English Vinglish: Languages and popular culture

"Any person living in India, or in most parts of the world for that matter, will have some encounter with the language called English. Whether one knows English or not is quite irrelevant. Everyday affairs, connections and official exchanges will have sporadic (or continuous) usage of this globally significant tongue. This engagement is neither culture specific nor is it an impediment in identity formation. The presence of the language is so subliminal, it seems it is hiding in plain sight. Through pop culture one can find how integrated English is to our daily living. This talk is a lighthearted look at the location of the language in our lives."
