DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE OF INDIA: OPPORTUNITY OR THREAT?
Demography or the scientific study of human population encompasses the study of the readily observable human phenomena such as the change in population size, its composition and distribution in space. India has a distinct comparative factor advantage as a vast reservoir of skilled manpower. Demographic transition in India is opening up new avenues especially in the economic sector .The rapid advancements in the field of science and technology have elevated the status of India to a new global buzzword. The economic growth and the betterment of the living standard of the people go hand in hand when we ponder over the relevance of demographic profile. For India, growth is an oft repeated query. Demographic change may provide a boost to economic growth, but appropriate policies are needed to allow this to happen. Policy choices can potentiate India’s realization of economic benefits stemming from demographic change. A country may instead find itself with large numbers of unemployed or underemployed working-age individuals devoid of these policies. This scenario would rather become a “demographic disaster” than demographic dividend, in some instances promoting state fragility and failure, potentially with adverse political, social, economic, and ecological spillovers to other countries. The paper attempts to analyse the policies that would enable India to optimize these emerging opportunities and how as a nation we can turn out to be winners and not losers.Keywords: demography, economic growth, sustainable development, health, youth.

ATTITUDE OF PG STUDENTS’ TOWARDS USING E-RESOURCES IN LEARNING
E-resource is short term for electronic resources or electronic information resources. These are collections of information in electronic or digital format that are accessed on an electronic device such as mobile phone, laptop, computers etc. Today availability of e-resources in a university library is becoming an imperative role. The present paper examines the attitude of PG students’ towards using e-resources in their learning. It is useful for finding information not yet available in books, or obtaining up-to-date information on current events or issues. It also provides with authoritative, accurate, current, objective reference material not readily available through a search engine like Google. 200 PG students were chosen by random sampling technique from various departments of Gulbarga University. Standardized tool was used developed by Dr. S Rajasekar (Attitude towards using e-resources). The results indicated that post graduate students have favorable attitude towards using e-resources in and off the campus. It is also found that there is a significant difference based on gender and management. Necessary suggestions were given by the students for the development of e-resources with reference to the browsing period.

SURVEY TO DETERMINE THE PERCEPTION OF THE PUBLIC REGARDING THE IMPACT OF EDUCATIONALTECHNOLOGY
Due to the vast population of our country most of the people are not in a position to get a single meal per day and not even proper clothing or shelter. Then how can we imagine them having access to technology. Educational Technology has not been much emphasized upon and no one from the group of teachers is eager to apply technologies in education. This is a common scenario although exceptions exist. Before implementing new technologies the policy makers and curriculum planners must be clear whether the previous common technologies have been made accessible to all the people in general and learners of various institutions in particular and quality control is available or not. Here in this study we will verify the perceptions. It is found that everyone has the need for educational technology and is aware of its merits and demerits but even they face a lot of difficulties due to lack of suitable financial and administrative support and access should be made equal to all to make learners and common people as efficient as possible
Keywords: technology, education, learners, quality, perceptions

MANAGEMENT OF GRADING AND PACKING OF CHEWABLE PAN
The method of packing of betel vine leaves and package materials used for it varied from region to region. Packing of betel vine leaves dependent upon quality of leaves, seasons and the availability of packing materials. The betel leaves were packed according to size, colour, texture and maturity on which the chewing quality depended. Grading was done in different ways in different areas. Grading of betel leaves was dependent upon their position on the betel leaves on vine, their maturity and production quality betel leaves. The branches of mulberry were used for packing betelvine leaves. Banana fiber and leaves were also used as a packing material Bamboo baskets also used to pack small contains up to three thousand leaves. This package was locally called a Karandi. About six thousand leaves were packed in the banana fiber with the help of branches of mulberry. They were called as Dappa. In the Dappa and Karandi, Kalli leaves were packed. Fapada leaves had large size and were packed in Dag containing twelve thousand leaves. The bottom and top of the Dag made-up by using ring of mulberry branches. The betel leaves were marketed in local markets or sent to noted city markets. The betel levees were distributed to merchant by the local commission agents. The pan-shop keepers kept the leaves for their purpose by sprinkling water. The leaves were to be kept in fresh conditions for five to six days by sprinkling water continuously and wrapping the leaves with wet cloth. The price was not fixed by open auction. The price was always settled on the basis of sampling for the quality. The commission agents charged their commission near about eight to twelve percent of the sale. They also deducted all other charges and the remaining amount was to be settled. The dag, dappa and karandi were tied with the help of string or plastic rope. The package was cushioned on top and at the bottom with moist sugarcane leaves and fresh banana leaves. The betelvine leavers were arranged in circular rows in the Dag. The rows were arranged from the periphery in the dag and closed towards the center. Thus rows upon rows were arranged. In case of fapada dag, there was a hole in the center with 10 to 15 cms diameter allowing free aeration. Commission agents drew leaves samples from any part of the dag. Each betelvine was picked at six to ten times in a year. Pickings were so arranged that all vines were not to be picked at the same time. Three types of pickings were practiced. Leaves of main stem were called as fapada. The leaves that were borne on branches of vine were called as kalli. The leaves that had lower parts of vine and one betelvine coils were known as hakkal or Gabal. But they did not fetch better price. Fapada leaves were older, thick, raped and dark green which fetched high price as compared to kalli leaves. In every day, approximately, a single labour is able to cut one or two dags (12,000 leaves).Key Words: Grading, Unit of packing, i.e. Dag, dappa and Karandi

AN APPRAISAL OF PERFORMANCE OF KOLKATA METRO RAILWAY
Rapid population growth fuelled by in-migration has been the hallmark of the leading mega cities of India, creating a “top-heavy” structure of India’s urbanization resulting in urban sprawl. Like other metropolitan cities in India, Kolkata continues to struggle with the problems of urbanization: p especially traffic congestion. The burgeoning transport problem of Kolkata drew the attention of the city planners, the State government leading to the development of a Mass rapid transit system. The aim of the work is also to analyse the impact and assessing degree of satisfaction of present day access of the people of Kolkata(under current operational stretch) to one of the sought after modes of transport and also to chalk out feasible remedial measures, which will be helpful for planners and policy makers to improve the system.Keywords- traffic congestion, mass rapid transit, satisfaction, lacuna
