DESERTED VILLAGES AND DESTROYED DREAMS: AN INDICATION OF CULTURE EXTINCTION
RAJESH BOJAN
The Dawn Journal , 2012,
Abstract: What I propose to pen in the following pages is not about the history of my people, but about their contemporary condition of living that I aspire to explore. I come from the badaga community, a distinctive sect of tribes accommodating most regions of the Niligiri district of Tamilnadu. I have no doubt that those who are familiar with the Niligiri district are well aware of the people in it. Especially, nobody would have left their thoughts of Nilgiris without contemplating about the special race of people that the district is blessed with. It is quite an unfortunate thing that so far a community with such cultural merits has remained unpopular and out of the picture due to lack of script. We have been incapable of expressing ourselves, our culture, customs and rituals in the form of historical records. It is a great disadvantage to live without a language of our own to express. We have indeed lost our finest antiquity and the lifestyle of our forefathers entirely due to lack of education and script. It is at the same time very disappointing to mention the fact that among us not many have attempted to investigate or research our origin. Undeniably, it is true that we have not shown interest into our own community even to the extent it was considered with admiration by scholars from abroad. This paper will attempt to explore the contemporary condition of the badaga people specifically focusing on the impact of dislocation.
Differences in Demographic Characteristics of Potential Acquirers of Real Estate Rights: Cases from Slovenia and Japan  [PDF]
Bojan Grum
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2014.22011
Abstract:

The aim of the study was to explore the role of demographic characteristics of potential acquirers of real estate rights. We were interested in whether the participants according to different origins of cultures and the basic demographic characteristics reflect a statistically significant difference. Results show that the participants who enter the Japanese real estate market are mainly male participants, who are single and have no children, and show a tendency to live in the city centre. Participants of both sexes enter the Slovene property market equally. On average they are married, childless and with a tendency to live at the outskirts of the city or inside agglomeration. Slovene participants expressed significantly higher satisfaction with the current residential status, which we relate to the findings that apartment owners compared to tenants express higher satisfaction with their living environment and are socially more active in their living environment.

A Conceptual Framework for the Forklift-to-Grid (F2G) Implementation  [PDF]
Matjaz Knez, Bojan Rosi
Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2013.46052
Abstract: This paper focuses on presenting the current research findings on the “Vehicle to Grid” concept and proposes theoretical model of F2G integration in energy management of a warehouse. The study is based on an analysis of collected data and on model calculations of the economic value. Analyses of data, calculations of economic value and profitability of the proposed business model give positive results, which fully confirm the thesis that the integration of renewable energy sources and new modern technologies in the logistic processes can improve energy management.
Existence of Black Neutron Star  [PDF]
Trivedi Rajesh
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2015.51002
Abstract: A sufficiently large star will collapse to form a Black Hole Singularity due to Gravitational Pressure beyond Neutron Degeneracy. A Black Hole exhibits extremely strong Gravitational attraction that no particle or electromagnetic radiation can escape from it. The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called Event Horizon. In this work it is proposed that there exists a Neutron star smaller than Event Horizon, which is termed as Black Neutron Star. Furthermore an alternative method is proposed to ascertain the maximum permissible mass limit of the Neutron Star and the minimum mass limit of the naturally occurring gravitationally collapsed Black hole.
ajkanovi 's road from ancient Greek and folk literature to Serbian religion and mythology
Jovanovi? Bojan
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/gei0801037j
Abstract: After a careful examination of the works of ajkanovi , the author points out to the importance of his comparative method in studying Ancient Greek literature, traditional folk creation and folk religion and mythology. Based on traces and parallels from other traditions, ajkanovi tried to reveal the forgotten meanings of the Serbian folk myth and religious practice. With this same approach, he attempted to reconstruct the whole system of an ancient Serbian religion and mythology, and to establish an identity of the Serbian supreme God. However, a critical review of this reconstruction shows its inaccuracy and scientific dismissal.
Managing HIV/HCV - related risk at private places among Belgrade injecting drug users
?iki? Bojan
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/gei0654189z
Abstract: Some of the results acquired by qualitative research conducted among Belgrade injecting drug users are presented: primary aim of the research was to establish relation between HIV/HCV prevalence and socio-cultural aspects of HIV/HCV vulnerability in population issued. Understanding the way of how HIV/HCV-related risk is managed among these people in their day-to-day injecting routines is crucial tool in operating social epidemiological prevention programs. Vital part of this understanding concerns the physical risk environments, i.e., places where injection occurs. The distinctive feature of Belgrade study among the similar ones is that this happens frequently at various private places, which is depicted and discussed.
