Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. But it also made you uncool. The (K)night riders had all the fun, despite all thats been written.

Try to change I did. Why? You see, mornings are uncool. The night it is when all the fun happens. "Did you check out that movie last night" or "How about Dandia tonight" is a far more hopeful conversation than a "How about seeing me at 5.30 am?" Besides nothing worth noting is open in the morning - other than doodhwallahs and newspaper delivery guys. There was no study partner who would want to wake up at the unearthly hour of 4 am. No parties begin at 5 am - ever. Nope. Even the first possible show is at a hopeless 9 am - and populated with movies even the theatre owners would not like to see. No hope even at work. Showing up early means nothing - there is nobody who sees you arrive, unlike the aura of staying back of late. Everybody sees you hard at work - can't beat that.
But my experiment to change was a disaster. I could not stay awake - not for studies, not for the cricket world cup, not for an impression on the boss. The second shows I went to, ended with me being woken up at the end of the movie. The gaming nights, inevitably saw me losing even as the nights just began - I almost began to use it as an excuse for lousy pictionary skills.
But I did have my moments of triumph. Thanks to the spherical world, I watched all the matches in Australia and New Zealand. I also caught sight of the odd comet that made its appearance at around 5 am.
If you ask me, 5.30 am is the best time of the day. People may change, but for me, the morning it is, however uncool.
