3. Fire and safety in building

The point of this examination was to analyze fire security measures and their practicality in structures, the necessary measures are innovation-based. Structures ought to be planned so that inhabitants can escape without help from anyone else in the event of a fire. In any case, contextual investigations show that inhabitants frequently are discovered unable to escape on schedule and generally subvert precautional estimates needed to stay away from or get away from fire. The investigation approach depended on occurrence assessments what's more, genuine analyses, for example, unannounced clearing drills. The potential outcomes of computer-generated reality for examining human conduct in flames are up until this point scarcely received by specialists. By the by, since in virtual conditions test people can be confronted with the marvel of fire in a protected manner, Data was too gathered from books, magazines, diaries, and related articles, the application of a social evaluation and examination device in augmented simulation is required to be a significant enhancement on the current examination techniques. In everyday little data is thought about genuine human conduct in an occasion of fire flare-up. Thusly, it is smarter to let the fire security of structures be founded on genuine human conduct in the fire. It is critical to edify tenants on security measures to be taken during fire flare-ups in and around their structures and other fire counteraction techniques to embrace for their wellbeing. The investigation suggested reasonable fire security measures in understanding to best practices after due assessment of existing fire security measures as it applies to clients and the adequacy of these actions.

4. Digital rupee – dissecting the viability of CBDC in India

Crypto Currencies are gaining widespread attention all around the globe. Given many of the disadvantages and high risks involved in crypto transactions, new emergent mechanisms of exchange like Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) are entering the market domain which seems relatively promising and less risky. Indian economy can be characterized by ever-rising Non Performing Assets (NPA), low money multiplier, tax evasion, poor tax base, the menace of black money, and high currency deposit ratio (CDR); our research finds that CBDC along with effective policy intervention mechanism can act as a panacea towards ebbing out such perplexities which the economy is confronting. Research points out the poor banking habit among the Indian population which is the primary driving force behind the big divorce between theoretical and actual money multiplier in India. Implementation of CBDC has the requisite potential towards developing banking habits in the masses. Akin to two faces of a coin, with charms come concerns and in the same consonance implementation of CBDC also poses some daunting challenges. First and foremost is the concern of data security in the contemporary milieu when the advancement of science and technology is at its zenith and concomitantly cyber crimes have been witnessing a spur. However, CBDC is a form of cryptocurrency which is characterized by the storage of data using blockchain technology. Under the blockchain framework of data storage, pieces of data are stored in a decentralized manner which makes data theft and deletion an arduous task for cybercriminals. The use of mechanisms like ‘Tokenization’ can also contribute towards securing the data of depositors and preventing frauds and scams. Another impediment in the way is the existing digital divide in the economy, however, implementation of CBDC mechanism in a phased and targeted manner can curb out this impediment to a greater extent. The unprecedented economic crisis owing to the pandemic might have devastating implications in the future and in order to rejuvenate and get all cylinders firing for the Indian economy, CBDC implementation is a dire exigency given the implementation is efficient and in a phased and targeted manner.

6. Air conditioning using Peltier effect

The current air-conditioning system does cooling by refrigerant gases such as Freon, CFCs, etc. While these refrigerants provide good output, their major disadvantage is the emission of harmful gases that damage the ozone layer. A way to overcome this issue is by making use of air conditioners that use thermoelectric modules for cooling, which work by the Peltier effect. These models do not emit any harmful agents, thereby protecting the environment. This project discussed in the paper deals with the study of those thermoelectric air conditioners using the Peltier module. Conventional compressor run cooling equipment has more limitations related to energy efficiency and Chloro-Fluro Carbon (CFC) refrigerants use. Both these factors indirectly point to the impending scenario of global warming. As most of the electricity generation relies on coal power plants, which add greenhouse gases to the atmosphere is the more cause of global warming. Thermoelectric air conditioners have multiple advantages over conventional air conditioners, like, they are smaller in size, they weigh less, have high reliability, have no mechanically moving parts, and no working fluid. This paper focuses on a Peltier Based Air conditioner that will be easily portable

7. A study on crack propagation and life expectancy

Cracks are the most common flaws that are usually observed occurring on metallic surfaces, however, the existence of a crack on any material deteriorates the overall strength of the component and in turn, becomes the prominent reason for the failure of the component. The purpose of this research is to find out the behavior of a crack when the component is put to undergo cyclic loading. The study of cracks comes under the section of the vast concept of 'Fracture Mechanics’. The concept gives detailed information about the formation and expansion of cracks and also contributes largely in determining the probable failure time of a component under cyclic or fatigue loads. It’s important to know the life of a component keeping the existence of a crack of even the smallest size under consideration. The project uses concepts and information from fracture mechanics and forecasts the process of propagation of cracks on metal and determines its life under a given loaded condition. To determine the life of the component pre-established relations and formulae are used and results are obtained using a numeric and graphical approach.

8. The intelligent agent-based information security model for cloud

Today’s era is the era of cloud computing and agent-based processing. Data security and integrity are achieved by information security systems, which ensure the continuity of business and protect organizations against potential risks. Information security systems are used to estimate the risks and search the place of the occurrence of the risks. It should also be able to measure the risk consequences associated with cloud organizations. The cloud organizations must analyze the information system processes and they should develop their own information systems based on the analysis. This paper proposes a comprehensive Agent-Based Information Security framework for Cloud Computing. We have considered risk assessment methods for calculating consequences by focussing on potential threats, assets, vulnerabilities, and their associated measures. A decision system for the organizations is created by taking the help of intelligent (smart) and software agents that are used to fetch and group the relevant information used in a framework that decides against threats based on information provided by the security agents. We have used a fuzzy inference system based upon fuzzy set theory for creating a decision system.

10. Augmented cut and paste

Augmented reality (AR) is an intelligent involvement of a real-world environment where the objects that dwell inside the world are upgraded by computer-generated perceptual data, now and then over numerous sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory, and olfactory. AR is regularly characterized as a framework that fulfills three essential highlights: a blend of genuine and virtual universes, real-time interaction, and exact 3D enlistment of virtual and genuine objects. The overlaid sensory information can be constructive (i.e. additive to the natural environment), or destructive (i.e. masking of the natural environment). This involvement is consistently interlaced with the physical world such it’s seen as an immersive angle of the vital environment. In human–computer interaction and interface plan, cut, duplicate and glue are related commands that give an inter-process communication method for exchanging information through a computer’s interface. The cut command evacuates the chosen information from its unique position, whereas the duplicate command makes a copy; in both cases, the chosen information is kept in transitory capacity (the clipboard). The information from the clipboard is afterward embedded wherever a glue command is issued. The information remains accessible to an application supporting the highlight, in this way permitting simple information exchange between applications. With modern developments in machine learning, it's possible to accurately detect people and objects around us, remove the background automatically and transfer the result to a computer. To date, AR had been utilized to venture advanced pictures into the genuine world. However, the “AR Cut & Copy” app reverses the process and brings physical things into the digital world.

15. Driver drowsiness detection system

Making insightful systems to prevent minor accidents can be particularly incredible in limiting the difficulty and loss of life. Street crashes and related types of mishaps are a typical reason for injury and death among the human population. One of the elements which assume a significant part in mishaps is the human blunders including driving exhaustion depending on new brilliant methods; this application recognizes the indications of weariness and lethargy despite the individual at the hour of driving. The proposed framework depends on three separate calculations. In this model, the individual’s face is monitored by a camera in the initial step by getting 14-16fps video grouping. At that point, the pictures are changed from RGB space into YCbCr and HSV spaces. The face territory is isolated from different parts and exceptionally precise HDP is accomplished. That the eyes are open or shut in a particular time span is controlled by zeroing in on thresholding and conditions concerning the balance of human appearances. The proposed framework has been carried out in excess of thirty distinctive video successions with normal precision of93.18 and a discovery rate (DR) of 92.71 out of approximately 2500 picture outlines. High precision in the division, low blunder rate, and fast preparation of information recognize this framework from comparable ones. This framework can limit the number of mishaps brought about by drivers’ exhaustion.

17. Task scheduling in the cloud computing using an improved cuckoo search algorithm

Cloud computing is an advanced internet resources network that is used by many users remotely. The resources include software, hardware, and various applications. The main challenge in cloud computing is task scheduling due to numerous requests are generated simultaneously from remote locations. To overcome this challenge, task scheduling algorithms are designed that appropriately arrange the tasks. In the literature, metaheuristic algorithms have been deployed for optimal task scheduling. The most popular algorithms are genetic algorithm, particle swarm, and cuckoo search algorithm. However, if the initial population of these algorithms is properly not defined then it is easily trapped into the local optimal solution and causes low precision. In this paper, we have overcome this issue and designed an improved cuckoo search algorithm. In the proposed method, the initial population is defined using the chaotic map algorithm and after cuckoo search algorithm is applied to determine optimal task scheduling. The experimental results show that the proposed method is superior in terms of convergence rate, makespan, average waiting time, and average turnaround time as compared to the existing algorithm.

