A clarification

India
April 23, 2013 1:13am CST
All my friends know I and my wife are sick so I keep researching about health issues, remedies etc and share here for benefit of all; most are harmless herbal remedies; [b]it is not possible for me to test them before sharing. [/b] Someone has once commented; ‘are you a Professor or your name is Professor?’ after that in all discussions created by me I added ‘Professor Dr. Bhuwan Saraf.’ PhD’. Next someone commented; ‘you are not the only PhD’ here. Ok true there must be tons. [b]This type of comment is painful, I feel hurt. [/b] So let me make it clear what I am, basically I am a Professor of Physics, retired in 2006 after teaching in university and colleges for over 3 decades. I have produced 29 PhD’s and 11 more are still working. More than 300 of my research papers have been published in Scientific Journals here and abroad. My PhD is on Ultrasonics and ‘Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field’ Therapy. Besides this I have a PG Diploma in Magneto Therapy, couples of degrees on Homoeopathy and a PGDCA. I am also a Registered Astrologer, Numerologist and Gemologist attached to Almanac publishers. I run a ‘Pain management Service’ here in my city and attached to several hospitals and social organizations. I am telling all this because I felt hurt. Hence in some discussions I request to keep comment clean. If you were in my place, how you will feel? Thanks in advance. Professor Dr. Bhuwan Saraf. PhD. April 23. 2013. Cheers have a lucky day ahead. [/i][/u][i][u]

you have earned those titles through hard work and perseverance so i don't see anything wrong in adding those to your name. it's even good to know that if we need professional advise on matters in these fields, we have an expert to turn to here in mylot. don't mind these rude people, prof. they have nothing to contribute but they don't want to admit this. ignorance coupled with arrogance is dangerous but being the way they are, they do not realise this. they think that their barbed comments are entertaining. little do they realise that they are the only ones who find their rude remarks amusing. it is best to ignore them.

Namaskar Sir Personally, it would never bother me. I have learned over the time that on useless social media interactions (those where unknown people come across and post such crap comments) - there is nothing to be concerned upon. I mean, here, at my lot we still have some control but look at the others, they are mostly filth. So why care to explain who am I or what I do to such people who will even never have the guts to return back on any comment and see what has been said. The people who posted such hurtful comments are here just for the sake of their fun, money and they think it is all great if they can ridicule anyone... this is sad but this is where the next generation is heading to. So forget worrying about such comments/responses. For those whom you matter, I am sure, will never raise such questions.

Hi, Professor! I am so sorry that you have to experience the insults that some might have experienced in this site. And it is just sad why others would be so obnoxiously commenting that way. Whether or not you are a Professor, I do feel that you need respect as much as others on this site. I would definitely feel hurt if I was treated the same.

Chances favor the prepared. I am sorry to learn what you have been undergoing and my heart goes out to you here. I hope that you will not feel defeated and give up your course or plans to whatever you are doing as you get your new awareness here. Reality is harsh and I am sure you are more qualified to attest and tell that there are trolls that will make people in whatever population real life or online. No exceptions to who or what you are, we will have our encounters with them some day or some where. You need to see this differently and come out the better person here. We have to choose our friends even when you are online so don't pay any attention to all that unwanted babbles. No clarification is needed here. An empty sack will never be able to stay upright.

Hi dear Angel Here in India after you get your Master's degree you can get registered for PhD, this is abbreviation for Doctor of Philosophy. one has to remain in active research in his/her field of specialization, publish research papers in Journals of International repute, after 3 years you submit your Thesis to the university, it is examined by 2 from abroad and one from india; next you fave viva examination ; if found suitable you are awarded your PhD, the highest degree. I stood first class first in my B.Sc (Hons) and M.Sc, topper in the university I was awarded Gold-medal for this. I AM NOT HERE FOR MONEY.

hi professor, some person sometimes could be so insensitive and totally "RUDE". she/he may say "I am from a free country" to justify what he/she say... whatever! that doesn't give her/him the right to be rude and not to be told so. still the word is RUDE. I can even add - maybe they are uneducated hence unpolished. didn't it cross your mind professor? maybe the one who made that comment didn't even finish high school that's why he/she answers like he/she is uneducated? where is the etiquette? the professor was here as a visiting professor and he was our guest during his stay in this country. many scholars approached him to guide for PhD. ann

Honey I can feel you too feel kind of hurt after reading this, let's be polite in responses, politeness costs nothing. Yes many had approached me during my stay in your home to guide for PhD Since it is difficult to guide from here; i told one lady scholar Elsa to come here, she will come this July.

