AN IMPACT OF INFLATION AND EXCHANGE RATE ON STOCK RETURNS: EVIDENCE FROM INDIA

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8232/8239

 The study investigates the existence of relationship between Indian stock market and two macro economic variables namely, inflation and exchange rate. It covers a data period from April 2011 to March 2017. Multivariate Regression Model has been employed to investigate the relationship between BSE Sensex returns as dependent variable, and macro economic variables namely inflation (CPI) and exchange rate (USD- INR) as independent variables. Multicollinearity between independent variables has been tested by calculating Variance Inflation Factor and Tolerance statistics. Both the tests paved the way for application of multivariate regression as multicollinearity among independent variables is not found.  The Results of multivariate regression show evidence of positive significant relationship between inflation and stock returns and insignificant relationship between exchange rate and stock returns in India. The findings suggest that Indian Stock Market is driven by inflation. 
Keywords: Stock returns, Inflation, Exchange rate

ACCULTURATIVE STRESS AMONG INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS IN RELATION TO GENDER, AGE AND FAMILY INCOME

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8268/8279

 In recent times, India has become one of the important centers of education for international students. Many students from different parts of world are now enrolled in Indian universities and colleges. The international students’ presence in our institutions helps to promote culture & international understanding among these students.  As the number of international students increase, so is the number of acculturative stress cases. International students not only face with problems similar to those of all university students, but they have the added pressures associated with life in a new environment, learning the new language and culture. The combination of these stresses reduces the international student\'s ability to perform. The earlier researches on acculturation suggested that an individual can regain his/her ability to function better by increasing his/her understanding of the new environment\'s language and culture. Additionally, the research indicated that if they receive information and support, international students may adjust more quickly and easily (Chae, 2014, Khan, 2016). It, therefore, becomes need of time to find methods for helping international students to deal with stress. The present study was initiated in response to the growing concern about the acculturative stress experienced by international students.   The objectives of present study were to study the level of acculturative stress among international students in relation to gender, age and family income. For this researcher developed and validated the acculturative stress scale. The acculturative stress level of international undergraduate studying in one of university of union territory Chandigarh was measured. It was found that there was significant difference in the level of acculturative stress in relation to gender and family income. There was no significant difference in the level of acculturative stress in relation to age.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SOCIO-ECONOMIC CLASS AND THE LEVEL OF POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER RESULTING FROM THE 2007/2008 POST ELECTION VIOLENCE AMONG PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN KIBERA AND KAYOLE SETTLEMENTS, NAIROBI

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8312/8322

 This study sought to determine whether there was any relationship between socio-economic class and the level of posttraumatic stress disorder resulting from the post election violence among primary school children in Kenya. The target population included all the standard seven pupils in six primary schools in Kibera and Kayole settlements. A proportionate random sample of 164 pupils in each location was selected. Three instruments were used. They were: Personal Experiences During Post Election Violence, Psychological Stability Scale, and Post Traumatic Experience Psychological Scale. The results showed that there was no significant difference between pupils of different socioeconomic status in levels of PTSD. It is recommended that children from all levels of socioeconomic status require post-violence services appropriate to their age, the scope and nature of the disaster, and their immediate circumstances. They should be provided with enhanced parent-teacher communications and there be available school psychologists and counselors trained in family intervention within the school setting. These are basic requirements for successful intervention and treatment of childhood posttraumatic stress disorder. The establishment of school-based programs from early childhood onward that teach conflict resolution, emotional literacy, and anger management skills is also desirable.
Keywords: Violence, Trauma, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, socioeconomic Status, Pupils

TEACHERS PERSPECTIVE ON COMMUNICATION SKILLS AMONG ENGINEERING STUDENTS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8330/8343

 Communication skills among graduating students are seen as a key performance indicator to measure the success of any individual in the world of work in many countries in the region. Taking into account graduating students competing for job positions with a global workforce, it would be their Communication skills proficiency that would be tested to the maximum, as English is the most widely spoken languages in the world at present.  An effective communication, act as a bridge to fulfil the gap between world of study and world of work and thereby make passouts readily acceptable to the industry. The institution offering educational programs will have to integrate Communication skills as an integrated component to prepare young students for future employment (ABET, 2000). 
An attempt is made in this paper to investigate the level of communication skills among students. Teachers’ views were sought on Communication skills via a self-administered questionnaire. It assessed four core elements in Communication skills, including listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. The paper shares the outcomes of this survey. 
Keywords: Communication Skills, Education, Classroom Practices

PARALLEL PLIGHTS: ECOCIDE AND GENOCIDE IN JACK DAVIS’ “FOREST GIANT”

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8344/8349

 To understand the culture of a nation one must look from within that culture. Australian Aboriginal literature helps one to understand this basic premise of anthropology. An understanding of aboriginal literature produced in Australia helps to understand and appreciate the culture of the indigenous people while simultaneously they also reveal the changes the nation has undergone since colonization. They are not produced by outsiders or observers but by those who have lived through these experiences and the creative act of writing becomes an effort to impart an understanding and awareness of the experiences of the indigenous people.  Immigrant people have always altered the life of the autochthonous people   and a major part of Australian Aboriginal poetry deals with it. Parallel patterning of events consequential to colonization can be found in the history of every nation subjugated by invaders. Jack Davis’  “Forest Giant” is a short poem which details within its ambit the destruction of the environment or ecocide and the decline in the population of the aboriginals due to genocide. The yoking of cultural and environmental history serves to understand the complementary perspectives of aboriginal life and environmental history of the nation.
Keywords: Ecocide, genocide, environmental history, Dreamtime, animism, Nyoongar, colonization, aboriginal, logging.

DEVELOPMENT OF SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE AND SELF-IDENTITY AMONG ADOLESCENTS: A STUDY OF GENDER DIFFERENCE

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8350/8359

 Self-identity is an important life skill of adolescents. Researchers have observed that the skill of reflecting on the experiences of life, which is related to one’s spiritual intelligence, is helpful in the development of positive self-identity. Hence, the present research was carried out to understand the development of spiritual intelligence and self-identity among adolescent boys and girls and thereby examine the mediating role of spiritual intelligence in the development of self-identity. Participants in the study were 360 college students in equal numbers from boys and girls belonging to early, middle, and late adolescent period. Four-core abilities of spiritual intelligence namely; critical existential thinking, personal meaning production, transcendental awareness, and conscious state expansion were measured. Like-wise, personal, relational, social, and collective self-identities were measured. The results showed that girls are better than boys in the development of both spiritual intelligence and positive self-identity. Further, spiritual intelligence significantly and positively predicted each of the domains of self-identity.  
Keywords: adolescents, self-identity, Spiritual intelligence, mediating process

CROSS CULTURAL INTERVIEWING IN COMPARATIVE EDUCATION RESEARCH-A MEANS TO GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8360/8368

 Most of the conflicts, be it at local or international level, thrive on ignorance. The root cause of these disputes could be traced down to the belief of superiority of one over the other. It is through education that one can develop global understanding by getting to know of cultures other than ours. And for this, ‘if education is to contribute to the full realization of the individual, teachers and other educators remain key actors’ (UNESCO,2015, p.54). Cross cultural comparative studies can be one route towards developing our own capacities as educators entrusted with the task of illuminating young minds in our classrooms. The present paper aims to illustrate the role of cross cultural interviewing in comparative education research toward enhancing global understanding. It will demonstrate how a meaningful partnership between interviewer and interviewee in cross national and cross-cultural research in the field of teacher education enabled not only a comparative study of pre-service teacher education in an Indian and a Chinese university but led towards achievement of the one of the goals of education; ’developing an understanding of others and their history, traditions and spiritual values (UNESCO, 1996, p. 18).

