Research is an art of imagination that evokes the power of understanding, perception, reasoning and judgment. They have become the building blocks in varied fields of education, culture and development. With the enormous and meticulous efforts of many master minds, we see and experience, what was a mere dream. Researches are methodical approach shouldered to discover, observe, intervene and disrupt the muddles in an orderly manner thereby resolving and fencing the knots from further occurrence. It is one’s curiosity and persistence that paves way towards promising revelations in the arena of research. The evolution of mankind from just an ape man to a mega magnatar has re-shaped our reality. Today, researchers, with the ultra – modern innovative technologies, are trained to think out of the box, who not only supports the society with new inventions but also strive to bring into existence what once was a mirage.
