Today is the era of modernization and fast life where everybody is busy and living a stressful life. Advancement of busy, professional and social life, continuous work and overexertion, changing life style of modern human being has created several disharmonies in his biological system. The present clinical study was conducted in Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya and Hospital Hubli to compare the combined effectiveness of Shirolepa & Shiropichu in Reducing the Perceived Stress in Employees along with Concomitant Treatments in Chittodwega caused by Occupational stress. The research Question of the study were: Whether the combined effect of Shirolepa with concomitant treatment significantly decrease the signs and symptoms of Occupational stress vis-a-vis Chittodwega ; the scores of Professional life stress scale and DSM V when compared to Shiropichu with Jyothismathi tailam followed by concomitant treatments. The design of the study was Open Labeled Double Arm (Uncontrolled) Exploratory Clinical Trail. Overall effect of therapy showed that, 70% patient was cured or markedly improved at the end of 60 days of treatment in the Shirolepa group. 30% patients gained moderate improvement. While in the Shiropichu group 35% of patients gained marked improvement, 60% were moderately improved while 5% were having mild improvement. Hence, it can be concluded that, improvement in the Shirolepa group was more significant and consistent as compared to Shiropichu group. By seeing the results it’s evident that no patient had complete remission after Shirolepa/Shiropichu followed by Nasya i.e. on 15th day. This implies that only Shirolepa or Shiropichu is insufficient for the management of Chittodwega (OS). After completion of the treatment (60days) Subjects got marked relief in the symptoms. So the present study was ideal for Occupational stress having a package of treatments for long duration.

Abstract CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY IS a common condition that usually results from compression and inflammation of the cervical nerve root or roots in the region of the neural foramen. It is frequently caused by cervical disc herniation and cervical spondylosis. The diagnosis can be established by history and physical examination, but care should be taken, as diagnoses can mimic or coexist with cervical radiculopathy, such as entrapment neuropathies. The pathophysiology, presentation, and clinical evaluation of cervical radiculopathy are discussed.

The ongoing systemic transformations have intensified the need to update the reflection on (disabled) people, their abilities or even their destiny. The political transformation that took place in our country chanced the scope and forms of social life. Economic and socio-cultural changes led to the disappearance of disabled people. As a result, it is necessary to rebuild a humanistic programme based on embracing the human being, their abilities and capabilities. One of the most important methods of working on the condition and prospects of (disabled) people is undoubtedly communication, and dialogue within its scope.

In this article the author discusses the revolutionary and unique democratic-humanistic educational approach of Janusz Korczak (1878-1942), which emphasized the fundamental values of the human being concentrated on children and concerning their rights. The author presents democracy as a societal way of life, as practiced by Korczak, Wilczyńska and Falska. They administered their orphanages democratically, as expressed in Korczak’s writings. Social and moral education is presented through a social lifestyle based on fundamental principles of democratic education in the spirit of Korczak. The article also examines the characteristics of democracy itself in the historical perspective and in relation to Korczak’s democratic and humanistic approach. Humanism and democracy as regulators of social life can be greatly inspiring for teachers, educators and parents involved in the process of child education.

Although the social construction of the human hair varies from culture to culture, the symbolic function of hair varies from person to person. In Adichie’s  Americanah, the characters are primarily defined by their hair before the construction of their race, career and  personality. The human hair becomes the premise for brotherhood and sisterhood in. Many episodes take place in the salon, thereafter a person’s hair is qualified as either good or bad. The theoretical framework for this paper is New Historicism which interrogates social life and power relations among people in the society. In this work we conclude that Adichie tells the story of human hair not for its sake but to portray the problem of immigrants, religious fanaticism, disruption of academic calendar and the frustration therein, loveless marriage, the environment and other human conditions. Finally, the hair shows that every person is a complete human being first and foremost

In the article I introduce several distinctions regarding the issue of civilisation in general, especially stressing the role of values in its development. I also discuss the bases of the Western civilisation, which are—I believe—undermined in the name of certain benefits overridden by propaganda of various types of “correctness” (political, religious, social, etc.). Technology with increasing intensity transforms societies into superstructures, where humanity is disappearing. Technology is becoming more and more mentally ergonomic, replacing man not only in physical work but also in mental work. It is not about the utopian rejection of technology, but about being aware of both opportunities and threats including enslaving by technology. The phenomenon seems to be particularly dangerous if we assume the existence of so-called superintelligence (N. Bostrom). So if technology is not anthropocentric, sooner or later it will lead to complete incapacitation of the human being, both physically and mentally. For this reason, we should seek an integral understanding of man and the so-called progress. It is necessary to understand what values are important in our individual and social life. The fundamental value is the art of wise life as the highest skill.

Now a days due to sedentary lifestyle and lack of time, people cannot concentrate on their proper regimen and people undergo many unwanted practices like faulty dietary habits, improper sitting posture, continuous work in one posture and overexertion, load bearing movements during travelling and sports. All these factors lead to the increase in the incidents of Manyasthambha in a large population. In classics Manyasthambha is explained under Vataja Nanatmaja Vikaras and is mentioned as Kaphaavruta Vata in its Samprapthi. While explaining treatment of Manyasthambha, Acharya Susruta clearly explains about Rooksha Sweda and Nasya which helps in the Samprapti Vighatana of Avarana in Manyasthambha.

Over the period of time, human race has evolved and till date the development is going on. There is continuous civilization and change in life style of human being. Due to these changes in life style, human being is constantly struggling against the changing environmental conditions to maintain optimum health and vigor throughout the life. These changes have lead to increase in the disease burden in the society. Juvenile Diabetes is also such condition which is going to increase day by day in children. Children are the most vulnerable community in society. Juvenile diabetes (Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus – IDDM/ Type 1 DM / T1DM) is the most common endocrine/metabolic disorder of childhood and adolescence. The high prevalence data of Juvenile Diabetes is also alarming. Globally, the incidence of Type 1 DM is increasing in children and youth by about 3% per annum. It is characterized by deficient insulin production and requires daily parenteral administration of insulin, otherwise may prove fatal. The cause of type 1 diabetes is not known and it is not preventable with current knowledge. So a survey of 50 diagnosed juvenile diabetes patients in Jamnagar city of Gujarat state was conducted. With this survey study an effort has been done to find out some contributory factors in the manifestation of the disease from an Ayurvedic perspective.
