I am Dr Madhavi Godavarthy; a professor of English. Both; teaching and writing are my passions. I have published two books of poetry - 'Winged Words - From the Sea to the Sky' and 'Breathing Syllables' - Haiku. My interests include nature, philosophy and life itself. I believe in humanizing my classrooms as a teacher and I strongly believe that empathy plays an important role in our lives.
