Psycho Physiological Effect Of Vethathiri Maharishi�s Kayakalpa Yoga On Pcos � Clinical Trial[]

Disease, old age ,and death are the three major problems which have been engaging the attention of medical scientists for centuries and in a different way ,that of philosophers as well. Swamiji vethathiri maharishi founded the simplified kundalini yoga for the benefit of humanity.This aim was to bring about peace around the world. A good healthy body awakens the good soul within us. This helps to maintain peace in and around each individual which finally helps to achieve ,the goal of SKY trust. For this swamiji introduced Kaya kalpa technique to the humanity. kaya kalpa yoga is a rejuvenating technique which was discovered by our siddhars, and lost during due course of time. This was once again brought back by our swamiji in an easily understandable way. Kaya means body and kalpa means immortal. In South India vedic rishi Agasthiyar is said to be the father of kayakalpa. Tradition from South India - Simplified and Systematized by his holiness Vethathiri Maharishi. Kaya kalpa technique has three fold objectives.There are many benefits according to the regularity sincerity and dedication of practicing kayakalpa yoga given by vethathiri maharishi.All these are founded , practised and given to the society to enjoy good health, long life, enough wealth, wisdom and peace by swamiji.My research study is aimed to control the hormonal imbalance in pcos by practising kayakalpa technique regularly.

Use of Bio-fertilizers and Organic Inputs - as LISA technology by farmers of Sangamner[]

Modern farming practices affect our world, by the way of land degradation, nutrient runoff, soil erosion, water pollution, soil compaction, loss of cultivated biodiversity, habitat destruction, contaminated food and destruction of traditional knowledge systems. These all result into changing climatic conditions of the earth. Farmers are directly getting affected due to these climate changes as it affects the crop production. Sudden change in normal weather conditions sometimes results into the total crop failure. These ill effects of modern agriculture and climate change can be delineated by adopting organic farming. This paper summarizes use of biofertilizers and organic fertilizers by the farmers in Sangamner region of Maharashtra as low input Sustainable agricultural technology (LISA). Though the use of chemicals in agriculture is inevitable to meet the growing demand for food in world, there are opportunities in some areas where organic production can be encouraged to tape the domestic export market. Farmers are now using the biofertilizers, Vermicompost, Poultry manure, Jeevamrit as source of organic manures in their fields in Sangamner. There are actually a wide variety of biofertilizers that have been evolved through universities and independent research labs, but these are not disseminated upto the 100 % farmers. Sustainable use and conservation of natural resources are the key components to face the problem of soil degradation and climate change.

Remote Sensing & GIS Tools for Urban Studies in Akola city, Maharashtra.[]

GIS is widely used as tools to digitize remotely sensed or cartographic data complemented with various ground-truth data, which are geo-coded using a global positioning system (GPS). GIS can be used to analyze the spatial characteristics of the data over various digital layers. If sequential data are available quantification of spatial changes becomes possible through overlay analysis. GIS is an expanding information technology for creating databases with spatial information, which can be applied to both human settlements (e.g. demographic databases) and to the natural environment (e.g. distribution of populations and environmental factors). Most importantly, the combination of both types of database can ensure sustainable management. Population acts on land through a spectrum of activities, which can be broadly classified as agricultural, commercial, industrial, residential, transportation, administration etc. This study demonstrates the use of high-resolution satellite date in generation spatial date on to the image for the city. Road patterns within the city are analyzed and road network map is generated. Cities and towns are undergoing unplanned and uncontrolled growth due to rapid urbanization, which lead to changes in land use pattern and transportation network. Also lack of infrastructure facilities and utilities has been a growing problem in urban areas. Creation of additional infrastructure in tune with the increasing population is essential for improved resource management and better living conditions. RS has provided and important source of data for urban infrastructure and transportation system planning, monitoring and implementation, mapping individual settlements and internal roads, urban complexes, urban utilities and urban land use mapping.

