Nessun Dorma

No one shall sleep
Let no one sleep
May no one sleep
so i was warned that my post titles would change one of these days. well.
am up. its almost 1.30am. saturday night. so whats new? for starters, i am studying and thats why i am up. not out drinking at my favorite bar. geek. hey raam. tired. just made me a cuppa strong black coffee. listening to Nessun Dorma.
studied for the shortest time. crammed in so much into my little head. wow. ravi verma's civilizational project mixed with nayaka-nayika in radha krishan paintings of pahadi school muddled up with bibhatsa rasa with some irrelavant garnish of indo-sarcenic architecture. i am so tired. i havent the energy. so much for my psued course. thank god i payed a little attention to the old foggies in class. else i wouldnt have been able to make head or tale of anything last minute. not that it makes much sense right now. did i mentioned i am tired. but also immensely happy. something mega nice happened. and studying makes me feel good. i feel a little clever if i can understand things. hehe. and sometimes, good things happen to good people. hehe. yay!
replaying the piece. its nice though i dont understand the nuances. someday i shall. till then i am not sahridaya with it, but in my sthayi bhava i am keep to transcend to ananda. yes, i write nonsense. but do others write any sense. i feel like writing rubbish. so many people write rubbish. sometimes they win bookers for it too.
from next week i wish i can say, 'thank god its friday'. no more saturday class. yay! planned my new painting in my head. worked out. want to begin on monday night. nocturnal activity. hehe. yay! am happy and tired. yes, i know i am repeating it. in literature, repitition is a figure of speech, ok?
should go to sleep. getting all conked. hehe. going to get up at 6am and study some more. get reference visuals, scan and print them. *sigh* and then to much hated kalina. *hey raam wala sigh* to write the damn paper. and then lunch with my friends. looking forward to it. hope thay all come. then for sorbet with M. my favorite student? yup, her only. then home to get dressed for the date. yay! am happy. and tired.
current colour: silver white of the quiescent moon
current mood :'Ennis, riding against the wind back to the sheep in the treacherous, drunken light, thought he'd never had such a good time, felt he could paw the white out of the moon'.
Nessun dorma" is an aria from the final Act of Giacomo Puccini's opera Turandot. The aria, whose title translates from Italian as "Let no one sleep", follows the proclamation by the Princess Turandot that no-one shall sleep: they shall all spend the night attempting to find out the name of the unknown prince, Calaf, who has set the challenge. Calaf sings, indicating his certainty that their effort will be in vain.

i love nessun dorma. i love love it. you get points for that.
so much for my psued course

*laughing uncontrollably*
Oh since when did you get into Opera? You must educate me - and this isn't an empty request meant for the blogger world. It carries into the real, tangible world as well.
casa - what now? grrrr.

geets - let me educate myself. andu shall be next. i promise.
