In a country which has more than a 100 languages, English has become one of the most prominent ones. The use of English has become a necessity in India. It has been given prime importance as children have been taught English right from their kinder garden to middle school and high school. The use of English language in India was limited before the invasion of the British. Since the set up of East India Company the common language spoken amongst the British slowly started to spread to the people of India. The Indian workers working for the British had to learn the language as it was their only mode of communication, who knew then that this would break down a huge barrier as India was now under the influence of the English language. Even then the fluency and the basic use of the English language was limited but literature in India was always respected as people like Bharathiar, Thirukkural, Rabindranath Tagore and a lot of others works were regarded as national treasures.

Our research paper brings out the past present and future of English in India and how it has affected our society and molded the culture that we live in. the way in which the society has also helped in changing the language. The “social networking era” where everything is in English has helped a lot of teenagers and others to improve their language. The growth of the country is so rapid that even the language is growing along with it. The importance of the English language is brought out in this article and how the methods of its usage affect the current generation compared to how it was in the previous generation and what the future hold for English in India is also discussed in this article.
