I Feel Fulfilled
I am playing
Football in a Basketball Court
One of my research paper on Ethiopia (2008) was used as a foundation and base for a Doctoral dissertation by a student Yishak Degefu Mushere from University of South Africa. He has quoted my study extensively in his 318 page Doctoral research on
INDIGENIZING THE BASIC EDUCATION CURRICULA FOR THE GAMO ETHNIC GROUP IN ETHIOPIAN PRIMARY SCHOOLS.
I am excited, happy and feel fulfilled that my research inspired someone to go further in his search for knowledge. This recognition and appreciation boost my self-esteem and make me think that I have contributed something to the field of education in Ethiopia in particular and Africa in general.
The following are some of the excerpts from his Doctoral Dissertation.

so often I feel "I am playing football in a basketball court"
