Tourism is now well recognised as an engine of growth in the various economies in the world. Several countries have transformed their economies by developing their tourism potential. Tourism has great capacity to generate large-scale employment and additional income sources to the skilled and unskilled. Today the concept of traditional tourism has been changed. Some new areas of the tourism have been emerged like Agro- Tourism. Promotion of tourism would bring many direct and indirect benefits to the people.

ACT 2009 (MAHARASHTRA): ROLE OF JUDICIAL ACTIVISM IN ANNIHILATION OF THE CASTE SYSTEM

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5821/5829

\"\"This paper focuses on the Right to Education Act (RTE) 2009, Maharashtra, with specific importance to the role of annihilation of the Indian caste system and the role of judicial activism with regards the same. It is important to note in this regards that the Indian Constitution, Art. 21, Right to Education Act 2009 Maharashtra (under Art. 8 and 9), refers to cases for judicial activism Since education is intrinsically related to a just and free society, it ought to be inexorably related to the radical praxis of the programme of the annihilation of caste. This paper also focuses on the social movement in Maharashtra and the struggle for equal and free education. Despite critiques of the RTE, it seems that making the right to education a fundamental act, is indeed a revolutionary step. Yet, because of the inbuilt caste-mentality prevailing in large parts of India, there are severe side effects, like casteism in midday-meal scheme in schools, school admissions, etc. And because of the adverse effects of globalization, where the rule of money is made final, its impact of the social justice movement has been severely affected

Keywords: Education, Caste, Judicial Activism

ATTITUDE OF THE PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS TOWARDS INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5830/5833

\"\"Research findings from across the globe indicate that as more and more students from diverse backgrounds populate 21st century classrooms, schools and teachers are struggling to respond to wide array of students. Diversified classrooms need intense efforts on the part of the teachers to respond to the growing individual differences among the student population. In this regard, the study was conducted to analyze the role and relevance of pre service teacher education programmes for inclusive education. A sample of 500 student teachers, pursuing Elementary Teacher Education Programme (Final year) from the DIETs in Delhi, was chosen by the way of Incidental sampling.  The data was collected on a 5 point Likert scale. The results were used to suggest interventions for the teacher education programmes.

LEVEL OF URBANISATION AND THEIR DISPARITIES IN MAHARASHTRA STATE

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5953/5964

 The one day has seen the birth of thousands of towns and cities, many of which have largely expanded during the last 50 years. Towns and cities have taken shape as centre of administrative and cultural significance through the centuries. As we can observe that the population in urban area is increasing too rapidly. Mostly people are moving to urban from rural area to have a more comfortable life, higher salary and better educational environment. At the moment, India is among the countries of low level of urbanization. Number of population residing in urban areas has increased from 2.58 crores in 1901 to 37.71 crores in 2011. India is the most populous countries in the world. Our country covers only 2.4 per cent of the land area of the world, whereas it is the home of more then 16.87 per cent of the world’s population. Since the new economic policies were adopted in the country, Maharashtra has seen fast urban growth. Maharashtra has the highest level of urbanization in India at 45.23 per cent compared to 29.5 per cent as the all India average. Census data were used to study the nature and pattern of urbanization in India with special reference to the state of Maharashtra. Urbanization depends on the socio-economic system of the society and the rate of its development. Maharashtra state urban population growth is considered for the period 1901 to 2011.

SOCIAL COMPETENCE AMONG RESIDENTIAL AND NON-RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL SCHEDULED TRIBE STUDENTS

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5972/5979

 \"\"

The problem of Social Competence is more evidently reflected in the educational field because the relationship in the classrooms is the prototype of ex-classroom relations. The socially awkward child is likely to misrespond to teacher as well as to other children. Dropping out of school is a particular risk of children who are socially rejected. These problems are universal because the way a child handles relationship in school years definitely reflect the way he would handle the relationship in his adult hood. In this study investigators try to find the level of Social Competence among Residential and Non Residential School Tribal Students. For that researchers selected 137 Residential and 127 Non Residential (total=260) school Tribal Students. Data collected by using Social Competence Scale developed and standardized by investigators. Results show that both Residential and Non Residential School Tribal Students posses average level of Social Competence. The level of Social Competence is high among Residential School Tribal Students.

