The rapid development in communication technology has given rise to strong research interest on Wireless Networks. In recent years many researchers have focused on designing routing schemes which would successfully operate on the real time environment of Mobile Adhoc NETwork (MANET). MANET is a collection of mobile devices and is self-configuring, dynamically changing, multi-hop wireless network. Forwarding packets through this dynamic changing network is a challenging issue. Most existing MANET protocols are suggested by considering different scenarios of mobile nodes of MANET which function properly in an optimistic manner.
