I INSIST YOU DESIST!

I have had enough. This brutalisation has to be brooked. This kind of carnage cannot continue. Why do we commit, collude, conspire and then condone the crucifixion of the English language? Before anyone of you accuses me of cosying up to our erstwhile masters – brutal and marauding they may have been – let me point out that you would not be reading and comprehending this if it had not been for them.

Let me start with the word “lesser”.
Best Answer: Yes, “lesser” is a word, but not as you have used it. You are using it as an adverb and lesser is, in fact, a noun or an adjective.

“But I have known this for long”, your rejoinder. How long? A foot, a yard, or maybe a mile?

Then “comprise”. We keep writing that something comprises of. Comprise means “made up of”, so the word “of” is superfluous. Composed of, yes, comprise, yes.

“The Government would open the new road in six months”. “Would” is conditional. You mean will (in future). Your guides are Simon and Garfunkel and their song El Condor Pasa. “I’d rather be a sparrow than a snail. Yes I would, if I could”. Do not substitute would for will.

And it is HAL Airport Road, one of the best-equipped control towers in terms of avionics and electronics in South Asia. It is not Old Airport Road. There is nothing OLD about it!

Closer to Home: It is Kundalahalli NOT Kundanahalli. Kundanahalli does not exist.

January 1, 2019: A landmark moment for Jagriti. . Rebecca Spurgeon appointed as Artistic Director of Jagriti . Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, Founders of Jagriti, announced at the 8th birthday celebration on Sunday, 13 January that Rebecca Spurgeon has taken over as Artistic Director from Arundhati Raja. . On the handing over, @arundhatiraja said, "Rebecca has been with Jagriti from its inception. Having worked closely with both Jagdish and I for eight years, she has an understanding of Jagriti's vision but more importantly she has a finger on the pulse of the changing face of the performing arts nationally and globally. We are confident that she will take Jagriti forward into the next decade, as a vibrant and aspirational performance space." . @rebecca.spurgeon is currently Executive Producer at JAGRITI and heads the Theatre Arts Programme that offers training in Drama and prepares candidates for the Trinity College London assessments in Drama/Performance Arts and Communication Skills.
It's that time between Christmas and New Years, when we're not really sure what day it is. So we at Jagriti have decided to make merry, when the sun shines . . . . . #throwback #team #igers #potd #theatre #theatrelife #actorlife #theatre #theatrekid #theatrelife #backstage #wine #celebrate
