The article of S. R. Hegishte, “Rural Culture in ManojDas’ Cyclones”, illustrates English Studies by its analysis of Manoj Das, a postcolonial Indian writer. The author of the research study focuses on Cyclones, as a representative work in dealing with the social reality of rural India, its customs and traditions. Feudal families at their dawn and genuine villagers contribute to an authentic portrayal of the Orissa rural area.

Back to English Studies, Somveer’s article, “Resistance and Revolt in Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things”, tackles the sensitive and controversial post-independence situation. Theoretically enjoying democracy and progress, Roy’s India still faces a hegemonic system. In spite of this, resistance and revolt of the marginalized categories of society cannot be ignored, while societal salvation being possible by appeal to individual, human values of love, trust and tolerance.
Dr. Seena’s article, “National Consciousness in Kamala Markandaya’s The Golden Honeycomb”, focuses on the thematic of Indian nationalism versus colonialism as revealed in The Golden Honeycomb, with a further opposition between a life-denying social system and a personal value founded way of life. The national cause versus the colonial oppression means promoting the virtues of love, loyalty, commitment, and service against poverty, abjectness or human degradation.
V. R. M. Mohan and A.R. Paila’s article, “Use of Stakeholder Mapping and Social Network Analysis (SNA) for Assessing Project Formulation/Planning Effectiveness”, approaches the topics of social network analysis and stakeholder mapping in view of assessing project formulation and planning effectiveness in project organizations. The two tools are helpful in spotting connections that are relevant in the process of sharing information, taking decisions or triggering innovations within an organization.
“Development of Integrated Database of Neurodegenerative Diseases (IDND)” – V.V.Kandale, S.N. Mujawar, P.J. Welasly and J.M. Nimbalkar – informs on the working of IDND, a database storing information about pathways, clinical data, protein knowledge in biological processes related to neurodegenerative diseases. IDND is an integrated tool combining three distinguished databases – UniProtKB, KEGG and PubMed – allowing researchers to develop dynamic websites. The efficiency of all this is accumulating exhaustive and integrated information that can be accessed on one platform.
Coming from the field of anthropology, G. I. Barbhuiya analyzes the traditional knowledge of diagnosis and treatment of jaundice in the village of Mouman, Kamrup district, Assam, India, focusing on the popular approach to the disease. In his article, “Traditional Knowledge of Diagnosis and Treatment of Jaundice among the Pati-Rabhas of Mouman Village of Kamrup District, Assam, India”, the author remarks that symptoms are identified intuitively by villagers, based on chronological observations, while the treatment involves only traditional medicine.
The current issue of Review of Research brings under the sign of multidisciplinarity a number of valuable articles that definitely make a contribution to the international scene of academic research and open up new approaches to present concerns.
Therefore, we gladly invite professionals and the general audience to browse the articles and find answers to questions or problems that they themselves may ask or face.
