POLYPLOIDY IN FLOWER CROPSPolyploidy breeding is an effective method for doubling the chromosome number of a species. Genetic variations created can be further used in breeding programme.Polyploidy breeding holds immense prospects in developing desirable varieties in flower crops.With the help of polyploidy, changes in morphology and cytology of plant are observed. Tetraploids are more vigorous and larger in size. Tetraploids produce thick and dark green leaves. Mostly seen consequences of induced polyploidy are increase in size and shape of plants; leaves, branches, flower parts, fruits and seeds. Intensification of flower colour and fragrance is observed in Marigold plants following chromosome number doubling. Chemicals like colchicine, oryzalin, triXuralin and amiprophosmethyl (APM) etc. are used in induction of polyploids. Although colchicine remained the most used for induction of polyploidy. Chromosome doubling using various chemicals was observed in flower crops viz., Marigold, Aster, Orchid, Jasmine, Lillium, Chrysanthemum, Alstromeria, Anthurium, Roseand Gerbera.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF FRUITSThe present study aimed at studying nutritional facts of fruits and its impact on betterment of health. Food packets come with labels on it stating its nutritional facts.

STUDY OF CO-RELATION OF EMOTIONAL COMPETENCE AND NEUROTIC TENDENCY OF M. ED. STUDENTWe all expect teacher for our kids should be competent and cool. It is teacher educator who helps teacher to develop himself/herself like that. So it is obvious that the teacher educator herself should be enough competent and having normal and well developed personality. Our M.Ed. students who are would be teacher educator and we expect them to be a good teacher educator in future. But just expectations are not enough; we should test them and help them wherever there is need. For that purpose the researcher who is a teacher educator thought of testing own students for emotional competence and neurotic tendency, as both of these characteristics matters a lot specially in teacher education as their students will be working with future teachers. And we all know that students imitate & behave like what they observe rather than what they hear about. The researcher worked on the sample of 30 students. Gave them ‘Emotional Competence Scale’ and “KNPI’ (Kundu’s Neurotic Personality Inventory) to solve and found out correlation between these two attributes. More than 50 % students were ‘average\' in Emotional Competence; 37 % were ‘competent’ and 10% students were ‘incompetent’. And only 20 % students were ‘normal’; 60 % students were ‘slightly neurotic’ and 20 % were ‘moderately neurotic’There was no significant correlation between ‘Emotional Competence’ and ‘Neurotic Tendency’ of M. Ed. students. So the conclusion which is limited to the sample group is neurotic tendency and emotional competence are two separate and independent factor not having relation between them.Key words: ‘Emotional Competence’, ‘Neurotic Tendency’ and ‘M. Ed.S tudents’

TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENTManagement is the process of planning, organizing, actuating and controlling an organizations operation in order to achieve a coordination of the human and material resources essential in the effective and efficient attainment of objectives. Although the concept of quality is very old, today it is perhaps the major preoccupation of organizations world-wide. However, in the recent years, TQM has captured the world-wide attention and is being adopted in many organizations, both profit and non-profit. Step through TQM\'s door and the first person you\'ll want to meet will be W. Edwards Deming, credited as the founding father of Total Quality Management. Deming grew up in the twenties and thirties, a time when all you needed to succeed as a factory worker was the ability to work long hours at extremely boring jobs. Most industrial tasks required little or no formal schooling and illiteracy rates were high.
GENDER DISCRIMINATION AND WAY OF EXPRESSION: A STUDY OF EUNICE DE SOUZA’S POEMSA close look at the growth of Indian English poetry shows that most serious, profound and revolutionary poems are seen after a long way, in this decade as I am talking about poems written by woman. In this postmodern period, we have come across so many Indian woman poets and their poetry shows so many aspects as they find being a woman. Their poetry shows their perception regarding the realities of commonplace and also the problems they have to face in the society they live in. Their poetry sometimes is considered as poetry of self-revelation and confession. They want to create their own space and identity in the family and also in the society. They have broken their long state of silence and celebrate womanhood by breaking the bondage of subjugation to create woman’s existence in the society. So many women poets came out to show these like Kamala Das, Meera Alexander, Imtiaz Dharkar, Gauri Despande, Eunice de Souza and so on. In this paper I want to show how Eunice de Souza shows the gender blindness and discrimination that she has experiences in the male dominated society and how she expresses those with the help of irony and images in her poetry.Key words: Male, Gender, Irony, Female, Ethics

