India is a diverse and complex country. With its 1.2 billion people the country faces a lot of challenges - and possibilities. Over the latest decades India has risen from an undeveloped country to an economic superpower. How has this been possible?

Formal and Informal Language

You would use different language with a sister or brother than with a teacher or boss. You probably speak in another way at a party than at a business meeting. You could say the exact same words on the beach as in a museum, but it would probably sound quite different, even without you thinking about it.
