DECOLONIZING THE MIND OF THE OPPRESSED: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF NGUGI WA THIONG’O AND PAULO FREIREKnowledge is power - this insight is at least four centuries old, formulated by philosopher Francis Bacon during the Enlightenment. His statement has lost nothing in terms of relevance and significance: Knowledge is power, and education is the fundamental precondition for political development, democracy and social justice. This paper explores how African writer Ngugi Wa Thiong’o establishes the relationship between the language and power in the process of decolonising the mind. On the other hand, Freire‟s generative themes is a student centered system of learning that challenges how knowledge is constructed in the formal education system and in society at large. Freire’s student centered approach stands in stark contrast to conventional educational practice, which he referred to as the “banking approach” to education. Freire has been able to draw upon and weave together a number of strands of thinking about educational practice and liberation .His theoretical innovations have had a considerable impact on the development of educational practice all over the world.Keywords: Colonisation,Banking Education, Reflection, Culture, Codifications, Praxis.
THE UN-TRAVERSED MARGINThe most awaited dawn of Indian Independence, along with the gaiety of freedom also brought the gloom of Partition of Indian sub-continent in 1947. The Political and geographical Partition was succeeded by religious fanatism which resulted in unprecedented dance of death and destruction. The religious turbulence threw millions of people haywire across the borders. Women were the victims and the worst sufferers in this communal vendetta of Men to seek revenge on one another. This aspect of the suffering is much focussed to criticise the ‘other religion’. Unfortunately, the suffering induced on Women by the Men of their own community in the guise of ’protectors’, is rarely spoken and recorded. Saadat Hasan Manto recorded this untraversed truth of the suffering afflicted on women in the short story ‘Open It’ (Khol Do). Therefore this paper attempts to speak about this unspoken savagery plagued on Women during the Partition of the Indian Sub-continent.Key Words- Partition, Holocaust, Fratricide, Religious affiliations, Trauma
VALUE CHAIN FINANCE - INITIATIVES IN INDIAThe nature of laws that govern the financial sector, as well as the quality of the institutions that enforce those laws, will largely determine the shape, size and depth of the financial sector. Of particular importance are the laws and institutions that facilitate/ promote or discourage/inhibit secured lending by influencing the ease with which agricultural and other rural assets can be used as collateral. These laws need to be reviewed and amended from time to time and financial/legal literacy and credit counseling in rural areas need to be continuously provided to users in order to ensure orderly growth of rural financial markets, since these are two issues of particular concern for the development of Rural Financial Markets(RFMs) in most developing countries. The experiences also confirm that mere establishment of an appropriate enabling environment does not guarantee that people will use their assets as collateral or use them prudentially. In rural areas, peoples’ understanding of their rights to own property and utility value of property owned is not adequate for them to seize available opportunities for their socio-economic development that their ownership makes possible. Efforts are, therefore, necessary to make them fully aware/educate potential borrowers as to the rights and responsibilities associated with property ownership, which can help them leverage their assets while understanding the risks in doing so.

The ICT has revolutionized teaching–learning process. One of the goals for integrating ICTs in education is to enhance teaching-learning practices there by improving quality of education. Considering that ICT plays an increasingly important role in society, especially if we take into account social, economic and cultural role of computers and Internet, it is clear that the time has come for the actual entry of ICT in the field of education. The combination of ICT and the internet certainly opens not only many opportunities for creativity and innovation, but also for approaching the teaching material to current generation of students. Technology saves time and gives students access to powerful new ways to explore concepts at a depth that has not been possible in the past. The growth of these communication and computer systems, their ease of use, the power and diversity of information transfer allow teachers and students to have access to a world beyond the classroom also interact with each other over a world geographic distance in a meaningful way to achieve the learning objectives. It has the potential to transform the nature and process of the learning environment and envision a new learning culture. Interactively, flexibility and convenience have become the order of the day in the ICT supported environment. ICT helps the learner to share learning resources and spaces, promote learner centered and collaborative learning principles and enhance critical thinking, creative thinking and problem solving skills. ICT based education is definitely the direction towards which the whole world is progressing.Keywords: ICT, Education, Teaching-Learning, Technology, Computer.

HIGHER EDUCATION IN INDIA: CHALLENGES AND REMEDIAL MEASURESGovernment data suggests that only one out of every seven children get the opportunity to go to college. The Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) for higher education is poor (13.8%). This is a situation to worry so far as higher education in developed countries are concerned. Report suggests that no Indian institute was listed in the top 200 universities in a global ranking. These data are sufficient enough to understand that lack of quantity and quality both are the major challenges to our higher education system. There are some other issues which affect both the quantity and quality, hence higher education. Improper governance decreases the chances of creating additional capacity as well as quality in spite of having policies RUSA. Lack of adequate infrastructure is another major concern that should be taken care, as appropriate physical environment is the basic need for education. Although the job market has increased manifold but still remains far behind from the demand. It is also a matter of concern that majority of students are jobless even after completing higher education. Improper use of human resources is also an issue of concern. Problems are many but we have to find out the solution with a positive attitude to implement those at ground level.Keywords- higher education, gross enrolment ratio, quantity, quality, skill

WOMEN’S EDUCATION IN NINETEENTH CENTURY BENGALI WOMEN’S WRITINGSWomen’s education was one of the most important social reforms in nineteenth centuryBengal. History books enunciate the role of mostly male and some female reformers in thedevelopment of women’s education. This paper, however, seeks to go beyond the patriarchalmeta narratives and argues that common women not only struggled for and achievededucation, but also used the power derived from education to argue for more widespreadreforms for women in the sphere of education besides reforms in marriage, widowremarriage, nation building and sartorial reforms. Excerpts from the personal reflectivewritings, especially articles in the progressive journals of the era, have been used asevidence. The paper seeks to establish that education not only granted women a sense ofagency but through writing also equipped them with a means of symbolic resistance whichallowed the women to challenge the patriarchal structures of authority in the society.Keywords: Women, Education, Personal Reflective Writings, Bengal, Nineteenth Century.

ROLE OF OPEN AND DISTANCE, EDUCATION IN HIGHER EDUCATIONIn the World today, Open and Distance Education (ODE) system has been gaining widespread popularity over the years. The explosive growth of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institutions and their scale of operations have been facilitated by continuous experiments and technological innovations in the field of ODE. In the light of these developments there is a need to assess the quality of the ODL in Globalization. Quality Assurance plays a pivotal role for highlighting the quality of both the learners as well as the teaching process in ODL. The improved access and availability of educational technology has enabled more students to participate in the learning process. New Educational Technologies have paved the way to a new learning techniques unconstrained by time and space. E-Learning, mobile technologies, communication and information access, and personal learning environments are becoming mainstream and, as a result the learning process is shifting away from teacher centered to the learner centered. Efficient delivery of such content may be carried out through Internet technology, Satellite or Microwave links as well as fiber optics. Open Learning has an important role to play by exploring new frontiers and developments in Open and Distance Education. The prominent users of this mode are worldwide in general and Asian region in particular. The growth of the ODE system in India and throughout the world has been phenomenal, particularly during the last two decades. Rapid changes have taken place in the practice of ODE, mainly driven by changes in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The revolution in ICT coupled with the social demand for education for all and the need for lifelong and continuing education have resulted in the new vistas of open learning for knowledge society.This paper attempts to study the importance of Distance Education in imparting education to the distance learners and its significance in making them independent in the present competitive world by providing flexible, accessible, qualitative and cost-effective education to women so that they can contribute to a more sustainable and prosperous society Keywords: - Distance Education, Learner, Empowerment.
