Susan Muthalaly Tamil Identity in Cinema During War and Conflict

9389 руб.
This book studies the representation of identity politics in the Indian Tamil film Kannathil Muthamittal, which deals with the Sri Lankan ethnic conflict. Drawing on the influential role of cinema in politics on the Indian subcontinent, and the perceived shared identity of the Tamil communities in Sri Lanka and India, the book researches the film in relation to the conflict. It discusses the differences in conception of the Indian Tamil identity and the Sri Lankan Tamil identity (in the film), and argues that the Indian Tamil is represented as politically and culturally superior and more empowered than the Sri Lankan Tamil. Using existing literature on identity formation and the socio-cultural history of Tamil identities of Sri Lanka and India as a reference point, the representation of the two Tamil identities in the film are analysed.

Intensive dairy production increases competition for labour in the existing farming system because dairying is more labour intensive than most of other farm activities. Also there will be competition for other scarce resources especially land in the peri- urban areas with the existing crop enterprises. Without proper information on alternative choices of enterprises and farming systems, the capacity of smallholder farmers to make appropriate decisions on how to allocate scarce land and labour resources is impeded. This book, therefore, attempts to identify and recommend enterprises and farming systems choices that can be adopted by smallholder dairy producers to increase productivity, profitability and competitiveness under varied market access.

The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera linn.) is the most useful palm in the world. Every part of the tree is useful to human life for some purpose or the other. Hence, the coconut palm is endearingly called 'kalpavriksha' meaning the tree of heaven. It provides food, drink, fuel and timber. Millions of families in India depend on coconut for their Livelihood either directly or indirectly. India ranks third in area and production of coconut in the world. The copra obtained by drying the kernel of coconut is the richest source of vegetable oil containing 65 to 70 per cent oil. Coconuts are generally classified into two general types: tall and dwarf. On very fertile land, a tall coconut palm tree can yield up to 75 - 100 fruits per year, but more often yields less than 30, mainly due to poor cultural practices. Traditional areas of coconut cultivation in India are the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Goa, Maharashtra, Orissa, West Bengal and islands of Lakshadweep and Andaman and Nicobar. Four southern states combined account for almost 92% of the total production in the country: Kerala (45.22%), Tamil Nadu (26.56%), Karnataka (10.85%) and Andhra (9 %).

Marguerite Ross Barnett The Politics of Cultural Nationalism in South India

5614 руб.
In this book Processor Barnett analyzes a successful political movement in South India that used cultural nationalism as a positive force for change. By exploring the history of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party, the author provides a new perspective on political identity. In so doing, she challenges the interpretation of cultural nationalism as a product of atavistic and primordial forces that poses an inherent threat to the integrity of territorially defined nation-states and thus to the progress of modernization.The founding of the DMK party in 1949, the author shows, was a turning point in the political history of Tamil Nadu, South India, because it ushered in the era of Tamil cultural nationalism. In the hands of the DMK, Tamil nationalism became an ideology of mass mobilization and thus shaped the articulation of political demands for a generation. The author analyzes the social, political, and economic factors that gave rise to cultural nationalism; the interplay between cultural nationalist leaders; and the role of cultural nationalism in a heterogeneous nation-state.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly...

Water and vegetation are vital for sustaining life. However, they are becoming more stressed following population growth and associated water demands. As a result, most continent discharges are classified as "moderate" to "highly threatened" by human activities, partly through water abstraction. Bwathonaro river in Meru, Imenti North District of Eastern Kenya is not exception. The river is experiencing over abstraction driven by a number of forces, including increased irrigation farming. Consequently, downstream flows have now reduced to zero during dry season, thus causing great effects to the riparian vegetation. The severity of the effects has necessitated the adoption of mitigation measures. This book describes measures taken to mitigate the effects of water abstraction on riparian vegetation of Bwathonaro river. With increase in management efforts, the results showed progressive amplification on timing and duration of river flow peaking and retrogressive behavior of riparian vegetation. The results are useful for planning and decision making on viable measures which can reduce the effects of water abstraction on the riparian vegetation of rivers with similar characteristics.

