ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examined the English as a Second Language (ESL) curriculum as a reflection of the cultural and political milieu in higher education institutions in India. The ESL curriculum evolved after language and literature have diverged as separate disciplines heavily influenced by the British political system. It is in this context that ESL has been treated as part of an ideological and political objective of a privileged few.
