US and UK English Daze is indeed damn amazing. Ever tried to avert this maze? I did. I honestly love to write English. But as I started exploring my love, I was perplexed whether I am in love with American or British English. Originally belonging to India, my love for Indian English is obvious, but unfortunately, we do not have our own Standard English format.
The fact that British Empire ruled us for good 200 years could be cited as a reason to say that Indians follow UK English. But that was past, at present the world and so the Indians eat, live, earn and even love to die American way They just get carried away too much I must say.
Hence, if you are a professional writer from India and have clients from both the Queen's as well as Obama's land, things are not going to be that flowery. You need to be accurate in writing as well as speaking correct US and UK English; else it would be a straight forward rejection without any second chance.
