The Talk

today, gave a presentation of my paper, 'The Evolution of Kaantabay: The Influence of Policy and Politics (Pre-1989 to 2010)' at the asia research centre. the key would be ruling my nerves which i did not do by imagining a naked audience. rather, i just proceeded from modulating my voice and speaking as calmly and clearly as possible to get the arguments and findings across. now i am released. the dread of an arc presentation has passed and another one does not look as daunting.
