Business to rehabilitation of persons with disabilities: A journey through corporate social responsibility

Dev Nandan Kumar

Disability rehabilitation in India has a long past but a short scientific history which started only after International Year of Disabled Persons (IYDP) in 1981. The Government of India is committed to provide rehabilitation services to all persons with disabilities. However, accessibility of rehabilitation services to persons with disabilities is too limited due to existing infrastructure, budget allotments, plan and policies etc. Corporate social responsibility is a business philosophy that stresses the importance of keeping the best interests of the wider society in mind. Although turning a profit every year and taking the business to new heights is likely to be main goal, it is important to consider the societal impact companies are having as well. The present study is aimed to study the significance of disability rehabilitation in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies of Indian public enterprises and to find out the top management commitment, corporate policies and practices, social inclusion and corporate investment in disabled entrepreneurship. Six Indian public enterprises were selected as purposive sampling to study by focusing related 16 domains. The results of the studies show that only 33% top management is formally committed to rehabilitation for persons with disabilities and only 17% corporate reports are talking about social inclusion and accessibility. The finding reflects that 66.7% PSUs have taken measures to make the organizations disable friendly only 50% reports highlights the steps taken by the organization to encourage the social inclusion and economic development of people with disabilities.

An overview on the sino - India relation after cold war to 2006

Hidam Ajit Meetei

This paper is being made on a humble attempt to throw light on the "An Overview on the Sino-India Relation after Cold War to 2006" on the basis of available sources. India and China had cultural contact right from the ancient period. It is fact that many Buddhist missionaries went to China and these Buddhist missionaries spread Buddhism in China. It is also significant to note that China learnt decimal System from the Buddhist missionaries. Many resolutions of the Indian National Congress on foreign policy were drafted by Jawaharlal Nehru before the independence of India. A few days after forming the Interim National Govt. Pandit Nehru made his first official announcement on foreign policy over All India Radio on 7th Sept 1946. In a B.B.C broad cast in 1949, P.M. J. Nehru declared that India had 2000 years of friendship with China. However Sino-Indian relations (1954-1956) differences arose over Maps. By 1957-58 the border dispute appeared to be developing between India and China. In April 1961, the Chinese intruded into Sikkim, in May into the Chusheel area of Ladak and in July into the Kamang Division of NEFA.

Empowerment of persons with disabilities through institutional based rehabilitation services

Dev Nandan Kumar

The Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPD) Act, 2016; replaces the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995. The RPD Act includes total 21 conditions under disability. The existing eight national institutes established during 1970s and 1980s are old fashioned and working for empowerment of single disability. Studies have shown that non-inclusion of persons with disabilities in the development process has several implications, as stigma of disability may result in loss of income and additional cost to the person with disability, for their care providers and other family members. This also results in loss of education and social exclusion to them and their family. The Biwako Millenium Framework 2003-2012; has been extended as new Asian and Pacific Decade of Persons with Disabilities for the period 2013 to 2022 to “Make the Right Real” for Persons with Disabilities in Asia and the Pacific. In addition to legal framework, extensive infrastructure has been developed to empower persons with disabilities in time bound manner by 2022. The present study has been conducted through purposive sampling and data shows that Composite Regional Centers (CRC) is providing only 84 % of rehabilitation services related to social security to persons with disabilities. Rehabilitation services related to education is limited to 28 %, employment services are 20 % and early intervention services are limited to 12 %.

Mrs. Parameswari, M., Mr. Gokulakrishnan, S. and Mr. Mathivanan, M.

The demand for two–wheeler is increasing day by day in leaps and bounds as it explores a stylish trend towards the modern youth nowadays. There are innumerable factors that affect them to stick with a particular brand. This study focuses at analyzing the factors that influence the customers to prefer the Suzuki Gixxer. For that the sample of 100 respondents has been chosen from the Coimbatore city. The sample was collected from the customers who owned the SUZUKI GIXXER and to know about the satisfaction level of the SUZUKI GIXXER two wheelers. The study identified few factors that influenced the customer preference such as colour/style, easy driving and availability of spare parts

Effectiveness of health education programme on knowledge regarding febrile seizure among mothers of under five children at selected villages of district Sirmour, Himachal Pradesh