18. Optimization of bio-composite helmet

The primary aim of our project is to increase the safety of helmet users and also to reduce the usage of plastic. This led us to the idea of BIO-COMPOSITE HELMET. Generally, bio-composite materials are synthesized using natural fibers as reinforcements together with matrix due to their low density with high specific mechanical strength, availability, renewability, degradability. The present work attempts to make an improvement in the existing helmet manufacturing process. The materials that are used have better mechanical properties in order to enhance the compatibility between fibers and the matrix. The biocomposites are prepared using unsaturated polyester matrix and fibers such as coconut coir and areca using hand lay-up method with appropriate proportions to result in helmet shell structure. The fabricated helmets will be evaluated for their mechanical properties such as hardness, impact strength, and compression strength. Thus, we constructed bio-composite helmets that have highly strong and environmentally friendly.

22. Gender bias at workplace and the remedial measures

Despite the substantial rise in the number of women joining the workforce, gender parity continues to suffer, especially at higher positions. In India, 85% of working women claim to have missed out on a promotion or hike because of their gender. About two-thirds of working women (63%) and working mothers (69%) say they faced discrimination at work due to familial and household responsibilities. It is the need of the hour for organizations to reimagine their diversity practices and offer greater flexibility to caregivers, to increase female participation in the workforce. Reduced and flexible schedules, more sabbaticals, and new opportunities to upskill and learn are critical offerings that can help organizations attract, hire, and retain more female talent. Gender bias is the tendency to prefer one gender over another. It is a form of unconscious bias, or implicit bias, which occurs when one individual unconsciously attributes certain attitudes and stereotypes to another person or group of people.

23. A literature review on EELS – Intrinsic characteristic of producing electric current

An eel scientifically known as Anguilliformes is a fish consisting of ray fins which belong to the Actinopterygii family i.e. family of eels in freshwater. It has 8 suborders, 19 families and 119 genera, and somewhere around 800 species. Eels have various intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics which alter and develop when they grow physically. Eels have an elongated structure (long length fish) with a length ranging from 5cm to 4m and weighing from 30g-25kg (in adults). Eels swim by generating waves from their body structure .they can swim in both forward and reverse directions forming body waves. They generally reside in deep waters or sea in holes called “eel’s pit”. Some of the eels may stay at freshwaters but they too will come back to the seas for breeding. There are two types of eels that are commonly seen one is deep-sea spiny eels and the other is the electric eels producing an electric current of high voltage. Both these characteristics of eels help them from protecting themselves from predators. This review paper considers the lather characteristics of the eels of producing electric current using their own intrinsic characters and how they behave during the act of producing current

27. Role of the Fair-Trade Organisation on the status of women producers with respect to global trade

The fair-trade movement began in the year 1946, in America at the time when handicrafts were being imported. The concept of fair trade soon gained popularity in the U.S. and also spread to Europe. The foundation of the fair trade movement was based on the fact that the producers receive a fair price for their produce. FT program began with the handicrafts and soon expanded to other products like coffee, banana, sugar, tea, wine. It was in the mid-1980s when the model of fair trade came into the picture and at that time, progressive entrepreneurs including Paul Katzeff started importing coffee from Nicaragua so as to support the Sandinista farmers. The plight of the Nicaraguan farmers was such that they were suffering from starvation and malnutrition at the time when the U.S. boycotted their country’s goods. A national standard for fair trade certification came into existence which was founded in the year 1997 as an umbrella organization with the aim to collaborate and coordinate this system of fair trade across the world. In the backdrop of Fair Trade, the study aims to analyze the impact of the Fair-Trade Organization on the status of women producers in the field of global trade. It seeks to understand the role played by FTO in reducing the gender gap by taking into consideration the gender inequalities in global trade. Further, it focuses on the effectiveness of FTO in terms of the participation of women producers in global trade and also the benefits received by the women producers after its establishment. This study will help in better understanding the role played by Fairtrade in addressing the various issues faced by women producers and how effective it has been in reducing gender inequality in global trade.

30. Underwater image enhancement using improved Particle Swarm Optimization

The underwater images are used for monitoring the underwater pipelines and aquaculture. However, obtaining a clear image is a difficult task due to light scattering and absorption issues. Due to these issues, a very low contrast, blur, and color distortion underwater image is obtained. To overcome these issues, enhancement algorithms have been designed. In the literature, conventional algorithms are used for enhancement purposes are histogram equalization, stretching, and power-law expression. However, these algorithms over-enhance the images if proper parameters are not taken under consideration. Therefore, swarm-based optimization algorithms have been used to determine the optimal values of these parameters. In this paper, we have designed an improved particle swarm optimization-based enhancement algorithm. In the proposed method, initially, pre-processing of the underwater image is done and its channels are extracted. After that, based on the mean values of the channels, the channels are classified into three types, namely, superior, intermediate, and inferior. Based on the superior channel, gain factors are determined and enhance the intermediate and inferior channels. Next, the power-law expression is applied to the inferior and intermediate channels to enhances its gamma value. The gamma value in the proposed algorithm is determined using an improved particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm. In the improved PSO algorithm, the initial population of the PSO algorithm is defined using a chaotic map algorithm therefore PSO algorithm does not fall into the local optimal solution. In the last, contrast-limited adaptive histogram equalization (CLAHE) for enhancement. The experimental results are performed for the standard dataset images and simulated in MATLAB. Further, qualitative and quantitative analysis is done for the proposed algorithm. The results show that the proposed algorithm is superior as compared to the existing algorithms

37. Implementation of digital watermarking using hybrid decomposition for cryptography applications

A method of depicting a novel image based on wave discrete conversion (DWT), Hessenberg decomposition (HD), and single-digit decomposition (SVD) is suggested in this paper. The embedding process is done first and in this process, the host image deteriorates into multiple sub-bands with multilevel DWT, and the resulting coefficients are used as inputs for Hessenberg decomposition. Simultaneously, the watermark works on SVD. The watermark is finally attached to the host image with the measurement feature. This proposed method is compared to other research activities under various spoof attacks, such as filter, noise, JPEG compression, JPEG2000 compression, and sharpening of the attack. The test results show that the proposed image display has a good trade-off between durability and invisibility even if the watermarks are large in size.

41. Smart car monitoring system

In today’s 21st-century road safety has become a crucial part of a human’s life. Nowadays the number of vehicles is increasing day by day and so the amount of road accidents is also increasing. There are different causes of these accidents such as drunk and drive, overspeeding, the distraction of driver, drowsiness of the driver, avoiding safety gears like seat belts and helmets. So, in order to provide a solution, we have come up with an idea that will help solve this problem. This system has two foremost features. Firstly the system will make sure that if the driver is drunk, a warning message will be displayed on LCD. In spite of the fact if the driver continues to drive a car, there will be fuel cut off which will make the car slow and eventually stop the car. Secondly, if any accident occurs in the middle of the journey then an emergency message will be sent to the nearby Hospital, Police station, and to a relative of the victim. This system provides a way to avoid road accidents which will reduce the number of road accidents.

43. Modeling and simulation of Load Frequency Controller using Genetic Algorithms Technique

In an interconnected multi-area power system, as a power load demand varies randomly, which results in the variation of frequency, thus leading to load frequency control problem (LFC). The main goals of Load Frequency Control (LFC) are, to hold the frequency and the desired power output in the interconnected power system at the scheduled values and to control the change in the tie-line power flow between control areas. This research involves the load frequency control is done by PI and PID controller, which is a conventional controller. In order to overcome drawbacks, a new Genetic Algorithm-based controller is presented to quench the deviations in the frequency and the tie-line power due to different load disturbances. The proposed controller guarantees the stability of the overall closed-loop system. Simulation results for a real three-area power system prove the effectiveness of the proposed LFC and show its superiority over a classical PID controller and a PI controller.

45. Micropiles for mitigation of landslide in the residential area of North Sikkim region

The vulnerability of large landslides takes place due to many anthropogenic and natural factors. Frequent collapse and triggering of landslide take place in active foothills of the Himalayan region. The main primary factors causing destabilization of the slope include rainwater infiltration in the topmost weathered layer, earthquake forces, and local inhabitant activities. A vulnerable landslide zone having a residential area is envisaged in ‘Mangan’, North Sikkim, India. An interesting factor affecting the slope stability in the area under study has been noticed that in addition to rainwater and earthquake forces; the other forces being sewer line carrying wastewater outfall of households across sections. The long-term disposal and subsequent accumulation of sewer water caused an increase in pore space and overall density of soil due to saturation, rainwater additionally reduces cohesion of overlying mass causing slip-off from the parent strata. Preliminary stability analysis has been carried out for critical sections using LEM slide software and the effect of intermediate micropiles (Zinc-Chromium coated stainless steel) has been evaluated using the FEM technique. It has been seen that the top 100 m of slant length of the slope is quite unstable. Accordingly, intermediate series of micro piles have been installed with profiled benches in the unstable slope. Superstructure loads from the residential zone lying on the slope profile and vehicular loads at the road level have been considered for severe conditions. Furthermore, the location and length of micropile have been optimized based on concentrated stresses and strength reduction factors. It has been observed that there is a 48.5% and 37.8% increase in safety factors under static conditions and seismic conditions respectively. Analysis shows that micropiles work effectively in controlling local displacements due to sliding and add global stability to the affected region.

