Issues In Participatory Notes Introduction
The moment one recalls the word, Participatory Notes, it sends shivers across the mind of any ordinary Indian or an ordinary Indian investor. Participatory notes were one of the reasons for the largest fall witnessed ever in Indian stock markets. Participatory notes had been in news for all the wrong reasons, every second or third day, some or the other controversy associated with them props up. The most important regulators in Indian economy, i.e. SEBI and RBI are also seen in picture, day in or day out, issuing notices or warning signs to the parties concerned or related to this instrument. But the analysts associated with stock markets are not much concerned or bothered about this instrument. As some of them, don’t have any relationship with this instrument. Indeed, this instrument is much talked about when we name or see the Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs).
Although FIIs have contributed to the Indian economy, in more ways than one, but still they have not been able to earn the respect for themselves as they should be. RBI and SEBI, every now and then, are bothered about their activities and moves that might affect the economy and the markets adversely. The recently out, Lahiri Committee Report, also lays emphasis on participatory notes, its role and functioning. The question that arises in a person’s mind is that what is a participatory note, how it functions, and why is it famous for its notoriety, etc. We will try to seek the answers of the above said questions and various other aspects of participatory notes in the following discussion. What are participatory notes?
In the magazine, Business World, dated December 15th, 2003, the feature on participatory note stated that, “The past month has seen our stock market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), nervously rattling its…...

Facing Autocratic and Participatory Polarities

...Memo To: Senior Managers, Global Computer Solutions From: Lynette K. Lee, Vice President of Human Resources Date: October 5, 2012 Subject: Polarity Management: Autocratic vs. Participatory Management You’ve heard the term polar opposites it is used to describe objects, situations, or even people that are very different. North and South poles; yin and yang, dark and light are just a few of the hundreds of phrases used to illustrate polar opposites and their distinct differences. The term polar opposites are often used to brand or categorize things we like or good things versus things we don’t like or bad things. Polarities are persistent issues that are inevitable and unsolvable. The issues or conflicts seem very diverse, but operate at the same time. Sometimes a manager will experience a “damned if I do, damned if I don’t feeling, that is when you have a polarity. Polarity management has been around since early 1975 and continues to be a challenge to companies today. Polarities consist of two interdependent opposites that have two or more answers (Johnson, 1998). Polarities are two issues or conflicts on two far reaching ends of the spectrum, which have no reasonable solution. Each spectrum or pole has advantages as well as disadvantages (Noll, 2002). It is very important to recognize instances of polarity in management situations. If one pole is underlined or a solution is developed it leaves the other pole unresolved thus starting a vicious......

Theory of Participatory Development

...Participatory Development The theory of Participatory development represents an evolutionary process from the global, aspatial, top-down strategies that dominated early development initiatives to more locally sensitive methodologies.The idea of  participation is heavily influenced by theories of development and is therefore highly varied and complex due to different theoretical positions.This paper tries to engage with various approaches to the participatory development theory based on the analysis of historical, ideological and practical record.It deals with the scholarly articles written by Sam Hickey, Giles Mohan, Kristian Stokke and Frances Cleaver. The dominance of the top-down approaches to development was largely a result of modernization theory which was dominant in the 1960s.Modernization theory tells that for developing countries to develop they need economic growth along the path already travelled by western countries.This has been heavily criticized and other development theories have highlighted disparities.From the modernization point of view participation meant involvement of the community in the delivery of the welfare programmes with the purpose of increasing the acceptance and efficiency.This conceptualisation of participation and empowerment is based on a harmony model of power.This implies that the empowerment of the powerless could be achieved within the existing social order without any significant negative effects upon the power of...

Notes

...between people in our rapidly advancing generation. In Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s play Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage), we watch as two young people who are in love and newly married, begin to leave each other post its notes when they have no time for communication with one another. The author successfully tells an amazing love story using a unique means of communication. According to Anne Maydan Nicotera, “communication is critical to inter-personal relationships” (Nicotera). The notes vary from topics such as one not wanting to wake the other as they leave early for work, for tasks that need to be completed throughout the day. The audience, through the reading of the post- its notes views the couple’s life as it goes through the early stages of a relationship, to having a child, to a downhill slide of their relationship, the steady reconstruction of a marriage, and eventually it goes on until one of the two passes on. By leaving these post-its notes, the unnamed couple manages to have a basis of communication upon which they both are able to agree upon. They manage to find a convenient and effective way to convey what they need to say to one another through post-its notes, and even though things get rough, and arguments ensue, they find their strength and return to one another. Their relationship is refound with a clean slate, and although there are occasional spats in the notes, the audience can see that their relationship is much easier once they settled their......

...next semester; I think you didn’t know how to sing when the note is really high. And the teacher will help you about this, and your chin always up when you sing but you never realized that.” So at the very beginning of this semester I changed a class to this class, and want to improve my singing skill. And just like my mother said that I can’t put my chin down when I was singing. And professor also pointed out this problem. And my facial expression was not very rich when I was singing, that seems like that I didn’t put myself in to that song. Just like a mission to complete. I worked on the chin problem and also the sight singing. Fortunately, the experience of playing the piano made me identify the tone accurate. And I don’t have to spend much time on working this. Therefore, I work hard on controlling my chin, and I still can’t adapt it at the very beginning. But through my hard working I can really handle it now. And as for sight singing, during this semester, I often singing before a mirror and practice my facial expression. And it was working. Now I think my facial expression is much better than before. And there is another point, when there was a really high note that I can’t reach it by my voice before. However, during this semester, I learned how to use my throat to reach that high note. Although I can’t describe how to do this in English, I really felt that was really changed. I can reach some really high note now. Time passed really fast, and this semester will......

