The book is incomprehensible in many ways. There is a lot of research the author has done however Hindi used is very difficult to understand. I for the most part have skimmed through the pages. Only read in case you want to know the recommendations for making Hindi popular among indian masses. The book talks about the effects of using english. I to be honest found it very dry & uninteresting. There is no humor,no storytelling, its just plain well researched piece of work.
