Just an update

Hi guys and gals who are still hanging around,

I am on a hiatus (kind of). i am writing several new papers and the work is kinda hard. I will check in soon for good. Until then, enjoy life while you are alive.

By the way;

Last year was sort of a big splash maker. I finally found a solution to the problem that I was working on for fourteen years. I finally figured out a way to cure financial disability (poverty) for a lot of people.  I will be launching my first company very soon. Wish you all a very happy (belated) new year.

I have finally reached the eccentricity that characterizes many good scientist on the screens. laughs !


The Truth will out

The hurricane Sandy had made the world, especially USA and China stand up and acknowledge what the scientists have been trying to tell people for a long time.


My heart goes out to the people who are affected by this natural disaster; I however, also have to acknowledge that the people have to recognize what their politicians are not trying to see for decades; the effects of brutalizing and preying upon dwindling natural resources.

The nature is fighting back. Just take a look around all the major natural disasters in the last decade; The devastating Tsunamis in the eastern counties the damaging earthquakes, the floods in Europe and a spate of hurricanes  in the USA.

We need to sit up and adapt fast or we will we wiped out from the surface of the earth due to our own follies and denial of harsh realities. Open to interpretation!

The upside down wonderland

What happens when the world suddenly stops turning, pauses and reverses, turning in the opposite directions. That is what I am feeling when I was writing the post for today. Last few days have been so chaotic and at the same time rewarding.

I finally figured out a way to ignore the less esteemed but extremely irritating colleagues.

I got a new office; 🙂

It is much cooler and much better equipped other side of the building. It is also much quieter and provides a serene view and lots of sunshine; a rare commodity in the creeping cold.

It is where I am going to be writing my doctoral thesis and enjoying super espresso’ on a personal coffee machine. For a coffee addict it is a heaven away from home.

Feeling on top of the world. The world is a shiny red button!


The world needs more heroes! Open Season

Heroes are the people who sacrifice themselves for the greater cause. Those people who dream and get visions of a great future and work hard to bring them into present reality; Who suspend their own personal gratifications to bring smile to others’ people’ faces. We still have many social problems but where have our great heroes gone?

The past century saw great battles in the world. It also saw the rise of many historical people and new scientific inventions. Still, the greatest people of that era are slowly dying off and there are not many people charismatic enough to take their places. Do people do not dream enough these days? Where are those leaders of men and women who can lead the world into a new vision! Open session for the names ……………….

You are free to nominate anybody…………..

The Annoying Meddler

Have you ever encountered someone, who is an annoying meddler. The department politics may sometime want to make you mad enough, to want to throttle that annoying colleague; maybe that friend of your boss who secretly hates your existence and want to pin any tiny mistake on you, in order to get you in trouble. A happen to have one right in my department.

Many people have their bosses pet as their nemesis; mine just happens  to be Professor who hates my guts (due to my sheer ability to switch Departments for my PhD. I have masters in A and then I switched to B for my doctorate which horrified her). She held onto that long grudge despite personally never interacting with me. She is a woman of well…..limited mind, debatable skills…..and a number of minions at her disposal who are eager to harass me at their convenience.

Science departments are still an autocracy in themselves, basically run like little dictatorship and there is only so much that I can do to counter her considering that my thesis is yet to be submitted. Can’t wait for the day I can leave this place. Open to interpretation!

How much is too thin and just enough beautiful

It has been too often pointed out to me that I am a fat person. ergo, I should diet. The advice comes from well meaning professors, fellow researchers, cleaning staff and strangers in the cafe you don’t know…… Weird. No, apparently this is how a normal day passes for me and other women who are out there living their lives and even slightly overweight. The moment someone sees them they are labelled as fat and therefore unattractive.Then again, I exercise when I can and simply let the remarks slide.

Here is the shocker! I choose to be Fat (I am just the side of over weight and I think I offend most people when I insist on being happy just the way I am). Raised eyebrows, here they come.

The reason; I cannot read or work, if I am hungry. I work sometimes 20 hours a day and the need to maintain focus in scientific field is pretty high or I could make costly mistakes. The instruments I need to work with cost thousand of dollars.

So, I do not diet. That is a shocker to most people who cannot fathom how can I not want to be ‘Slim and Healthy’.

The pressure to be thin grows every day on women, girls and teenagers (especially by peer groups in schools and universities), as fashion magazines continue with ads featuring thin models with size zero clothes, health magazines scream bloody murder every other day saying fat is bad etc.

FACTS: Fat is stored food in a body warding off starvation if encountered. There has been a lot of ‘studies’ on fat sponsored by slim pill companies which are then cited by magazines and other news media creating an environment where every plus sized woman is subtly harassed, pitied or sneered at.

Fact: The idea of beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Different societies have different ideas on beauty, fertility or attractiveness to opposite sex.

I am an independent enlightened woman who chooses to ignore all the well meaning advice and malicious barbs. Being a woman of science, does has its advantages.

What concerns me, is that the well meaning concerns can be handled well, by a grown woman; it may very well harm a child or teenager who has to deal with the societal pressures to conform to a certain idea of body image or beauty. Failure to get that size zero figure and spotless face causes many panic attacks around the world everyday. Open to interpretation!


The importance of being a Dreamer

People cannot help the conditions that they are born in. Most people make their peace with it. Some don’t. Those people change the world.

It is not important what you have, whether you are living in utter poverty or rolling in money. What is more important is, what do you dream of at the night? What do you aspire to, in the day? It is those two things, which push or pull you in the directions you want to go.

The importance of our dreams is, in the way we look at the world. The glass  may be half full for some and half empty for the others. For those whose glass is half empty, take heart because you can still muster the courage to push the world upside down and the glass will be half full again.

A happy pocketful of dreams for all of you! 🙂