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5980/5987

 Values are the guidelines which give meaning to our life and lead to the development of an integrated personality and character development (Sw. Tathagatananda, 2012). The aim of the present study was to identify, select and prioritize the values to be imparted to children with intellectual disability in order to promote harmonious growth of social, practical and conceptual skills among them. The study also makes an attempt to understand the meaning of some common core values and the justification behind selecting such values according to the views of the target group comprising of educators (N=100) and parents (N=100) using specially designed research tools. The findings reveal the selection of values such as cleanliness, decision making skills, courtesy, kindness and team spirit among others, selected from among 81 values listed under NCERT (1981; 2000) as some of the basic core values and skills which needs to be developed among children with special educational needs especially those with intellectual disability.

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 5988/5999

 therefore India is trying its best to educate its citizens as only education has the power to enlightened the people and take them out from darkness of illiteracy to the light of knowledge. India is a developing nation and dreams to become to a developed nation and this will be possible only if each and every citizen is educated and contributes towards the nation’s development by putting forward innovative ideas. To achieve 100% literacy, it is important to teach the marginalized section of the society. There are many children from this section of society who are first time learners. So, to help them and to encourage them, Government of India as well as State Governments has started several schemes. One scheme is the opening of residential schools in all the districts of the country. Government extends residential schools facilities to poor and rural students so that they can be provided education at par with the general students. For this purpose, Government of Karnataka has constituted a society called the Karnataka Residential Educational Institutional Society on October 1999. The main purpose behind the establishment of residential schools is to identify talented students belonging to the rural and poor background and provide them free education to help them in higher studies and bring them in main stream of society. The objective of this paper is to study the total enrollment and total number of boys and girls studying in residential schools run by State Government in Belagavi District of Karnataka State. This study is done by descriptive-survey method. The 35 Residential schools information is included in this paper. Investigators personally went and collected data from Social Welfare Department, Tribal Welfare Department and Minority Welfare Department. The data was analyzed and interpreted. The finding shows that the enrollment in the Residential Schools is increasing year by year. Another important finding is that the enrollment of boys is more than girls.

THE EFFECT OF HYDROGEN CONCENTRATION ON REFRACTIVE INDEX AND OPTICAL GAP IN HYDROGENATED AMORPHOUS SILICON

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6038/6046

 The optical properties of a-Si:H have been measured by several workers but there has been no suitable model to explain these results. A quantitative model for the incorporation of hydrogen in a-Si:H network to introduce hydrogen dependency of the optical properties has been developed. The concept of bond polarizabilities has been used to compute refractive index of a-Si:H as a function of hydrogen concentration. The results obtained have been compared with recent experimental results and the discrepancy has been explained. It has been found that the optical gap (Eg) increases with the increase of hydrogen concentration (CH). The results have been found to be consistent with the recent experimental results. Other results have also been compared and a theoretical relation Eg = 1.5 + 1.2 CH is thus obtained which corresponds reasonably well with the experimental results.

FEAR OF FAILURE AND OVERCOMING

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6047/6049

 You cannot be afraid to fail in competitive sports. If you are afraid of failure you are never going to reach your peak potential in your particular sport. You will only be average. To be the best or to win, you have to fail and make mistakes first. This paper will describe why it is important to not be afraid of failure. And how to overcome with it. You have to realize that you are going to make mistakes. You cannot be afraid of failure if you want to succeed. Everyone has failed from time to time in their sport. You have to have the attitude if I fail one day, everything is going to be fine. (Walters,2015) In order to succeed in whatever sport you are involved in, you have to come to the realization that you are never going to be perfect. As human beings, we are not meant to be perfect. We are expected to make mistakes.