EFFECT OF CONCEPT ATTAINMENT MODEL ON ACHIEVEMENT OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN PHYSICS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8369/8374

 Concept Attainment Model as a teaching strategy to teaching is concerned with the concept formation and concept attainment. Concept attainment is a process of finding out defining attributes of a given category. Concept Attainment Model helps to clarify ideas. This study was conducted to determine the effect of Concept Attainment Model on academic achievement of Secondary School Students in Physics by using experimental method. The sample of the study included 60 Class IX students. Purposive sampling technique was used to collect data. The students were divided into two groups (30 students in each group) i.e. experimental and control group on the basis of scores on intelligence test. The experimental group was taught through concept attainment model and the control group was taught by using traditional method (lecture method). After completion of teaching, a self-developed achievement test was administered on both the groups. For drawing out the result, t-test was used. The result showed that students exposed to concept attainment model possessed higher score than the students taught through traditional method.

CONSTRUCTION AND VALIDATION OF OCCUPATIONAL STRESS SCALE – (OSS)

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8375/8384

 Stress  at  work  resulting  from  increasing  complexities  of  work  and  its  divergent  demand, has become a prominent and pervading feature of the modern organizations.  The researchers  in the area of organizational psychology and  management have used  the term  job stress to denote employees’  mental  state aroused by  a  job  situation or a  combination   of   job   situations   perceived   as   presenting   excessive   and   divergent  demands. Stress is an unavoidable phenomenon in human life. Though the type of stress may differ but almost any aspect of life can lead to stress, be it lack of friends, lack of money, unemployment or even employment. Rapid industrialization, increasing urbanization and receding support over the last few decades have contributed to rise in stress level. So the investigations have decided to construct and validate a scale to measure the Occupational stress. According to the standardization procedure the framed 30 statements were finalized to 21 statements constituting the Occupational stress scale.
Keywords: Occupational stress, Higher secondary and School teachers.

THE PORTRAYAL OF INDIAN BACKDROP IN RUDYARD KIPLING’S KIM: A DIASPORIC PERSPECTIVE

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8385/8392

 The diasporic literature helps us in understanding various cultures in a broader perspective. Indian Diasporic writing seems a very significant set-up linking the entire world. The Indian Diaspora has attempted to bring astonishing realities located in the Indian rural culture. The European travelers and the orientalists have revitalized the varied culture of India and enriched the English literature through their literary work. Rudyard Kipling lived in India for some years, hence was fully acquainted with the people and entire way of life in India. Kim (1901) by Rudyard Kipling, is a remarkable novel which portrays diverse religions of India, its people and culture. The novel represents a multicolored picture of India viewing its indigenous spirit. It focuses on a life of Kim, a boy of Irish descent, who is orphaned and grows up as a native Indian.  Taking into consideration the various facets of the novel, it seems that Kipling generates the realistic portrayal of Indian life. He very honestly depicts the indigenous spirit of Indian backdrop through this novel.  This beautiful land itself remains the theme of novel. 
Keywords: diasporic literature, Indian culture and landscape, people, indigenous spirit, beliefs, spirituality, beautiful land.

LANGUAGE, LITERATURE AND SOCIETY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8393/8401

 The present paper examines the various perspectives of Language, Literature and Society and defines their apt relevance. The notion of language is being considered somewhat similar to life.  Likewise life, to define language adequately is rather an awkward exercise. Language is a natural human growth; to some extent mental as well as physical. It remains changing incessantly; hence the nature of language is dynamic. It always undergoes a process of development. Language is human in its characteristics since only human possess it. Though, animals possess a system of communication, but it is not developed accurately.  A child learns the language of the society which he lives in. The entire frame of culture and civilization fully depends upon language. Language is the means of communication among human beings through which human community grows and develops in this globe. The society cannot be thought of without language. It defines the approach of human behaviour. Language generates the thoughts and leads the entire frame of culture and civilization. All human beings are blessed with this precious gift.  The history of human development justifies the importance of language. It has brought the gradual development of human life from Stone Age to Modern Era.  In a literal sense, the word literature means ‘things made from letters’.  Literature is the source of human knowledge and the documentation of human experience. Literature helps to understand the world around us and preserves the morals of people.  Some of the great literary works like the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Bible are considered the treasure houses which provide society with the guiding principles of life. Literature and society are closely related to each other since literature is the mirror of society. Sometimes literature and society inspire and even influence to each other. The philosophical or social movements illustrated through narratives add deep insight into human knowledge. The literary works reflects the nature and spirit of particular time. While surveying history, one finds that the religious facets are incorporated in Medieval literature, whereas Renaissance reveals the advancement in the fields of art and science. Similarly, the Romantic Movement concentrated on the importance and creativity of the individual and Modernist literature represents the place of individual in an era of industrialization and the menace of nuclear annihilation.  
Keywords: Language, literature, society, dynamic, human development, communication, knowledge, culture, civilization

METACOGNITIVE AWARENESS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS: PERSPECTIVES OF AGE AND GENDER

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8402/8412

 The study examined the perspectives of age and gender on the development of metacognitive awareness of college students. Four hundred students including equal number of boys and girls in five age groups of 14 to 24 years were administered the Metacognitive Awareness Inventoryto measure their metacognitive knowledge, regulation and executive control. Each of these constructs was measured through its relevant skills. With respect to the nature of development, the results showed low, slow but consistent development of the skills across the span of 10 years of college life. The developments were also observed to follow the predicted sequence, i.e., metacognitive knowledge, followed by metacognitive regulation, and then, metacognitive control and execution. Some directions in the issue of gender difference were also observed that overall, girls are significantly better than boys in metacognitive knowledge while boys in metacognitive regulation. However, they did not show any difference in metacognitive control and execution, the supposed higher order skill of metacognitive awareness.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TREATMENT, INTELLIGENCE AND THEIR INTERACTION ON ACHIEVEMENT IN DIAGNOSTIC TEST OF CELL BIOLOGY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8430/8436

 Misconceptions are considered as a big obstacle in the path of the students’ life. If misconceptions were not removed in the early stages of a student life it can cause various learning difficulties in future. To promote an effective and meaningful learning there is an urgent need to identify such misconceptions from students’ mind and to rectify them or to prevent them from occurring in future. From the various investigations and review studies it is found that students’ of different ages possess misconceptions in cell biology. The present study was undertaken to study the effect of treatment, intelligence and their interaction on achievement in cell biology by considering pre - achievement in cell biology as a covariate. To study all these necessary factors first the students’ misconceptions was identified through a Two – Tier Diagnostic test (DTCB). The sample comprised of 191 students’ of IX class selected from the secondary schools of Phagwara city. On the basis of pre-achievement test a relation between the above mentioned factors were carried out to find out the correlation between them.
Keywords: Cell biology, Diagnostic test in cell biology (DTCB), Misconceptions, Intelligence, Raven’s Standard progressive matrices (RSPM), Group Embedded Figure Test (GEFT)

TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS: THE EMOTIONAL COMPONENTS OF STUDENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIP

