  • I just realized that I started my life's journey over a half-century ago with both good and bad experiences. I have successfully passed through the channel of life probably because I am a Hydrobiologist. Just like plankton, I allow the currents, waves and tides to take me to new destinations while experiencing and unravelling the secrets of life; a synonym of aquatic ecosystems. I have resolved that no matter how rogued the channel of hydrobiology is I will take it to the simplest understandable form.
