    He believes that it is a matter of concern for all researchers that even with a high rated young / experienced talent pool; we are not among the top most R&D institutions of the world. We have a huge list of world renowned agriculturists, chemists, botanists, zoologists, sociologists, economists, psychologists and other scientists, but countable numbers are patent among them. Our young scientist is confused in setting up his future path. Our hundreds of national issues are still to be addressed but we are conducting research of fantasy, which might help others but not to this poor country. Even our most of the research policies are not in the line of our demands. If, at one end, inter disciplinary collaboration is required, on the other end, bridging among research institutions and industry is deficient. In most of the cases, our missions do not match long term umbrella policies of our government. There is no doubt that scientists are the back bone of the research institutions but they are being deprived of resources. On the other hand, we are investing least on human development. There is a dire need to establish sustainable environment to fill this gap. In such a way, not only the skills could be improved but also the needy but intelligent and enthusiastic researchers could be benefited.

    He loves to work in a free and creative environment as a motivational and supportive team leader to uplift higher education and meaningful research for university building economy. He has proved himself an honest, conscious, truthful collaborative, distinguished strategic planner, financial manager, resource developer and pedagogic team leader to work with his colleagues in the best interest of this nation. He as educationists/scientists works on indigenous problems through indigenous resources and is trying to transform the nation into a knowledge-based economy.
