The study is aimed at exploring and identifying those challenges that act as an impediment in the career growth of women professionals in this part of the country. For a women to be career conscious comes with various kinds of challenges and obligations in our society, and amidst that to be a career conscious lady in this part of the country which is still developing in terms of its approach and accepting changing societal trends and patterns becomes even more challenging. Therefore, majority of the ladies who are working professionals in this region takes their employment merely as a job rather than a career. They generally, succumb to family and societal norms and restrict their working domain to a mere time bound job. Also, there are various organizational and work related challenges that ad up to this pressure. Those are organizational specific and vary accordingly. Therefore, the main aim of this study is to trace out by exploring and identifying all those challenges that women professionals face and present various implications of it in a rational and objective manner.</p> <p>The basic nature of the research is descriptive as it describes in a systematic manner the various barriers that were perceived by women professionals in their path of career advancement. For this purpose, a questionnaire (structured) was prepared and circulated among the respondents to gather useful data. To gain better understanding and develop deeper insights into the subject, the researcher also relied on having personal interactions with the participants (as much as possible) so that their perceptions and perspectives can be understood in a more logical and rational way. The research is carried out in the Rohilkhand region of Western Uttar Pradesh in the Bareilly division which comprises of four districts – Bareilly (divisional headquarter), Badaun, Pilibhit and Shahjahanpur. Bareilly, being the divisional headquarter is the seventh largest city of the state and a counter magnet city, offers more job opportunities and work prospects as compared to other cities of the division.</p> Abhinav Nath, Arvind Shukla ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1467 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Changing thrust to feudalism: An Indian Historical Approach http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1471 <p>Feudalism was a regime of sub-contracting the task of administration and revenue collection but due to the vested interests of feudal lords and excessive craving for profit for a better lifestyle led to the oppression of vulnerable and downtrodden section of the society who were not having any option but to work under the purview of oppressive bosses for the survival. As evident from the study of history, that no age was and is the golden age because there have been only two types of people in the society- one is the ruler and the other who is being ruled. So, the condition of feudalism was no exception. Whether it was the ancient era, medieval era or the modern era, oppression for profit was inherent in its course. However, it could have been a better machinery to govern the society and the regulation of agriculture as a primary source of commerce and trade by adopting swift and non-corrupt practices having the mindset of development of society as a whole. Although, feudalism is not in practice but neo-feudalism regime is still ruling the modern era and the oppression of people on the hands of elite and powerful is still going on. The practice of oppression can be eradicated by empowering the weak and vulnerable sections of the society by reform in administration, grass root development, ensuring accountability of ruling class towards the people and adopting transparent mechanisms for better implementation of policies and welfare of the downtrodden sections of the society.</p> Atul Pandey ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1471 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Environmental Ethics and Human Ethics http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1472 <p><em>The genesis of ethics is that it is a normative study. Normativity is the hallmark of ethics. However, there are various spheres of ethics or more succinctly, it can be said that within ethics there are sub-divisions of ethics. For example, within applied ethics or practical ethics, there are environmental ethics, bio-medical ethics, business ethics, developmental ethics, and media ethics. Likewise, within traditional or classical ethics, there are virtue ethics, deontological ethics, teleological ethics, consequential ethics, etc. Environmental ethics belongs to practical ethics and by the term human ethics we mean traditional ethics. Traditional ethics are primarily concerned with humans. According to this theory, only humans are regarded as moral agents. Only humans’ can evaluate moral actions from normative perspective. The objective of environmental ethics is altogether different from human ethics. But they are inter-related with each other. Environmental ethics talks in diverse ways. Within its diversity, the main contention of it remains the same. It attempts to establish intrinsic value to all natural communities. The main strategy of this paper is to unveil the foundational aspects of moral subjects. It would explicate in what sense moral agent and moral subject are linked with each other. In any sort of ethics the will of the moral agent counts the most. Morality does not bear any sense if the freedom and will of the moral agent is ignored.These are some of the important questions that the paper will deal with.</em></p> Md.

