    The Chinese posters have made many a caustic remarks about India using the English language and on its history.

    But China takes the cake.

    They are the wannabe Europeans! :rofl:

    It does show how much they hate being Chinese and instead feel Europe is a better choice for Chinese to be socially acceptable.

    What inferiority complex!

    It must be excruciating pain everytime Ray realizes that his native language is being replaced by an alien language, it is like the core of Indian culture is being lost.

    He has to turn to China for comfort..

    Poor man.

    We are bilingual, in most cases trilingual. I speak four languages. So don't worry about such things.

    All that is fine, but tell me one thing. When the weather gets even a little cold, why do you Chinese girls immediately start wearing awesome furs and coats, but still continue wearing very short skirts? Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? :noidea:

    In India, it is essential to speak not one language, but three.

    Mother Tongue, Hindi and English.

    One will never lose touch with his own language.

    Understand India before getting a metaphoric orgasm.

    I am sure you are thrilled replicating Europe since you feel China is a bit infra dig!

    As far as I go, I know 5 Indian languages and 3 foreign languages.

    I not only know Indian culture, but have experienced some other cultures too!

    Indeed.

    They have gone one notch higher - they feel it is their national birthright!

    Ya , everywhere property developers build replicas of western architeture, Baroque, Gothic :rofl:

    That's nothing new as Chinese started to appreciate western architecture long time back. There's a saying "the top 3 comforts in life: marry a Japanese woman, live in a western house but still have Chinese cuisine" .

    Chinese culture is basically very tolerant and all inclusive with a Confucian and Tao core deep inside. For example in Tang Dynasty it was fashionable to wear "western" nomads costumes (Xinjiang) and dance their dances while abandoning antique Han robes (now it's called kimono in Japan)

    Chinese won't be too shy to adopt anything that's felt superior. Pluralism in unity.

    Why are you making fun of the Chinese for this?

    Some people in Bihar are about to copy the Angkor Wat.

    You can boast about your language diversity as much as you want, but one simple question is gonna bust all of your delusions.

    Could Manmohan Singh be the Prime Minister of India if he doesn't speak English? Or Could anyone be the PM of India without mastering English?

    English is replacing every single native language of India, because the excessive diversity of Indian language makes none of them strong enough to withstand the aggressive invasion of English. It is just a matter of time that India becomes a real English speaking country where people only speak English, especially if we take it into consideration that India aspires to be one.

    Replicating Europe village is nothing comparable to replacing native language with an alien language, the former is adding some ingredient into the main course, while the latter is having a different main course.

    Why a Japanese woman ? :confused:


    The proper saying is "Unity in diversity" and it has an Indian trademark. You can't copy that too. :tsk:

    Breaking from the Shaivism tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu.

    HIndusim is very much Indian! ;)

    The Angkor Wat is itself an example of Indic architecture. Copying the Angkor Wat can't be compared with Asian countries copying Western architecture.

    Really? In China? So Hanization is a myth and the cultural revolution was just a fable?
