The English language, which is not our mother tongue, is most widely and affluently spoken in India. We have 5,600 newspapers, 35,000 magazines published in over 21 languages for a population of 125 crores. We are the third largest nation in the world of doctors, engineers and scientist. We possess the third largest army in the world.
We have reached the moon and back but we are still considered to be the land of snake charmers. Though not for long, thanks to the dynamic leadership of Mr. Narendra Modi.
