"Take up one idea! Make that idea in your life, think of it. Dream of it and live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves every part of your body be full of that idea and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success", said Swami Vivekananda. This is the "Success Mantra" for the Research & Development for the faculties as well as students.
