    India is a global agricultural powerhouse. It is the world’s largest producer of milk, pulses, and spices, and has the world’s largest cattle herd (buffaloes), as well as the largest area under wheat, rice and cotton. It is the second largest producer of rice, wheat, cotton, sugarcane, farmed fish, sheep & goat meat, fruit, vegetables and tea. The country has some 195 m ha under cultivation of which some 63 percent are rainfed (roughly 125m ha) while 37 percent are irrigated (70m ha). In addition, forests cover some 65m ha of India’s land. While agriculture’s share in India’s economy has progressively declined to less than 15% due to the high growth rates of the industrial and services sectors, the sector’s importance in India’s economic and social fabric goes well beyond this indicator. First, nearly three-quarters of India’s families depend on rural incomes. Second, the majority of India’s poor (some 770 million people or about 70 percent) are found in rural areas. And third, India’s food security depends on producing cereal crops, as well as increasing its production of fruits, vegetables and milk to meet the demands of a growing population with rising incomes. To do so, a productive, competitive, diversified and sustainable agricultural sector will need to emerge at an accelerated pace. Labour is the most important input in increasing production in traditional agriculture. In the early stage of development, since land was available in plenty increase in labour supply led to the clearing of more land for bringing it under cultivation. Agricultural labourers are socially and economically poorest section of the society. Agricultural labourers households constitute the historically deprived social groups, displaced handicraftsmen and dispossessed peasantry. They are the poorest of the poor in rural India. Their growth reflects the colonial legacy of under development and the inadequacies of planning intervention in the past. The poverty syndrome among agricultural labourers needs to be read against such a background of prolonged rural under development, assetlessness, unemployment, low wages, under-nutrition, illiteracy and social backwardness constitute the poverty syndrome among agricultural labourers. These reinforce each other so as to constitute a vicious circle of poverty. The agricultural labourers are one of the most exploited and oppressed classes in rural hierarchy. It is one of the primary objects of the Five Year Plan to ensure fuller opportunities for work and better living to all the sections of the rural community and, in particular, to assist agricultural labourers and backward classes to come to the level of the rest.

    Climate change is an escalating global challenge that threatens food security and agricultural livelihoods. Unpredictable climate phenomenon has happened in around the globe in recent years. In the tropical region, including Indonesia, between rainy and dry season has become uncertain. And, the distribution of raining is uneven. Consequently, some region has resulted in the limiting supply of water, such as in a couple part of Central Java, causing dryness. In the face of this phenomenon, cassava emerges as a promising crop with inherent resilience and adaptability. Cassava has been a staple food for millions, particularly in tropical regions. Its deep root system enables access to subsurface moisture during droughts, and its sturdy leaves and stems resist the impacts of extreme weather events and pest invasions. This paper studied the growth response of cassava seedlings at drought stress levels and cassava varieties. The experimental design used was a completely randomized design arranged in factorial (4x2) with 3 replications. The first treatment was drought stress (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%) and the second treatment was cassava varieties (Ketan, Mentega). CI-340 Handheld Photosynthesis System was used to analyse net photosynthetic rate. The results demonstrated that the level of drought stress decreased the net photosynthetic rate, leaf area, root fresh weight, dry root weight but increased root length. Dryness of 75% resulted in 45.06 cm of length root. Cassava variety grown on an extreme drought (75% dry) produced lower leaf area (50 cm2). Stem diameter was bigger on Ketan variety (20.56 mm) compared to Mentega variety (19.54 mm). Number of roots of Ketan variety (42.36) was greater than Mentega variety (24.08). Fresh root weight and dry root weight were correlated with the level of dryness. The drier of media was the lower of root weight, with the result of 8 g for fresh weight and 3 g for dry weight. In conclusion, Ketan variety is more resilient than Mentega variety.

    Background: Millet is often referred to as a "nutri-cereal" because it is a nutritious whole grain that offers a range of health benefits. Millets are a group of small-seeded grasses that have been cultivated for thousands of years and are a staple food in many parts of the world, especially in Africa and Asia. Some common types of millets include sorghum, pearl millet, finger millet, foxtail millet, and proso millet. In Ayurveda, millets are recognized for their nutritional value and health benefits. Ragi, also known as finger millet, is a nutritious grain that holds significance in Ayurveda as well as in modern nutrition. Finger millet (ragi), are considered detoxifying in Ayurveda and they are believed to help eliminate ama (toxins) from the body. Method and Material: This review paper has been taken from different Ayurvedic classical text books such as Charak Samhita, Bhavprakash, Ahara dravygunkarmasangrah etc. and various modern and Ayurvedic research paper fromPubMed, Google scholar, SCI etc. Aims and Objective: Millets are gaining more attention these days but its significance according to Ayurveda is still unknown by people. The purpose of the study is to highlight the nutritional and health benefits as well as therapeutic potential of Finger Millet in Ayurveda and Modern Nutrition. Discussion& Conclusion: Millets are highly nutritious grain, having multiple health benefits as sell as they contribute to food and nutritional security of the country. They are referred as Nutri-cereals due to having number of nutrients which is required for normal functions of the human body. Ragi is high in fibre, is gluten free, having low glycemic index.

