Jain saints have always been ahead in removing the evils of life and society. Jain saints have always opposed the practice of multiple marriages, female insults, female illiteracy. In this book, I have described the works which inspired by the Jain saints to promote the public welfare works like to open hospitals, libraries, schools, colleges and encouraging the education for girls. Jain saints have also strongly opposed the social inequality, cast system, ahinsa, purda system, dowry, child marriages, mratyubhoj. They also opposed drug addiction to participate in gamble by young generation. Jain saints also gave emphasis on environment protection, protection of proletarial. This work will give new direction to human and the society will also be thankful to Jain saints. Show gratitude to those who have shown a new path to the society.

Shaurya, a regular guy from IIT with a huge fascination towards technology and a heightened curiosity like no other, ready to achieve all his dreams met with a series of events that completely changed his life forever. He was never the one to live an ordinary life but to plot the assassination of the Prime Minister of India and a few other acts in his life meant a complete transformation. A scientific mind exploded by emotional harms led to such a mystery thriller story written by the author in such a way that blends all the flavors like love, drama, sci-fi or crime in a perfect way and leaves the reader in the two minds while justifying every turnaround the story has. If one thinks that a movie with a mystery genre is quite predictable by the trailer, then it is definitely a wrong prediction. Surely the PM is murdered, but is it Shaurya? What may be the motive of the killer? A criminal from IIT? Wait! Trailers can never be a spoiler. Happy reading!!!

Demographic dividend, as defined by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) means, “The economic growth potential that can result from shifts in a population’s age structure, mainly when the share of the working-age population (15 to 64) is larger than the non-working-age share of the population (14 and younger, and 65 and older).” In other words, it is a boost in economic productivity that occurs when there are growing numbers of people in the workforce relative to the number of dependents. UNFPA stated, “A country with both increasing numbers of young people and declining fertility has the potential to reap a demographic dividend.”
Due to the dividend between young and old, many argue that there is a great potential for economic gains, which has been termed the “demographic gift”. In order for economic growth to occur, the younger population must have access to quality education, adequate nutrition and health including access to sexual and reproductive health.
In near future India will be the largest individual contributor to the global demographic transition. A 2011 International Monetary Fund Working Paper found that substantial portion of the growth experienced by India since the 1980s is attributable to the country’s age structure and changing demographics. By 2026, India’s average age would be 29, which is least among the global average.
The time we knew is gone. A new state arises to satisfy the whim of a notorious scientist who, out of boredom in the socially disconnected society, releases a deadly virus that radically transforms two hundred million law-abiding citizens into living dead. Dangerous and infectious, they are now multiplying within the great walls of the heavily protected and monitored state, controlled by the government. Despite the drastic attempts of the military, the scientists, and those in power to understand and cure the infected beings who are divided into four types – cripple, crawlers, violent, and the ghouls – the virus still continues to transform everyone who comes into contact with it. Only the native personnel known as ‘The Catcher’ with the special skills and abilities required to assist in the scientific endeavors and dealings with the zombies are permitted to access the infected areas. With total fifty districts infected and fallen in chaos, will the Catchers be able to triumph over the zombie plague or will the walking dead ultimately take over the whole nation? With irreverent humor, wild fantasies, a mischievous narrator and unforgettable scandalous characters, Parabellum: Seventeen is a perfect book for anyone with a thirst for adventure in the local Zombieland.
Every tribe has their own world-view and perspective towards life. Also, each individual has his/her own
viewpoints which often remain unexpressed and unseen. In our present time where the world that
appears to the eyes fails to understand an individual or the whole tribe, the world within the mind is
where one can find companionship and strength that lasts eternally. Short-stories are thus born out of
those untold stories which the world fails to notice. Out of frustration, happiness, love, kindness, fear
and every type of feeling and emotion that one experiences and sees, springs an urge to retell them.This
book, "Kejok Aningve," is a collection of Karbi short-stories in which the attempt has been to show the
simplistic way of life of the Karbi tribe. Readers may find that the themes and subjects are too trivial.
However, the stories that we tell are alive in themselves, and life isn’t made of only great or fantastic
events. A single moment of life can make a huge difference.

Why would a simple backbencher, hater of those philosophical conversations boring people do, irritating academic books, actually anything written in general – suddenly, aspire to become an academician? Why did he write this weird book in such a hurry? Like he desperately wants to dump Havana omelette but someone has brutally stopped him from going to the toilet, until he completes his homework. Samrat an irregular but happy college going lad suddenly gets a hard kick from life, when his flatmate Bob drowns and dies during a secret, fun trip to Goa. As Samrat walks in to pay last tributes to his friend, the deceased’s father hands him a letter, where he requests Samrat to adopt one strong quality of his son that had the potential to change lives, so that the greatness inside that lifeless body doesn’t perish along with it, further mentioning that particular attribute to be a seed that Samrat had to adopt and nurture, until its harvest. Creepy enough, after this episode life takes a completely different turn for Samrat, who ultimately finds himself in a rehabilitation centre, staring at a second shot at life. Was it a mere co-incidence or that part of a dead friend in him, trying to come out alive? You decide!
