|Abstract||It is shown that a pulsar surrounded by a corotating magnetosphere region can possess a net charge. If there is no streaming, the star must be charged. The result is shown for the special relativistic case as well as for the fully general-relativistic model, including the effects of strong gravitation and the dragging of inertial frames. The value of the charge is of the order of 10$sup 12$ coulombs and depends upon the angle between the rotation and magnetic dipole axes. In the special relativistic case, the dipole magnetosphere contains no net charge, whereas when general relativity is included, the magnetosphere possesses net charge which can be comparable to that of the star itself. This is a new general-relativisitc effect. Because of their net charge, pulsars possessing this type of corotating magnetosphere region are sources of charged particles. (AIP)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
