Why some Indians behave in English-way at Indian airports?

wpid-wp-1439552372101.jpegIndia is a country of linguistic diversity. Various provinces have different primary languages like bengali in West Bengal, marathi in Maharashtra, odia in Orissa etc. Hindi is the national language of the country. However, there are many people in India who suddenly start behaving and talking in a different manner, as soon as they enter any airport premises in India .

Inside airports these people wouldn’t prefer speaking their non-english mother tongue nor their national language. The choice of language becomes english and behavior and bodily gestures used to communicate becomes more a sort of British or American type.

Is it bad to behave in this pattern or is it a good change? Not sure if it is good or bad, but it is probably a type of subconscious conflict with their own identity which they got by birth. Probably they would have been happier to be a citizen of the English speaking developed world.

If this observation by this author is true than the question is why these people behave in such different manner in airport premises.

One explanation might be that people are losing love and faith on their own language and feel English as a good way of reflecting themselves. Since most English speaking nations like America or England or Australia are economically more stable with better organised living conditions, people might not be loving their motherland (India) any more in their subconscious mind. In countries like India or Bangladesh or Nepal most of the time airports are one of the cleanest places of these nations where things work in organised way with some amount of discipline.

Anyway lets wrap up this discussion here. Before concluding I would like to say that this writing is based on my own individual observation which is not necessarily true. The author don’t intend to hurt anyone’s feeling in any manner, however if such has happened unknowingly please understand it as a pure coincidence rather than a cold minded intention.

Dhanyabad (thank you in Hindi).
