Not beware of apples that fall on head…

But, be aware of each apple that fall on your head ….!!!

Research had been looked upon as a frame bound subject that require meticulous approach with enormous physical mental and financial exhausting procedure. Research works are often understood to be the highest level of academic achievement and very few people take it up as a profession. When it comes to dental education in country, our country contributes thousands of post graduates every year yet, contribute very little in the dental research world. Majority of dental equipment, materials, instruments and even a worthy journal literature or text books are all foreign owned and even the research over such materials by one of us here are so flimsy.
Why do we lack a significant share among the fast-growing dental research field? It is all probably because of an improper understanding of research, lack of true guidance in it or all above we lack an understanding on what exactly is contemporary research.
Every dental colleges should come forward in this field making its under graduate students realize the importance of doing research mixed with their regular academic curriculum, its equally important that these students are given a right orientation in this field. The basic understanding about research starts from differentiating basics of research that bloom and get nurtured inside a human brain from the researches that happen in complex laboratories across the world.
One need to understand, major discoveries that has happened in our world were all accidental. It all arise from a single common point ‘a disturbing question’ in the mind of any person. Every such question that left any person restless, make him a researcher and invariably this led them to follow an unknown path of research methodology. If the person who conceive this question is lucky enough to get him involved in it completely, it leads him to a point where he reaches the right answer or will cut open a pathway that would become a guiding path to the one following him. When the former is considered a successful researcher the later is considered a precious guide.
Inspired from the questions of past on “why apple falls down, why sky appear blue, or what happened to microbes in my petri dish?”
As the picture on top speaks, do not beware and avoid anything that could disturb you and leave you uncomfortable, but be aware of each thing that happen around you, be aware of anything that leaves behind a question.