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6050/6059

 \"\"

The HR function now holds a strategic role within the various organizational structures of the global economy, the proof of this being the endless debates on Human Resources issues between decision makers, leaders, employees and trade unions, not to mention the spectacular development of this discipline within universities and business schools all over the world. Hence we would expect there to be a direct link between this evolution of the function, the investment in human capital and the benefits generated in the development of the companies’ performance. The purpose of employee welfare is to bring about the development of the whole personality of the workers to make a better workforce. The very logic behind providing welfare schemes is to create efficient, healthy, loyal and satisfied labour force for the organization. The purpose of providing such facilities is to make their work life better and also to raise their standard of living. Hence, this article aims to highlight the practice of Human Resources Management in the developing economies and to define the effect of welfare programs on work incentives and the labour supply in developing countries by giving reference to a concrete case study and its results in the field of employee welfare and to what extent it shapes out the job satisfaction of the employees.

PARTICIPATIVE MANAGEMENT – A NEW DIMENSION IN MANAGING HUMAN RESOURCES ISSUES

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6072/6076

 \"\"

The role of Human resources is changing as the result of globalization, rapid real-time technological development and progress, and changes in the expectations of the stakeholders among others. Operating human resources across geographic and cultural boundaries can often prove difficult for the Human resource function. Nonetheless, with the widespread use of technology, the ability to communicate with anyone around the world and access to new and varied markets, international and diversified people issues are important to understand and be addressed. The new emerging global era has brought in various changes in the way business and industry view, manage and run their operations. In today’s globalised corporate world, the only standard constant is change – fundamentally when it comes to the human resources function and its modalities. This is a conceptual paper on participative management ideology with an entrepreneurial mind-set.

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6103/6118

 The teaching practice is designed to smooth the transition from teacher to student. At the same time the teaching practice assignment gives the teachers training institutions an opportunity to evaluate the students teaching capabilities. It is one of the most important components of the teacher-training program. It is an opportunity for student teachers to put their theoretical studies into practice. There may be some inconsistencies between what has been learned in college or university and the actual situation in the classroom. The teaching practice exercise should help student teachers to integrate theory and practice. It is the responsibility of teacher education institutions to provide such learning experiences to student teachers that they may be able to identity, select and innovate organize such learning experiences which may develop competence in the student teachers to teach the course of their specialization on the one hand and recreational activities and social useful production work on the other hand.

ONE NATION, ONE ELECTION IN INDIA

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6119/6131

 With a view to cleanse the political funding and decriminalize politics, the Election Commission (EC) is working towards a comprehensive review of the election laws. Former Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi on 7th September,2016 said that the poll panel is eagerly awaiting government\'s response on its slew of proposals to decriminalize politics and cleanse political funding.\"\"One Nation, One Election is a proposed electoral reform in India. It has been proposed to hold a single election for both Lok Sabha and States instead of separate and continuous elections. "Why PM Modi’s idea of ‘One Nation, One Election’ may not work"? (The Financial Express, 7 September 2016)1. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s idea of holding simultaneous elections in the country may be desirable but it may not work in a country as vast and diverse as India, according to experts. Recently in an interview to a news channel, PM Modi had said too many elections in the country were coming in the way of the development of the country. Noting that the country is trapped in the cycle of elections, “It is time to take it out of this cycle. It is time to stop connecting everything with politics.”

Keywords: Cleanse the political funding, decriminalize, Election Commission, Narendra Modi etc.