63. Glacial lakes outburst floods GLOF in the Indian Himalayas – A geotechnical resilient exemplification of hazard assessment

A glacial lake outburst flood occurs when the dam blocking the glacier's path collapses. The dam may comprise glacier ice or a terminal moraine, eroded material from the sides and bottom of a valley, which the glacier pushes to the front. The collapse may occur due to erosion, build-up of water pressure, an avalanche, heavy snow, earthquake, volcanic eruption under the ice, or if a large portion of a glacier breaks off and massively displaces the waters in a glacial lake at its base. When the outburst occurs, water dammed by a glacier or a moraine is released. Glacial lakes may hold millions to hundreds of millions of cubic meters of water. Catastrophic failure of the containing ice or glacial sediment can release this water over a period of minutes or a few days.

67. The Physiological Challenges of Yeong-Hye In Han Kang’s “The Vegetarian”

“The Physiological Challenges of Yeong-hye in Han Kang’s The Vegetarian” discusses on how a protagonist’s sudden decision to stop eating meat altered her own-self physically. It was the recurring dream that occurred to Yeong-hye continuously and strenuously, that made her avoid eating meat and food altogether. Throughout the novel, she spoke nothing but her act of defiance spoke louder than anything else. Yeong-hye had to battle her wars physiologically in The Vegetarian against vegetarianism, eroticism, sexual harassment, familial conflicts, violence both internally and outwardly, misinterpretations, schizophrenia, social, cultural and the traditional norms in order to conquer in becoming a full-fledged plant. The protagonist fought the battles strenuously, with determination and consistency. She might have failed, but not her resolution. It was rather a searing, scary, bizarre, terrific and an upsetting novel, in which the loss of appetite of the protagonist to eat food increases the appetite of the readers to ponder upon the lives’ choices on a phenomenal level.

80. Factors of Realism and Idealism in Indian Foreign Policy

Actors, Factors and Dynamics are the driving force of International Relations (IR). Ideologies often work as a beacon, shield or a guide for a nation while making of its foreign policy. Idealism and realism have been two most dominant ideologies of IR during 19th and 20th century. Both of them are continuously contesting to hegemonies each other since then. This research paper is an attempt to explain the continuity and explore the changes and examine the future implications of theory of idealism and realism on Indian foreign policy. The post independent Nehruvian Foreign Policy which was predominantly idealist with the pinch of realism in few instances like adopting mixed economic model and leadership of Non- Alignment Movement (NAM). The research work passes through Mrs. Indira Gandhi era, which was absolutely an era of realism in Indian foreign policy. Then Rajiv Gandhi government believed in a balance of both the ideas and maintained a status – quo. During 1990s despite of political turmoil foreign policy was guided with realism which opened Indian economy and doors of globalization. Economic considerations remained predominant factor to determine national interest. After 1998 the government under A. B. Vajpayee also followed realism as the guiding principal of foreign policy, which was continued by UPA government under Dr. Manmohan Singh till 2014. The change of regime in 2014 brought NDA government led by a strong and most popular leader Narendra Modi in power. He has made foreign policy and IR a vibrant policy area. Through his extensinve outreach to nations, leaders and people he left inedible footprints of realism in Indian foreign policy. This paper has looked into role of realism and idealism as a guiding principal in Indian foreign policy in its core (SAARC), periphery (Asia) and intruder (America, AU, EU, Latin America etc.) areas. It culminates with a possibility of extensive research in this area in future.

In this modern era of “Construction Technology", the industry is parting with old techniques, researching for better alternatives and opting the state-of-the-art techniques for better and satisfactory output. In this review study, the various tunnel construction techniques have been discussed with special attention to TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine) technology. The study highlights the importance and practicability of modern TBM in contrast with traditional methods of tunnel boring/ underground excavations. Timeline of the technological advancements in TBMs have been discussed in detail. The study describes different types of TBMs, components, applicability in different geological conditions. The study explores, the history of TBM, its various types, excavation tools, muck management, tunneling works like tunnel lining, tail-skin seal and grouting, surveying and guidance systems, comparison of tunnel boring machine and conventional excavation techniques, various risks it is exposed to during transport, assembly, erection, testing, boring of a tunnel and disassembly. Apart from this, various challenges involved while working with TBMs have also been discussed and suitable corrective measures have been suggested. It has been observed that if the geological conditions are not identified or if known to be poor, construction workers need to carefully consider whether to use the TBM method or follow a more traditional approach. An optimal scheme should be suggested after analyzing geological conditions, construction progress, economic benefits and environmental impact. However, a number of tunnel boring machines are available with very high advancing speed and do not have many limitations. TBM technology has revolutionized underground space creation under the cities and allows easy construction of metro systems, water and sewage systems, and underground cable networks while maintaining safe and sustainable built environment. However, as different types of TBM are available, their suitability for different soil conditions revolves around the correct choice of TBM and the level of experience of the operator.

86. Design and Analysis of Tidal Compressed Air Electricity Generator

This project aims to extract as much energy as possible from ocean waves/ tides to shift the dependency of power generation from conventional sources. With the world now veering to electric vehicles, the electricity demand will increase rapidly. A Mechanical system is designed to utilize tidal or wave energy to compress air. The system includes a reciprocating compressor (piston contained in a chamber including an air intake port). This unit is connected to a storage tank with a non-return valve. The piston is driven by a lever arm which on the other end is attached to a movable power transfer shaft. A float is present on the lower end of the rod and is set in the ocean. As the float is displaced upwardly by waves, so are the rod and the lever arm compelling the piston at another end to compress air. The compressed air is stored at a high pressure in a storage tank. Multiple compressor units will aid in filling the tank faster and reducing the load on the compressor. The compressed air is then transferred from the storage tank to a turbine, where electricity is generated. The calculations are carried out for the complete setup while taking standard turbine data. The project mainly focuses on the design and analysis of Storage Tank (structural), buoy (structural and Hydrodynamic simulation) and motion study on the entire setup. The aim is to produce 3 MW power in one cycle (approx. 12 hours).

92. PCB fault detection using Artificial Intelligence

PCB (Printed circuit board) is that the fundamental carrier in electronic devices on which a number of small electronic components are placed. The performance of devices is affected largely by a fault in PCB. To overcome the inefficiency of manual detection, time, and cost, automated optical inspection (AOI) supported machine vision has been widely utilized in the industry. As PCB designs get more and more complicated, the tasks like detection and classification also get more harder than before. For the purpose of solving the above problems, we have proposed a PCB fault detection system using machine learning. The system will automatically detect the PCB with the help of computer vision and compare it with the working PCB image which will be already saved in the database. After comparison, the application will be able to tell whether PCB is working or faulty and likewise generate a report. It will also recommend a solution to faulty PCB.

93. Survey on lane detection techniques

Every year, a large number of persons are killed in highway departure crashes due by driver inattention. Because safety is the primary goal of these systems, lane detecting systems can help prevent accidents. Such systems are designed to detect lane markings and alert the driver if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane. Several lane identification systems have been proposed and effectively proven in recent years. The hybrid median filter was used in this study to provide a noble strategy for lane detecting. Lane detection is used in a variety of intelligent vehicle applications, including lane trip recognition and warning boards, intelligent journey control, and autonomous driving. The majority of previous research has ignored the use of image filtering algorithms.

95. Smart Resource Alert

As technology is becoming more advanced, the world is heading to a state of huge energy scarcity. The existing resources are depleting at an alarming rate and people are struggling to find alternative sources of energy.On the contrary, a lot of valuable energy is getting wasted too in the form of a fault or leakage, commonly seen at our households.We propose an approach to keep track of energy and water usage at our households and thus alerting the consumers in the form of an application. The energy sensor ACS712 and the flow sensor YFS201 are used to measure the amount of energy and water consumed. The signals are sent as interrupt to the microcontroller where calculations are processed. A Wi-Fi module ESP8266 is used to upload the data to the cloud which can then be accessed by the user in the form of an application which keeps track of the usage and notifies the consumer. Extra features like gas leak detection can also be included in the application.

102. Pivot influence: CEO change and their focal domain

The paper assesses how a CEO change of a firm and his/her respective focal domain influences the intensity of the firm’s pivot. During the research, we derive two hypotheses based on a pivot and the various associated parameters. The first hypothesis is that a CEO change in the firm will create higher intensity to pivot within the firm. The second being that a higher intensity to pivot will occur if the CEO of a firm is a domain outsider rather than a domain insider. Furthermore, in examining the United States (US) photovoltaic (PV) industry, we found that contrary to the first hypothesis, there is a lower intensity to pivot for a firm when a CEO change occurs. For the second hypothesis, if the CEO is categorized into a focal domain (domain insider and domain outsider), we find that a firm has higher intensity to pivot if the CEO is a domain outsider.