Agriculture is one of the most ancient and significant sectors of India, the only means of living for almost two-third of the employed class in India. It has occupied almost 43 percent of India’s geographical area. India is one of the major cotton producing countries, ranking 3rd after USA and China. Cotton accounts per 30 percent of agricultural Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in India and has the largest cotton area of 20 million acres. It provides livelihood to more than 60 million people in India. As agriculture is closely associated with the environment, it has a major impact on land use, soil, water biodiversity and the landscape and the intensive agriculture has disrupted ecological balance. Green revolution in India was ushered with the increased use of pesticide and increased input of agricultural fertilizers and using better farm techniques in spite of increase in food production, many of agriculture farmers of India are not aware of the environmental hazards occurred due to the usage of pesticides. The farmers of India are using one-third of pesticides that are consumed in third world countries.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Agrarian Studies, grade: 9.80, , course: Agri Business Management, language: English, abstract: STUDY ON PRICING VARIABILITY OF TOMATO IN WESTERN TAMIL NADU India is the second largest producer of vegetables in the world, contributing 14% of the total world vegetables production. In India, tomato is the most widely grown vegetable crop with a share of 10 per cent and occupies third position. In this crop we observe more price variation due to increased supply of tomato than market demand which leads to glut in market followed by price reduction. The above price fluctuation was found to be significant which affects the economy of small and marginal farmers who are mostly involved in cultivation of tomato. For the benefit and welfare of these farmers it becomes necessary to forecast the tomato price. Based on these forecast, farmers can make cropping decision and avoid economic losses. The study conducted in western Tamil Nadu for past five month revealed that tomato price will raise in April which is forecasted through three month moving average. These are the prices of 10 kg tomato in the following markets, Kinathukadavu-Rs.73.6, Pollachi- Rs.107.9, Mettuppalayayam- Rs.47.7, Oddanchatram- Rs.55.5. Farmers are using the traditional marketing channels for marketing the tomato though there are latest developments like farmers shandy (Uzhavar chanthai). Only minimum quantities of tomato are being sold through farmers shandy and re...

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. There are a number of reasons for global climate change, examples of which include the increased intensity of solar energy or the cyclicality of Earth's temperatures, volcanism, oceanic circulation cycles, biosphere impact, ultraviolet radiation variability, reflectivity, rotational variation, solar systemic changes, galaxy positional variability, albedo, human influence and so on. The present research analyse on the impact of climate change on major crops in Tamil Nadu. It is observed from the study more that there is no impact of climate change on major crops. The major crops present a very little change in the productivity due to change in climate. Their co-efficient of variations are more or less uniform except for cotton the variation in cotton is observed in the latter half of the period of study. Its rise in productivity may due to the adoption of new technology in cultivation and the use of modern implements in agriculture. Thus climate change has no direct impact of major crops.

The Indian agricultural scenario indicates that the food security for growing human population is paramount concern. This requires sustaining food production, which can be realized by increasing land and labour efficiency in agriculture through farm mechanization. Farm mechanization is considered to be one of the several pathways of agricultural development. In modern agricultural practices, mechanization of farm is needed from the view point of profitability of agriculture. A farming system cannot sustain with the traditional machinery. The mechanization of farm is also inductive to the diversification of the cropping system. The book will provide a venue for the sharing of practical application of existing systems and technologies as well as of strategies that will be most effective in tackling the very complex socioeconomic and environmental factors influencing the adoption and utilization of farm machineries.

The finite and fragile water resources of India are depleting while demands are growing rapidly in line with urbanization, population growth, and industrial development. Even in this situation, water continues to be used inefficiently in all sectors. The current institutional arrangements are no-longer adequate for sustainable water management. The current approach in the water sector emphasizes development of water resources and infrastructure under a top-down, supply-oriented and fragmentary framework. Fundamental reforms are required in the sphere of water development, allocation, delivery and management. The National Water Policy of India and state level policies considerably reflects the reform requirements in the level of water institutions. It is argued that, privatization of the water sector would enhance efficiency and sustainability in spite of it’s drawbacks which would affect poor communities in the society. The disadvantages of privatization could be controlled by private sector participation in the management and service delivery of water by the public sector.

The Constitution of India guarantees equal rights and equal opportunities to all citizens of India. In accordance with the provisions of the constitution welfare policy measures have been formulated and implemented with a view to ensure the upward mobility of the deprived sections of the Indian population. One of the most successful of these policies is the reservation policy for SCs/STs implemented by the Union and State governments. It is observed that the benefit of reservation policy is not evenly distributed and it mainly goes to certain relatively well off castes within the Scheduled Castes (SCs). Under these circumstances, in 2009 the government of Tamil Nadu enacted legislation for 3% separate reservation for Arunthathiyar communities in government jobs and admission in educational institutions.

