About Me

Assistant Professor

My area of research interest is socio-cultural History and Folk Tradition.
Over 15 years of teaching experience, I strongly feel that teaching-learning is a lifelong process and must be enhanced through passion for learning, ethical work practices and authentic professional orientation. Adapting to the paradigm shift in the teaching-learning shift is the way ahead. As the knowledge initiative of 21st Century aspires to enhance the creative potential of students and other stakeholders, my teaching-learning journey is aimed at pushing the disciplinary boundaries and to promote innovative and socially relevant learning and teaching by innovative models in learning.
