Abstract

The scheme of nationalization of passenger transport services was started as early as in 1932 by the then Nizam government in Hyderabad.The Marathwada State Transport, with headquarters at Aurangabad, came into existence. Passenger transport services were regulated by the District level police authorities, prior to the coming in to force of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1939, by issue of permits. With the passing of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1939, passenger transport was sought to be controlled and regulated by various provisions of the Act. Under The Road Transport Corporation Act 1950, the power to legislate in respect of trade and commerce is given to the Provincial Legislature and the power to legislate for the incorporation of trading corporations is given to the Central legislature.Road transport has emerged as the dominant segment in India’s transportation sector with a share of 5.4 percent in India’s GDP. Public transport bus operation is differentiated from other bus operation by the fact the owner or driver of a bus is employed by or contracted to an organisation whose main public duty or commercial interest is to provide a public transport service for passengers to turn up and use, rather than fulfilling private contracts between the bus operator and user.The oldest Indian state transport undertaking is North Bengal State Transport Corporation founded by the Raj Durbar of Koch Bihar Kingdom regime on 1 April 1945 with three buses and three trucks.

जिस प्रकार सूर्य का प्रकाश पाकर कमल का पुष्प खिल उठता है तथा सूर्य अस्त होने पर कुम्हला जाता है ठीक उसी प्रकार शिक्षा के प्रकाश को पाकर प्रत्येक व्यक्ति कमल पुष्प की भाँति खिल उठता है तथा अशिक्षित रहने पर दरिद्रता शोक एवं कष्ट के अन्धकार में डूबा रहता है। शिक्षा बालक का सर्वांगीण विकास करके उसे तेजस्वी बुद्धिमान, चरित्रवान विद्वान तथा शक्ति सम्पन्न बनाती है उसी प्रकार दूसरी ओर शिक्षा समाज की उन्नति के लिए बालकों को तैयार करती है। शिक्षा के द्वारा समाज भावी पीढ़ी को उच्च आदर्शों, आशाओं आकांक्षाओं, विश्वासों, परम्पराओं और संस्कृति को इस प्रकार हस्तान्तरित करता है नई पीढ़ी समाज का प्रतिनिधित्व कर सके। इस प्रकार व्यक्ति तथा समाज दोनों के ही विकास के लिए शिक्षा परम आवश्यक है।

ABSTRACT: The poet/critic Randall Jarrell often praised Frost's poetry and wrote, "Robert Frost, along with Stevens and Eliot, seems to me the greatest of the American poets of this century. Frost's virtues as a poet and artist are extraordinary. No other living poet has written so well about the actions of ordinary men; his wonderful dramatic monologues or dramatic scenes come out of a knowledge of people that few poets have had, and they are written in a verse that uses, sometimes with absolute mastery, the rhythms of actual speech”. Robert Frost loved nature. His poetry was full of emotional appearances about his personal life and behavior. In addition, his literary verses are uncomplicated and profound. He also wrote plain fictions about common people, usually inhabitants of rustic New England. Robert Frost wrote exceptional prose, applying ordinary and sincere language; his poems enclose concept of symbolism, obscure significances, sounds, rhyme, meter, metaphors and more.
