Exciting Moments of Research
When I joined the Ph.D. program at my alma mater, the very first question bugged me was, what I was supposed to do to qualify as a researcher? The other obvious question was why the Government was paying me a scholarship or fellowship? Was it meant for demonstrating creativity on my intellectual exercises? Was it a kind of support from the society, as it extends to other forms of recreational arts and faculty? Did my country really expect me to solve a burning problem, which would bring the progress and prosperity of this nation? Frankly, I was confused and I should admit that till date, there is no qualitative change in the state of my confusion in this regard. However, I started on my own way looking at various issues on a research area of electrical sciences, called image processing, without bothering much about their impact and applicability.
