It gives me great pleasure in bringing out yet another edition of PODAR PRABODHAN.
We at Podar believe in investing in constant quest for excellence. This issue of PODAR PRABODHAN stands testimony to our endeavour towards constant improvement and quest for excellence.
The editorial team has been reconstituted in order to make it broad-based and more balanced. The ISSN number is yet another feature that requires special mention.
The efforts put in by the editor by way of instructions and clarifications to the authors is laudable and the results are visible.
Research articles, when published, primarily gives a sense of fulfilment and satisfaction to the academic fraternity. We academicians spend a large portion of our time in observing, reading, understanding, analysing and evaluating many facets of life around us. We as a group have the rare opportunity of intervening in and changing the lives of adolescent students. We have multiple chances for interacting with different kinds of people and situations. This gives us a strong base for opinion building not on perception but based on experience. I am certain that such an opportunity may not be available to persons from any other profession. This knowledge requires to be shared and must reach as many as possible.
PODAR PRABODHAN gives a platform for sharing the knowledge and experience. The seamless world of knowledge has made knowledge exchange free and perpetual. We at PODAR add yet another dimension by making the journal interdisciplinary and international.
We are grateful to the members of the advisory committee for accepting our request to guide us in making PODAR PRABODHAN a research journal of eminence and excellence.
It is but obvious that the role of the contributors cannot be overemphasized in making this journal serve its purpose.
We invite writers and readers to the world of research which believe strongly that Research Always Rewards. We are open to suggestions and recommendations to make our next issue touch newer heights.
