Why do Indians use English daily?

India was a British colony. English is the language of the colonizer. A friend from India once told me he was sad to see billions of Indians primarily use English in their daily lives and it's a disgrace.

i don't think that u will agree with this. as we all know that we have been influenced by the british to speak and converse in english. even i can say that u r in mylot and then u r using english as ur communication so why?? english has become the basic language which is used all over the world, almost everywhere. if u go to any alien country then only english can save u from being lost as u will interact with anyone and then u will have to do this in english. even u spend ur hours on net and most of the sites are there in english, so if u neglect english then i think probably u r neglecting urself.
