Indian Youth and Electoral Politics: An Emerging Engagement

SAGE Publications India
Free sample

Indian Youth and Electoral Politics studies the significant relationship between Indian youth and electoral politics in the country. The book answers many pertinent questions: Does a young candidate matter to the young voters? Do youth vote more enthusiastically if there are young candidates contesting elections? Contrary to popular notions, there is an increased interest in electoral politics amongst the Indian youth. But when it comes to voting, there is a lower participation.
The book looks at the level of awareness of the youth about political issues and analyzes youth interest and participation in electoral politics. It also points out that a large percentage of Indian youth would be willing to take up politics as their career choice. However there are differences in level of youth interest and electoral participation along gender, locality, and various such social variables.

 Wireless communication is one of the fastest growing fields in the engineering world today. Rapid growth in the domain of wireless communication systems, services and application has drastically changed the way we live, work and communicate. Wireless communication offers a broad and dynamic technological field, which has stimulated incredible excitements and technological advancements over last few decades. The expectations from wireless communication technology are increasing every day. This is placing enormous challenges to wireless system designers. Moreover, this has created an ever increasing demand for conceptually strong and well versed communication engineers who understand the wireless technology and its future possibilities. In recent years, significant progress in wireless communication system design has taken place, which will continue in future. Especially for last two decades, the research contributions in wireless communication system design have resulted in several new concepts and inventions at remarkable speed. 
A text book is indeed required to offer familiarity with such developments and underlying concepts, to be taught in the classroom to future engineers. This is one of the motivations for writing this book. Practically no book can be up to date in this field, due to the fast ongoing research and developments. The new developments are announced almost every day. Teaching directly from the research papers in the classroom cannot build the necessary foundation. Therefore need for a textbook is unavoidable, which is integral to learning, and is an essential source to build the concept. The prime goal of this book is to cooperate in the learning process. This book is based on current research as well as classical text books in the field, and aims to provide in depth understanding on fundamental concepts, which form the basis of wireless communication and build the platform, on which current developments can be understood and future contributions can be made. 

This book is written in self-explanatory manner to facilitate critical thinking and to support self study. Special emphasis has been given in this book to systematically organize and present the wide domain of wireless communication technology. Extra care has been taken to present the contents and the concepts in user friendly way to enable an easy understanding. Therefore the language of this book is made to make one feel, listening to a classroom lecture. This makes learning straight forward. Sometimes, the explanation could seem to be oversimplified, this is in order to support wide spectrum of readers as well as to clarify the hazy picture. 

A book of this kind, which addresses a fast developing technology, the frequent use of acronyms and abbreviations is almost inevitable. A care has been taken to spell the acronyms and abbreviations as frequently as practically suitable in the text. Besides, a list of acronyms and abbreviations has also been provided.
mathyoga9211 is not a book but a life style conveyed through very simple mathematics number patterns.Relaxed... its amazing. pattern seeking is the natural phenomenon of human mind and its as natural as waves in the ocean, musical nodes of an instrument, landscapes which soothes our senses. All its due to existence of some patterns in these phenomenonss which relax our senses. Systematic arrangement allows our senses to be relaxed, cool, and calm. To be harmonious is to be systematic and organized. Our activities are the reflection of our inside. Our activity reflects our patterns of mind. Are they haphazard or systematic? Understanding any phenomenon is simple as well as a complex process depends upon how the processing of information is done. That was done systematically or unsystematically. Its so simple.The gap between our understandings, visualizing and expressing would be minimised with this simple process of patternising the mind by recognising and visualising these very simple patterns in numbers first and ultimately in life activities. All the deprievedness we faced while we perform like not confident, anxiousness, puzzleness, disharmonized mind and body can be minimised. This all is the resultant of that gap created due to our habit of non visualisation of our learning. If we visualise what we have learnt and understood prior to actual performance we will surely get rid of such type of illusions of daily life. This book is simply presenting something very natural to our mind and undoubtedly that is human capacity and power of seeking, observing and visualising patterns in all aspects of their course of life to live happily.
