Breeding of Horticultural Crops
V. PonnuswamiT. Sumathi
Horticultural crops are those that serve to fit the special food and aesthetic needs of humans. In horticultural crops, quality is supreme. While it is true that there is no arguing about taste, the fact of the matter is that many horticultural crop cultivars with unique qualities are so unique, admired, and appreciated that they become the basis for entire industries. Examples include the 'Bartlett' ('Williams') pear which dominates fresh fruit production and is almost the only cultivar used for processing, 'Hayward' kiwifruit, 'Smooth Cayenne' pineapple (for processing), 'Clementine' mandarin, and 'Dwarf Cavendish' banana. In horticultural crops, breeding objectives must be consumer directed because consumers make individual decisions about consumption and make choices between different cultivars and alternate crop species. Innovations of individual breeders combined with further breeding efforts to increase usefulness and adaptation are the key to horticultural progress. It is clear that a way must be found to incorporate consumer satisfaction in the selection process. The contents includes l Objectives and Scope of Plant Breeding l Modes of Reproduction, Mating Systems & Their Significance on Population Structure l Modes of Pollination Control and Systems of Breeding l Sterility and Incompatibility Systems l Genetic Properties of Populations Under Equilibrium; Changes in Gene & Genotypic Frequency, Genetic Load, Genetic Drift l Factors Affecting Gene and Genotypic Frequency l Factors of Evolution and Speciation, Importance of Biodiversity Conservation l Implication of Taxonomy In Breeding l Mendalian Inheritance and Non Mendalian Inheritance l Crop Improvement Methods – Plant Introduction and Selection; Through Hybridization; Pedigree Breeding; Bulk and Single Seed Descent Method; Mass Selection,Recurrent and Reciprocal Recurrent Selection; Back Cross Breeding l Development of F1 Hybrids l Synthetics and Composites l Mutation Breeding l Polyploidy Breeding l Breeding Methods for Perennial Horticultural Crops l Breeding Methods for Annual Horticultural Crops l Breeding for Biotic Resistance l Breeding for Abiotic Stress Resistance l Molecular Markers,Genetic Fedelity Conformation and Markers Assisted Selection l Genetic Transformation Methods in Plants l Gene Silencing It is hoped that this book will be useful to all stakeholders involved in breeding in Horticulture. The book is designed to prepare students for postgraduate school or careers in research and development of horticultural crops. ..more

The Bawarias (Socially and Politically Ignored Community)
Rajendra Prasad Gora
Every community is bearing its separate social, cultural and economic properties. Castes those are economically poor and socially neglected are included in scheduled castes. The statutory lists of scheduled castes are notified pursuance of articles 341 of the Constitution of India. After special notification for scheduled castes in Constitution of India, these castes are very poor in economic and social condition, than other castes and are poorly developed. In aforesaid reference a community also lives in isolated and outskirts of villages. The living style is very specific than other community and is called Bawaria. They look like nomadic tribes. They are also known as Khogi-Bawaria, Mogia, Bawaria, Baori, Bhora and Van Bawaria. They are mostly distributed in Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. The urban and rural communities dont like Bawarias, because they hunt and are not capable to take bath daily. They have been traditionally depending on forest products and have survived by hunting and gathering non-timber products. The degradation of forests rendered Bawaria critically helpless, landless and homeless. So they have to struggle even for any open habitat of the outskirts of human settlements. These people are away from civilization and depend on primary occupation and having separate life style, dialect and culture. Bawaria are not only illiterate but also shorn of vocational or livelihood skills. They have less drinking water, education, medical facilities and this community is categorized with many evils. They are traditionally backward from social, economical, educational and are very far from cultural development. This community has very low population in all the regions, therefore this community is politically and socially neglected. Hence this community is unable to follow the progress. After seventy years of our independence we must evaluate how far we have succeeded in achieving our goal related to the scheduled castes and nomadic tribal people and their socio-cultural and economic development. It seems that the various plans and programmes and their implementation could not play a catalyst role in the terms of generating the forces within the scheduled castes and tribal communities, which can promote change in the socio-cultural and economic conditions of these communities. In this context it is being realized that in making the attempts for the development of scheduled castes and tribal communities, they have to come forward to take the responsibility of their development themselves. Though their socio-cultural and economic status has not changed much, their attitudes and lifestyles are being affected or influenced by the development interventions. Thus it assumes significance to explore the socio-cultural and economic study of Bawaria community.  ..more

