Synopsis of Study

This research will mainly focus on the unplanned areas between the planned new towns. These areas are located between the urban rural interfaces and have immense regional importance. The process of this regional transformation will be analysed with the help of modern Geographical Information System (GIS) and a combination with ethnographic study. Though both the towns have developped in different time regime but the purpose of development was same. Therefore, this comparison will be interesting to find the regional, geographical and social characteristics of the unplanned areas within the planned township. This research work will also compare the satellite towns in view of the issue of growth along with the policy of creation.

Synopsis of Study

My research focuses on the idea of the performance of pleasure (such as singing, dancing, making out and so on) in public spaces through song and dance sequences in Bollywood which as, we all know ,has reserved a special imaginary for this form of pleasure expressed through the body at a particular location. I am looking at ‘spontaneously’ expressed pleasure, which eliminates pre-choreographed performances and dancing in ‘sanctioned’ spaces such as dance competitions organised in malls. Theoretically, I do not include malls and clubs in the realm of ‘public spaces’ for they operate on the basis of exclusive access to a particular class of people. Thus, I am looking at heterogeneous public spaces such as buses, trains, monuments, etc.

This program has provided digital literacy to over 1 million children though hands on experience. It also encourages decision making and problem solving abilities among students. Like the example of Kerala it is necessary to start projects in all over country for social inclusion, better qualitative education and developing trust in education for coming generations. The main advantages of ICT based learning is innovative inclusion, learner’s engagement, effective mode of learning, cost effective, coherence, consistent and transparent way of providing education facilities to students. In coming years, it would be interesting to see India’s changing education trend through Information Communication Technology mode of learning!

Synopsis of Study

My research is on the pedagogy of training for employment and income. Specifically I am focusing on soft skills training conducted as part of vocational training which is usually followed with job placements. Most of the participants in such training are school drop outs or those who are not able to pursue higher education (in college) mainly due to economic constraints. Since skill development is a issue of prime national concern, in the changing economic, demographic and technological environment I have chosen this topic. The Government of India has made ‘soft skills’ training an integral part of vocational education in the skill development policy announced in 2009. However, soft skill training is a ‘culturally situated’ idea, because soft skills focus on personality development and behavioral change. In a vast country like India, with a multi-cultural society delivering soft skills training is a challenge. The core idea of my research is to study the existing pedagogies and analyze them using theoretical resources drawing upon existing knowledge in the area learning theories and cultural psychology.

Human capital is the concept evolved over the century with rising economy and industrialization. The Human capital management in changing market economies is my central theme of research. Associating and maintaining the human capital many problems occur to the organisation due to liberal mechanisms of hiring and flexible employment norms in management. Thus HR management in the organisation has to keep working on recruitment most of the time as stated by Armstrong M. Thus the solutions to the problems of keeping the inventory up for the organisation is takes time. Thus the market economy and the problems associated with it will be addressed during the research to find out the various possible outcomes and getting the optimal solution

Synopsis of Study

An inquiry into the issues of development of the region must, therefore, necessarily examine social, political and economic changes and the roles of agriculture, the different agrarian systems unique to different communities, the everyday interaction of rural communities among themselves and with the outside world, ethnic flare-ups in the past and armed insurgency today, and the state as a police state and as provider of public goods in these changes. The study sought to examine the trajectory of social and economic change visible in rural communities in the light of liberalisation of national economy in nineties, political and ethnic imbroglios from around the same period, and growing connectivity of countryside to market. The questions on labour organisation, land, common property resources, village taxation system, access to public goods, and interaction of village community with the outside world must be examined to understand notions of economic backwardness and change at empirically observable unit of village. Thus, the tradition of village study will be employed in pursuance to the examination of social and economic changes empirically observable in the countryside.

Synopsis of Study
Most theoretical and empirical studies of capital structure focus on business enterprises. However, there is hardly any study conducted on financing structure of Social Enterprises. Therefore, the key determinants of financing structure of SEs do not appear much clearer today. In this backdrop, the proposed study attempts to identify the determinants of a SE’s financing structure.

