A day with myself..

 A day with myself……..

Waking up from my sleep and rubbing my eyes, which were still itching due to lack of sleep, I just sat on the bed for a moment, curling up and thinking. Thinking nothing, as there was actually NOTHING to think about after almost 3months (3 long months!!). Looked at my phone to check the time, (of course, checking time also means checking messages, missed calls or fb/twitter notifications) it was 1.23 PM. Recalled, last night was pretty long, extending up to around 6.30 in the morning perhaps.

It all started even before the last exam got over, Ximeans, instead of concentrating on the last two end-term papers, was seen discussing about their holiday plans. Destinations ranged from their home to down south into God’s own country or even Goa. Exams finished, all were happy. No matter how their paper went, at least there was a sense of relief in many of their faces. Though their eyes looked tiring, yet there was this tinge of excitement and happiness shining bright in each of them.

What followed was a rush in the hostel, to pack up their belongings, arranging for a transport to airports, stations, etc. My job was limited to wishing people happy holiday, telling them to bring along sweets or eatables, explain my reasons of not going home (in turn coming to know that many didn’t knew where my hometown was), and the likes.

And then they all left!!

It was me and me again along with the deserted second floor in the afternoon that I woke up to, today. Instead of ruing about not going home and with thoughts of making this day productive, I strolled out of bed to catch up my lunch in the canteen ( of course after finishing my morning “chores”, or to say afternoon J ). Post lunch, it was time for me to turn into a dhobi who had to empty an almost whole cupboard of dirty clothes and clean them up too. With random songs playing on my Asus, finished them all up, including bed-sheets and blankets (the last item washed seriously deserves an applaud man, phew ‘twas difficult!).

After bathing myself without any hurry (after ages) and plugging in my earphones, kicked out to fill up my paapi pet which was starving with all the work done. Eating puffs and a coffee to follow it up, in some bakery, went down for some more Food-hunting. Came across a thela frying out bhajiyas and pakodis. Ate, and while doing so thought that this is kind of one of the rare times that I am eating from a roadside thela after coming here (Seriously, what’s wrong with me?!! I used to be a thela foodlover some era back 🙂 ).

And then this night came, (and is still not finished, until I sleep), talked with my school friends after a long time, updated and got updated, watched random videos, from cricket to dance to even saddam husein’s court proceeding (sheer joblessness 🙂 ) and then after complete exhaustion decided to type down and torture some of you who might be reading this. (you still there ? 🙂 )

Days come and days go, what matters, is how much productivity one could take out from it. In the end, maybe that’s what matters (So not LP J). There was no deadlines to meet, no exams to worry about, no one to discuss about “bad-food”, no complaints, no demand. There was nothing, just me, whom I liked. (such a narcissist :)).


Caution: This post is meant to make the blinking of your eyes go slow and induce a program called, Sleep , into your mind. So, if you know the stats, then proceed at your own risks.

Oh hello, so you have proceeded ahead by knowing that you may be bitten by the sleep bug in the course of reading this out. Good. 🙂

Anyways, let me start by asking you a small question, How many hours do you sleep on an average ?

Hmmm…so was it difficult in calculating the average hours ? I would have said, Yes!
Sleeping hours are never static, they fluctuate more than anything in our life in the world that we live in. Sometimes, we allow ourself the luxury of sleeping for some ‘appropriate’ number of prescribed hours for a civilised human being and sometimes we fail in doing so. But having said that, I’m tempted to again ask, whether there are any number of hours that, in terms of numbers, provide us with the sleep with which one would really feel as if they have really slept?  I think, it all varies with time, age, state of mind, to-do-works, etc.
With years of unscientific research, “I have came to notice that, When you sleep more. You feel like sleeping even more.”  On days, when we allow ourself to sleep, there’s no stopping us. Tiredness, boredom and habit are the key factors that tend to make our mind enter into this state of temporary rest. Our body needs it to reboot itself so as to perform various activities efficiently.
Strangely, sleep is always associated with inefficiency. When one finds students dozing in between classes or various bureaucrats sleeping or even our parliamentarians enjoying a little nap in the middle of some discussion ( we of course don’t like it when they do it in public with their eyes shut, its fine if they ‘sleep’ with their eyes wide open).  No matter what the reason might be behind their public displays of this asset called sleep, but sleeping is the culprit of the inefficiencies. Poor sleep!

Even Yawning is associated with sleep or with boredom which ultimately paves way for the former. Leaving aside the fact, that they can even be spread as part of the nexus of watching others doing the same. ( picture YAWNING and you may have it too. Think!).
No matter what is the preference people give it. Possession of this wonderful asset is very much a necessity for our well being. A cozy bed with a soft pillow, an optimum temperature, a place, sufficient time and a cool and stable mind is what is required to retain the asset of sleeping without any difficulty. Our body and our mind, both needs us to help provide ourselves the possession of it.

So, sleep my friend as much as the world allows you to. It sure is the reflection of your life. A good sleep will help in solving all your problems when you wake up.

Hope you have a sound sleep 😉
