The propagation of optical pulses has been investigated in different dispersive media. A transition from the Superluminal to subluminal of the propagation velocity is observed through a resonantly absorbing medium when the propagation distance is changed from a short to long range. The propagation velocity is described within the framework of net group and reshaping delays, even the medium causes a great deal of deformation in the transmitted pulse. This has been confirmed for arbitrary shape of pulses through different types of absorptionless dispersive media such as angularly dispersive one, photonic crystal fiber, etc. However, in the case of phase modulated chirping pulses in a resonant absorber, the propagation velocity is strongly influenced by the reshaping delay. Direct observation of superluminality or fast light has been confirmed from a series of experiments of pulse propagation through a fiber ring resonator within its negative group delay limit. It is observed that the superluminal propagation of pulse peak is an analytic continuation over time of the earlier portion of the input pulse envelope.
