international stage. Since developed countries are taking interest in
doing business with India, companies whether in IT or non-IT sectors
are now seeking multilingual or bilingual professionals who can cater

that may still be explored but where communication presents a barrier

as well as English. Also, foreign languages are indispensable for
strengthening the security network of India.
