It gives me immense pleasure to lead the Department of English of Bharathamatha College. The Department of English is well acclaimed for earnestly imparting Academics as well as activity based knowledge to the students. The primary focus of the Department is to empower our students with overall development. The department strives to impart knowledge and training to the students of the highest standard. The Department aims at an unintermittent progress of the students by enhancing their language and kindling an interminable taste for literature by inculcating love for literature. Various academic sessions, seminars, guest lectures, workshops and symposiums are regularly conducted to enrich the Academic and Research writing for the students. For the overall development of the students, they are trained to plan, organize and meticulously conduct events, thereby promoting their leadership qualities. With our distinct student centred teaching – learning methodology, our students will be able to face challenges of life with our holistic approach in teaching and learning. Our Department has become a pioneer in the District to conduct Inter-School Spell Bee competitions on a grand scale. Students of English Department also bagged prizes in academics as well as in Co-curricular activities at various Inter-college competitions. Athira, a student of first batch secured University rank which is the greatest achievement of the Department. Thus, we strive hard to promote academic excellence and are committed to creating an ambience for fostering innovation and creativity. All these efforts are followed ambitiously to develop the overall personality of the students. Besides, the true guidance and leadership of our Principal with wide experience and Faculty with commitment enhances the smooth functioning of the department. This magazine too is a united effort of all of us and I congratulate all who worked behind this.
