Self-Examination

the study of politics could be daunting for a greenhorn like me. i'm attending a conference here in perth and while i marvel at how good the analyses of presenters are, at the same time, i shirk at the responsibility vested now on these fat but not necessarily able shoulders. it's not being as good as them the question, but rather, how can i make justice with the methods on one hand, and the situation in naga that needs telling. how far can i go with the telling and would i be as authoritative and credible? i stand on the shoulders of giants but i'm a midget compared to them.