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8491/8499

 The study examined the impact of perceived teacher effectiveness on the experienced emotion of primary school children. The sample comprised of 300 college student including boys and girls from different majors. The subjects were asked to remember their primary school years to respond to the questionnaires relating to their perception of an effective and an ineffective teacher and their experienced emotion in the classes of those teachers. The results showed that perceived effective teachers have significant impact on the experience of positive and constructive emotions of primary school children. On the other hand, although ineffective teachers significantly contributed to experience negative emotions, those are less influencing than the positive impact of effective teachers. Discriminant analysis pointed to 11 emotions in which effective teachers have significant discriminant power from ineffective teachers. Regression analyses pointed out that 39% of variances for perceived effectiveness of teachers are explained by 11 emotions. Likewise, 31% of the variances for perceived ineffectiveness of teachers were explained by 9 emotions. From these findings, it is derived that addressing students’ emotion in the classroom is one of the significant factors of teacher effectiveness. Primary school student responds to positive emotions more than negative emotions. 
Keywords: Experienced emotions, perceived teacher effectiveness, discriminant analyses

TYPES OF FOOD AND THE VALUE OF HEALTHY EATING ON WELL BEING: A STUDY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8500/8505

 A strong body means physical strength which has a positive impact on our personality and translates into a feeling of holistic well being.  Man needs three basic things for survival: food, shelter and clothing. Nutrition is important. Eating a balanced diet is vital for good health and well being. Food provides our body with energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals. These in turn help us to grow, live and function properly. Health is wealth goes a popular saying. We need a variety of food to provide the right amount of nutrients for gaining good physical and mental health (NHMRC).  Food is the source of all our bodily functions and directly affects our body and mind functions in every stage of life. Healthy food helps in disease prevention, maintenance of healthy weight, provides energy and impacts our quality of life (Sushant, 2015). The purpose of the present study is to understand the importance of good values of eating such as good eating habits, avoidance of junk food, maintenance of personal and environmental cleanliness, regular exercise and safety and their direct impact on personality development and overall well being. A detailed study was done of various secondary sources of data available on importance of food and its impact on overall well being, including a study of the Bhagwat Gita, which mentions various types of food desired by individuals according to their inherent tendencies. The findings from the study indicate that imbibing values of healthy eating such as eating healthy and hygienic food, eating food on time, doing regular exercise, following safety and security measures all have a direct impact on holistic well being. The personality also gets enhanced and a person feels good about himself and the world. Hence, there is a felt need to create awareness about healthy eating habits, need for regular sacrifice, maintenance of cleanliness and following safety measures among learners especially at the primary and secondary level thereby promoting holistic development for the youth. 
Keywords: values, food, Gita, well being

TAJIKISTAN RUSSIA RELATIONS IN EMERGING WORLD ORDER

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8576/8582

 The relation between Tajikistan and Russia has remained strong even after the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Both countries share a common perspective on various issues, such as, threat of religious fundamentalism, national separatism and cross-border terrorism which constitute the main threat to regional security, stability and development. So far as inter ethnic relation is concerned Tajikistan’s adoption of the Language Law in 1989 has slightly affected, Tajik-Russian relations. But the Tajik Government undertook some confidence building measures which included the protection of Russian speaking people’s interests by changing the language law and by granting dual citizenship to the Russian people. In the sphere of economy, though Tajik-Russian relation were badly disturbed because of the commercial and financial arrangements in Russia after the demise of the Soviet Union, still the inter regional economic links between the two countries remain. Both sides signed inter-state inter-governmental and inter-departmental documents regulating trade and economic cooperation between Tajikistan and Russia. So far as the strategic and security factor is concerned, Tajkistan totally depends upon Russia for maintaining peace and security in the region. Tajik Russia relationship is no longer based on ideological grounds, rather it is more practical and mutually beneficial in nature.

BORDERS- SHAPING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8593/8601

 The theorists in favour of open border assert the existing limitations on immigration in Western democracies are not reasonable. Like feudal barricades to mobility, they defend unjust honour. And, as it was witnessed, furthermost human beings do not prefer to move, they usually feel emotionally attached to their native land. They seek out to move out when life is very challenging where they are. The communitarian objections to this supposition come especially from Michael Walzer. He enunciates an approach to distributive ethics grounded on complex equality that is meticulously observant to the specific ways specific communities’ value goods. A renewed attention in borders and geography amongst theoreticians is giving upsurge to enquiries that are outside the scope of Walzer\'s system and disclose concepts at the geographic level that weaken his overall approach. This internal discrepancy deteriorates but does not eventually mark-down, Walzer\'s overall policy of distributive ethics. When standardised to permit for geographic meticulousness, Walzer\'s approach becomes even more valuable to critique a range of contemporary development movements.
Keywords: openborder, closed border, immigration, citizenship, alienage

MYTHS, FACTS, PRECAUTIONS AND TREATMENT BASED ON KNOWLEDGE QUESTIONNAIRE (KQ-18) REGARDING HIV/AIDS AMONG MARRIED AND NEVER MARRIED ADULTS (25-35 YEARS) IN MUMBAI & THANE

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8439/8451

 The lack of proper awareness and knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS may leave a large section of the population vulnerable to contract the disease. Correct knowledge and awareness regarding the disease is a general prerequisite for the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS. Inadequate knowledge, negative attitudes and risky practices are major hindrances to preventing the spread of HIV. The objective was to obtain the knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS on the basis of knowledge questionnaire (KQ-18) among married and never married men and women in Mumbai and Thane district of age 25-35 years. The sample consisted of 120 participants (30 married men, 30 married women, 30 never married men, and 30 never married women) ages 25-35 years. The tool was divided into 2 categories a) Proforma [18 introductory questions, such as gender family type] and b) Knowledge questionnaire [standardized tool of knowledge questionnaire (KQ-18) comprising of 18 items]. Results revealed that participants had high knowledge about symptoms i.e., having sex with more than one partner can increase person’s chance of being affected with HIV; treatment i.e., there is a vaccine that can stop adults from getting HIV, precaution i.e., a person can get HIV by sitting in a hot tub or a swimming pool with a person who has HIV. Astonishingly, participants had a very low knowledge about women getting HIV if she has anal sex with a man, taking a test for HIV one week after having sex will tell a person if she or he has HIV and a natural skin condom works better against HIV than does a latex condom in terms of symptoms, treatment and precautions respectively. These research findings led us to believe that there is a need to impart knowledge in relation to HIV/AIDS.

EMPHASIZING THE USE OF LITERATURE AS AN EFFECTUAL TECHNIQUE FOR TEACHING LANGUAGE: A STUDY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8482/8490

 This paper aims at emphasizing the use of literature as an effectual technique for teaching both basic language skills (i.e. reading, writing, listening and speaking) and language areas (i.e. and vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation). Reasons for using literary texts in foreign language that is English and the main criteria for selecting apposite literary texts in foreign language classes are hassled as the only language in which all subjects travel is English.  Moreover the teaching of language skill’s benefits is obtained through altered genres of literature (i.e. poetry, short fiction, drama and novel). Literature in a language classroom provides adequate space for the learners to observe, validate and mirror themselves. The purpose of using literature in a language classroom is to formulate the class interactive and it can be assured that an interactive class can apparently develop communicative competence of the learners and remain an enduring impact on their mind. Such a class can develop the decisive thinking abilities of the learners and at the same time preserve a learner centre environment. The use of literature is to focus on the positive contributions of a literary text as it exposes the learner to different registers, types of language use. 
Literature  plays  an  important  role  in  the  English  programs  of  many  non-English speaking  countries.  However, there are some problems encountered by language teachers within the area of teaching English through literature. First, there are very few  pedagogically-designed  suitable  materials  that  can  be  used  by  language teachers in a language classroom. Second, there is a lack of groundwork in the area of literature teaching in TESL / TEFL programs. Third, there is the nonexistence of clear-cut objectives defining the role of literature in ESL /EFL. The teacher has a significant role in teaching English through literature. Literature is not only a device for developing the written and oral skills of the students in the intention language but also is a window opening into the culture of the target language, building up a cultural proficiency in students.
Keywords: apparently, competence, emphasizing, pedagogically, proficiency.