    Buckwheat belongs to the Family Polygonaceae, Genus Fagopyrum and Species Fagopyrum esculentum (Moench). Buckwheat is the common name for plants in two genera of the dicot family Polygonaceae: The Eurasian genus, Fagopyrum, and the North American genus, Eriogonum. In particular, the name is associated with the common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum or F. sagittatum), which is an important crop plant. Tartary buckwheat (F. tataricum) or "bitter buckwheat" also is used as a crop, but it is much less common. Despite the common name and the grain-like use of the crop, buckwheats are not grasses (and are therefore considered pseudocereals) and are not related to wheat nor other monocots. Locally buckwheat is known by various names, viz., dyat, dro, bro, fafar, in different regions of Ladakh. In other languages viz., English: Buckwheat, common buckwheat, Japanese buckwheat; Assamese: Doron, Phapar; Garo: phapar; Hindi: Kotu, Kuktu, Phaphra; Kannada: Kaadu godhi; Malayalam: Kadu godhi; Manipuri: Wakha Yendem; Nepali: Phapar. In NE region, buckwheat is locally called by different names such as Paphar (meetha Paphar: F. esculentum and teeta Paphar: F. tataricum) and Khuster in Sikkim; Jheem, Kyap, Brasma, Chikaw, Bherem, Jamu, Dunchung and Grunching in Arunachal Pradesh; Phapar and Demsi in Assam. Buckwheat (Fagopyrum spp.) is grown as a subsistence crop in the mountainous areas of Asia. The tartary buckwheat (F. tataricum), because of its frost tolerance, is generally grown at the higher altitudes whereas common buckwheat (F. esculentum) is grown at the lower altitudes. The crop is a pseudocereal. The seeds (strictly achenes) are usually classified among the cereal grains because of their similar uses. An important crop of marginal lands, buckwheat, is grown in nearly every country that cultivates grain crops and is usually consumed locally, but it is especially important in colder regions of high altitude or high latitude in Asia. The distribution of Fagopyrum spp. has been reported from the states of Sikkim, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur and Nagaland in the Northeastern Region. The crop seeds (strictly achenes) are usually classified as pseudo-cereal and are cultivated at different altitudes in Arunachal Pradesh. The Monpas and Sherdukpen tribes of the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh use the grain as a staple food since rice cannot be grown at this altitude due to physiological problems. The grain is generally used as human food, animal/poultry feed, cover crop, with the dehulled groats being cooked as porridge and the flour used in the preparation of pancakes, chapattis, biscuits, noodles. Buckwheat noodles are a typical delicacy in Japan and are even served on Japanese international airlines. Although buckwheat is a dependable and high-yielding honey plant, it normally produces nectar only during the morning and bees are unable to complete a full day of nectar collection. This crop is a good source of honey production because the buckwheat flower produces a good quality of honey. In some areas jang, a local beer made from Tartary buckwheat, demands a higher price because of its medicinal effects. This crop helps in soil binding and checks soil erosion during the rainy season. It is considered a sustainable crop for supporting the livelihoods of millions of hill populace under changing climatic conditions in future. In the higher Himalayan region of India (4500 amsl), this is the only crop grown and occupies about 90% of cultivated land as a pure crop. It has the potential to produce reasonably good yield under rainfed condition of Himalayan eco- system when soil moisture is not able to support any kind of crop cultivation. Common buckwheat is gaining more popularity in the Himalayan region due to its palatable taste and shorter growing period as compared to tartary buckwheat. Buckwheat has the potential for fixing atmosphere nitrogen and solubilizing native soil phosphorus and potassium. It thrives well under poor soil fertility conditions. In this review article on Origin, Domestication, Taxonomy, Botanical Description, Genetics and Cytogenetics, Genetic Diversity, Breeding, Uses, Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Buckwheat are discussed.

