It’s Inglis; English is so last year…

The post by Patrix on (an linking to a post on) Marathi English reminded me of a flyer that a good friend of mine  (who now lives in Gurgaon, India) had emailed to me for my amusement. The text of her email said, “Folks, here in Haryana, we are accustomed to language of the finest quality. Here’s your first lesson in ‘Elegant English’… see attached.”

And here is the attached flyer [transcript follows]:
