THe Women Characters in the novels of THomas Hardy
Dilip Barad

This book studies Thomas Hardy’s portrayal of women in the Victorian period in England, still struggling for their essential human rights. Victorian women were willing to struggle for emancipation, even if it meant dying for it. They had to live under many societal constraints, which kept them subservient and shackled to their relationships. When women struggled for independence and vitality, they were crushed by an unbending Victorian society whose mores did not encourage personal growth and empowerment of women. The women characters—both major and minor—from all of Hardy’s fourteen novels have been presented and laid before the readers to offer a clear view of the female struggle and subjugation. Another important aspect of Hardy’s women characters presented in this book is about the human predicament. The women in Thomas Hardy’s novels appear to have no dominance over their demeanour or their destiny. Hardy’s women struggle, seldom winning, often losing, but they are not docile puppets to be manoeuvred. Their resistance emerges in their character. This book attempts to resurrect Hardy’s heroines and restore to them the honour and charisma which Hardy sees as their birthright, but which the male-dominated world they inhabit seeks to deny them—both within and beyond the novel.

Experimenting ICT in Teaching
Dilip Barad

A gale of change is blowing in the pedagogy of English Language Teaching (ELT) ICT has initiated new possibilities into the classroom. The role of the teacher, the nature and context of learning, as well as the function and relative importance of course content have all been challenged and redefined. This research paper aims at sharing practical experiments with ICT in teaching English language and literature. It deals with the pragmatic aspects of using ICT with the student community of Business Management and Humanities. The extensive use of web 2.0 components, internet, blogs, e-groups, SMSs, emails, socializing portals, e-dictionaries, e-encyclopedia, power point presentations, webcasting, and audio-video, as teaching tools have been made in the classroom. The student community was motivated to make use of cyber cafes and GPRS mobiles to interact with the teacher. The paper is divided in two parts. The First part of the paper deals with the experiments carried out to develop Business English skills. The second part is dedicated to teaching literature while the third part deals with general inferences of these experiments, its limitations and opportunities.
