Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

Meanwhile, Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said “all efforts” were being made to trace the missing Indian Air Force (IAF) AN 32 transport plane with 29 on board.

According to reports, IAF Chief Arup Raha has briefed the Defence Minister on the matter, said a report The Statesman ran online.

A massive search and rescue operation has been launched by the IAF, Navy and the Coast Guard, deploying five aircraft and 13 ships for tracking the plane which made the last radio contact at 8.46 am.
