Dear Reader,  
The world is never perfect and this is applicable to academic institutes also, because quality  
education is a Journey, and not a destination; rather there are only commas but no full stop. The holistic  
development of any institution in the higher education system needs full involvement of the faculty  
ranging from academic to administrative staff. To make the institution vibrant the facilities are expected to  
go beyond the traditional and the limited roles. They are expected to be energetic in academic,  
administrative and theextensionactivities of theinstitution.  
Dr. A.P.J. Kalam avers “we need a new crop of teachers, sensitivity towards the learners is very  
important and the love for the learners leads to the efforts to find solutions. The sensitive teacher has a  
researcherinherandthereshould bemotivationtogroom them”.  
The current scenario has witnessed a rapid expansion in quantity of educational research.  
Thanks to the internet accessibility, scholarly researches are now available at the click of the mighty  
mouse attached to the computer. Consequently there are more research outcomes, brought out in the  
form of research reports, theoretical discourses, graphical presentations, diagrams, etc. These research  
outcomes are disseminated by getting them published in the form of research papers, articles in  
journals, chapters in books, or in a complete book. The rush for a better API score has raised the interest  
of various categories of higher education faculty in getting their manuscripts published. The weightage  
given to publications for recruitment and promotion has led to a surge of publication. There is more of an  
emphasis on research publication in journals with ISSN or a book with an ISBN as these are considered  
to be indicators of quality. Our college is giving an opportunity to teaching faculties from humanities,  
social science & literature to publish their research articles with the help of reviews by a panel of subject  
experts, who are national and international level scholars inducted in the advisory board of Research  
Horizons. As a result, this academic publication has global impact and has been indexed in the database  
of EBSCO, USA.  
We, the Editorial Board members take this opportunity to provide a platform to researchers so  
We express our heartfelt thanks to the Senior Editor, and the Advisory Board (International &  
Indian), the Editorial Review Board and the Managing Editorial Team for their relentless efforts in making  
the journal meet its international standards. We congratulate the contributors of papers/ articles for  
passing throughthetestof Editorial ReviewBoard.  
We are thankful to Shri Chandrasen Merchant for generously supporting us financially, since the  
last fourteen years. Without the moral support and active encouragement of the Managing Committee of  
our college, it would not have been possible for our team to bring out such an intellectually enriching  
publication. We specially thank our Managing Trustee and other members for being a constant source of  
motivationfor us.  
With warm regards  
Yours truly,  
Dr. Harshada Rathod (Principal)
