Q. As if one Ph D wasn’t enough, you’ve just done a second. And now we hear that you  intend doing another? It’s evident from speaking with you that you are academically inclined, but what is your motivating factor?

 

A. From a tangible angle, it’s a PhD. But for me, it is meant to upskill me cognitively. I have no particular fetish for a PhD. But the process keeps one’s mind active. It’s not so much about motivation, which is an outside-in process. It’s more about volition which is an inside-out process. Knowledge is a search. There is no full stop there.
