There was a time when we used to sleep under the sky in summers. The moon spread its heavenly cool light. The Night Queen flowers bloomed to radiate its fragrance till you could smell it into the far corners of our home.
It used to be so pleasant sleeping outside. It felt so soothing. The night sky shimmered with stars. When you woke up, you felt refreshed. It wasn’t like sleeping in a stuffy room, where you woke up still feeling tired.
Then people stopped sleeping outside. The world became a scary place. Now people fear someone will sneak over their boundary walls, and cause them harm.
Now no one sleeps outside anymore.