    Teff belongs to the Grass or Poaceae Family (formerly Gramineae), sub‐family Chloridoideae, tribe Eragrostideae and genus Eragrostis and species Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter. The genus contains about 300 species. The word ‘teff’ originates from the Amharic word ‘teffa’ which means ‘lost’ due to the small size of the grain or from the Arabic word ‘tahf’ used by the Semites in South Arabia. The word ‘teff’ comes from the Ethiopian word ‘teffa’, which means ‘lost’ because of its minute grain size. Teff grains are manually harvested by sickles and threshed with ox tramping on them. It was estimated that 25-30% of teff would be lost before and after harvest, and lodging may contribute to the yield loss up to 30%. The high losses along the production processes can reduce the available quantity of teff by up to 50%. Common names of Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter in English are Tef, Teff, Teff grass, Williams lovegrass, Abyssinian lovegrass, Lovegrass, Annual Bunch Grass, Warm Season Annual Bunch Grass. Also written as: Ttheff, Tteff, Thaff, Tcheff, Thaft, Tcheff. It is also known by the vernacular names tafi in Oromigna and taf in Tigrigna. The species in the genus Eragrostis generally range from diploid (2x = 2n = 20) to hexaploid (2x = 6x = 60). Tef is an allotetraploid species (2n = 4x = 40) originating from the hybridisation of two distinct species followed by diploidisation. Tef (Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter) is a crop for which Ethiopia is the center of origin and diversity. Tef is endemic to Ethiopia and its major diversity is found only in this country. Tef is a fine grain that comes in a variety of colors, from white and red to dark brown. The exact date and location for the domestication of tef is unknown, it is native and an important cereal crop to Ethiopia which is believed to be originated between 4000 and 1000 BC. However, there is no doubt that it is a very ancient crop in Ethiopia, where domestication took place before the birth of Christ. Teff grain is the smallest of all whole flour grains in the world with a length of about 1.0 mm and a width of about 0.60 mm. The average thousand grain weight of teff kernels is only 0.26 g. The grain color ranges from a light ivory to very dark reddish brown depending on the variety. However, when the whole grain is finely ground, the difference in flour color becomes less noticeable. This may indicate that the pigmenting compounds of the brown teff grains are mainly accumulated on the grain pericarp. Ethiopians primarily use teff to make their national dish known as ‘’injera’’. Injera is a type of sourdough-risen flatbread which looks like a flat pancake with a unique sponge-like texture. Traditionally it is eaten with a range of different toppings such as stews, salads or sauces. However, like a pancake, there are a great number of ways and possible toppings to eat injera with. Teff is a labour-intensive crop and requires significant soil preparation to ensure even sowing and proper seed depth. Additionally, harvesting, threshing, and winnowing are often done by hand, and the tiny seeds are tedious to handle and transport without loss. Regarding cultivation “Teff” need special attention in contrast to other crops. Indigenous knowledge practiced by farmers were shown the preparation of farmland, weeding time and style, harvesting time and style, why pilled after harvest, preparation of “Awudima” for threshing and the purpose of grain stored. Ethiopian farmers were inherited this indigenous knowledge from their families (father and grandfather) and local communities. In Ethiopia, farmers’ indigenous knowledge on “Teff” production and management system were immemorially practiced. Ethiopian mothers and consumers obviously prefer and accordingly pay higher price for “Teff” grain stored for long period. They were mentioned that the qualities of such grain for making “Injera”. In conclusion, “Teff” grain most commonly is consumed after being stored for several months and only a rare case or in critical food problem that it would be used immediately after harvest. This indigenous knowledge has already been inherited from their families for several generations. Respondents and many generations of farmers before them, have always harvested, put sheaves of “Teff” on the farmland “Dekel”, pilled “Zememen” and finally pilled “Teff” at threshing site. In this review article on Origin, Domestication, Taxonomy, Botanical Description, Genetics and Cytogenetics, Genetic Diversity, Breeding, Uses, Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Teff or Ethiopian Millet are discussed.

    Peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd) is a chloroplast-replicating RNA that infects peach trees and is known to cause a range of symptoms in its native host, including peach calico and peach mosaic. In this study, 58 isolates from Türkiye and Greece, were subjected to the haplotype network and phylogenetic analysis. A total of 51 haplotypes were detected out of the 58 analyzed sequences, resulting in a haplotypic diversity of 0,99516. Among the populations, the highest number of haplogroups was seen in the Italian population. Phylogenetic analysis revealed two main clusters. Virtual RFLP demonstrated that the BstEII endonucleae can differentiate some of the isolates. These findings demonstrate the variability in the genetic diversity of the populations of Peach latent mosaic viroid in different geographical regions and the importance of identifying and preventing its spread. Therefore, peach farmers in these countries must monitor their crops regularly for the presence of the viroid and take appropriate measures to prevent its spread and manage its impact on their yields.

    Pests such as weeds, pathogens and insects represent a problem for agricultural crops since they significantly reduce crop production. To protect the agricultural crops use significant amounts of synthetic pesticides around the world. However, these chemical compounds have been toxic into the living systems. Thus, new natural pesticides are being investigated which are friendlier to the environment and few effects on human health.

