To get a good grading in the assignment :- The essay “you comments” must explores its stated problem with commentary that is relevant and thoughtful, offers an insight that suggests some new conclusion from what has been explored, and is largely free of errors in mechanics (i.e., coherence, grammar, spelling, and punctuation).
For the India News Digest assignments, you should read regularly:
In addition to the above sites, you should also read in the following:
In addition, track the following:
- The temperature in Bombay and New Delhi,(make sure to indicate whether in Centigrade or Fahrenheit degrees), and
