Medicinal Plants and Raw Drugs of Tribals

Modern pharmacopoeia still contains at least 25% drugs derived from plants and many others, which are synthetic analogus, built on prototype compounds isolated from plants. Interest in medicinal plants as a re-emerging health aid has been fuelled by the rising costs of prescription drugs in the maintenance of personal health and well being and the bioprospecting of new plant-derived drugs.

This book incorporates articles on: Important Medicinal Plants: Their Chemical Constituents and Uses; Medicinal Importance of Bryophytes: A Neglected Group of Plants; Medicinal Properties of Pteridophytes; Wild Edible Plants and their Method of Preparation and Mode of Consumption in Tribal Area of Odisha, India; Medicinal Properties of Elaeocarpus ganitrus (Rudraksh)- An Over view; Nutritional Value, Health Benefits and Medicinal Uses of Pear (Pyrus communis); Herbal Home Made Remedies in Cure of Diabetes in Folk Claims in Central India; Ethnomedicinal Plants in the State of Rajasthan-A Review; Ethnomedicinal Uses of Herbal Plants in Snakebite in Central India; Ethnomedicobotanical Observation on the ‘Chajine’- Moringa oleifera from Upper Brahamputra Valley, Assam; Ethnomedicine for Autoimmune Diseases by the Tribes of Srikakulam District, Andhra Pradesh; Herbal Folk Medicine used by the Kaibartas of Dibrugarh District, Assam, India; Mikania micrantha (Asteraceae)- A Miraculous Climber having Remarkable Anti Bleeding Activity; Pharmacological Action and Medicinal Uses of Green Chillies (Capsicum frutescens); Cultivation Practices of Geranium sps.

Empowerment of Indian Women
Sushil Kumar Goel
At present the great task before us is the task of nation building. This task cannot be achieved unless the women of our society share the work in an effective manner. The essential and indispensable contribution of the womenfolk can be expected only when they received qualitative education, employment & training and they got enriched, enlightened and empowered. Thus, education is essential to empower the women. The ultimate solution to wipe out the crimes against women is to empower them through education. Women empowerment aims at eliminating discrimination and challenging gender inequality. A high standard of learning and culture was reached by Indian women during the Vedic age. The idea of Indian civilization continued to flourish as India transcended its journey from Ancient to Medieval to Modern times. The book on “Empowerment of Indian Women” contains 9 chapters relating to various conceptual and qualitative issues on women’s studies. This book is very informative, intellectually stimulating and interesting. The need for such a comprehensive document was always felt in our country but was never fulfilled. With this book, the author has fulfilled this long-felt need by bringing out different aspects and dimensions of women’s studies, particularly in the Indian context. Hopefully, this document will serve as an essential text-cum- reference tool not only for professionals working in the field of education but to the policy planners and administrators as well. It will also be a useful document for the parents, community members and the lay persons. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed./M.Ed./Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/ M.Sc. Child Development /MA Women’s Studies/ MA Sociology/M Phil Women’s Studies /Diploma students in all Indian Universities. ..more

Eco-Cultural Tribal Development
Meenakshi Soubhri
The tribal population is an integrated part of the biodiversity of the forest since ages. A large number of ethnic aboriginal tribes are there who live in and around forests in India. The tribes of India inhabitat different types of ecological setting and have adapted to these natural environments totally and completely. A culture - based development strategy for tribal enables new knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be most effectively and efficiently introduced within the frame-work of existing cultural patterns, institutions, values and human resources. Culture is a living entity, and to survive, it must not only functionally adapt for changing conditions but can indeed be at the vanguard of such change. A bridge is needed between development agents and tribal people to facilitate the transfer of information, skills and attitude-sets relevant to tribal development. Most of the rehabilitation schemes for the tribes have failed to yield desired results because of the cultural factors - some apparent, other subtle, but all critical to the absorption of the development programmes. The understanding of the culture phenomena and their integration for tribal development programme is indispensable. The tribal culture should be-viewed as a foundation rather than as a barrier to change. The relationship between culture and development goes very smoothly for the progress of tribes. Thus, taking into cultural dimension of tribal development not only means adding a spiritual dimension but also to include a dual reflection on both the logic of development and cultural progress of tribes.  ..more

