I hope all of you have had a great week. Mine was a hectic one. Rushing to meet the date line and it was done yesterday.
It was indeed a great session; in fact it was a fruitful and meaningful one. Got to know some other students in the group - all of them are seriously very young, energetic, exuberant and of course ambitious. No doubt they'll be awarded the title 'Dr' in no time.
Our supervisor, Assoc Prof Bala, was his usual optimistic, kind and caring self. Besides food and beverages, he provided us with loads of invaluable knowledge. He led us through the long lonely journey with patience and wisdom. He made us feel accepted, understood, important, valued and validated. He reminded us that we're not invisible or alone in this long journey.
I'm looking forward to attending more similar sessions.