Synopsis of Study
The topic of Gender at workplace has fascinated me since the time I have started observing the complexities in our organisations. Half a decade of work experience in a few Organizations have made me curious as to how the social organization of sexual difference has contributed to workplace perceptions and ultimately the culture. I am optimistic to note that the state of affairs have been improving ever since the opening of unmatched opportunities for both men and women professionals.

However, their entry or presence in an organisational set up does not necessarily guarantee their active contribution. The expectations that the workplace has on her given the kind of assumptions/ stereotypes in place; and the standards which a woman is expected to attain are again topics of debate. Women are a very unique subject of interest for me. My affiliation to that gender may be simply because I am a woman too. Nevertheless, I wish to learn the workplace through the eyes of a woman and how she feels the environment, in which she is, perceives her.
As we try to analyse a woman in her own workplace or women in her own social construct, we feel that a fresh perspective/ study on how she views her workplace, needs to be done. I wish to learn as to how a woman evolve in an organisation, the perspectives she earn, the mimicking she tries if any, the growth pattern she forms, in comparison with the organisation’s perspective on this evolution of hers. The complex masculine world in which she thrives needs some analyses too. I wish to understand the extend of monopoly on her reason, rationality, and wisdom which gave considerable support to laws, customs, and day-to-day practices in workplace.

Erik Erikson (1969, p. 413), writing about Mohandas K. Gandhi noted, “Truth in Gandhi’s sense points to the next step in man’s realization of man as one all-human species, and thus to our only chance to transcend what we are.”

Through the study I wish to translate the understanding into a hope of transcending my perception of my own gender.

Synopsis of Study

Precarious employment of construction workers in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
Half of developing world’s workers trapped in vulnerable jobs, working for themselves or in unpaid family work according to a report of The International Labour Organistion’s (ILO). The ILO’s annual report on Global Employment Trends, 2012 states that South Asia has the highest rate of vulnerable employment in the world, with Bangladesh (63.3%) and India (62.9%) of total employment leading the region. Construction sector is booming all over the India now. In developing country’s this kinds of sector is emerging normally. There are large number of workers working in construction sector. Mainly, metro cities provides ample opportunities to create employment for these workers. The big malls, multi-storey buildings, cinema halls, multiplex, big flyovers, bridges and so on are the basic infrastructure amenities find in metro cities largely. Thus, labour is vital factor of production to make these all things and this sector is basically a labour intensive sector. Large number of workers are needed to carry out these work.

Precarious employment is generally characterised by uncertainty and economic insecurity for temporary and part-time workers, who are involved in ambiguous employment relationships through subcontracting and the involvement of third party labour agencies (Peck 1996; Wills 2009). Precarious employment and poverty are major concerns in India because 92 percent of workforce of 457 million is estimated to be work in the unorganised workers. In India now a days Construction industry becoming the fastest growing sector after Agriculture. This Industry has become the second largest employment generator. India’s development will never be complete and meaningful until its construction workers is provided with gainful livelihood opportunities that would enable them to enjoy a decent standard of living.

INTERRELIGIOUS MARRIAGES: STRUGGLES AND NEGOTIATIONS IN KERALA SOCIETY
Marriage as one of the very important social institutions in our society has been integrally linked to religion and religious values. Further the institution of family too is organised around religion thereby making all the three institutions inseparably connected. Hence arranged marriages were considered to be socially acceptable and a prevalent norm in our society since ancient times. Marriage outside the caste and religion were beyond the normal order and considered as a ‘deviant’ behaviour. The favourable environment created by globalisation, urbanisation, modernisation, co-education etc, the situation has changed and people started marrying outside their caste and religion albeit strong oppositions from many quarters. The present study is focused on interreligious married couples and their children in Kerala with the aim of understanding their day to day life in Kerala society. Researcher tried to explore operation of patriarchy, power and gender justice in interreligious marriages. Subsequently the effectiveness of state and non-state initiatives for supporting interreligious married couples are also analysed. Researcher used mixed method approach for the present study. Data has been collected from both the couples and their children through separate structured and semi structured interviews. This study explores the social reality of interreligious marriages and its impacts on social and economic life of couples and their children. Despite the fact that, the progress of modern education and other developments in Kerala; interreligious marriages are still a taboo and not an appreciable one and also considered as the violation of traditional norms, values and customs. The negative impact of interreligious marriages are seems to be having high among educationally backward and economically deprived couples. Forceful conversion of women and denial of their rights are common in interreligious marriages. Religion, religious leaders and political parties plays a significant role among poor interreligious married couples and their children. This study unravels the multiple realities of interreligious marriages in Kerala.

