Date: 23rd – 25th April, 2016
Venue: Institute for Social Development and Research, Gari Hotwar, Hotwar, Ranchi

About the Seminar

Recently the terms “governance” and “good governance” are being increasingly used in development literature. Bad governance is being increasingly regarded as one of the root causes of all evil within our societies. Major donors and international financial institutions are increasingly basing their aid and loans on the condition that reforms that ensure “good governance” are undertaken. The concept of “governance” is not new. It is as old as human civilization.

Simply put “governance” means: the process of decision-making and the process by which decisions are implemented (or not implemented). Governance can be used in several contexts such as corporate governance, international governance, national governance and local governance. Good governance has 8 major characteristics. It is participatory, consensus oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive and follows the rule of law. It assures that corruption is minimized, the views of minorities are taken into account and that the voices of the most vulnerable in society are heard in decision-making. It is also responsive to the present and future needs of society.

KLE Society’s
Re- Accredited at the ‘A’ Level by NAAC
College with Potential for Excellence
Research Center of Rani Channamma University, Belagavi
“The Global Challenge: A Healthy Mind and a Healthy Body”
Under the UGC Schemes of College with potential for Excellence
On: 12th April 2016
You are cordially invited
SEMINAR THEME: A healthy body and a healthy mind go hand in hand. There is no such thing as a mind/body split. One of the kindest things you can do for your mental health is taking care of your physical health. If you feel good physically, the chances are better you will feel good mentally. In today’s fast life, we are mostly stressed and racing against time to finish our to-do list each day. We are so busy that we do not get time to eat properly, do some physical exercise and even sleep adequately. Most of us remain constantly stressed. We are always under pressure to meet deadlines or complete our targets. We want to achieve and accomplish a lot in no time.
But, we are forgetting that in order to achieve all this, we need to remain healthy, physically and mentally. We are searching for mental peace all the time to counter stress in our daily lives but, we do not realize that if we are neglecting our bodies, how we can nourish our mind.
Many athletes believe that competition is 50% physical and 50% mental, but how many actually spend time refining and practicing the mental aspects of sport? How do the mind and body work together to create a whole person and a healthy self? Understanding their differences is important as well: In the mind, body theme you will explore the role the aspects of self play individually and collectively in human growth throughout a lifetime: How does the mind work? How does one maintain a well-exercised mind? How does the body work? How is it connected to other parts of life?
According to an English proverb, “A healthy mind lives in a healthy body.” Even if the body is not healthy the effects of this condition will not be permanent provided the mind is not allowed to get affected. Feelings of depression and weakness grow into a disease only when they prolong and rooted in thoughts and feelings for a long time.

· A sharp mind and a strong body: an holistic Approach
