Chameleon-Like Relationships: Psychoanalysis Of My Feudal Lord

Shalini Sharma; Dr. Rabindra Kumar Verma

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2022, Volume 9, Issue 8, Pages 137-144

The research paper explores the psychology behind impassive and traumatic relations in Tehmina Durrani’s autobiography My Feudal Lord (1991) in the light of Freud’s Psychoanalysis of conscious and unconscious mind. It also discusses the role of id, ego and super ego to shape the personality of the major characters. My Feudal Lord is a narration of Tehmina Durrani’s distressing and ghastly experiences when she was married to Ghulam Mustafa Khar. The thrust of the paper is to eke out the stark depiction of vacillation in chameleon-like relationships and the psychology behind them. A true  marriage, one of strong social bonds that cherish love and trust in the couple and subsides animal instincts but in a mismatched  marriage these instincts become dominant in support of id that lead the individual as well as society towards declination.

Third molar mineralization has been utilised frequently as a forensic age determination technique. The creation of novel strategies is crucial because this technique is ineffective after the age of 18, particularly when determining whether a person is older than 21. For this, it has been advised that the periodontal ligament be visible.
Materials and Methods
Periodontal ligament visibility was assessed in the lower third molars, using a sample of 53 orthopantomogramme, 32 which belonging to females and 21 belonging to males, from a patient visiting the saveetha dental college and hospitals, Chennai from December 2021 to March 2022 aged 17 to 31 years. A classification of four stages based on the visual phenomenon of disappearance of the periodontal ligament of fully mineralized third molars was used. For each stage, median, variance, minimal and maximal age were assessed.
The relationship between age and stage of periodontal ligament had a statistical significance for both sexes. In this population, stage 3 can be used to state that a male person is over 20 years-old for females, another marker should be used.
This method demonstrates reliability because there is a less significant relationship between the age of the person and the PDL visibility.

Tariq Wali, Sharad Kumar Agarwal

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2022, Volume 9, Issue 3, Pages 182-186

Background: The main purpose of investigating the damaged remains is to develop a
biological profile that identifies individuals by estimating the age, gender, and stature of
the remains. This profile helps to increase the likelihood of identifying the information
of the victim’s events or disasters. Estimating statures through human remains is based
on the principle that there is a linear relationship between statures and various parts of
the human body and bones. Hence; the present study was undertaken for assessing
stature and gender from thumb indices.
Materials &Methods: A total of 50 male and 50 female subjects within the age range of
25 to 40 years were enrolled. The length (in cm) of the thumb- was measured with the
help of Sliding Digital Callipers. The distance from the midpoint of proximal flexor
crease till the tip of the thumb when the subject’s hand was placed supine on a flat
horizontal surface with the fingers stretched and extended is taken as the length of the
thumb. For stature estimation, Stadiometer was used. All the results were recorded in
Microsoft excel sheet and were analysed by SPSS software.
Results: Mean length of left thumb among males and females was 7.23 cm and 6.85 cm
respectively. Mean right of left thumb among males and females was 7.21 cm and 6.88
cm respectively. Mean height among males and females was 164.9 cm and 155.3 cm
respectively. Significant results were obtained while comparing mean thumb lengths
and height among males and females. While assessing the correlation between thumb
length and stature among females and males, significant results were obtained.
Conclusion: Their exists a significant correlation between stature and length of both the
thumbs. So, even if only thumb is available it is possible to estimate the stature of

Dr. Nimisha Beri; Dorji N

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2020, Volume 7, Issue 7, Pages 6433-6438

The study on academic optimism was done with consideration to three dimension; teacher sense of self-efficacy, trust in students and parents, and academic emphasis in relation to different demographical differences such as gender, nature of services and qualification of the teachers of secondary school of Bhutan. The researcher used TAO-S set by Wayne K. Hoy (2010) consisting of 9 items. The sample consists of 308 teachers with equal numbers of male and female teachers working in two district of the country. Researcher used convenient sampling technique to collect the data for this quantitative research. To make the research worthy and relevant the t-test and ANOVA statistical techniques were used. The result shows the insignificant relationship and does support the null hypothesis statements. But in the data generated by the ANOVA and supported post-hoc test, it is found out that their does exist minute differences between B.Ed and PCCE in teacher trust to parents and students which may bring changes to academic optimism. As the overall academic optimism shows strong compliment towards all three demographical dimensions this minute differences is suffice with no differences in all. Thus the growth in academic optimism is at potential and as a result the teachers, students, parents and schools will be equally benefited. Further researcher recommend some of the areas not covered such as salary, types of incentive, age factors and many more that that may contribute a lot for the future study.

