    Abstract: Cultural Diplomacy is adopted as a medium for establishing strong international relations among counties of distinct cultures, socio-spatial dimensions and ethnicities. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation is one such international body which creates space and opportunities to connect with people from different countries and tries to establish bonds of solidarity through various programs and festivals through cultural exchange. Among other mediums, books are considered a SoftPower. The paper focuses on Indian literature and how it has tried to establish bonds of solidarity on a global pedestal. It is observed that the inter-literary connections between countries like Russia, France, China, England and America proved significant in consolidating international relations.

Central banks are crucial to economic growth because they ensure financial and economic stability.

The first paper was published back in 1989. After one article being published per year until 2002, the number of articles increased slightly from 2003 to 2009, and it started growing prominently in 2010. In 2019, the topic it reached its highest peak with a total of 13 articles published. The analysis also resulted in identifying six streams related to the research topic: unemployment, financial crisis, financial system, inflation, interest rate, and capital movement.
