Translation is not limited to a single concept or discipline. It encompasses all spheres of human activity and life.The concept of resilience moved from Physics and Engineering to study of ecological systems, Psychology, Anthropology and Pedagogy among others. It may be defined as the ability to maintain structure and pattern of behaviour in the face of disturbance or adversity. Subsequently ‘ecological resilience’ also was coined, which referred to the magnitude of disturbance an ecosystem could withstand without undermining self-regulated processes and structures. Adaptive capacity signifies the ability of an individual or community to handle changes in environment through observation, awareness and modifying survival patterns suitably. Present pandemic times have taught humankind to manage lifestyle in tune with altering situation around through emotional support from family, society and medical support system. Positive coping strategies are reflected in emotional resilience a community or region displays. Translation of literary texts helps in understanding resilience of members of a speech community in a region.  This panel invites papers highlighting role of translation studies in reflecting resilience of a community in preserving linguistic, regional and cultural identities and aspirations.