Lovejot Kaur, Susheela Margaret and Simarjeet Kaur

Background: Febrile seizure is “a seizure in association with a febrile illness in the absence of a central nervous system infection or acute electrolyte imbalance in children older than 1 month of age without prior febrile seizure” Febrile seizure refers to the seizure associated with fever but excluding those related to CNS infections. It is the commonest cause of seizure in early childhood. It is related to abrupt increase in body temperature rather than degree of temperature rise. A relatively high prevalence of this disease due to the simultaneous combination of two major phenomena at a time, i.e. fever and seizure in children, cause severe anxiety in their parents so that sometimes they announced that their children are dying. Methods: In this study Pre-experimental (one group pre-test and post-test) research design was used and study was conducted in Karyuth, Kulath and Haloni Pul villages of District Sirmour, H.P. A total of 30 mothers of under five children were selected by convenience sampling technique.
Results: Data analysis was done by descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings of the study reveals that the mean ± SD of post-test mean ± score (17.90±1.561) which was higher than the knowledge pre-test mean± SD (6.10±1.626) Thus, the improvements mean score is 11.8. There was significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge score with the ‘t’ value is 25.330 found to be significant at level of p<0.001.
Conclusion: The results of the study suggest that mothers have inadequate knowledge and health education programme improved and updated the knowledge of the mothers to manage the febrile seizure conditions.

Awareness of basic life support (BLS) among doctors, nurses, interns and medical students in a medical college

Upendra Krishna Regmi and Prashant Kumar Datta

Objectives: Basic life support (BLS) is a life saving procedure and adequate knowledge and skills related to BLS are essential for all health professionals. This study was undertaken to evaluate the awareness and knowledge of Basic Life Support (BLS) among doctors, nurses, interns and medical students in a medical college.
Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted by using responses to a questionnaire regarding BLS by 131 responders. Out of all the responders, 59 were nurses, 41 were doctors, 13 were interns and 18 were medical students. The results were analyzed with SPSS version 20.
Results: The data was collected from 131 responders. The score ranged from 2 to 10 with mean score of 6.4±1.7. Most of the responders knew what BLS stands for. The knowledge regarding the sequential steps in BLS was poor among them. Only 60.3 % of them knew the correct rate of chest compression during adult CPR and only 58 % responders correctly answered the chest compression depth in adult CPR. The knowledge regarding compression-ventilation ratio was satisfactory. But only 55 % of responders knew the full form of AED and 61.8 % knew what EMS stands for. Among all, 65 respondrs (49.6 %) scored 60% or less. The steps of CPR and the components of high quality CPR were the areas in which their knowledge was poor. These are the areas which are the most important for effective BLS.
Conclusion: Knowledge of BLS among doctors, nurses, interns and medical students in this medical college is not satisfactory and needs to be improved. Awareness level on the most important aspects of BLS is not satisfactory indicating the importance of professional training at all levels in the medical college. Most of the responders did not have any training or courses regarding BLS. We suggest that inclusion of a BLS course and frequent workshops would increase awareness and application of this valuable life-saving skill.

Sri aurobindo: Relevance of his spiritual philosophy in the 21st century

Rakibul Islam

Sri Aurobindo was not only the best philosopher of the twentieth century, but he was a political leader, a social worker, a poet, a yogi, a spiritual leader, and an ideal teacher. Today in the twenty first century we are living in a world where all the windows of it are wide-open. Good and evil all creeps through the window’s uninterruptedly beyond our control. But it is certainly possible to resist moral degradation if we can lead life in accordance with Indian spiritualism. Now the question is: how there been any relevance of Sri Aurobindo’s spiritual philosophy during this modern era of rocket science and computer technology??? The answer is very obvious and is ‘yes’. In this context Sri Aurobindo’s Teaching and Philosophy is utmost important if Human being wants to live in peace and harmony. He is very much relevant in this Twenty first century where Science and Spirituality should go side by side. The scientific development which is fixed eye only in the materialistic progress will not be able to achieve the permanent peace in the world but simultaneously it is very much necessary to uplift the human being through spirituality.

Globalization of real zeros of a random trigonometric polynomial

Dr. P. K. Mishra and Dipty Rani Dhal

Let EN(T; Φ’, Φ’’) denote the average number of real roots of the random trigonometric polynomial
T=Tn(θ, ω)=
In the interval (Φ’, Φ’’). Clearly, T can have at most 2n zeros in the interval (0, 2π). Assuming that ak(ω)s to be mutually independent identically distributed normal random variables, Dunnage has shown that in the interval 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π all save a certain exceptional set of the functions (Tn (θω)) have zeros when n is large. We consider the same family of trigonometric polynomials and use the Kac_rice formula for the expectation of the number of real roots and obtain that
EN (T ; 0, 2π) ~
This result is better than that of Dunnage since our constant is (1/√2)
Times his constant and our error term is smaller. The proof is based on the convergence of an integral of which an asymptotic estimation is obtained. 1991 Mathematics subject classification (amer. Math. Soc.): 60 B 99.
