There are burgeoning signs of this more human correction. In 2012, there were, for example, around 20 million yoga practitioners in the U.S., according to a survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs. By 2016, the number had almost doubled. Mindfulness, at the same time, has become a corporate catchword for many and a new form of sanity for others. It’s also hard to explain, it seems to me, the sudden explosion of interest in and tolerance of cannabis in the past 15 years without factoring in the intensifying digital climate. Weed is a form of self-medication for an era of mass distraction, providing a quick and easy path to mellowed contemplation in a world where the ample space and time necessary for it are under siege.
The only place like it was the library, and the silence there also pointed to something beyond it — to the learning that required time and patience, to the pursuit of truth that left practical life behind. Like the moment of silence we sometimes honor in the wake of a tragedy, the act of not speaking signals that we are responding to something deeper than the quotidian, something more profound than words can fully express. I vividly recall when the AIDS Memorial Quilt was first laid out on the Mall in Washington in 1987. A huge crowd had gathered, drifts of hundreds of chattering, animated people walking in waves onto the scene. But the closer they got, and the more they absorbed the landscape of unimaginably raw grief, their voices petered out, and a great emptiness filled the air. This is different, the silence seemed to say. This is not our ordinary life.
The complicity of characters and the style of the novel is what I would like to emphasize most about the novel, as well as the fact that The Time is Night represents an outstanding social awareness of the author.
Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye Holden from "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D Salinger and Christopher from "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon are both two very interesting first person narrators in many different ways.

I started reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon, in the very beginning of summer, savoring the relaxation and leisure of reading on my own time.
A year before, like many addicts, I had sensed a personal crash coming. For a decade and a half, I’d been a web obsessive, publishing blog posts multiple times a day, seven days a week, and ultimately corralling a team that curated the web every 20 minutes during peak hours. Each morning began with a full immersion in the stream of internet consciousness and news, jumping from site to site, tweet to tweet, breaking news story to hottest take, scanning countless images and videos, catching up with multiple memes. Throughout the day, I’d cough up an insight or an argument or a joke about what had just occurred or what was happening right now. And at times, as events took over, I’d spend weeks manically grabbing every tiny scrap of a developing story in order to fuse them into a narrative in real time. I was in an unending dialogue with readers who were caviling, praising, booing, correcting. My brain had never been so occupied so insistently by so many different subjects and in so public a way for so long.
In the curious incident of the dog in the night time Christopher solves many of his problems by screaming, as a pose to Victor Frankenstein dealing with his problems by using his brain and attempting to find a solution.
Through an investigative analysis, "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night" and "After a Time" were proven to be comparable in almost every aspect in poetry, such as structure, rhyme scheme, and meter....
Tiger has strong muscular body of powerful froe limbs with a large round head and a long tail. Its tail helps him to maintain balance while running to catch a prey.

It hunts mostly in the early morning and evening. Tiger is found mainly in two colours, first is brown or yellowish with black strips on whole body and second is white with black strips.

White tiger is the subspecies of Bengal tiger with the regular black strips but the colour of its eyes is blue.

One of the major gothic themes expressed in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s writings is his use of night time settings.
