The Chandigarh Government College Teachers’ Association is pleased to launch its journal “Intellectual Quest’. The journal provides a platform for sharing of data and view based upon research in the field of humanities and social sciences.

The efforts of the advisory and editorial board of this journal are appreciable. I am sure the journal will be able to provide a glimpse of the ever changing scenario of the society around us.

Beyond the success of this scholarly endeavour lies the good wishes and support of Chandigarh Administration and the members of CGCTA.
