About 69 per cent of the country’s total population of 121 crore continue to live in rural India, which exhibits that India is a rural-based country. In India, many states have been injecting several schemes towards achieving higher growth rate and they have achieved it also, but rural poverty and rural people’s development is still stagnated. So, the aim of the study is to analyse the economic conditions of rural people in Tamil Nadu after the LPG policies. For this analysis, landholding pattern, asset holding, agriculture production, and consumption pattern were taken as variables. The secondary data was collected from National Sample Survey Organisation, Reserve Bank of India Bulletins and Season and Crop Reports of Tamil Nadu.

Analysis of Backyard Poultry Farming in Cuddalore District of Tamil Nadu, India: Implication for Sustainable Rural Development

Poultry farming under backyard system is a age old practice in India. Several terracotta structures from Mohenzo-daro and Harappa indicates that, the people domesticated a number of birds (Randhawa, 1946). The domestic fowl (Gallus gallus domesticus) is believed to originate in India and its ancestor's, the red jungle fowl (Gallus gallus) is still found in several places of Northern India, from Kashmir to Assam, West Bengal, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Visakhapatnam and several parts of Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh [1]. This practice requires small space, comparatively lower investment, quick return and well distributed turn over throughout the year. This provides an excellent opportunity for gainful employment to unemployed members of rural communities (Bhat et al., 2014). Also, poultry meat consumption is a major protein source which covers the nutritional needs of the rural population [2]. Besides lowering of poverty problem, it helps in nutritional improvement, especially in vulnerable groups [3].

An economic analysis of rural micro enterprises and women empowerment in Salem District of Tamil Nadu

A study made by NABARD (2006) revealed that among the SHG members the loan provided for productive purposes has been utilized mostly for unproductive purposes as compared to productive purposes. But under the enterprises activities at later stage the scenario has entirely changed. Now the loans are properly utilized for productive purpose and the end result is there is increase in employment among rural women and income and women empowerment.

“Antioxidant Assay and GC MS Analysis of One Sidha Medicine Swasa Kudori Tablets” by Dr. Mudiganti Ram Krishna Rao, Dr. Hassan Mohammad, Dr. Sridhar Narayanan, Dr. K Prabhu, Dr. V S Kalaiselvi, Dr. Aparna Ravi, Hari Babu, Dr. Guru Rajan, S. Suganya, India.

he ancient science of Sidha medical practice was developed in Tamil Nadu, India by the “Sidhhars” literally meaning “accomplished people” or in other words the “Rishis.” This system is similar to Ayurveda and deals with the three main humors, Vatham (Wind), Pitham (Bile) and Kapham (Phlegm). These systems are based on the premise that any disease is a manifestation of the imbalance of these three humors and medicines are given to correct the balance, or in other words homoeostasis, which leads to the cure of the disease. The system believes in customized medicine for each patient, since each individual has a different body constitution, habits and psychological disposition and may be exposed to different environmental conditions and even the spiritual aspect of the patient. Thus this system is meant for the overall well being of a patient apart from treating a particular disease.

Nutritional status of children in rural India: a case study from Tamil Nadu, first in the world to initiate the Mid Day Meal scheme

The participation percentage of the students was around 99% (806 out of 810). Irrespective of the age groups, father’s occupation and sex, as per WHO’s in- ternational standards, out of the 806 students, 83% of the students were underweight (BMI < 18.5). Only 16% of the students were in the normal range (BMI 18.5 - 24.9), the remaining 0.39% and 0.06% were in the BMI range of 25 - 29.9 (overweight) and 30 - 35.9 (obese) respec- tively. The overweight and obese population was not that significant when compared with the underweight popu- lation. As mentioned earlier, in rural India, there are more students who are underweight than belonging to the other BMI categories. For further analysis, we have classified the students based on their ages for example, 11 - 13, 14 - 16, and 17 - 18 years. Figure 2 shows the classification of students based on their ages. A recent study in this direction also showed that BMI varies with ethnicity [33]. Tables 2 and 3 classify the students based on international and Asian standards, respectively. Ac- cording to the Asian standards, 15% of the students lie in the normal range (BMI 18.5 - 22.9), 1% of the students

Fertility and proximate determinants in rural Tamil Nadu

D a ta from a sample survey conducted in the middle fifties among 2380 couples in certain rural areas of the s ta te of U t t a r Pradesh have been analysed in greater detail concerning the caste differentials Rele 63 . The three Hindu caste groups ordered hierarchically exhibited an inverse relation with mean children ever born to women of 15 or more years of m arital d u ratio n . W omen of social class 3 which included lower Hindu castes and scheduled castes, who were m arried for 25-29 years had 7.07 children ever born com pared to 6.15 am ong social class 1. Corresponding figures for those m arried for 30 or more years were 6.93 and 5.74. Even when the analysis wras restricted to couples with both the husband and wife living, the differentials persisted. However an analysis of mean num ber of living children did not reveal clear differentials. It is obvious t h a t the pro p ortion of children surviving varied positively with social class s ta tu s which was borne out by the results presented. F u r th e r analysis by education of woman, occupation of h usband and of wife in broad m arital du ration groups confirmed the above differentials by- caste groups, but only broadly as the castes were now grouped into two categories rather th an th re e .' It is also n o tew o rth y th a t Muslim women in the sample had higher fertility than the lowest Hindu caste group. Similar Hindu caste differentials were reported by Sinha for u rban com m unities of U tta r Pradesh. The high caste Hindus had a lower completed fertility th a n the low^er caste Hindus who were com parable in fertility to Muslims Sinha 57j.

Archaeology of Krishnagiri District, Tamil Nadu

Archaeology of Krishnagiri District, Tamil Nadu

Exploration of this district has brought to light the evidence of continuity in culture right from prehistoric time till Early Historic period. It is interesting to note that, the stone tools from the site of Barugur and Vartanapalli previously explored by Robert Bruce Foote (1878) and K. Rajan (1997) had been dated to Palaeolithic or pre-Neolithic period based on typological analysis. The recent exploration at these two site have yielded stone tools which look like handxe, but are actually from Neolithic Period. If the findings of tools from these two sites are compared with the stone tools found from Sanganakallu-Kupagal Complex, it is quite evident that the handaxe like stone tools from Barugur and Vartanapalli are actually Neolithic Axe, which are in various stages of reduction.

shoulders of a married man to ensure safety and comfortable living options for his family. There is some degree of disharmony in ever family which supplements the stress factor. With the responsibilities and importance endowed upon a man after marriage, certain individuals perceive newer boundaries of maturity and bring alcohol use within its purview. The belief that espousal brings about a change in behavior and greater understanding and realization of responsibilities was not evident from our case control study analysis where, amongst problem drinkers, the proportion of married men was 47.2% as compared to 52.8% single men. The difference in this proportion was not statistically significant (p-value 0.094). An observation of the family structure displayed three fifth of the families (179, 59.7%) to be of nuclear type as compared to joint families (1.3%) and extended families (39%). This was in conjunction to the present norm of disintegration of larger families into smaller nuclear families, which has penetrated even the rural setting.
