Finally after 12 years after declaring in 2000 that English is a compulsory subject in Government Schools,the Maharashtra State Government has engaged British Council to face to face train 920 selected Teachers to teach English ~who in turn will impart the Training to 67000 Teachers ~ one per school
This will be under the Programme , Maharashtra – English Language Initiative for Primary Schools (M-ELIPS)
This is to bridge the gap between intent and outcome and ensure that English is not uttered by Teachers like this as below
Did I hear a Patriotic Cry “Who Learn to want English !?”
Some hilarious instances I recall when serving with KPMG overseas in the 1980s ~ an Indian candidate was not selected and he wrote a letter to my head thanking him for the opportunity and which ended like this “…when in Bombay give me chance to hospitalise you ” !!!
….another one was when an office driver took an incoming call from a Client and then left a message on the desk of a head ” client called and you not home also had massage with wife ” !!!