Government relentless efforts for holistic development through various microfinance programmes for enhancing income generating activities had given thrust to training and capacity building of micro entrepreneurs. But excessive Nonperforming assets (NPA) in maximum microfinance programme portray a gloomy picture of this sector and restrain the flow of credit. Owing to these issues this research study is conducted for identifying the major factors affecting the perception of experienced micro entrepreneurs towards “Training Needs” given by Funding Institutions and training issues in current programme. And for this research we used blend of quantitative and qualitative research methods and data is collected through structured questionnaire by conducting focus group interview of 722 micro entrepreneurs. This research reveals the new type of training need - that micro entrepreneurs’ required such training that helps them in decision making for keeping the loss in tolerable limit in case of failure of micro business &amp; restrains the loan to turn into bad loan. Furthermore other training needs identified. Prospective research scope is in the area of on the job training for micro entrepreneurs. It is divulge in research that region based need for e.g. incubation for micro enterprises etc. should be embraced while framing policy.</p> Aradhana Chouksey ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1476 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 The Therapeutic Journey of a Seven Year Old: In Search of Self http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1484 <p>Miss S, a 17 year old Hindu, female, currently in eleventh standard, with no family history of mental problem.

It will influence the overall success of the organization in terms of quality or quantity. Therefore, undoubtedly, one of the most precious assets of any organization is its human resource. This reality may imply to teachers as they occupy the central role in the development of social or economic. For this, priority factors to be focused are working conditions, leadership styles, incentives, trainings for their professional growth, rewards, trust and teachers’ policy needs to be amended in order to motivative competent teachers in the schools.

Through content analysis the researcher tries to find out the coverage of rural news in two national dailies of Delhi, one Hindi and one English, namely, Dainik Jagran and The Hindu, respectively with comparative analysis. Print media specially the newspaper is one of the important tools to communicate about development information to the rural population.&nbsp; How far newspapers are catering to the informational needs of the rural folk is under scrutiny. The content analysis of the two leading newspapers of Delhi have depicted a dismal picture in coverage of development stories and news related to rural areas. Rural news hardly appears in newspapers and few news items reported in inner pages of the newspaper by the reporters. The maximum rural news published in newspapers is not related to rural development; it is only concerned with accidents, crime and politics. Far from balance between urban and rural reporting, there is negilisable reporting about rural areas. Thus, only focus newspapers have is on urban elite, hence the development cycle is hampered resulting in the gap between the rural and urban India in achieving development. Rural keeps on remaining the same underdeveloped, laid back or deprive; the first step towards bridging this gap would be equal or due coverage and information access to rural areas, it’s high time newspapers take this responsibility seriously.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Nidhi Chaudhry, Manoj Dayal ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1493 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 On Deep Ecology: Some Considerations http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1498 <p><em>The main strategy of this paper is to explicate and examine the concept of deep ecology from the perspective of environmental ethics. Deep ecological movement is the most important theory of environmental ethics because it is directed and developed to fulfill the basic objective of environmental ethics. The basic objective of environmental ethics is to restore non-anthropocentrism, environmental justice just by way of giving equal values to all biotic as well as a biotic communities. Thus in a sense, deep ecology is deeply rooted with valuing nature. Deep ecology is a process of self-realization, self-cultivation. It is the cultivation and self-examination of the qualities of the individual soul. It is a process of becoming; a process of enlightenment through which an individual reveals that he is not isolated from others. Instead he comes to know that he an integral part of nature. Here one can take the help from traditions. There are traditions in East and West and one can take up a tradition to apply it in his life as a method of self-realization. This paper is deeply involved towards examining the objective of deep ecology, the process of acquiring non-anthropocentrism as a mark of environmental ethics, and more importantly the process of self-realization or self-examination. The paper eventually asserts that deep ecology is supposed to be an ideal theory of environmental ethics the implementation of which ensures non-anthropocentrism, environmental justice. </em></p> Biswajit Barman ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1498 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Trends in Indian Textile Export Market: An Analysis of Revealed Comparative Advantage with Special Reference to China http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1499 <p>The Indian textile industry has an immense presence in the economic life of the country and Export is the main determinant that can reflect the development and capability of any nation.

