Early Life at 5am

Today I reported to office at 5:30am. I was the first one to step into the office. I have mistaken the flight timing. There was no one except me, and it makes me feel great. The serenity and tranquility of the surrounding and freshness really lured me to wake up early. I realized, I always wanna make sumpin' of it. Having no other agendas punched on my memory scroll, I chanted my normal prayers for a while, then, wanted to know the updates of friends and acquaintances virtually through facebook. So, I pressed the power button, but no signal, the CPU remained calm and cool. I tried with other computers but with no different response. I was confused and thought that somebody might have locked it from some master switch somewhere. I peeped around all nooks and corners to rectify the electrical faults. I was too confident to mend any faults. I spent nearly around 10 minutes but could not find anything that I could rectify. At last, I went to our caretaker and asked about the switches. He joined me and checked and instantly, he opened the Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB), calmly put back the tripped the switch. The power was restored. He also advised me to first check MCB whenever there is an electrical abnormalities.....ha ha ha......... I said thank you and furtively did not say that I was an electrical engineering graduate. I actually overlooked it. I was searching for bigger problems than that. It is our tendency to think about only bigger and complex things in the lieu of smaller yet important ingredients of our day-to-day lives. 
I then, started surfing the net. After few minutes I came across the news about  bomb blast in Phuntsholing in BBS website. Thank god; there were no casualties. I sincerely wish for more peaceful with no more blasts in our college vicinity. It is second time as far as I am concerned. On positive interpretation, it is sometimes good to have one or two without serious casualties. It alarms us and our security personnel and keep us ever ready to pounce back on them.