RURAL DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8509/8516

 Indian society is known as a rural society. Most of the Indian population resides in rural area. So the development of India means the development of this rural area. And the development of rural area means the development of all types of depressed, oppressed, poor and downtrodden groups of the society. According to 2001 census in India 8.2 percent and in Maharashtra around 8.9 percent of population belongs to Scheduled Tribes and 87.3 per cent of the ST population of Maharashtra is residing in the rural areas. This society is politically, socially and economically backward compare to other social groups of the society. So you should think first about this big group for the rural development. In this manner policy maker establishes an administrative setup for rural areas. Further they introduce various committees for strengthening rural development. But the 73rd constitutional amendment is the milestone in this regards. For particular the development of tribal areas (Fifth Scheduled Areas according to the Constitution of India) Panchayats Extension to the Scheduled Areas Act, 1996 (PESA) passed in 1996. According to PESA act ‘management’ of natural resources transferred to the local society. But there is a problem of its proper implementation.  This paper delves in some detail into the manner in which the States’ have subverted the mandate of the Central Legislation through carefully using the wordings in law to make the implementation vague and ineffective especially in the context of ‘community resources’ in scheduled areas. This is comparative study of implementation of PESA Act in various states in India.

STRENGTHENING TRIBAL PANCHAYATS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8517/8525

 In India the Panchayats (extension to the Scheduled Areas) Act, 1996 (PESA Act 1996) was enacted on 24 December 1996. This act is enacted particularly for scheduled areas. Scheduled Areas are those, which are under the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution of India where the tribal populations are predominant. According to PESA act ‘management’ of natural resources transferred to the local society. 
India is famous for its natural resources being one of the 12 mega-diversity countries in the world.(DebnathDeboshish, 2010)The Indian civilization is a primary civilization, known as Indus civilization, which has been described by Rabindranath Tagore as Tapavan civilization, meaning the very civilization grew in forest, was developed by its indigenous people. India’s forest dwelling people are known as Vanabasi or Vanyajati as well as ‘the Scheduled Tribe’ (a constitutional category) as their association with the forest from time immemorial.
This paper deals with the problem of climate change and its effects on the human society. It also tries to bring out the importance of an organized and decentralized governance mechanism to manage them. The paper elaborates how the Tribal Panchayats can play a meaningful role in managing climate change through forest management.
Climate change will be pivotal in redefining development in the twenty-first century. Nations, societies, communities, and households respond to the impact of climate changes and variability to which the world has already been committed.  In many instances, climate change is a determinant factor in the growth, equity, and sustainability of society at large. Given the potential magnitude of impending changes in institutional and social relationships, the gaps in current knowledge about the role of institutions in adapting to climate change is remarkably large.   This review focuses on the role of local institutions in adapting to climate change.

CHANGING PATTERN OF LAND USE AND ITS IMPACT ON AGRICULTURE: A CASE STUDY OF MYSORE DISTRICT

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8569/8586

 Land is a scarce resource, whose supply is fixed for all practical purposes at the same time. The demand for land for various competing purposes is continuously increasing with the increase in human population and economic growth. Land use pattern at any given time is determined by several factors including size of human and livestock population, the demand pattern, the technology in use, the cultural traditions, the location and capability of land, institutional factors like ownership pattern and rights and state regulation. The land use pattern besides having economic implications has also important ecological dimensions, which if ignored can have disastrous consequence. The land is the sole resources of sustenance mankind supporting the planed, animal and human life for providing the food, and shelter. Man utilizes land for various purposes like agriculture of urban development, settlement industrial activities etc.. The growing pressure population coupled increasing varieties of demands being made on the land resource have brought extra pressure on the land resource all over the country. In this paper shows that non agriculture land increase from 8.9% to 11%, and current fallow land increase from 3.2% to 6 % of total area, and also cultivable waste land decrease from 4 % to 3% ,

CHANGING TRENDS OF AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT AND ITS EFFECT ON ENVIRONMENT OF UTTARAKHAND HILLS (A CHALLENGE)

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8608/8622

 Agricultural development has been sluggish, and has failed to keep pace with population growth. In recent years the yields of major food crops in Uttarakhand have been lower than other South Asian countries and Uttarakhand is now dependent on food imports. Land holding size per family and field sizes has both decreased markedly during recent years. If hill regions are considered independently, all cereal crops yields have stagnated in the last 30 years and gains in production that have been made. Crop productivity in the hills has declined due to land degradation. Agricultural development has been sluggish, and has failed to keep pace with population growth.

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8623/8635

 The construction industry forms an integral part of the Indian economy and a conduit for a substantial part of its development investment, is poised for growth on account of industrialization, urbanization, economic development.  The sector is labour-intensive and, including indirect jobs, provides employment to millions of people. The construction sector is also the second largest employer in the country following agriculture. The industry comprises of highly specified tasks, and for each task and stage, a different contractor is engaged and under each contractor different labourers are working. All construction labourers are causal workers. Unskilled labour is unaware of his principal employer as there is a chain of contractors between principal employer and unskilled labourers. In-migration with its significant impact on various spheres of life is relatively new experience in the long history of Kerala which was otherwise considered as a region dominating in out-migration Majority of these in-migrant workers in Kerala are employed in the construction sector. The   construction work is hard physical labour often under difficult conditions like adverse weather, low pay and poor living conditions with lack of basic amenities and separation from family. It is in this context the present study analyzed these issues in details.

EVALUATION OF FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE USING VALUE ADDITION METRICS – A SELECT STUDY OF 'IT' COMPANIES IN INDIA

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8699/8704

 In today’s competitive world, value and wealth creation for shareholders are among the most important goals of businesses. For the sake of achieving his goals, the investor needs some instruments in order to measure the potential value of each investment opportunity. It is clear that these instruments are not capable of predicting the exact future, they just provide some piece of information and advice that help the investor in the decisions he makes. Among these criteria, the most common types are Return on Investment (ROI) and Earnings per Share (EPS). Despite the numerous applications of these instruments, theoretically, they are not related with shareholders’ value or wealth creation. In recent years, the modern evaluation techniques based on economic theories such as Economic Value Added (EVA), Market Value Added (MVA) and Shareholder Value Added (SVA) replace the accounting data-based criteria and have widely drawn the attentions. These criteria follow the performance assessment with regard to the changes in the value and alongside maximizing the long term shareholder returns. In this research paper, one of the most important criteria; i.e. Shareholder Value Added (SVA), is investigated from several viewpoints.