Demographic Transition in India
Seema Sharma
Demography is the scientific study of population. Demographers seek to know the level and trends of population size and its components. They search for explanations of demographic changes and their implications for societies. The Indian demographic scene was undergoing a significant change. Although the country still continued to be in the explosive second stage of the demographic transition, yet the trends in fertility and mortality for the country as a whole, as also for its large parts, indicated a perceptible change. The faster decline in the fertility rate in comparison to the decline in mortality rate of the country was a significant development in this regard since the mortality rate in the country had already declined significantly. The introduction chapter of the book includes effects of population growth on economic development, socio-economic background of India and study area, it includes methodology and data base, objectives and chapter plan also. Chapter two Demographic Transition Theory includes theories those launched by various classical economists and demographers. On the other hand this chapter also includes some measures of main components of demographic transition. Chapter 3 gives overwiew of literature whereas chapter 4 discusses demographic parameters over the years, the parameters are Fertility and Mortality, Urbanization, Literacy and Sex Ratio etc. Demographic profile of the region is studied in chapter 5 wheres chapter 6 deals with fertility and mortality model and empirical results. In this chapter district-wise analysis has been done. Population policy (1999) of the state, needs of population policy and various aspects has been dealt in chapter 7 whereas Demographic Dividends and its Implication are discussed in the last chapter, where we can see the dividends in India.The demographic dividend is not an involuntary marvel, but it requires an integrated and cohesive policy framework in health, education and in labour sectors to reap this dividend and capitalize the window of opportunity increase which is stressing our resources and hampering economic growth. In the last overall summary & final cunclusion of the book is given.  ..more

Awareness of Human Rights in Adolescents
Nivedita Paul
The objective of the book is to bring forth the awareness of human rights amongst the adolescents who are the future citizens of the Indian society. It is indeed the adolescents who will create and decide what is the actual value of these rights. With the awareness of their fundamental and human rights are the adolescents aware of their duties, too? This book is on to find out whether adolescents are really aware of their human rights and if they are aware how much they are adjusted in the society with regard to their culture and socio-economic status. It was accepted worldwide that promotion of human rights is the only way to world peace. So almost all countries framed laws to ensure and protect human rights of their citizens. Though next world war did not occur yet the target of peace could not be achieved within the territories of various countries. Worldwise terrorism has added fuel to this fire-destructive situation. This has proved that law or constitution alone can not protect the human rights of citizens. Now educationists have given a solution to this problem. They have suggested that human rights education might protect human rights of citizens all over the world. But this target can be achieved when human rights education becomes a compulsory part and parcel of B.Ed./M.Ed. and school curriculum. This book will be of special interest to non-governmental organisations, bureaucrats, sociologists and educationists, human rights activists and those general readers who wish to understand and be aware of wide ranging implications of Human Rights.  ..more

Rethinking Gender Equality
Anil Kumar Singh Jha
Indian women are born into a socio-cultural fabric steeped in inequality and discrimination. Women are forced to accept their suppression of freedom and lowering of human dignity as a fait accompli. Bridging the gap between an ideology of equality and a reality in which women are discriminated is the need of hour. Rethinking Gender Equality provides a critical analysis of existing gender inequality in Indian society. The book is a humble endeavour to decipher the specific challenges encountered by women in modern Indian society and how do they negotiate traditional norms as they seek to redefine their self-identity and well-being in modern era. The cornerstone of writing this book is to help readers develop their critical thinking about the pertinent issue which affects everyone’s life. This book is divided into six chapters i.e. Unwanted Daughters; Plight of Female Literacy, Reproductive Health; Child Sexual Abuse; Domestic Violence and Human Rights of Women which are based on the latest reliable data to show the ground reality. Rethinking Gender Equality is a veritable treasure trove of data on critical issues related to women.

Dictionary of Research Methods
Janak Singh MeenaSubhash Meena
Effective research methods are the tools by which information is gathered. Without the appropriate design and use of research methods, we are unlikely to gather quality information and as such create a shaky foundation to any review, evaluation or future strategy. For researchers, the group of research methods contained within this handbook are the research terms, and like any methods need to be used in the right way–for the right research. Research methods, if understood and used appropriately can make your research a lot easier. This book, therefore attempts on the one hand to explain and demystify the world of research methods, whilst on the other it seeks to provide a strarting point for their use. In this, we are not suggesting that using research methods is easy, but merely that it can be appreciated and undertaken by practitioners and non-research experts. This book, reflects our wider aim to develop and improve the performance of the researchers in their research works. In this, we hope this handbook goes some way in helping to address some of the persistent issues faced by researchers and contributes to ensuring positive changes in research field. ..more

Gender Identity and Roles in India : Issues and Challenges
Swati ChakrabortyRushiraj Balkrishna Upadhyay
From primitive times to the contemporary era, we can see that the status and role of women are changing periodically. In that context, there are lots of variations we can find in the gender identity and the human rights awareness. As a matter of fact, masculine power is consider superior in most societies and in that sense women are marginalized in various sector. Women become victims of discrimination from the family to the work place. Here articles and papers from different parts of India describes various views on different themes relating to gender in development. Gender in Development is of utmost importance today in the fields of research and academics. When we converse about Gender we focus on women and their overall development. Women are an important part of the functioning of any society. From family to group, group to region and region to country, women, like men, play important roles in various activities. Even so, women are found to be socio-economically discriminated everywhere. In that context, for the comprehensive development of women, it is a pre requisite to analyse the status and role of them through various aspects such as Education, Health, Politics, etc. Since social science is concerned with facts, it needs to reveal the facts behind the extent of gender development (past and present) in Indian society. The editors have also included human right concepts in the context of gender and development. The book will be of interest to academics, research scholars feminists, social researchers policy-makers and non-governmental organizations alike. ..more
