    Why & How English has become a language here:
    Already in the 1500s, European countries started to explore India and establish colonies there. Britain started ruling over India, and from 1858 Britain controlled India totally. The British policy wanted to create an Indian class who should think like the British, and they built schools and universities based on the British models. The schools and universities had therefore a lot of emphasis in the English language, and the Indians who educated there had to learn English. English became the first language in Indian education. English was preferred by many Indians, and looked at as a key towards success. Even after India’s independence in 1947, English remained the main language of India.
