Biosketch

With MA in both English and Linguistics and M Phil (Linguistics, University of Delhi) followed by Ph D in Child Language Acquisition (Department of Linguistics, University of Delhi),  she is teaching English to undergraduate engineering students at Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT), Delhi University, for the past 15 years. Her overall contribution to teaching at undergraduate level including other colleges of Delhi University is around 20 years. With a number of papers in English Language teaching, she also has papers in English Literature and creative writing. Her debut book ‘Five Short Stories: Translations from Munshi Premchand’ is a fledgling step in the world of translation and publishing. Another book on translation from Maithili is under preparation.  

Aiming at a general improvement in oral and written skills, she finds translation from one language to another as the real test for a speaker of a number of languages. With increased global demand for good English communication skills, honing spoken skills in engineering graduates is her  forte and mission. Keeping the interests of the students in mind, she has reviewed and revised the existing syllabus as per the needs today. A post graduation degree in English Language and Literature has been prepared and is presently submitted for approval. Her future plans are running Short and Long Term Programmes in Spoken English and Personality Development to benefit those interested in English Language Training as a component of skill development.

Functioning as  the Faculty-in- Charge of the Debating Society of NSIT she finds it an extension of her aim of developing good communication skills in her students, apart from it being an exercise in coordination, competition and management capabilities for the participants and hosts. ‘Colloquium’ the Annual Literary and Debating Festival of NSIT has been successfully held under her aegis for the past four years and is acclaimed as one of the best in the country.