Participatory Management

...Participative management Participatory management means that staff, not only the designated managers, have input and influence over the decisions that affect the organization. Not all staff members have the same voting authority as the managers, but they get some limited amount of power based on the situation. In participative management, the designated managers (or manager) still have (or has) the final responsibility for making decisions and answering for them, but members of the staff who are affected by those decisions are actively sought to provide observations, analysis, suggestions and recommendations in the executive decision making process. These guidelines can be used on a higher level when you are setting up a new organization, can be made as a major conscious decision for an ongoing organization, or can be slowly added piece by piece in an organization that is more monopolistic about decision making where decisions are made only at the top. Benefits of Participation An organization will run better if your staff are more loyal, feel needed and wanted, feel that they are respected, and feel that their opinions count. If you pro-actively seek their input into management decision making, you will contribute to all those things. Decisions tend to be better when they can call on a wider range of knowledge, information and experience. No matter how wise and experienced a boss may be, he does not have as much experience as the total of all her/his......

...Notes : In the poem, as well as the movie, the two major female characters are Wealthow and Grendel's mother. Unlike the movie, neither of these characters have large roles in the poem. Both play their part but are described very little. Wealthow is often only called the "gold-ringed queen" and only exists to play "a noble woman who knew what was right" (Raffel, 31). Despite her noble status, Wealthow holds her tongue and is only mentioned when she serves Beowulf and his soldiers mead from a jeweled cup. Grendel's mother, on the other hand, plays a slightly bigger role, but only as an evil idenity. Her name is never revealed and she is only known as Grendel's mother, signifying that the male defines the female. Additionally, Grendel's mother is the only female character that poses a threat to Beowulf and his men. Unfortunately, she is portrayed as a "mighty water witch", insinuating that any woman who defied an man was evil and wicked (Raffel, 41). These two female characters demonstrate the Anglo-Saxon ideas that women should be figures rather than hold any real power. Notes how women have become stronger forces in the world, yet are still held back by men. In the movie, Grendel's mother is shown to be little more than a sex object in the eyes of men, which actual allows her to hold power over them. She is able to seduce Hrothgar and Beowulf, creating sons for her evil to live on through. These monsters eventually attack the men as the repercussions of the "sins of the......

Key terms: Logic Error: A mistake that does not prevent the programming from running, but it causes incorrect results. Debugging: finding and correcting the code that caused the error. Program Development Cycle: the process of creating, debugging, and possibly changing the original program. The steps are as follows: Design the program write the code correct syntax errors test the executable code Debug the code Repeat necessary Customer: The person, group or organization that is asking you to write a program Software Requirement: A single function that the program must perform in order to satisfy the customer Algorithm: A set of well-defined logical steps that must be taken to perform a task.

Participatory Video

...COMMUNITY TELEVISION/ PARTICIPATORY VIDEO What is participatory video? Participatory Video is a set of techniques to involve a group or community in shaping and creating their own film. The idea behind this is that making a video is easy and accessible, and is a great way of bringing people together to explore issues, voice concerns or simply to be creative and tell stories. This process can be very empowering, enabling a group or community to take action to solve their own problems and also to communicate their needs and ideas to decision-makers and/or other groups and communities. As such, PV can be a highly effective tool to engage and mobilize marginalized people and to help them implement their own forms of sustainable development based on local needs. How does Participatory Video work? * Participants (men, women and youth) rapidly learn how to use video equipment through games and exercises. * Facilitators help groups to identify and analyse important issues in their community by adapting a range of Participatory Rural Apraisal (PRA)-type tools with participatory video techniques (for example, social mapping, action search, prioritising, etc. * Short videos and messages are directed and filmed by the participants. * Footage is shown to the wider community at daily screenings. · * A dynamic process of community-led learning, sharing and exchange is set in motion. * Completed films can be used to promote awareness and exchange between...

A Participatory Approach to Curriculum

...A Participatory Approach to Curriculum Development by L. Van Crowder Agricultural Education Officer Extension, Education and Communication Service (SDRE) FAO Research, Extension and Training Division See also "Participatory curriculum development in practice: An experience at the Eastern Caribbean Institute for Agriculture and Forestry in Trinidad and Tobago". Introduction Participants at the 1991 FAO Expert Consultation on agricultural education observed that major new developments in world agriculture, advances in science and technology and changes in population and society require the "integration of academic learning and development tasks". It was recommended that institutional approaches to decision making incorporate "a more participatory approach to the planning process" and that "feedback from the users...in curriculum review and revision offers an effective way of keeping research and teaching relevant and interesting". It seems clear that agricultural education institutions need to foster their relationship to the development process through the integration of academic scholarship with development tasks, including national but especially local development tasks. The implication is that a wide range of stakeholders in local development should participate in the curriculum development process -- that curriculum development can be an important mechanism for integrating teaching and learning with local (and national) development needs and concerns.......
