    ABSTRACT: The paper sets out to examine and critically evaluate Samuel P. Huntington’s critique of Islam, the major monotheistic religion, in his seminal The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order. In other words, the paper tries to address the issue of rhetoric Islamphobia which is used with increasing frequency in both electronic and print media, political as well as in the academic circles since 1980s. Huntington’s claim that there is a “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West and that Islamic civilization is, by its very nature, hostile to Western values. Huntington focused more to the “religious and cultural” values; to him, Islam challenges the “perfect” and “progressive” Judeo-Christian heritage on which the West is founded. Following Talal Asad and others along with some keen observations of everyday life especially “Shah Rukh Khan” affair with the West has been the starting point in this discursive analysis. Key Words: Civilization; Discourse; Islam; Islamphobia

    ABSTRACT: The year 2012 saw hundreds of political prisoners released. The military-backed Union Solidarity Development Party (USDP) and the National League for Democracy (NLD) reconciled and contested the by-elections. The Western nations eased sanctions, and investments flowed into the country. Barack H. Obama became the first US-sitting president to have visited the country. The process of democratic reforms was, however, marred by sectarian violence in Rakhine state and continued armed conflict in Kachin state. This article analyzes the different facets of politics.

    ABSTRACT: Child undernutrition has been a grave problem in Odisha. This paper focuses on analysis of trends, spatial and socioeconomic patterns of child undernutrition in Odisha. Analysis of data from District Level Household Survey on Reproductive and Child Health (DLHS-RCH) and National Family Health Survey (NFHS) reveals that there are wide differentials in the levels of child undernutrition across space and socioeconomic groups with high average figure in the state. Correlation analysis indicate that female literacy rate, female work participation rate, non-agricultural workforce, and housing condition are strongly associated with the district level variations in child underweight rate. Multivariate analyses using the individual level data from the last two rounds of NFHS (NFHS-2, 1998-99 and NFHS-3, 2005-06) suggest that differentials by economic condition, maternal education and social groups have not only persisted but widened over time. Moreover, It is observed that economic condition has profound effect on child undernutrition; the statistical association is robust. This has happened when per capita income increased substantially in the state and the country.
