English is now the fastest growing of all the Indian languages

Most Indians are—or were—bilingual; as Ramachandra Guha warns, the danger for many of the present generations is that they will be monolingual, or have only functional fluency in any of the languages they occupy, like tenants in rented houses, never completely at ease. Recent Census figures indicate a massive shift: English is now the fastest growing of all the Indian languages, overtaking languages like Bengali or Malayalam or Tamil as the most widely spoken second language across the country.
