India: A Journey through Stories will undoubtedly provide undergraduate students across Indian universities a pleasant experience of learning English. India is a vast country with rich and diverse linguistic, regional and cultural traditions and yet, we all share a common heritage and a natural affinity. Learning English enhances that underlying sense of unity.

Description

India: A Journey through Stories is a collection of ten short stories, focusing on different aspects of Indian life. Some of these stories were originally written in English and some were translated from regional Indian languages into English. This textbook is our first attempt to teach English to undergraduate students through Indian stories. This method has a two-fold advantage-students will not only learn and improve English but will also be able to understand India better. We hope the fraternity of Indian teachers of English will welcome this experiment and encourage us to come out with more English textbooks along similar lines in the future.
