Volume 12 Issue 2

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the July 2023 issue of IJELLS. The journey begins with one step and one step in front of the other after that. We are learning and growing one issue at a time.

The paper on Śrimad Bhāgavata Mahāpurāṇa establishes the trend in literature to revisit the ancient Indian texts in an attempt to re-read them. The question of the relevance of ‘Sanskrit’ in the modern day curriculum receives its answer right there. Rereading takes us into understanding the representation of women in ancient Indian texts in another paper. The coming together of nanotechnology and literature helps us understand that knowledge should be seamless in its exploration. And many more academic papers to explore and learn.

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 authors self-publish their work. Check out our webpage to understand more at

Happy Reading and Happy Sharing!
