As he would like to think, a limit between the 'object' and'ego' is degraded, so he stated that "Against to all proof of his feelings, a person, who is in love utters that 'you' and 'I' are one and begins carrying on as if it was a reality" (Freud, 13). 'Self' of the individual, who falls in love is totally degraded into 'oneself' of the other, so Love assumes an important role in bliss or despondency in human life, in which, the fruitful love makes life upbeat and on the contrary, its disappointment changes life into a hopeless wreck, so unfortunately, Unrequited Love is a one imbalance in which you may love someone with all your heart, but you don’t receive these feelings in return. In other words, it is love that isn’t reciprocated. For example, you may love someone deeply, but this person simply doesn’t love you back.</p> <p>This paper will discuss the characters’ suffering as a result of the one-sided love and explain how they behaved during the events of the love stories, as well as delineate the tragic ending of their unrequited love, furthermore, it will give some examples from some of Pamuk’s novels.</p> Ahmed Hassan Ali Murshed Copyright (c) 2020 Ahmed Hassan Ali Murshed http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 1 13 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10794 The Idea of Mysticism in the Writings of Andrew Harvey and Pico Iyer https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10795 <p>This paper deals with idea of mysticism represented in form of Buddhist Philosophy. I will be discussing the writings of Andrew Harvey and Pico Iyer. Both of them are commendable travel writers, they have extensively travelled and wrote about Buddhism. I will be comparing the writings of both and the way they looked at Buddhism and its philosophy for the welfare of people. A Journey in Ladakh by Andrew Harvey and Sun After Dark by Pico Iyer, both of them talk of about Buddhist dominant regions and its effect on people. The difference between the two is that, the writings of Andrew Harvey is more spiritual whereas Pico Iyer is more technical and political. Both of them express their special bond with India and its people. They talk about the peculiarities of people, the culture and cuisine.</p> Shruti Mishra Copyright (c) 20 Shruti Mishra http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-28 2020-10-28 8 10 14 26 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10795 Adolescent Psyche and Expressionism in ‘The Catcher in The Rye’ and ‘The Bell Jar’ https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10796 <p>J.D. Salinger’s <em>The Catcher in the Rye</em> (1951) and Sylvia Plath’s <em>The Bell Jar</em> (1963), both serve as masterpiece accounts of teen angst and intricate detailed workings of the mind post world war when society was growing on one side with new foliage of technological innovation aimed at improving the lifestyle of human beings, on the other was on a slowyet painful process of moral, individual and spiritual decay as men and women had given way to the evils of the surplus and easy way of living. Not only were relationships coming under the radar of suspicion with humans doubting and betraying each other, a major issue of serious concern was on the rise as well that being the changing dynamics of adolescent brain and mind. Prone to modernization, the functioning of the mind of teenagers was undergoing a tremendous change where overt sensitivity was on rise. This paper focuses upon the main themes of (I) ideals cherished by both the protagonists, their view on them as individuals of the society, (II) on sexuality and (III) the serious issue of suicide which had been sought out as the best means of escape as their surroundings fail to bend according to their visions. This paper makes special efforts at analysing the same by bringing into it the status of relationship of the protagonist with his or her family member, peers, teachers and counsellors and how exactly it helps in expressing who they are and what they want.</p> Ananya Roy Copyright (c) 2020 Ananya Roy http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-28 2020-10-28 8 10 27 47 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10796 Dimensions in Teaching Skills and Learning Skills https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10799 <p>Teaching skills and learning skills existed even in the ancient times, though the terms were coined at a later stage. Dire necessity forced the ancient man to learn skills like hunting animals for food. As mankind was heading towards new civilisation, teaching skills found a place in society. Saints demonstrated skills in education as well as in warfare to princes. These teaching skills and learning skills have taken new dimensions to cater the needs of changing trends in all fields. Teachers exhibit skills like classroom management, use of black board and skill of explaining. Drastic changes have taken place in learning skills as well. Some people like craftsmen learn skills without formal education. But modern education demands organised classroom study. So, students have to acquire learning skills like concentration, punctuality and discipline. However the modern trends and necessities in education require constant developments in teaching skills and learning skills. The learning process has no end. It starts from childhood and lasts till death. This paper deals with various aspects of teaching skills and learning skills which are inevitable in education.</p> Divya Deevi Kavi Bala Brahma Chary Copyright (c) 2020 Divya Deevi, Kavi Bala Brahma Chary http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 48 56 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10799 S K Pottekkatt’s In the Land of the Kappiris: A Journey into the Heart of Africa https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10800 <p>Exploration and mapping of Africa began around 1850 and continued intothe nineteenth century.S. K Pottekkatt, the Indian travel writer from Kerala State in India, set out to Africa. This study focusses on S. K Pottekkat as a travel writer who made Malayalis aware of the geography, life and culture of Africa. The Kappiri had no place in the land of his birth. Beira was a source of great relief for Indians travelling from other countries because Portuguese Africa was fairly free from racial discrimination. The Gujarati businessman was prominent. They had mastered the language of the natives and had in depth knowledge of their customs as well as their needs and so prospered well. Who had the greater right in Africa: the British or the Indians?</p> Dr Cynthia Catherine Michael Copyright (c) 2020 Dr Cynthia Catherine Michael http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 57 64 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10800 Lawrence’s Ideology of Education https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10801 <p>H. Lawrence was not only a novelist, poet, short story writer and essayist but also a philosopher, sociologist and educationist. His contribution in the field of education is not less than a milestone. In this article my approach is to analyze his ideology of education which was child centric. Through his novels, poems and essays Lawrence always propagated his vision of education.</p> Arshad Imam Copyright (c) 2020 Arshad Imam http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 65 73 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10801 Mahesh Dattani’s “Do the NEEDFUL”: An Unconventional Romantic Comedy https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10802 <p>Mahesh Dattani is a contemporary Indian English Dramatist who gave voice to the 60 million English speakers of India through his drama.

