This booklet lovingly recounts the story of a n E n g l i s h a s s o c i a t i o n ’s deep contemplative thoughts and ideas. it also tries to unfold student’s profound understanding of issues of contemporary reality with regard to the language. In order to make this compiled collection’s efforts available to all those, who are engaged in writing skills with flair in English language. It is my hope that this piece of literature will both create a new awareness about language and stimulate further to discuss, develop and reflect on the need of the language in our community. I congratulate the secretary and the team who toiled with her to manage to launch this meaningful booklet Revd. Peter Ravikumar
we are proud that we were able to conduct quite a number of programs in a span of three to four months. seminars and talks were conducted by leaders in English language and I am sure it helped all of us to expand our horizons. I hope this book would enrich our thoughts and minds. We are proud to release this booklet. we have also included some articles published by the World Council of Churches on International Women’s Day 2012. And give you as much pleasure in reading.SECRETARY SPEAKS Dear Friends.
