Volume 7 Issue 1

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the seventh year of publishing! What happened in the last six years and how did we reach the seventh is surprising. The Journey had been so exciting that the time line never registered with us.

Like always we got to work on some well researched article, some newline thoughts and new texts introduced to the field of research.

Some worthy recommendations amongst other equally worthy contributions are ‘The Arrested Life’, ‘Diasporic Literature: Indenture Deaths in Fiji’, ‘LOTS & HOTS- The Gym in English Language Classrooms’ and ‘Demographic Analysis of Students and Inclination to Reading Skills’.

Congratulations to teachers, students and parents who are encouraging their wards and students to write from a very young age.

A ‘Literature and Film’ special issue is planned to be released in August 2018.

Happy Reading and Sharing!

Dr. Mrudula Lakkaraju
Founding & Chief Editor
