EAST AND WEST IN R.P. JHABVALA'S HEAT AND DUSTAndreja Grča
, 2013, diplomsko delo
Opis: The aim of this diploma paper is to analyze the dynamic of East and West encounter and the problems that ensue when the cultures of East and West meet in the novel Heat and Dust by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. The author is a westerner, who lived in India for the most part of her adult life and therefore had a unique position of insider – outsider. She is able to observe the dynamic from a detached point of view. She uses orientalist discourse that puts West above East, but because Jhabvala uses irony, she mocks this kind of attitude and this classifies the text as post-colonial. Within this dynamic, I also explored the relationship between men and women, as well as women in India. The relationships in the novel can not prosper because of the cultural differences, supporting the Forsterian idea that East and West can never be friends. Another aim of this diploma is to explore the background of orientalist discourse as explained by Edward Said in his book Orientalism. Said explains the development of orientalism and how the orientalist discourse feeds it.

FORSTER'S NOVEL A PASSAGE TO INDIA, ITS COMPARISON WITH THE MOVIE A PASSAGE TO INDIA, DIRECTED BY DAVID LEAN AND COMPARISON OF LEAN'S MOVIE WITH THE MOVIE THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTELIztok Dremelj
, 2013, diplomsko delo
Opis: India was ruled by the British for almost one hundred years (between 1858 and 1947). E.M Forster visited India several times at the time of British occupation. He observed the relationship between the Indian and the British people in India. His novel A Passage to India was published in 1924.
In my diploma paper I will analyze the relationship between the British and the Indians as they are presented in Forster’s novel. The British did not exploit only Indian natural sources, but also Indian people, who had to work for very low salaries and they had almost no civil rights.
What follows is the comparison between Forster’s novel and the movie based on the novel A Passage to India. This movie was directed by David Lean in the year 1984. I will focus on the differences in content, character descriptions and also the presentation of the relationship between the British and the Indians.
In the last part I will compare Lean’s movie A Passage to India with the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, directed by John Madden in the year 2012. Both movies take place in India, but in different time period, A Passage to India during the British occupation of India and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel after that. I will try to find similarities and also differences between these two movies, especially in the relationship between the British and Indian people in India.

Practicality of base load renewable generation in IndiaKarthik Subramanya Bhat
, Udo Bachhiesl
, objavljeni znanstveni prispevek na konferenci
Opis: India, among several other countries globally, now faces a unique situation where managing the energy transition process without hurting the economic development becomes the highlight of its policies. The Indian power sector is highly carbon intensive, with coal based power providing 70% of the total electricity generated. Renewable energy occupies around 15% of the capacity mix. Energy access along with several other
challenges, pose an obstacle to the needed transition to clean energy. As the seasonal load variations in India are not prominent, cheap coal based power supplies most of the load profile,while gas power plants are used for peak loads. The myth that renewable energy sources cannot meet baseload demand has become widely accepted and wide-spread, given their fluctuating nature. Several studies demonstrate an optimistic transition to 100% renewable sources might just be possible in the coming decades. In a carbon-rich power sector like India, the ‘base load’ mind set is a pretty big and powerful hurdle, as ensuring base load generation becomes a major issue with implications directly affecting the country’s economy. In this study, an effort has been made to discuss whether base load renewable generation in India is feasible, and the challenges involved.

Those operating in the Ponda region/Goa benefit from an historical background and highly preserved biodiversity that may entitle them in the future for a GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems) project which will prevent these scenic landscapes to be destroyed. The spice plantations are a live Natural Sciences and History lesson for everybody and an attraction for the tourists who find here a pleasant environment, rich flora and fauna, rural tourism, ayurvedic medical care and an array of leisure activities in contact with Nature.

, 2010, pregledni znanstveni članek
Opis: Probiotics (greek "for life") have been recognized and explored for over a century, Metchnikoff's pioneering work was converted into commercial reality in the 1950s, and since then many probiotics' benefits have been described. Nowadays they have already found place as a food supplement and as a preventive or curative drug. The term probiotics describes a variety of microorganisms which can colonize the host and have health improving effects on it. Since it is a natural and comparably affordable product even for people with low incomes, it could be introduced into the diet of people living in the Indian rural areas. The biggest obstacles for this are education about their use and technology to prepare them in a convenient form for domestic use. Regular use could improve the quality of live and reduce the dependence on drugs and medical expenses.
