This Blog was an innovative attempt to provide  Conference updates right from the day, the  Conference was  conceived by the college where I teach. It turned out to be immensely useful for  teachers, scholars and students interested in getting information about the Conference on a day-to-day basis. According to some,  this was  the first venture in Kerala to provide  Conference details on a day-to-day basis using a Blog.

 Phoenix was the  Blog of the Department of English, Government College of Teacher Education, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala State India where I teach. The free space  provided  by Edublogs was exhausted  after nearly thirty posts. This necessitated the  launch of Phoenix II in WordPress. The Blog is fairly new but the very first post  ‘A Memorable Trip’ is becoming  quite popular.

In December 2013, I was transferred to Govt. Brennen College of Teacher Education, Thalassery.  The trainees of the college are quite active on  Whatsapp. Recently (March 2015)  I  joined the group of the present batch which they had named ‘Brennen Breeze’.  Though  Whatspp has several features, I found the need to launch  a Blog to document the activities  of  the English Optional trainees of the college. Hence this Blog…

By December 2015,  I had  chaired  several conferences  and seminars  and had  the opportunity to deliver the Key note address  occasionally.  I often found that those who visit  my Blogs   were not able to quickly  access my  Plenary  Abstracts.   Hence this blog was launched.

Ever since I was posted to the Post Graduate department,  I had  to  spend  quite a lot of time  supervising   students  preparing  their   dissertations.
