And by Indian members I mean the cool ones that we love, such as:

Rajesh
Vikram
Vasudevan
Rama
S. Senthil Kumar
Nish
And I know there are a number of other guys I like, but can't remember their names.

Anyway.

I've been to India several times. Well, more than several, but several will do. What always amazes me is that wherever I go, whatever I'm doing there's always someone who can come and tell me what I'm doing wrong, in better English than I speak; be it trying to catch a taxi in Mumbai or fending off tigers in some far off village in the sticks. No matter where I am in the sub-continent, there's always some local to give me a disapproving look and explain to me in my own language where I'm going wrong. This is cool, but not my question Smile | :)

What I want to know is - speaking no Indian language (although I got some swear words in Hindi pretty much nailed) myself - what the relationship between the different languages spoken in India are. Are they as different as, say, French and English, more different or completely different as say French and English vs Japanese?

(I asked a couple of Indian friends, when I was over last, what they thought but the last thing I remember was getting very drunk and everything after that got a bit hazy Smile | :) )
