Note : 5 questions should be attempted taking atleast one from each Unit Notes : 1. The above unit containing song poems from Pop Culture starting from the 1960s is a new and experimental component in Undergraduate study that reflects and gives expression to the mood of anti-establishment and rebellion of the youth culture while also giving vent to dreams and aspirations. It is hoped that students will respond positively and intellectually to the amalgam of embedded philosophy and vision encapsulated in these prescribed song poems, which have had, and continue to have, far reaching effects in the formation and development of present day pop culture the world over. 2. Three novels that come under Popular Literature are added to initiate college students to contemporary writing techniques and concerns other than traditional and canonical writings. This is also done to introduce college students to new areas of study and research. The three novels are by writers from India to provide a balance to the west centric component of Unit I. 3. Teachers will be expected to source their reference materials on pop culture theory and its

implications etc from reliable websites and prepare their lectures accordingly.
