Abstract: The concept of disability and how a society will respond to it depends on the beliefs and perceptions of the society. Such beliefs and perception are shaped by society‟s cultural values and norms. Attempt has been done to highlight the people‟s perceptions and attitude held among the Meitei‟s towards Persons with Disability (PWD). Data were collected by using both quantitative and qualitative method. It has been found that perceptions regarding disability were deeply rooted in the mind of the Meitei people that still in this modern and scientific age people strongly holds the false perception regarding the causes of disability which has been linked to the old traditional cultural beliefs. It is also found that religion and caste status have favourable attitude towards PWD despite the fact that religions followed by the Meitei represent disability negatively.

Keywords: culture, disability, Meitei, perception, religion.

Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the attitudes of Sudanese students towards classroom interaction patterns which are essential in the learning process of English language. In Sudan most of the schools use the Grammar Translation Method to teach English language and students are not given the opportunity for authentic language communication. Thus students develop poor learning habits and become very passive and classrooms become teacher centred with little or no interaction. Students entering university are faced with different teaching method in university which require them to interact and communicate with each other in English. This research is a case study of English language students at the Faculty of Education/ University of Khartoum. A questionnaire was used..........

Title : Jihad In Islam: The Holy War Or The Miss Understood Concept
Country : India
Authors : Tahir Abdullah Lone
: 10.9790/0837-2212011416     logo

Abstract: Jihad is an Arabic word which literally means striving or struggling, especially with a praiseworthy aim. It can have many shades of meaning in an Islamic context. JihadThe word has entered into common usage in the United States in the wake of September 11, 2001. Politicians use it to conjure up terrifying images of irrational foreigners coming to destroy American freedoms; religious figures use it to define Islam. Jihad has even entered our everyday vocabulary, associated (by most non-Muslims) with unrestrained, unreasoning, total warfare. But what does it really mean?To discusses the various facets of "Jihãd" according to the Qur'an, and addresses the issues raised by critics who quote Qur'anic verses to argue that Islam is intrinsically non-peaceful. In my article, I will attempt to present the real meaning of jihad in Islam, as taught by the Holy Quran and practiced by the Holy Prophet (SAW).

Abstract: Academic performance of adolescents are effected by a number of factors such as intelligence, achievement motivation, study habits, home environment, school environment, interest and resources and many others. The most significant influence on adolescent is his or her relationship with parents. Parents assume special importance during the first years of life. As the infant reaches the stage of adolescence, he or she is fraught with many changes in- personality and adjustments with the world in different ways. It is the threshold of independent life and the emergent ego. Adolescence is a period when the boy and girl are still subject to the vagaries of parental whims on the one hand and wanting to break free from parental control on the other. In this arena of opposing forces and loyalties, confrontations and clashes emerge. While this can accelerate with tactless parental behaviour, it can.........

Title : Conflict in the Niger Delta:Assessing the Link Between Environmental Security And Political Stability
Country : India
Authors : Ekwutoziam Utulu || Chinedu Ogwus || Favour Obi-Okolie

Abstract: Since the 1990s, concerted efforts targeted at conflict resolution and peacebuilding in the Niger Delta region have mostly failed to achieve peace in the region. While several factors have been blamed for the failure to achieve peace in the Niger Delta, it is possible that inability to understand the exact causes of violence in the region is responsible for the difficulty in finding a workable solution. This study therefore attempts to tap into the relationship between environmental security and political stability in understanding the conflict in the Niger Delta. From a review of existing literature and the conduct of personal interviews, the study stresses that environmental insecurity is the primary determinant of conflict in the Niger Delta. It therefore suggests that until the environmental determinants of conflict in the Niger Delta are addressed, all attempts at peacebuilding in the region are bound to hit the rock.
