RESEARCH REVIEW International Journal of Multidisciplinary <p>RESEARCH REVIEW International Journal of Multidisciplinary (RRIJM) is an international Double-blind peer-reviewed [refereed] open access online journal. Too often a journal’s decision to publish a paper is dominated by what the editor/s think is interesting and will gain greater readership-both of which are subjective judgments and lead to decisions which are frustrating and delay the publication of your work. RRIJM will rigorously peer-review your submissions and publish all papers that are judged to be technically sound. Judgments about the importance of any particular paper are then made after publication by the readership (who are the most qualified to determine what is of interest to them).</p> <p>Most conventional journals publish papers from tightly defined subject areas, making it more difficult for readers from other disciplines to read them. RRIJM has no such barriers, which helps your research reach the entire scientific community.</p> <ul> <li><strong>Title: </strong>RESEARCH REVIEW International Multidisciplinary Research Journal</li> <li>ISSN: <strong>2455-3085 (Online)</strong></li> <li>Crossref DOI: <a href=""><strong>10.31305/rrijm</strong></a></li> <li>Frequency of Publication: <strong>Monthly</strong> [12 issues per year]</li> <li>Languages: <strong>English/Hindi/Gujarat</strong> [Multiple Languages]</li> <li>Accessibility: <strong>Open Access</strong></li> <li><strong>Peer Review Process: </strong>Double Blind Peer Review Process</li> <li><strong>Subject: </strong>Multidisciplinary</li> <li><strong>Plagiarism Checker: </strong>Turnitin (License)</li> <li><strong>Publication Format: </strong>Online</li> <li><strong>Contact No.: </strong>+91- 99784 40833</li> <li><strong>Email: </strong></li> <li><strong>Website: <a href=""></a></strong></li> <li><strong>Address: </strong>15, Kalyan Nagar, Shahpur, Ahmedabad, Gujarat 380001</li> </ul> <p><strong>Key Features of RRIJM</strong></p> <ul> <li>Journal was listed in <strong>UGC</strong> with <a href=""><strong>Journal No. 44945 (Till 14-06-2019)</strong></a></li> <li>Journal Publishes online every month</li> <li>Online article submission</li> <li>Standard peer review process</li> </ul> en-US (Mr. P P Kumavat) (Mrs. Asha) Thu, 16 Dec 2021 09:52:12 -0500 OJS 60 Populism, Media and Elections in Zambia: The case of the Patriotic Front in the 2011 and 2016 elections <p>This paper interrogates the intermingling of populist politics and the media in Zambia. It analyses populist tendencies the country’s 2011 and 2016 presidential elections. The examination of the 2011 elections considers this coming together of populist Patriotic Front (PF) party figures and the media through the lens of The Post Newspaper, representing ‘old’ media. The 2016 elections examination focuses on alternative media, particularly looking at how the PF utilised popular music and social media, to communicate its populist ideas. The analysis shows that the PF, with and without their populist founder Michael Sata, managed to maintain close ties with the media for their political success. Later, they were willing to utilise and harness the potential of alternative media to meet their objectives in 2016. The paper however warns that the merging of media with populism is a danger that heavily compromises the ability of the media to serve the public as they should.</p> Basil N.

The present paper investigates the gender role of Sahariya women in terms of their participation in the decision-making process and simultaneously elaborates their socio-economic and socio-cultural status. The major findings state that Sahariya women are relatively more active in the community than their male counterparts. Despite sharing the dual burden, the study revealed that the autonomy and decision-making power was confined to minor household issues only.</p> Anjana Singh Rajpoot Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 An Article on Growth of Smart Beta Fund Investment in Indian Financial Market <p>In 21st century people want each and every gadget and tool to be smart So do they need some smart investment strategies.

