But given both of those are so unlikely, and taking account of other howlers I've seen cited from online coursework here and on ELU, I would say the only real meaning to be extracted from OP's citation is that his source material came from a non-native speaker. My recommendation would be to discard it.
That's because although it's possible to imagine a native speaker using those words in either of the senses I've given, in practice they would never cite it as an example in an educational context. It looks to me like a daft example from a non-native speaker who shouldn't be teaching English, but I can't 100% rule out the possibility that some "Indian English" speakers may find it "acceptable".
-- What does "sleep early" mean?
When I got to the last sentence I started to feel uncomfortable. (I agree that the usage in question was unusual, but that's not my point).
The reference to India seemed to come out the blue! That comment seems undesirable to me, whether you'd describe it as racist, or simply being patronising towards non-native speakers. I'm not saying I found it offensive, therefore it should be removed. However it sounds like a comment that a good community would react against. So if I feel that way about a comment, is there a good way to react against it?
It seems obvious to me this is going to come up here, from commenters coming in from English-speaking countries.
If this is a heavily-moderated site like MetaFilter, I should flag it for the consideration of a moderator. http://blog.codinghorror.com/please-read-the-comments/ (just a reference, not deliberately a Jeff Atwood one, honest).
If all I can do is raise racism in a comment, that seems like quite a fighty deraily thing to do, by analogy to my experience of forums. Unless comments in StackExchange tend to be more contained or something, so that it wouldn't be a problem?
