This book examines the relationship between the English language and growth - economic and inclusive - in India. It explores why English continues to be the language of aspiration long after Independence. With the second largest English-speaking population in the world today, India is testimonial to how a linguistic legacy continues to cast a long shadow on its contemporary discourse in the economic arena.

The volume:

  • Draws in the latest India Human Development Survey data.
  • Investigates the relationship between the language and economic indicators such as wages, household income and state growth.
  • Purther investigates the role of English language in the inclusivity of growth.
  • Provides a snapshot of the pedagogy of English in the Indian education system.