126. Overview of fast dissolving tablets of Bisoprolol Fumarate and its patented products

Recently, fast-dissolving drug delivery systems have started gaining popularity and acceptance as one such example with increased consumer choice, for the reason of rapid disintegration or dissolution, self-administration even without water or chewing. Various formulations were prepared by direct compression method using different concentrations of crospovidone (2-8%) and croscarmellose sodium (2-8%) as super disintegrants. Formulations were evaluated for precompression parameters and post compressional parameters like uniformity of weight, thickness, hardness, friability, drug content, wetting time, the water absorption ratio, in vitro disintegration time, and in vitro dissolution study. These kinds of dosage forms are also convenient for children, elderly patients with swallowing difficulties, and in the absence of potable liquids. Zydis products are packed in blister packs to protect the formulation from moisture in the environment. Nano-crystal technology avoids manufacturing processes such as granulation, blending, and tableting, which is more advantageous for highly potent and hazardous drugs. Flash Tab Technology involves the preparation of a rapidly disintegrating tablet, which consists of an active ingredient in the form of microcrystals. Oraquick utilizes taste-masking microspheres technology called a micro mask, which provides superior mouth feel, significant mechanical strength, and quick disintegration/dissolution of product. Flash Dose Technology consists of a self-binding shear form matrix termed as "floss". Shearform matrices are prepared by flash heat processing.

127. Pothole and object detection with respect to the speed of a vehicle using sensors in Arduino UNO board

Pothole detection is important while driving a car to reduce the number of accidents. This will also in turn prevent the vehicle from severe damage in terms of tire. In a densely populated country like India, it is also important to track whether any human being or any object is coming across a vehicle in high road and notifying its driver to reduce the speed and prevent road accidents. In order to detect the pothole and to track any human being or an object, the primary necessity is to have GPS for obtaining the location of the vehicle. This paper aims at proposing a pothole detection and object indicator system in a vehicle which will indicate the presence of potholes or any other object within a range of 20m.

128. A critical analysis of wage inequalities in urban and rural sectors in India

we examine that there is an enormous gap among rural and urban areas regarding wage disparities in India. We study the time frame 1983-2005 utilizing family unit study information from progressive rounds of the National Sample Survey. We locate that this period has been described by a huge narrowing of the distinctions in schooling, occupation, dissemination, and wages between people in country India and their metropolitan partners. We locate that singular attributes don't seem to represent quite a bit of this union. Our outcomes recommend that approach mediations preferring country zones may have been key in initiating these time arrangement designs. The investigation likewise recommended a similarly a high gender wage gap in different classifications of exercises. It is astounding to locate that in India the compensation divergence exists essentially due to huge pay distinction inside the different classes of laborers. Further, the assessment of the wellsprings of pay contrast uncovers that gender wage gap is a part of the result of separation in compensation dispersion against women laborers. wage differentials are available among different gatherings and areas of the economy. The essential inspiration of this paper is to research the design of pay imbalance and work in India with the 60th cycle (2005-06) family unit review on business and joblessness directed by the National Sample Survey Office. The examination gauges completely various components of pay disparity as seen in the Indian work market by utilizing the Gini imbalance file. In breaking down the design of compensation imbalance it thinks about three significant areas, people in general, private formal and casual areas. Compensation disparity in the private conventional area is higher than the imbalance even in the casual area. Pay differentials in India are higher in rural areas when contrasted with metropolitan regions, and are higher among ladies than among men laborers.

129. Alcohol sensing engine locking system

Nowadays consuming alcohol and driving is the leading cause of many road accidents. The driving person is not in stable condition so the driving is also inconvenient for the other drivers and it is also question to damage of life of person, property and for others too. In this project, we are developing a system that will automatically lock the engine whenever it senses the person is drunk. The input for the system is in the form of a sensor i.e alcohol sensor which is attached to the controller. Our proposed system would be constantly monitoring the driver’s breath by placing it on the driver steering or somewhere the driver's breath can be constantly monitored by it. So if the driver is drunk and tried to drive, the system detects alcohol presence in his/her breath and locks the engine so that the vehicle fails to start. In another case, if the driver is not drunk while he starts the vehicle and the engine is started but he/she drinks while driving, the sensor still able to detect alcohol in his breath and stops the engine so that the car would not further accelerate and the driver can steer it to the roadside. In this project, we have used an Arduino microcontroller interfaced with an alcohol sensor and a dc motor to demonstrate the working of this project.

132. Footstep power generation

The Invented device acts as a converting tool that generate electricity using pressure. This can be used for public locations like malls, shopping centers, railway stations, bus stations etc. Therefore, these devices can be installed publicly in situations where people are walking, and that they need to run or step on this device so as to pass or enter/exit their destination. This systems will then produce voltage about each and every move of the feet. For this reason piezoelectric sensor is often usually used to calculate power, stress and vibration via its transformation into electrical signals. This method provides voltmeter for measurement of performance, led lamps, mass measuring device and batteries for better demonstration of machine. If pressure is exerted on a piezoelectric sensor, it can transform the pressure into electrical energy. The current voltage within the motion is stored in batteries. The output power generated from its sensor is used to move the DC charges. Here we have used AT89S52 to show how much battery gets charged. Also, a Wifi-enabled IoT system determines how often voltage is generated from the source of the signal. Using the users\' IoT-based tracking, the data can be used to gain power that is intended.

148. Morse code based Secured Authentication System using Eye Blink through Haar Cascade and Facial Landmark Algorithm

Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) are widely used for user authentication and safety for security reasons. Users must enter a physical PIN to use PIN-based password authentication, which can be susceptible to password cracking or hacking. This model includes a real-time application for gaze-based PIN input, eye recognition and tracking, and a smart camera for Morse code PIN identification. To overcome the existing limitation, we proposed a security system in two features, one is PIN authentication using eye blinks PIN entry with Morse code, and other one is provides a safer password entry alternative. Finding the eye blinks through the Morse code, in which numbers are represented in points and dashes, which will be used to make the password authentication and creating the PIN is referred to as eye blinks-based authentication. Enhancing the conventional PIN entry by adding eye-blink based PIN entry with Morse code to provide an additional level of security is the motivation behind this work.

149. Timely Detection of Fire and Animal Intrusion in Agricultural Land Using IoT and CNN

Agricultural fields near forest areas often become the centre of human-animal conflict. Due to increased deforestation and destruction of wild-life habitat, animals venture out of forest areas in search of food. Other major consequence of deforestation is forest fire and poaching. As solution to the issues specified, technology can help to detect and warn potential human-animal interference near forest areas. On detection of fire near the agricultural land, pump is turned on automatically to put off the fire. On detection of movement through IR sensor, camera is turned on to identify the animal or human intruder using YOLO (You Only Look Once) algorithm. If an animal is detected, animal specific sound repellent is played to drive the animal away. If any human with weapons is identified, then an alarm is raised to alert neighbours of possible poacher and intruder. The farmer is alerted by means of an alert message.

COVID-19's global pandemic has had a massive effect on global health, impacting over 139 million people worldwide. Wearing face masks and keeping a 2-meter gap between each other will help to avoid the spread. We propose a computer vision-based pathogen for creating a protected environment that contributes to public safety that focuses on real-time automatic surveillance of people in public places in order to recognize face masks, healthy social distance, and normal body temperature. When any of the above conditions are breached, the device sends out an alert to the authorized person. As a result, the proposed method saves time and slows the spread of the corona virus, all of which are beneficial to society. It may be useful in the current case, where the lockout is being eased to allow people to be inspected in public areas, shopping malls and other locations.

160. COVID Detection using X-ray

As we know about the Covid-19 virus that has shaken everyone around the globe. People get affected to this deadly virus physically & mentally and due to bad medical facilities in some countries it has become difficult to handle this large crowd of patients rushing to the hospitals. COVID-19 tests kits were hard to come by, there are simply not enough of them and they cannot be manufactured fast enough, which is causing panic. When there’s panic, there are nefarious people looking to take advantage of others, namely by selling fake COVID-19 test kits after finding victims on social media platforms and chat applications. Since COVID-19 attacks the epithelial cells that line our respiratory tract, we can use X-rays images to analyse the health of a patient’s lungs. And given that nearly all hospitals have X-ray imaging machines, it could be possible to use X-rays to test for COVID-19 without the dedicated test kits. This project uses TensorFlow and Keras and deep learning using CNN algorithm to train the model.

175. IoT based remote railway signaling system

Cancellation and delay of trains is a very common problem that the Railways faces during heavy fog in winters especially in Northern Regions of India. One of the key reasons for the delay is the inability of the engine drivers to see the light signals from a faraway distance. The solution aims to provide a feasible way to overcome this problem by implementing an IoT based remote railway signaling system which is highly reliable, cost efficient, scalable, and robust for practical Indian conditions. The system is divided into three phases. In the first phase, wireless transmitters (NRF modules) are installed in the signal posts along with corresponding receivers in the train engines. Therefore when the signal turns red or green, the wireless transmitter will send the signal to the train on that track approaching towards the signal. The train will receive the signal and a red or green bulb will be switched on in the engine control dashboard inside the driver’s cabin itself. The driver will thus know that the status of the signal ahead without depending on the visibility of distant light signals. The second phase couples the signal posts with a GPRS module (SIM900A) to provide internet connectivity and a connection to the AWS cloud through an IoT technology stack. This will allow Railways to set up centralized control rooms and control the signals in real time remotely. The third phase is a proposal to increase the efficiency of the system by connecting multiple signal posts to one GPRS gateway module through an ad-hoc network through LoRa technology. This phase is just a proposal for future work. The system aims to be designed to suit Indian conditions. Hence it has been made cost efficient by using only minimal components while being easy to use and scalable so that it can be implemented on a national level.