Proteins are the most important and essential food components.The growth of the fish depends upon the quality of proteins in the diet. The scientific fish culture in India aims at a high rate of the survival and production of spawn,fry, fingerlings and table sized fish. The aim is achieved by fertilization of the ponds and by providing supplementary feeding to the fish stocks. But, in intensive fish culture systems where the density of spawn, fry and fingerlings per unit water area is kept very high the proteins and certain other nutrients become growth limiting factors. Present study analyzes the effects of various dietary proteins commonly used in the culture practices, on the growth and survival of the common carp spawn.

The analysis showed that farming is the major source of livelihood in terms of food security and self-employment for the farmers. Economic and environmental issues are increasing along with increase in area under organic farming. Organic and conventional farming were diverse in terms of land size, livestock holdings and resource use. Because of the labor intensive farming, the observed difference for labor use between organic and conventional farming was not high for particular crop. But the model selected cropping cycle for optimal production plan; labor use was lower in organic farming than conventional farming. Before selecting the appropriate cropping plan for optimal farm plan, local specific factors such as labor availability on time and market access for organic products are also crucial. Economic performance was higher at conventional farms whereas environmental result in terms of nitrogen and phosphorous surplus, organic farming has shown a better performance. Therefore, continuation of organic farming is crucial to support higher economic and environmental performance.

Environment, Climate change and their various impacts seems to have major share in many contemporary studies. Away from all these studies, talks, conferences on climate change, some tribes who were living in close association with the nature are silently struggling to adapt to this new climate change along with the various alien laws and rules implemented on them. This book is an outcome of intensive fieldwork among Lodha tribe in India on their ecological perspective, exposure to the ecological changes, adaptation to such changes, depletion of natural resources, implementation of forest laws, utilizing the ever depleting minimum resources and the cultural changes in the process of adaptation. The first chapter of the book deals with the theoretical aspects of cultural ecology. The second chapter deals with fieldwork methodology then the State of West Bengal (India). The fourth chapter is an ethnographic account of the village called Sirish Chak (Field area) while the fifth chapter is on the various mode of adaptation to the changing environment and the six chapter is on Cultural Changes in the Process of Adaptation followed by Conclusion.

This book analyzes the effects of refugees on the environment in the Dadaab refugee camp. It traces the effects of refugees in other parts of the world and how governments and international bodies have been responding to it. It is evident that the community living around the Dadaab refugee camp are aware of the dangers posed by human settlement on the environment management. Natural resources around the refugee camp have been declining every year due to influx of the refugees in the area who compete for the meager resources with the locals without replacing them and this spells doom to the community due to depletion of the resources which mainly support their life.

In current scenario population is mushrooming beyond imagination and it has mounted pressure on agriculture land. Then our prime responsibility is to use state-of-the-art- technology and focus on research so that even after less resources of agriculture, we could be able to satisfy the need of people. So in order to satisfy the need of peoples, we need to plan very meticulously. The planning issues are very much related to the availability of right kind of data. Planners and decision makers at micro level have to depend upon spatial and non-spatial data for optimal interpretation. So we propose a analysis of crop research in India by using data mining technique. In this project, we have analyzed agriculture related data to discover some knowledge to understand the farming system in India and also help in socio-economic and institutional constraint face by farming community. This project will help to better understand and evaluate data by creating graphics display.

Water is known to be a fundamental element of all forms of life. It is commonly used as solvent, for drinking, for cleaning purposes and various other ways. Needless to say, it has to be clean water. Water pollution on the other hand, decreases the water's usefulness economically and aesthetically. When water becomes polluted, it brings danger to our health and to the other living things. The most serious effects of water pollution are infectious diseases, which commonly occur in developing countries, where there is a problem with sanitation. Water-borne diseases occurs when microscopic causal organisms spread through water body,90% of the world diseases are cause due to water contamination. Groundwater and Surface-Water Interactions: As development of land and water resources increases, it is apparent that development of either of these resources affects quantity and quality of the other. Nearly all surface- water features interacts with groundwater. These interactions take many forms. In many situations, surface water bodies gain water and solutes from ground water system and in others the surface water is a source of ground water recharge and cause changes in ground water

