EXILE AND CULTURAL ALIENATION IN ANITA DESAI’S BYE- BYE BLACKBIRD - AN ANALYSIS
V. Brinda Shree
The Dawn Journal , 2013,
Abstract: The essay as an article seeks to explore the complexities and the dilemma of the immigrants in Exile literature by focusing upon its attraction, repulsion and their exploitation by the vested interests. The study shows how Indian diasporic literature novelists like Anita Desai has chartered this very crisis tormenting the sensitive soul of immigrants. The essay also attempts to highlight, through an authentic study of the novel Bye-Bye Blackbird, how Desai has delineated the problems and plights of exile and the diasporic individuals caught in the crisis of a changing society. Through Desai’s innovative approach compelling drama and masterful style the essay tries to capture the confusions and conflicts of the exiles and shows how her novel Bye-Bye Blackbird simultaneously pictures a holistic view of the Exile literature and the Indian Diasporic literature. The purpose of this paper is to serve as an introduction and inducement to the study of Exile literature. This paper proposes to present a broad outline to Anita Desai’s novel Bye- Bye Blackbird.
A report on the antioxidant activity of the powder of the entire plant of Phyllanthus reticulatus Poir
Maruthappan V,Shree K
International Journal of Green Pharmacy , 2010,
Abstract: In the present study, we determined the antioxidant activity of the entire plant of Phyllanthus reticulatus by performing different in vitro antioxidant assays, including 2,2-Diphenyl-1-Picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging, β-carotene bleaching, superoxide anion radical scavenging, reducing power and metal chelating assay at different concentrations (100, 200 and 400 μg/ml). The entire plant powder of P. reticulatus shows good antioxidant activity of about 90.0% when compared with standard Butylated Hydroxy Toluene (BHT) (85%) at a concentration of 400 μg/ml. Results obtained reveal that methanolic extracts of entire plant of P. reticulatus possess higher antioxidant activity when compared with ethanolic extracts. Thus, this study suggests that P. reticulatus plant can be used as a potent source of natural antioxidants.
Effects of Phyllanthus reticulatus on lipid profile and oxidative stress in hypercholesterolemic albino rats
Maruthappan V,Shree K
Indian Journal of Pharmacology , 2010,
Abstract: Objective: This study was designed to investigate the effect of Phyllanthus reticulatus on lipid profile and oxidative stress in hypercholesterolemic albino rats. Materials and Methods: Hypercholesterolemia was induced in albino rats by administration of atherogenic diet for 2 weeks. Experimental rats were divided into different groups: normal, hypercholesterolemic control and P. reticulatus treated (250 and 500 mg/kg body weight doses for 45 days). After the treatment period of 45 th day triglyceride, VLDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol (TC), LDL-cholesterol and oxidative stress (protein carbonyl) were assayed and compared with hypercholesterolemic control. Results: The aqueous extract of P. reticulatus (250 mg and 500 mg/kg) produced significant reduction (P < 0.05) in triglyceride, VLDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol (TC), LDL-cholesterol and oxidative stress (protein carbonyl) while increased HDL-cholesterol in atherogenic diet-induced hypercholesterolemic rats at the end of the treatment period (45 days). However, the reduction in the above parameters was comparable with hypercholesterolemic control. Thus, aqueous extract of P. reticulatus is effective in controlling TC, lipid profile and oxidative stress in hypercholesterolemic animals. Conclusion: The results suggest the aqueous extract of P. reticulatus can be utilized for prevention of atherosclerosis in hypercholesterolemic patients.
HYPOLIPIDEMIC ACTIVITY OF HARITAKI (TERMINALIA CHEBULA) IN ATHEROGENIC DIET INDUCED HYPERLIPIDEMIC RATS
V. Maruthappan,K. Sakthi Shree
Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research , 2010,
Abstract: Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) family Combretaceae is an important plant used traditionally for medicinal purposes. It is component of the classic Ayurvedic combination called “Triphala”. Hyperlipidemia was induced by treated orally with atherogenic diet. In atherogenic diet induced hyperlipidemic model, the rats receiving treatment with Haritaki showed significant reduction in total cholesterol, triglycerides, total protein and elevation of high density lipoprotein cholesterol. Haritaki was found to possess significant hypolipidemic activity. The results also suggest that Haritaki at 1.05 and 2.10 mg/kg b.wt. concentrations are an excellent lipid-lowering agent.
Random Network Behaviour of Protein Structures

