Communication skills – two misunderstood words

Communication skills and personality development are the two most misunderstood and misrepresented terms, said Osmania University English Professor T. Vijay Kumar.

A two-day seminar on ‘Emerging trends in Indian writing in English in 21st century’ was organised at the SDM Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala here on Tuesday by the Department of English of the college in association with Krishna University and sponsored by the UGC.

Mr. Vijay Kumar pointed out that if one utilises the resources available in school or college the need for attending coaching at any commercial establishment for communication skills would not arise.

“Fluency in your mother tongue will help improve your communication skills,” said the professor.

On trends in English writing, he said that writing skills had changed and evolved over the years. English writing began in India in the 1860s with Bankim Chandra Chatterjee’s ‘Rajmohan’s wife’ and Krupabai Satthianadhan’s ‘A story of Hindu life’, and it has changed over the years.

Exposure to new trends

The Head of the Department, M. Nalini, in her address said that the seminar was being organised to expose the faculty to the contemporary trends in Indian English writing. The seminar was inaugurated by the Vice-Chancellor of Krishna University V. Venkaiah. The president of Siddhartha Academy N. Venkateswarulu, Convenor of the college Lalitha Prasad and Principal of the college T. Vijaylakshmi also spoke.
