I am through with my paper presentation and that is always a relief. I did manage to generate a little bit of discussion where I said people on the messageboard report that Agra City is not attractive at all even though the Taj Mahal is fabulous. Well the quote that I was using was a little stronger but the message was the same. Created some offense to some people.
Have to be more careful how to phrase these findings. There was a debate on my methodology and in India it still feels that if you have not done a quantitative research you have not done research at all! I was a little surprised with that. In the evening I was checking with a senior academician about what should I do differently next time and he said, “You are doing fine.” That was quite enouraging.
But the worst of all is I have a badly upset stomach and I can hardly eat anything. After writing this, I am wondering who will read this at home and get worried but then I am taking my chances. So, I am dead tired by now. See you all.
Will catch up with all the comments when I come back. Thanks for them a lot, they are a real morale booster.
