Career Profile

I have entered Academia with the aim of relentless motive to steer ahead thereby expanding horizons of learning by incorporating not just the Canonical but the non-canonical literature, for, any progress of mind and matter is possible only through the amalgamation of Tradition as well as modernity; this is my firm belief and I adhere to it. As a teacher, I have always tried to impart knowledge to my students through motivation, affection and i try not to leave any stone unturned in satisfying their curiosity and their urge to move ahead in life. of course, I do have a few articles to my credit which I wrote only when i felt motivated to do so.

Other than publishing a few papers and a book and taking up new and challenging texts/courses I have also taken some Tutorial Classes of M.A. Previous and Final students of Delhi University students, I have also taken Counselling sessions of IGNOU M.A. students. In addition I have also taught students of SOL, Open Learning, D.U. at the undergraduation level.

Areas of Specialization / Interest

I have always enjoyed exploring Contemporary Literature, especially Indian Literature as well as some of 17th & 18th century Dramas ,also travel books of this period. Modern European Drama has been my area of specialization, while in the recent years i have developed interest in some of Indian and Classical Literature as well. 

Subjects Taught

Other than the areas of specialization specified, I have enthusiastically and innovatively taught subjects like Business Communication, Technical Writing, Creative Writing to students of various streams and levels and also courses prescribed for B.A(prog) students where I try to be quite considerate towards students with weaker language skills.
