A dream within a dream!!
So there is a power cut at home, and hence nothing at all to do. Three hours are spent watching a movie on the laptop, and then some more time reading. Sleep then descends upon me sometime in the early afternoon. And a nice dreamless sleep (or siesta) it was too. I don't know how much time passes this way. Suddenly, I'm wide awake.
Its dark outside. The stray dogs, who rule the Bangalore streets once the sun sets, are exercising their vocal chords. Damn, I overslept, I think and get up to turn on the lights. Flick. Still dark. What the... is it still a power cut? I start walking out of the room to check on the main switch. My legs feel like lead. My view feels like a camera lens. Panning out. Zooming out. Defocusing. I feel the air going out of my lungs. I fall, more of a free fall than a crash. Its like a balloon deflating. The lens view shows the ground coming closer. And closer. And closer. I am on the ground now, a balloon with no air in it. I try to move. All I can do is twitch a little. I lie there for a few minutes. And then I open my eyes. I'm in bed. And its still dark. I pinch myself. And feel myself waking up again. And its just 3PM. Bright outside. I hope this is reality!!
