A sneak peek into the major findings of the study. 2 Sentences maximum Eg: Life writing, this paper would argue, relies heavily on reconstructed memory and not on memory as an honest record of past events. 5. An overview of the most significant conclusion/ a foray into the advancement of existing research that the study achieves. 2 Sentences maximum Eg1: Asserting that life-writing selectively exploits the past, the study attempts to conceptualize this problematic of forgetting. Eg2: Scrutinising the genius tropes that propel the 'aesthetics of perfection' this paper suggests that instead of discarding, these bastard texts need to be celebrated, for, to these marginalised works these writers owe a great deal.
