I was born in India and now a citizen of United States. I started studying English from my elementary school. I learned some of my English grammar from the famous Wren and Martin book (High School English Grammar book written for the children of British officers resident in India and hence may be the most popular grammar book in India). It was my dad’s school text book and he gave it to me when I was in middle school. My inspiration to write good English comes from my dad. My dad used to be a consumer rights activist. He used to spend time writing letters and petitions on behalf of others in reasonably good English. I found this board today, liked it and started contributing.
