Abstract / Description

Research is a systematic and objective search for, and analysis of, information relevant to identification and solution of problems. Hence, by definition, it is one of the most difficulty things to do in a developing country, where very little information is available in publication form. Whatever data is available from secondary sources is inconsistent and, sometimes, even inaccurate. Often the form of presentation is not standardized causing innumerable hardship to the researcher.
