Inside the building on the ground floor, I am met by about twenty researchers toasting the new year with red wine and joy. I give my card to the Womens Japanese geisha V Neck T Shirt tee who rises to greet me, and after a second am handed a glass of wine and a few other folks come by to talk with me. I spend the next 45 minutes talking happily to one of the researchers there, and then the first fellow, the director of the institute, brings me to his office and we talk about a lecture I agree to give at the end of the month. I am pleased and head to seek out the director of international programs, and spend another lovely time talking with him in the administration building talking about the challenges of developing a university. He explains that hiring me may not be easy—that a new hire needs to be the result of the regular process of the university getting governmental approval to add a new position, and then must go through the regular process of advertising for candidates. I talk of the awful system now in India where a large sum of money needs to be paid by the applicant to get a position, and suggest that I prefer a normal procedure. It keeps the university functioning well. We have a good time talking.
