Indian English (Ii) - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey
Indian English is workable English,
With the efforts put in,
Tagged and added to,
Stitched and darned,
A rag-picker's English,
A ragged man's English is it.
Indian English is no English,
But is stitched English,
It coming to not
And one is trying to make it
Indian English is translator's English.
Indian English is somehow spoken English,
As the tongue twists and turns it not,
Gets stuck into
And the speakers fall short of
Searching for words,
Syntax and vocabulary
And pronunciation too fails it miserably.
And with it the dream of becoming an Englishman
An Indian rustic trying to speak in English
Not like an Englishman,
But as an Indian
Under the impact and impression
Of the mother tongue.
