About the College and Department

Seth Narsingdas Mor Arts, Commerce and Smt. G. D. Saraf Science College, Tumsar was established with the inspiration of Shikshan Maharshi Late. Manoharbhai Patel and by the Gondia Education Society in June 1965. The institution has been continuously fulfilling the need of Higher Education of the poor and backward communities of the region and every year about 1500 students from the surrounding areas flock for admission to college for higher education. The college is one of the well known and reputed institutions of Bhandara District.

The department of sociology was started in the College in 1995 and ever since its beginning, it has made a remarkable progress and had already organized a two days state level sociology conference and the proposals for organizing another one day national conference have been sent to the UGC for approval. The same will be organized in the ensuing session.

There has been a radical change in the higher education scenario during the recent past. While granting the Sixth pay commission, the UGC has expected high returns from the teaching community of higher education, particularly in the field of research. In this connection, UGC has initiated several research projects. Not only this, but the commission has also started granting funds in favor of institutions and also the individual faculty. It has also started a procedure to allot marks under various heads to be added in the API scoring of the respective teacher which is taken into consideration at the time of promotion to higher grade / scale. Continuous research in departments would also add up to the scores of the institution. The efforts made by the Department of the Sociology in this direction to start a National level Research Journal are slowly getting materialized.

Today, large scale change can be witnessed in every field. However, every change is not directed towards development. Several changes that have been brought in have posed problems great in the context of the Indian society. These problems have also brought in negative results on different units of the society. Now, it is time to make a critical study of nature and scope of these innumerable problems and come out with sound and everlasting solutions. It is the duty of the social scientists to take a comprehensive understanding of these problems, make a scientific study of the same and suggest necessary corrections. We have shouldered the responsibility of taking the research and its effects to the society through this biannual National Research Journal. We hope that our intelligent teaching communities extend their fullest cooperation in this matter. Faculty members of any department of humanities can contribute their articles to this Journal. We also hope that the faculty members would make the best of this opportunity by registering their membership and contributing articles to this Journal.
