The sync-sql module is designed to make synchronous queries to the database. Since normal SQL queries are asynchronous in node.js but if you want to run it synchronously, then it is possible using this module. In synchronized SQL, the result set is returned when the query is executed. Note: Do not use this module in production mode as node.js is designed to be asynchronous. 

Installation of sync-sql module:
