It is often stated that we live in the age of science: that science and technology are shaping our very existence. No one described the impact of science and technology (S&T in brief) more graphically than Alvin Toffler in his book ‘The Future Shock’. scientific ideas are being rapidly translated into technological inventions and rapidly we are assimilate them in our lives. Yet the rapidity with which this is taking place is not proving entirely beneficial to the society. Rather, the situation resembles that of a human being invited to a buffet dinner where he or she is confronted with a feast of excellent eatables served in rapid succession and tempted to eat them as fast as they come.
