in the near, distant future
the whole world will one day speak only english and india will be its call centre. but how can india be the world's call centre, or back office as some say, if other poor countries (like the afghans, the somalis, the laotians, the haitians etc) also learn to speak english? wouldn't that rob us of our only advantage (over the afghans, the somalis, the laotians, the haitians etc): our ability to speak english? now, wait a minute- is that our only advantage? isn't being poor our other major advantage? we should somehow learn the trick to do both at the same time- learn english and strive to remain poor (poorer than the afghans, the somalis, the laotians, the haitians etc, if possible) - if we wish to live upto our reputation as the world's back office and become a rich country, one day. in the near, distant future.
