Abstract: The concept of a career or choice of occupation begins right from the time children indulge in pretend play as a doctor, teacher and other professionals they see around them. Often children find themselves answering questions as to what they want to become when they are older. Although this process starts early, actual planning and decision making start in adolescence, the period between 13 and 18 years. It is a key developmental period characterized by several biological and psychological changes and requires the successful resolution of specific tasks like identity achievement. It is a stage where they struggle to find a balance between obedience and independence. Along........ .

Title : Jungal Balahu, the Legendary Hero of the Tiwas: A Historical Study through Oral Tradition
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Himangsu Sarmah
: 10.9790/0837-2312011518     logo

Abstract: Oral history or oral tradition has a great role to play as source in the rewriting of history. To study regional or local history one cannot always find specific written record or some archeological data. Over the years, a lot of attention has been given to the study of folklore as an academic discipline and oral traditions have served as the index for critical inquiry of historical records as well as source materials where such records are missing. The Tiwas or Lalungs are a scheduled plain tribe of Assam. The Tiwas mostly inhabit the areas of central Assam namely, Nagaon and Morigaon and also some areas of Dhemaji, Jorhat, Sonapur, and the hilly areas of Karbi-Anglong district. The Tiwas have a varied and colourful history. The Tiwas did not get due attention from the historians due to the lack of documentations and source materials that could be used as written records. The past of the Tiwas mostly survives in the form of oral traditions and legends. JungalBalahu, a powerful king of the Tiwas, is the symbol of cultural pride and glory. He had his capital first at Khala and thereafter at Sahari. Due to the lack of research,........

Title : Cultural Milieu, Situation and Attitude Represented in Modern American Drama
Country : India
Authors : Sunil N. Wathore
: 10.9790/0837-2312011922     logo

Abstract: As a reflector of the American scene, Death of a Salesman is not a unique case. A close look at American drama after Eugene O‟Neill reveals that the plots and the dramatis personae of representative plays show a similar relationship to the milieu. As Miller deals with the "little man‟ in American society, so Tennessee Williams explores the mind of the Southerner caught between an idyllic past and an undesirable present. Thornton Wilder dramatizes the ideals of small-town American and Edward Albee satirizes the middle-class suburbanite in the affluent sixties.........
