Professor Varun Sahni (Vice Chancellor)MESSAGE FROM VICE-CHANCELLOR

I am pleased to learn that KCS College of Education(Women), Jammu is bringing out the third issue of the College magazine "Kalamkriti".

The University of Jammu is one of the India's premier research and teaching institutions and has been rated by NAAC as an "A" Grade University. I am happy that the KCS College of Education(Women) is also a NAAC accredited "A" Grade College. An "A" Grade University must necessarily consist of "A" or "B" Grade Colleges. It is therefore imperative that the affiliated Colleges of the University of Jammu strengthen their quality enhancement procedures.

I am sure that the College Magazine will provide a platform to the students to sharpen their writing talent and will strengthen the academic activities of the College.

I send my warm greetings and good wishes on the occasion.

Each article is entertaining, interesting and absorbing. I applaud the contributors for their stimulated thoughts and varied hues in articles contributed by them.

Commendable job has also been done by the Editorial Board in planning for and producing the magazine. My congratulations to the team who took the responsibility for the arduous task most effectively.

On this occasion, I seize the opportunity to bid a warm adieu to the outgoing batches of students on successful completion of their course of study. I am confident wherever our students will be placed shall work with passion, perfection and dedication.

It is a matter of great pride and satisfaction for KCS COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (WOMEN) to bring out the third issue of the annual College Magazine 'KALAMKRITI'.

The College has made tremendous progress in all areas- academic, non-academics, capacity building relevant to staff and students. The College has achieved another milestone in getting Grade "A" by National Assessment and Accreditation council (NAAC) in the year 2009.

I am confident that this issue of College Magazine will send a positive signal to the staff, students and the persons who are interested in the educational and literary activities. A magazine is like a mirror which reflects the clear picture of all sorts of activities undertaken by the institution and develops writing skills among students in particular and teaching faculty in general.

I congratulate the Editorial Board of this magazine who have played wonderful role in accomplishing the task in record time.

I express my deep sense of gratitude to Mr. U .S. Chaudhri and Mrs. P.Chaudhri under whose guidance this literary work has been undertaken and completed within the stipulated time.

I am hopeful that this small piece of literary work shall not only develop the taste for reading among students but also develop a sense belonging to the institution as well
