I don't know much about the languages spoken in India, so I'm going to assume the speaker is speaking Hindi natively.

I've noticed that whenever a question is asked in an English forum, and it contains "we", the user is usually from India.

Example:

How can we configure a webserver to serve PHP content?

In this case, it's a person asking the question, but the question is made in the plural form. For western speakers, the question is most likely to be asked in the singular form.

Does this way of asking questions in the plural form come from the way questions are asked in Hindi? Or is it the default form used by "Indian English"?
