There is no hope of doing perfect Research (Griffiths, 1998, p97)
Research implies ‘searching again’. It is a careful study of a subject, especially in order to discover new facts or information about it (http://www.oxfordadvancedlearnersdictionary.com/dictionary/research).

Data is collected on a particular subject from various sources.Psychology differs from person to person, because of this the synthasised information results in inaccuracy. Results derived from a research never change in a perfect research. But this is rare. Thompson laid down his atomic model resembling a water melon, and electrons embedded in an atom, as seeds in a water melon. Later, Bohr proved the electrons to be in motion, and hence Thompson’s model to be inappropriate. Dobernier discovered that the elements present during his period, when arranged in the order of their increasing atomic masses, the mass of the middle element equals the average mass of the immediate preceding and succeeding elements. Modern Periodic Table proved this theory inapplicable for all the 117 elements known presently.
Inventions and discoveries seem to be perfect momentarily. But later its imperfections would be proved. Quest for knowledge, improvisation of the present inventions and discoveries, or dissatisfied nature of the human beings compels them into researching. Human minds tend to be illogical at times. Experiments fail at times leading towards no hope of doing perfect research. Research, according to Umardaud of www.expertcolumn.com, will always have imperfections, but quality and...
