Foreign Accent Syndrome - Half of Urban India got it

I have a friend from school days (who shall remain unnamed here), who first made a trip to the UK for ~ 3 months in 1996 or so.

When he came back from UK, his adopted accent was something we had bear for ~ 2 years.

And of course in Delhi, you have all those with their uncle jis and aunty ji in SouthHall or Birmingham or Amreeeca, it is seriously not funny.

The "American" accent or whatever it is assumed to be is the more prevalent one in South Delhi.

So imagine ending up on this ABC News story.

Apparently this is a mental disorder. No, I am not making this up. :-)
