Manipur University Research Club was conceived on 13th November 1991 out of a collective wisdom and effort of scholars who believed in the critical discourse of human mind through academic research. This Club has experienced a chequered journey of one and half decades. In its heydays, talk programmes, lecture series, conferences and seminars were organized and had published in the form of working papers, booklets, etc. under the title – Talk Line, Worm Series and Interdis. After a long gap it was rechristened as Research Update and made it into a volume and published from a multidisciplinary approach by the Club. This present volume, Research Line, is the footstep of the same. Whatever it may be the title of the volume, the content is that matters most for a research publication. In this regard, the effort of this publication is to give a space for the young scholars to excel in their thinking process, which will definitely be helpful for further engagement in the theoretical and empirical research works. Essentially, this book is a collection of research paper from the wide range of discipline available in the University. All the contributors are associated with MU either as faculties or scholars. In fact, this book is an exemplary of the trends of contemporary research in Manipur University.
