Title: A Study on Social Changes among Indigenous Peoples of Hill and Valley of Manipur
Abstract :

Social change among indigenous peoples of Manipur refers to any modification in the social organization of a society in any of its social institutions or patterns of roles. It is a complex, multi-faceted, all time and universal process. Sometimes it is sudden, though often it is gradual. However, the wheel of the social change cannot be stopped. Some societies accepted social change easily while some show rigidness in acceptance. The patterns and factors of social change vary from time to time and situation to situation which can be shown in terms of the elements of time and history in relation to a given society or social phenomenon. A scientific enquiry into the specific indigenous people of Manipur reveals patterns of social change.

Title: A Study of Economic Land Use Pattern Development with Special Context in Manipur
Abstract :

Economic Land Use Pattern Developed Manipur is a small but picturesque State lying between latitudes 23°50’ N to 25°41’N and longitude 92° 58’E to 94° 45’ E with an area of 22,327 Km2. Almost 90 percent of the geographical area is hills and the rest is the Manipur valley with sizeable water bodies. There are 9 districts - five in the hills and four in the valley. Tribes and communities of the State live in 2391 rural villages. The area is mainly inhabited by majority Community, the Meiteis, who today constitutes 59 percent of the total population and the uplands or hill areas are inhabited by 33 tribes belonging to Naga subtribes and the Kuki-Chins-Mizo groups along with some other tribes not strictly falling in the said groups- all summing up to 41 percent out of the total State’s population of 27,21,756. The land is rich in biodiversity and have adequate rainfall with rich and age old colorful culture.

Title: Academic Stress and Patterns of Adjustment among Tobacco users in Manipur
Abstract :

Smoking is inhalation and exhalation of the fumes of burning tobacco in cigars and cigarettes and pipes. Some persons draw the smoke into their lungs, others do not. Smoking was probably first practiced by the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere. Originally used in religious rituals and in some instances for medicinal purposes, smoking and the use of tobacco became a widespread practice by the late 1500s. Tobacco was introduced into Europe by the explorers of the New World; however, many rulers prohibited its use and penalized offenders. By the end of the 19th century mass production of cigarettes had begun, and the smoking of cigarettes became prevalent as the use of cigars and pipes declined. Despite controversy as to the effects of smoking and bans on smoking by certain religious groups, the use of tobacco continued.

Title: A Study on Potamological Profile of Sewage Fed River and its Effect on Biotic Population
Abstract :

On the other hand in the present investigation, the highest temperature noted at all the points was in June followed closely by July. However, taking an overall view of the condition it was found that during the study period maximum values were recorded at all five points from April to October with peak as started earlier in June. The minimum temperature is from November to March with minimum observed for the month of January. This can be explained due to the fact that in summer months the days are longer and the intensity of sun light is stronger while, in monsoon and winter, the days get shorter, cloudy and the sun light become comparatively weaker. This is in agreement with the study of several Indian workers on limnology.

Title: Physico-chemical Products and Oxidation of Some Organic Compounds with Chromium Oxidants
Abstract :

In the present work, the complexed oxidation products of propane-1, 2-diol and crotonaldehyde with TBC and TAC in various molar ratio have been studied. Out of the elements present (C, H, O & Cr) carbon and hydrogen were estimated instrumentally whereas chromium was determined by volumetric analysis. The possible formulation for the different products (complexes) obtained were tried with the help of empirical formula and the infrared spectra of the complexed products. We have taken TBC and TAC as oxidants for simple organic compounds like diols and enals like propane-1, 2-diol and crotonaldehyde. The products formed were analysed on the basis of elemental analysis, estimation, spectroscopic and thermal studies.

Title: Ideals of Religious Life in Buddhism
Abstract :

Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was born in around the year 560 BC in the sacred area of Lumbini near the ancient town of Kapilabastu in Terai region of Southern Nepal. He was the only son of King Suddhodana and Queen Mahamaya and the only heir to the Sakya kingdom. He was brought up in Kapilabustu by his step mother, the second wife of Suddhodana, as his mother Mahamaya died after seventh day of his birth. From his very childhood he seemed to have no attraction towards his princely life and was always found in a pensive and despondent mood. He would rise early in the morning, performed his morning activities and took his bath. Then he would go a solitary place for the practice of contemplation. His father tried his best to keep him away from these by marrying him and surrounding him with luxuries. He married at the age of 16 with his cousin, Yasodhara, and a son, Rahul, was born.

Title: A Study on Impact of Fire Ecology in Daily Life of Manipur
Abstract :

Fire ecology is a scientific discipline concerned with natural processes involving fire in an ecosystem and the ecological effects, the infractions between fire and the abiotic and biotic components of an ecosystem, and the role as an ecosystem process. Wildfire suppression not only eliminates these species, but also the animals that depend upon them. This view is based on the outdated beliefs that ecosystem progress towards an equilibrium and that any disturbance, such as fire, disrupts the harmony of nature.

Title: The Study on Sociological Environment in Manipur
Abstract :

Physic-chemical analyses of water samples from the lake clearly reveal degradation in the water quality due to over exploitation. Besides rise in the temperature and turbidity index of water, the water is found acidic in many areas. The concentration of dissolved carbon dioxide reveals very high values while lower values of dissolved oxygen clearly indicate oxygen deficiency in the water of the lake. These values indicate clearly the highly eutotrophic and deteriorated water quality in the lake. Some of the economic plants like Trapa natans, Nymphoides, Nymphaea and Nelumbo species have become endangered. It is noteworthy that people in the vicinity of the lake have started planting Trapa and Nelumbo in the various areas of the lake.

Title: Issues Related to the Management of Minor Forest Produce and Possible Solutions
Abstract :

Minor forest produce has great significance for forest dwellers in terms of livelihood dependency. These are a major source of income for people residing in scheduled and tribal areas and the areas near to it. The marketing system of MFP has resulted in the exploitation of the people who are dependent on forests for their income. There are several issues related to the management of minor forest produce like issues related to collection, procurement, processing and marketing etc. Government has taken many initiatives to deal with these issues at various levels. Some of the states like MP have prepared the roadmap to utilize and protect the minor forest produce in the larger interest of community and environment.

Title: Adoption of Improved Dairy Farming Practices: A Study in Kumaon Division of Uttarakhand
