India has a wide scope of materials regarding plan, procedures, colors utilized and strategies. Indian material history has been layered and advanced by subtleties of transitory weavers, unfamiliar attacks and strict impacts. The wide scope of plan and weave, explicit to the area of theirorigin,are magnum opuses upgraded by the aptitudes of the specific skilled workers and their custom. Material planning is tied in with making designs for fabric which can be utilized in different applications. Bhatnagar (2002) states that materials have been delivered in India since relic. The creation and advancement of Indian material has an ancient birthplace. Nonetheless, not many of the old plans actually exist. One explanation is that material has for some time been viewed exclusively as an article of utilization, instead of as a work of art and plans are lost through regular mileage. Everyone mourns about the perishing artistic expressions of the nation in which Kurumba painting is one.

Soils contain various metals in style of inorganic compounds or they will stay secure with organic matter, clays or as oxides. The spreading of urban waste and waste sludge in agricultural fields has been a standard apply since decades. The focus was to work out analysis and compare the heavy metals concentration level in 2 elite vegetables (chilies and potatoes) at ten numerous vegetable study areas in Indore in Madhya Pradesh (India). Results of heavy metal determination in elite vegetables and the corresponding soil samples of pot experiments disclosed a transparent dependence on the concentrations of metals more to the pots. Correlation reflects that the uptake trend is close to same because of solutions were more in increasing metal concentrations. Percent uptake of various metals from soil to the plant components additionally show that the pots wherever p.c uptake was higher, were at risk of uptake of that metal and even a smaller increase in level of these metals in soil will cause abundant higher uptake. The physiochemical conditions of soil also are of nice concern for the uptake of heavy metals by the plants

The cloud technology has proven its benefits during the lockdown situation. Small and Medium scale industries are severely impacted during pandemic due to multi fold reasons. This paper depicts the situation of SMEs who were prepared for digital journey using cloud technologies verses underprepared SMEs.  It covers the cloud basics and usefulness of cloud technology for Small and Medium scale industries. It also provides views for selecting right option to maximize the benefits for SMEs. Software as a Service (SaaS) offering has proved more beneficial for SMEs over Landscape as a Service (LaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).  The key benefits of SaaS such as SMEs do not require hardware and software installations at their premises. The Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) extend support for installation and customization for their products. They takes care of maintenance and various upgrades necessary during product life cycle. These distinct advantages of cloud technology became more relevant during Pandemic situation for SMEs.The SMEs being vital part of our economy, the cloud service providers are coming up with various offerings to encourage them for cloud technology adoption. The Pandemic period is also assisted CSPs to improvise their services. The increased cyber-attacks strengthened the security mechanism while the surge in the network usages emphasized the need of optimization code for better user experience. The Covid-19 pandemic has opened up new opportunities for cloud technology in health care sector. The new normal has brought less social contacts and more usages of technology means for daily interaction. Cloud technology has become a part of business continuity planning and brought new perspective during COVID-19 pandemic. The cloud-based workforce collaboration tools and round the clock remote accessibility mitigate the major risks during natural disasters. It is time to adopt cloud technology by those SMEs who have not considered cloud adoption as an option in the first place.

Foreign direct investment plays a key role in developing nations' economic development. Enhancing foreign economic transactions has become more critical than trade. There are a variety of questions for multinational corporations (MNCs) to address if they plan to invest in other countries, such as why do they invest? How are investments made? Where can I spend it? And how big of an opportunity is that? However in the earlier theories of foreign direct investment, certain questions were dealt with. FDI theories were graded according to microeconomic and macroeconomic viewpoints. An attempt has been made in this paper to research key FDI theories and the relationship between the restrictive index of FDI and FDI is studied by the model of bivariate regression. In India, FDI inflows demonstrate a substantial relationship with the FDI restrictive index. It will have to become more liberal to draw more FDI governments.

Sewage Treatment Plants are designed to handle the volume of sewage produced by target areas, however we face issues in streamlining the city’s sewage lines to its destination on the grid. It is advisable to treat sewage at source and localize the STP plants. Indian city planning does not have the means and methods to complete elaborate systems at a stretch, this has caused disparity in development even within cities which has left it with numerous open drains and sewers. Though laid to serve as storm drains, open drains and sewers found across taluks are being used as sewage disposal lines. To overcome the difficulty of maintaining such structures, an automated open drain/sewer solid waste desilting machine is proposed. The machine removes all the solid waste that disrupts the steady flow of sewage. As a result, the natural flow velocity with which the pipelines are laid carries over such waste to the required STP. The machine is attached with ultrasonic sensors that detect the amount of waste present and its range. This data is transferred using an IoT software and the resulting data is a coherent graph.

Robotic Process Automation is a platform used to automate boring and repetitive computer processes using software bots so that humans could involve in tasks which include creativity and decision making which could not be done by robots. Optical Character Recognition takes out printed characters in an image and converts it to text. Google Tesseract OCR and Microsoft OCR were the commonly used OCR engines available in UiPath, a tool for Robotic Process Automation. In Previous, research on comparing those two open source OCR engine, there we made comparison on basic factors which included speed, hardware requirements, accuracy ,but in that case, accuracy was been calculated manually which gave us results but with less precise, as it was a manual process to substitute scraped data to that formulas, In this research we’ve made results with more precision by performing a String comparison algorithm named, “Levenshtein Distance Algorithm” which is deployed in UiPath.

This study concentrates on natural dyeing methods to contribute to the sustainability phenomenon, which is a buzzword in the fashion industry now. Kerala being a state where jack tree is abundantly available any time of the year, this study proposes to revive this cluster by training these women with the sustainable and innovative dyeing technique of jack bark dyeing. The jack tree, a major source of natural dye, has a potential demand in the international market. Today people around the globe are rediscovering color using renewable and non - toxic natural sources. Now-a-days, people are becoming health conscious, and are going organic, herbal, or natural. Although there is an affinity towards organic food, organic textiles, herbal cosmetics/medicines, the knowledge about natural dyes and application of natural dyes is minimal. Bark wood of jack tree is first made into chips, sawdust or even powdered. In order to survive in this competitive world, this all women cluster needs to be innovative and creative in what they produce. To keep the handloom tradition with natural tint in it, this jack tree dye recipe will play the major role.