179. Contagion buster contact tracing with app Integration

Some of the recent developments in data science for worldwide disease control have involved research of large-scale feasibility and usefulness of digital contact tracing, user location tracking, and proximity detection on users’ mobile devices or wearables. A centralized solution relying on collecting and storing user traces and location information on a central server can provide more accurate and timely actions than a decentralized solution in combating viral outbreaks, such as COVID-19. However, centralized solutions are more prone to privacy breaches and privacy attacks by malevolent third parties than decentralized solutions, storing the information in a distributed manner among wireless networks. Thus, it is of timely relevance to identify and summarize the existing privacy-preserving solutions, focusing on decentralized methods, and analyzing them in the context of mobile device-based localization and tracking, contact tracing, and proximity detection. Wearables and other mobile Internet of Things devices are of particular interest in our study, as not only privacy, but also energy-efficiency, targets are becoming more and more critical to the end-users. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of user location-tracking, proximity-detection, and digital contact-tracing solutions in the literature from the past two decades, analyses their advantages and drawbacks concerning centralized and decentralized solutions, and presents the authors’ thoughts on future research directions in this timely research field.

In this situation guidance plays an important role to curve one’s career. As it is an online platform it will be feasible for everyone to reach it easily. Stream guidance and student is an extremely broad and a comprehensive concept, in order to implement this task effectively there are number of factors that need to be taken under consideration. The guidance regarding one’s career and the counselling of students involves a conversation between a stream counsellor; who should be an expert in his field, he should possess all the skills, abilities, knowledge and information regarding the job openings, prospects, opportunities that are available and possess the ability to effectively communicate with the person who is seeking counselling and guidance. Due to this pandemic situation as 10th students have been promoted, they need a proper guidance to select their stream. So as we are not able to move out of our door steps one can take benefit of these online consultation and choose their stream wisely. In this project, we have conducted research in order to recognize the significance of stream guidance and student counselling; the main areas that have been underscored in this project is how in this pandemic online counselling as gained importance and why is it so mandatory to go for online consultation.

184. AR based smart education in android platform using unity

Augmented reality is a rapidly growing subject of computer science and technology study. AR brings technology to life by allowing users to interact with their surroundings in real time. Information and communication technology now supports the growth of human contact with physical, computer, and virtual environments in fields such as science, commerce, banking, and education. This technology is a part of computer science that concerns with the merging of reality and computer-related data. It is common knowledge that our existing educational system falls short in several areas. We still follow the traditional blackboard method of teaching which fails to provide every student with proper guidance. By introducing Augmented reality into the education system, teachers can convey their knowledge more precisely and in a very attractive manner. Some concepts are difficult to understand and even harder to properly depict and present in a textbook. However, augmented reality serves as a new medium where it is much easier to achieve. In this application the topics can be observed in 3D graphical image and video format replacing the traditional 2D view. This system is designed to provide virtual training to the hyperactive person as well to conduct intelligent assessment to the same person. Therefore this deployment can also be done for creating a classroom environment for all the learners, which initiates more interaction to learners via MQTT protocol , and they can see all practical implementation of their subject through a virtual mode, reducing learners' stress in understanding a subject. This system will help the students to view the 2D images in 3D which gives students better visualization and helps it easier to understand various layers, structures which otherwise is difficult to understand based on just a 2D structure.

187. Condition monitoring of single-stage gear pair using vibration analysis

In this study, an involute gear pair is designed and fabricated. A test rig is assembled to carry out the experiment in which the driving gear is subjected to different crack levels and its vibrational signatures are studied using vibrational analysis. Generation of a two-level severity root crack on the gear model for the simulation segment is done using SOLIDWORKS, and cracks of the same dimensions are replicated on the fabricated gear using a Wire-Cut Electrical Discharge Machine. The vibrational properties of the motor are then recorded under different speeds and loads for both crack severities and are compared to that of a flawless gear of the same properties and dimensions. This further allows us to observe the effect of operational parameters on the vibrational properties of the motor that runs the defective gears. This study reveals the relationship between the waveforms of the vibration and cracks severity of the gears along with parameters such as varying speeds and loads.

188. Body-on-a-chip: Microfluidic based futuristic approach for Drug Screening

Preclinical testing using animal models has been crucial in drug development process, but issues of ethical factors and species variances still remain. However, human derived in vitro cell-based assays are being actively practised to study drug’s pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Although, current in vitro cell assays give the drug's potential therapeutic benefits, it is only specific to a tissue but not to an entire body to accurately predict the compound’s efficacy, toxicity and inter-organ interactions. In recent years, ever-growing scientific research and innovative advancements in microfabrication technologies have impacted notably on bioengineering and biomedical engineering. One such approach is ‘Microfluidics’ that has emerged as a powerful tool to provide the opportunity to stimulate different organs. The technology of organ-on-a-chip has made it probable to physically and chemically recapitulate the in-vivo conditions by utilising microfluidic approach. Till now, in vitro models of multi-organs including the gut, liver, kidney, lung, heart, and bone have been developed to mimic the organ physiology. Likewise, an integration of multiple organs on a microfluidic platform known as body-on-a-chip model has also been proposed to replicate organ cross talk. This review provides a overview on cell culturing within microfluidics systems, design, fabrication of biochips, organ and body on a chip models, and its applications in the coming future.

192. A review of decentralized storage and sharing system using blockchain

A Decentralized application that would help in storing any type of files online without using any third-party software. Important documents are good to be stored online so that one can access them from anywhere in the world from any device having an internet connection, but would be helpful only when it is stored on some trusted third-party software. These third parties may peep into the documents and can use them as data for personal use. There is also a chance of restricted service or the downtime of the software. This would turn out to be a nightmare. This system proposed a solution to this problem by using Decentralized applications using Ethereum Blockchain. This Dapp stores any type of files keeping any third party away from the process of storing data. As long as this Dapp is based on Blockchain technology, it is resistant to any kind of attack because of the use of the Ethereum platform having a default hashing algorithm.

198. Reliability improvement in Z-source inverter with redundancy

The proposed work deals with the evaluation and improvement of a Z-source inverter using simulation. A Z-source inverter is a type of power inverter, a circuit that converts direct current to alternating current. It functions as a buck-boost inverter without making use of a DC-DC converter-bridge due to its unique circuit topology. MIL-HDBK-217F (Military handbook) is used to evaluate the reliability of this Z-source inverter. We have proposed a system that has been theoretically proved to have the lowest failure rate leading to reduced system repairing because of the use of redundant switches. The MTBF (mean time between failure) is high for redundant switches which will increase the life of the inverter. Simulation of the proposed system is done on MATLAB and a comparison of the reliability of the Z-source inverter is done with the results found theoretically. In a conventional inverter if one switch of inverter fails the complete leg will fail. Whereas in our case that is in Z-source inverter, because of the intermediate shoot through stage redundant switch will replace the failed switch thus saving it from failure.

199. Study of Molecular Markers in Agroforestry

Agroforestry is the combination of agriculture and forestry on farms and agricultural lands. The primary goal is to create a healthy and harmonious symbiosis with forest trees and agricultural crops using conventional farming techniques. Agroforestry is highly beneficial as it is a sustainable food production method. The main advantage of planting trees in between crops is to prevent water runoff and soil erosion. Plants undergo several unfavorable conditions during their growth cycle. Such conditions include abiotic stresses like drought, temperature, scarcity of nutrients and high levels of salt in the soil. This adversely affects the yield and productivity of crops. Molecular markers play a significant role in identifying stress tolerant genes in many crops. This helps in enhancing crop production, yield and most importantly improving food and nutrition security. Thus, it helps in improving the income of farmers. In this article, we will be studying the use of molecular markers to improve Agroforestry. Molecular markers are the most effective tools for the analysis of gene tags, genetic variability, phylogenetic evaluation and improvement of new and exquisite cultivars. The markers used in tree improvement are RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA), RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism), AFLP (Amplified Fragment length Polymorphism), SSR (Simple Sequence Repeats) or Microsatellites and SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism). There are numerous advantages of using molecular markers in tree improvement as they been placed on the tree population, and it is been screened for a wide range of variety of physiological and quality traits. They play an important role in enhancing genetic gain for quantitative traits. With the help of molecular markers, they can do phenotyping, genotyping and also the construction on the tree populations. The selective markers are used to capture the extent of the genetic variation, as the diversity at the phenotypic level which is larger than the diversity at the marker level. Screening of controlled crosses in Neem tree, markers like M13, AP-PCR are used for germplasm identification; genetic mapping and breeding purposes are few among them. This project focuses on the molecular markers in tree improvement.

