Actually -be- holds the correct view that the captial letters are unnecessary for the English language (or for similar european language). No Indian language has capital letters, but have larger more phonetic alphabet. After all, when you have the simplicity of 26 letters, who force everyone (especially children) to learn another 26 ? !!

Raju, I still do not meet the Indian participant here...
Ram, "another 26 letters"?? No, in english, bulgarian etc. languages the capital and the small one letters are almost the same, so even children do not have problem with it. But probably you are right that some other languages do not have capital letters.
