The present volume, Research Line, is the footstep of the same.

Among the luminaries who associated with the MURC, former Education Minister, Khumujam Ratankumar, was its formerly General Secretary, he stated. He concludes his speech by expressing his desire of widening the horizon and deepening the academic discourse through the collaborative effort of MURC, faculty members and members, so that 'Research Line' that was published would not be a just one time affair and its legacy be hopefully continued in posterity.
