A little conversation today made me wonder what is really the language of India.
I was approaching Raghuleela Mall (Vashi, Navi Mumbai) when I was stopped by a lady in an auto.
Lady: "Excuse me, is this the Inorbit Mall?"
Me: "No, Inorbit is on the other side." (while pointing towards the general direction)
Now, there is nothing much said here. But the entire conversation was carried out in English, not Hindi nor Marathi. Two Indians in India holding a random conversation asking for directions in a foreign language. Just made me wonder "Is English now becoming the preferred language for general communication in India.?"
