Due being on bed for most hour of day ( and night ), I experience slight backache. It’s quite an irony to even complain that by being comfortable for so long, I develop fatigue! Yes! I get exhausted and it simply conveyed me a lesson that even excess comfort isn’t good. To be healthy, little hardship,  obtained from physical training of body, is also required. It’s almost a week that I hadn’t gone to football field. But, sometimes, I need to prioritize things.

Ok. Ok. I tell you what I’ve been doing these weeks, entirely on bed, which sounds quite long a time.

Thanks to the last midterm exams, I developed even closer intimacy with books. I could spare only few hours for sleep. That wasn’t because I am a hardworking student but since I had been procrastinating revisions of lectures, I had to rush, to make up for those wasted times, at the last moment. Fortunately, I came to discover we, human, can isolate ourselves and be with books as long as possible, provided we give equal concern and concentration; enthusiasm remains, then, out of question.

I so liked myself engrossed during those exam time that methought I would be same to those few stacks of novellas and poetry books as I was to those academic books,even after exam.

So, after the last exam, and after my roommate left for his home country to celebrate Diwali with his family, I confined myself to those promised and trusted and reliable companions. That’s also then, from when the mass bunk was officially commenced for a couple weeks.  

I don’t follow proper schedule to sleep and to wake up. I succumb to sleep when it comes and I comply with my wakeful self when energy boils within me. This improved my pace of reading also. And I believe even the mental progress is fine with me.

But the bad aspect (‘only quite bad’ to consider ) is, the body, as I already said, has become quite heavy. The previous evening, I observed myself with difficulty in catching up with playmates during soccer time.

However, despite this, I still don’t regret that I had been ( and am being ) with books. When it’s talk of my passion, books always take the first in the list.

Two days ago, I was done with the ‘Frankenstein’. How I wished I had those thoughts and imaginations of Mary Shelley.

And Now, I am with Nathaniel Hawthorne, reading his ‘The Scarlet Letter.’

As I am occupied, I bid you good night.
Sweet dream folks. J
