But Grammar can do the Charisma!!!!!! (ROYALLY)

I called up a friend and so went the conversation:

“Hi, you have been so busy over the last week.”

“Ya! Sorta! My cousin was to be married off and it took a lot of my time.”

“But you must be free now”

“Sure, I am as the marriage is over.”

I said, What? What happened? Why did she divorce? And what were you so busy about? Looking for the best lawyer in the country?

“Are you outta your wits? She has just gotten married – how could you even think of a divorce?” Are you a friend?

“Come on, you just said the marriage is over”

(What to do? My friend studied science. He thought English grammar is a bullshit thing to spend time behind. He never attended English classes. He should have said, ‘wedding is over’ instead of ‘marriage is over’)

Just like Love, Grammar can also do the miracles!!! (And ROYALLY)

Let’s see some example

  • Looking radiant in my dress, my boyfriend insisted on taking me to the discotheque. (We really do not know if the guy is a cross-dresser, but please do not write this to your parents. Do not know what will they think of you)

 

  • Man to his belle (n. a beautiful woman): Tired of cleaning yourself? Let me do it. (Hahahahah)

 

 

  • A newspaper headline: Two Soviet ships collide, one dies. (I really want see how a ship dies)

 

  • Are you cooking yourself? (Oh no!! This is really gonna be painful)

 

 

  • He is a man who cares (that is so nice of him). He is a man. Who cares?  (What the heck?)

 

  • The boss says, “The employee is a fool.” (Yes, the boss is always right and employee is always a fool). The boss, says the employee, is a fool. (this employee knows that the grammar can ROYALLY do the miracles)

 

 

 

Meanwhile an email received from one of the largest online shopping portals in the Middle East region.

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for submitting your application for the position of Social Media Specialist and your interest in Namshi. If your application is successful we will (yes, we are a team!) contact you shortly. If you have not heard from us (Still we are!!) within the next 2 weeks, I am (But you know, as a team we cannot be afraid so we said ‘I’) afraid your application at this time has been unsuccessful. We will (and again we are a team!) keep your resume on our records and review it against any future vacancies.

Best regards,
Namshi Hiring Team

The confusion is whether an email is written by a team or by an individual.

So, let’s not be the Namshi Hiring Team. Do not be the man to a belle or a newspaper headline. Quest4Knowledge is all set to let go of these miraculous mistakes. 

Keep your eyes out (and yes brain in) at this space for more on the grammar……..

As we start, Loving can do the miracles!!!!

Yes! You are not alone who really loved to hate grammar at the school. We renamed the famous grammar authors as Wrench and Hammer, instead of Wren and Martin, for our poor brains to be able to bare them.
But why grammar is so important? Read the following two letters Bunty received from Babli…
Letter 1:
Dear Bunty,
I want a man who knows what a love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other man. I yearn (verb: have an intense feeling of longing for something, typically something that one has lost or been separated from, yes, we do not want you to take paint to open a dictionary) for you. I have no feeling whatsoever when we are apart (Really? This is bullshit). I can forever be happy – will you let me be yours?
Yours,
Babli
Letter 2:
Dear Bunty,
I want a man who knows what a love is. All about you are generous, kind, thoughtful people, who are not like you (Oh my God, what the heck?). Admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me. For the other man, I yearn (Oops!). For you, I have no feeling whatsoever. When we are apart, I can forever be happy (hahahahaha). Will you let me be?
Yours,
Babli
Funny, isn’t it?
The same words in both letters but they both convey totally different meaning. Not sure about Babli but Bunty, as he realizes how important grammar is, has asked us to start writing grammar on QuestForKnowledge. But this is not only for Bunty or Babli but for each one who does not want to lose his or her love again after writing an English Love Letter.
Keep your eyes out on this space for your everyday grammar dose.
