Next, Dr. Vilas Adhav expressed his views and said that, research requires consistency and questioning. He added that many mysterious things can be understood only if a question is asked.

Our research should be for the society, for the students, for the country and for everyone in the world. He also said that research cannot be started without asking the question why.