Hello Sir, It's quite evident from the discussion and the responses you have given here that you are quite miffed, upset and hurt with the kind of comments you received from someone here. It was very rude of that person to have commented this way to you. Also it is fair on your part to be upset, but do not let this pain you anymore. Even bad and worst things have some good and positive angles in them. I know that person's comment did hurt you, but see what revelation has come out of it. This discussion clearly tells about your academic and professional qualifications and also your contribution towards society through "Pain Management Service". Even if I would not have known this it wouldn't have mattered to me, but after knowing all this I know who I can seek advice from in times of need. Now smile sir and cheer up

Great achievements! Only few can achieve that in a lifetime. I envy you. I wish I could be as successful as you are before I retire. I am young and still long way to go. Never mind those rude individuals. They don't know you and they are just nothing beside you.

Hey, you earned the title, you have a right to be proud of it, and to use it if you like. Some people just like to criticize. btw My dad's degree is in physics, he specializes in microwave technology. He never did go on to get a PHD though...

A pleasant day Professor2010, I understand how you felt and it is quite painful to be questioned like that. Perhaps, that person doesn't have anything good in his/her mind that he/she just want to throw foolish words around. Anyhow, just don't mind what he/she has done. What matters most, is, you have all the right what username you want to use. Hence, it is not questionable at all either you are or not. I guess, giving respect should be taken here.

Someone may gave you strong words, but better you just ignore it, don't feel hurt, when you share something, people will give their comments about it and for sure you can't avoid unfriendly comments.

I think that many people may mis-interpret the putting of your name and qualifications as boasting and not good form. Not the right thing to do as we do not state our qualifications. But this is possibly a cultural thing so do not bother about it but it would not be done by people in the western world. I do not mean to jupset you but am suggesting a possibility of why the person said this to you

Thanks for the response, i am not a showy person at all, i was not putting my name or qualification here, but Someone has once commented; ‘are you a Professor or your name is Professor?’ after that in all discussions created by me I added ‘Professor Dr. Bhuwan Saraf.’ PhD’. Next someone commented; ‘you are not the only PhD’ here. Is that not sufficient to make one feel bad?

It is always hurtful when people make negative comments or question our authenticity. yet, we cannot control what people think of us. We can only be ourselves and offer whatever we have to contribute. I believe most people appreciate who you are and what you have to offer.

Respected Sir, I can understand why you feel upset ,there are some people who comment like that just for fun, hurting others is not fun its ridiculous. However there are lot of people including me who adore and respect you immensely,that is why i always address you by writing "Respected Sir".Someone who has good moral values understands that its our duty to respect our elders, parents and teachers.However there are exceptions ,like you mentioned, but ignoring them is the only choice we have unfortunately.Anyways you are doing great job in your real life and here, immense respect for all the valuable knowledge you share and guidance you provide.Best wishes sir and full support from my side

Dear professor,why do you get worried about this?There was a person called Jesus Christ who came into this word to give his own life to save the sinners and the lost,even he was crucified on a cross by us for our sins 2000years ago.So do not loose heart keep on doing good,I am trying to get a Hindi Bible for you to read,then you will understand the power of selfless love that conquers all the evils of the world.I never thought anything about your qualification or credibility so think there are people who likes your writing.So keep on doing your good work.

Hello uncle. There are people who would be rude to others even if the person did nothing wrong. I know it would definitely hurt, but there are a lot of your friends here who know you and respect your friendship. So it is better you do not bother even replying to these people. It is an absolute waste of time.

I always enjoy reading your posts Prof. The contents have added much to my knowledge bank. I have no doubts that you are a learned person with vast experiences from the quality writings you shared here. I feel honored to be on your friends' list as this ensures that I won't miss any of your posts though I must admit here that I am intellectually handicap to respond to some of the deep topics you forwarded. But I did read them all and picked a lot of information for keeps. I hope you continue your sharing here. Just ignore those who question your status as they just couldn't differentiate between a diamond and a stone. Cheers!
