Definition

Two firangi goras, Messrs. PC Wren and H Martin, who torture school-children and JAMmers in India with arcane rules of tenses, plurals, nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, hanging-gerunds, past-participles, transitive verbs, subjunctives and conjunctives, active and passive, direct and indirect, and the dreaded subject-verb-object triumvirate.

Children learnt very quickly that if they wanted future perfect, they had to endure present tense.

Usage

"He's a very good speaker, I agree. But he has two great enemies - Wren and Martin."
