2. Research work on RBI and its credit control policy and instruments

The RBI most important goal is to maintain monetary stability - moderate and stable inflation in India. The RBI uses monetary policy to maintain price stability and an adequate flow of credit. Rates which the Indian central bank uses for this are the bank rate, repo rate, reverse repo rate and the cash reserve ratio. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised repo and reverse repo rates 13 times in the previous year. RBI also deregulated savings bank deposit rate with immediate effect. This step was taken to arrest rising inflation in Asia's third-largest economy. But this RBI's decision to hike short-term lending and borrowing rates could lead to higher interest rates and impact the growth momentum of the economy.

3. Experiment on human body

The scientific age it has been increasingly realized that the path to knowledge is through carefully-controlled experimentation. Medicine must never, however, treat human beings. As objects, or as the means to achieving increased knowledge. Ultimately the goal of human evolution will be served by the willing collaboration of members of society in the advancement Of knowledge through carefully planned experimentation. As of now, however, many safeguards must be built into the System to ensure that no exploitation occurs. Experimenters are charged with the task of designing the most ingenious experiments, to give maximum information with a minimum of trauma and always to ensure the fully informed consent of the participants. Human experimentation also brings about many legal problems, which need law intervention. Among these problems, there are the ones that should be regulated by criminal law.

5. Optimization of design parameters on shell and tube heat exchangers using flower pollination algorithm based on economic dispatch

In this paper, the main objective optimization on shell and tube heat exchanger is based on the total cost which includes operating cost as well as investment cost. The optimization is carried out using bat algorithm for the three case studies. Bats are the only mammals with wings and their behavior is based on the echolocation, which is useful for them to detect prey, avoid barriers, and locate their roosting crevices in the dark. The various design parameters presented are tube length, tube diameter, pitch size, baffle spacing, and a number of tubes. The results are analyzed and compared with previous literature. It is seen that the cost obtained from bat algorithm is normally equal with other algorithms. The objective of the paper is to optimize various dimensions of the shell and tube heat exchanger so as to get maximum heat transfer coefficient and minimum design cost as far as possible. The method used is Kern to find pressure drops and heat transfer coefficient.

6. Daylight harvesting system for office building

Daylight represents a free source of illumination of building’s internal spaces. Tubular daylight devices (TDDs) are simple means of directing daylight (diffuse and direct light) into interior spaces and underground spaces. Many predict models of TDDs have been developed during the past years, but most of them were established based on only a few experimental results of TDDs with no generality. In this paper, a new mathematics model on the basis of daylight coefficient method for TDDs’ light transfer characteristic was presented, which makes it feasible to calculate the time series of efficiency of TDD, and an energy saving analysis of an underground garage using TDDs was introduced in this paper based on Beijing daylight climate data, from which the huge energy saving potential of TDD was clearly shown.

12. Hydroponics v/s Geoponics

Since the advent of the civilization, the open field method of farming has been used for agriculture. In a country like India where agriculture yields about 23% of the GDP employing 59% (FAO 2018) of the total workforce, it is of significant importance that the farming techniques should be more up to date and that the country should take a stance on this serious issue. Day in and day out sustainability issues in land-based farming have been arising either due to poor harvest or because of insufficient profits caused by the lack of agricultural marketing. In such an environment, the paper thus explores hydroponics (a new farming technique) that can be implemented instead of geoponics (the traditional soil-based farming method).

14. Identifying difference in perception of academic stress and reaction to stress among engineering college students with special reference to Chennai city

Academic stress is mental distress with respect to some anticipated frustration associated with academic failure or even unawareness to the possibility of such failure. Students have to face many academic demands, for example, examination, answering questions in the class, showing progress in school subjects. The adverse effects on Health related to stress are enormous and it varies among each individual, probably because of differences in how stress is appraised and the effective strategies individuals use to cope with it. Stress is termed as a common element in life regardless of race or cultural background. The Emotional and physical ways in which an individual respond to pressure can cause mental and physical symptoms. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship exists between Academic Stressors & Reaction to stress among college students. The sample comprises of 190 engineering college students. Data were collected through Structured Questionnaire. Students Life Stress Inventory (SLSI) Gadzella, 2004 were the instrument used to measure the stressors & Reaction to stress. The Findings of the study revealed the highest group of stressors experienced by college students were ‘pressure’ followed by ‘Self Imposed’. The study reveals a negative correlation existed between Cognitive responses of the college students. Effective Stress Management Programme and Counseling session would be helpful to reduce the stress experienced by students.

15. The relationship between work-life conflict and turnover intention among employees in private service sector organizations, Chennai

"Managers tend to blame their turnover problems on everything under the sun while ignoring the crux of the matter: people don't leave jobs; they leave managers”. Travis Bradberry The present study aims at exploring the relationship between work-life conflict and turnover intention among private sector employees. Work-life conflict is a state where the role pressure from one domain is conflicting and restricts an individual to perform his responsibilities in another domain. Work-life conflict is a trending issue and plays a vital role in employee’s performance and eventually related to organizational performance. When the role pressure increases individual’s are unable to balance the situation and hence result in turnover. Hence organization loses its most valuable Human resources. The study uses primary data collected through structured questionnaire and collected data are analysed using SPSS. Statistical test such as descriptive and regression analysis are used to test the hypotheses. The results of the study proved that there is a positive but insignificant relationship between work-family conflict (WFC), family-work conflict (FWC) and turnover intention of employees.

16. Ethnographic account of the Tarao Nagas with reference to their origin and migration

Ethnography provides a scientific description of individual human societies from the unique perspective of individual human societies from a unique perspective that of the subject. The word literally means `writing about people groups`1. The topic of the present study is entitled as the ethnographic account of Tarao Naga, a tiny tribe of Manipur- basing on the historical review covering an area – origin and migration. The Tarao is one of the smallest Naga tribe of Manipur, least known and mostly ignored by the government, this tribe are not much mentioned in the long history of the state. Every land and people whether small or big have their own and unique ways of growing towards the civilization. The tribe had, however, an indigenous identity since time immemorial and yet till the dawn of the inhabitant of the Manipur state. Through the study of this their mythology and culture, one can clearly understand various unexplored lesson from them. The cultural heritage is disappearing day by day due to the influence of westernization on the traditional values system. The fear is that will there be traditional value to keep the Tarao identity intact.