Remediation of Produced Water Ponds and Associated Crude Oil-Impacted Soil, Wafra Oil Field, Kuwait[]

This paper describes a novel, multi-year approach to optimizing the remediation of >2 million m3 of impacted sand in a complex environmental setting, while meeting stringent international risk guidelines. Historically, 380 hectares of above-grade evaporation ponds were used to manage produced water at the Wafra Oil Field. To facilitate closure of these ponds and associated crude-oil impacted soils, a risk-based cleanup was selected wherein the former pond areas were reclaimed using soils which were temporarily stored as stockpiles after stabilization and sampling. A risk assessment conducted for the site identified 3.2% total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) as a cutoff protective of human health and the environment. To optimize remedial design, soils were categorized into two types based on TPH concentration, 1 to 3.2% TPH (Type B) and <1% TPH material (Type A). Laboratory analytical data from a stockpile characterization were correlated with field test-kit and color analyzer measurements to develop a simple field TPH measurement tool. Then statistical analysis coupled with computation of soil volumes and three-dimensional modeling was used to describe the spatial distribution of soil Types A and B in the stockpiles. Next a redistribution strategy was developed to meet international remedial goals. Quantification of spatial TPH distribution in the five stockpiles allowed streamlined hauling distances to the former impoundment locations, while use of real-time global positioning system (GPS) survey data of stockpile reduction, in conjunction with geographic information system (GIS) applications, allowed for accurate calculation of volumes excavated and placed as backfill. Integration of sophisticated computer technology into overall project design optimized environmental engineering, while the GIS methodology also tracked real-time progress and provided final documentation for the project.

Use of Multimedia Technology in Teaching and Learning communication skill": An Analysis.[]

In Teaching and learning communication skills, we have a lot to choose from the world of technology: TV, CD Rom, Computers, C.A.L.L., the Internet, Electronic Dictionary, Email, Blogs and Audio Cassettes,Power Point, Videos, DVD's or VCD's. The last two decades have witnessed a revolution due to onset of technology, and has changed the dynamics of educational institutes, and has also influenced the educational system and the way people interact and work in the society. This rapid rising and development of information technology has offered a better pattern to explore the new teaching model. Using multimedia to create a context to teach communication skill has its unique advantages.As a result technology plays a very important role in teaching communication skill.


The human rights are indisputable rights of every human being that enable a person not only to live but also to live with dignity. But human rights invite a number of preconditions for the realisation of the same. It is now being realised that protection of human rights at the domestic level is possible only when good governance prevails. The provision of good governance works as precondition for human rights' protection and growth. Since good governance can help in the realisation of different human rights from the right to life to the environmental rights and other economic, political and social rights, demand has been made to declare right to good governance as the most basic human right. The paper is an attempt to analyse the conceptual background of these two concepts disjointedly and how the two contribute to each other and the possibilities of the joint application of the two in general and particularly in a democratic country like India.

Politics of Nationalism: Insider's Views of pan-Naga Ethnic Community's Nationality Question in Ethnic Boundary Line[]

In the universal nature law, everyone is equal. Thus, in this concept, we could have live harmoniously and happily without antagonize to each other. But men are craving for power, status and glory. These instincts make them to go for unrightfully dominances, conquers, conflicts, mutual treaties, segregates ‘us' from ‘them'. Thereby, the question of nationalities and birthrights, assertion of identities and maintenance of territorial (physical) boundaries, politics boundary, protections and negotiations become inevitable facts. Thus, drawing to this perspective, the author is taking significantly and critically examining the longest Indo-Naga problems in Constructivists perspective of insider's views is an attempt scholarly debates and suggestions for future course of action in democratic and pacific means to an amicable solution.

Baseline of Content-Based Image Retrieval[]

Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is used to identify relevant images based on their similarities to query images. CBIR has two types of features - high level feature & low level feature. Retrieval of images using high level features is very difficult. In this paper we present low level image feature: Color. Extraction using the Color feature gives accurate result. In color feature extraction, we use HSV attributes of image (Hue, Saturation and Value). In this paper we use Euclidean distances metric algorithm for ranking of images.


In the present emerging global economy, the focus has been shifted from manufacturing to service sector necessitating the quality assessment in service sector as an important issue. Education sector, especially Technical Education System (TES), is characterized as highly process oriented, intangibility and multistake holder situations. Therefore difficulty arises in evaluating quality of education being imparted aggregating the input and output components in such situations for obtaining an overall performance measure. Selected technical institutions under JNTU are assessed for their service quality using DEA and suggestion is put forward for the non-performing institutions. The result shows significant difference between the conventional system of evaluation and DEA methods.This paper presents an overview of efficiency in Technical Institutions and the measurement thereof, it includes a review of main techniques that can be used to measure the efficiency in technical institutions. In this paper we analyze the efficiency for Women's technical institutions by using CCR Model.
