That we are now placed in best of times as far as Humanity is concerned is undoubted in terms of intelligence, resources, awareness and technology.
We have forgotten our old research culture which brought out the niche expertise in all and the channels of communication then were so successful in making all happy, contented and blissful. We were comparatively more at peace with ourselves and coexistence was our culture. We were more matured. What went wrong?
Possibly we got caught in the history and went towards materialism and somehow failed to save all that we had and we were proud of. WE HAD A GREAT RESEARCH CULTURE. To a large extent Competition rather than capability became our mantra. Luxury rather than Need and requirement became our aim. Money rather than respect and value system attracted us. Division rather than unity became the norm. Survival rather than satisfaction and enrichment caught our culture. Rigour and hard work took back seat and lust and quick short cut became our methodology.
Result is obvious for all of us to see. Research Culture must come back. We must start enjoying what we do and do what we enjoy. Only the knowing the best explored path are to be treaded rather than a mad rush or a market driven human race. Path to be followed in life should emanate from our knowledge, understanding, ethical impact to masses, self driven and self satisfying goal. Entrepreneurs of today have to think multi-dimensionally and see the future days to come and work to achieve with confidence and maturity. Half hearted, half-baked, or load taken with low confidence is bound to fail. One should embark on this journey of uncertain life with greatest certainty or confidence based on the research in that field. Le us not waste it.