TRENDS AND CHALLENGES IN INDIAN BANKING SECTOR

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8705/8717

 The Indian banking sector has played a critical role in the overall economic growth. Private and foreign banks have started to gain traction in the sector typically dominated by government owned public banks. The sector’s assets have expanded vastly on account of several factors such as financial inclusion, increased competition, Indradhanush program, on-tap bank licensing, focus on mobile banking and technology along with others. While the sector has grown significantly, challenges and roadbloacks such as weak capital position of public banks, rise in non-performing assets, poor talent retention, weak consumer protection norms continue to haunt the sector and the overall economic growth. To counter these challenges, RBI has initiated reforms such as implementation of Basel III, enhanced provisioning for NPA, revised framework for resolution of stressed MSME loans, implementation of strategic debt restructuring (SDR), shift to a risk-based supervision model along with proposing a unified financial services regulator.

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8718/8727

 MSMEs in India have emerged as a dynamic sector of economy over years as it plays a crucial role in providing large employment opportunities and industrialization of rural areas. This sector is a major contributor of country’s socio-economic development. Despite of this sector’s inherent capabilities, MSMEs in India are facing number of problems and raising credit has become their major problem. This study examines various sources of finance that can be used by MSMEs and the obstacles faced by MSMEs in raising finance from such sources. For the purpose of this study, sample of 100 respondents from major cities of Punjab (Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Patiala and Mohali) was interviewed with the help of structured questionnaire. While descriptive analysis was used to identify the common sources for raising capital, factor analysis was used to reduce as well as to identify the major obstacles faced by MSMEs in raising credit. The study indicated bank as most commonly used source of finance over other sources and bureaucratic loan procedure, poor past records and performance of the firm, behavior of bank employees and high cost of financing as the major obstacles faced by MSMEs in raising finance.

EDUCATION TO THE DEPRIVED SECTIONS: A FOCUS ON TRIBAL WOMEN

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8728/8735

 Scheduled Tribes (STs), the socially and educationally disadvantaged groups are one of the most exploited and deprived sections of the population in Indian. Tribal women are deprived of education which is the integral part of life. The Indian Tribal family organisation makes discrimination between the sexes regarding education and empowerment. Needless to say, that exclusion from fruits of development has adversely affected the quality of life of the tribal people and Tribal children are no exception. So, the Tribal society is marked by inequality, discrimination, exploitation, domination and deprivation. This paper examines issues concerning school access and equity for Women of Scheduled Tribe communities and also highlights their unique problems, which may require divergent policy responses. There are several studies available on various aspect of socio-cultural anthropology of tribal people. But very few attempts have been made to study on Socio-cultural Tradition and Women Education in tribal society in the study area. This paper discusses the education progress among tribal’s particularly women in the present societies.
Keywords: Empowerment, Education, Tribal Women.

DR. B.R.AMBEDKAR’S PHILOSOPHY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE ON INDIAN SOCIETY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8736/8750

 The process of democratization from below has threatened the very existence of the caste system and the dominance of the traditionally powerful groups. We are now witnessing such momentous historic developments in the social system in India. It is in this historic perspectives, more and more sections of people are discovering the relevance and importance of the ideology of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who put forward scientific analysis of the caste system, the Hindu religion had evolved ways and means to fight out of the evils and degenerations, resulting into the very negation of human values and dignity. We often use the most elusive tern social justice but rarely define it as it is covered by conflicting claims of divergent approaches of divergent segments of society. Further it is a multi-contextual term having interpretations and implications in national and international spheres. The modern idea of social justice is concerned with ushering in a new social order without any border which could secure rights and advantages for the different sections of society in general and for the vulnerable and underprivileged sections of society in particular.  As whole, it is correctly that any genuine democratization process can be started in India only through social justice. For that the emancipation of the Dalits, by a restoration of self-respect, is very much needed. The vision of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar has given us a comprehensive programme for achieving social justice in India. So, it is the duty of all progressive and democratic forces to assimilate the ideology and vision of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar for the establishment of genuine social justice. 
Keywords: Social justice, marginalized, depressed, social democracy, justice, liberty, equality, fraternity, dignity, emancipation, human personality.

NEED OF PEACE EDUCATION IN TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMMES

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8782/8789

 Under the present predicament there is a growing realization in the world of education today that children should be educated in the art of peaceful living. As a result, more and more peace concepts, attitudes, values and behavioral skills are being integrated in to school curricula in many countries. There is also renewed interest to develop peace related disciplines such as value education, moral education, global education, etc. In the past we seemed to have assumed that the more knowledge people have, the better they are. Accordingly, we stressed cognitive learning in schools at the cost of developing children’s emotional, social, moral, and humanistic aspects. The consequence of such imbalanced learning is evident today in the forms of youth unrest with their antisocial attitudes and behavioral problems. The paper focuses on the inculcation of education for peace as an integral part of the teacher training programme. Education for peace implies an active concept of peace through values, life skills and knowledge in a spirit of equality, respect, empathy, understanding and mutual appreciation among individuals, groups and nations.
Keywords:  Peace,   Peace Education

DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS IN STUDENTS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8799/8817

 Communication plays an important role in our everyday life. Good communication is therefore vital for effective functioning in the work environment. There is overwhelming evidence that proficiency in communication skills can make any individual more versatile, and thus more competitive in the workplace. Communication is a mode, which helps every one of us to transfer our messages, thoughts, feelings, thinking, imagination and ideas. This is a function pre-installed or naturally exists in every human being to show his/her existence by language. Thus, every student certainly needs effective and impressive communication skills.  As a result, there are growing expectations from educational institutions to cater the needs of the workplace. One of the major issues we need to address includes, what measures should be taken to make the students work-ready‘? In this perspective, Teachers have an important role to play in enhancing the communication skills among students. Considering the diversity in the classroom, there is a growing demand to use innovative methods and strategies, including framing good quality instructional resources to enhance various sub-skills of communication among our students. An attempt is made in this article, to contribute to the ongoing discussion in the changing contexts of communication skills from the perspective of preparing our students to face future challenges.  The paper shares ideas on enhancing the four core elements of Communication skills, including listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in order to get an edge up in the competition for work and employment.
Keywords: Communication Skills, Education, Classroom Practises

INCOME GENERATION THROUGH MICRO-ENTERPRISES: RECENT CASES FOCUSSING ON FORWARD LINKAGE

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8850/8855

 In this article how micro-enterprises i.e. self-employment projects help to earn income of youths have been explained. In a huge country like India wage-employment cannot be provided to all as well as wage employment does not give creativity satisfaction also. On the other hand, self-employment which not only helps to earn income but persons involve with it get satisfaction also for creating new products/ selling products with self-esteem. For encouraging self-employment, the Government of India has initiated Rural Development & Self Employment Training Institute (RSETI), in almost all the districts of the country. As per the statistics (30th September 2017) reveal around 16 lakh youths have been settled through micro-enterprises after trained from RSETI. 
Keywords: Income, mela /exhibition, micro-enterprises, RSETI and youths.

