Sentence is Grammatically correct or wrong?


While writing a letter to the Manager of my company I've started the letter as:

"I, Raju Saha, working in your esteemed organisation, in Accounts Department".


Now Raju Saha is my name, and I'd like to know whether this sentence is grammatically correct or wrong, with specific reason.


Please revert to my mail id:

This introduction seems very formal, but it is almost perfectly correct.  I suggest that you add a definite article - 'the' - before Accounts Department.  We use 'the' to designate that this is a particular accounts department for the organisation.  We generally use 'the' before all unique nouns.

Hi Kimberly, Thank you very much for your reply. But there is another question is there. Somebody told me, it would be only correct if I write this sentence as: "I, Raju Saha, is working in your esteemed organisation, in Accounts Department". Can you please suggest me whether this would again correct or wrong. I know you will say again that I should use "THE" before the department name, but I have keep the sentence intact to know the answer. Please help.

It would be incorrect to say: "I, Raju Saha, is. . .". KimberlyJul 12 '11 at 18:37