Antibiotic resistance patterns of bacterial microbiomes isolated from the New Calabar River were used to build up models on the possible effects of environmental pollutants on antibiotic resistance. The microbiomes were obtained from water and sediment samples collected at georeferenced sites on the river. This is the basis of the microbiome biogeochemico-graphic information system (MBCGIS). A combination of nutritional and physicochemical factors is presented as support for the existence of microbiome antibiograms in ecosystems challenged with environmental pollutants.High incidence of antibiotic resistance in environments with pronounced industrial and human activities, suggest possible effects of pollutants on the ecosystem. A weak correlation (r = 0.28) between incidence of antibiotic resistance and faecal coliforms implies that the antibiotic resistance patterns of microbiomes may be due to factors that are not linked to faecal pollution. The presence of chemical pollutants may contribute to the risk of increased antibiotic resistance in the environment. Sustainable development demands rigorous legislation for the protection of natural water resources.

Tank irrigation systems of India are a century old. Tanks have been the main source of irrigation in many parts of India from time immemorial. Rainfall pattern is neither predictable nor uniform over space and the incidence of rainfall is also seasonal, occurring mainly during the southwest monsoon in most of the country except the rain shadow areas of the Western Ghats, notably Tamil Nadu. Tanks are one of the oldest sources of irrigation in India and the mainstay for the livelihood of many poor households. Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood in rural areas, which account for 75 per cent of India's population and 80 per cent of its poor, and in turn, irrigation is the base for about 56 per cent, possibly more of total agricultural output. Tanks in the Indian context were inextricably linked to the socio-cultural aspects of rural life and have historically been an indispensable part of the village habitat, sustaining its socio-ecological balance. In this regard the present study is contemplated.

Have neoliberal policies truly yielded beneficial effects for India? 'Two Decades of Market Reform in India' presents a collection of essays that challenge the conventional wisdom of Indian market reforms, examining the effects of neoliberal policies enacted by the Indian government and exploding the myths that surround them. In particular, the volume questions the perceived benefits of India's reform policies in the areas of growth, agriculture, industry and poverty alleviation, and examines how the government's focus on preventing a fiscal deficit caused a large-scale decline in development expenditures, which in turn has had a negative impact on the well-being of the poor. With its rich and insightful analysis, 'Two Decades of Market Reform in India' bravely shines a light on the true implications of India's neoliberal governmental policies, and provides a revealing indication of how policy reform since 1991 has, at times, detrimentally affected the general populace of India.

Water User’s Association (WUA) is a group of farmers, all served by a common source of water, join together to allocate, distribute, and manage water, The aim of establishing Water Users' Associations (WUA) was to develop a participatory irrigation management concept for increasing water use efficiency through the involvement of all stakeholders as much as possible in the various management activities. WUA allows farmers to perform activities that are more difficult or impossible to do individually. The creation of water users associations is justified by the participatory approach in water management to allow farmers to efficiently concentrate their efforts and means for joint actions aimed at the optimum utilization of water resources on irrigated and reclaimed lands.The purpose of involving a water user association in improving water resources management is not only to increase supply of irrigation water to farmers’ fields but also improve the quality of irrigation management practiced by farmers. Physical improvement when accompanied by improved irrigation management lead to improved irrigation efficiency, farming practice changes and increased economic benefits.

5202 руб.
The Earth's human population is expected to pass eight billion by the year 2025, while rapid growth in the global economy will spur ever increasing demands for natural resources. The world will consequently face growing scarcities of such vital renewable resources as cropland, fresh water, and forests. Thomas Homer-Dixon argues in this sobering book that these environmental scarcities will have profound social consequences--contributing to insurrections, ethnic clashes, urban unrest, and other forms of civil violence, especially in the developing world. Homer-Dixon synthesizes work from a wide range of international research projects to develop a detailed model of the sources of environmental scarcity. He refers to water shortages in China, population growth in sub-Saharan Africa, and land distribution in Mexico, for example, to show that scarcities stem from the degradation and depletion of renewable resources, the increased demand for these resources, and/or their unequal distribution. He shows that these scarcities can lead to deepened poverty, large-scale migrations, sharpened social cleavages, and weakened institutions. And he describes the kinds of violence that can result from these social effects, arguing that conflicts in Chiapas, Mexico and ongoing turmoil in many African and Asian countries, for instance, are already partly a consequence of scarcity. Homer-Dixon is careful to point out that the effects of environmental scarcity are indirect and act in combinati...

