A Cross Cultural Patronage Study among the Students in Chennai | Chapter 11 | Current Research in Education and Social Studies Vol. 3

Islamic Banking is any banking activity performed on the basis of Islamic laws of jurisprudence. The two fundamental sources of Islamic law are the Quran, (which is the Holy Book of Muslims) and the Sunnah, (which is the Traditions of the final Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him)). Islamic methods of finance revolve around a few basic concepts, the most important of which is the prohibition of ‘Riba’ or interest. Although this concept is relatively new in the Indian context, the Islamic financial world is now a global force to reckon with and India might miss out if the opportunity is not capitalized. It is worth mentioning that the total value of Islamic business stands at $6.7 trillion and is growing at a rate of 16-20% a year. Also, the fact that many non-Muslim countries like UK have opened full-fledged Islamic banks point to the fact that Islamic finance or Islamic banking is not limited to Muslims alone. Therefore, India’s ambitions of becoming an Asian financial hub cannot be met without capitalizing into the pool of Islamic Finance. The purpose of this paper is to study the level of awareness of students of private universities in Chennai and to study the cross cultural patronage factors towards Islamic Banking. The findings reveal that the respondents have a positive and favorable patronage towards Islamic Banking due to their perception about its success in other parts of the world.

Re-asserting Cultural Perspectives: Old People and New Ideas in Bole Butake’s Lake God and The Survivors and Sankie Maimo’s Succession in Sarkov | Chapter 10 | Perspectives of Arts and Social Studies Vol. 2

African cultures have undergone transformations from the colonial period to the present, often to the detriment of its cultural evolution and within the larger global community. As it were, colonial education subordinated African communalism and created in its place an anti-African spirit evident in the assimilation of western values. This did not only end up in a kind of cultural betrayal, but also posed as a serious threat to the dignity and identity of the people. Those who fall prey to this kind of cultural imperialism are the young people who are often irrationally carried away by western fashion and modes that they tend to neglect and/or forget their cultural ways of life as they join the race of “progress.” This situation has given rise to a conscious effort by creative writers to re-assert and protect African values while at the same time liberating themselves from the longstanding western effort at suppressing, controlling and dominating their thoughts particularly through n
