This sholka represents the importance of women, and one can say, "Home is the first school, Mother is the first teacher," demonstrating the respect and value given to women. However, these words exist only in the form of letters and not in practise. It is a great tragedy that man is hesitant to use and accept her gratitude. When this is the case, discrimination is quite common in Dalit communities even today, and the Manuvadi attitude of discrimination against Dalit women is growing like anything else. There could be several reasons for this context. But you can always imagine upper-class communities viewing her as an object of prejudice, abusing her caste, discriminating against her caste, mischief, and reduction. This article attempted to review the social conflicts of Dalit women in India, with a focus on the unpleasant events of the time, such as raping, ignoring, disrespecting, intimidating, and so on.</p> 2021-07-21T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Kambar Chendappa Rajappa, Gulati Varun https://journals.asianresassoc.org/index.php/ijmrd/article/view/653 The Presence of Saiva Sidhantha Elements in Thirukovars Work 2021-08-18T03:55:18+00:00 Maheswari K maheswari1576@gmail.com <p>Shaivism is a popular philosophy on the world philosophical stage. They were the forerunner and basis of the Scriptures. Saivism. That is why the two eyes of Shaivism are referred to as the thothirangal and shastras. Pathi, Cow and Affection are the three stools of Saiva Siddhantha. They are a mixture of pride, pride, delusion, and three stools of affection, with the knowledge of life. In order to remove the stools, the Lord gives life to the other two stools, maya kanma, and thereby removes three types of stools. The two types of yoga, the pure state of basic yoga, and the nirathara yoga of sukkuma state, is a method of forgetting itself. It is summarized that those who reach the Lord in the heart and worship Him incessantly will attain any stage of the four liberation sins.</p> 2021-07-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Maheswari K https://journals.asianresassoc.org/index.php/ijmrd/article/view/654 Theological concepts in Samanthar’s Devaram 2021-08-18T05:08:33+00:00 Allirajan K allirajan@gmail.com <p>A look at Tamil literature reveals a variety of concepts.

Gnanasambandar, one of the Nayanmars, speaks of the principle of godly ness that reaches Lord Shiva in his Tevarapan.

Through these terminologies, we can find out how language not only defines but tries to explain the world view of the native speakers. The kinship terms can also be used to identify and group the specific language with other languages with which it shares its common features under a common phylum. This paper is a study of the kinship terms and systems of Nocte, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Arunachal Pradesh. It has also been established as an endangered language. In this paper we look into Nocte Kinship terms, the system, the social structure and its affinity to the Proto-Tibeto-Burman roots.</p> 2021-08-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Trisha Wangno, Madhumita Barbora https://journals.asianresassoc.org/index.php/ijmrd/article/view/656 The concepts of Theological Principles in morality literatures and in the Holy Bible 2021-08-18T06:13:10+00:00 Bavliance A anthonybavliance8421@gmail.com <p>In the praise of the Lord who creates the world, the scriptures of the eighteen following books of the Sangamamaruviya period, and the Holy Book of Christianity, the Holy Book of Christianity, are of the Lord.

UNESCO has identified this region as a World Heritage Site. In Maharashtra, this mountain range is known as ‘Sahyadri’, ‘Dang forests’ in Gujarat, ‘Nilgiris’ in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, and ‘Malnad’ in Karnataka. It stretches across the six Indian states of Gujrat, Maharashtra, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and two union territories including Daman and Diu and Pondicherry. These hills begin near the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra, south of the Tapti river, and end at Kanyakumari, at the southern tip of India, covering an incredible 1,60,000 sq.km. In the 18<sup>th</sup> and 19<sup>th</sup> centuries, most of the people who classified the flora of these regions are hobbyists. Very few British Officers who conduct survey of this landscape release their books. A complete scientific study of this biodiversity hot-spot is yet to be undertaken. Until now, only a handful of scientists have undertaken a study of the Western Ghats. So, this present article expains a brief scientific study of the forests of the Western Ghats.</p> 2021-08-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Geethanjali T.M. https://journals.asianresassoc.org/index.php/ijmrd/article/view/661 A Brief Survey on the Sociolinguistic Pattern of Khelma (Sakachep) in Relation to the Mediating Role of Multilingualism among the Native Speakers 2021-09-01T04:02:42+00:00 Pushpa Renu Bhattacharyya dr.pushparb@gmail.com <p>Languages play a vital role in the formation of identity of a speech community with its unique features. The degree of usage of a language in various domains and the positive attitudes of the native speakers towards the language help to strengthen up and maintain the status, power and solidarity of the speech community. Very often the native speakers of the smaller known languages remain unaware of the risk of losing their language or about the process of language shifting. Today in the world of science and technology each and every speech community is practising multilingualism either directly or indirectly according to the demands of the basic needs in their daily lives. This paper is a result of an attempt to present a sociolinguistic survey on the language use, attitude and identity of native speakers of Khelma (Sakachep) in the district of Dima Hasao, Assam in North-East India towards their mother tongue as well as towards other languages spoken and used in different domains in the Khelma community according to their needs. The research work is carried out under CFEL, Tezpur University, Assam. Native speakers based on different age groups, gender, educational qualifications, occupational patterns, family types and as rural and urban dwellers were interviewed. The methods used for interview were personal interviews, group discussions, telephonic conversations and silent observations. The participants were asked a series of questions concerning their language, culture, traditions and also their feelings regarding other languages used in and around them.</p> 2021-09-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Pushpa Renu Bhattacharyya https://journals.asianresassoc.org/index.php/ijmrd/article/view/663 A Comparative study of Andra bhasha bhushanam and Tolkappiyam 2021-09-02T05:36:46+00:00 Savithri Ch savithritamiluniversity@gmail.com <p>This review examines the subject under five sub-headings: writing intent, writing structure, Type of techniques, vocabulary, and spelling observation.
