Abstract: The Doctoral programme leads to the highest academic degree in one’s life. Originally, this programme was postulated and conceived to provide platform to the young and bright minds to search for and unravel the hidden path of knowledge with demystifying the century-old irrational beliefs and misconceptions. Over the decades or so, this notion led to the dazzling array of discoveries, insightful research and conceptual understanding, unveiling the nature’s working, and made the life easier for human beings around the world. However, the core purpose of research and science educations seems to be deviating from its trajectory which needs to be comprehensively introspected and rectified by all the stakeholders concerned before it is too late.