    Introduction: Listeria monocytogenes commonly causes food borne infection which is usually harmless but it causes infection in vulnerable group like pregnant women, neonates, elderly and patient suffering from malignant condition or having co-morbidities like COPD and diabetes or on immunosuppressive drug. Listeriosis in neonates can be classified as early onset or late onset. While the early onset disease is due to an in utero infection resulting in abortion, still birth, premature delivery or septicemia, the late onset form occurs due to exposure to organism during vaginal delivery or by cross infection within the nursery. Case Report: Here we report a 1 and ½ month old male child (weight-2.14kg) presented with fever, vomiting and diarrhea and diagnosed as severely malnourished with acute gastroenteritis with severe dehydration and shock with septicemia due to listeria monocytogenes and responded adequately to appropriate antimicrobial therapy. Conclusion: This case highlights the ultimate importance of early identification and timely application of appropriate antibiotics. We need to be more vigilant especially with high risk population with unknown case of fever. This case shows that it is important not to reject “gram positive bacilli” as contaminants without careful examination and correlation with clinical history of the patient.

    Background: Apheresis is a procedure where blood is withdrawn from donor or a patient in anticoagulant solution and separated ex vivo into one or all components using automated cell separators. Single donor platelets (SDP) are prepared by plateletpheresis machine. In this, blood is withdrawn from a single donor and then the platelets are retained and remaining constituents are returned to donor.. SDP concentrate increases platelet count by 30,000 to 40,000/µL. Methods: The present study was conducted prospectively in the Department of Pathology in collaboration with Immunohematology and Blood Transfusion Department and Department of Biochemistry, Pt. B.D. Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Rohtak in 78 healthy plateletpheresis donors over a period of one year. All donors were male. Results: We observed statistically significant decrease in pre and post donation platelets (p value= 0.001), hemoglobin and hematocrit. A statistically significant increase was noted in pre and post donation PDW (p value=0.001). The decrease in serum ionized calcium levels before start of procedure, during and 30mins after the procedure were statistically significant (p value= 0.001, 0.001 and 0.04 respectively).However, non significant increase was noted in pre and post donation MPV and WBC values and decrease in RBC values. The adverse reactions were noted in 7.69% (6) donors which were due to anticoagulant used and managed conservatively by giving oral calcium tablet to donor. Conclusion: Plateletpheresis is a safe procedure for donors. The study concluded that appropriate counselling and selection of plateletpheresis donors should be done. Also, close monitoring and follow up of donors should be carried out to prevent any unfavourable event.

    Implantation is a highly organized process that involves an interaction between a receptive uterus and a competent blastocyst. In humans, natural fecundity suggests that the chance of conception per cycle is relatively low (~30%) and two-thirds of lost pregnancies occur because of implantation failure. Defective implantation leads to adverse pregnancy outcomes including infertility, spontaneous miscarriage, intrauterine fetal growth restriction, and preeclampsia. Theuse of advanced scientific technologies, gene expression analysis, and genetically engineered animal models have revealed critical cellular networks and molecular pathways. However, because of ethical restrictions and the lack of a mechanistic experiment, comprehensive steps in human implantation.Have not completely understood. This review primarily focuses on the recent advances in mechanisms of implantation. Because infertility is an emerging issue these days, gaining an understanding of the molecular and hormonal signaling pathway will improve the outcome of natural pregnancy and assisted reproductive technology.

    Le bassin arachidier sénégalais est l’une des zones agroécologiques les plus importantes pour l’agriculture. Les cultures vivrières y occupent une place importante. Dans les systèmes de culture à base de mil, la production agricole est faible à cause de plusieurs facteurs parmi lesquels la pression des adventices. Il est donc important d’élaborer des stratégies de gestion de l’enherbement pour contribuer à l’amélioration de la production. L’élaboration de ces stratégies passerait par une meilleure connaissance de la flore adventice. C’est dans cette optique que cette étude a été entreprise pour caractériser l’enherbement dans les parcelles de mil. Sur le plan floristique, 142 relevés phytosociologiques des adventices des cultures du mil ont été réalisés selon la méthode du "tour de champs" durant les campagnes agricoles 2020 et 2021 dans la commune de Niakhène situé dans le nord bassin arachidier. Cet inventaire a permis de recenser 103 espèces, 72 genres et 31 familles avec une dominance des Dicotylédones (75,73%). Les Fabaceae (21,33%), Poaceae (17,42%), Convolvulaceae (7,79%), Malvaceae (6,75%) et Rubiaceae (5,82%) sont les familles les plus représentées. Le type biologique des espèces recensées est nettement dominé par les thérophytes avec 77,66%. Sur le plan de la répartition phytogéographique, les espèces d’origine africaine sont dominantes. Elles regroupent près de 43,68% des espèces répertoriées suivies des espèces à affinité pantropicales avec 28,16%. L’analyse de l’indice partiel de nuisibilité (IPN) révèle que 36 espèces réparties dans 3 groupes présentent une nuisibilité prononcée à la culture du mil. Les espèces Merremia pinnata, Hibiscus cannabinus Digitaria horizontalis, Crotalaria podocarpa, Bulbostylis hispidula, Cyperus rotundus, Spermacoce stachydea, Phyllanthus pentandrus et Eragrotis tremula ont un IPN plus important. Ces espèces adventices doivent faire l’objet d’une stratégie de gestion efficace pour améliorer les rendements du mil.

