“English words are like prisms. Empty, nothing inside, and still they make rainbows.” – Denis Johnson
My passion to explore English started during my school days in India. Like any typical Indian school kid, I was compelled to embrace English for the sake of a bright professional future. Watching BBC and reading ‘ The Hindu’ were prerequisites for learning English. Reading a typical 30-40 paged ‘The Hindu’ news paper was a Herculean task in the beginning. But it was just a beginning. Gradually ‘The Hindu’ became a part and parcel of my daily life.
I never skipped the popular ‘Know Your English’ (“KYE”) column published in ‘The Hindu’. In 2007 I started compiling the column in my personal blog www.englishwithsunil.wordpress.com/
The response and support was overwhelming and after five years, I began to think about a wider and independent platform. The decision to launch such a platform was postponed several times, thanks to my hectic professional schedule!! I have overcome the hiccups…www.exploreabc.com is now a reality, thanks to the support of a wonderful team of logophiles.
The website will publish original articles on a wide variety of topics related to English language. We hope that our readers will enjoy and benefit…..
We invite you to join our Facebook club www.facebook.com/exploreabc .Your support and encouragement will keep us motivated.
Thank you and happy reading..!!
