all about English Vinglish!

So the late Sridevi could go to USA without any knowledge of English whatsoever (I am referring to the movie English Vinglish) but she could never have got PR without proving her flair for this foreign language! Just extrapolating the storyline 😅
If you have ever travelled abroad, especially Europe or South America or South East Asia, you must have faced language problem. We Indians used to have a notion earlier, that it's mandatory to be fluent in English in order to explore the world. However this concept is wrong as half of the world does not even speak English! In Europe, except for the United Kingdom and Switzerland, people hardly know English! Each nation has their own mother tongue and they are very happy in keeping themselves restricted to their culture. The situation is similar in South America as well as South East Asia. In all, there are only a very few English speaking nations in the world; the major ones being United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada and of course India! Yes, India..the country where English is a foreign language is spoken the most.
So why the obsession with this alien language? Mandarin is the maximum spoken language in the world followed by Espanol and then our very own English. If the Chinese and Latinos can be so satisfied with their native tongues, why can't we be? Why do we need to adopt a foreign tongue? The answer is very simple...its because of the vastness of our nation.
Our motherland is not only vast in area but even more vast and diverse in language and culture. In this land of 122 major languages and 1599 others, the dialect changes every 50 kilometres. So it is palpable how diverse our country is! Even though Hindi is the official language, it is mostly spoken in North and Central India only. Rest of the parts are not that fluent in Hindi. Hence there rose a need for a single official language which is no one's own yet can be adapted by everyone. And that made English the official lingo...a language which is recognized all over the world and pan India too. Higher education is imparted only in English and hence if you want to progress further, English is mandatory. Also if you want to go /settle abroad for even higher education, English is indispensable! In a nutshell, English education is the secret path to development!

So what level of English is needed for higher education?
If you plan to study abroad, you need to be really proficient. However in order to get Student Visa or PR, just knowing Indian level English is not enough. I myself never planned to shift abroad but I have seen my friends working their butts off for a good score in IELTS and TOEFL. Students and /or PR aspirants spend wakeful nights to master this language for a smoother Visa process. Passing out with flying colours in an English Language Test was a mammoth task. But that was a decade back. With more flexible and faster ways to prove your mettle for English it's now #DefinitelyPTE
