    India needs to adopt another colonial language and discard English. This anglo language hurts India more than anything. I propose that a european language that had a historical presence in India be made India's national language. So according to wikipedia, there are 4 such candidates : Danish, Dutch, French and Portuguese. ALl of these languages were spoken because these countries ruled over parts of India. Out of these, French and Portuguese look to be the strongest candidates since Dutch and Danish barely made an impact on INdia as a whole, where as French influence is still visible in Pondicherry and Portuguese influence is visible in Goa. Out of these, the most widely spoken is Portuguese which is spoken as a native language by more than 200 million people. In order to gain the benefit of globalization, India should adopt the most widely spoken language, hence India should adopt Portuguese. Here are few compelling reasons why English should be banned and replaced with Portuguese:

    1) As the only south asian nation who speaks it, India will become insulated from Pakistan and its neighbours. No more Pakistani trolling on youtube or on forums. They will not have access to Indian media at all.
    2) India is insulated from the racist Anglo saxon worldview. Since most Indians won't speak english, they won't swallow Anglo propaganda against Indians en masse like they do now. As a result, Indians will stop hating themselves.
    3) India's verbal intelligence will rise dramatically. Portuguese is a developed language and once all Indians know it, there will be no need to learn english and hence, the language will be spoken in its pure form.
    4) Portuguese naturally suits Indians better than English. Romance languages are closer to Indic languages in their pronunciation. English is unnatural and that is why Indians speak it with a bad accent.
    5) Anglo media will not be able to humiliate India as easily since they will not be able to access Indian media as easily.
    6) India will establish relations with other portuguese speaking countries like Brazil, Portugal, Angola etc.. These countries, with the exception of Portugal, are developing countries just like India and are on the rise. The english speaking world is decadent and on the decline.
    7) Cultural exchange between between Brazil and India will also help to moderate the islamic influence in India. Since Brazil is more westernized and less stratified on a racial basis, it will help speed up the process of dismantlement of the cast system. The reason why English hasn't been able to do this is because it is a global language and therefore, not associated with any particular country.
    There are probably lots of more reasons but I just came up with this off the top of my head. What do you think? Be open minded.

    Within about 10 years, India will become the largest English speaking nation in the world. As a result, it will have a large impact on the West in terms of spreading Indian ideas, influence and power. The Indian IT industry is already a small example of what can be achieved when the language of business and technology is the same. Today Indian IT professionals work in every part of the globe, and a major reason for their success is the common language.

    A common language leads to less conflict, greater integration and if the numbers are on your side, great power. Why would you want to give that up? The reasons you listed are childish and your post seems more a satire than a serious proposal.

    A colonial language is there because it became a pan India language and a language for higher education and administration.

    In the Mughal times, it was Persian, which was considered the language of culture and science.

    Which language should be the language of India?

    We should not adopt any other languages.

    We have enough languages that we cant control properly.

    I say India's National Language should be Hinglish-Hindi+English written in Roman. Some words can be taken from other local languages. It will be language for Central Government and State Governments should follow their respective regional languages. Hindi and Hinglish will be different.

    By the way what about if we accept German or Deutsch? Screw English.

    Nice trolling, made me laugh. You're though, I do hate poor people. That's true.

    Portuguese should be made the sole national language of India.

    Germans are racist and ugly. Don't know why you like them so much. I've been to Germany. They are ugly as hell and have bad teeth like the British. They are also fat just like the Americans.
    Brazilians have good teeth unlike the hideous Germans and the British. Actually, Europeans in general don't take care of their teeth. People in the New World (North + South America) have great teeth and spend more money on hygience.
    How many people in India floss their teeth twice a day? Probably a tiny percentage. In Brazil, EVERYONE flosses their teeth 2-3 times a day.

    British screwed India so bad yet did not change its culture at all. India remains as conservative as ever, owing to the historical islamic influence. India is more conservative than some middle eastern countries, certainly more than Turkey. Goans seem to be less conservative and more liberated. The Portuguese, wherever they went, left remnants of its culture and promoted interracial marriage unlike the British prudes. India would be better off discarding english and adopting the Goan identity.

    it has been known as the language which provides employment. and this way, was studied as the second language.......

    and the way western firms are losing ground, we will see a similar rise in other languages like Mandarin, for example :ranger:
