However, in the Himalayas the effect of deforestation is visible in a short span and land-slides show the devastating effects of removing green cover. In Western Ghats such quick effects are rare. In the Himalayas, it is the women who are the main supporters due to the acute shortage of fuel wood and fodder. In Karnataka, the situation is not so serious, though women took active part in the Appiko, there is no shortage of fuel wood and fodder. Compared to the Himalayan women, the women in Western Ghat are better off. They can still collect fuel and fodder in the vicinity of their villages.

“If we want to create a new society, then India needs education more than bread”
Social Work Education in India will celebrate its Diamond Jubilee Year in 2011. When we see the social work scenario in India, social work education has to go through many dramatic changes in coming years to sustain its stability in the ethos and situation of globalization and privatization.

When we think of Social Service and Social Work what comes to our mind usually are physical needs of our people like food, water, health, medical services, transportation, communication, etc,. While these are absolutely essential for our physical existence there is something even more important for our happiness, and that of our society. This is character, morality, truthfulness, unselfishness, brotherhood, service mindedness and concern for the wellbeing of fellow citizens in the society.
Employee retention is a process in which the employees are encouraged to remain with the organization for the maximum period of time or until the completion of the project. Employee retention is beneficial for the organization as well as for the employee. Employees today are different. They are not the ones who don’t have good opportunities in hand. As soon as they feel dissatisfied with the current employer or the job, they switch over to the next job. It is the responsibility of the employer to retain their best employees. If they don’t, they would be left with no good employees. A good employer should know how to attract and retain its employees. Employee retention would require lots of efforts, energy, and resources but the results are worth it.
The problems of the disabled have many facets. It is commonly accepted that the problems of the disabled are varied in nature and this makes differing attitudes at various levels in society. In a developing country like India with long years of economic and social backwardness they become much more complex and acute. It is in the fitness of things that with growing social awareness and with the desire to optimize the totality of human resource development of the nation, the position of the disabled and the philosophy and strategy to tackle the situation should increasingly receive greater attention in our society.
“An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.”-Swami Vivekananda
The development of one’s personality, done in the right manner, is a challenging and rewarding task for every individual, particularly for the energetic youth whom can gain much from it. It is every person’s duty to work towards it, since personality development is necessary for success in any field. In the writings, talks and lectures of Swami Vivekananda, constructive ideas relating to personality development are profusely scattered.
Much of the malaise we have is man made. The conventional divide of haves and have nots was a mere speck of a stagnant cesspool which has swelled to a dangerously dynamic wild river thanks to contributions from tributaries like digital, rural-urban, religious, communal and other divides. Add to this global warming which too is man’s handiwork. The author has elaborated how the sugar industry, nurtured to stability can mitigate the above evils though not provide the panacea for all ills.
