Volume 3 Issue 2 – July 2014

Dear Readers and Contributors,

We are happy the way this issue has shaped up. The English Literature has a host of articles researching various facets, provides the English Literature students, scholars and learners browse with wide eyed wonder. Just reading the host of titles is thrilling; imagine the storehouse of information and author’s perspective would add to it. In English Language Teaching, we have writings which explore newer angles in chartered areas on one hand and on the other we have assertive ideas on ‘Learner Autonomy’ which is the order of the day. The section English & Communication Skills has various writings on various methods to enhance English and simultaneously hone the skills required. The English creative section has five poems, continuing the effect of the special poetry issue released in May 2014 and also hinting at the exclusive short story issue that is coming up soon.

The authors are also very strongly encouraged to write down their thoughts, along with referenced research papers, pertinent to these three prominent areas, necessarily original.

Happy Reading!

Dr. Mrudula Lakkaraju
Founding Editor
