Q. As someone who has earned a doctorate after much effort – and not once, but twice over, do you feel cheated when you find people sporting a ‘Dr’ for near-nothing-at-all?

 

A. A doctorate is a recognition of one’s commitment to learning and contributing to a new knowledge space. In some cases, it happens through an academic rigour. In other cases, the life of an individual itself is a material for doctorate and the contribution through empiricism earns them the accolade. Hence, I feel there is no one way to contribute to knowledge creation.
