The yield from a toothless paper


"Life is like a camera, just FOCUS on what's important and CAPTURE the good times, DEVELOP from the negatives and if things don't work out, just take another SHOT”- Anonymous
This is one brilliant quote that possesses the magnetic muscle to lure my attention throughout the seasons. It keeps me moving always.
Last Friday, on acceptance of my toothless research paper, I was invited for an oral presentation in the 9th Siam Physics Conference. This is an annual event convened in Thailand to crossbreed the professional ideas between the scientists, researchers, teachers and students from both national and international zones.  Held at Rajamangala University of Technology Isan at Nathon Ratchasima (North-East of Thailand) this year, it was 8 hours ride by train from my university.
The long journey to a completely new place was tiring and terrible though. And traveling the whole night has burnt all the calories of my enthusiasm and liveliness to a certain degree.  But even at the time when the whole world has slept, one reason kept my nerve awake: A chance to present my paper in the presence of top-notch gangs of physicists.

I spoke on the small survey study done with my friend under the guidance of my Physics professor Dr. Suchai Nopparatjamjomras. I don’t claim to have been very successful in presenting my work but it invested in me a high sense of pride and confidence. After my presentation was over, few even came up with their cameras to take a snap with me. I felt honored to have been in the circle of those world-class presenters.
The 3 days conference kept on adding new names into my memory. I met people from all walks of life and from every rung of the careers. I captured those beautiful moments that kept on fleeting. I became friends with some powerful keynote speakers, professors, international students and the hosts. The yield of happiness and satisfaction I derived from my toothless paper was beyond compare because I could capture the good times within a shorter span of my life there.

  4. Dear Ms. Ygraine,
    There is always a reason for me to write and the reason is you, the most considerate person who never regrets for reading my gibberish pages.
    It has brought me so much of pleasure and satisfaction because I happened to attend such a big conference with so many scientists and physicists. The stay was just amazing and memorable.

  7. Phub,
    I am in a way grateful to you for reading my article and for revering me as your boss. But, usually, I hate that word 'boss' because I have a terrible stories which suck s my life.
    Thank you anyways.

  9. Riku sir,
    Thank you so much. I agree with your quote but may be it is otherwise this time. I was in fact lighted by the presence of those physics think-tanks. Get associated during such event is marvelous.
    Hope I get such kind of chances hereafter too. And thank you for your wishes too. I mean it because you spoke my prayers. Thank you.
