To ensure this the students are advised to refrain from putting personal questions during the lectures. Also, to encourage introspection we implore the inquisitive minds to always exercise patience whenever a question pops up in their mind, invest 24 hours to sincerely look for the answer within or around…and only then, if imperative, ask the question in person or may give the question in writing at the end of lecture.
