A post by a PhD student

Yeah, I am doing a PhD. Its been almost 5 months now. Many people do ask me what it is all about. And I give hazy fuzzy answers like it is about research, about trying to create/discover/prove something new, something never done before and blah blah :D. As about my work, I knew what area I was dabbling in, what kind of problem I was looking at and so on but didnt have much of a clue on how to go about it. Yeah, I did falter these 5 months, spent time on things which are somewhat irrelevant now, spent some more time on doing things which at that time seemed quite big and important but now appear insignificant. Most of the significant things were done in a day or two. Anyway, I can safely say that now I do know what I am trying to do and how I should go about doing it. Yeah, the path is slowly making itself visible. And yeah, it looks like I shall enjoy walking/running/stumbling/faltering on it :D. And maybe even get lost midway :). Well, thats what Phd is all about. Discover something about the world and at the same time discover something about yourself .. (shouldnt I be giving out this gyaan once I complete the phd .. and not while starting it? :D)

And yeah, I should be changing this template soon. Got kind of bored with it.
And yeah, finally I have written a normal general post after a long long time. No stories, long accounts or 'poetry'! :D
And yeah, I try to bypass the popular PS trend with this 'And yeah' phrase :D
