Publish or Perish. That is the Mantra which though not new, has taken the scientific committee by storm, especially in recent times. If this same Mantra had captured the imagination of the scientist, that would have definitely benefitted humanity and science. However, it has failed to stimulate the true imagination, and has left behind in its wake the desire to attempt increasing numbers of publications for the purpose of visibility, academic limelight, access to easier grants and more recently in an Indian context, for the purpose of promotion at work.
