Personality is best understood in terms of internal and external influences. At every moment our genes, our experiences, environment and our free will determine our personality. In the western perspective, the various personality theories fall into five major perspectives the Psychoanalytic perspective which defines personality in terms of the dynamics that underlie behavior, the Trait perspective which defines personality in terms of behaviors, the Humanistic perspective which pays attention to the growth potential of people, the social cognitive perspective which emphasizes the ways in which our personalities are influenced by our environment and the Evolutionary perspective which asserts that the patterns of behavior seen in a species is a product of evolution. In the Indian perspective, the essence of human personality is the self, which in conjunction with the gross physical and subtle bodies becomes subject to experience pleasure and pain. Self-realization is the goal of human life according to Indian psychology.

Urge for reinstatement of the human values, for peace and harmony, protest for the Dharma (Religion/Duty), devotion to the Karma (Deed) and quest for the Moksha (Emancipation) are the needs, felt not only in 21st century, but in all Ages, whenever the erosion of human values, hegemony of chaos, escapism from one’s own duty and spiritual degradation are felt. And because of their universality Indian scriptures, like the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita have timely proved to be the only sources for the keys to all problems of the life and inspired many Eastern and Western scholars to rethink, re-contextualize and reinterpret the meaning of life in/after Life. Henry David Thoreau, an American writer, philosopher and transcendentalist, is one of them whose works are highly influenced by the ideology depicted in these Indian scriptures, especially the Bhagavad Gita. The present paper is an attempt to investigate how Thoreau’s life, perception and his works were influenced by them, especially by the Bhagavad Gita, under the title Glimpse of Ideology of the Bhagavad Gita in Henry David Thoreau’s Works

Domestic Violence against Women and Alcoholism are two dominant social issues particularly in rural and backward classes of India. Researchers have found coexistence of these two issues in rural society and number of studies have been carried out to find linkages between domestic violence against women and alcoholism of batterer.Both these issues are closely associated in the public mind. Many people believe that alcohol abuse is a primary reason for women’s battering. Others think that alcohol abuse may increase the risk for intimate partner violence, but is not a direct cause of intimate partner violence. Still others believe alcohol abuse and intimate partner violence are separate issues, which only appear to be correlated due to other factors.
