Meditation and expanding one’s consciousness can help one achieve self-realisation. Reflection and self-awareness are crucial in realising one’s true nature and achieving&nbsp;self-actualisation. The Bhagavad Gita generally gives a complete and multifaceted view of&nbsp;self-realisation. This notion includes the realisation of one’s true self, the eradication of one’s ego, the pursuit of spiritual paths, and the attainment of freedom. Abraham Maslow proposed Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as a psychological theory. Human needs can be classified into five levels of hierarchy. Carl Rogers, a well-known humanistic psychologist, coined the term&nbsp;‘self-actualisation.’ Eastern philosophies, such as mindfulness and Zen Buddhism, have a long history of emphasising self-realisation via inward awareness and meditation. Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy that encourages people to unite with the Tao. Existentialism is a philosophical movement investigating self-realisation by delving into fundamental concerns about life and individuality. While the Bhagavad Gita’s concept of self-realisation is similar to Western psychology theories and Eastern philosophies, it is distinguished by its comprehensive approach. The Bhagavad Gita’s self-realization teachings complement psychology and philosophy. Students learn morals, self-awareness, and progress from these lessons. These concepts can harmonise and educate.</p> Pramila Ramani ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2024-01-01 2024-01-01 11 3 82 90 10.34293/sijash.v11i3.6910 Beyond the Frame: Exploring Dimensions of Colonial Photography in India <p>The paper “Beyond the Frame: Exploring Dimensions of Colonial Photography in India” delves into the multifaceted dimensions of photography’s inception in India during the colonial era.

Furthermore, the paper examines the colonial gaze inherent in early ethnographic photography and discusses the emergence of Indian photographers like Raja Deen Dayal. Overall, it underscores photography’s pivotal role in representing colonial power dynamics and cultural narratives in India, amalgamating art history, media theory, and postcolonial studies.</p> Martin Tom Balaji Ranganathan ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2024-01-01 2024-01-01 11 3 91 97 10.34293/sijash.v11i3.6913 Challenges of Inclusive Education in India <p>The goal of inclusive education is to educate kids with disabilities and learning challenges alongside regular kids under one roof. It gathers all students in one classroom, focusing on maximising each student’s potential without taking into account their areas of strength or weakness. According to inclusive education, all categories of people with disabilities should have equal access to school and that extra attention should be given to the learning requirements of children with disabilities.The Indian government expedited the new Inclusive Education programme in order to meet the 2010 deadline for Education for All (EFA). The goal of inclusion is to ensure that a varied range of learners, including individuals with disabilities, speakers of other languages and cultures, families and homes, and interests and learning styles, are included. As far as we are aware, the Indian government has already implemented the RTE Act of 2009, which guarantees free and compulsory education for children between the ages of 6 and 14 years old, regardless of their caste, gender, colour, religion, disability, or language. Education for all helped to integrate many communities, including children from disabled families and members of Scheduled Tribes and Castes, into the mainstream of education. The inclusive education model serves as the foundation for education for everyone. Additionally, love, acceptance, and a sense of belonging are necessities for every child. Nonetheless, it offers them a completely new viewpoint on how to handle diversity or combat unfavourable sentiments. This article explains the idea of inclusive education in India, as well as its implementation’s difficulties.</p> GP Suja S Elamaran ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2024-01-01 2024-01-01 11 3 98 104 10.34293/sijash.v11i3.6905 Digital Skills and Gender Equality <p>Today, gender equality and digital development are inextricably linked. Digital skills have become a necessity and no longer an option unlike a few years ago, especially after the pandemic. Technology has penetrated every nook and corner of society, so much so that it has become absolutely necessary to be able to function to the fullest and be in sync with the world around us. Against this backdrop, developing digital skills is imperative because of the role it plays in every aspect of life. Therefore, our education system needs to be more inclusive in order to bridge the gender digital divide. To bridge the gap and achieve gender equality, equal access and training is required. However, the implementation of such an education system, though, is an entirely different story. Digital skills education, especially for women and girls, is in a deplorable state. This paper will analyse the urgency of the need to address this issue and discuss potential measures to achieve equality.</p> Ruth Z Hauzel Tanuja Pattnaik ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2024-01-01 2024-01-01 11 3 105 110 10.34293/sijash.v11i3.6883 Feminist Take on "The Taming of the Shrew" and "10 Things I Hate About You." <p>This research explores the evolution of feminist themes from Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" to its cinematic adaptation, "10 Things I Hate About You."
