PROFESSIONALISM AMONG THE PUPIL TEACHERS: A SIX-SIGMA APPROACH IN TEACHER EDUCATIONEducation is a process of acquiring and being able to apply knowledge. It also refers to the process of learning. It is very contextual and qualitative in nature. Today, in the technologically advanced scenario, quality education is the paramount need of every nation. It is the responsibility of teachers to provide opportunities, nurture capabilities and maximize learning for quality output. They should acquire professionalism. Possessing professionalism through experiences during service period is very risky, time consuming and might not be successful while, inculcating these skills during pre service training could be promising and quality oriented.As training is entirely different from teaching, it is the molding up of personality according to the desired or required skills for that particular job world, it must inculcate professionalism among the trainers. It is thus inevitable to make teachers understand the requirements of the teaching profession. Therefore, an attempt was taken to design an innovative assessment process for the performance of pupil teachers. This design is based on six sigma approach used for quality management. The project was conducted in a Self Financed Teachers Education Institute, Yamunanagar. It was carried on 56 pupil teachers studying in the institute. Mixed type of approach was used for data collection. The result shows very promising achievements. The work recommends six sigma approaches in education sector for quality output.

EFFECT OF SEVIN ON THE GLYCOGEN CONTENT OF FRESH WATER SNAIL, THIARA LINEATAAquatic contamination by pesticides, arising as a result of their extensive use in agricultureand public health program. Carbamates are now a day increasingly used due to theirbiodegradable nature and less persistence in the environment. However, indiscriminate useof these pesticides for crop protection causes much damage to the aquatic fauna. Thecarbamate, Sevin, caused severe alterations in biological steps of aquatic snail, Thiaralineata. The snail is economically important which serves as an intermediate host of varioustrematod parasites, which causes severe diseases to human being as well as domesticanimals. The gastropod mollusc, T. lineata is a filter feeder at secondary level of fresh waterecosystem. Hence, it felt necessary to study alteration in the levels of glycogen. Theacclimatized, healthy, active and same sized mature adult animals were considered for anexperiment. The three groups of ten snails each were exposed to sub-lethal concentration(0.913 ppm) of Sevin for 1,7 and 14 days, simultaneously controls were run. The first groupwas sacrificed and different parts of the body, viz., gonad, hepatopancreas and foot wereseparated. From second group, reproductive tract and visceral organs (rest of the body) andfrom third group whole body was separated and total glycogen was estimated. The resultswere statistically analyzed and were found to be significant.Keywards: Thiara lineata, Sevin, Glycogen.

He stressed on traditional spiritual attitude with the totaldevelopment from education, which is related to modern age of the world with reference toIndia. Gandhi is the politician, the philosopher, the socialist and the educationist. He liveswith the accumulation of Karmayaog, Dnyanyog and Bhaktiyoga. The thought of Gandhi onEducation is the basic way of life for all.Gandhi stresses on total development of a student. The main responsibility is todevelop body, mind, soul and the intelligence. He gives importance to emotional and mentaldevelopment. He says, the student, who is going to be a responsible part of society, we wantto stress on his social and moral development through the education. But there is no any kindof philosophy of life in present education, which is going to make a student as a nationalperson.The significant concept of Gandhi is ‘3 H’. The‘3 H’ means to the Head, Heart andthe Hand. Gandhi explores this concept about total development of student. Gandhi wants toestablish a co-ordination with parallel development of head, heart and hand. It means toIntellectual, Emotional development with work culture of human together.Gandhi will to be a form co-ordination and co-relation between different subjectswhich is included in curriculum and education faculties.Gandhi gives to parallel significance to Liberal and Vocational Education system ofcontemporary India.Gandhi’s philosophy of education is collaboration of naturalism, existentialism andspiritualism.

J. KRISHNAMURTI ON EDUCATION: PHILOSOPHICAL PERSPECTIVEJ. Krishnamurti: A Philosopher of modern age. The various new significantphilosophical concepts are draw-out from the thoughts of J. Krishnamurti. He is a verynaturalistic. We found the grass roots of modern philosophy in the philosophical andeducational thoughts of J. Krishnamurti. We can search the fundamental principles ofexistentialism & realism in the thoughts of J. Krishnamurti.J. Krishnamurti properly stresses on peace, non-violence, sensitivity. He sayseducation is not a process; it is a naturalistic inquiry by the students. Education is the selfacceptance by the student. We try to know what they want, not to what we are giving to them.Education means, we are connected with the total development of each human being,helping him to realize his own highest and fullest capacity. The fullest development of everyindividual creates a society of equals.Education means being sensitive to everything around one,- to the plants, the animals,the trees, the sky, water, the river, the birds on the wing and also to the moods of the peoplearound one, and to the stranger who passes by.He gives very clear perception about learning, - the place of authority and freedom,motivation and competition, discipline and coercion, the teacher-student relationship, fearand sensitivity, solitude and meditation, love, beauty, pleasure and total development ofattention from concentration, function from status and security from dependency.The conservation with self and independence with self freedom is merely significantand it is the first step to achieve ourselves, and it can be possible through the education.The student, the teacher, the guardian and the school are the major and basic factorof education. J. Krishnamurti very deeply thinks on these factors for education, which has apower to change the world with individual.J. Krishnamurti comments on whole human life. Life is an accumulation ofsatisfaction, beauty, Love and pain with cruelty. We will try to know this nature of life. Thistype of nature of life cannot be understood by the subject experts. The end of psychologicalconflicts and sorrow cannot be possible through technical progress. The physical progress ismain tool of the end of human beings. The technical progress is became a very essential intoday’s situation and our present life style. But the technical development is purelymeaningless without self knowledge.Key words: J.

INDIAN WOMAN AT THE CROSS ROADS: A STUDY OF SHASHI DESHPANDE'S HEROINESThe female protagonists in their writings evince sufficient vigour and courage toquestion the oppressive role of society, religion and culture, but yet they refrain from takingthe paths suggested by the western feminists. They rather seek to find their own paths. Thepresent paper reflecting on the three major novels of Shashi Deshpande, attempts to provethe point that Indian feminism as reflected in the Indian fiction is a unique phenomenon thathas to be valued on its own scale and should not be weighed against the scales of the westernfeminist literature. For this purpose I have attempted a critique of the female protagonists inthree of Shashi Deshpande\'s novels, namely The Dark Holds No Terrors, Roots and Shadowsand That Long Silence. In all these novels, Shashi Deshpande objectifies new femalesubjective experiences with a gynocentric vision. She basically reflects on the problems andconcerns of the middle class Indian women. Her writings, rooted in the culture in which shelives, remain sensitive to the common everyday events and experiences, and they give artisticexpression to something that is simple and mundane. Her feminism is peculiarly Indian in thesense that it is born out of the predicament of Indian women placed between contradictoryidentities: tradition and modernity, family and profession, culture and nature. Her art isintensely personal, not political. Her feminism rooted in the native environment tends to behumanistic and optimistic in its outlook.Key Words: Gynocentric, Feminism, Optimistic, mundane, western feminities.
