Vol. 2, Issue 3 IJELLS – October 2013

Dear Readers and Contributors,

Welcome to the Volume 2 Issue 3 of IJELLS. We welcome you on board this great reading experience of assortment of candies. We have to confess, each article has mesmerised us as children are, definitely, by chocolates.

Though some articles have tried to break ground in the truly conventional areas, it is equally interesting to watch more contemporary work considered for research.

As we have promised we have started a new column called “Interesting Read” from this issue onwards to encourage and inspire creative writing in the contributors. All of us refrain from creative writing because usually we do not have a clue about where would it be published. Now that we have an exclusive space earmarked for it, go….writers, colour the paper black and blue with your opinions, thoughts and everything worth reading!

Thinking minds need to be inspired. We hope these articles inspire all those who read them.
