Picture this: “A palpitating heart which might just thud out of your chest as it bolts like Bolt, sweaty palms which won’t be able to save anyone in case they are falling off a cliff and vision that was perfect till morning but now seems to have become hypermetropic all of a sudden (you can’t see your own notes but you can see the far off faces of people, waiting to rip you apart with their laughter, or worse – boredom) and a stutter that presumably no amount of speech therapy can correct”. If you have ever suffered from stage fright, you know what I am talking about!
