midnight company

The exam is only a fortnight away. and so even I'm studying!! and I'm spending some sleepless nights (which means I'm having some days with loads of sleep) to combat with the taxonomy, pteridophyta, gymnosperms and other stuff of the same genre.

last night, around 2 am, I was fighting with my second attack of forget-study-let's-sleep-now syndrome. So I made myself a cup of strong black coffee, and with a cigarette I went to the terrace. I was welcomed by a heavenly cool breeze, which had as much stimulant effect as the coffee.
Then I tried to see if anyone else is sleepless. I found some lit rooms of the nearby houses. someone was watching television in a room. about others I didn't know. but then I found something which I liked instantaneously. the pond behind our houses was awake. the road beside the pond was awake. so was a small temple beside the pond. then I looked into the heaven. the stars were awake with me. and somehow, I felt . I'm not alone.
and I spend the longest sleepless night.