    This study aims to explore the possible relationship between economic growth and pollutant emissions in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Specifically, the focus will be on three pollutants: nitrogen dioxide (NO_2 ), particulate matter (PM10) and sulphur dioxide (SO_2 ). The results of Sequential Mann-Kendall test statistics indicate that per capita GDDP has been increasing since 2015, which is statistically insignificant. However, there is a significant SQ-MK change point for pollutant emission levels in this analysis. The study also shows that economic growth correlates with higher levels of pollutant emissions. According to the study, there is a significant negative relationship between per capita GDDP and nitrogen dioxide concentration, with a correlation coefficient of -0.72. The study also found a negative correlation between GDDP and particulate matter (PM10) concentration, with a correlation coefficient of -0.3. Furthermore, the study suggests a strong negative correlation between GDDP and sulphur dioxide concentration in the context of Dhanbad, with a correlation coefficient of -0.8. According to the EKC analysis, nitrogen dioxide concentration, particulate matter (PM10) concentration, and sulphur dioxide concentration exhibit a statistically significant U-shaped Environmental Kuznets Curve.

    This research model explored different time series modelling approach over Crude oil prices. In time series analysis, we assume that the current price of crude oil reflects the effect of all the influencing factors. So that the price forecasting of the crude oil can be done using the past crude oil prices. The main assumption in this time series modeling is that the past crude oil prices can be used to predict the future crude oil price. Although the time series analysis can find the trend, there will be limitations to the forecasting capability of the model that we use in the analysis when the reversal in trend is observed in the data taken or the pattern repeated may not be followed by the future prices. Different types of trend patterns such as increasing trend, decreasing trend or periodic patterns can be obtained. Time series analysis is more useful and will give better forecasting only when the data follows any of these trends. In this work, data analysis on crude oil data set is performed. A novel time-series forecasting approach based on Auto-Regressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) model, Seasonal Auto-Regressive Moving Average (SARIMA), ARCH (Auto Regressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity) model, GARCH (Generalized Auto Regressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity) are also proposed using the R programming language for statistical computing and graphics. The results will help the researchers from various community to gauge the trend and improvise containment strategies accordingly.

    Aim: To show association between Hyperuricemia and Hypertension. Introduction: Hyperuricemia has recently emerged as an independent risk factor in the development of hypertension. The various mechanisms has shown association between hypertension and hyperuricemia. That includes uric acid induced activation of renin-angiotensin system and action on glomerular apparatus, increased insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, causing decreased excretion of uric acid and uric acid induced proliferation of vascular smooth muscle, endothelial dysfunction with decreased nitric acid production. Various clinical trials shown potential role of uric acid lowering agents in management of hypertension. However, there are numerous confounding factors that is associated with hypertension and hyperuricemia like diabetes mellitus, smoking and alcohol intake. Materials and Method: Case control study done in Noida International Institute of Medical Science, Greater Noida on 120 patients in the department of medicine on both outpatient and inpatient patients, from January 2023 to December 2023. Studies include 60 cases with history of hypertension and 60 normotensive controls. Uric acid value determined in all patients and association established between hypertension and hyperuricemia. Results: Among 60 cases of essential hypertension, majority of the patients 33 (55%) were in Stage II hypertension and 12(20%) cases were in Stage I hypertension. Also, there were 18 (30%) essential hypertension cases with duration of more than 5 years and 30 (50%) cases with less than 5 years duration of the disease. Serum uric acid mean among cases was found to be 6.4 and in the control group was 5.2 . This difference in serum uric acid between the cases and the controls were found to be statistically significant. Conclusion: It can be concluded that hyperuricemia is significantly associated with hypertension and hyperuricemia-hypertension risk relationship is present in patients irrespective of metabolic syndrome.

    Background: Hinami (wet cupping) is not a conventional therapy for post-stroke complications, but it might have some additional benefits on early rehabilitation. Aim of the work: to test if wet cupping had an effect in management of early post-stroke complications. Methodology: One hundred twenty subjects presented with acute stroke, were asked to participate in the study. They divided into two equal groups: the first received conventional post-stroke care; and the second received conventional post-stroke care plus wet cupping. Then patients were assessed by the national institute of health stroke scale (NIHSS) index for neurologic deficit evaluation; the Fugl-Meyer assessment (FMA) scale for motor functions, the rate of recovery based on the bedside swallowing assessment (BSA), the mini-mental state examination (MMSE) and Montreal cognitive assessment (MoCA) for cognitive function, and adverse reaction of wet cupping were documented for safety evaluation. Results: There was statistically significant decrease in pain intensity in both wet and dry cupping. But the results were better with wet cupping technique. Conclusion: Significant use of cupping technique as a therapeutic model in treatment of discogenic low back pain