Thus, investments in increasing farm productions from small and intensively cultivated land are important for reducing global poverty. Based on primary survey, landholding size of Scheduled Caste population in different blocks of Azamgarh district were analysed for this study. The study shows that SC farmers still face economic deprivation in the form of small farm size that is detrimental to their social and economic growth.</p> Neeraj Singh, Azizur Rahman Siddiqui Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Impact of participation of women in Self Help Groups and their empowerment: A study on the women from vulnerable delta region of West Bengal <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> To examine the relationship between participation in Self Help Groups (SHGs) and the overall socio- economic empowerment of women. <strong>Results:</strong> The comparative study covering 234 women representing functional and non-functional SHGs highlighted that the poor and vulnerable women often become inactive. A significant relationship was found between women’s active participation in SHGs and its impact on women’s perception of their rights and gender stereotypes, household decision making, and participation in other development activities. Women did access finance, though in a limited scale, due to the fear of repayment and lack of opportunities. Although the ability to take action differs in both categories of SHGs, women continue to experience domestic violence. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Convergent effort needs to be undertaken to integrate gender equality and access to finance; to facilitate the process of empowerment of women through an inclusive method of forming, sustaining, mentoring and training the most vulnerable women in SHGs.</p> Sujata Mullick , Dr Anoop Khanna Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Yojana for the Last People of India : Objectives, Features and Benefits <p>The schemes of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay ji have been established for the development of the people of entire India.

Found in the upper reaches of the remote village of Padder, it is supposed to be of the best quality in the world, second to none. At once, unknown and unexploited, found in abundance with the locals, it came to be known as the wealth of Padder from the 19th century onwards, when it was gifted by General Zorawar Singh to Maharaja Ranbir Singh of Jammu and Kashmir. At present, the Padder sapphire is one of the most expensive gemstones in the world. However, it is known for more than its sheer and brilliance. It has, associated with it, deep historical, cultural, astrological and traditional legends and beliefs which lend to its significance. This paper, thus, makes an attempt to study the historical, cultural and economic significance of the Padder sapphire and bring to the fore the many facets of the Padder sapphire.</p> Dr. Jyoti Parihar, Prof. Haqiqat Chauhan Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Automatic Mask Detection at Public Places <p>COVID-19's fast spread has resulted in tens of millions of individuals becoming infected around the world. Because there is no specific cure for COVID-19, wearing masks has proven an effective technique of preventing transmission and is mandatory in most public places, resulting in an increase in demand for automatic real-time mask detection systems to replace manual reminders. However, there are just a few investigations on the detection of face masks. The performance of mask detectors must be improved urgently. However, there have been few studies on the detection of face masks. Mask detector performance must be improved immediately. The Properly Wearing Masked Face Detection Dataset (PWMFD) was proposed in this paper, and it includes 9205 photos of mask-wearing samples divided into three groups. Squeeze and Excitation (SE)-YOLOv3, a mask detector with roughly balanced effectiveness and efficiency, was also proposed. by incorporating the SE block into Darknet53, I was able to incorporate the attention mechanism and obtain the relationships between channels, allowing the network to focus more on the relevant feature. To increase the stability of bounding box regression, I used GIoUloss, which can better express the spatial difference between predicted and ground truth boxes. The significant foreground-background class imbalance was solved via focal loss. In addition, I used image augmentation techniques to boost the model's robustness on the challenge. In comparison to YOLOv3, SE-YOLOv3 outperformed YOLOv3 and other state-of-the-art detectors on PWMFD, achieving a higher 8.6 percent mAP while maintaining a comparable detection speed.</p> Aiman Ahmed Mohammed Al-Gamal Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Regional Imbalance in the Levels of Development in Bagalkot District- Karnataka: A Spatial Analysis <p>After independence India has made remarkable progress in the socio-economic status of the people. But the attainment of this has spread highly uneven among the urban and rural areas. Regional imbalances are common phenomenon in the world, which occurred across different continents, countries and regions in different extent and India is not exception in this context. This phenomenon spread among inter-regions, inter-states and intra-states n India. This resulted into uneven development in the country. This process of imbalance is not exception in Bagalkot district. There are three major rivers namely the Krishna, the Malaprabha and the Ghataprabha and their tributaries flow in the study area and play important role in the development of the district. However, the study reveals that there exists a wide imbalance in the level of socio-economic development in the region. In view of this, an attempt has been made in this research work to evaluate and compares temporal growth and spatial pattern of disparities in the levels of socio-economic development at block level in Bagalkot district. Correlation coefficient technique has been applied to understand the correlation between different factors which are responsible for widening the regional imbalance. To analyses the regional imbalance of six taluks of Bagalkot district, 23 social, economic and demographic indicators have been considered. The present paper is based on secondary information based on which the socio-economic imbalance among the taluks of the district is made with the help of composite development index for two time of point i.e. 1997 and 2017 data. It has been observed that the social indicator values varied from 11 to 27. The study period witnessed Bagalkot, Badami, Hunagund and Jamkhandi are the three taluks which represent high social development, whereas low (&lt; 11) social development was observed in Bilagi taluk. The outstanding causes for this backwardness are are, less number of education institutes, communication centers, adult education centers, health centers, family planning centers, recreational centers etc. The observed values of economic development are ranging between 19 and 35. It had been observed in only two taluks viz Bilagi and Hungund were found in high economic development, and low economic development was recorded in Jamakhandi taluk. Bagalkot, Mudhol and Badami taluks registered under relatively developed range. Lastly to understand the overall development, the observed values of socio-economic, economic and infrastructure indicators are added and derived a separate composite index.</p> Dr. L.T.

