The best producing organism identified and characterized as <em>Pencilium oxalicum KRSS-S-FP10.</em> Taguchi was used to know active and independent variables screened by using PDA media variables was employed to derive statistical model (Response surface methodology: RSM) for optimizing the medium composition. The alkaline protease activity was in between 2.0U/mL to 10.76U/mL and The Delta value indicates the effect of component in the form of ranking has given to the variables. To confirm these results, experiments were carried out using RSM these nutrients with same concentrations and it was observed that the mean value of alkaline protease was 10.13U/mL as compared to the predicted value of 10.76U/mL using MINITAB. The final optimized medium has given approximately three-fold increase in alkaline protease production in comparison with one-factor-at-a-time (5.12U/mL) method.</p> Sarojini Chiluvuri Copyright (c) 2022 International Education and Research Journal (IERJ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-06-15 2022-06-15 8 6 ASSESSMENT THE RELATION BETWEEN VATAPRADHAN PRAKRUTI AND SATATSANDHISHABDGAMIN https://ierj.in/journal/index.php/ierj/article/view/2492 <p>The fundamental principles of Ayurveda are eternal and can be applied in any era. The principles of other sciences have changed from time to time, but the basic Principles of Ayurveda have not changed. Dosha, dhatu, mala are the basic components of the body. All Acharyas has given prime important to VATA in tridoshas. During the sara-kitta vibhajana, Vata is produced by kitta (mala). Sara-kitta vibhajana takes place in the koshtha. Vata word denotes Gati &amp; Gandha. Vata consists of Vayu and Aakash mahabhut in large quantity. Vata gunas are ruksha,sheet,laghu,sukshma,chal,vishad khar Vata dosha occupies all the places in the body especially Pakwashaya,Shroni,Guda Asthi &amp; Majja. There are 5 types of Vata.-Prana,Udana Vyana Samana apana. Vata is the initial factor for starting all the chesta (movements) of the body and mind. All seven dhatu does their function in the body because of vata. It plays important role in maintaining the agni,Utsaha, ucchwasa, nishwasa, chesta, veg-pravartana, akshepam patwen nimesha etc.</p> <p>Prakruti parikshana is included in Dashavidha pariksha by Acharya Charaka. Prakruti in garbha is stated and it is continued to be the prakruti of that person for lifetime. Dosha which are present in greater extent that dosha prakruti is said to be the prakruti of the person after the birth. So, the prakruti of some people is kaphaja,pittal, vatala, some people are having dvandvaja (two dosha together), and some are having Samadhatu prakruti i.e., all three dosha are present in equal extent.</p> <p>Gunas of Vayu are reflected in vata prakruti. Satata-shabdagamina is seen in sandhi of Vata prakruti persons which is a crackling sound of joints refers to non-sliminess cracked body part and constant sound in joints during movement.</p> <p>This study was done to assess the relation between Vatapradhan Prakruti and Satatsandhishabdgamin. 200 individuals were selected from both sexes of age group 20 to 40 years for screening. Detail information was taken of every individual to decide Prakruti of individual and research related data was collected by asking the questions to every individual. Chi square test-test of association was used to prove the relation between Vata pradhan prakruti and Satatsandhishabdagamin. Statistically it was proved that there is association between Vata pradhan prakruti and Satatsandhishabdagami.</p> Dr Siddheshwar Vaidya Dr Sumedh Wasnik Dr Neelam Vaidya Copyright (c) 2022 International Education and Research Journal (IERJ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-06-15 2022-06-15 8 6 A DESCRIPTIVE STUDY TO ASSESS THE DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND STRESS OF COVID-19 AMONG NURSING STUDENTS IN SELECTED COLLEGE AT VIRUDHUNAGAR https://ierj.in/journal/index.php/ierj/article/view/2495 <p>Covid-19 outbreak has affected not only physical health but also mental health and well-being.

