I have seen flowers come in stony places
And kind things done by men with ugly faces
And the gold cup won by the worst horse at the races,
So I trust in myself, too

Let's not make more fuss about it. After all, we all claim ourselves to "academics." let present the simplest definition of a "Ph.D.", or a "PhD". Here you are colleagues, I just had to dig it out:

The PhD degree - a simple definition

"The term 'PhD' stands for 'Doctor of Philosophy'. In most cases, a PhD:

    Is an advanced postgraduate degree involving three or more years of independent research on an original topic.
    Is carried out with the support of one or more expert academic supervisors.
    Results in a thesis that offers a significant original contribution to knowledge.
    Confers the title ‘Doctor’ upon successful candidates.
    Is the highest academic degree a student can achieve and is considered the de facto entrance qualification for a career in academia."

It is the test of patience, perseverance, critical thinking, comprehension, deep passion, constant hardworking, and stamina. In many cases, however, none of these is found. 

My request to Ariful Islam Laskar Sir: Please do lose your faith and confidence. At the end of the day, you will win the crown.
