As a young Undergraduate student wondering in the wilderness of academic uncertainty and misma of confusion all I needed was a sense of direction and hope. I found this in my philosophy professors who always offered the “other side of the story” with objectivity that life so requires.  This was an eye-opener and I made a decision to pursue philosophy further.  I came know with utter clarity that, critical and analytical approach to life, as embedded in philosophy, is indispensible; and my yearning to unravel the facts lives on!
