Turning and turning in the widening gyre

August 25, 2014

I was awake till late last night. It was about 2 o’clock. I was not feeling sleepy. I had already had a good sleep in the afternoon – it was a Sunday. Not feeling sleepy, I was playing with phone, checking statuses here and there. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, I started feeling my own heartbeats. It was not pounding, but a flutter, thready rhythm. Everything started seeming hollow. It felt like I am going to crumble within myself. It was a feeling like – when you take terbutaline syrup and your heart goes shallow. The feeling was not much pronounced. It was not impossible to ignore, only if I could fall asleep.

Sleep was elusive. I used my time-tested somniferous techniques; they help for sure. I had good sleep, until morning, when nightmarish dreams started. I was trying to catch a train, caught the door bar, my hand slipped and I fell on the platform. The guard noted and slowed down the train, then I caught it. Some other incident. I was at some local station. Suddenly, there was smoke coming from everywhere. People started running haywire fearing a terrorist attack. I too ran away and caught some local, which swiftly moved out of the station. Later I noted the train was going to Karjat, not where I wanted to go.

Phone rang out of nowhere. Relieved, I woke up.

It was a much-needed holiday–to replete the energy lost in the past hectic week, and to gather up some energy for the more hectic one to come! Last week of the month, to get as much as possible out of it.

Just watched Balgandharva! Loved to watch it, and mostly the songs in it! Our generation has not seen Gandharva, but he must be looking as he looks in the movie! Loved the movie, and yeah, I must borrow heart, at least for a while, to get those feelings! Idealism should be checked with practicality, isn’t it? But we can’t, and should not, judge people from our standards. We never know what it takes to be in their shoes!

Anyways, I was thinking about getting out for a little walk, but now it’s about 10:20, and I think I should try and get some seven or eight hours sleep!!

N.B. This is an old post I wrote two days ago, was saved in my Outlook drafts, never mind!!
