Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur (SALU Khairpur) the only leading university of upper Sind conducted written tests for teaching faculty in various departments on Dec. 08, 2012. The department of English conducted written test from more than 50 aspirants having first class masters degree in English.The expert was invited from Bahauddin Zakria University Multan who prepared test commonly from general English. I could not figure out what the expert wanted to check or assess from this general test which constituted 20 MCQs and objective questions along with single subjective essay on Pakistani Culture. There was not a single question from English Literature against the expectations of majority of candidates. The result is yet to be announced and it was learned that this time the university would announce the results in time. Past experience is somewhat bitter where result was not announced for years and finally cancelled. The department of English is facing shortage of teachers with two permanent faculty members on study leave. The department of English after retirement of two literary giants Sir Samo Sb and Evergreen professor Sir F.A Shah is looking for fresh blood to join Sir Mukesh sb to expedite teaching of literature at Degree level.
SALU has recently witnessed great administrative change with new VC and Registrar and some improvements are expected this time. Being alumni of this great University I have always waited for better changes to take place here. My sincere wishes always stand in support of this university and want to serve here with devotion and commitment. For this reason I am ready to sacrifice my prestigious position in bureaucracy to work here. Lets see what happens. Either i am selected or not matters not; only the merit must be the order of day.
