Do the people whose first vernacular is English ever find faults with erroneous English spoken by the people whose mother tongue is not English Of course not so much as of the English-speaking so called elites residing in a country that has gained political freedom for over 65 years yet has successfully cherished colonial hang-over. Problems are not with the rustic folks but with the urban society that holds the fallacious phrase COMMUNICATION SKILL as the sceptre to wage over the society as well as the crown suggesting sophistication. When this conviction remains deep-seated the detrimental off-shoot is that the English-mouthed school children frown at jeer at mock at and laugh at their begetters with frailty in English. Not knowing English may be taken for a minor matter to some section but it proves a major matter if not a syndrome to middle-class upper-middle class societies branded as elegant. English Vinglish underscores this dangerous syndrome of colonial inerta and culminates with a sound triumphant message. The movie starts with preparing Ladoos a typical Indian sweet with an ethnic and ritual sagacity. In the film the exposure of ladoos is not just in order to show the occupation of Shashi but to underline her ceaseless effort to maintain a bond of sweet relation marked as entrepreneur in one of the vital scenes. Shashi is through her toil and moil for the sake of the good of all the members of family and in return she is prone to humiliation by her husband and daughter with a single hoax she is not at home in English. Her impeccable sacrifices sincerity and selflessness are microscoped through the macroscope of a foreign language.
