A plea was filed in the Supreme Court by the social worker<sup><a href="#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1"><strong>[1]</strong></a></sup> who had alleged that around 187 people have been enforced to bonded labour in brick kilns. They are forced to do hard bodily labour in insensitive conditions.<sup><a href="#_ftn2" name="_ftnref2"><strong>[2]</strong></a> </sup>On 24<sup>th</sup> March India declared a nationwide lockdown. It was an unexpected declaration there was no preparation for those whose livelihood had been threatened. Almost 90% of the workforce employed in the informal/unorganised had been affected badly. This study explored how the pandemic impacted the informal sector, especially bonded labourers. Data and cases are collected through the internet, books and newspapers. During a pandemic, the helplessness of bonded workers was exposed. &nbsp;certainly, it did not arise in a couple of days and needs to see the brief backdrop of the forced/bonded labourers. Another part of the paper takes care of the current conditions and rehabilitation policy of the bonded labourers and its impact. The study suggests that identifying and rehabilitation policy of bonded labour will be helpful for these voiceless labourers.</em></p> 2023-01-01T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2022 GLS KALP – Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies Life Without Money: Chinese College Students View on the Influence of Money on the Level of Happiness 2022-12-31T11:38:10+0530 Qingqing Zhou Rosalie Palaroan <p>Happiness is a lifelong pursuit. The balance between money and happiness is intricate. Meanwhile, college life is a golden time for students to find the meaning of life. Therefore, understanding the relationship between money and happiness for college students can increase life satisfaction and realize the value of life and the sense of social existence. This paper determined the relationship between money and the happiness of Chinese college students and documented the psychological mechanism of money on happiness from Chinese college students' perspectives. The purpose was to find out the relationship between money and happiness of 96 Chinese college students using an Oxford validated questionnaire and Chinese college students' perceptions of money and happiness. A mixed-method paradigm was used in this research. Ninety-six respondents were randomly selected from Wenzhou-Kean University located in China from four schools: College of Business &amp; Public Management, College of Liberal Arts, College of Architecture &amp; Design, and College of Science and Technology. The research found a positive relationship between family wealth and happiness, but there is no significant relationship between monthly income and happiness for Chinese college students. In most Chinese college students' opinions, money and happiness are not directly related. Moreover, Chinese college students gain happiness through money through self-fulfillment. This research paper would greatly help college students who will go to society and still be trapped in the relationship between money and happiness.</p> 2023-01-01T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2022 GLS KALP – Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies Pension Plan in LIC, A Case Study on Chamarajanagara Taluk 2022-12-31T11:52:02+0530 Mahesha M B Pooja S <p>India is a second largest populated country with rich human resource, which spread over in organized and unorganized sector.

This relationship has grown and achieved significant milestones despite numerous ups and downs. China's growth began in 2010, when it overtook Japan to become the world's second largest economy after the United States. This has piqued the interest of countries in the region seeking development possibilities from China. Furthermore, in order to accomplish a great power's strategic ambitions in the twenty-first century, China must set strong goals, with the economy serving as the driving force behind all of its development operations. And the Philippines, a neighbouring country with many characteristics that coincide with China's political, economic, and diplomatic goals, has emerged as a key player in China's rise. While after independence in 1946, the Philippines became a close ally of the United States. When the cold war ended, the US no longer paid much attention to Southeast Asia, and the Philippines. Afterward, the US returned to isolationism, withdrawing its troops from two military bases in "Clark" and "Subic" (1992) which created a power vacuum in Southeast Asia. This has created conditions for China to increase its influence in the region through activities related to the South China Sea. So, when it comes to implementing the policy of greater ties with China, the Philippines can't ignore the US influence. Because the Philippines is one of the US's Asian allies, with Japan, South Korea, and Australia, and is a driving force behind the US's policy of growing US dominance in the Asia-Pacific region. This article will focus on studying the impacts of the US on China and the Philippines, as well as the progress of the Philippines - China relations, Philippines – The US relations in many fields, with the focus being politics - diplomacy, and economy and security - defence in the first two decades of the 21st century.</p> 2023-01-01T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2022 GLS KALP – Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies
