Of larks, owls and nightouts

We love dawn. Early mornings. 2 am to 6 am. The time when owls haunt, ghosts supposedly move, when even burglars snooze off. The time when normal people are supposed to reach the seventh heaven where everything is possible. The time people in B-schools love for reasons unknown and unstated.

Ofcourse, we've proved that we are not a part of the sane crowd. That's the first qualification for cracking CAT. We're also capable of random insane meaningless chatter whenever needed. That's how we made it into an IIM.

If only people read faces and statements!

A friend of mine asked: What time do you sleep?
I retorted: Generally at 4 to 4.30 am, with occasional nightouts.

I didn't lie. But I didn't state the complete truth either. I slept between 4 and 6 pm in the evening, and I'm about to get a comfortable sleep between 5 and 9 in the morning. Who cares about a morning bath anyway? In all probabilities, the neighbor too is going to stink. Be a Roman in Rome.

Now, don't ask me if we all love this schedule. No one really knows. Someone in a B-school sometime back started saying that staying awake late into the night is bliss. The rest of crowd followed for fear of contradicting the statement and fear of staying out of the crowd. Slowly, everyone forgot what their daddies taught during school days - "To maintain health, sleep between 10 pm to 6 am". Maybe everyone's grown up, and rational thought process has set in. The real question is whether rationality has set in or irrationality has set in. Its a really difficult question to answer.

Whatever the reason, no one knows why sleepless nights are fun. No one really knows why nightlife is better than daytime. Science contradicts popular thought. Now that we've completed school, why care about Science? Even in school, it was a difficult subject to handle.

End of days and years, its generally spoken of that nightlife is fun. I'll join the gang. I'm no different you see.
