Abstract
The present paper explores the subjugation of Indian culture by English in India. It interrogates how British Council plays a very important role in colonizing the culture of the country. The teaching of English language is deficient because there is a lack in communicative approach to language in third world countries. Eurocentrism has become a disease of the mind of a colonized country; it cannot think beyond its norms and beliefs. This paper tries to solve the problem of cultural colonization of English Language.
