Description of "unknown scientist"

This book is mostly a narration of my experience in science starting with my school days and through the many years in scientific research in India. I have used these as the basis for very critical evaluation of science as it is being perused in India. I have narrated a personal analysis of what ails Indian science, knowing fully well that anecdotes are much worse than even statistical correlation as the basis to identify causes. As the title makes clear, I can not support my analysis with my professional accomplishments. Neither is the analysis an excuse or justification for the lack of it. The analysis may appear unnecessarily harsh and pessimistic but hope that readers and critics would still concede that the motivation was a sincere conviction that this bitter medicine is needed for betterment of Indian science.
