    Hi, I am Khin cho win from Myanmar, PhD scholar at IITH. I realize that IITH is not only a good research environment but also a good learning environment that can be explored. Since the faculty, staff, and friends are very understanding and supportive of me all the time, I did not feel the culture shock and enjoyed the diversity of the Indian culture. In addition, the learning resources are very helpful to me. I am very lucky to have a chance for studying at IITH.