Lee is a Korean-American author whose work engages with themes of the diasporic Korean identity. <em>Pachinko </em>was published in 2017 to critical acclaim and it was in the running for the National Book Award for Fiction.</p> <p><em>Pachinko </em>is a historical novel and its panoramic gaze encompasses twentieth century Korea giving us a terrifyingly real account of Korean society from the Japanese colonization of Korea to the Second World War. The Financial Times wrote in their review of the book: “We never feel history being spoon-fed to us; it is wholly absorbed into character and story, which is no mean feat for a novel covering almost a century of history.”</p> <p>It is the first novel about Korean history and culture written for English language readers.</p> Richa Singh Copyright (c) 2020 Richa Singh http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 82 90 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10804 Returning to The Plague and The Bhagwad Gita : New Meaning and “Existentialist Absurdity” amid COVID-19 Pandemic https://ijellh.com/OJS/index.php/OJS/article/view/10807 <p>??????????????????? ?? ????? ??????<br>?? ?????????????????? ?? ???????????????????2.47??</p> <p>Meaning:</p> <p>Your right is to perform your work but never be oriented to the results. Never be motivated by the results of your actions, nor should you be attached to not performing your prescribed duties.</p> <p>The above mentioned philosophy however, can be best understood in the present scenario of the pandemic of COVID 19. The pandemic which has kept everybody unsettled, restless from within, Shrimad <em>Bhagwad Gita</em> serves a torchbearer to the humanity. It holds our faith in karma, the true meaning of life.</p> <p>As WHO reported, 2020 gripped the whole world into the saga of darkness which is started with a disease from animal. Not only that in fact it has engulfed the whole world into it. The entire world it seems has locked and blocked not only its movements but life. The numbers of death and patients increasing every day and with this increase in number is increasing the social stigma towards people. Health workers, women, children, sex workers, all are victim of it. This saga of disease has restricted not only our breathing but livelihood, happiness. We all succumb now to our own shell. Aristotle said once, “man is a social animal” and look at the world around today, a small little animal has brought that man to just a tiny individual who is always at the hands and prey to the nature. Be it Ebola Virus (EVD) of 1976 that was considered one of the deadliest viruses until then of its own kind, severely fatal to human illness or the Spanish Flu or the Bubonic Plague, Black Death epidemic. All these have always been fatal and deadliest in their own specific ways. Still, we human always feel surprised whenever we face such sudden outbreak of any disaster, what so ever. The catastrophic, xenophobic behaviour, subjects to be analysed from anthropological point of view try to justify one of the foremost evolution myths by Herbert Specncer, “Survival of the Fittest”. However, in literature, it is said that everything has a purpose in a narrative or a situation, it has a meaning to interpret. Things and situations are always interpretational. So is the case in this pandemic. This COVID-19 is much more than just a “disease”. It’s a social-cultural construct that shapes, reshapes or de-shapes humanities responses and behaviour.</p> <p>The objective of this paper is to look these constructs from a different lens and analyse the underlying existential philosophy, an existential absurdity drawing adjacent connections between the age old two classics piece of literature, <em>The Bhagwad Gita</em> (a long conversation between Arjuna and Lord Krishna before the battle of <em>Mahabharata</em> in the battle field <em>Kurukshetra</em> and <em>The Plague</em> by Albert Camus.</p> Dr. Smita Copyright (c) 2020 Dr. Smita http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-10-29 2020-10-29 8 10 91 102 10.24113/ijellh.v8i10.10807
