I consider myself a global citizen and so I'm proud that English, rather than some vernacular tongue, is my native language. Some of the best English is spoken and written in India or by Indians these days and the trend is fast catching on. Indian languages have a limited reach and are not sufficiently developed to serve as vehicles for communicating sophisticated/complex ideas.
Then why can't I ever understand the guys in the call centers when I call customer service?

INDIAN HYPOCRISY

India's foray into space and missile technology is mostly all about critical Russian inputs.

The campuses of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) where all the so-called indigenous work in designing and engineering is done is teeming with Russian scientists and engineers who're the main brains behind India's space and missile hi tech feats.

None of this this is reported in the mainstream media.

The Indians borrow, use the working knowledge of foreign experts, purchase and hire hi tech in these subjects and in other cutting edge fields and when the product is completed make grand announcements about how "advanced" India is in these frontier disciplines and the sheeple drawn from all strata of society gullible lap up these tall stories and puff their chests in pride and make fools of themselves in the bargain, while those few in the know have a good laugh at the inferiority of Indian scientists and engineers and at the stupidity of the credulous public.

I was never fooled by all the hype and hoopla surrounding the achievements of India in science and tech since back at IIT, I saw most students lacking a natural aptitude for hands on engineering or being in-adept in the pure science labs and as for creativity well the bar is low or almost zero.

Indian scientists/techies who work abroad, too, may be good university profs teaching standard text book stuff but are not world leaders in their chosen field but are mere imitators or at the most make a small innovation in a particular area of narrow expertise.

As for Indian billionaires, well, they're blood and scam billionaires.

Just a handful of Indian speak great English and are at home with Western mannerisms, while the rest are mere warblers who're neither fluent nor sufficiently westernized.

Now, where you are concerned:

To a classy Indian with deep- exposure to the West, your standard of English and poise that seep through your posts are of a low quality by which I mean that you come across as a lower middle class American lacking in poise, fluency, intellect and sophistication.

If you come to the swanky areas in Mumbai or if you happen to visit say a place like the Wasabi or the Zodiac Grill in the Taj you'll be the butt of jokes and looked down upon for being so crass.

Chill.

The upper crust Indians are in a class of their own and more so if they happen to have a healthy mix of the best of Indic and Western traditions.

Serious condemnation is pouring in from the Indian public in view of the super-extravagant 66 million Euros that industrialist Promod Mittal recently spent on his daughter's marriage in Barcelona. He's a typical upstart with shady dealings in business - another Indian blood and scam billionaire. LOL.

The Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani has built a 27 storied cantilevered mansion costing $ 2 billion on Mumbai's uber-stylish Altamount Road at the end where Carmichael Road just begins. It's reported to be the most expensive residence in the world. The Ambanis are dyed-in-the-wool blood and scam billionaires who will stoop to any level to get ahead in business. LOL.

You're assuming (all evidence to the contrary) that he actually lives in those neighbourhoods and didn't just Google 'Where do people in India who eat regularly live?'