In this rapidly changing man-made environment the need of restoring the originality of natural environment becomes a deep concern for the whole mankind. Lack of awareness, proper knowledge among the common people regarding the conservation of environment and its resources can lead to different socio-ecological and environmental problems. Unless the environmental education is reached to the grass root level and cover all sections of people no efforts on environmental protection can be expected. Therefore environmental education is designed as a lifelong process covering all sections of people and it is expected that environmental education will provide a fundamental understanding of bio-physica1 environmental problems confronting man, how these problems can be solved with sound knowledge and attitude. The life-long environmental education is known as the non-formal environmental education and it is designed for any age group, participating in social, economic, cultural development of the community. The present study tries to discuss the importance of NGOs and its linkage with the secondary schools in environmental awareness and protection as the N0n-governmental Organizations constitute an integral part of non-formal environmental education.</p> Dr. Kabita Choudhury Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Environmental Governance in India: A Good Governance Perspective <p>At the outset good governance aims at providing responsive, transparent, clean and people-friendly administration.

It expresses the customs, way of life, food and sentiments of a particular country. Turkish folk music says the same thing. Tarkan finds a lot of mention in Turkish folk dances. In fact, Tarkan started taking special interest in folk-dances from the year 1928. The year 1941 was important in terms of changing the direction of Turkish folk dance. After the establishment of Praja Bhavan in the year 1950, the performance of folk dances had taken the form of a rich culture. Even more so, with folk-dance audiences now present in Ankara and Istanbul, folk dances were considered a new form of urban entertainment in the 1970s. In Zebeki's time there was a need to identify the national origin of every dance, but that need is no longer there. Dances were now seen as a national art form. The experience of Turkish folk dances reveals a new meaning of the word 'national'. This is different from the old prevailing servant definition of the word national. The folk dances elected in the 1970s and 1980s were national because they were amalgamated with Turkish territories. In other words, the folk dances that spread throughout urban Turkey in the 1970s were national in nature, while Tarkan-Zebeki envisioned them to be national.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Abstract in Hindi&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>लोक-संगीत, संगीत की बहुत सरल व सहज विद्या होती है। यह देश-विशेष के रीति-रिवाज, रहन-सहन, खान-पान और भावनाओं की अभिव्यक्ति करती है। तुर्की का लोक-संगीत भी यही कहता है। तुर्की के लोक नृत्यों में तरकन का काफी उल्लेख मिलता है। वास्तव में तरकन सन् 1928 से ही लोक-नृत्यों में विशेष रूचि रखने लगे थे। 1941 का वर्ष तुर्की के लोक-नृत्य की दिशा बदलने की दृष्टि से महत्वपूर्ण रहा। सन् 1950 में प्रजा-भवन होने के बाद लोक-नृत्यों का प्रदर्शन एक समृद्ध संस्कृति का रूप ले चुका था। इससे भी बड़ी बात यह थी कि अब अंकारा और इस्तांबुल में लोक-नृत्य के दर्शक मौजूद थे, 1970 के दशक में लोक-नृत्यों को नए तरह का शहरी मनोरंजन माना गया। जेबेकी के समय में हर नृत्य का राष्ट्रीय मूल पहचानने की जरूरत होती थी, किन्तु वैसी जरूरत अब नहीं रही। नृत्यों को अब राष्ट्रीय कला के रूप में देखा जाने लगा। तुर्की के लोक-नृत्यों का अनुभव बतलाता है कि ‘राष्ट्रीय’ शब्द का नया मतलब क्या है। यह राष्ट्रीय शब्द की पुरानी प्रचलित सेवक परिभाषा से भिन्न है। सन् 1970 और 1980 में चुने गए लोक-नृत्य राष्ट्रीय इसलिए थे, क्योंकि वे तुर्की के प्रदेशों से मिल-जुलकर बने थे। दूसरे शब्दों में जो लोक-नृत्य सन् 1970 में पूरे शहरी तुर्की में फेले, वे स्वाभाव से ही राष्ट्रीय थे, जबकि तरकन-जेबेकी ने उनके राष्ट्रीय होने की कल्पना ही की थी।</p> Dr. Rita Dhankar Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Geotourism Potentiality of the Rarh Region of West Bengal: A Geographical Outlook <p>Geotourism is currently being considered as one of the most promising sectors of tourism and is being practiced by many countries rich in this kind of tourism resource. India, as well as one of its easternmost states- West Bengal is blessed with hundreds of such tourism resources. It is being considered as a bright name in the geotourism map of India, drawing few domestic and international visitors. Through the present study, the author has attempted to make an inventory of notable geotourism destinations of Rarh region of West Bengal while assessing their tourism potentiality, strength, opportunity and threat applying the SWOT-AHP analysis of Saaty (1990). It has been inferred that this region has great potential to become a geotourism hotspot in the near future if sustainable planning measures are taken.</p> Mandal Tushar Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 15 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Detection of the Change in the Morphology of the Courses of the River Ganga Using Satellite-derived Data: A Case Study Area <p>This study seeks to examine the detection of course change in one of the major rivers of India, that is the Ganga, between the period of 1980 to 2020 and utilizes satellite driven data to demonstrate the visibility of shifting in its course. The purpose of study area is to find out the change detection of the river course. The channel shifting of the river course has been used to demonstrate the historical change in Landsat MSS, TM, ETM, and OLI/TIRS satellite images in the decades of 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010 and 2020. The study exhibits several reasons responsible for and lead to this shift, such as erosion problems and changing characteristics of the Ganga from Rampurghat to Chunar at different cross-section site points. This research area has been divided into six cross-sections, namely, XS-1, XS-2, XS-3, XS-4, XS-5, and XS-6. We attempt to examine how the river’s shape and position have witnessed a change during the 1980–2020 period via using remote sensing and GIS methods. We have identified that the course line of the Ganga has demonstrate a shift via using five types of satellite imagery in the above-mentioned period. The process of channel shifting has included an erosional and a depositional development occurred due to infrastructure damage by sedimentation, flood and changing river course. The Ganga course has shifted towards the south and the north direction places which as a result leads to village erosion. The major aspects of this study have a direct interaction with the physical and socio-cultural environment from upstream to downstream in cross-section. The course change detection of the study has been taken in the context of the river management and planning for future prevention of agricultural land, kuccha houses, food, and economic loss to farmers.</p> Mukesh Kumar, Prof. A.