The human civilization had never experienced such a turmoil situation in last hundred years before the outbreak of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-pandemic. COVID-19 pandemic has impacted different sectors of India, viz. economy, entertainment, religion, sports, transport and employment etc. Education is not an exception of that. Educational institutions (schools, colleges, and universities) in India till early 2020 were based only on traditional methods of learning, that is, they follow the traditional set up of face-to-face lectures in a classroom. Although many academic units had started blended learning, still a lot of them were stuck with old procedures. The sudden outbreak of the deadly disease called Covid-19 caused by a Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2) shook the entire world. The World Health Organization declared it as a pandemic. This situation challenged the education system across the world and forced educators to shift to an online mode of teaching overnight. In Indian context at least 320,713,810 students of different levels of education are affected out of which at least 34,337,594 students belong to higher education sector. Due to COVID-19, different aspects of Indian Higher Education sector witnessed drastic changes. In this paper the paradigm shifts in Indian higher education sector and their future prospects are discussed with some suggestive remarks in conclusion section.</em></p> Meghamitra Bagchi Copyright (c) 2022 International Education and Research Journal (IERJ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-06-15 2022-06-15 8 6 RIGHT TO INFORMATON ACT – 2005: A REVIEW https://ierj.in/journal/index.php/ierj/article/view/2497 <p>The Right to information or the right to freedom of information refers to an individual’s right or freedom to seek public information.

These, when taken in adequate amount at the right time provide stability to the body and improve <em>bala </em>(stremgth)<em>, varna </em>(complexion) and <em>upchaya </em>(metabolism) in the body. Among these, <em>nidra </em>plays a major role in one’s life. Adequate sleep leads to <em>arogya </em>(health)<em>, bala shukra vridhi </em>(increase in physical and reproductive strength) and <em>dhatusamyata </em>and healthy life which is the ultimate goal of Ayurveda. On the other hand, altered sleep leads to <em>bala hani </em>(loss of strength<em>), rugnavastha </em>(diseased state) or even death. So it can be said that abnormal or inadequate <em>nidra </em>can manifest in the form of <em>dhatuvikara</em>, making a person <em>atura </em>(diseased). For better economic gains, people are neglecting their daily needs of having proper <em>ahara, nidra </em>and other required <em>vihara </em>at proper time. Due to these reasons, people are becoming more prone towards diseased state. <em>Dashavidha-atura pariksha</em>, given by <em>Acharya Charak </em>is very unique and important concept of Ayurveda which is done to know <em>pramana </em>(magnitude) of <em>ayu </em>(life)<em>, dosha </em>and <em>bala </em>(strength) of <em>rogi</em>. <em>Dhatusara pariksha </em>is one among these which literally means essence of <em>dhatu</em>, possessing all good qualities in excellent standard without any defects. The present study was done to study the relationship of <em>nidra </em>on <em>dhatusarata</em>, with the purpose that people should understand the importance of <em>nidra </em>as only a healthy individual can lead to the formation of a healthy society.</p> Dr. Manisha Sharma Dr. Iqbal Singh Copyright (c) 2022 International Education and Research Journal (IERJ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-06-15 2022-06-15 8 6 A STUDY ON SCHOOL DROPOUTS IN THULUKKANKURICHI PANCHAYAT OF VEMBAKKOTTAI BLOCK https://ierj.in/journal/index.php/ierj/article/view/2500 <p>Dropout is a widespread occurrence in India's educational system, affecting all levels of education, all parts of the country, and all socioeconomic categories. Dropout rates are significantly higher in educationally underdeveloped states and districts. Nearly sixty years ago, India established a constitutional commitment to provide free and compulsory education to all children up to the age of 14. Even now, the aim, which was supposed to be fulfilled by 1960, remains elusive. The study's main goals are to determine the type of school dropouts in the study area, determine the reasons for school dropouts in the study area, investigate life style changes following school dropouts, and give valid remedies to the school dropout problem. The research is based on both primary and secondary sources of information. Alamelumangi puram, Keelachathiram, and Thulukkankurichi are the three hamlets that make up Thulukkankurichi Panchayat. The researcher gathered data from 60 dropout school pupils using the snowball sampling technique. According to the findings, school officials should educate children and their parents about the importance of education, and school officials should make special efforts to reach out to slow learners and weak pupils.</p> T.
