As I said in other comments before, I was apprehensive if I could deal with initial frustration due to subconscious comparison of how easy life was with python. I asked myself If I would trip off; will I be able to cope up; will my brain be malleable enough or get hardened against the higher cognitive load C poses comparing to python, etc. with no good answers. Hence this question.
Every other commenter echo with your respected opinion and I appreciate your well explained suggestion. I just needed my answers through other's experiences to the above questions.
I will be "starting out with python"(amazon<dot>com/dp/0134444329).