In the Kol tribe, marriages are performed by many small rituals. Mandap Chhajan and Mayan Puja, Matrika Puja or Maati Mangal, the ritual of offering oil, Parchan, Janvasa, Dwarchar or Dwar Puja, Oli Bharai, Lava Parswai, Sindoordan, Mangal Phere, Kanyadaan, foot worship and Khobar. But in the present scenario, the role of the pandit in the marriage ceremony is visible from beginning to end. In the evening, men and women gather under the pavilion in the courtyard for entertainment, singing and singing with the help of musical instruments like dholak etc. Koldahka dances while playing. The groom resolves the bride to keep the promise. Always give advice to live happily with each other. After the marriage at the young age of the first bride, the gauna was performed in the third, fifth or seventh year when the bride became an adult. But now after becoming an adult, due to the marriage taking place, the cow is also done immediately. Remarriage among tribes is not difficult nor is it considered wrong.

In ancient times, although most Kashmīris were followers of Buddhism and Hinduism, in addition to these traditional religions, there was also an influential group ascetic mystics called Rishis in Kashmīr. They devoted their entire lives to abstinence (Nafs Kashi) and various spiritual struggles in order to control their desires of carnal self (Mujāhida’s). From the beginning of medieval times which is known as the golden age of Islāmic civilization and culture, the message of Islām spread rapidly throughout the world. In this regard, the group of Ṣūfīs played vital role in the whole Islāmic world. In Kashmīr, as in the rest of the subcontinent, Ṣūfīs made significant contributions to the propagation of Islām. The present article will examine the historical events of the medieval times, which are considered a milestone in the spread of Islām and the promotion of Islāmic civilization in Kashmīr.
