From time to time, from clime to clime, idioms and phrases change like old wine in new bottle or new wine in old bottle. English is now an international language and foreign influences, particularly the American have brought the English idioms and phrases from the blue skies down to the green earth. Modern business, information media, newspapers, radio and television, as well as developments in science and technology, have brought new awareness into the English language and its idiomatic usages and flowery phrases. English in India today is more popular than it was ever before the independence, although the standard of English has fallen. Indian culture, civilization and politics have so much affected English that it has now come to be called "English". In this book we have illustrated the usage of English idioms phrases as these are being widely used and appreciated. Today the idiomatic use of a common word is more popular than the usage of an uncommon idiom. You can spin a fairy tale out of the commonest words!
