Software reuse, despite being relatively new to the Indian software industry, generates a lot of interest amongst the cross-section of people in the industry. The reuse philosophy as well as its practice evokes varied response across sections even in the same organisation, from top management to project managers to developers. This article reviews the present status of software reuse practices in the Indian information technology firms on the basis of a questionnaire survey, field visits, and a number of interviews with industry participants and researchers. Adequate review of literature, supported by expert opinion survey and questionnaire survey, helped develop the conceptual model for software reuse. The structural equation model was tested with the data obtained from the questionnaire responses. The output model throws light on the causes of reuse and its consequences and also confirms the findings from the statistical analysis of the questionnaire data.

Are Conventional Farmers Becoming Interested in Organic Practices?
Despite the fact that farming is one of the most important human activities that brings food to our tables, it contributes significantly to global pollution. Unsustainable farm practices result in the loss of biodiversity, climate changes, erosion, and the pollution of soil and water.
