The focus of the training included, How to find a topic, structure a paragraph, build a topic sentence, lengthen a paragraph, develop ideas, how to conclude etc. The program was very interactive with hands on experience, activities and discussions involving different groups of similar interests. The first day ended with a rough abstract at hand which was supposed to be rewritten for the next day. On the second day, the abstracts were reviewed and commented upon. Writing Templates were introduced, along with a lot of illustrations and tips to use them accordingly. Finally the most awaited one to one interaction with the research person regarding their research topics was held as a concluding session of the 2 day workshop. Dr P.K. Babu and Dr K. K.