Nutraceutical Spirulina : Commercial Cultivation Using Rural Technology in India
Pushpa Srivastava
Spirulina - the blue green alga is worldwide known for its highest nutrient contents in a balanced form required for human body. As such it has been raised from "nutrient" to "Nutraceutical, since it is food and medicine too. Its potentials were realised but its cultivation in semiarid zone of Rajasthan and seismatic zone of Gujarat remained an enigma. This book provides solutions to problems and makes Spirulina cultivation production within the reach of rich and poor both. It holds a great future so far its marketing is concerned. At home it has been less popular plant, since most of the produce is exported as it brings exciting revenue. However, the simplified technology not only makes it easily cultivated commercial alga, rather simultaneously provides handsome profits. It is a unique plant which provides health to its consumer and wealth to its cultivator. The book is divided into 20-sections, covering almost all aspects of Spirulina cultivation including problems and their solutions. It covers a comprehensive literature on algal biotechnology in general and Rajasthan in particular. Significance of chemical composition is highlighted. The physical factors and chemical requirements that influence the biomass production are given sufficient space in the book. Ground nut shell ash extract - a novel nutrient added to the composition of the medium, is first on record. Commercial cultivation at Rajasthan and Gujarat states provide sufficient data for its production in any part of the country. The comparative account of the two states stands a witness to this fact. The nutrient rich Spirulina proved its pharmaceutical significance in a number of diseases included in sections 10-18 that justify its designation as Nutraceutical. This book provides entire information pertaining to Spirulina cultivation in the country-side, cheap and easy and ruling out the myths about its production in rural areas. It will be an asset to botanists, scientists, research scholars and more so to enterpreneurs, who can happily lay their hands on commercial cultivation of Spirulina.  ..more

Nuclear Weapons and International Security
N.C. Asthana IPSAnjali Nirmal
Nuclear weapons are there to stay forever. Nations may keep on talking of disarmament, universal peace and development but still keep a fearsome inventory of nuclear weapons. The USA, even as its military power is unchallenged in the world, is still spending a whopping $ 1000 billion on the modernization of its nuclear weapons—other nations are bleeding themselves dry anyway. It is because no one can guarantee that nuclear weapons would never be used. Had that been the case, there was no point of keeping them in the first place! No one should believe that whatever that is too horrible to think of cannot happen. This means that in future wars, nuclear weapons can indeed be used and we must be prepared for it. It is therefore imperative that we must analyze the subject of nuclear weapons and international security comprehensively in all its dimensions. This is what this book does. The notions which you have derived from TV, films or popular articles are all wrong. This book, written by eminent scholars including a nuclear scientist, busts all the myths associated with the business of wars and nuclear weapons. In one cover, this book provides comprehensive and absolutely authentic information on the nuclear weapons and policies of North Korea, Israel, Iran, China, Pakistan, USA, Russia, England, France and India. Indians, of all the people in the world, cannot afford to be not interested in nuclear weapons because we are surrounded by two hostile neighbours who are both nuclear powers. Hence whether you are a lay man; a student of military science, defence & strategic studies; a media person; a policy-maker; or in the armed forces, you must read this book so that you understand the dangers that we are facing. ..more

