Clear and present duty

Jaanta hoon sawaab-e-taa’at-o-zahad

Par tabeeyat idhar nahin aatee

-Ghalib


Is there anything as perfectly designed to bore you to death and make you drum your heels in defiance and explore all other avenues of temporal occupation as the inescapable knowledge of what constitutes your present duty? Dear God, grant me some subuddhi before it is too late and I am sunk in a mire of guilt.

oh the quality of sleep when exams loom... the day-dreams I fell into over open books! Never since, I tell you. Enjoy!

Written no doubt when I was enjoying my comfortable siesta? Lethal Sheetal rubs it in, the Meanster!
