Academics are caught up in their world of teaching and research. After all, the science of discovery and the transmission of ideas constitutes the DNA of an academic, and is the source of the primary motive behind an earlier decision not to join the “regular” work-force. It has been argued that many academics display mild aspergian traits. Does this imply that academics meander through academic life somehow shielded or oblivious to the sublime amalgamation of students comprising the educational throng? Assuredly, this has never been the case with me; I have been touched.
