CAUTION: The following concoction is to be used only in the worst case condition when you are working, under the reporting boss’ scanning eye and yet, are overwhelmed by a ridiculously overpowering state of drowsiness (due to a heavy lunch, late nighter the previous evening, etc.,)


Ingredients: Hot water, sugar, salt, Ginger Tea packet


  1. Put the tea packet in the hot water. So you have your standard milkless tea ready which by itself is a powerful stimulant. Now for a devilish improvisation …
  2. Add a tea spoon of sugar (just to convince yourself that you are pampering yourself)
  3. Add 2 tea spoons of salt (the twist in the story!)

It will work! Apart from stimulating your nervous system, it brings in  an amazingly frustrating/annoying feeling that makes you forget sleep …

Duration of effective sleep-fighting state: ~15 hours / 60 ml cup of sleep-fighter!

Side effects: You might get so frustrated by the taste that you might want to punch th girl sitting next to you !!!
