My journey into academics at the age of 52

Dr. Sanjay Runwal receiving his Masters Degree at the convocation ceremony at Edinburgh (UK) in 2016It was an evening in July 2012 and I had something running through my mind. I called my wife and shared with her my dream of completing my doctorate. She was aware that I just had a Bachelor in Electrical Engineering from the Malaviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT) Jaipur which I had passed way back in 1983. I would therefore need to study for my Masters before joining a doctoral program. She suggested that I better take a Masters from one of the open universities in India before applying for Doctoral studies.
