MID-DAY MEAL SCHEME: A STUDY OF DIFFERENT SCHOOLS OF DISTRICT JAMMUFour important areas are identified for achieving the goal of Education for all. These are Access to Education, Enrolment of children, and Retention of the enrolled children As well as in academic achievement. The Mid Day Meal scheme is an effort to achieve and facilitate these objectives. Various schemes were implemented in the primary education sector by the Government to reach the disadvantaged population. Access to primary education was universalized through flagship programmes of Govt., like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, however, despite this; a few children are still deprived of Primary Education due to inability of their parents to send them to schools because of their poor economical status. For, these parents, sending their children to school means not only incurring extra financial burden but also depriving them of some money which their children would have earned otherwise by doing labour. That being the attitude of these economically backward parents, one may, perhaps, to motivate the parents and children was to bring their children to school by providing food and nutritional needs. Apart from enhancing school attendance and child nutrition, mid-day meal has an important social value and foster equality. Children learn to sit together and share a common meal; one can expect some erosion of caste prejudices, class inequality and reduce gender gap.

A NOVEL APPROACH CONTAINED IN THE TEACHINGS OF JAINISM TOWARDS EDUCATION WITH RELEVANCE TO MODERN INDIALet us approach Jainism as a sound philosophy of education. New India cannot ignore this now. In this transitory world, Dharma (Truth) is the greatest prop for life. It is Dharma alone, which leads life from misery to happiness, from discord to harmony, from darkness to light, from death to immortality, from bondage to freedom and salvation. Therefore one should ever seek shelter of Dharma (Truth). People of all countries and in all terms have been yearning for two things, firstly true and perfect knowledge and secondly, True Happiness. Despite all our efforts our so-called civilization has, after so long, succeeded in securing to us only a few pebbles on the sea-shore and got for its show-case only a few snapshots of Nature’s vast phenomena. The world of today has become so fastidious that it will not credit anything unless it confirms reason. Nothing will be acceptable the truth of it cannot be verified by means of an experiment; a telescope or a microscope. A true religion, if it is to be sincerely believed, must be scientific.The problem of problems today is how to stop the struggle between the rich and needy. The people of wealthy sections of society have plenty of food, clothing and bank balances yet they are struggling restlessly Key Words: Novel, Approach, Teachings Jainism, relevance, modern India

BENCH MARKING IN EDUCATION INCULCATION OF GANDHIANPHILOSOPHY IN 21ST CENTURY…….The name of Mahatma Gandhi transcends the bounds of race, religion and nation- states, and has emerged as the prophetic voice of the 21st century. He is remembered for his passionate adherence to the practice of non-violence and his supreme humanism. After the great Buddha and Jesus he once again demonstrated that non-violence could also be effective instruments of social change. A giant of a man with his frail body, his short dhoti, his walking stick, a khadi shawl over his bare shoulders and his round spectacles. A man whose footprints are found in every corner of this country, a man of the soil, a man who lives India its ethos, its culture, its fabric!Gandhi successfully demonstrated to a world, weary with wars and continuing destruction that adherence to Truth and Non-violence is not meant for individual behavior alone but can be applied in global affairs too. But the saddest part of today’s reality is that today’s generation either don’t know about Gandhi or are not provided enough opportunities to explore Gandhi and his ideologies. The school, the society, the polity, the community somehow does not take into cognizance about making the present generation familiar with the thoughts and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi. So a small little institute named Gandhi ShikshanBhavan in a quiet corner of Juhu, Mumbai is trying to making persistent effort to make the present generation understand the ideas and thought process of the Father of Nation by propagating it through not only words but by action. Gandhi envisioned an ideal society where justice is done “unto the last” and in which institution’s aim is to get the best out of man. We also are trying to promote the same.

ROLE OF CORRUPTION IN HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONCorruption nowadays has become a global phenomenon which every society faces though its degree of intensity varies from country to country and region to region. Despite human rights long history, there is no single universally agreed upon definition of corruption which can be substantiated. Furthermore, its causes, forms and impacts are diverse and multi-faceted. Understanding corruption by itself is a confusing and diverse undertaking. However, it is accepted and agreed that corruption is injurious to public administration, undermines democracy, degrades the moral fabrics of the society and violates human rights and social fabric of the society. The pain of corruption touches to all the human beings but it disproportionately affects the vulnerable sections of the society since they are weak and prone to ill effects in a notorious way. It reinforces discrimination, exclusion and arbitrariness prevalent in a society. Corruption is a universal problem undermining universal value-human rights that affects poor and down trodden people in a big way. However, on the contrary, guarantying human rights to each strata of society whether rich or poor in general and ensuring non-discrimination and participation in particular are useful preventive tools for corruption as they ultimately empower the society and create social accountability. The article explores the relationships between corruption and human rights in a broader way. It is argued that, the struggle to promote human rights and the campaign against corruption share a great deal of common ground since they intersect with each other. Both are struggling for the orderly and decent life of humans rooted in dignity and equality which is desired by all the human beings throughout the world. The article concludes the discussion by asserting that a concerted and inclusive approach is essential to overcome the problems of corruption and the violations of human rights prevalent universally.Key Words: Human Rights Activists, Corruption. Human rights, Human Dignity, Vulnerable Sections of the Society, Anti-Corruption Activists.