DATA WAREHOUSE- A KEY TO MANAGEMENT DECISIONS

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6138/6146

 A data warehouse is a subject-oriented, integrated, time-variant, non-volatile collection of data in support of management\'s decision making process. Data warehousing is the data management and analysis technology. Data in the data warehouse is preprocessed and presented such that it facilitates the cross functional monitoring and assessment of the overall direction of the organization. Thus, it is the hub for an intelligent management decision support. Successful implementation of a data warehouse requires a high-performance, scale able combination of hardware and software, which can integrate easily with existing systems, so that users can use data warehouse to improve their decision-making. A data warehouse is incomplete until it provides the exploitation tools that enable end users to view analyze and report on data in ways that support their decision-making. Data marts, data mining, data modeling and metadata are some other important concepts attached with data warehousing, the knowledge of which helps to a great extent in data warehouse implementation. Business intelligence data warehouse is the combination of two terms frequently used in the data mining and analysis field. When used together, vendors are trying to emphasize that they offer more services than just data warehousing alone. Because business intelligence can encapsulate a wide variety of services and tools, combining the terms into business intelligence data warehouse reflects that the vendor offers everything an organization needs, including the basics of data warehousing. Many organizations prefer to purchase business intelligence tools and data warehousing as a combined business intelligence data warehouse system in order to increase the efficiency of the integrated system.  The key advantages of using a Data warehouse business  intelligence system is that it makes it much simpler to analyze and report on the information extracted from the data entered into the system. In the cleansing stage of the data warehousing process, all inconstancies in the data are determined and taken care of before the data enters the ETL stage. The effectiveness of the data warehouse application intensifies especially when the operational data resides in distributed, non-homogenous systems and replace manual data gathering and reconciliation procedures. Therefore, data warehousing can be useful to not only commercial sectors but also to sectors like government, health care, insurance, manufacturing, finance, distribution, education The goal of a data warehouse application in an organization is to increase the effectiveness of the Decision-making and direction setting process. Data in the data warehouse is preprocessed and presented such that it facilitates the cross functional monitoring and assessment of the overall direction of the organization. Thus, it is the hub for an intelligent management decision support. A data warehouse is incomplete until it provides the exploitation tools that enable end users to view analyze and report on data in ways that support their decision-making. The aim of the paper is to generate the knowledge of data warehousing concept and its advantages in the era of globalization. To study the structure and application of data warehousing. Acquiring right information at the right time from the huge ocean of data is becoming difficult day by day. Data warehouse helps to convert the information overload in to meaningful strategic information. It is very useful to overcome the limitation of traditional tools by displaying different dimensions as required. Thus, a well defined and implemented data warehouse can be used to understand trends and make better forecasting decisions, bring better products to market in a more timely manner and analyze daily information and make quick decisions that can significantly affect the organization’s performance. In this paper I have tried to cover all advantages of data warehousing related to management decision making and hindrances in the usage of business intelligence data warehousing.

SMALL STATES AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6178/6188

 Historically, major powers dominated the world politics and formed international system according to their interest and small states had a nominal identity with limited influence and power. However, international system has been experiencing changes since the Second World War.     Because, large number of small states have emerged in world politics. The small states have been playing significant role in regional as well international organizations. Although, major powers have been dominating the international organizations including UN but their numbers of representation and role cannot be ignored. They have entered various regional and international organizations and made alliances with other states to fulfil their goals in regional and international area. Therefore, the influence of small states have been increasing in number of crisis in international politics. Now, small states have more influence and role in international organizations than before the history. But, they are still facing the several challenges for their development and position in world politics. The main aim of this paper is to examine the position and role of small states and what are the challenges facing by small states in organizations?

ECLECTICISM IN PEDAGOGY OF MATHEMATICS : AMALGAMATION OF I.C.T. & AVANT-GARDISM IN TEACHING OF MATHEMATICS AT SCHOOL LEVEL

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6203/6228

Mathematics has aptly been called the Queen of Sciences. Its ubiquity can be easily traced in every walk of life. It is an integral part of school curriculum. In developed countries, innovative methods and techniques are being adopted as a supplement in transacting mathematics curriculum in the wake of paradigm shifts in Pedagogy of Mathematics at school level. It is however a matter of regret that despite its ubiquity and utility in daily life, mathematics is not being taught in its true spirit in our country. Logical thinking, spirit of enquiry, faculty of reasoning, scientific attitude etc. are not emphasized. Adoption of ICT and Avant-Gardism in Pedagogy of Mathematics is in a nascent phase in our country. The present paper discusses the pedagogy of mathematics in the context of Eclecticism besides giving valuable suggestions pertaining to the use of same in the field of Teaching and Pre-service Teacher Education programme.

