Volume 10 Issue 3

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the October 2021 issue of IJELLS.

From the references to Ramayana in the ‘Adventurous Return before Lockdown’ to the representation of Ravan in Annadurai’s The Swooning of the God of Justice, the modern scholarship engages with the cultural encyclopaedia of Ramayana in an attempt to decode it. The papers on ‘Dark Humour’ and ‘Gamification’ are interesting to read along with the other papers.

International Journal of English: Literature, Language and Skills – IJELLS extends its service into publishing books. We have started the enterprise IJELLS Publishing. This is a platform where we help the authors self publish their work. Check out our webpage at to understand more.

Happy Reading and Happy Sharing!
