Abstract

According to a legendary proverb “A man without education is a strange animal.” Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was of the opinion that education will liberate all and hence he called each and everyone to be educated, unite and fight against the odds of the society. The encyclopedia of education defines legal education as a ‘skill for human knowledge which is universally relevant to the lawyer’s art and which deserve special attention in educational institutions’. Former Justice Dada Dharmadhikari has rightly remarked that ‘legal education makes lawyer an expert who pleads for all like the doctor who prescribes for all, like the priest who preach for all and like the economist who plan for all’. It may really be termed as an art that enjoys the capability to make lawyer a best pleader for the public at large. Education does not mean mere “accumulation of information” or acquisition of degrees. It is the motivating force behind the character and personality of the student that mould him into a good human being. Education pulls out a person from ignorance, superstitions and narrow-minded selfishness and lead towards progress, liberation and social behavior respectively. Even an old Sanskrit proverb state that education which leads to liberation; liberation from ignorance which shrouds the mind; liberation from superstition which paralyses efforts; liberation from prejudice which blinds the vision of truth.

Abstract

Farmers' Indebtedness in the State emerged as a central issue. This is because, the problem of indebtedness, damaged the social status of a farmer and triggered to commit suicide. In India, on an average, there is one farmer suicide in every 30 minutes since 2002, while in case of Haryana, the suicide number of farmers is 4.8 per one lakh farmers. Therefore, the issue of farmers’ indebtedness becomes a matter of intense debate for whole of the country and as well as for Haryana. In this background, the present study is conducted to assess the status of farmers’ indebtedness in the State in detail. The results of the study indicate that the informal mechanism of credit delivery is playing an important role for marginal and small farmers in meeting their credit requirements in the State. Seventy one per cent loans to total loan were used in productive activities in Haryana, while in case of India the same ratio was 73.10 per cent. Marriage and other ceremonies were the major unproductive expenses in Haryana, which were higher as compared to aggregate India and it is more in SC and BC community in the State. In addition, maximum indebtedness was found to be ` 25289 on the 615-775 MPCE class farm households in the State and the status of Scheduled Caste and Backward Class farm households is not better, while on an average the status of farm households belonging to other social group of farming community is better in the State as compared to India as aggregate. The size of landholding is also negatively associated with informal borrowing. On the basis of foregoing analysis, we suggest that the State government should monitor the informal mechanism of credit, increase the awareness among farmers in general and marginal and small in particular, about the disadvantages of utilization of loan in unproductive activities, and strengthen the cooperative movement in the State.

Owing to the fast growth and development of wireless technologies, WMNs are acting as Internet service Providers (ISPs). WMNs enable the users to access the Internet anywhere anytime with the help of wireless mesh routers. These routers can be used to connect WMNs with several other wireless networks such as cellular network, Wi-Fi and Wi-Media networks.
