5.0 out of 5 stars A small, fun book of Hinglish 2 April 2010
This is a dinky little book, but it's packed full of interesting information about English as it is spoken in India, and also about Indian culture. Well and humorously written, you will soon pick up some useful colloquial phrases and words (such as "time pass" and "badmash") that will be really helpful and fun if you are taking a trip to India, or if you just want to understand Indian culture a bit better. It's small enough to slip into a pocket, so you can browse it on the plane, and it will definitely improve your knowledge and your ability to enjoy yourself in India.

This is a very helpful guide that can easily be taken with you because of it's size. There is a ton of wonderful and useful information for people going to India. Working at a studies abroad office, I will be able to use this resource to help students to prepare themselves.
