BullDOZER

It is a well known fact that I used to sleep for an average of 12-13 hours during the holidays between engineering and b school. I hardly ever left my room and my bed was HEAVEN ON EARTH. That is primarily the reason that I have become chubbier in the last few months. Sleep is a very important part of the day, especially for the people who are hyperactive during the day. We need to rest our body and mind.

Now here at NITIE, life is falling into a routine. I sleep late, but have to wake up by 7:30 to get to class in time after bathing and breakfast. I've been managing to do accomplish that myself, otherwise my roomie comes to the rescue and wakes me up. So I'm managing. But to compensate, i'm sleeping in the classes also. So much so that, I'm automatically attracted to the seats near the window. The only colours we can see on campus are Grey and Green. The grey of the clouds and the incessant rains which never seem to stop and the green of the flora on campus.

Amidst all the work, the movies, the latenights and some sleep, I hit upon an idea which might come into implementation someday when we are dead and gone. The idea shall be explained as follows.

Have you heard of Carbon Offsets, Carbon Trading etc ? For those who haven't, let me elucidate. Essentially, companies which have high amounts of carbon emissions pay other companies to cut down on their carbon emissions so as to offset their high amounts to maintain a constant amount in the atmosphere. This is used to reduce pollution considerably.

So my idea is to have Sleep offsets, we should have assistants or people who we can pay to work for us, just the way we would, when we sleep. This would result in the same amount of productivity while we enjoyed our beauty sleep. It would be even better if someone could develop robots with similar mental frameworks for specific individuals. The best alternative would be to have clones.

Maybe someday, when I'm in my eternal slumber, someone who has read this blog would develop something amazing such as this. With that optimistic message, I shall go sleep now.

Er.. What about attacking it from the other direction. May be we dont need 12 to 13 hours of sleep and 6 or 7 will do. May be if we train our body to this routine we might save money and get more out of life. Time saved is Life earned. So dont waste it by sleepin excessively :P
