• Connecting specific maps having two equal-sized faces and its genus

Graham Higman introduced the concept of januarial as a specific map having two equal sized faces under the action of $\langle x, y : x^2 = y^k = (xy)^l = 1\rangle$ on a finite set. In this paper we take up the question posed by Graham Higman that what is the maximum number of circuits in the subgraph of a simple januarial for any value of $k$? We describe conditions under which januarials are connected and larger januarials are obtained. In an effort to look at topological features of the connected januarial, we find out genus of the januarial, genera of the two faces and number of circuits.
