    Great news! This is welcome news. If India really is interested in progressing as a world leader, it must jettison its obsession of universally imposing Hindi. English is the most practical and useable language in the country, and it is the only language that helps to a free ticket to acquiring universal knowledge and education. There is no 'national language' in the country, but it is high time that English be deemed as the true national language.
