Sleep Patterns:A Case Study
1.The Initiation-The lecture begins.The chap in the green tee thinks the time is ripe to have a little harmless nap.He somehow adjusts in the cramped position and goes to sleep almost instantaneously.His friends in the blue and red tees look on,almost with envy.They keenly observe the method.The intricacies,the techniques,the subtleties.Now they are thinking,"Heck,I could do that!".The transformations have begun.
2.The Propagation-By now everyone in the last bench has emulated the green tee guy.This is clearly seen in the image by the unobsctructed view that the last window gives.While the window in front of it is eclipsed by people who have yet not succumbed to this spreading effect.But it's all going to change now.The guy on the extreme left of the image is seen giving hush-hush instructions to all his fellows around him to join this wave.The exact opposite of the Mexican wave you see so often on TV.And people are listening.
3.The Steady State-The effect spreads like wild fire,even faster maybe.The consequences are self evident.Except the first benchers,who somehow have developed a permanent immunity to this extremely contagious phenomenon,everyone is in the surreal dream world.Afterall if our dreams shape the future,then we need to sleep.And we do.
All these photgraphs have been taken by an alert photographer during our lectures who has sacrificed his sleep to prepare this amazing footage.Kudos to Hitesh for doing this.
As for the guys in the green,blue and red tees,puhleeeeze dont lynch me for this!It's all for the case study.We all gain in knowledge after watching this.You are not alone,as clearly shown by the pictures.
