Vol. 3, Issue 1 IJELLS – April 2014

Dear Readers and Contributors,

Welcome to the Volume 3 Issue 1 of IJELLS. We now enter the third year of our journey; it on one hand gives us a sense of contentment yet on the other hand alerts us into the daunting task of sustaining and developing this academic enterprise. We hope we live up to the standards we aim to stabilise and achieve.

We now plan to tighten the editorial processes of selecting a submission for publishing. The focus would be on originality, and that we have decided not to compromise upon. The articles from now on will undergo a stringent set of processes to be able to feature in the upcoming issues. The contributors are motivated to write responding to their original thought processes and seek base in established theory.

We are planning to come up with two issues. One on poetry and the other on translated stories. We shall communicate with you shortly on the information. Till then, exercise your grey cells and enjoy reading this issue.

Happy Reading!

Dr. Mrudula Lakkaraju
Founding Editor