INCLUSION: SSA, RTE ACT 2009

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8856/8871

 In this article an attempt has been made to focus on the Inclusion:SSA, RTE 2009.The Universal Elementary Education (UEE) plays a vital role in Universal strengthening the socio-economic base of a nation by promoting social justice and equity. Basic education is known to improve the overall well-being of people. Focus on UEE also became imperative, because India has been signatory to a number of international covenants – Jomtien declaration, UCRC, Millennium declaration, Dakar declaration, SAARC SDG charter for children, etc. With the formulation of the National Policy on Education (NPE) in 1986, a number of programs were initiated in India with a view to achieving UEE. These efforts got intensified through the 1990s via several specific interventions such as Operation Blackboard (OBB), the Shiksha Karmi Project (SKP), the Andhra Pradesh Primary Education Project (APPEP), the Bihar Education Project (BEP), the UP Basic Education Project (UPBEP), Mahila Samakhya (MS), the Lok Jumbish Project (LJP), and Teacher Education, which put in place a decentralized system of teacher support through District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) and the District Primary Education Program (DPEP) in 1993-94. The DPEP, over several phases, covered 272 districts in 18 states of the country.  (SSA) The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Scheme is a centrally sponsored scheme. It was launched in the year 2001 under the leadership of the then Prime Minister of India – Shri Atal Bihari Vajpai. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan program was launched with the aim of providing useful and relevant elementary education for all children in the age group 6-14 by 2010, and to bridge social and gender gaps, with the active participation of the community in the management of schools.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES OF ECOTOURISM WITH REFERENCE TO ITS EMPLOYABILITY POTENTIAL: UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8872/8882

 The growing tourist demand is resulting in an increase in pressure on our natural and other resources. Ecotourism has received much attention in recent years especially within the developing world. Eco-tourism can also be termed as management of tourism and conservation of nature in a way so as to maintain a fine balance between the requirements of tourism and ecology on the one hand and needs of the local communities for jobs, new skills, income generating employment and a better status for women on the other. It also aims to educate the tourist, to inform them, to provide funds for conservation of ecology, causing direct benefit to the economic development and political empowerment of local communities and areas, and foster respect for different cultures and for human rights. New projects have been started for strengthening ecotourism in Uttar Pradesh where visitors avail of improved tourism facilities such as accommodation, field infrastructure etc. This has resulted in promoting ecotourism in the state. In India domestic and foreign tourist arrivals have increased substantially from 2000 onwards. Uttar Pradesh received the big share of these visitors. Among all the states Uttar Pradesh was ranked 2nd in terms of domestic tourist visits and 3rd in terms of foreign tourist visits in India in 2016. This favourable statistics of tourism in Uttar Pradesh is capable of generating employment to both skilled and unskilled workers, directly and indirectly. At the same time it presents a lot of future challenges such as lack of good quality tourism infrastructure, global concerns regarding health and safety of tourists etc. This paper is aimed at exploring the opportunities and challenges of ecotourism in Uttar Pradesh with special reference to employment generating potential.

AN ANALYSIS OF SELF-CONCEPT IN MIDDLE ADOLESCENTS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8883/8889

 Self-concept, self-esteem and identity are constructs that psychologists find useful in understanding people’s development and behavior. The term self-concept is a general term used to refer to how someone thinks about, evaluates or perceives themselves. In other words the self-concept is the picture one has of himself/herself.Analysis of self-concept in adolescence is important for its predictive capacity of various behaviours in different contexts of life, family, social, school. The present study is an attempt to analyse the self-concept of adolescence with respect to its dimensions viz.Contentment and worthiness, Attractiveness, approval by others, Determinism and significance, Confidence and value of existence and Resilience.Descriptive survey method was adopted for the study and a sample of 100 (72 females and 28 males) middle adolescent age group students were selected by simple random technique. The Self-Concept Questionnaire (SCQ) designed and standardized by Robson was used as the research tool. The comparison and analysis of the datawas done using SPSS Version 25.The findings revealed a significant difference among the male and female adolescents with respect to overall self-concept and Determinism and significance, Confidence and value of existence dimensions of self- concept. Female mid-adolescents students were found to have a high self-concept as compared to male mid-adolescent students. 
Keywords: Middle adolescents, Self-concept.

DRUG DESIGNING FOR TARGETING FLT3 RECEPTOTTYROSINE KINASE FOR LEUKEMIA DISEASE

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8890/8908

 More than 30% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients possess activating mutations in the receptor tyrosine kinase FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 or FLT3. A small-molecule inhibitor of FLT3 (tyrosine kinase) that is currently in clinical trials appears promising for the treatment of AML. Here, we report the co-crystal structure of the kinase domain of FLT3 in complex with RTK. FLT3 with quizartinib bound adopts an “Abl-like” inactive conformation with the activation loop stabilized in the “DFG-out” orientation and folded back onto the kinase domain. This conformation is similar to that observed for the uncomplexed intracellular domain of FLT3 as well as for related receptor tyrosine kinases, except for a localized induced fit in the activation loop.The co-crystal structure reveals the interactions between RTK and the active site of FLT3 that are key for achieving its high potency against both wild-type FLT3 as well as aFLT3 variant observed.
Keywords:myeloid leukemia (AML), tyrosine kinase 3, co-crystal structure

STATUS OF GIRL EDUCATION IN RURAL AREA: A STATISTICAL STUDY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8909/8918

 Education seems one of the major enterprises of the 21st century to cater the needs of individuals in global economy and knowledge society. In the past five decades and more, many rural development programmes have been launched. The aim of these programmes have been to cover all the facets of rural life such as agriculture, animal husbandry, roads (communication facilities), health, education, housing, employment and nutrition. Recently, government undertook several schemes for enhancing girl child education. For example, free education for the girl students up to higher secondary level, stipend for the girl students up to secondary level, etc. These initiatives certainly had significant impacts on girl child  education. In many developing countries of the world, rural areas are the most populous  and are the most neglected region in the provision of basic amenities such as good roads, primary and affordable health care, electricity supply, potable water, well-equipped schools and other essential  infrastructural facilities. According to Ministry of Rural Development,GOI(2014), more than half of the world’s population and more than 75% of the world’s poor are in rural areas where hunger, illiteracy and low school achievement are commonplace. Education for a large number of people in rural areas is crucial to achieve sustainable development. Swami Vivekananda voiced "Education is the process of bringing out the potential that is latent in every human being." He enlightened that the very essence of education is concentration of mind, not the collection of facts. India has shown significant progress in the field of education since independence. But due to some obstacles the facilities are not reach to the grass root level because of gap between knowledge,implementing procedure,attitudes,& so many reasons.This paper aims at explaining the essentials of education in the rural areas through enhancing literacy, business skill and social awareness. The paper also identifies possible barriers, suggesting plans as a  tools to enhance quality of rural schools.

POTASSIUM AND CALCIUM ION CONCENTRATION INFLUENCE THE ETHANOL TOLERANCE OF YEAST ISOLATES

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8919/8932

 Ethanol toxicity in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae reduces titre and productivity in the overall industrial production of ethanol. The study aims to evaluate the effect of potassium chloride and calcium chloride on ethanol production, tolerance of yeast cells and to further optimize the salt concentrations in culture medium. Four commercially available strains of yeast were tested for their ethanol tolerance in absence and presence of 10mM to 50mM concentrations of potassium chloride and calcium chloride.. The isolate Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain OR was selected for further tests based on its ethanol tolerance profile. Potassium chloride at 30mM concentration significantly increased viability of the cells in presence of ethanol. The increased of levels of extracellular potassium and calcium ions strengthens transcellular and intracellular ion gradients, thereby potentiating alcohol tolerance of ethanol producing yeast.