200. Food wastage reduction

There is growing evidence that a significant share of global food is thrown away, with concomitant detrimental repercussions for sustainability. Reducing food waste is a key sustainability challenge for the foodservice industry. Despite the significance of this issue to the global foodservice industry, the link between innovation practices and food waste management has received limited attention in the academic literature. This paper uses innovation management and social constructionism to investigate the interrelationships of foodservice provisions and innovations in waste management. It is based on the evaluation of food waste solutions and innovations that combine strategic dimensions of waste management with practice-driven initiatives, including incremental (processes and technologies) and radical innovations. The paper presents a range of waste management initiatives, showing that their implementation in the foodservice sector varies depending on management’s beliefs, knowledge, goals, and actions. The concepts discussed here could help practitioners to become more aware of the factors that drive the adoption of food waste innovations. The prevalence of food waste has been a subject of interest and discussion in recent years and researches is being done to find effective ways to curb it. It has been identified as a primary issue in the sustainability of food production and consumption, in addition to the sustainability of food supply chains. Food waste can be divided into avoidable and unavoidable waste. Avoidable waste includes edible food and spoiled/damaged edible food, while unavoidable waste consists of inedible food like bones, fruit peels, and eggshells among others. Research shows that in Finland, 5% of purchased food is wasted in households, and an average person wasted about 20-30 kg of food in a year. The average total amount of food wasted in households yearly is about 120-160 million kilograms. Household wastage could be intentional or not. Many of the food wastage in households could be a result of forgetfulness or negligence for the food expiry date. In countries like Finland with the high cost of living, consumers are inclined to buy food nearing its expiry date due to the discount shop sellers attach periodically.

207. Design and development of Electromagnetic Braking System

These are totally friction less. Electromagnetic brakes are the brakes working on the electric power & magnetic.An Electromagnetic Braking system uses Magnetic force to engage the brake, but the power required for braking is transmitted manually. Electromagnetic braking system is a modern technology braking system used in light motor & heavy motor vehicles. This system is a combination of electro- mechanical concepts.It also reduces the maintenance of braking system. An advantage of this system is that it can be used on any vehicle with minor modifications to the transmission and electrical systems. An Electromagnetic Braking system uses Magnetic force to engage the brake, but the power required for braking is transmitted manually. The disc is connected to a shaft and the electromagnet is mounted on the frame .When electricity is applied to the coil a magnetic field is developed across the armature because of the current flowing across the coil and causes armature to get attracted towards the coil. As a result, it develops a torque and eventually the vehicle comes to rest. These brakes can be incorporated in heavy vehicles as an auxiliary brake. The electromagnetic brakes can be used in commercial vehicles by controlling the current supplied to produce the magnetic flux.

208. Web Based Network Element Resource and Information Tool

Web based network element resource and information tool (NERIT) which is the new technical way to maintain and keep track the network elements (NE) information It also keeps on updating NE information like software version, allocation period, NE connection details and NE health status. Users can access all the NE information details in a single window interface. NERIT is helpful for network service providers which reduces the network operation costs. While traditionally different solutions were available in the market for manual maintenance of NE details, but it is a tedious process and time consuming. In our proposed system, user can view all the required NE information. Proposed methodology, created an graphical user interface (GUI) for the NERIT with the help of web technologies and tools and it allows user to interact directly with the application. To maintain and monitor the NE’s MySQL database management system is used. To connect the GUI and database management system Nodejs Express framework is used. The data will be stored in the remote server. The Admin or Superuser should be a register user. The admin or superuser can login into their account through the application itself and update the network elements information like NE IPs, credentials, their allocation period, availability, reachability, hardware details, software details, location etc. In NERIT application users have easy access for viewing and searching all the NE information. The application will check user authentications. Users are not permitted to manipulate any data only admin and superuser can manipulate the data. Other than this the advanced features are: Bulk addition of NE’s ,automating the allocation process and software version update .In case of any NE allocation is about to expire means it will send notification to the user for whom NE is allocated, so they can take required actions. The users can download the NE information file which includes all the NE details NERIT also has the feature for user feedback, which will enable to further enhance the functionality of the platform and add many more features to it. Performance of the application can be improved and speed up by using HTTP/2 , optimizing the MySQL query and clustering the NodeJS.

211. Plight of the Subaltern woman in Mahasweta Devi’s “Draupadi”

ABSTRACT Europeans identify them with ‘Eurocentrism’ and observe themselves as dominant and superior, and their colonized land as inferior to them. The colonizers are concerned about the possibility of being contaminated by the interaction with the colonized people and have always been frightened of this interaction, thereby leaving behind their supremacy and power over the colonized, consequently, the colonizers consider the interaction as a menace and disguised their fear. This study examines Mahasweta Devi’s “Draupadi” which reflects the Subaltern concept which is one of the significant concepts of Postcolonialism. It was popularized by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak’s essay titled, “Can the Subaltern Speak?” (1985). The status of women in the society, predominantly marginalized is engrossed with the sense of negligence. These marginalized women are suffering in terms of their gender, class and caste discrimination. These women are not provided any authority with regard to their own self and existing. The marginalized women live on the edge of the domination and anguish. This paper persistently attempts to re-examine the marginalization of the tribal woman with reference to Mahasweta Devi’s “Draupadi”, which is a metanarrative, capturing the life and times of its protagonist Dopdi Majhen, a Santhal tribal, at the intersection of modern developmental state and subsistent subaltern survival. It raises the issues of class, caste and colonialism, and their collusion in the formation of hegemonic patriarchal nation state and how this mainstream formation maintains itself through violent ‘othering’ of the margins. Mahasweta Devi is one of the contemporary woman writers who deal with the forms of oppression in her works. She is considered as one of the boldest of Bengali female writers whose works are associated with the rural tribal community of West Bengal, women and dalits. Feministic aspect is observed in her works through the sympathetic portrayal of women and their consequent revolt. She exemplifies the sufferings of women, miseries and their power of enduring and resistance. She also deals with the women issues like loneliness, separation, women’s fight for survival, exploitative situations like rape, marital violence, death and its loss and female slavery. Critics like Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak view Mahasweta Devi’s works as rich sites of feminist discourse.

212. Combined Sine-Logistic chaotic map and its application in an image encryption scheme

With the rapid growth of technology, Information Security has become a significant concern in the contemporary world. Today, many new-fangled methods have been developed to transmit data in a fast and secure way. Among all the data that is being transmitted, digital images play a vital role. About 60 percent of the data that is being transmitted is in the form of digital images. These digital images require a safe and concealed method of transmission. Researchers have developed many concepts to execute image encryption like chaos theory, data encryption standard (DES), image filtering technology, advanced encryption standard (AES), neural network-based image encryption, DNA coding, fractional Fourier transforms, quantum theory, and compressive sensing. In the late years, additional scholars have focused on executing chaos theory in image encryption schemes due to large key space’s advantages and high-level security. In the project, we have provided a new logic for digital image encryption. This method combines the usage of the logistic map and sine map to create a new chaotic map. By doing this, the randomness, sensitivity and robustness are further increased. The proposed system used row by row and column by column confusion and diffusion mechanisms, which increases the security multi-fold. Unlike conventional methods, this method uses scrambling pixels from their actual rows and columns and applies bit-level manipulation to each pixel. This disrupts the interrelationship between adjacent pixels of the ciphered image. Further, the security and simulation analysis show that 1DSP-1E has a greater level of reliability than the other encryption schemes

221. Logotherapy as a framework of a cure for COVID-19

At times, human existence is resisted by certain external forces and affirms that there exists a meaning in suffering similar to the meaning in life. Suffering is an integral part of life like fate and death, without which life is incomplete. An external force, be it a war or a dreadful pandemic outbreak, may possibly hem in people for an unknown period of time. Such provisional existence in a confined space affects balance in the psychological state of mind. The decline in the belief in the future predominantly lingers in the minds of people. This paper attempts to view the ongoing pandemic period of COVID-19 through the lens of Logotherapy, a theory propounded by Viktor Frankl in his book Man’s Search For Meaning. It also highlights that holding on to the inner self is the only way out of suffering.

224. MRI brain image segmentation using soft computing techniques

A brain tumor is an assortment, or mass, of strange cells in your cerebrum. MRI scan is usually used to help in analyzing brain tumors. Sometimes color might be infused through a vein in your arm during your MRI study. Any development inside a particularly limited space can cause issues. Brain tumors can cause cancerous or noncancerous in our cerebrum. Tumors are treatable whenever distinguished at the beginning phase. Generally, diagnosing or analyzing a brain tumor typically starts with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). When MRI image shows that there is a tumor in the brain, the most widely recognized approach or method to decide the sort of cerebrum tumor is to take a gander at the outcomes from an example of tissue after a biopsy or medical procedure. X-rays make more nitty-gritty pictures than CT examines (see underneath) and are the favored method to analyze a brain tumor. The MRI image may be of the cerebrum, spinal line, contingent upon the kind of brain tumor suspected and the probability that it will spread in the CNS. In this project, our goal is to recognize the cerebrum tumor from the MRI pictures by utilizing Soft Computing. Picture Segmentation is done to remove important highlights and performing examination dependent on the division of pictures utilizing K methods bunching. Picture decrease is accomplished for quick handling of pictures utilizing the FCM method. The proposed framework can be generally utilized for the therapy of brain tumors utilizing clinical picture handling.

