S. Achebe and Sreenath Muraleedharan K., “Decentralizing Travel: An Analysis of Pico Iyer’s Video Night in Kathmandu”, International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering, vol. 8, pp. 193-196, 2019.[Abstract]


Travel writings traditionally recorded the experience of a person undergoing travel. It has since expanded its domain by maturing into a coherent narrative, a reliable source of information. Questions have always been posed regarding the relationship between the experience and writing of travel and whether travel writing is mere fiction which does not contain truth or sometimes partial truth. The continuing canon of travel writing has tried to answer these questions. The present paper titled Decentralizing Travel: An Analysis of Pico Iyer’s Video Night in Kathmandu aims to explore travel writing as a narrative while attempting to analyse Iyer’ s travel within larger issues related to globalization, neocolonialism. It particularly focuses on Iyer’s journey through Nepal. The western impact destroyed Nepal’s traditional roots and the people were forced into a state of in betweenness. The seeds of globalization paved way for the instability of the nation. The economy of Nepal was terribly hit as tourism became one and major source of income. Coupled with burgeoning drug abuse Nepal’s society went in a downward spiral. Pico Iyer, the celebrated travel writer toured Nepal in the 1980s. The aim of his quest was to find tradition in coexistence with modernity, but he finds a nation decaying in front of him. In addition, it looks at the narrative as a report of the nation in the era with help of necessary statistics.

Language was known to be formed as a part of the human endeavor in recognizing, interpreting and expressing various phenomena in the nature of which his role is that of a mere piece of puzzle which forms the whole picture. In understanding the revolution that brought in the language that we use today one must have a firm grasp over the ever changing nature of language. Language is observed to be A volatile phenomena which never stays static and is always prone to change. Constant additions and subtractions are being done in the realm of languages as there is novelty in each human being which demands for the novelty in expression through language. Language changes its form and content from time to time, as Fredrick. T. Wood’s well put observation in his Outline History of English Language of the nonsensical nature of Chaucerian stanzas from an excerpt taken from an earlier edition which would render the reader mute with its stark contrast on the dissimilarity of the English that we know and speak today. The same applies for every language. The modern French differs from the old French and so does the German that was in use a few centuries ago and the one that is currently in use. In the understanding of anything, one must travel back in time towards the origin. The origin of the formation of language could thus be tracked back to the observation and imitation of natural elements by our ancient forefathers. Various theories are at play which strives to explain this nature of imitation which led to a formation of continual sounds which eventually culminated into the formation of meaningful sounds that is language.

K. G. Hareesh and Sreenath Muraleedharan K., “Evolved Femininity: An analysis on K R Meera’s Novel Aarachar”, International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering, vol. 8, pp. 197-199, 2019.[Abstract]


The demarcation between men and women on the basis of gender has moved a long way from the stereotyped views of the society. The theoretical dimensions gave wide possibilities to analyse the very concept of gender and sex. Gender has become a fluid concept with end number of features in it that can be chosen by an individual. K. R Meera’s novel Aarachar questions the basic distinction of men and women drawn by the codes and conventions of the society. By creating, a quantified table for analysing the features of society perceived male and female, it is easy to illustrate how much K.R.Meera has moved to break the rigid system. The paper has distinguished the novel into two for a clear analysis, as gendered self and metamorphosed self, on the grounds of gender theory.

R. Raj and Sreenath Muraleedharan K., “An Experimental Analysis on Reading historical narrative as literary Artefact: a Metahistorical Analysis of Manu s. Pillai‟s Rebel Sultans”, International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering, vol. 8, pp. 453-457, 2019.[Abstract]


‘Isotoria’, the Greek term for history defines history as an enquiry or an exploration of archives and historical evidence. But it is through the narrative part that the historical imagination of the historian is transferred. Hence the process of writing of history involves a scientific and creative procedure. The creative part of historiography is centred on the ‘historical narrative’ which makes the core of this study. The primary text selected for the study is Rebel Sultans authored by Manu S. Pillai. The study tries to trace the narrative strategies that enabled the author to convert historical evidence into a proper historical narrative. The theoretical framework adopted for the analysis comes from Metahistory: Historical Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Europe, the seminal work of the American historiographer Hayden White, published in 1973. The study analyses the process of construction of the narrative of Rebel Sultans based on the five levels of conceptualisation proposed by Hayden White such as chronicles, story, mode of emplotement, mode of argument and mode of ideology
