Going against the status quo to take a progressive move towards academic excellence is always a difficult endeavour. Such efforts yield enthusiastic support from those in favour of change. ‘Scotopia’ is trying to contribute to reach the goal of bringing change, not only in world of ideas, but also in field of practice. ‘Scotopia’ is in true sense a multidisciplinary journal which carries high quality articles on all aspects of life and focuses different dimensions of science, society and polity, mostly in a national and international context. It places particular emphasis upon articles which seek to contribute to debates on the future direction of social policy, to present new empirical data, to advance theories and modern perceptions of traditional values or to analyse issues which may influence the making and implementation of social policies. ‘Scotopia’ is a principal outlet for scholarly articles on Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural and Pure Sciences published by the scholars of different disciplines and departments providing a unique forum for theoretical debates and empirical analyses that move away from narrow disciplinary focus. It is committed to comparative research and articles that speak to cases beyond the traditional concerns of area and single-country studies. ‘Scotopia’ is an open access journal that invites authors to submit interdisciplinary and/or transdisciplinary papers.
‘Scotopia’ aims to accelerate the pace of scientific communication across the entire community of researchers. The Journal publishes original notes, Research papers and case studies. We are especially interested in publishing original research works and book reviews that keep the profession informed about on-going research programs and noteworthy publications. It serves as a forum for practical approaches to improving quality in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary issues pertaining to various branches of studies. The journal is an online and bilingual resource bank and it is open to authors around the world regardless of the nationality. Contributions of the scholars from different parts of the world will make it a successful academic enterprise.

View/Hide Abstract
It is well established everywhere in the world that poverty is a gendered concept and that inequalities between men and women can both create and perpetuate poverty. This paper focuses on the gender dimensions of poverty with analysis of urban area specific variations. What are the implications of poverty on women’s lives? Is the impact of poverty on women distinct? In what ways are poor women more vulnerable? So far, the focus has been on urban poverty. Is urban poverty a spill over of rural poor through migration? What are the characteristic features of urban poverty and how do they differ from rural poverty, especially in terms of the implications for women’s lives. Does the association of female headed households with poverty hold true in the Indian context? How different are the characteristics of female heads in urban areas and what are its implications on poverty among such households? This is examined through an analysis of female headed households over time across urban areas in terms of their marital status, educational levels and employment status. Gender based deprivations and discriminations are additions to poverty related vulnerabilities. The combined impact of gender and poverty are examined through a detailed account of urban poor women’s demographic, educational and employment statuses.

View/Hide Abstract
At present scenario it is well known debate in the discourse of philosophy that the differences are being observed about the concept of mind, body and self in respect of Indian and western Philosophy. As a matter of fact Cartesian dualism is being established on the basis of the view that the body is something which has extension as a property whereas thought being the property of mind. Naiyaikas propose that the body is the locus of action, senses, pleasure and self becomes related with it. That is why it is our prime concern to look into how the difference is distinguished from each other.
