I'd teach my kids English. My/Our mother tongue. I learnt hindi/Punjabi from my grandparents & also i stayed in India for 2 years. But I'd let my kids decide if they wanna learn hindi/punjabi or not. My parents dun speak hindi/punjabi....infact nobody speaks hindi/punjabi in our family so i dun think my kids wud b into hindi/punjabi much.

I think first - The mother tongue- it has extra touch of comfort & sense of belonging while communicating..! We have great litreture in every language & to have the child a willingful access to them they have to love their mother tongue.
Global Language has to be learnt so that you don't face limitations anywhere.
National language gives you joy pride of being & interacting with citizens there..
After all human being is a social animal & more the ways of communication you know better you enjoy life around you !

Personally, I feel that the best way to teach children any language is each of the member of the family speak in a different language so as to teach the child the basic language.. for eg: Mother can speak in Eng/Mother tounge, Father can speak hindi and Grand Parents can speak in mother toungue, the biggest advantage of this, is the child can learn languages at a time
Like if U r stayin in india, in mumbai then 1. Firstly, the child shud be taught atleasst some basic English and mother toungue, little hindi and marathi
Rest he can speak with his school-mates adn teachers for fluency
