Karim R. Lakhani, one of the phd students in my program defended his dissertation a couple weeks ago. It was a sign to me of how far I have to go yet and also an inspiration for all there is to learn. Of the experience, he says,
"On September 30 2005 I defended (and passed) my doctoral dissertation oral exams. It is such a great feeling to be done with much of the formal parts of my "higher" education. At the same time I have a feeling that this is just the beginning . . . Aga Shahid Ali's wonderfull book of poetry Rooms Are Never Finished provides an apt title to my post and captures my view that scholarship is a journey."