Injecting drug users' utilization of public space in Belgrade: Places, risk-management, and habitual life
?iki? Bojan
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/gei0701103z
Abstract: Results from the case-study in Belgrade injecting drug users are presented here featuring the discussion on injecting occurring within the versatility of places belong to the public space. The attention is paid mostly to the certain type of physical risk environment which is specific to Belgrade injecting scene, called "shtek", but risk production and risk management are reviewed also taking into consideration other types of physical environments.
Between the general and specific: Political tolerance and general support for democracy in Serbia and Europe
Todosijevi? Bojan
Sociologija , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/soc0803267t
Abstract: Political tolerance is one of the basic values of a democratic society. At the same time, it is also a controversial value - political freedoms are often used to undermine democratic order. In light of the early findings of low level of political tolerance in Eastern Europe (e.g., Bahry, Boaz & Gordon, 1997; Gibson & Duch, 1993), it is important to investigate both its general level and the association with the support for general democratic norms. This paper presents results of a comparative research of political tolerance in Europe, with special focus on the situation in Serbia. The first part of the paper presents descriptive findings abut the support for general democratic norms and the degree of tolerance in approximately 30 European countries. The second part analyzes the relationships between the general acceptance of democratic norms and political tolerance, i.e., the application of the abstract norms to specific groups. The research is based on the World Values Survey data (WVS; http://www.worldvaluessurvey.org). WVS data include the so called 'the least liked group' measure of political tolerance, developed by Sullivan et al. (1979, 1982). The results, once again, indicted the gap between widespread endorsement of abstract democratic norms and readiness to grant the basic political liberties to various specific political groups. Although the level of political tolerance is low across Europe, intolerance is still more widespread in East European countries. Serbian respondents appear similar to those from neighboring countries.
A concept that is everything and nothing: Why not to study (post-)Yugoslav anti-war and pacifist contention from a civil society perspective
Bili? Bojan
Sociologija , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/soc1103297b
Abstract: This paper draws upon a variety of empirical sources to start critically examining the concept of civil society in the context of both (post-)Yugoslav anti-war and pacifist contention and the civic engagement stemming from it in the nationally fragmented post-Yugoslav space. I argue that civil society can no longer be meaningfully used for understanding the complex geometry of social, political and personal interactions, cooperation's and resistances within the regional civic spheres characterized by appreciable power asymmetries. Its definitional volatility and logical incoherence allow civil society to incorporate ideologically and historically extremely divergent phenomena. Due to its conceptual elasticity, civil society is a cognitively easily available device and a depoliticised theoretical paradigm convenient for masking power networks frequently conditioned by foreign political agendas. This paper points to possible alternative perspectives that might prove more productive for analyzing (post-)Yugoslav bottom-up civic engagement.
Bourdieu and social movements theories: Some preliminary remarks on a possible conceptual cross-fertilization in the context of (post-)Yugoslav anti-war and peace activism
Bili? Bojan
Sociologija , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/soc1004377b
Abstract: This paper puts forth and calls for further unpacking of a potentially fruitful conceptual cross-fertilization between various social movements theories and Bourdieu’s sociology of practice. Following some of my most important predecessors, I argue that this theoretical hybridization could accommodate many threads of social movements research that otherwise would not cohere into a rounded theory. Bourdieu’s powerful conceptual armoury is both parsimonious and flexible and seems particularly well-suited to address the problematic issues pertaining to agency and structure in the field of social movements. In the second section of the paper, I call for an exploration of Yugoslav anti-war and pacifist activism immediately before and during the wars of Yugoslav succession. I perceive a number of politically and organizationally heterogeneous initiatives, taking place throughout the demised country, as a case that can be used to empirically test the proposed theoretical considerations. Yugoslav anti-war and pacifist activism has yet to receive the sociological attention that it deserves. It is a complex social phenomenon calling for a sophisticated and systematic examination which should position it between its antecedents - the embryonic forms of extra-institutional engagement during Yugoslav communism - and its divergent posterity, mostly circumscribed within the national fields of non-governmental organizations.