Quantitative Biology , 2009, DOI: 10.1039/b903019k
Abstract: Geometric and structural constraints greatly restrict the selection of folds adapted by protein backbones, and yet, folded proteins show an astounding diversity in functionality. For structure to have any bearing on function, it is thus imperative that, apart from the protein backbone, other tunable degrees of freedom be accountable. Here, we focus on side-chain interactions, which non-covalently link amino acids in folded proteins to form a network structure. At a coarse-grained level, we show that the network conforms remarkably well to realizations of random graphs and displays associated percolation behavior. Thus, within the rigid framework of the protein backbone that restricts the structure space, the side-chain interactions exhibit an element of randomness, which account for the functional flexibility and diversity shown by proteins. However, at a finer level, the network exhibits deviations from these random graphs which, as we demonstrate for a few specific examples, reflect the intrinsic uniqueness in the structure and stability, and perhaps specificity in the functioning of biological proteins.
Direct Behavioral Evidence for Retronasal Olfaction in Rats
Shree Hari Gautam, Justus V. Verhagen
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0044781
Abstract: The neuroscience of flavor perception is becoming increasingly important to understand abnormal feeding behaviors and associated chronic diseases such as obesity. Yet, flavor research has mainly depended on human subjects due to the lack of an animal model. A crucial step towards establishing an animal model of flavor research is to determine whether the animal uses the retronasal mode of olfaction, an essential element of flavor perception. We designed a go- no go behavioral task to test the rat's ability to detect and discriminate retronasal odorants. In this paradigm, tasteless aqueous solutions of odorants were licked by water-restricted head-fixed rats from a lick spout. Orthonasal contamination was avoided by employing a combination of a vacuum around the lick-spout and blowing clean air toward the nose. Flow models support the effectiveness of both approaches. The licked odorants were successfully discriminated by rats. Moreover, the tasteless odorant amyl acetate was reliably discriminated against pure distilled water in a concentration-dependent manner. The results from this retronasal odor discrimination task suggest that rats are capable of smelling retronasally. This direct behavioral evidence establishes the rat as a useful animal model for flavor research.
1-(2,4-Dichlorophenyl)-3-[4-(dimethylamino)phenyl]prop-2-enone

Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2009, DOI: 10.1107/s1600536809015177
Abstract: In the title compound, C17H15Cl2NO, the dimethylaminophenyl group is close to coplanar with the central propenone group [dihedral angle = 13.1 (1)° between the mean planes], while the dichlorophenyl group is twisted from the plane [dihedral angle = 64.0 (1)°]. In the crystal, C—H...O and weak C—H...π interactions are formed between molecules.

Technology for Eye Care: Training in the Care of Equipment and Instruments
S Shree Vidhya BE,V Srinivasan MA MS (USA)
Community Eye Health Journal , 2002,
Abstract: Modern health care, eye care especially, is very much dependent on the use of technical equipment and instruments. These are expensive, more so in developing countries. Much of the quality equipment and instruments are made in developed countries and, even with normal and careful use, are subject to wear and tear. It is important to take good care of them and employ preventive maintenance to keep them working at all times. The 'down time', if any, during which an instrument or equipment is not working should be reduced to a minimum.We seek to answer the following questions by sharing our experience at Aravind Eye Care System in Madurai, India. * How can these objectives be achieved? * Which methods will achieve these standards? * Who can carry out these tasks?
