Research is defined as systematic, self critical enquiry, whether scientific or otherwise. The enquiry is aimed at understanding a thing or phenomenon or solving a problem and when an enquiry is aimed at understanding it, termed as basic or fundamental research, which pursues knowledge and may or may not have practical or commercial use. When the enquiry is aimed at applying the available knowledge for practical or commercial use, or for solving a problem faced in practice, it is termed as applied research. Many a times a research undertaken loses its focus primarily because of lack of a scientific approach.