    Background: Unlike the vascular complications of diabetes mellitus(DM) which are life threatening, rheumatological manifestations lead to considerable morbidity and their treatment can result in significant improvement in the quality of life. Some of these have a close association with DM and may lead to the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed DM. This study aims to find out the prevalence of rheumatological manifestations in DM so that the commonly associated conditions can be looked for and early treatment ensured. Methods: A cross-sectional study was done over 1 year in patients with diabetes mellitus in a tertiary care centre in North Kerala. History and relevant details were collected using a questionnaire and physical examination was carried out to look for rheumatological manifestations. Investigations were done whenever necessary. Statistical analysis of the data was done. Results: This study included 219 patients with a mean age of 60.98 years. 139 patients (63.4%) were having some form of rheumatological manifestations. There was statistically significant association between duration of diabetes and the presence of conditions such as frozen shoulder, charcot’s joint, cheiroarthropathy, flexor tendinitis, dupuytren’s contracture and osteoarthritis. Conclusions: There is a definite increased prevalence of rheumatological manifestations in people with DM and the prevalence increases with duration of diabetes. There was statistically significant association between the rheumatological manifestations and the microvascular complications of DM. Osteoarthritis was the most prevalent manifestation but the older mean age of our study population may have acted as a confounding factor. Keypoints • There is increased prevalence of rheumatological manifestations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus • Prevalence increases with duration of diabetes • There was statistically significant association between duration of diabetes and the presence of conditions such as frozen shoulder, charcot’s joint, cheiroarthropathy, flexor tendinitis, dupuytren’s contracture and osteoarthritis. • There was statistically significant association for rheumatological manifestations like frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, flexor tendinitis, charcot’s joint and osteoarthritis with the microvascular complications of diabetes.

    Collagen is the most abundant protein in many living organisms and plays an important structural role in determining the mechanical properties and shape of biological tissues. Since its discovery, collagen has been actively researched for cosmetic applications, successfully used in microplastic surgery, as a component of cosmetic products, and as a dietary supplement for anti-aging effects. The increased demand for cosmetics with collagen has generated the need for further studies in this domain. The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of collagen in dermocosmetology and to compare the effectiveness of collagen peptides for oral use and topical use of preparations containing collagen. An analysis of the published studies on the subject was carried out, comparing the effectiveness of using collagen in different ways to improve skin conditions. Part of the investigation was a review of the scientific literature on collagen as a material for improving skin characteristics, the history of the discovery of this protein, its structural characteristics, its chemical composition, its general systemic and topical applications, the sources of collagen, and how it penetrates the skin. The concept of hydrolyzed collagen and its antioxidant properties are considered. The methods of investigating and monitoring the safety of cosmetic preparations are described. It has been concluded that topical collagen, similarly to nutraceutical supplements with collagen peptides, can slow down and reduce the signs of skin aging and can increase skin elasticity, density and moisture in equal measure. No side effects have been reported with the use of the medications. In addition, collagen was a safe component of drugs for local and internal use. Although the harmlessness of collagen is beyond doubt and has been confirmed by studies, the effectiveness of using one type of collagen or another requires further investigation.

    Introduction: Tricuspid regurgitation encountered in clinical practice are secondary in nature and related to tricuspid annular dilation and leaflet tethering in the setting of RV remodeling caused by pressure or volume overload (or both) and myocardialinfarction. Secondary TR is commonly seen in late stage of heart failure due to rheumatic or congenital heart disease with pulmonary artery hypertension, as well as in other type of left sided valvular disease. The current casewe are reporting is abnormally RA enlargement in mitral stenosis with mitral valve replacement. Case Report: A 50-year-old male presented with a complaint of progressive weight gain and painful swelling of the lower extremities.he had abdominal fullness, diminished appetite and muscle wasting. On detailed clinical examination and relevant investigation, we found that the cause of progressive weight gain was tricuspid regurgitation secondary to PAH which is due to MS (old). Discussion: tricuspid regurgitation is common finding in untreated or incompletely treated MS as it led to raised pulmonary artery pressure. Early identification of the disease and its cause is critical, to consider the entire clinical presentation for correct diagnosis which is generally delayed due to the overlapping symptoms of the disease with various specialties. Conclusion: Diagnosis and management of tricuspid regurgitation with dilated RA still present considerable challenges and patients warrant referral to higher centers. Its diverse presentation warrants a complete Respiratory, cardiac, and general physical examination.

