The present issue of Ambrosia being launched by the English department of Apeejay College of Fine Arts. Jalandhar is yet another endeavour by the Department to promote literature with a research temper. True to its name , Ambrosia would provide first rate reading to the literary enthusiasts and leave a lasting imprint on the minds of readers. The first volume of Ambrosia marks the beginning of a positive and sustaining relationship with the readers. It carries the choicest papers from the proceedings of the significant and signal UGC Sponsored National Seminar , Building a Play, organized in the college on March 4 and 5 , presided over by the doyen of the theatre Mahesh Dattani himself . The illuminating views of the maestro Dattani would be published in the issue as also in the subsequent issues. The maiden issue is dedicated to the genre of theatre and all the papers which have been received from across the country are drama – oriented. My heartiest gratitude to the team of erudite scholars and academia who have reviewed the papers meticulously and selected them to be incorporated in the issue.
