It criticizes present academia’s sole concern for papers and grants and no commitment to social development or nation building. The book gives a glimpse of a more meaningful academic career that stresses on knowledge dissemination, idealism and developing a conscience for the bigger picture of civilizing societies. It also provides valuable tips to forge ahead of others in the same line of profession. The book is a grave reminder to Vice Chancellors of public universities of their sacred role in ensuring that all knowledge must not be used solely for self-promotion and private wealth generation but should be used as a conscience for a strong and civil society.
