Dear friends,

This is the third and final issue of ELJ in 2013, and we have enjoyed ourselves very much indeed. We thank all of you for your keen interest and warm response every time.

In this issue (East, West: Juxtapositions & Intersections), we have for you works by writers such as Rajorshi Chakraborti, Kalpish Ratna, Madhulika Liddle, Anjana Basu, Sampurna Chattarji, Dipika Mukherjee, and various others.

Bapsi Sidhwa, the well-known writer from Pakistan, was kind enough to do an interview with us. She has some interesting insights to offer. We also showcase works by the award-winning artist, Kavita Jaiswal, in our Studio section.

When we chose this theme, we expected to receive some interesting submissions – and we did! We hope you'll enjoy our selections.

Our book review section seems to be gaining popularity day by day. However, we'd like to request all publishers/authors to send their books well before the deadline. As you can understand, we need to allow enough time to our reviewers to deliver.

Happy reading!