    Introduction : The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a disorder in which the immune system gradually fails and life-threatening opportunistic infections and malignancies proliferate, is brought on by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a lentivirus (a member of the retrovirus family).Naturally C-Reactive Protein being an acute phase reactant should increase in patients with HIV disease progression if it is associated with microbial translocation and immune activation as hypothesized in studies.Many studies reported that there is a significant association of immune activation as measured by quantitative CRP levels with HIV disease progression.This study was designed to find the association between quantitative CRP and CD4 count in patients of HIV. Method:We retrieved and analyzed the data of 100 patients of HIV on ARTbetween June 2020 to December 2021 at Department of General Medicine and Outpatient Department or ART Centre, RNT Medical College and assigned group of Hospitals, Udaipur. Results :Majority of the subjects are on TLE (82%) regimen, followed by TLD (17%) and ZLN (1%).Majority patients had opportunistic infections and predominant was oral candidiasis (24%) followed by LRTI(17%), diarrhea (16%), tubercular meningitis(10%) and pulmonary TB(8%). 22% patients didn’t have any opportunistic infections. Among opportunistic infection as the severity of the infection increases, mean CRP levels among them increased, this shows positive correlation of mean CRP with severity of the infection statistically significant with p value = 0.000.Among opportunistic infection as the severity of the infection increases, mean CD4 levels among them decreased, this shows negative correlation of mean CD4 with severity of the infection, statistically significant with p value = 0.000. As the CD4 levels decrease, there is increase in CRP levels, so there is significant negative correlation between mean CD4 and mean CRP among subjects with different above labelled opportunistic infection.There is mean CRP of 22.52 mg/dl & Mean CD4 of 229.84 cells/cumm.As they both are negatively correlated and hence statistically significant with Pearson Correlation, r value – 0.770 p value = 0.000. Conclusion: Elevation of CRP is associated with a low count of CD4 in HIV diagnosed patients.Thus,serum CRP levels can be used as marker of immunosuppression and type of opportunistic infection in resource-limited areas where CD4 count availability is difficult.

    Background: Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain is an abstract concept which refers to a personal, private, and sensation of hurt, a harmful stimulus with signal current or pattern of responses. A person in pain feels distress or suffering and seeks relief. Pain is much more than a physical sensation caused by specific stimulus. Objectives: (1) To assess the pre-test and post-test level of joint pain among obese women in both control group and experimental group.(2) To evaluate the effectiveness of stretching exercise to reduce joint pain among obese women in experimental group and compare with control group.(3) To find the association between post-test level of joint pain among obese women with selected demographic variables. Methodology: A Total 50 obese women were selected by using simple random sampling technique and true experimental (one group pretest and posttest control group design) was adopted for the study. The data collection was divided into two sections in which section (a) contains socio demographic variables and section (b) contains Lysholm knee scoring scale. Pretest was conducted in both control group and experimental group by using perceived Lysholm knee scoring scale. Stretching exercise intervention was given to experimental group for 10 minutes twice in a day for 6 days. And post test was conducted in both control group and experimental group using perceived Lysholm knee scoring scale. Data analysis was done using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: The study findings revealed that, posttest of true experimental group mean score was 14,500 with standard deviation 4.88284 was higher when compared to pretest mean score of 23.2000 with the standard deviation 5.69025 and it was statistically significant at the value of p<0.0001 and the posttest level of Lysholm knee scoring scale was associated with history of joint pain and it was significant at the level of p<0.001. The study concluded that stretching exercise was effective to reduce the joint pain among obese women in experimental group when compared to control group. Conclusion: The study concludes that stretching exercise was effective and helped to reduce the level of joint pain among the obese women.

    There is a proverb saying “Educate a man, you will educate but one, educate a woman, you will educate a nation.” Education here just does not mean merely teaching the three R’s-reading, writing & arithmetic, but to make them aware of their rights and also realize the discriminatory treatment given to them. Economic independence is a vital aspect of empowerment. Women have been central to the grand vision of New India. India needs not just women’s development but women-led development that makes women the leading force of our development trajectory. Women are realising their word in all walks of life. They are demanding gender equality and justice in every sphere and helping themselves to become empowered. Objectives: To analyse the role of education in women empowerment which led to development of the society. Methodology: the humble approach of this paper is a descriptive study based on secondary sources of data which is doctrinal in nature.

    While the prevailing belief suggests that individuals with a high Intelligence Quotient (IQ) tend to excel in life, emerging research suggests that success may be more accurately predicted by factors such as Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Spiritual Intelligence (SI), as indicated by studies like those conducted by Goleman in 1995. Emotional intelligence is the capacity to comprehend, discern, and effectively apply knowledge, authority, information, and expertise regarding emotions within the human resources context. Whereas, Spiritual intelligence represents an elevated facet of intelligence that unleashes the qualities and capacities inherent in the authentic self, often referred to as the soul. These attributes encompass wisdom, compassion, integrity, joy, love, creativity, and peace. The cultivation of spiritual intelligence yields a profound sense of meaning and purpose, accompanied by enhancements in various crucial life and work skills. Furthermore, work-related stress permeates every level of an organization, impacting employees across the board. Stress emerges when workers face pressure while performing their duties or encounter obstacles that hinder their ability to fulfil their responsibilities. This study performed an in-depth analysis of previous research to explore the relationship between emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence, and their influence on work-related stress. The analysis encompassed a sample of 27 published articles from 2009 to 2023. The results of this study indicate that both emotional intelligence (EI) and spiritual intelligence (SI) are linked to reduced levels of work-related stress and improved health outcomes. Their positive influence extends to psychological and physical well-being, contributing significantly to organizational effectiveness.

