- Each people are very different in perceiving science and their work.
- Give them enough space and time to make them feel comfortable with their work
- Never try to force things out of them.
- Understanding and to have a feel for the work is more important in science.
I copied that quote from a site, which takes about the commonality of 21 different religions in the world. They give this as a golden rule of Reciprocity. Learning such things is very easy, but lucky are the people who get a condition when they can put things into practice, most of the time in practice, we realize that our actions are very far from the book knowledge.

First my stress about this ‘not traveling phase’ – Friday, my boss came and asked me if I want to present my results in a ‘EU meeting in Germany, which means just two weeks from now, I will be having a weekend break Hamburg, after my presentation in Kiel!
Second stress – my laptop, again my boss volunteered to fix it at the lab’s cost, and also my family is ready to gift me a new one. so right now, with an external hard disk and a book stand to support my ‘old’ laptop, I am think about which option, I should go for.
Third stress – My bike, seeing a chatter box so silent in the lab, my friend in lab, Marc came and asked me the reason. Well! I didn’t know where to start, as there was solution for the other problems in the vicinity, I started with the bike and he started laughing, No! He is not a person who laughs at others problems, for him handling bike and fixing its problems is a childhood hobby it seems, so he was just excited to solve this new challenge, with his magic hands took out the broken part from lock and opened the bike for me!
Fourth stress – my tea cup, with a sign of relief from the above stresses I was in a better sprit to go buy a new tea cup, in my favorite Le Palais des Thés , tea shop. Even though its bit far from my house, I like to go there, just for very friendly and warm Indo-British shop assistant, and for the first time, we started talking about things other than tea and I was very happy to know that even she felt the same warmth between us and she came up with a reason that the yoga and meditation which we both do made our ‘aura’ to communicate deeper, even though we were just talking about tea verbally. Now at the very small cost of my tea cup I got a spritual friend and company to do yoga during the weekend.
And today morning as I woke up with the lighter mind, which was cheered up by the comment from my writer friend Lili, and her lovely words and the fact that its her first comment in my blog cheering up my day! lucky are the people, who have shoulders to cry as they wait for the universe to get back to equilibrium, every tears I shed makes me feel how lucky I am! Gaia Hypothesis works!

We might have noticed in our daily life, sometimes we keep spilling water again and again the whole day, or we may be annoyed by all the know and unknown people we meet on a 'bad' day! With my naive knowledge on Gaia hypothesis, I guess we can take such incidents as a proof of this hypothesis. Well! if I apply Gaia hypothesis in my life, I am sure,right now I am not in equilibrium. I broke two of my favourite things in the last two days! my Laptop and my Tea cup! Wishing that I soon reach the equilibrium of 'constructive phase'!This hypothesis was named after the Greek goddess Gaia, let me wait and see how long it takes for Gaia to get me back to my constructive phase! yes! you are right! that's the picture of Gaia to whom I dedicate this little prayer!

Ok..Micha is going to New York, what about a USA trip by end of this month? I love traveling with Micha, but…. no! At this point I can’t afford it…the French government just caught me for not paying taxes, yes! Even poor students should pay taxes; I am paying two year taxes with some penalty, which means I lost a decent part of my savings…!
Well! Still it’s not that bad…. I can afford a trip in Europe! I just got a mail from my friend, she is defending her thesis, in Lausanne. Even though I was bit saturated with Switzerland with my long summer stay there (It was like eating tons of chocolates in a day), I can go to meet my friend, and specially her cute little son! But No! I can’t do that…again French government is the reason. I still didn’t get my work permit renewed, which means I can’t cross the border, atleast till the middle of this month.
What about a weekend break within France? Or just wait and have an exciting bit longer break in April away from France!!! The second seems to be a better option.
