The target group for this material will be teachers, and the material will be so presented that teachers can use it, with suitable modifications, so as to be accessible to the learners.
The language of the material has to be chaste, chiselled and beautiful. One can use materials already available in the concerned literature, which might have been authored by good or famous writers. If they are perfect for our purposes in their original form, we may adopt them in toto. This would be largely applicable in regard to illustrative stories/plays/ poems
The collected material will be in any language; but later on, it can be translated into the language in which publications will be proposed to be brought out. A special emphasis will be laid on writings pertaining to the vision of universality and unity of humanity
At a larger stage, a small Editorial Board will be constituted, and final shape will be given by the Board.
