Literature is a picture of our own life, which expresses emotions, feelings ideas etc. It promotes a better understanding of life and teaches the values and ethics of life. That is why we call literature the mirror of the society and the zeal of our life. As literature is the heart beat and the live wire of the department, it provides stunning success to all those who link them in the stream of literature learning.
