The mind has this amazing ability that it can make you do some things without really letting you know that you did it. After what seemed a second she could feel some kind of familiar sound. She couldn’t really concentrate coz her mind was completely ignoring it. But it was becoming louder and louder gradually and finally it penetrated her sleep.

Reaching for her bag she pulled out her Ipod; plugged in the headphones and selected the genius’s ‘Paper planes’ and closed her eyes thus closing the doors to this world and entering that magical peace. When she opened her eyes and got down, the mind winked at her and said – let’s go for it!