225. Alternate-storage hydroelectricity project & risk assessment with bot models in the Indian context- A report

Alternate-storage hydroelectricity is an arrangement to store water in addition to the main reservoir in the nearby catchment area of the dam. This is an arrangement wherein hydroelectric energy stored in the alternate reservoir can be used by an electric generator for load balancing during the peak summer season when the demand is high. The method stores energy in the form of the potential energy of water-induced with gravitational force, stored in an alternative reservoir in the close proximity of the main reservoir. During periods of high electrical demand, the stored water in the alternate reservoir is released into the main reservoir through an intake tunnel and released through turbines to produce electric power. The cost incurred in the construction of an alternative reservoir with a series of water-retaining structures in the form of a weir or dam can be collected by generating revenue from selling more electricity during periods of peak demand when electricity prices are highest and also demand is more throughout the project life cycle.

233. A Practical approach for Firmware Reverse Engineering

Embedded products have become widely used entities in the network of households and enterprises. The exponential increment in its use has resulted in a lapse in security measures taken while building these products, leaving them vulnerable to security attacks. An important feature is that embedded devices work on what is commonly known as Firmware, Firmware, a piece of software that helps the embedded devices to work on the shared task. Securing the firmware will be an important step in securing the embedded product setup. To secure the firmware one needs to understand how the firmware works. One way to do so is to reverse engineering. Through reverse engineering, one can attempt to understand the device architecture, functionality, and potential vulnerabilities present in the device. A better understanding of the firmware implementation also helps in adding features if needed. This project aims to apply several types of reverse engineering techniques to increase the efficiency of reverse-engineering the firmware and find the vulnerabilities in a firmware-based setup. Also, estimate the level of damage the identified vulnerabilities can cause through rigorous penetration testing.

234. Detection and identification of high-quality cereals

Agricultural product grading is helpful in assessing the quality of a product and classifying it into categories. Presently, the grade analysis procedures involve the manual analysis of grains which is highly subjective and is influenced by human factors and the working environment. Thus, determining the quality of grains is a big challenge. In this paper, we have proposed a system that determines the quality of grains using image processing techniques. A variety of approaches were utilized to automate the screening process through machine vision approaches. Initially, the grain samples run on the conveyor belt, and then random images of grains are captured by the camera. The image processing algorithm is applied to the grain samples through MATLAB. Quality analysis of rice grains is determined by morphological features of rice grains. Various standards and procedures are then used to determine grades for the sample under test. The process of grading helps farmers to get the value for their produce, particularly rice, depending upon the results of quality inspections. Deep learning and machine learning models involving image processing has been tried in this paper to observe the computational accuracy

237. Simple Borders Creating National Complexities

National borders are lines that separate one nation’s physical area from another nation. These borders usually help out in distinct identification of the nation’s location and prevent misunderstanding of the ownership of a piece of land or a distinct location. Most of the times, the airspace, land borders and coastlines are exploited by neighbours to create new crisis for capturing national boundaries. The extreme terrains present in the Indo Pakistan and Indo Bangladesh borders are dense sites of illegal activities like smuggling and, illegal drugs, weapons and human trafficking. The borders shared by India with Pakistan and Myanmar are hotspots of terrorism and cross border attacks for land capturing. The Indo Bangladesh borders has areas of high political sensitivity as there are many misunderstandings and problems related to ownership of a particular area. This paper discusses about the Indian border issues and existing solutions to solve these complexities and future solutions to resolve these issues.

242. Literature survey on Hyperspectral Image Compression Techniques

Hyperspectral images are the only type of images where we can verbalize about spectral resolution. The spectral resolution is defined as the interval or disseverment between different wavelengths quantified in a concrete wavelength range. Conspicuously, the more spectral channels acquired in a more diminutive wavelength range, the higher the spectral resolution will be in the scenario. Moreover, when a hyperspectral image is acquired, it is stored in a file where the spectra must be injuctively authorized in a logical manner in order to be able to reconstruct the data cube in any software. To store the file in the board or any device, have to use an algothirm to compress it in proper way to retrieve it again without any loss. In this paper, going to see and discuss about the various algorithms and techniques used to compress the hyperspectral images proposed by experts in this field, which may helpful for the future scholars in this area to see a glance around compression techniques applied on hyperspectral images for better performance of the captured data.

248. Bacteriological analysis of different types of fresh fruit juices from market

Bacteriological analysis of samples of fresh orange and pineapple juices collected from different shops confirmed the presence of bacteria. The isolated bacteria were identified as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus by employing techniques like Microscopy, Culture and Biochemical Reactions. The presence of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli may be interpreted respectively as contamination of fruit juices by the bacteria present on the skin surface of the juice maker or by the bacteria present on the water used for preparing those fresh juices. It has been proved that Staphylococcus aureus can exist as commensals on skin. Similarly E.coli being a common water contaminant can easily contaminate fresh juice. Hence it is advised to take necessary precautions to avoid bacterial contamination of juices during the preparation of fresh juices without preservatives. This can be achieved by proper hand washing techniques before juice preparation and also by using filtered cold water for juice preparation. In order to suggest a suitable therapeutic regimen in case of infections occurred during the consumption of such contaminated juices, antibiotic susceptibility testing of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus was done using antibiotics like Amoxicillin, Chloramphenicol, Tetracycline and Streptomycin. From the results obtained it has been assumed that Amoxicillin was more effective against both Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. The antibacterial effects of Amoxicillin, Chloramphenicol, Tetracycline and Streptomycin against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli showed the biocide effects of these antibiotics against the Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria.

249. Pneumonia: Medical Image Analysis

Pneumonia is an infectious and deadly illness in the respiratory tract that is caused by bacteria, fungi, or a virus that infects the human lung air sacs with the load full of fluid or pus. Chest X-rays are the common method used to diagnose pneumonia and it needs a medical expert to evaluate the result of X-ray. The troublesome method of detecting pneumonia causes a life loss due to improper diagnosis and treatment. With the emerging computer technology, development of an automatic system to detect pneumonia and treat the disease is now possible especially if the patient is in a distant area and medical services are limited. This study intends to incorporate deep learning methods to alleviate the problem. Convolutional Neural Network is optimized to perform the complicated task of detecting diseases like pneumonia to assist medical experts in diagnosis and possible treatment of the disease.The result achieved a 93 percent accuracy rate for CNN with Gamma and the lowest rate is 79.9 %percent achieved by the CNN model. Convolutional neural network (CNNs) has achieved state-of-the-art performance for automatic medical image segmentation. However, they have not demonstrated sufficiently accurate and robust results for clinical use. In addition, they are limited by the lack of image-specific adaptation and the lack of generalizability to previously unseen object classes. Medical datasets are often highly imbalanced with over representation of common medical problems and a paucity of data from rare conditions. We propose simulation of pathology in images to overcome the above limitations.

Fire is a highly useful as well as a dangerous resource that has been utilized by humans since centuries. The only type of fire that is highly useful is the type of fire that is controlled and the energy generated can be used for different purposes. But not all fires are like that and some fires can be extremely devastating. These fires can become large and take down acres and acres of forests leading to extreme death and destruction. There have been recent and highly devastating fires that have rocked major rainforests and decimated a lot of wildlife close to extinction and endangerment. These fires can be stopped if detected when they are in their starting stages and lead to effective reduction in the destruction. There are several techniques such as sensors and other equipment that have been useful in the detection of the fire, but they have not been highly effective and efficient in the deployment. Therefore, an image processing based approach is defined in this research article to achieve effective realization of the fire detection. The proposed approach utilizes Convolutional Neural Networks along with Decision Tree to achieve the effective Fire detection. The experimental results confirm the accurate deployment of the fire detection mechanism.

255. RICA: Real-Time Image Captioning Application

Automatically describing the content of an image is a fundamental problem in artificial intelligence that connects computer vision and natural language processing. Image caption generator is a task that involves computer vision and natural language processing concepts to recognize the context of an image and describe them in a natural language like English. The recent advances in Deep Learning-based Machine Translation and Computer Vision have led to excellent Image Captioning models using advanced techniques like Deep Reinforcement Learning. While these models are very accurate, these often rely on the use of expensive computation hardware making it difficult to apply these models in real-time scenarios, where their actual applications can be realized. In this paper, we carefully follow some of the core concepts of Image Captioning and its common approaches and present our simplistic encoder and decoder-based implementation with significant modifications and optimizations which enable us to run these models on low-end hardware of hand-held devices. We also compare our results evaluated using various metrics with state-of-the-art models and analyze why and where our model trained on the MSCOCO dataset lacks due to the trade-off between computation speed and quality. Using the state-of-the-art TensorFlow framework by Google, we also implement a first-of-its-kind Android application to demonstrate the real-time applicability and optimizations of our approach.