Keywords: Avant-Gardism, Eclecticism, Pedagogy, ICT.

EFFECTIVENESS OF MULTI-SENSORY APPROACH IN LEARNING BOTANY AMONG THE STUDENTS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENT

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6242/6254

 \"\"

Students with visual impairment (SWVI) due to loss of visual perception demand for stimulation of remaining senses. Multi-sensory approach conveys passing information through senses like touch and movement—called tactile and kinesthetic elements—as well as sight and hearing. Since, Science especially Botany heavily depends on visual instruction; students with visual impairment may face hitches in constructing abstract concept as well as the practical knowledge. In rudimentary level, the SWVI need to use their remaining senses like olfactory, gustatory etc. for better understanding of the concept of Botany and which is easily available around them. Current study was taken up with the objective to find out the effectiveness of multi-sensory approach in learning Botany among the students with visual impairment. Single subject pre test-post test control group design has been adopted by using experimental method at Hoogly district, West Bengal. Sample of 20 SWVI were selected from various schools through purposive sampling method. An observation schedule developed by the researcher was used to collect relevant data from the samples. The collected data was analysed quantitatively and qualitatively and the results of the study show that multi-sensory approach has a significant impact on the learning of Botany concepts among students with visual impairment. The study suggests initiating use of multi-sensory approach which encourages the development and integration of all remaining senses in enhancing perceptions and concepts.

Keywords: Students with visual impairment (SWVI), Multi-sensory approach, Botany.

Learners also need to have awareness and control of their cognition and this is called Metacognition. The label Metacognition was given by American psychologist John Flavell (1976). Metacognition refers to higher order thinking which involves active control over the cognitive processes engaged in learning. Activities such as planning how to approach a given learning task, monitoring comprehension, and evaluating progress toward the completion of a task are metacognitive in nature. Since adults are largely self determining, therefore they can develop metacognitive skills which are an essential element in any program intended to increase their autonomy. With this reference researcher analyse metacognitive awareness skills among B.Ed. Student teachers.

DEVELOPING METACOGNITIVE KNOWLEDGE SKILL AMONG STUDENT TEACHERS THROUGH THE ACTIVITIES

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6379/6389

 Learning depends on the effective use of cognitive process such as memory and attention, the activation of relevant background knowledge and the deployment of cognitive strategies to achieve particular goals. To ensure that the basic processes are used effectively that the activated knowledge is indeed relevant and the appropriate strategies are being organized. The task category of metacognitive knowledge included all the information about a proposed task that is available to a person (Flavell, 1979). This knowledge guides the individual in the management of a task, and provides information about the degree of success that he is likely to produce. Lesson planning and teaching is the task for student teachers. ‘How to start thinking on given topic for teaching purpose and how to process on the knowledge?’ is the major question which is frequently asked by student teachers. So, purpose of the paper is to suggest and implement the activities for developing metacognitive knowledge skill among student teachers.

