I welcome you all to Reflections, a magazine published by the Department of English, University of Asia Pacific, Dhaka, Bangladesh. This first issue of Reflections brings forth creative works of our students and teachers, their thoughts, recollections, experiences and reflections.

Initially we had planned to publish Reflections as a regular, bi-annual magazine. Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic situation we have been unable to do so. As we have shifted to an online mode of instruction, we are publishing a digital version of Reflections.  

Life has come to almost a standstill and this great pause in our life has given young creative minds ample opportunity to reflect and reveal their energy and aspirations as budding writers. Through the publication of our magazine we hope to cultivate a love for reading and writing among our students. Our goal is to encourage and provide young creative writers with a platform to express their potential.

I hope you our readers will enjoy and appreciate the experience of going through Reflections and provide us with constructive feedback. 

I am grateful to all the faculty members and students of the Department of English, UAP for making it possible to publish this first issue of Reflections.

Thank you.
