2015 has been a year of loss for the Department of English. Professor Rohinton Kapadia was not merely an integral part of the department, but also a guardian and guru, who professors and students alike could look to for advice and guidance in realizing the projects of The English Academy. He constantly nurtured and enriched the department and grief is too inept an emotion to express our sorrow. But it is through our little endeavors liking hosting 'Literaria' and publishing 'Ode to Expressions' that we intend to explore the vistas of literary possibilities and thus, keep Sir's vision alive.
