Seeking Solid Solitude

My institute is located in an isolated corner of Chandigarh. It has big trees on the boundary such that hardly any sound from outside penetrates the campus. Inside, Orkut, Facebook, Twitter are all inaccessible.
I must concentrate on science. I must concentrate on my work.
And then there are days when I’m lost in what I do and I love what I work on and crazy ideas bombard me from all sides and I’d never trade my work for anything but such days are few and far in between. I think they should send me inside a dungeon to practice science; I need more isolation from this crazy world.
