Rating details. Sort order. Jun 16, vik rated it it was amazing. Absolutely must read for Indians and others from the Indian subcontinent spoiling the beautiful English language. I am soon going to read 'Entry from Backside only' by Binoo K.
Jul 25, Aparna rated it it was amazing. Its a great book which tells us how we Indians inadvertently misuse English. I have learnt a great deal from this book and have stopped the usage of words like co-brother, good name etc. View 1 comment. Jul 24, Abhinav Neelam rated it it was ok. The kindest thing I can say about this book is that it's interesting. The author makes some good points about the British-era ridiculousness many English newspapers still use in their writing of the 'for your kind attention' variety.
I specifically liked the chapters on the use and abuse of the words 'also', 'both' and 'only', but the overall tone that drips with needless acid grates on you after a while. It may start off as mildly humorous, sort of like the ravings of a pointless uncle, but a The kindest thing I can say about this book is that it's interesting.
It may start off as mildly humorous, sort of like the ravings of a pointless uncle, but as I said, really grates after a couple of chapters. So much so that you begin to nitpick the author's writing style purely out of spite. Who the heck uses the word 'whirligig' in a serious publication? Ha, take that, author! Summary: the content's interesting but the delivery reaches towards the obnoxious. May 26, Ancie Wilfred rated it did not like it.
More of a grammar book than I'd have liked it to be, but written in a humourous style - which saves it, I'd say. I might refer to it when in doubt. Jan 28, Freeda Lobo rated it really liked it.

Indlish : The Book for Every English-Speaking Indian
The main purpose of this book is to address the difficulties that arise when Indians try to communicate in English via writing. The text will help readers answer questions such as what contributes to the way we speak, why do we speak English in a passive voice, but switch to active when speaking in our native tongues, and why do most of us fear reading and filing official documents. Although the list of these types of questions is infinite, Sanyal attempts to answer them all. In his book, he also traces the history of the English language in India drawing attention to the change in the quality of the language.
