Summarize the following passage in about 25 words and give a suitable title. 10
English education and English language have done immense good to India, in spite of their
glaring drawbacks. The notions of democracy and self?government are the products of English
education. Those who fought and died for mother India?s freedom were nursed in the cradle of
English thought and culture. The West has made contributions to the East. The history of
Europe has fired the hearts of out leaders. Our struggle for freedom has been inspired by the
struggles for freedom in England, America and France. If our leaders were ignorant of English
and if they had not studied this language, how could they have been inspired by these heroic
struggles for freedom in other lands? English, therefore, did us great good in the past and if
properly studied, will do immense good in future.
