It is slightly embarrassing to write and then display a profile that is pompous at best. That said, let me exploit this chance to do some promotion. After a brief stint in journalism, I returned to academics this year with the hope that this time around, I would stick for good. At present, I am working with a project in Manipal that is my key area of interest i.e. a combination of education and linguistics. Hopefully, the project would lead to a PhD preferably, in the next five years.
