The need to promote core human values that could facilitate an agenda for democracy, social justice and sustainable socio-economic development throughout the globe has always been paramount to Nebula. Indeed, the forces of globalization have further enmeshed the global space to the extent that we can no longer afford to luxuriate in knowledge simply for knowledges sake. Interestingly, the vision of Nebula is not just the mere acquisition of knowledge but for the understanding and positive transformation of our world. The articles in Nebula 4.3 aptly capture these vistas of hope and renewal. As usual, the contributors to this edition are drawn from various geographical, disciplinary and ideological backgrounds, hence the variety of styles and approaches. This easily discernible trend, however, seems to be one of the major strengths of Nebula 4.3 because each contributor brings into his/ her article his/her own insight and disciplinary perspective. This, no doubt, has further enriched the collection and broadened the multidisciplinary and theoretical horizons of the journal. Like the previous editions, this particular issue confirms the fact that every discipline reinforces the other. Thus, the ultimate goal is to bridge the artificial academic boundaries created by the apostles of disciplinary exclusivity. Consequently, the issues raised in this edition dovetail into literature, philosophy, sociology, democracy, development economics, gendered proverbs, corruption and so on. This wonderful package is vintage Nebula; a multidisciplinary journal par excellence.
