Please don't get me wrong. Academic work need not be detached from 
real-world usefulness, in fact, academic work should have the potential 
to solve real-world problems. I guess it is the time. I think that 
academics should tackle real-world issues when a self-sustaining level 
of core competency is there. It is certainly more difficult to craft an 
academic question out of a real-world situation than to craft one out of 
nothing. The latter can even be a case of grabbing a hypothetical 
question from a text-book...