EFFECT OF SOCIO SCHOOL CLIMATE ON MENTAL HEALTH OF STUDENTS STUDYING IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8940/8945

 Education is a powerful instrument for social, political and economic development of the country and is concerned essentially with the future. The strength of education system largely depends upon the quality of teacher who sustains it and the type of environment surrounding the educational institutions. But now a days, the problem of promoting mental health and healthy environment in a developing country like India, occupies high priority on the agenda of human development. Mental health promotion works on the principle that everyone has mental health needs, not only those people who have been diagnosed with the mental illness. Mental health should not be confused with mental illness, as mental illness is a form in which symptoms like stress, strain, anxiety, restlessness, tension and hopelessness are felt for too long time and too extensively. Mental Health is affected by the complexities of life provided by modern environment, which cause conflicts and stresses. Modern life is so complex that many individuals experience difficulties when they change from one environment to another. The stress in students is caused by social, emotional and personal factors and also by environment, education and occupation. Socio climate affects all types of activities and is useful for planning, predicting, modifying and evaluating various organizational systems. In an organization where different members function freely and positively to advance the goals and objectives of organization provide a healthy organizational climate. This research paper highlighted the effect of socio climate on mental health of the students.

EFFECTIVENESS OF HOMOEOPATHY IN THE CASES OF VERRUCA VULGARIS WITH THE AID OF COMPLETE REPERTORY - A RANDOMIZED, SINGLE BLIND CONTROL TRIAL

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8952/8957

 Verruca Vulgaris is the commonest skin disease in the dermatological practice. These are benign growths due to infection with papilloma viruses, which occur mainly on the hands and feet. Verrucae accounts for approximately 5%-10% of the skin conditions seen in patients in many countries. Our Aim was to ascertain the Efficacy of Homoeopathy in the cases of Verruca Vulgaris by comparing two arms i.e. interventional and placebo following holistic approach using Complete Repertory, simultaneously establishing the fact that Verruca Vulgaris requires medical intervention and is not merely a self limiting disease. Result was assessed on the basis of scores of scales viz DLQI (Dermatological Life Quality Index), Patient Global Assessment Index and Physician Global Assessment Index at first and final follow up; within one year of duration. Patients were reviewed for minimum six visits.  In interventional arm, 6 (20%) cases got cure, 7 (23.33%) cases showed mild improvement,         4 (13.33%) patients showed marked improvement, 8 (26.66) were status quo and 2 (6.66%) got worse, whereas, control arm, 1(3.33%) case got cured, 2 (6.66%) cases showed mild improvement 22(73.33%) cases were status quo, 5(16.66%) cases got worse. Holistic approach of Homoeopathy using Complete Repertory proved effective in the treatment of the Verruca Vulgaris. After prescribing the indicated remedy in appropriate potency and doses patient started improving depending upon  their vitality.  Simultaneously it can be concluded that either longer study duration is required for better results with centisemal scale potencies or 50 millisemal scale potencies are suggestible to cut short the period of medication to establish the better efficacy of Homoeopathy in treatment of Verruca Vulgaris.

EDUCATION FOR DEMOCRATIC CITIZENSHIP AND HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION IN GLOBAL CONTEXT

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8958/8967

 The present-day conception of human rights has historical roots. Rousseau, Socrates, and Plato in the West, and Manu, Vyasadeva, Gandhi, Aurobindo, and others in India have enunciated doctrine of human rights. Schools are places where it is theoretically possible to operate a community based on social justice and human rights. Schooling not only provides basic education but also aids a child to explore the world and express their thoughts. Education for democratic citizenship and human rights education (EDC/HRE) are didactic areas that add basically to our capability to live together in communities, in countries and nationwide. The aim of EDC/HRE is the establishment of sustainable and participative forms of democracy based on respect for human rights and good governance. As such, it is an ongoing venture for producing societies characterized by human rights principles like inclusion, non-discrimination, participation, and the rule of law. The National Curriculum Framework for primary and secondary education (NCERT 1988) identifies and addresses some of these concerns such as promoting values of egalitarianism, democracy, secularism, equality, removal of social barriers, and creating a sense of common citizenship. It proposes that the school curriculum reflects some world issues and helps make children become aware of and appreciate different world cultures. Hence, this study sought to explore the concepts of Human Rights Education and Education for Democratic Citizenship, its  curriculum as framed by the National Curriculum Framework for School Education (NCERT 2000), and Teaching of Human Rights and Democratic citizenship through Co-curricular Activities.
Keywords: Human Rights Education, Education for Democratic Citizenship, Curriculum, Co-Curricular Activities and Teacher

EFFECTIVENESS OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES IN DEVELOPING THE ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8968/8977

 Aim: The present study investigated the effectiveness of Information and Communication Technologies in developing the environmental ethics among secondary school students. Methodology: Keeping in view the main purpose of the study experimental method was used by the investigator. The study was conducted on a sample of 80 students studying in class IX of MDAV Senior Secondary School, Ambala. For the study, pre-test post-test control group design was used. For the purpose of the study an intervention programme based on environmental education developed by the investigators and scale measuring environmental ethics developed and standardized by Haseen Taj were used. t-test was used to compare pre-tests and post-tests of control and experimental groups. Findings: The results of the study revealed that before giving intervention programme both the groups were equivalent. There was a significant difference between environmental ethics of students of experimental and control group after intervention programme and significant difference was also found between the experimental group before and after intervention programme. Relevance: For formal education to contribute to sustainability, traditional systems and methodologies need to be re-oriented. Research shows the traditional education system has not succeeded in influencing choices and behaviours that would support sustainable development. ICTs, at their most basic level, enable the presentation of course content using multimedia (images, text and sound) and facilitate interactivity and simulation, thereby offering opportunities to improve learning and making new ways of understanding possible. Thus, the use of new technologies can offer exciting new possibilities to promote the changes in education methodologies called for in ESD.

APPLICATION OF MAXIMS OF TEACHING IN TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMME WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO INDIAN TEACHER EDUCATION SCENARIO

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 8978/8998

 The sole purpose of psychological principles of teaching is to make the process of teaching-learning interesting and maximize learning. These principles are better known as maxims of teaching and have always stood the test of time. Though these maxims are universally accepted in macrocosm of education, these are an integral part of teacher education programme wherein the teacher educators are mandatorily required to acquaint and equip the prospective teachers with the essentials and techniques of pragmatic use of teaching maxims in real life classroom situations. It is, however, a matter of pity that these maxims are either partially or totally neglected in the current scenario of Indian teacher education programme. The teacher educators don\'t themselves employ these maxims in their teaching, let alone their knowledge, comprehension and application on the part of prospective teachers. The present paper throws light on the psychological principles of teaching better known as maxims of teaching and their practical application in the field of teacher education programme besides giving valuable suggestions pertaining to developing favorable attitude of teachers, teacher educators and prospective teachers towards these maxims.
Keywords: Maxims, Prospective teachers, Teacher education, Teacher educators,

EFFECTIVE INTEGRATION OF ICT AND INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES TOWARDS TOTAL QUALITY ASSURANCE IN SCHOOL EDUCATION

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9025/9035

 This paper addresses the integration of pedagogy and technology in science teaching. Science teaching is such a complex, dynamic profession that it is difficult for a teacher to stay up-to-date. For a teacher to grow professionally and become better as a teacher of science, a special, continuous effort is required (Showalter, 1984, p. 21).  To better prepare students for the science and technology of the 21st century, the current science education reforms ask science teachers to integrate technology and inquiry-based teaching into their instruction (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1993; National Research Council [NRC], 1996, 2000). Good teaching “begins with an act of reason, continues with a process of reasoning, culminates in performances of imparting, eliciting, involving, or enticing, and is then thought about some more until the process begins again” (Shulman, 1987, p. 13). Thus, to make effective pedagogical decisions about what to teach and how to teach it, teachers should develop both their PCK and pedagogical reasoning skills .In recent years, many researchers in the field of educational technology have been focused on the role of teacher knowledge on technology integration (Hughes, 2005; Koehler & Mishra, 2005, 2008; Mishra & Koehler, 2006; Niess, 2005). This paper discuss the role of science education in 21st Century, the aim of science education ,purpose of science education ,changing trends in science education, meeting the changing needs in science education, role of ICT in transforming teaching and learning, the link between ICT and pedagogy  .At the conclusion it states that though integration of technology and pedagogy is essential for better science teaching but a balance between pedagogy and technology is required to avail the greatest benefit.

