Dear Readers and Contributors,
Welcome to the April 2015 issue of IJELLS. With this issue we have successfully forayed into the fourth year of publishing. We would like to thank all of you for trusting this enterprise and giving us an opportunity to sustain in this vast and upcoming field of online publishing. Please feel free to suggest changes and improvement by mailing them to email@example.com
We in this issue have again very interesting inclusions. The creative section has two poems, two short stories and a creative recording of an experience of a book fair. This is the one such inspiration for us to include creative writing in the journal, fresh perspectives of everyday things. This is joyful reading!
The English Literature Section and English Language Teaching Section have a range from holding onto the tried fields to flexing fingers to reach new realms symbolizing the true spirit of research. English & Communication Skills is still the underutilized area where the demands of the market lie and scope for exploring is immense. We look forward to authors writing more in this area.
