Aesthetique Journal for International Literary Enterprises (AJILE)
I am a Professor of English (7 years teaching experience at the College Level) and a University Master’s degree rank holder. I have penned 6 books which are available at major online stores. I have completed 30 international research publications, 46 academic papers, and numerous translations.
My students say I am friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and easy to grasp.Being a poet and an artist, I am able to pass on my passion for literature and language to my students. I am a passionate and God-fearing individual and I have inherited my teaching skills from my parents, both of whom are retired professors. I believe marks are important, but I make sure that my students benefit from my lessons in the long-term as well.
For me, teaching is a vocation and a divine gift. It spurs me on personally to achieve more. I believe that the success of students in their careers and in their personal lives is the biggest reward for a teacher. I would like to thank my teachers, but for whom I wouldn't have become what I am now. Being a teacher is a pleasure and privilege, a rare opportunity devoutly to be wished and cherished.
I imbibed my penchant for poetry and flair for writing from my parents. I completed my post-graduation in English Language and Literature from Mahatma Gandhi University Kottayam in 2009 securing second rank and a career as a litterateur. Soon I joined the Department of English, St George’s College as a permanent faculty where I imparted lessons in English language and literature until November 2017.
I deliver lectures on topics ranging from literary theory and Sanskrit poetics to critical appreciation and creativity. Besides translations into English from Chinese and Sanskrit, I write poetry both in English and Malayalam. My active involvement in Chinese poetry translations won me the sobriquet "Comrade to Poetry China" in 2016.
I am on the editorial board of Spring Magazine, an online journal customised for literature students [ISSN Online: 2455-4715] and have served as the chief editor of an anthology of research articles (ISBN: 978-93-85105-32-6). I have just completed a UGC funded research project on “Sachin Tendulkar as an Aesthetic Experience".
Currently, I am engaged in designing a SWAYAM (UGC-CEC) funded MOOC course on Romantic Literature in English worth Rs 15 lakhs. I contribute to the activities at www.mutemelodist.com, a website catering to the creative aspirations of literature students. Further, as a tribute to literature, I offer free online training and mentoring to UGC NET English aspirants all over the country. The current batch consists of 97 post-graduates/ guest lecturers/ research scholars. Additionally, I offer guidance to 7 research scholars in the country and abroad (Iran).
