Abstract

Women suffer a high prevalence rate of several mental disorders. The Indian data shows that 23.4% of women meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder, 8.6% for depression, and 11.6% for a mood disorder.

Abstract

In the present era most of the teachers and educational institutions are facing problems about maintaining the status of teaching and qualitative improvement in teaching-learning process. These problems are occurring due to changing needs and expectations of the society. Rapid changes and innovations in the information and communication technology are also imposing this type of problems because most of the pupils get the curricular related information early before classroom teaching in satisfactory manner and then they (students) rate their teachers indirectly. Teachers and educational institutions do not come to know what are happening in students' mind and what perceptions students have about teachers' performance. In this way we can say that the students are tending to evaluate their teachers work in informal ways. If we think about administration related perspectives, main interest of every administration is on whether the teaching- learning process was fruitfully completed or not and for this purpose every administration wants to evaluate their teachers. In both of the cases i.e. at students' point of view and administration point of view teachers are expected to do their job according to the needs of best possible learning outcomes. That's why evaluation of teachers is in practice (formally or informally). This survey provides a platform for researchers to find out the gapes and scope for future studies.

Abstract

Brand loyalty is undoubtedly one of the most sought after topic for marketers all around the world. In an era where the market is flooded with similar products from different brands having more or less similar functionalities, consumers are often spoilt for choices. In fact, in order to achieve a competitive advantage, marketers must harp mostly on consumer psychology so as to attract them and retain them for lifetime. Brand loyalty can be defined as the extent of consumer faithfulness towards a specific brand and this faithfulness is expressed through repeat purchases and other positive behaviors such as word of mouth advocacy, irrespective of the marketing pressures generated by the other competing brands (Kotler & Keller, 2006; Kotler, et al., 2008). Consumer brand loyalty and relationship model was first propounded by S Fournier (1998) wherein the relationship with brands was compared to human relations. This led to the development of the immensely popular BRQ scale (Fournier 1998). Since then, consumer brand relationships have been studied extensively with several new dimensions being added to the brand consumer relations. However, many conundrums do exist. This study aims to establish a model or construct that re-interprets the consumer brand relationship. A questionnaire has been developed on the basis of Brand Attributes (Based on 7Ps of marketing), Brand Differentiation, Brand Relevance, Brand Esteem, Brand Knowledge, Brand Experience, Brand Association, Brand Trust and Brand Salience. As the aim of the research is to subsequently investigate the impact of the aforementioned variables on Brand Loyalty, Loyalty has been kept as the outcome variable in the questionnaire. This questionnaire had been distributed among customers and the data was collected. The analysis had been done so as to examine the most significant factors affecting brand loyalty has been extracted and the efficiency of these factors either in isolation or in combination has been evaluated.
