       Learning Kannada prosody has always been a challenge to the students
of Kannada poetry (old poetry) and its rhythmic patterns and metrical lines.
Prosody is being taught in various ways depending on the availability of text
books and expertise. Teaching the prosody in the class room situation through
exercises is an effective alternative, especially when it is being taught with the
purpose developing poetic abilities. However, the kind of poetic meter to be
taught remained a point of contention. Commenting upon the neglect of
prosody, the author opines that to appreciate and grasp poetic expression at its
best. The knowledge of prosody is essential. A case is made for taping the
efficacy of task-based learning with emphasis on role-plays and problem
solving. While insights from the ancient Kannada books inform the paper on the
subject, task based statements drawn from the research scholars on the topic
illustrate the ideas presented in the paper. Therefore, the purpose of the paper is
not discuss teaching prosody, but to facilitate students to acquire knowledge of
prosody by equipping them with the competence to take advantage of various
books on prosody.

2.1 Rural credit in Karnatak: Weaknesses and corrections – Dr. M.B.Belavatagi,
                                                              S.G.Lecture, Dept. of
              Many reforms have been taken up in the state of Karnatak to lift
the rural people from their economic malady. But there is no proper
implementation of these reforms and condition of the rural people remained
same. Under this situation this paper explores feasibility and strength and
weakness of these reformations. The author mainly discusses the relevance of
this rural credit system prevailing in India in three different contexts. It was due
to lack of proper insight and conceptualization it has become deplorable. This
paper tries to study certain factors that are responsible for the present rural
credit system in Karnatak. In Karnatak the budget provides covering to the loss
of interest of banks, when the co-operative sector charges six percent instead of
the prevailing rate of interest. But, subsidization of one institution as against
others may create imbalance in the rural credit sector, the author opines.

2.2 Impact of Roads on Rural Agricultural Economy: Evidences from Karnatak
                            – Shri. B.G.Javali, S.G.Lecturer, Dept. of Economics
               It is argued that rural Karnatak lacks proper infra-structure
facilities. In case of the proper road transportation in rural Karnatak it is true.
The importance of infra-structure for the development of rural area needs hardly
any emphasis. Provision of adequate and quality infra-structure in rural areas
facilitate improvement in productivity and efficiency of capital in agriculture
improving credit absorption capacity of the area, generating employment,
increasing farmer‟s income. The major objective of this paper is to assess the
impact of rural roads in terms of increased income on form sector of the
benefited areas. The study depends upon the samples drawn randomly from the
selected villages and covering various sectors of the society. Here the author
opines that improved connectivity facilitates better excess to social necessities
like health care centers, educational institutions and access to main land in case
isolated villages. Thus this paper high lights the role of road infra-structure on
the rural economy in selected places.

3) The Relevance of the Political Doctrines of Machiavelli –
                    Shri. R.K.Rayanagoudar, S.G.Lecturer, Dept. of Pol.Science.
              This paper focuses on the political doctrines of Machiavelli and
relevance of those doctrines in present day political context of India in general
and the state of Karnatak in particular. The purpose of this study was to research
the effects of the foundation of a new science of statesmanship for which
modern thought is very much indebted. The same passion which inspired the
exhortion to liberate Italy urged Machiavelli to provide the invoked redeemer
with a political system adequate to his enterprises. It is on this system that
reader must focus their attention to understand the meaning and the value of
Machiavelli‟s ideas.
               The novelty of the system consist in the fact that Machiavelli was
the first to view history and society as purely human and natural facts free from
supernatural and providential influence. He conceived his science with rational
and inquisitive method, and, in doing so disentangled politics from the restraints
of theology. Machiavelli‟s starting point was the assumption that men, like
nature, are subject to immutable laws. Men are always the same and are
animated by the same passions that lead them fatally to the same decisions,
acts and results. From this assumption Machiavelli derives two conclusions: that
one can foresee the course of political development by meditating upon the
cycles and phases of historical events, and that essential to a statesman is not
only the “experience of modern events and constant study of the past” but also
the ability to exploit this knowledge in actual political actions. Thus this paper
discusses such action in the political doctrines of Machiavelli.

