Volume 9 Issue 3

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the October 2020 issue of IJELLS. Each issue is special to me as I embark on a new journey of learning with compiling the articles. This is the 9th year of publishing, 45th issue and I have undertaken this journey of reading, reviewing, editing, rewriting, compiling and learning that many times.

We have an interesting collection of Haiku, Short Story and research articles. Hope it is an enjoyable and learning experience reading this issue. I am introducing a young photographer, Bhargav Ram, whose work is on the cover page.

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 website at to understand more.

Happy Reading and Happy Sharing!