    This research determined the relationship between the leadership capabilities of the physical education heads or administrators at Guangdong Maoming Health Vocational Collegeand the performance of their teachers in the classroom as a manifestation of their performance evaluation ratings. It was grounded on the Leadership Grid theory and Four-Factor theory and recruited 75 participant-teachers from the Guangdong Maoming Health Vocational College. The results of this investigation, obtained via a survey and analyzed using different statistical methods, found that the teachers viewed their PE heads’ leadership capabilities are satisfactory regardless of their sex, area of specialization, and educational attainment. The PE teacher respondents, on the other hand, had different assessments of the leadership capabilities of the PE Heads considering their age and experience. They did, however, exhibit a very satisfactory teaching performance, implying that authorities should pay attention to the teaching performance of PE teachers to go beyond their average academic performance.

    There are stunning hills and plains in the eight states that make up North East India. It is a land abundant in natural resources, including tea, oil, gas, lumber, and heritage. The inhabitants of this area live in harmony despite having distinctive appearances, cultures, and primitive qualities. However, because the rest of India has ignored their stories, they have become victims of bigotry. According to research, 78% of those surveyed said they have experienced racism because of their physical appearance, which is another factor for racism. Through descriptive study, we shall gain an understanding of the numerous issues that Indians in the northeast confront in this paper. The people of the Northeast have had enough, and they are now speaking out to defend their rights as Indian citizens.

    Unless children understand the importance of mental health, it cannot develop to a desirable extent. It is an important objective to enable them to solve the problems of their future life efficiently. Therefore, the immediate benefits are immediate and large for upper primary students, but the long-term disadvantages are not. A student at this age has developed the emotional brain in mental health development, but the thinking part of the whole is still developing. Because of this, children are easily motivated to take dangerous actions. So it is very important to have good and healthy mental health.

    Although Sri Lanka has achieved high success in school enrolment and literacy rates, the heavy examination orientation has adversely affected the student's total development. The three public examinations, Scholarship Examination, General Certificate of Education (Ordinary Level), and General Certificate of Examination (Advanced Level), receive too much attention from students, teachers, and parents, bringing too much stress on students. The study analysed the teachers' role in applying the Competency-Based Education system at the Senior Secondary Level of mathematics education from three perspectives: Initiate learning activities in a manner that will arouse interest among students, observe students to identify their positive and negative learning abilities, and promote learning by providing feedback on students' performance. The study employed a quantitative approach. A questionnaire was used as the primary data collection instrument. A stratified random sampling method was used to select a sample of 276 mathematics teachers who taught grades 10 and 11 from the Western Province of Sri Lanka. The findings revealed that the teachers were not fully aware of their roles and responsibilities in the CBE teaching-learning and assessment process, which hindered the application of CBE in the mathematics learning process at the senior secondary level. The findings lead to various recommendations, which include the Department of Education developing a mechanism to monitor the teaching-learning process regularly and providing teachers with adequate training where necessary. Further, implementing a competency-based assessment system to uplift the 21st-century skills within students. The aspects discussed would benefit policymakers, administrators, and teachers in enhancing the mathematics teaching-learning process.

    On the path of spiritual development there is the need to think about problems and challenges, taking advantage of and exploring, from the beginning to the end of life, everything that allows us to update "this time of being", with the aim of enriching and deepening knowledge, allowing the human being the possibility of building a path. A good interpretation of a drawing or painting shows the quality it hides, in terms of the importance of emotions, from a cognitive behavioural perspective. The source of intuition is located on the plane of the soul in the interpretation of drawing or painting and frees the meaning of the symbols, proposing a comprehensive vision and a global perception of events, intuition asks us to be able to open ourselves to the universal. The voice of the soul calls us to grow, to further develop benevolence, tolerance and responsibility. The interpretation of a drawing requires an attitude based on the understanding of the heart, welcoming with kindness the diverse and different information, allows the development of harmony and balance, which is nothing more than a different way of looking at them.

    This article investigates the relationships between antitrust and economic growth from a comparative view of various linkages including investment, inflation and trade openness. It argues that investment motivated by efficiency-seeking should be the main channel through which antitrust may affect growth, although this effect might be weak. This means that antitrust policy should focus on correcting microeconomic conducts that result in a misallocation of resources and a reduction in efficiency.
