    Default Important

    Dear Friends,



    Some times, I come across sentences like - parched, he still went ahead on his ways & being parched, he still went ahead on his ways - but i fail to comprehend as to which one is correct and why it is correct?

    I earnestly request you to answer to me asap. Really appreciate your help!

    Welcome to the forum, Satishm.

    They are both acceptable (although "went ahead on his ways" is rather clunky).

    Please note the corrections I have made to your post in red above. Please don't write things like "please answer me asap". We are volunteers and we work at our own pace.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
