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`.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reshuffled Sunday his council of ministers and portfolios of some of them, appointing the country’s second woman Defence Minister after Indira Gandhi. Nine new faces made their entry while four young junior ministers were rewarded for their good work with cabinet berths. 

 Nirmala Sitharaman, who is among the four elevated from minister of state with independent charge to the cabinet rank, was appointed Defence Minister.

She will take over the portfolio from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who returns from Japan in a couple of days after attending a meeting in that country.  Jaitley was holding the defence as an additional portfolio since Manohar Parrikar became Chief Minister of Goa state several months ago.

A former chief spokesman for the ruling BJP, the 58-year-old Sitharaman, who was minister of state for commerce and industry with independent charge, will now be part of the crucial Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), which also includes the prime minister, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.

Sitharaman is India`s first woman defence minister after Indira Gandhi who had held the portfolio as prime minister, media report said.