CRITICAL APPRAISAL OF FINANCIAL MODELS IN INVESTMENT DECISIONS & SECURITY TRADING

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9036/9042

 The current research aims to appraise financial models and analyse their usefulness in security trading. One of the main issues considered in this paper is the Capital Asset Pricing Model and the Arbitrage Pricing Theory, their major differences and implication in portfolio management. The results showed that these two theories, despite common ground, differ in terms of systematic risk measurement. However, both theories are used as a fundamental for portfolio management. The second issue analysed in the research is the logic of theBehavioural Finance Theory. The theory is a background for the application of technical analysis which is used to maximise investor’s profit and make decisions for buying and selling. Finally, the third part of the study investigates the application of the yield curve in trading securities. As results demonstrated, the yield curve is applied not only in investment decision making processes, but in forecasting economic situations. Itprovides information on future inflation and interest rates and helps to determine if the fixed-interest security is under-priced or overpriced.

MANAGING PRODUCT RECAL AND CUSTOMER LOYALITY IN CASE OF AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9049/9061

 Post globalization all over the world, product recall in various industries has become a primary obligation for a manufacturer in meeting the safety standards of use to the consumers. Despite a company’s best efforts to design, manufacture and sell safe and reliable products, the possibility still exists those dangerously defective products may reach the consumers. These products may cause accidents, leading to adverse verdicts in product liability litigations. Unfavourable publicity may result in loss of sales and damage to the company’s reputation. In the past, product failures were often attributed to local or functional errors in product design, the manufacturing process, or inadequate labelling with limited impact. However, in recent years, a series of high profile product recalls in Indian automobiles including Maruti Dezire, S cross, Renault Kwid, Mahindra Scorpio had shaken the public confidence in the ability of the manufacturers’, regulatory bodies and governments to assure the safety of products to consumers. It would lead to huge litigation fees and loss of sales, reduced manufacturing output and significant repercussions in global scale. This research paper addresses the concept of Product recall in the Indian context and Indian automobile industry, the Government of India /regulatory agencies and certain strategies to be followed.

PRODUCTIVITY IN INDIAN BANKING SECTOR- A STUDY OF SBI GROUP

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9078/9096

 The present paper studies the productivity in State Bank of India (SBI) Group. An examination of almost all the important issues in society would show that productivity is the only key solution to most of the economic problems. It touches all sections of society whether Government, big industrial units or small industries, profit organizations or public utilities. In India, public sector banks provide maximum assistance to the weaker section of the society. The objective of the present study is to measure productivity in SBI Group with respect to per branch and per employee. Data has been collected from secondary resources, mainly the annual reports of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and Indian Banking Association (IBA). For measuring growth & growth rates, study period has been divided into six equal sub periods of two years starting from years 2003 to 2013. Paper concludes with the help of selected financial indicators and compounded rate of growth. The study attempts to accomplish its objectives by making cross-sectional and inter-temporal analysis on the basis of 17 indicators. These indicators are divided into three categories. While one set of indicators measure output in terms of input of number of employees’ i.e. labour productivity, next set of indicators measure branch productivity. The last set of indicators depict productivity on the basis of certain financial ratios.  The division has been done by considering the fact that recruitment of employees and opening of branches are not even in different years.
Keywords: Commercial, Productivity, Industry, Financial, Indicators, Banking etc.

UMASHANKAR JOSHI’S HILLI: A TALE OF ‘SEARCH FOR IDENTITY’

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9097/9102

 Umashankar Joshi was a remarkable poet and playwright of twentieth century Gujarati literature. He remained one of the chief contributors amongst Gujarati writers to lead the society as well as Gujarati literature towards new directions. He emphasized the Gandhian ideology and enriched the tradition of Gujarati Literature. Umashankar Joshi exposes the social and economic ills deeply entrenched in the society. The girl named Hilli in the story is devoid of motherly love since her childhood. She is shown motherless growing under the care of Bavaji, the Sadhu at the outskirts of a village. Joshi stresses on the wretched predicament of motherless girl deprived off her social identity and her ultimate comfort in the form of seeking the mother within herself. Hilli remains the victim of immoral societal structure. The writer seems to confirm the hopes and despairs of human mind in a striking manner.  One of the fascinating features of this story is ‘Hilli continues to exist herself within two personalities’: mother and a daughter.
Keywords: social evils. Gandhian ideology, exploited class, human nature, psychological attitude, social identity

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS: MEDIATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL CAPITAL

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9103/9110

 The study was carried out to examine the relationships among the attributes of spiritual intelligence and psychological capital (PSYCAP) and also how PSYCAP mediates between spiritual intelligence and academic performance of college students. Participants were 360 college students in the age group of 18 to 20. They were administered the questionnaires of spiritual intelligence and PSYCAP. The GPA in their last university examination was used as academic performance score. All the correlations between the attributes of spiritual intelligence, PSYCAP and GPA were significant. Hence, the results implied for multiple and hierarchical regression analyses to examine the extent of prediction of the PSYCAP from the attributes of spiritual intelligence. It is observed that each of the four attributes of spiritual intelligence significantly predicted the PSYCAP variables as well as GPA. Spiritual intelligence explained 35%, 38%, 41%, and 39% of variances of hope, optimism, resiliency, and self-efficacy respectively. Each attribute of spiritual intelligence and PSYCAP also significantly predicted the GPA. Further, when PSYCAP variables were introduced in the 2nd step of the hierarchical regression analyses, the variances of GPA explained was increased by 8% to suggest the significant mediation of PSYCAP. Sobel’s test also confirmed the mediationof PSYCAP with each of the attributes of spiritual intelligence.
Keywords: Hope, Optimism, Resilience, self-efficacy, PSYCAP, GPA

TO SELF ROLE PRECEPTION OF TECHNICAL TEACHER COMMUNICATORS AT DEFFERENT LEVELS OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION WITH REFERENCE TO THEIR JOB SATISFACTION

Nov-Dec,2017, Vol - 4/37, Page - 9135/9140

 In almost a decade of opening up of opening up of the education sector, number of private self financing engineering & Polytechnic colleges and universities in India has started functioning. Today, there is a scarcity of the highly qualified, good oriented faculties and other administrative staff in the professional/technical education. Few reason attributed to this scarcity are the availability of more opportunities for the good and experienced faculties, non-availability of the serious candidates who desire to make their career in education sector and reluctance of the management to give full garden and other faciliting to the faculties and other administrative staff members of their college. This is resulting in another problem in these professional/ technical colleges and that is of high rate of turnover of employees. Various  studies have indicated that apart from number of difficulties the young faculty members need to undergo the training regarding soft skills, how to teach the students. The happier people are within their job, the more satisfied they are said to be. The paper is an attempt to explain what is the exact need of training to these newly appointed technical teachers.
