Dear fellow survivors and those who are still struggling,

Its been a pleasure to see this blog being used by so many people across the world, from the Virgin Islands to Madagascar. It is also enthusing to see that a lot of people have found the articles helpful, particularly in times of pre-examination or submission distress. 

Yet, it has also been the source of much disappointment as the blog doesn’t seem to have triggered much sharing of ideas and opinions among students thinking and writing independently and has instead done exactly the reverse and given people an easy option out of doing independent research.

Given that this was by no means the purpose of the blog and that there are hardly any new works being contributed to the set of essays already uploaded, leading the blog to stagnate. We are extremely sorry to announce that we might pull this blog off the web in a weeks time unless there are some new contributions. So for the last time, do send in any original essays, articles and assignments that you may have pertaining to literature, culture, textual politics at survivingbaenglish@gmail.com. 

Sorry for sounding so uptight! It hurts us mortally to sound like stern anti-plagiarism sticklers for academic originality, but such is life!