USING OF MOBILE PHONES AMONG THE RURAL PEOPLE IN SALEM DISTRICT OF TAMIL NADUMobile phone is widely used by all the sections of people irrespective of gender, caste, religion, race and nation. In India, this mobile telecommunication was introduced in the year 1994 through establishment of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) by enactment of National Telecom Policy. Before the establishment of TRAI, the central government provided the service to the general public through landline mode and that too owned by government. But after the establishment of TRAI, the central government opened the door to the private network services to provide best services to the general public. It means that due to the competition, the private companies come forward to provide best services at a cheap rate. This enables the general public to purchase mobile phone on their own and communicate easily as well as quickly with others as they wish. Therefore mobile phone is the part and parcel of everyone’s life and it became an unavoidable instrument for everybody. The present paper is an attempt to study the using of mobile phone among the rural people in Salem District of Tamil Nadu.

VIOLATION OF WOMEN HUMAN RIGHTS IN TRIPURA AND ROLE OF EDUCATIONWomen constitute almost half of the world population. However, their enjoyment of rights equally with that of men is far satisfactory. Gender differences, customs, traditions, social attitudes etc. are mainly responsible for inequality between men and women. Every individuals of the society have equal rights to live, enjoy to equality and to live peacefully in the society .General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10th December 1948. This declaration provides that all men and women are entitled to civil, political, social, and cultural rights without any discrimination. The constitution of India also guarantees the equality of rights of men and women. However, in the sphere of women’s human rights in India, there exists a wide gulf between theory and practice. The women in India in general and Tripura in particular very often have to face discrimination, injustice and dishonor. Though women in India have been given more rights as compared to men, even then the condition of women in India is miserable. The paper will focus on the human rights of women in Tripura and that how all the fundamental rights given to the women are being violated in Tripura, by focusing on the various crimes done against them.

Patriarchy, Feudalism and Colonialism in Sunlight on a Broken ColumnAccording to Simon de Beauvoir: “The curse that is upon woman as vassal consists...in the fact that she is not permitted to do anything; so she persists in the vain pursuit of her true being through narcissism, love or religion.”1 But Attia Hosain’s respects her religion and thus she is not as radical as de Beauvoir. She mentions her views on religion thus: “To me religion was that… well drawing everybody together. It was never out of my mind that I was a Muslim.”2 So in Attia Hosain’s critique of the patriarchal construction of Muslim society is not directed to Islam, rather she opposes the patriarchy for its interpretation of religion as a tool to perpetuate its domination over women. She firmly believes that by just pushing women out of domestic boundaries does not provide freedom for women but their cerebral imprisonment should be wiped out to enhance them. Though she stays in England, Attia’s roots are indigenous. In order to emancipate women she prefers not to imitate the west blindly but she prefers to expose an association of colonialism, feudalism and patriarchy that suppress women as depicted in Sunlight on a Broken Column.Key Words: Patriarchy, Colonialism, Feudalism, Partition, Identity

SECURE PACKETS IN WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS BASED ON FREQUENCY-SELECTIVE CHANNELSWireless sensor network faces several unique challenges. The scale, resource limitations, and new threats such as node capture suggest the use of in-network key generation. The wireless channel itself can be used to generate information theoretic secure keys. By exchanging sampling messages during device movement, a bit string is derived known only to the two involved entities. Yet, movement is not the only option to generate randomness: the channel response strongly depends on the signal frequency as well. In this work, we introduce a key generation protocol based on the frequency-selectivity of multipath fading channels. We discuss in this paper how to secure packets in wireless networks.Keywords: secured packet, wireless sensor network, key generation protocol
