The present paper attempts to make the English teachers teaching English in Maithili ecology be aware of expressing multi word concepts (complex predicates) of Maithili in English, which has been a common problem for school and campus level students as well. Both types of data sources (primary and secondary) were used, viz. the secondary for identifying the complex predicates and the primary for finding out the difficulties faced by the learners for expressing the Maithili CP concepts in English. The result shows that Maithili is very rich by its complex predicates with different types and all levels (school and campus) students having Maithili as their mother language are found to be expressing the CPs in the same way even in English which happens to be pragmatically unacceptable. The concept of Maithili CPs cannot be expressed in the multi word way but in a single word way. Finally some pedagogical implications are also suggested for handling such problems and carrying out the further researches in the respective field.</p> Binod Kumar Yadav Copyright (c) 2021 RMC, J.S.

This study exclusively highlights how a dialect of Maithili called THETH is losing its ground, and the meaning of some common words is degrading, hence replaced by borrowed terms from the dominant dialect or language of the society. It has attempted to illuminate the fact that upward mobility is reflected in the use of language in everyday life. When the marginalized mass step onto a ladder of success or on the way of upward mobility, they fabricate their personality with different components, of which one is language i.e. dominant language in a general case. This piece of the text aims at exploring the reasons behind opting for the dominant/ influencing language to maintain personality. This is often the case that dominated language betrays the personality of the speakers. So this paper has made a case study at a micro-level along with indirect observation of the related phenomenon. And further, some cases of language use-related events have been analyzed minutely.</p> Dinesh Kumar Yadav Copyright (c) 2021 RMC, J.S.

This study, therefore, focuses on teachers’ perception on effects of ICT tools in science teaching classes. The objectives of the study were to identify the existing situation of the use of ICT tools in science teaching and to find perceptions of teachers towards effects of ICT tools in effective classroom teaching in both public and private schools. 12 science teachers one from each school and 12 secondary schools: six public and six private of Siraha district were selected randomly as population of the study. This study followed quantitative survey research design. The data were collected through questionnaire, observation and group discussion. The data showed that the teachers used various&nbsp; ICT tools but they have to face various challenges due to poor infrastructure, limited accessibility, poor network connection, insufficient technical support and lack of effective training. It was found that private school teachers had higher perspectives than public school teachers due to age factor and competency of ICT knowledge and practice. This project is hopeful to provide proper information and suggestions to those who are responsible for integrating new technologies in science teaching.</p> Rajeswar Prasad Yadav Copyright (c) 2021 RMC, J.S.

This study was designed to determine iodine concentration in different brand of salt collected from different area of Nepal and India. All samples were collected both in Lahan and India near to Lahan city. Concentration of iodine in salt was determined by iodometric titration method. Reagent was K<sub>2</sub>Cr<sub>2</sub>O<sub>7</sub>, standardized Na<sub>2</sub>S<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>, KI, NaHCO<sub>3</sub>, starch, concentrated HCl, H<sub>2</sub>SO<sub>4</sub>. Most of the salts collected show iodine level to be in the acceptable range. Result shows that out of nine brands, only seven shown to has a poor content of iodine. It can be decided from the result that most of the people of our country are now using iodized salt aayonune containing high amount of iodine. Evidence is now available from both controlled trials and successful iodization programs that these disorders can be successfully prevented by correction of iodine deficiency.</p> Ram Prabodh Yadav, Archana Chaurasiya, Barundev Sah, Jay Prakash Mahato, Munni Kumari Chaudhary Copyright (c) 2021 RMC, J.S.