Microfinance, Inclusive Growth and Rural Development
Kartick Das
The book is intended to examine different parameter of human development in India taking into consideration of economic growth of India in recent past and to what extent economic growth remained inclusive for disadvantage and vulnerable groups in India. There is very little disagreement that the Indian macroeconomic performance has indeed been credible - higher and resilient growth, rising per capita income, a change in the national psyche, which is buttressed by the growing strength in the external sector. At the same time, there is no denying the fact that the large part of our population is still not connected to the mainstream socially or economically. Chapter I of the book tries to interpret the concept inclusive growth taking into consideration of inclusive growth. Inclusive growth implies delivering social justice to all, particularly disadvantaged groups. Chapter II makes attempts to study different initiatives taken by the government to achieve inclusive growth. Chapter III of the book attempts to understand the nature of transition from a socialist to a liberalized economy that has helped India emerge from a bottomless pit for aid to become a potential economic superpower. Chapter IV seeks to explore the missing ingredients of the economic growth. Strong economic growth is succeeding in bringing people out of poverty; nevertheless the country still has a long way to go before it can eradicate poverty. The growth is far from inclusive. Chapter V deals with issues and challenges of micro credit in India. Chapter VI of the book makes an attempt to understand present economic scenario of India and to focus on different dimensions of financial inclusion towards reducing yawning gap between haves and have-nots in crafting a sustainable and inclusive growth. Chapter VII explore the potentialities of the PRIs (the third tier of democratic governance after the constitutionalisation of the PRIs by the 73rd and 74th Constitution Amendment Acts, 1993) to became an effective micro finance institution at the door steps of the rural poor. Chapter VIII tries to explore issues and strategies of financial inclusion in India. The last concluding chapter provides conclusions and suggestions for the acceleration of reform process towards achieving higher and inclusive economic growth.  ..more

Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment
Meenakshi Meena
Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but also essential foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Gender equality is achieved when women, men and transgender enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including socio-economic participation and decision–making. It also includes the different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured. Gender equality also describes the nonexistence of apparent or veiled disparities among individuals based on gender. Although government has constituted several laws and Acts in favour of women, but unfortunately, in spite of all the support by the constitutional and legal rights their freedom is overlooked, in reality, they still lag behind to enjoy to them. They are often exposed to discrimination, oppression, exploitation, degradation, aggression, humiliation, sexual harassment, moral discomfort etc. The condition are worse in the rural areas and urban slums where they are exposed to all possible uncivilized, unprecedented activities, possibly more because of lack of education, awareness of their rights. The role of the women in the development of a human being’s personality and the growth and progress of society cannot be either denied or undervalued. Acknowledgement of women with law is not enough to pave way in their empowerment but needs very effective practical approaches and education so that they can empower themselves. Now in the age of science, computerization, knowledge and independence, and for the progress and development of the society, our cultural boundations and limitation are started being broken down. Women’s empowerment has been a major concern for the world community particularly during the last quarter of the twentieth century. Women empowerment is commonly associated for social justice and equality. It is a process aimed at changing the nature and direction of systematic process that marginalize women and other disadvantaged sections of society. Now women empowerment becomes a very important issue for policy makers, intellectuals, social activists etc. This book deals with numerous burning issues, views, arguments, problems, aspect and different perspective of women’s empowerment and gender equalities in India.  ..more

Index. “Since the 1980s health-conscious consumers, especially in developed countries, have been concerned about the possible adverse effects that “harshly preserved” food might have on their health and on the health of future generations. The philosophy of consumers has changed from, “How long will I live?” to “How well will I lie?” which in turn has shifted the desire of these consumers to nutritious, natural, and minimally processed foods that have not been subjected to “harsh processing” or “harsh preservation” techniques. Due to changes in socio-economic patterns and life styles, many consumers are also interested in foods that have a long shelf-life and take very little time to prepare. The suitability of several nonthermal processing and preservation methods are being searched to produce such foods. Various conventional and modern food preservation methods, are elaborately explained and discussed in this book. The book should prove to be an useful source of information for the students of food microbiology, food science and technology, food biotechnology, home science, agriculture, horticulture, environmental sciences, hotel and catering management as well as other food related curses. This book will also be useful for the people who are working in food processing, catering houses and food research institutes.” ..more
