Although India is a former British colony and we have a tendency to speak English with a British accent,the situation seems now to have changed with with the incursion of American technology and culture. A lot of American TV programmes are available here and a lot of people go to the US rather than the UK for higher studies. Moreover, American English dominates most of the Internet . All these factors have contributed to the younger generation focusing more on American English. If this situation prevails, I am sure that British English will be thrown in the shade. The apparent predominance of American English can be attributed to the influence which the US exerts on international affairs and its global presence.