Draught animal power is a farm power resource that is available consistently at a low cost in most developing countries including India. However, the overall draught cattle population had shown a severe declining trend in India. Severity of negative growth rate in work animal population in the Tamil Nadu State was high compared to the national figures, which warrants their conservation. With this background, this book focused on draught cattle valuation at different market points, identification of factors influencing the valuation of draught cattle, development of index for valuation of draught cattle and arriving at co-variate and idiosyncratic risks associated with draught cattle maintenance. The readers of this book can gain an insight on the scenario of draught cattle market and breed-wise valuation of draught cattle that will help in assessing the price of the draught cattle. Also it focused on identification of the co-variate and idio-syncratic risks associated with draught cattle maintenance that will help academicians and veterinary practitioners to implement proper risk aversion techniques for the animal owners, thereby improving the sustainability of their livelihood.

Scientific Study from the year 2014 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, language: English, abstract: Root knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita, is an important nematode parasite of tuberose. A study was undertaken to assess the evaluation of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) against Meloidogyne incognita infestation on tuberose in vitro, pot culture and field conditions. Tuberose fields were surveyed for the nematode incidence in different districts of Tamil Nadu. Among the nematodes associated with the crop M. incognita caused severe damage to crop. Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria were isolated from soil samples collected from field and subcultured for further studies. The isolates were tested for their efficacy for plant growth promotion by roll towel and pot culture studies with rice plants. Among them, three isolates, viz. BT3, BT8 and BT21 were found to be effective in increasing the plant growth promotion when compared to other isolates. Biochemical characterization of the isolates revealed that the cultures were found to be the group of Bacillus spp. Liquid formulation were prepared for the three isolates with nutrient amendments, viz. glycerol (10 Mm), trehalose (5 mM) and the stickers, viz. starch (2%) and PVP (2%) and the antagonistic effect of different Bacillus isolates were studied against M. incognita in vitro.

Distress migration of the poor in rural areas to urban areas in the developing world has resulted in the proliferation of urban slums. These are areas characterised by poor housing, lack of access to safe water and improved sanitation, deplorable environmental conditions, among others posing adverse effects to human health and the environment as well. The lack of improved sanitation is particularly a big problem in slums because solid waste, excreta and untreated wastewater are discharged directly into surface water resources draining their catchments. In order to avoid pollution possibly derived from these sources, with implications for drinking water sources, it is necessary to understand the sources, composition and loads of chemical and microbial contaminants that emanate from the insanitary conditions that prevail in slums. This book looks at the extent of pollution of surface water resources arising from these sources and the best practices to address this issue.

In India, Maize (Zea mays L.) ranks fourth next to rice, wheat and sorghum. In spite of its maximum share in area, the relative contribution is much lower mainly due to extremes of water availability. Evolving varieties tolerant to drought offers low cost technology and is one of the most efficient methods of reducing crop loss, stabilizing the production and economic returns. An understanding of genetic architecture of such traits will enable the breeder to formulate efficient breeding strategies, which aids in evolving varieties tolerant to drought on sound genetic background. The monograph on genetic investigations on maize explains production of single cross hybrids, their evaluation, estimation of general and specific combining ability variances and effects, gene action and kinds of heterosis of hybrids for yield and morpho-physiological parameters under water stress.

In this book Processor Barnett analyzes a successful political movement in South India that used cultural nationalism as a positive force for change. By exploring the history of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party, the author provides a new perspective on political identity. In so doing, she challenges the interpretation of cultural nationalism as a product of atavistic and primordial forces that poses an inherent threat to the integrity of territorially defined nation-states and thus to the progress of modernization.The founding of the DMK party in 1949, the author shows, was a turning point in the political history of Tamil Nadu, South India, because it ushered in the era of Tamil cultural nationalism. In the hands of the DMK, Tamil nationalism became an ideology of mass mobilization and thus shaped the articulation of political demands for a generation. The author analyzes the social, political, and economic factors that gave rise to cultural nationalism; the interplay between cultural nationalist leaders; and the role of cultural nationalism in a heterogeneous nation-state.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