STUDY OF GENDER DIFFERENCE IN CAREER MATURITY OF RURAL AND URBAN STUDENTS

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6390/6401

 \"\"

Career maturity is reflected by an individual’s mature behavior in coping with the tasks of career development, compared with that of others dealing with the same tasks (Super & Bohn, 1970). It is generally accepted as comprising both cognitive and affective components. The cognitive component is consisted of decision-making skills; the affective component includes attitudes toward the career decision-making process. This study examined the gender difference in career maturity of rural and urban students. Sample consisted of 640 10th class students [320 Boys: 160 rural (80 Muslim and 80 non-Muslim) & 160 urban (80 Muslim and 80 non-Muslim) and 320 Girls: 160 rural (80 Muslim and 80 non-Muslim) & 160 urban (80 Muslim and 80 non-Muslim)] selected from government high schools of Darbhanga City. Tool for collecting the data included Crites’ Career Maturity Inventory. Statistical analyses were performed using descriptive and inferential statistics to study the gender difference between students (boys & girls; rural & urban and Muslim & Non-Muslim) on the measure of career maturity. The findings of the study revealed that hypotheses H1, H2, H3, H7 and H9 are fully accepted while hypotheses H4, H5, H6 and H8 are partially accepted. The present findings suggest that research needs to be complemented by examining differences in the between-group experiences that families from various social status and locale are able to provide for their children. That is, what are the experiences and conditions that families from certain groups provide that allow their children’s aspirations to be expanded into higher vocational and career attainment.

INDIVIDUAL MODERNITY AS LONG-TERM GOAL OF SCHOOLING: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF INDIAN BOARD TYPES

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6403/6413

 This research was undertaken to compare individual modernity as a measure of school effectiveness among students coming from schools with different Board affiliations. School effectiveness was also evaluated by estimating the residual outcome of individual modernity after partialling out socio-economic status and prior academic achievement. Of 997 students studied (558 girls, 439 boys), 66.4% were from the SSC Board, 19.7% from ICSE, 10.5% from CBSE and 3.4% from IGCSE; 53.6% were from Science faculty, 17.1% from Commerce and 29.4% from Arts. The mean raw individual modernity score was lower in schools affiliated to the SSC Board as compared to those affiliated to the ICSE Board. However, when socio-economic status was partialled out, the mean residual individual modernity score was lowest in schools from the IGCSE Board. When academic achievement was partialled out, the mean residual individual modernity score was higher in schools from the ICSE Board as compared to those from the SSC and IGCSE Boards. School type had minimal effect on individual modernity score, and this was not affected by socio-economic status and academic achievement.

EMOTIONAL INSIGHTS IN STUDENTS (PART 1) OVERCOMING FEARS

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6428/6432

 A study was undertaken to enhance the basic understanding of creation of fear and its control in the students. The results showed that fear is instinctive and its knowledge is essential to protect from dangers. Fear which  improves is healthy while the one which harms, is unhealthy. Fear is a function of the mind recording the effects of external environment in the form of emotions. We are, in fact, beyond emotional effects but by ignorance we do get affected  when we identify with them. The harmful  effects of fear can be overcome if we do not identify ourselves with it and act just as a witness. The acceptance of fear, without any judgement , acts as an  internal  alchemy. Deep breathing and stretching of joints and muscles can aid in alleviating the negative effects of fear. Besides, the value of silence and visualization of successful completion of examination in overcoming  it is also stressed.

EMOTIONAL INSIGHTS INTO THE STUDENTS MIND: PART 2 OVERCOMING ANGER

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6433/6438

A study was undertaken to enhance the basics of understanding of anger development and its control in the students. The students are volatile in nature, prone to even slight provocation. Anger is caused when their ego is hurt or when their expectations are not met. One must accept that the fault as well as solution to anger lies with the students, suffering from it. A solution to this lies in following a ‘being approach’, consisting of their identification first as spiritual beings and later as doing beings. Simultaneously, one should maintain separateness from anger and should observe it without any abhorrence or attachment . When in anger, stop arguing but instead try to take cold water and resort to shakti mudra as anger is nothing but fire and is cooled down by water. Besides, one should stop blaming and maintaining vindictiveness against others who one thinks is responsible for hurting them. Rather, one should thank them as they are settling their past causes (accounts). Lastly, one should give peace to others to pacify anger as one cannot get peace when he/she throws anger at others.

