Kunda Kunda Bharati Qutab Institutional area New Delhi decorated Dr Natalia with their highest (and most valued Rs 500,000) on March 7th Sunday. The award was presented by Ms. Sonia Gandhi to Dr Natalia Zheleznova, for her research on ‘Kunda Kunda' and associated publications as books and papers. She is a research scholar at Moscow University Russia.

ISSJS is proud of her achievements and wish her many more such awards.

Unique and innovative experiment (first time) to conduct a series of ten national Seminars at different universities of India was concluded successfully on March 8th at Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Sanskrit Vidhyapeeth New Delhi

This year ISJS dedicated itself to network the Indian universities and research institutes so that Jain Studies and relevance of Jain principles to 21st century could be discussed, researched and deliberated in the academic community. Also ISJS always felt the strong need to interface the Indian institutions and the overseas universities to start a dialogue on Jain Studies so that multi cultural and viewpoints can review, analyze and present the Jain principles and way of life. With these in mind the following ten seminars were organized which were completed successfully creating an excellent network of academic community and an open environment of dialogue and exchange of research and ideas. These seminars will greatly enhance the ISJS programs. ISJS thanks the associate institutions and their coordinators and look forward to enhance this cooperation further.

ISSJS2010 programs oversubscribed. Largest ISSJS2010 planned in 2010 summer.

This year we received many times more applications than we had available facilities. Also to meet the specialized needs of different levels of participants, we had planned separate programs at three levels namely beginners, middle level and advanced for faculty and research scholars. Table below shows the number of candidates accepted and are likely to attend the four ISSJS2010 programs. As can be seen we expect over 50 participants to be benefitted by ISSJS2010, making it to be the largest ISSJS class so far. Also we have added two new venues namely Somaiya Vidhya Vihar Mumbai and Teerthanker Mahaveer University Moradabad as the ISSJS camps for a total of five camp sites for the three ISSJS classes which will run almost concurrently
