There are no qualms in accepting the fact that − in the past − things were different from what they are now. Even though science transformed extensively from our personal laptops, tablets, and phones to behind-the-scenes technology, it is yet a continuing effort to discover and increase human knowledge and understanding. Science is ubiquitous and has made very rapid progress and completely transformed outwardly the manner of our living — allowing us to develop new technologies, solve practical problems, and make informed decisions — both individually and collectively. In its pursuit of excellence, it has lead to pollution, environmental crisis, greater violence, sorrow, tension, new pathogenic diseases, chemical and biological war to name a few. On the one hand, Science (a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method and research) has been a boon to mankind and on the other hand, it has also proved to be a cause of great distress or annoyance.
