R.L.Police Patil, S.G.Lecturer, Dept. of Kannada. 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. 1.3 Folk-Lore and Etiquette – Shri.

But it due its vital force from persistent human trait of using facilities of evolution, and thereby man began to practice new culture under the process of evolution. Later on, he became civilized. Thus, this paper concludes that as the folk-lore is the route of the etiquette and etiquette is the flower of the folk-lore. The values of the folk life has been accepted and adopted in the civilized society. 2) Post-colonial Literary Theroies – Shri. S.M.Kammar, S.G.Lecturer Dept. of English This paper looks at some of the new ways in which modern literary theories have formulated. It examines the space beyond post-colonialism, in the context of all-enveloping, globalization, which according to thinkers like Frantz Fanon, is a return of the colonizer in the form of Multi-National companies.

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 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. 4)4.1.Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry – 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.
