Director

 

I Prof. Shatrughna Kumar am working in IGNOU since September 1987 and as a Professor in Hindi since 2007.I am distinguished scholar with expertise in Comparative Indian literature, Dalit literature, Kabir literature, Translation, Painting, Indian culture, Buddhism and Human rights. In addition to the Doctorate degree, I have certificates in Japanese and Bangla to my credit. I have lingual efficiency in Hindi, Bhojpuri, Maithili, Magahi, English, Bengalese, Japanese, Urdu and Colloquial Romanian. Also I have developed course material/audio-video material/Interactive Multimedia etc. In addition I am regularly involved in delivery of programmes related to innovation, orientation, teleconferencing, counselling sessions etc. I have also performed to duties like observer, viva vocc, practical etc. I am also a Research Guide, Editor of journals/publications, member of professional bodies/ boards/ committees. I have also been conferred with awards and fellowships. I was a visiting professor in university of Bucharest, Romania. I taught Hindi language, literature and Indian culture to my Romanian students. It is notable that when I joined the University of Bucharest, there were only five students, due to my teaching method and about Indian literature, which interested and attracted more and more students that the number increased to 30 students. I have also taught Hindi language and Indian culture to an Italian diplomat’s wife in New Delhi. In 2008 I started working on Bhojpuri language and established Bhojpuri centre in IGNOU. The inspiration behind in making of Bhojpuri course was the epic “Veer Kunwar Singh” which my father had forcefully asked his childhood friend Harenardeo Narayan to write and got it published by his own money. It is notable that this historical work was done before my birth. After years of hard work I formed an expert committee consisting of thinkers of Bhojpuri language and literature from different corners of the country. I was proposer presenter for Bhojpuri course and single handed finished this Historical job. It is also evident that my effort in introducing Bhojpuri language in IGNOU has provided quite a publicity to the university. It is a history created in IGNOU for the very first time