                                 Dr. V.K,Kolur, S.G.Lecturer, Dept of Sociology
              Since consumer protection act inception is trying hard to protect
the interest of the consumers. But it is only a postmortem, because it will come
only after the event. Therefore proper education is needed to make awareness in
consumers regard to consumer protection right is need of the hour. Every
consumer should take proper care before handing the issue i.e, while buying or
opting services etc,. Thus this paper focuses on consumer protection and quality
in health care industry.

4.2. Peace Conflict and Development: A Macro Sociological Perspective -
                          Shri. G.R.Kalaburgi, S.G.Lecturer, Dept. of Sociology
              In this paper an attempt has been made to argue that the current pre
occupation of the development practitioners and peace activists with the issue of
peace and conflict in the contest of development. It narrowly conceived and
therefore, it does not deal with broader issues of development in the context of
neo-liberal economic reforms. While some of the routs of conflict and unrest
can be traced back to periods preceding liberal economic reforms, the
intensification of conflict is very much connected with post liberalization
development. Thus this paper discusses these developments in a macro
sociological perspective.

1. Value Based Instruction and Cultural Activties
Goal/Context: True education must promote and encourage noble motives,
objective thinking and strength of will to implement one‟s decisions. When
perception leads to right decisions, will power helps in implementation. Culture
can not be taught. Wisdom can not be told. Morality can not be promoted
through classroom teachings. Moral and values can not be super imposed from
above. There to be cultivated from within and practiced in voluntary manner.
What is important is to realize that the moral and human values are not to be
promoted by direct instructions. The student should be made to discover them
for themselves. Teaching is external and learning is internal. If want students to
learn values must internalized. Appropriate learning situation and teachable
movements should be provided inside and outside the class room. It is under
this context, some cultural programmes have been conducted in our college.

Practice: Value based instruction has been internalized in our curriculum.
Besides this some value based activities have been conducted. Personality
developments programmes have been conducted. Training in leadership, soft
skills, crisis management etc, have been made through arranging different
programmes. As part of women empowerment, some special lecture
programmes related to women issues have been conducted. Inclusion of issues
pertaining to women have been created awareness has been created on the
present status of women, their rights, duties and problems. Discussion on these
lines would ignite the minds of young persons on the urgency to conscientise
every women about the inherent power that remain dormant within them and the
need to activate such power that would liberate them oppressive and unjust
movement. Topics such as general discrimination, role conflict among working
women, problem of dowry, etc. have been given to students for seminars and
debates. Departments of Commerce and Economic have taken up special studies
on socio-economic life of the villagers. Thus a special set of exercises have
been undertaken along with interesting themes and topics have been
incorporated in to the seminars/symposia conducted in our college.

Evidence of Success: The practice of value based education has evidenced
positive results over the past years. The faculty experienced greater joy and
fulfillment in carrying out their teaching profession. Creativity, innovation, and
novelty in teaching learning process has helped both staff and students to enjoy
their given tasks. The students are exposed to more of practical work that
equipped them with confidence and compitetent.
2. The Communicative Skill Programmes:
Goal: The goal of the programme is to provide training in communicative skills,
English speaking and writing and job skills.

The Context: Ours is rural college, in which most of the students studying in
the college are from the rural background. They are too weak to use
communicative skills. Since they are studying in kannada medium, they are very
poor in English language, in which students are expected to get proficiency. It is
under this context, the initiative has been taken up to train them in spoken
English. It is well understood that skills should be part of any teaching
programme and that it is the skills that make the students employable, besides
the acquisition of the degrees. So this programme involves actual requirements
of the present job-market. It aims to impart soft skills including communicative
skills, presentation skills, personality skills and help students to acquire General
English Skills. The activities of the programme will be conducted through
English study circle in association with other departments of the college.

The Practice: The department of English actively organized the programme of
Communicative Skills. Classes were conducted for three months to provide
training to students in spoken English. Teachers from the department of English
have designed the programme and put special efforts without remuneration
besides the regular work. No fees collected from the students for this training
              The teachers have conducted classes for the students. Some forty
students were participated in the spoken English class. The lecture were
followed other supplementary methods like audio-visual aids. Besides these
class room practice session, involving other teachers for practice and video
presentation of group discussions and other job skills presentations were made.
Students were made to participate in drilling exercises in the form of
conversation and dialogue. Along with remedial grammar classes were
conducted and note other writing materials have been provided to the students.

Evidence of Success: The impact of the programme is immense. Self