Generally Town Planners prepare the Master Plan or Development Plan for the future development of the towns. They plan for the future by estimating the population projection and based on which the land use, infrastructure, amenities and facilities. Khammam town in Andhra Pradesh is a fast growing urban centre. It has a Population of 1, 84,252 (2011) and a Planning Area of 34.50 sq. kms. With the rapid increase in population the urbanization is also spreading onto the neighboring rural areas. So, urbanization and changes in urban sprawl, land use, population growth and other aspects require periodic monitoring from time to time. The present work concentrates on some of the views mentioned above. Here, Remote Sensing, GIS, .NET and Open Source Tools and Technology are used to address the objective of the study. The results of the study indicate that the urban sprawl of Khammam town was 15 sq. kms. in the year 2011 and a population of1,84,252 in 2011. The population projected for the year 2031 using Parabolic Method is around 2,19,731. The number of houses for the year 2011 was 40,054 and the demand for the number of houses projected for the year 2031 is around 47,767. The “Housing Demand Module” developed for the Khammam Town can be of immense help for taking care of future Housing Demand as part of Urban Planning requirements by the Khammam Municipality.</p> D.

In this paper an attempt has been made to predict future relief (relative relief is taken as the indicator) and simultaneous dry and wet condition (drainage density is taken as the indicator) using ARIMA (Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average) model after accessing the present pattern of the same using polynomial trend. The results show that the region is in the youth stage and progressing to the transition stage of youth and maturity with the time lag. This result and methodology may be very useful for the future perception of any relief and moisture condition to take required developmental framework especially for such areas having extreme environmental stress viz. Purulia District of West Bengal where drought is a regular event due to poor underground water condition and less moisture holding capacity of the soil. The overall height or relief condition of the district is slightly increased and tends to achieve stability and through the dynamic equilibrium the region is approaching towards the matured stage of development. Drainage density, another morphometric parameter seems to be deteriorated rapidly probably due to drought in the near future and hence acute water crisis can be forecasted. ARIMA helps to monitor and predict the local relief and moisture condition of the study area very efficiently.</p> Shrinwantu Raha, Shasanka Kumar Gayen ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1518 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Hydrothermal method for Synthesis of different Nanostructure Metal Oxide thin film. http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1519 <p>Earth is a closed system.

In this study the prime focus was to identify the imbalance created in life due to working couple’s routines and preferences. For that, the current attempt to find out sources of social pressure on couples as well as the problems occurring in their maternal life due to unbalanced work-life. In this regard, the primary data was collected by using structured questionnaires through convenient sampling from 180 respondents. Work-life balance is take as a dependent variable and work over load, career progression, stress and quality of life ware taken as independent variables. Moreover, reliability and validity of the data is confirmed before applying regression analysis. Based on the empirical results this study concluded that the career progression, work over load, stress and quality of life affects work-life balance significantly. Moreover, the current research conclude that work overload doesn’t affect work-life balance of dual career working couples significantly.

In the study area, XI coal seams have been encountered. This study is based on subsurface sandstone samples collected from drill-hole cores. Core log data reveal occurrence of 25 inter-seam sandstone horizons designated as A to XY upward. These sandstone horizons are composed of medium to fine grained, moderately sorted (0.88 σ<sub>I</sub>), fine skewed (0.23 SK<sub>I</sub>) and leptokurtic (1.65 K<sub>G</sub>) detrital grains. Most of the detrital grains exhibit floating contacts (36.92%) followed by point (30.52%), long (5.66%), concavo-convex (3.49%) and rarely sutured contacts (0.45%), suggesting loose to moderate packing. The detrital composition of sandstone is represented by quartz 47.28% - 83.57%, feldspar 0.16%-23.25%, mica 0% - 13.68%, and rock fragments 0.37% - 8.88%. Matrix makes up 1.02% -26.71% and cement 1.53% - 24.95%. Following Dott (1964) the Barakar sandstones are divided into arenite and wacke clans. QFL, QmFLt and QFRF suggest a mixed continental block to recycled orogen provenance. The mineral maturity index (MMI) indicates immature to submature nature of these sandstones. The log ratio of the total quartz to rock fragment against total quartz to feldspar is indicative of low relief and humid climate, while fluvial depositional environment is ascertained by plotting grain size data on standard deviation versus mean size and standard deviation versus skewness plots of Friedman (1967).</p> Shahid Ali, M.W.Y.

