Stupor
(n) state of being incapable of sensing or understanding anything, mental numbness. Ali Baba had seen that the cave in front of him had opened when the dacoits had shouted 'Khulja Simsim.' The dacoits were long gone now and he felt tempted to get into the cave himself. "Khulja Simsim!" He nervously ordered and, the cave opened! He went inside and was stupefied to see mountains of gold and diamonds all around. His mind became numb at the sight of so much wealth. Tia had invited her friend Rahul to have dinner with her parents. In the middle of the meal, Tia cleared her throat and in a serious, shaking voice said, "Mama, Papa, I want to tell you something. Rahul is not my friend. We married in court this week." There was a stupefied silence. A spoonful of curd and a glass of water froze in mid-air as the old man and the woman who held them were paralyzed with shock. She lived in the stupor of drugs. Devdas spent his last years in the stupor of drink.
