A STUDY OF INDIAN ARTISTS IN THE VIEW

Since its humble beginnings, art has always been a result of man’s intellectual and emotional connection with the world. Its primary aim is to produce a message which will either provoke an unexplainable consciousness within the hearts of its viewers or incite wisdom among the minds of the curious or the affronted. Due to its extensive role for man, art has long been studied in a variety of ways, with some scholars adapting the vantage point of mere aesthetics while some venture into comparative analyses.

AGRICULTURAL MARKETING OF PRODUCTS

Agricultural marketing connotes a series of activities involved in the moving of goods i.e farm inputs from the point of production to the point of consumption. it includes all the activities in the creation of time, place , farm and possession utility.

Output of agriculture is largely a raw material which is used for further processing Agricultural products are both are bulkiest and perishable. Bulkiness makes marketing difficult and increases the unit cost of transportation and storage. Perishable products require speedy handling and refrigeration. Much of the agricultural production is highly seasonal. Due to this, processing plants run at full capacity for some periods and at below capacity during slack periods. Quality and quantity of the agricultural products is beyond the control of farmer. Due to imbalances in supply and demand, prices of agricultural products fluctuate. variation in quality makes it tough to apply uniform standards from year to year. Agricultural output mostly comes from small units operating independently.

COMPULSORY STEPS FOR GIRLS EDUCATION IN PUNJAB

SERVICE QUALITY INDICATORS FOR SCHOOL EDUCATION

Quality is critical to educational institutions success as it plays a vital role in improving school  productivity in terms of results, co-curricular activities and discipline. It can bedefined as ‘the totality of inherent characteristics of a qualitative delivery by staff or service that bear on its ability to increase the demand for that qualitative delivery by staff or service at a fixed price’ and can best be measured by capturing student or parents perceptions of the performance of those characteristics.

A STUDY OF FUTURE TEACHING SKILLS

In psychology, memory is an organism’s ability to store, retain, and subsequently retrieve information. Traditional studies of memory began in the realms of philosophy, including techniques of artificially enhancing the memory. The late nineteenth and early twentieth century put memory within the paradigms of cognitive psychology. In recent decades, it has become one of the principal pillars of a branch of science called cognitive neuroscience, an interdisciplinary link between cognitive psychology and neuroscience. There are several ways to classify memories, based on duration, nature and retrieval of information.

A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF SALMAN RUSHDIES LITERATURE

English literature has sometimes been stigmatized as insular. It can be argued that no single English novel attains the universality of the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace or the French writer Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary. Yet in the Middle Ages the Old English literature of the subjugated Saxons was leavened by the Latin and Anglo-Norman writings, eminently foreign in origin, in which the churchmen and the Norman conquerors expressed themselves. From this combination emerged a flexible and subtle linguistic instrument exploited by Geoffrey Chaucer and brought to supreme application by William Shakespeare. Chaucer was described by his immediate successors as the ‘Father of English poetry’ and as a touchstone for defining both what was ‘English’ and what ‘literature’ was. How does that make sense to us now, six hundred years later in literary history? Through close readings of a wide selection of Chaucer’s writings we will not only celebrate the power and complexity of his use of language, but also investigate some of the questions posed by these early claims. How do we understand literary origins and what is at stake in our attempts to do so? How far does Chaucer contribute to a national (or nationalist) sense of English literature? How does the literature of the medieval past shape our current critical reading practices?

NON-VERBAL INTERACTION PATTERNS

The dynamics of teaching is a crucial factor in how much students learn (Grouws, 1981). Though students’ performance may not be a simple direct consequence of the teachers’ teaching act, the latter has a lot to do with classroom learning. Teachers establish the pattern of general conduct during a lesson, while on their part students establish certain types of behaviour to coincide with this pattern.

A STUDY OF E-COMMERCE IN MODERNIZATION

E-commerce is becoming ubiquitous but what does it mean for libraries? Some would argue that in EC terms, libraries have been involved in e-commerce for years with the marketing of services and resources through web pages. Others would argue that libraries are just beginning to enter the world of e-commerce with forays into offering ways for library users to pay fines or buy copies of photographs or other items online. Learn about the different ways e-commerce can be interpreted and how libraries are implementing e-commerce initiatives.
