Conceptualizing has been considered as the most difficult part of the research where the idea is being invented about the research for the first time (Marianne, 2004). It has been discussed very rarely by the researchers. In research training institutes, teachers usually focus over the procedural part of conducting research and they left conceptualization phase and start believing that students would be able to produce a sagacious topic themselves magically, which in reality is not possible. This way of teaching has been criticized for last many years but unfortunately the system of higher education is still the same. But on the other hand it’s alarming because the students have been under trouble while inventing different topics for the research and their uncertainties touches the skies when they are doing it for the first time. So this system should be taken seriously for improvements because otherwise the trouble of students while formulating ideas for research would keep on increasing day by day. It would be beneficial of the researchers would give a bottom line idea to the new research students so that they get the basic idea that how to formulate ideas for researches. Few researchers have said that the idea originates from existing problems of the society but again it is complex to give those ideas a smart shape and a restricted boundary.
