The reason for not including India is simple: I’m not well read in it. Not writing about doesn’t mean I don’t acknowledge the nation. I figure it’s best not saying things I don’t know about.
By this reasoning, nothing we say will ever be complete, because there’ll always be something, someplace, or someone (which you call ‘exception’) that eludes discourse. My training is with Chinese philosophy, thus my unfortunate bias towards talking about specific states and languages.
Similarly, if your reasoning is right. No one will ever say anything ‘complete’ because no one knows every language in the world.

Thanks for responding. :)
