Cheers for the power cut

If I look back 4 or 5 months time, I was really disturbed with the performance in my final year research. Not even had a clue on how to start the work. After such an embarrassing start, cant imagine how successful I am. Its like a bad nightmare, came to a cheerful ending.
Yesterday I was at my final step of the research. With months of continues effort its like a deadlock situation (better to say a starvation!). At the ultimate step, but no idea where to go next, and what to do then. I found a method to solve a problem in touching pairs of Offline handwritten characters, which consists of an algorithm to separate connected characters at junctions, and again merging them to isolate the unwanted connection. After that, no sign on how to separate them into meaningful characters. Suddenly I found my self Hey Man u just finished ur work, nothing to do other than this. The funniest thing was, I realized I already finished in the research, because of the power cut in the university premises.
Power Cut & End of the Research Hugh?????? U ppl definitely think this person is nuts! Which bugger will say a relationship between the power failure and the Research work. Do u know what happened. Because of the power cut, I didnt have to start my research at the place that I was stopped. So had ample time to think what to do next, without moving in a faulty direction (cause I already started on doing some coding on another, which I guess a kind of a foolish way). No power, no coding, so I went to sleep. When I woke up, time was 3.30Pm afternoon; I was really upset cause I wasted 4 hours without doing a thing. Suddenly I realized, hey nothing to do, Im at the end of my research, I was really happy.

Cheers for the power cut.