Synopsis of Study
The purpose of the study is to measure the efficiency of health systems and to investigate the impact of job satisfaction and patient satisfaction on efficiency. In today’s healthcare environment, hospitals are facing an increasingly competitive and regulated environment and must work with great efficiency to ensure success. The challenges like high expenditure on health care, the rising demand for increased and better quality services, rapidly changing health technologies, the growing and ageing population, advanced information technology are placing hospitals under stress. In fact the performance of this sector is characterized by inefficiency, low productivity, stressed medical staff and dissatisfied patients. A number of factors contribute to the quality of care. The extent to which a hospital tries to achieve better standard with regards to these factors will reflect upon quality of hospital services. According to Dr. BM Sakharkar (1998), these factors are Hospital Staff, Physical Facilities and Equipment, Clinical and Service Facilities, Load of Work, Effective use of Beds and Hospital Administration. Within the above framework, the organization in terms of facilities and human resources, the service provided in terms of quality, quantity and cost, and the extent of utilization of the available facilities form the mainstay of a general evaluation. The effect of employee job satisfaction and patient satisfaction on efficiency of a hospital has not yet researched much. In Indian context efficiency studies in healthcare area is very limited. Therefore this study concentrates on the perception of employees and patients on hospital efficiency. It should add to the current body of literature as the effects of job satisfaction and patient satisfaction on healthcare productive efficiency. Consideration of these measures in this study allows for exploration of the factors assumed influencing efficiency from a new direction.

Synopsis of Study
FINANCIAL LITERACY OF WOMEN IN INDIA
Financial Inclusion has, off late, been globally accepted as a core driver of sustainable long-term economic growth. Since 2005, Government of India & RBI have launched several initiatives to bring about greater financial inclusion and women form a key focus group for this endeavor. However, financial inclusion is only one-half of the financial stability equation – its supply side. The demand side is reflected by Financial Literacy.

The OECD International Network on Financial Education (INFE) defines Financial Literacy as ‘a combination of awareness, knowledge, skill, attitude and behaviour necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve individual financial well being.’ Given their socio-economic status in India, women are more vulnerable to financial hardships, especially in their old age. Policy initiatives to empower women should not stop at job creation or inclusive labour policies.

An empowered woman is one who is a well-informed and confident decision maker in all aspects of her life, especially financial aspects. Financial literacy measures, in fact, go beyond budgeting and saving, attempting to reflect individual circumstances. Consequently financial literacy is relative to the ability to make effective financial decisions that best serve self-interest (Roy Morgan Research, 2003a, 2003b). The topic truly captures the overlap of social-economic and gender issues that underlie economic development. Given the enthusiasm of the government and the financial sector to usher in greater financial inclusion, there exists a clear need to assess the financial literacy of women and map their financial literacy needs against key factors such as age, income, academic qualifications, role in family, etc.

Synopsis of Study
The marginalised and the downtrodden communities in India still continues to be in a vulnerable state with respect to their livelihood. Though India is a predominantly agrarian economy and lion share of its population still depends on agriculture for livelihood they face the vulnerabilities and shocks the more. In this context, the proposed research intends to look at the various livelihood innovations in the field of agriculture and the role played by the institutions of local governance in promoting and initiating such innovations. The study is confined to the state of Kerala and have a look at the livelihood innovations in agriculture with a special focus on the role and participation of the rural agricultural labour collectives. The study aims at recording the indigenous innovations in agriculture and how is it been taken up. Due focus is given on the participation of agricultural labourers in this process not just as labourers, but as innovators.