256. Work Efficiency Prediction Analysis and Optimal Path Finding Algorithm

A correct prediction of a contractor’s work can lead to many important things like keeping corruption in check, determining whether that particular is fit for the job or not. Frequently, it is brought that prediction is chaotic rather than random, which means it can be predicted by carefully analysing the history of respective contractor. Machine learning is an efficient way to represent such processes. It predicts a value close to the tangible value, thereby increasing the accuracy. The vital part of machine learning is the dataset used. The dataset should be as concrete as possible because a little change in the data can perpetuate massive changes in the outcome. It consists of variables like name of contactors, previous projects that he worked on, budget of that project, estimated lifespan of the project and actual life of the project. Due to the serious problem of bad road construction and maintenance, the real-time road situation and the possibility of road conditions in the next time period should be taken into accounts through the vehicle navigation system, in order to provide the optimal routing plans for vehicles in routing optimization. To solve the ignoring of real-time travel information and historical travel information in the existing navigation systems during routing optimization, this paper compares the existing navigation system to a prototype system which considers the conditions of the roadways as one of the factor in the recommendation and optimization system of the path finding and navigation process.

257. Improvement of Rigid Pavement with Geogrid Material

We have seen the non uniformity, non consistency, loose soil, unstable soil while construction of roads. We have experimentally examined that geogrid can be added as an additional reinforcement. The benefit of Geogrid is that the geogrid increases the bearing ability of construction and reduces the spreading of gravels and soil. The Geogrid is also economical so the cost of construction can be reduced. Geogrid gives strength to the construction and increases life span of construction. Geogrid reinforcement is a method used in permanent paved roadways in two major application areas. They are: base reinforcement and subgrade stabilization. The strength and life of pavement is greatly affecting the type of sub- grade, sub base and base course materials. But in India most of the flexible pavements are mainly constructed over weak and problematic sub-grade. In base reinforcement, the geogrids are placed at the bottom of unbound layers of a flexible pavement system and improve the load-carrying capacity of the pavement under repeated traffic. In subgrade stabilization applications, the geogrid is used to build construction platform over weak subgrade to carry equipment and facilitate the construction of the pavement system without over deformations of the subgrade.

259. SQL injection and XSS

SQL Injection is a vulnerability that influences the Structured Query Language (SQL) [1] queries that an application passes to a back-end database. By exploiting what is given to the database, the attacker can leverage the syntax and capabilities of SQL itself and the power and flexibility of supporting database functionality and operating system functionality available to the database. Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) is a Code Injection attack executed on the client-side of an internet Application. The foremost common method of stealing cookies or hijacking sessions is to introduce JavaScript with a browser-supported html cryptography technique. [2] Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities ordinarily enable AN aggressor to masquerade as a victim user, to hold out any actions that the user is ready to perform, and to access any of the user’s knowledge. If the victim user has privileged access at intervals the applying, then the aggressor could be able to gain the full management over all the application’s practicality and knowledge. [3] The CWE/SANS Top 25 software errors place SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting at the very top. Additionally, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) lists Injection Flaws (SQL injection) as the most severe security vulnerability affecting Web applications in its Top 10 list. This highlights how common and very relevant in the domain of Web security. As developers, we should be aware of the consequences and prevention measures of these attacks. This report mentions a brief survey on the real-world attacks of SQL Injection and cross-site Scripting. Additionally, the paper highlights some defenses one can use to mitigate these attacks.

263. Seismic Response of Irregular Structures

The main objective of earthquake engineering is to analyze, design and build a structure in such a way that the damage to the structure and its structural component during an earthquake is minimized. A large number of papers have focused to study the effect of irregular structures. Being inspired from the work contributed in the study on effect of earthquake on irregular shaped building this research work presents effect of plan and shape configuration on irregular shaped structures. Building with irregular geometry responds differently against seismic action. Plan geometry is the parameter which decides its performance against different loading conditions. This research work aims to evaluate the behaviour of irregularity (plan and shape) on structure under seismic effect. To workout the performance of structure, equivalent static analysis and response spectrum analysis has been adopted. For achieving this objective by using structural based software ETABS 19. Estimation of response such as: lateral displacement, storey drift, and base shear are carried out. Based on these parameters we have compared response of each model. Results are expressed in form of graphs and bar charts. From research it is observed that to minimize the effect of earthquake simple plan and configuration like regular shape must be adopted at the planning stage.

265. Analysis of the effects of temperature and RC pairs on Li-ion battery models

Electric Vehicles have become the need of time to reduce the pollution from the transportation sector. Not only they reduce pollution but they are also excellent products of renewable energy. Two of the most eminent parts of any electrical vehicle are the Battery and Battery management systems(BMS). Modeling and testing of the systems using simulation is an effective method alternate to hardware testing since it reduces the cost and increases the efficiency of testing. The hardware testing of the battery also affects the safety of the system and any errors may lead to permanent damage to the components and sometimes affecting the people operating them. To model and simulate any component it is necessary to analyze the effects of the parameters which influence it. In this paper, the effect of temperature and the number of RC pairs taken to model the equivalent circuit of the battery is considered as the key factors. The results are used for the analysis of their effects in real-time using the simulation models.

267. Mini CNC Plotter machine using Arduino

CNC Machines are Computerized Numerical Control Machines that are used to draw anything or design any mechanical part according to the design program fed into their controller unit. The controller unit can be either computer or microcontroller. CNC machines have stepper and servo motors to draw the design as per the fed program. After researching on CNC machines, we decided to build my own CNC machine using locally available materials. There are so many CNC machines in the world, some of which are much technical and complex to make or even operate properly. For this reason, I decided to make a simple CNC Plotter Machine based on Arduino which is by far the simplest to make. You can also use this as an Arduino CNC drawing machine with little modifications. This Arduino CNC Machine can draw most of the basic shapes, texts, and even cartoons. Its operation is similar to the way a human hand writes. It’s faster and more accurate compared to the way a human being can write or draw

270. Prediction and Categorization of Heart Arrhythmia

Heart arrhythmia is a state of the heart in which the heartbeat is unbalanced which can be too fast, too slow, or unstable. Electrocardiography (ECG) is used for the recognition of Heart arrhythmia. It registers the electrical activities of the heart of a patient for a period with electrodes attached to the skin. Due to the ECG signals that reflect the physiological conditions of the heart, medical specialists tend to utilize ECG signals to detect and analyze heart arrhythmia. The most important skill of medical doctors is being able to identify the dangerous types of heart arrhythmia from ECG signals. In spite of this, interpretation of the ECG waveforms performed by professional medical doctors manually is proven to be monotonous and time-consuming. As an end result, it was found that the development of automatic systems for identifying abnormal conditions from diurnal recorded ECG data is of primary importance. In addition to that, suitable timely medical treatment measures can be effectively applied when such irregular heart conditions can be identified instantly using health monitoring equipment and tools which internally use machine learning algorithms. Therefore, an important role in this regard would be machine learning.

273. Helicopter Parenting and Psychological Well-being among Indian and United States Adolescents

Parents play an important role in a child’s life. Parents’ style of raising their children can largely determine a child’s overall development. In addition to the various parenting styles such as authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive parenting styles (Baumrind,1966), helicopter parenting has become a common parenting style for raising children. Helicopter parenting is a parenting style that involves parents who are potentially over-involved in their child's lives (Padilla-Walker & Nelson,2012). Parents have high expectations about providing their children the best resources possible to make their life easier and often get over-involved in this process. Parents who adopt this type of parenting style often believe that it can help their children to flourish in life. Psychological well-being describes the important aspects of human functioning ranging from positive relationships to feelings of competence, to having meaning and purpose in life (Diener et al., 2010). This research aims to study the relationship between helicopter parenting and psychological well-being among Indian and United States of America (USA) adolescents. A sample of Indian and US adolescents (n=60) ranging from 16-21 years were chosen for this study. The adolescent’s perception of their parent’s helicopter parenting behaviour was measured using Helicopter Parenting Instrument and the adolescent’s psychological well-being was measured using the Flourishing Scale. The study results indicated no significant relationship between perceived helicopter parenting and psychological well-being among Indian and US adolescents.

297. The design of ultra wide band circular monopole antenna with Quad-Band Notch characteristics

A novel microstrip fed Ultra wide band (UWB) with quad notch characteristics is presented in this paper to avoid the interference of narrow bands. The proposed antenna is having the size of 55x56x1.6 mm ^3 falsified on FR4 epoxy substrate. Based on the methodologies, the first notch is created to attenuate the WiMAX (World Interoperability for Microwave Access) of range 2.94-3.7GHz by using T slot. The two rectangular slots are used to reject the INSAT (Indian National Satellite) band of the range 4.5-4.8GHz and of WLAN (Wireless LAN) band of the range 5.1-5.9GHz. These three notch band characteristics are attained by etching the notches on the radiation patch and the fourth notch is created by etching U shaped slot in the feed which attenuates the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) band of range 7.4-8.7GHz. All the simulations are performed using HFSS software. The simulated antenna yields a good impedance bandwidth of 2-11GHz with Return loss (S11) ≤ -10dB, VSWR< 2 and exhibits good radiation properties except at the notch band ranges. The peak gain of more than 2.2dBi and efficiency of above 90% is obtained from 2-11GHz excluding at the notching narrow bands.The obtained results depicts that the antenna is very well suitable for real time UWB applications.
