wet
 adj.— «As water resources minister, Mr Munshi had been burdened with a lightweight ministry, one which is not quite as “wet” as the name may suggest (in Delhi parlance, a “wet” ministry is one where the minister has enormous financial resources at his command).» —“Illusions of power” by Rajdeep Sardesai Mid Day (Mumbai, India) Mar. 17, 2005.
