Manoj Raghuwanshi, Dr. Avinash Desai – August 2017 Page No.: 01-07

Patients carry certain expectations before their visit and the resultant satisfaction or dissatisfaction is the outcome of their actual experience The most important reason to conduct patient satisfaction surveys is that they provide the ability to identify and resolve potential problems before they become serious. There are only few studies done for comparison of patient satisfaction with the services provided in government and private hospitalsin India. We measure patient satisfaction with the services provided in government and private hospitalsin Indore (M.P.) city ,through questionnaire survey .We did conveyance sampling and applyingpaired t –test .ATotal 66 hospitalized patients from government and private ownership had been selected for interview. This comparative study entails us why private hospitals are more suitable for public despite high cost of treatment and what measures are required forpublic hospitals owners to satisfy their patients but many times resources constantans is their answer.

Animal Kingdom in the Fictional Works of Ruskin Bond

Uttiya Sarkar – August 2017 Page No.: 08-10

The world of animals is abundant in the fictions of Ruskin Bond. They are characterized by their behaviour which represent human like behaviour in close relation to the author himself and other characters created by him. Yet visitors visiting the author at his home in Mussourie feels disappointed not to find any bats hanging from his ceiling or any mice under the mattress. This proves that all the animals in the fictions of Bond are basically mere creations of his imaginations framed from his observations of the landscape in the lap of the Himalayas. The present paper proposes to discuss some of the animal characters from Bond’s selections and their characterizations.
