Editorial for GOLDEN RESEARCH THOUGHTS August 2013:
Volume III, Issue 2 / August 2013 of Golden Research Thoughts coagulates an impressive number of articles addressing research concerns from various fields of interest and thus opening new perspectives upon the contemporary world.
The tradition of bringing together articles that may seem eclectic in choice serves a larger audience that would be interested in enriching its knowledge by exploring a diversity of topics from various domains. It is the great advantage of developing this type of multidisciplinary platform for specialists and the general reading public to get familiarized with newer or different areas of interest.
Articles that may be considered representative for the multidisciplinary policy of the journal are, as follows:
R. Velayutham’s proposed research study, “History of an Island Connected with Mainland” focuses on the particular case of Rameswaram Island, its socio-economic history and development starting with the rule of Sethupathi of Ramanathapuram, going on with the British rule and its condition during free India. A particular attention is given to the development of the ways of transportation as a key factor in the local societal and economic development.
“Indigenous Nutritious Medicine for Andropause”, authored by M. Niharika and A. Jyothi, tackles the natural nutritious alternative treatment to the andropausal stage, after exposing the symptoms of andropause. The authors discuss the benefits of zinc consumption as well as of a diet rich in vegetables likely to raise testosterone levels.
A study of two literary works situating themselves apparently antagonistically, Sheeba V. Rajan’s “Dystopia in Oryx and Crake Vis-a-Vis The Utopia of Walden: An Ecocritical Approach” manages to bring the two texts together against the common background of ecocriticism, concentrating on the environmental issues and the way these impact human life. The two hypostases are exposed as a dystopic vision – man’s actions as dramatically affecting nature – and a utopian one – man’s projected communion with nature.
Deepa Viswam, in “Political solution as garnered by the national dailies during the ethnic crisis in Sri Lanka- Frame analysis” deals with the manipulative role of the press in approaching a particular regional case, namely the role The Hindu and New Indian Express played in framing the ethnic crisis in Sri Lanka. The author emphasizes the ideological performance of the newspapers, underlying the distortive influence they had on the topic, identified as both an overt propagandistic pattern of deliberation and a pattern of hidden attempts at manipulation. A constructed discourse, the author claims, can indeed distort reality.
Arup Mukherjee’s “From CSR to MCSR: The Journey towards Mandatory Corporate Social Responsibility in India’ discusses the passage from corporate social responsibility to mandatory corporate social responsibility with Indian companies and the criticism this transformation has triggered within the corporate world. The article also presents the history of CSR in the context of Indian corporate world.
The condition and status of the slaves in the agrarian sector of Tamil Country in the first half of the 19th century represents the research focus of D. Victoria’s research paper “Memorandums, Reports and Observations of British Officials over the Relations of Land Lords and Agrarian Slaves in the First Half of Nineteenth Century.” The relations between the slaves and their landlords are outlined in this article through the lens of the British administrative reports of the time.
The study of Rakesh Bharti, “A Study of Personality Factors in Relation to Emotional intelligence of Student-Teachers”, underlines the role of emotional intelligence in student-teacher formation and their future achievements. Acknowledged as a key factor in work effectiveness, a condition of high achievement and positive behavior in any organization, emotional intelligence in student-teachers is measured and proven as variable, affecting personality as well.
The special case of the Anganwadi workers is dealt with in “Knowledge of Anganwadi Workers and their problems in Gadwal (Rural), Mahabubnagar, Dist. Ap.”. Haji Ali Baba presents the condition, role and knowledge of the Anganwadi workers engaged by the government to satisfy the education need of children up to six years old as well as coping with the necessities of pregnant women, nursing mothers, and adolescent girls.
Starting from the concept of social justice and the necessity of its concrete application in nowadays society, Alankar Anil. R and Chandrakumar Sedamkar B’ study focuses on the special case of the Dalits in Indian society and not only. The authors advocate the necessity of a movement of genuine emancipation that could consequently trigger a true social transformation of the weaker sections of society, as well as a defeat of the brahminical social order. All this is necessary in the national and international context of social emancipation and integration.
In “Case Study on Capital Budgeting with Special Reference to Walchand Nagar Industries Ltd.”, Barbole A. N., Yuvraj D. Nalwade, Santosh D. Parakh discuss the concept of capital investment and the maximization of profit in a company, with special application to Walchand Nagar Industries Ltd. The study is based both on primary and secondary data.
The current issue of Golden Research Thoughts displays a much broader thematic and equally challenging articles. It is our invitation to read the articles and thus get enriched, once again, with aspects of our society, aspects that we can influence, change or move further.