This article deals with modern educational technologies and gender equality. Technology-oriented fields are still mostly male dominated. Increasing the number of women in natural science and technology careers remains an elusive goal in EU countries. Although gender equality and nondiscrimination have been critical, longtime concerns in education, gender-related divisions continue to occur in the field of technology and the subjects that pupils decide to study. Also, significant variations between girls’ and boys’ interest and behavior have been documented in technology education. In today’s society, technology education plays an important role in providing children with opportunities and in improving their ability to interact with everyday technologies. Technology education also equips children with the necessary knowledge to perform a wide variety of jobs. In order to introduce a more equitable gender balance in higher education, technology-oriented fields, and, consequently, in the corresponding labor market, we must continue to expand our knowledge on the impact of current technology education and focus on gender-related issues. This chapter aims to discuss gender-related topics in technology education and careers. Could technology education have an impact on women and girls or potentially influence their advancement in technology-oriented fields? With the goal of achieving greater gender equality in technology fields, this chapter concludes with further directions for research and suggestions for new ways of thinking.

Denture Stomatitis( DS) is one of the common denture related complications in patients wearing dentures after years of denture use. There have been various studies on its prevalence despite the fact that its exact etiology is still unknown. Removable dentures have served as an important prosthesis in dentistry, whereby it helps in regaining the phonetics and masticatory functions as well as esthetics in edentulous patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors that can cause denture stomatitis in denture wearers. This study was designed as a retrospective clinical study. All the patients with removable dentures (Complete dentures , Removable Partial dentures , Cast partial denture ) were taken into account and the data was retrieved. The data was analysed and results were recorded.Out of the 1415 subjects wearing dentures (complete or partial ) , 80 were found to have denture stomatitis in which 57.4% were women and 42.6% were men. The majority of the DS patients were in the age group range of 51-80 years. Temporary partial dentures (50%) were the most prevalent type of prosthesis in patients with denture stomatitis. When the medical history was reviewed most of the patients did not have any underlying systemic diseases(61.1%) did not have any medical condition, (18.5%) were diabetic, (11.1 %) were hypertensive. When all the diabetic patients(2577) were evaluated , 9.32% had denture stomatitis .In the study, it was observed that denture stomatitis was prevalent in elderly patients with slight female predilection. Diabetes was the most prevalent systemic illness associated with denture stomatitis

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2020, Volume 7, Issue 1, Pages 3053-3061

Background:Due to the increasing esthetic demands in today's world it becomes necessary to study various treatment options which enhance an overall aesthetics of an individual. One of the most important topics in contemporary dentistry is re-establishing a patient lost dental esthetic appearance. In cases where aesthetics plays an important role such as restoring the anterior teeth, clinicians mostly prefer a conservative yet aesthetic approach instead of restoring the teeth with full coverage crowns. In such situations direct and indirect veneers play an important role. So therefore, it becomes necessary to study direct and indirect veneers.Aim: To evaluate the prevalence of direct and indirect veneers used in smile correction.Materials and Methods:It is designed as a retrospective study. A total of 111 patient records where veneering with direct and indirect technique was planned were acquired. It was done by analysing records of 86000 patient data who were treated from March 2019- March 2020. Descriptive statistics were used to analyse the frequency and percentages of direct and indirect veneers . Chi square test was used to evaluate the association between age and gender with the type of veneering technique. SPSS version 20 software was used to perform statistics.Results: Out of the total cases evaluated, 78. 4 % of the cases were planned for indirect veneering and 21.6% of the cases were planned for direct veneering. There was a significant association between age of the patient and the type veneering technique planned p value 0.001 and no significant association between the type of veneering and gender of the patient p value 0.790Conclusion:Within the limitations of the study, Indirect veneering technique was found to be more convenient and it was performed much more as compared to that of direct veneering technique. There is a positive association between age of the patient and type of veneering technique planned for them.

Tooth wear is a multifactorial condition which can lead to the loss of dental hard tissue which is enamel and dentin. Attrition is mechanical wear of tooth as a result of function or parafunctional habit caused due to tooth to tooth contact. Attrition on the occlusal surfaces of teeth is happening throughout life which results in esthetic disfigurement, occlusal disharmony, pulpal trauma and impaired function. Premilarily diagnosis, treatment and preventive measures of tooth wear is necessity and an important part of day today practice. Hence, the aim of this study is to determine prevalence of tooth wear based on age and gender. A cross-sectional study was conducted among patients with age groups of 27-73 years and reviewing the 86,000 patient records between June 2019 to November 2019. A total of 58 patients were evaluated for category, age and gender of tooth wear. The Collected data were recorded by evaluating the clinical photographs and examination. Data were collected and tabulated in the excel sheets which were Imported to the SPSS version 20 for statistical analysis. Out of 58 patients 53.4% were males and 46.6% were females. The prevalence of tooth wear is more among 61-70 years of age with male predilection. The most prevalent type is category 2 followed by category 1 and category 3.
