If you are wondering what made the Prince Siddhartha say that, and if you have 50 min of free time, you can this documentary made by BBC. As we are all preparing ourselves to welcome this new year..here are my wishes for the new year.

I received this bunch of beautiful tulips, its one of my favorite flower, since I read the novel “Black Tulip” in my school days. In the last few days, when I was feeling very lazy to come to work, these flowers inspired me to come to my lab...Belive me Tulips, I just came to the lab to see you…
Played “Make the silver spoon stand on the nose” game with my friends both winners and the losers got chocolate cake. Well that was an international game, with 11 nation’s participation, I just realized not only my lab, but also my friends from outside my work are very international, well the gold was taken by
Adding cheery to all the above exciting events was the mid night mass, Almost half of my life, I almost lived as an catholic as I studied in catholic collage and school, Going to church was part of my life, I love the carols and to listen to the good words from the priest , I feel very positive. Mid night mass was always my dream, which got fulfilled yesterday after almost 20 years

Finally….its time to accept the reality and speak the truth… I am completing my 30 years today. I will be stepping into 31 tomorrow. I was planning to take off from my lab on my birthday, have a day for myself and spend the evening with my friends. So, my lab guys arranged for a surprise party and dinner today itself, well!! It was a real surprise….got lots of tulips and gifts. The most sentimental part was this card…wishes and signature in 11 different languages. When I turn back and have a look at my 30th year….it was very very rewarding, its in this year I fulfilled my long term desire to travel…yes...in this one year, I have travelled in 6 different countries… and I feel its just a beginning ...I remember one of the fortune teller once predicted that “my” life will start only after 30+..Yeah..I really feel like 13 at my heart!

I was surprised to see such a ‘wild’ nature, just in the heart of the city.

With bit of turbulence in a baby Lufthansa flight, we arrived in Munich yesterday, Jenny (Micha´s sister) and Jo (her boy friend) drove us trough the city and took us to their huge house, .was very happy to see every thing so spacious and big in contrast to Paris, I was able to take a deep breath and recover from the claustrophobic feeling of Paris. Today the weather was not so great, very cold with bit of rain mixed with snow, but had a nice warm host... Jo took us around the city, we did some shopping and went around the old city center. We had some hot wine , which is a speciality of Germany during winter and Christmas called Glühwein . Had lunch in a very cute Bavarian restro. Not many pic today...thats Micha and Jo enjoying hot Glühwein, in cold snowy rain.I guess the weather is better tomorrow for exploring more of Munich.