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6494/6501

The works of T.S. Eliot are frequently interpreted in terms of the contemporary time-spirit as he is influenced by his time and its scenario. His poems are the analysis of crisis and disillusionment. He was extremely miserable with the plight of his generation. Thus, Eliot has been regarded as one giving voice to the modern spirit of weariness and disillusionment. His poems show the shadow of time-spirit, the predicament of modern man, the futility and misery of modern existence. In short, it can be said that his poems are the depiction of contemporary moods, which depict the plight of a soul which is caught in a state of irremediable crisis in age of anxiety. Decadence and various types of mental diseases were the outcome these crises and disillusionment that are visible in his poems. The researcher has attempted to discuss the symptoms of decadence and mental illness which are the outcomes of disillusionment with reference to his epoch-making poem: The Love Songs of J. Alfred Prufrock. In this poem, Eliot presents the despair and passivity of a middle-aged man, J. Alfred Prufrock who has become a victim of mental disorder, restlessness, insecurity, sterility and hopelessness of modern life.

VOICE OF RESISTANCE AS REFLECTED IN THE SELECTED GUJARATI DALIT POETRY

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6502/6512

In this research paper, the researcher has made a detailed study of the selected Gujarati Dalit poetry. The researcher has explored the Dalits’ voice of protest against the unjust and discriminative pressures they have been living for ages through the selected poems. A close study of their poetry shows that the poets wish to create revolution in the society where they are marginalized. These poets are having some questions haunting in his mind: if they all are the children of the same God, then why are they subject to discrimination on the basis of certain man-made rules?  Why is it that the Dalit people are branded as untouchables if they really belong to the same culture? Why is it that they are not allowed into the temples for worship if they belonged to the same religion? If they are people belonging to one nation, one culture, one religion, one political system, then why are some denied their share of self-respect? In order to get remedy of this, several Gujarati Dalit poets have put across their point of protest through their poems. Their poetry is a voice of protest against this unjust system.

BRAIN BASED LEARNING AND IT’S IMPLICATIONS FOR ONLINE AND MOBILE TECHNOLOGIES LEARNING

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6547/6552

Brain-based learning has devised a new discipline it is a comprehensive approach to instruction using current research from neuroscience. Brain-based education stresses how the brain learns naturally and is based on what we currently know about the actual structure and function of the human brain at various developmental stages. Latest neural research shows that educational techniques that are brain friendly provide a biologically driven framework for creating effective instruction.  Issues concerning student learning involve how they accept, retain and process information delivered in a course. This paper briefly defines and describes brain-based learning, a theory that is under investigation in higher education, and offers suggestions on how that theory may be implemented in the delivery of information and facilitation of online and Mobile Instruction in higher education.

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION: ISSUES AND CHALLENGES

Jul-Aug,2017, Vol - 4/35, Page - 6563/6571

One of the greatest problems the world is facing today is the growing number of persons who are excluded from the meaningful partnership in the economic, social, political and cultural life of their communities. Such a society is neither efficient nor safe. Inclusive education can be seen as a stepping stone for a future inclusive society and it is a process of addressing and responding to the diverse needs of all children, youth and adults through increasing participation in learning, cultures and communities and reducing the exclusion within and from education. The growing in public awareness, the achievement in the technological advancement and the improved legislation in some countries have opened the way for better provision of education to children with disabilities. The integration of students with disabilities into the regular educational setting as regular class students has become the concern of educators, governments, and the society at large. But numerous factors continue to affect and regulate the development of inclusive education in India. A limited understanding of the concept disability, negative attitudes towards persons with disabilities and a hardened resistance to change are the major barriers impeding inclusive education. The present paper tries to highlight the scenario of inclusive education in India along with policies, legal framework and the role of teachers in inclusive setting. The study concludes that the implementation of inclusive education requires dedication and willingness on part of all stakeholders especially educators.