In fact, their scattered, isolated and remote habitation kept them away from benefits of development. However, tribal are regarded as earliest habitant in the land, their human development achievements remain poor than subsequent population. In this paper human development and inequality depicts through the various indices including Human Development Index (HDI), Gender Inequality Index (GII), Gender Development Index (GDI), and Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). This paper attempts have been made to compare the achievement of human development indicators for a specific group, Scheduled tribe to the state average of Chhattisgarh. It also strives to discuss put forward critical comments on human development achievements of the tribal. For mapping the human development, several government reports and earlier studies have been reviewed. This study reveals that, in the state, Chhattisgarh, measure of human development among the tribal is found much lower than the rest of the population. Although, tribal are facing difficulties in accessing education, health and descent living standard, women belonging to this community are more likely to be employed and politically engaged and having greater economic ownership compared to the non-tribal, reported in this study.</span></p> Hari Ram, Jagdish Jadhav ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1532 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 A comparative phytochemical evaluation of two exotic fruits and two fruits native to Kerala http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1533 <p>The study was done to evaluate and compare the phytochemical and phytonutrient properties of selected native and exotic fruits. Earlier, only native fruits were available in any place but now, fruits from throughout the world can be procured from any place. It was earlier believed that fruits produced at specific season were best suited for that season and that place. Hence in order to compare the change in phytochemicals if any, this work was designed. The phytochemicals selected for investigation were glycosides, flavanoids, alkaloids, phenol, terpenoids, saponins, tannins and phyto nutrients like carbohydrate, vitamin C, protein and amino acid,&nbsp; in the extracts of 2 native (Jack fruit and Mango) and 2 exotic (Dragon fruit and Kiwi) fruit varieties. Mango (a native fruit) showed highest values in flavonoid (189.5 mg/g), saponin (162.105µg/g), glycoside (93.8 mg/g) terpenoid (244.997mg/g) and alkaloid (850.957) content. Jack fruit showed high concentration of tannin (1142.856 mg/g), amino acid (51.25µg/g) and carbohydrate (636 mg/g) content. Kiwi was found to be the fruit with highest protein (3.31 mg/g) and phenol (0.137mg/g) content. Dragon had highest content of vitamin C content. The nutrients present in the fruits provide essential health benefits while the phytochemicals give protection from a series of natural health defects. To reach a conclusion, all fruits in the nature whether native or exotic were beneficiary to human health. But fruits may also have a spatial and temporal effect on human health as their production is controlled by environmental factors of the area and thus can differ in the phytochemical content.</p> Jincy Rose K R, Ayona Jayadev ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1533 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Roots of Indian Feminism Reflected in Kundanika Kapadia’s “seven steps in the sky http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1536 <p>Feminism in India had to take care of various fundamental issues related to the upliftment of women. In the West it must have been space, position, independence and power and liberation for the well educated self sufficient women. Here in India Feminism began with social reformation for the welfare of the suffering, illiterate and enslaved women. Indian women have voiced their actual feelings through fictional works. This research article aims to explore aspects of Feminism as depicted in the novel Seven Steps in the Sky (1994) by Kundanika Kapadia. Though women did not participate actively in the feminist movements at that time, the subdued urge for a respectable position in society can be observed in the women characters of her novels. As the women became educated they gained awareness regarding equal rights and privileges. Therefore for the purpose of exploring Feminism in India, this novel has been selected and the women characters in them have been analyzed.</p> Bharti Dave ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1536 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Social Responsibility: The SME Case What To Expect From CSR Engagement: An SME Perspective http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1537 <p>Contemporary literature unanimously points towards need of further research to build our understanding on the relationship of ‘Small and Medium-sized Enterprises’ (SMEs) and ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR). The extant publications on this subject have clear bias towards large corporations. The phenomenon is more striking in Indian context. Hence, the researcher decided to investigate the CSR aspect of SMEs through his doctoral research. He surveyed 226 manufacturing SMEs in Bhosari industrial area (a thriving industrial hub near Pune). This paper is an excerpt from his doctoral thesis where the benefit aspect of the SMEs-CSR engagement is discussed in detail. The researcher enquired on the benefits perceived by SME-owners out of adopting socially responsible business practices. The study further correlates the perceived benefits with CSR awareness of these firms. The analysis asserts that internal benefits (retaining their current employees, improving motivation level of the existing employees and better economic performance) were perceived as more important benefits by CSR-aware SMEs whereas external benefits (organizational reputation and recruitment) could not be well perceived as benefits of being socially responsible.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Anthony Rose, Prabhat Kumar ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1537 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Foreign Direct Investments in Insurance Industry in India: Opportunites and Challenges http://ijikc.co.in/index.php/ijikc/article/view/1539 <p>The study is an attempt to examine the growth of Foreign Direct Investments in insurance industry in India.
