“Can you speak Indian for me?”

A common stereotype that is involved with Indians is the thought or belief that we all speak “Indian”. This is surely not the case. There is no such a language called “Indian”. To be “Indian” is considered your race, not your language. Hinduism is the religion we practice and Hindi is the most common language spoken amongst Indians, but even then there are several languages spoken in India and “Indian” is not one of them. (I was unable to find a culturally descriptive image about this that is under 15mb)
