THE KOHLBERG- GILLIGAN CONTROVERSY AND THE GITASince long people have come to accept two types of moral orientations: Kohlberg’s ‘justice’orientation based on fairness and reciprocity and Gilligan’s ‘care’ orientation marked byrelatedness, responsiveness to others and their needs. The ‘care’ perspective symbolises whatthe Gita designates as nishkama karma - spontaneously reaching out to people to help themwhich has the highest moral worth for it does not involve even duty consciousness. Kantiancategorical imperative actions done for the sake of duty and not merely in accordance withduty may contain the element of self – consciousness or ego involvement. But in nishkamakarma actions are done completely for the sake of duty without any consciousness of it andnothing in return is ever thought of. Here the distinction between Kantian – Kohlbergian andthat of Gilligan ceases to be and the three merge with the nishkama karma of the Gita whichis the consummation of moral duty of man.

ROLE OF CASH CROP IN EMPLOYMENT GENERATION IN RURAL AREABetel vine crop is known as a commercial cash crop. The role of betel vine cultivators is feltmuch important in cultivation and marketing of betel vine leaves. Number of factors inspiredand attracted the farmers to grow betel vine with interest. The cultivation of betel vine requireda scientific and special skill and knowledge. Every activity of betel vine cultivation held its ownimportance. Plantation training, disease management, maintenance of humidity in the betel vinegarden, proper water management, harvesting and lowering is the main practices of betel vinecultivation. For these practices, skilled hands and mind were felt essential. Betel vinecultivators acquired this skill and knowledge by experiments and experience. Betel vinecultivators became perfect practitioners to collect returns. The researcher studied the socioeconomicstates of betel vine cultivators. In the world, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were themajor countries to cultivate betel vine leaves. Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines etc.were also noted for the cultivation of betel vine leaves. In Pakistan, large scale production ofbetel vine leaves is not possible and therefore Pakistan imported from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka,India and Thailand about 5000 tones of betel leaves worth of Rs. 20 cores (Doosani 1989). Thecultivation of betel vine leaves in Sri Lanka had a history of 2000 years. It is cultivated in thewestern region of Jafana, Kegaile and Gampha. Sri Lanka exported to Pakistan worth of 3000tons per year. Betel leaves production is one of the important commercial cash crop of India,Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, etc. In India, approximately50000 hectares were under cultivation.

A REVIEW ON FLORA FOR ANTI-DIABETIC PLANTS FROM NORTH MAHARASHTRADiabetes Mellitus (Madhumeh) is a common metabolic disorder. It is a fact that diabetes can’t be cured; and it has never been reported that someone recovered totally from diabetes. Allopathic medicinal system is expensive, provides only symptomatic relief, fails to revert the body to its normal state and after a long term therapy, includes several side effects.

ANALYTICAL STUDY OF AGRICULTURAL SOIL OF PURANDAR TALUKA (DISTRICT PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA). WITH RESPECT TO STATUS OF SOME MICRONUTRIENTSA study to assess the micronutrient status of agricultural soils of Purander taluka of Pune district was conducted. A total of five sampling stationsS1, S2, S3, S4 and S5 were considered, soil samples from farmer’s field were collected and analyzed for DTPA extractable micronutrient status. Content of micronutrient was in order of Mn> Cu> Fe> Zn. The DTPA- Mn, Fe, Cu and Zn in soils varied from 7.83 to 1.08, 4.0 to 0.55, 1.2 to 0.43 and 3.80 to 0.88 ppm. Among the micronutrients the deficiency of Fe and Zn are of major concern and soils require application of Zn and Fe fertilizers to maximize the crop yield. Deficiency is however likely to develop with continuous cropping and poor fertilizer management. Key words: Agriculture Soil, Micronutrients, Atomic absorption spectrophotometer.

CYBER CRIME AND CYBER TERRORISM ARE CONCERNS FOR EVERY SECTORCyber Crime is the use of Internet attacks in criminal activities, including acts of deliberate, large-scale disruption of computer networks, especially computers of personal use attached to the Internet, by the means of tools such as computer viruses. Cyber terrorism is a dual meaning term. Some authors choose a very narrow definition, relating to terrorist activities, by known terrorist organizations, of disruption attacks against information systems for the primary purpose of creating alarm and panic. By this narrow definition, it is difficult to identify any instances of cyber terrorism.Cyber terrorism can also be understood as the intentional use of computer, networks, and public internet to cause destruction and harm for personal objectives. Objectives may be political or ideological since this can be seen as a form of terrorism. There is much concern from government, public and media sources about potential damages that could be caused by cyber terrorism, and this has prompted official responses from government agencies. Several minor incidents of cyber terrorism have been documented. Key Words: Issues, Cyber, Crime, Terrorism

PERFORMANCE ON BUFFETS IN SELECT HOTEL’S RESTAURANTS IN KOLHAPURIt has been observed during the field research that there could be lacunae in the buffets provided by the hotel and in guest expectations. This research work is an attempt to determine and to bridge the gap between the guests’ expectations and limitations on the organizations, and still to ensure profitability in hotels and also maintaining higher guest satisfaction levels. In this competitive market a guest has innumerable choices to choose from a la cart menu cards to elaborate buffets. Restaurants must provide buffet options in lieu with recent trends as well as guest expectations. Once the restaurant understands the guest needs, the management can focus in meeting those expectation Each guest has different expectations about buffet services, thus it is important to know their impressions and help management overcome the gap between guest expectation and performance. The results of this research work shows that chefs, Food and Beverage Managers and Guests perceptions are concurrent at few points and differ on some. Chef’s point of view suggests that guests are more quantity conscious and also more emphasis is to be given on appetizers and beverages served along with the meal. New products offered on the buffet would attract more and more guests. From Food and Beverage Manager’s point of view guests are very cost conscious and expect a complete meal experience which include various other factors such as family area, multiple options in food selection and even some entertainment. From guest’s point of view buffet should be much more than food-it should be an entire meal experience. Good taste, food maintained at right temperature, a warm and welcoming staff and a decent ambience are few of the important aspects.
