India has bought into the idea that progress is only possible with English medium studies. Engineering, medicine, law, High Courts function in India only in English resulting in the rush to English medium. The English Medium Myth dismantles this idea. People in the richest countries are studying sciences in their mother tongue. Numerous studies show that better science outcomes from students learning in the own language.
To take India on the next step to development, higher education needs to be broad-based and available in all Indian languages. The book contains specific policy proposals to make that a reality in a practical way and unleash Indias talent in a globalized world.

For anyone thinking about building Bharat from inside, this is a must read. You cannot build a nation outside its civilization and you cannot build a civilization using imported/foreign building blocks. it has to organically grow from inside and that's what this book is about. Even if English was a good language (fact is that it's utterly broken)it's a foreign language and should be kept at the door step (like every other non-english speaking developed country does)
