All rejected!! 😫

But I kept on trying... 🙇‍♀️

Persevering!! 🐘

And I was especially keen for this paper to be accepted there, hopefully encouraging more studies in this field! 😊🙌🏞🏙

1/ The rebuilding of Japan post the horrific atom bomb, fuelled the design philosophy to create a disposable culture. India however, remained largely unaffected. (Exception: City culture is homogenous worldwide) en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Throw-awa…
