Abstract: Human communication is the process by which thoughts and feelings of one person are conveyed to others with the help of verbal and non-verbal symbols. This process also involves giving and receiving information, persuading others and improving human relationships. In spite of many technologically advanced tools used in communication, language remains the most important element in the process of communication. Communication has been in existence since pre-historic times, as it is a basic human need. As the skills of writing developed, the use of signs and symbols to transmit messages also developed and later, these were replaced with words that led to written script.Key Words: pre-historic times, Communication, human need

Abstract: The paper is depicting critical analysis of teaching-learning processes in science classroom. A self structured questionnaire and semi structured interview was used to collect data from a sample of science teachers. There are evidences that methods used for imparting knowledge to students are promoting rote learning in most of the classrooms. On the other hand critical thinking and skills find the central place in educational policy documents of 21st century. There is a strong linkage exists between the belief of science as body of knowledge and non-child centric classroom practices. To attain the goals of science teaching at school level, classroom practices need to be radically changed to a constructivist teaching-learning practices.Key words: constructivism, pedagogy, problem-solving, skills

Abstract: Health and disease are cardinal concepts of the biomedical sciences and technologies. Though the models of health and disease may vary, these concepts play a defining role, indicating what should and what should not be the objects of medical concern. The concepts are ambiguous, operating both as explanatory and evaluator notions. They describe states of affairs, factual conditions, while at the same time judging them to be good or bad. Health and disease are normative as well as descriptive. This dual role is core to their ambiguity and is the focus of this paper. In this paper I shall examine first the concept of health; second, the concept of disease; and third, I will draw some general conclusions concerning the interplay of evaluation and explanation in the concepts of health and disease. Key Words: Health, Environment, Disease, Physical Health, Mental Health, Social Health etc

Abstract: The secular deterioration in terms of trade hypothesis provides the demarcation between the then (Prior to 1950’s) view of trade as an engine of growth and trade to be not much contributing directly to the developing countries over the longer periods of time as growth and trade progress. In this paper we revisited the age old argument in the wake of commodity boom from 2000s onwards and the recent Pandemic Covid19 outbreak. The beginning of 21st Century sees strong demand coming out from BRICS and other developing countries for primary commodities; as a result there are some improvements in the term of trade of primary commodities. However persistent rise in primary commodities demand in progressing developing countries created long run supply chain issues thereby possess as a threat for rise in standard of living in developing countries. In this paper we have presented the Prebisch Singer hypothesis in precise form and look at the position of the hypothesis in present scenario.Keywords: terms of trade, trade, income elasticity, Institutions, development
