In India, communalism has spread mainly due to false historical&nbsp;narratives. The British historians, with an aim to create Hindu-Muslim dissension, divided the&nbsp;Indian history into Hindu, Muslim and British periods. It was projected that Hindus and Muslims&nbsp;had been two homogenous blocks who have always been antagonistic to each other and the subject&nbsp;of history is mainly a narration of the confrontation of Hindus and Muslims. It was also propagated&nbsp;that the religion of Islam spread mainly by sword and there was vast desecration of temples by&nbsp;Muslim rulers. But this communal version of history is not supported by historical research. All&nbsp;religions preach love and compassion and no religion teaches hatred for any class of persons.&nbsp;Responsible citizens of all religions need to become vocal and give an ideological challenge&nbsp;to communalism. Religious fanaticism needs to be strongly condemned and the common moral&nbsp;values of religions be emphasized. Highlighting the correct historical narratives and emphasizing&nbsp;the composite Indian culture will be helpful in engendering an environment of harmony and&nbsp;brotherhood. If the forces of Peace and Harmony become vocal, communalism will itself take a&nbsp;back seat.</p> 2022-10-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A Study of Contemporary (Modern) Painting in Herat. Case Study (Faculty of Fine Arts, Herat University) 2022-11-01T07:39:36+00:00 Abdul Qadir Sarwari <p>Painting in Herat in the last two decades has achieved new achievements and approaches to the past&nbsp;traditions. These achievements were mostly in terms of form, color and technique, first influenced&nbsp;by modern Western painting, but then painters and students presented works with a combination of&nbsp;Eastern and Western painting based on the culture and traditional patterns of our society.<br>The purpose of this study was to examine the contemporary (modern) painting within the&nbsp;framework of Herat College of Fine Arts, which can be important for students, artists and art&nbsp;lovers. In this research, two methods of library method and field method have been used. Authentic&nbsp;books and articles have been used in background. In field method, the data collection was based&nbsp;on observations and interviews with several professors of the Faculty of Fine Arts and pioneers of&nbsp;contemporary painting in Herat, which the result is summarized as follows.&nbsp;<br>Contemporary painting was introduced to the audience academically for the first time by presenting&nbsp;the works of two painters from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Herat in an exhibition entitled Gardoun.&nbsp;By observing the pictures and interviews that were conducted, in the early days of its formation,&nbsp;contemporary painting was influenced by the Cubism style, but in recent years, contemporary&nbsp;painters have presented works with a new look and a combination of Eastern and Western art&nbsp;based on culture and civilization and indigenous environmental patterns of our country, which&nbsp;some unique methods can be seen in the works of a number of masters.<br>Contemporary painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Herat began academically in 2009 and went&nbsp;through good stages and in the last decade found its place among students, but unfortunately by the&nbsp;change of government, some restrictions arose on the art of painting and establishing exhibitions&nbsp;which caused the lack of motivation of artists and students to art, and this process caused a number&nbsp;of artists and students to go abroad. What will be the future of art and the artist is a question that&nbsp;will be answered in the future.</p> 2022-10-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sustainable Agriculture in India - Natural Farming Spreads Roots in Andhra Pradesh 2022-11-01T07:40:19+00:00 Chetti Praveen Kumar <p>Indian agriculture sector is the most vulnerable due to climate change challenges like uncertain rainfall and water stress and coupled with week economic status of the farmers. The Indian agriculture sector facing three different challenges, such that high cost of production, low production and productivity and degradation of natural resources with affected agroecological system. Now it evident that serious concerns raised about the future problems related to country with the present approach. Natural farming can produce nutritious food without harming the environment or the health of the soil. The Andhra Pradesh state was specifically chosen for the study since it has more than 750000 farmers that practice natural farming there. The secondary data have been used which is drown from the RySS and Indiastat and also related reposts, and the study referred various previous studies and research articles from the existing literature. The study investigates the spatial distribution analysis by using ArcGIS. And the study analyzed the yield and net returns of the natural and non-natural farming in the study area. Natural farmers will gain more from lower cultivation costs, higher crop yields, higher earnings, better, healthier, more nutrient-rich food, environmental preservation, and reduced soil erosion.

In this study, 8 algal samples namely Ulvafasciata (Green algae),&nbsp;Padinagymnosphora, Sargassamwightii, and Turbinariaornate (brown algae), Gracilariacorticata,&nbsp;Halimedamacrolopa, Halymeniadilatata, and Gracilariacrassa (red algae) were collected and&nbsp;identified its fatty acid compositions. U. fasciatawhich showed high fatty acid constituents was&nbsp;further analysed for its anticancer activity against Hela cells by MTT assay and AO/EtBr staining.&nbsp;The results confirmed that U. fasciata could inhibit the Hela cells by cytotoxic activity and by&nbsp;inducing apoptosis and thus could be used as apontential source in treating cancers.</p> 2022-10-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Machine Learning Approach for Early Detection of Alzheimer’s Disease 2022-11-01T07:42:05+00:00 G P Suja <p>Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is thought to be the most generally known cause of dementia, and it&nbsp;is estimated that only one in four people with Alzheimer’s are properly identified. While there&nbsp;is no definitive cure, the negative effects may be ignored while the weakening is mild. Treatment&nbsp;is most effective when it begins before major downstream injury occurs, i.e., at the stage of&nbsp;moderate cognitive impairment (MCI) or much earlier. Physical and neurological examinations&nbsp;and neuropsychological and cognitive testing are used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. There is a&nbsp;need for improved diagnostic tools, which is what this postulation addresses. Kaggle is an online&nbsp;open-access dataset for improving the Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis technique. The information&nbsp;acquired during the conference is documented. One goal of this theory’s research is to look&nbsp;at machine learning methodologies to create a classifier that can help screen new persons for&nbsp;different stages of Alzheimer’s disease. In comparison to previous work methods, our methodology&nbsp;is suitable for breaking down diverse classes in a single setting and needs less distinct training&nbsp;samples and inconsequential prior knowledge. In our tests, we saw a significant improvement in&nbsp;categorizing all diagnostic categories. Initially, the model is trained on 64 evaluated examples&nbsp;from the Kaggle database. We next test our created model on the whole set of entries supplied by&nbsp;the Kaggle dataset to confirm our framework’s finding. Our results show 96.37% accuracy in AD&nbsp;detection and categorization.</p> 2022-10-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Prominence of the Home Garden: A Study of Bogawantalawa South Grama Niladhari Division, Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka 2022-11-01T07:42:42+00:00 M Krishnasoban <p>Home garden is an integral part of local food systems in developing countries.

By discussing the issues of the identities of the perpetrators and the victims, and&nbsp;also how the martyrs of these massacres are remembered in the present times, this article aims to&nbsp;draw a historical axis connecting the predicaments of Indian and Irish independence movements&nbsp;against colonial despotism. It also highlights the representations of these two incidents in the&nbsp;domain of popular culture, by focusing mainly on the arena of films. The article, which does not&nbsp;initate a critical historical discussion about the causes and effects of the two massacres, aims to&nbsp;investigate the aftershocks of two genocides driven by imperial despotism, rather than delving into&nbsp;a historical study of the Jallianwala Bagh and Croke Park incidents.</p> 2022-10-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Does Internet Become Life Worst?
