DayDreaming

As quoted by someone “Dreams are like stars…you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.
Before coming to DA-IICT, I used to do day-dreaming a lot.As quoted by some psychologist “Most teenagers respond to stressful events by doing something relaxing like daydreaming“. Hey, no this was not the case with me. What does a teenager day-dreams about? No idea.Ok let me recall what i dreamed about as a kid and a teenager.

As a kid, I used to imagine myself as a owner of the Bakery shop with no one stopping me from eating pastries, ice-creams,cakes etc of my shop.Then when my taste buds started loving the ‘paani-puris’ of ‘panipuriwala’(I really miss them) at my alma mater, i imagined myself to be the ‘panipuriwala’. No I was not a fat kid always eating and doing nothing.Infact i was the thinnest one among my friends and my parents used to worry a lot about my health.

As i grew and came into 7th grade and when our history teacher taught us about the Indian Independence Movement, I was so much impressed by some of the brave deeds of the ‘krantikaries’ that i imagined myself to be like one of them. Yup it seems to be funny. As you grow old u hear questions popping up by the relatives, neighbors -“What do u want to become when you are a grown-up?”.I wanted to enter the Indian Navy or Air Force.why not Indian Army? “Because I don’t like the colour of their uniform”.That was what I used to answer. But I think that was my first dream that is still kindling in my heart. As time passed, my replies changed from IAS to IFS(Indian Foreign Service and then also to Indian Forest Service) and then finally to do become a scientist or researcher. Some people suggested that for that I should first do B.Tech. Infact not B.Tech, but I should aim to go into IIT. Even after staring preparation for IIT, I didn’t know about B.Tech. I just related Engineering to IIT.

During this period, my mind and my heart was overflowing with thoughts and plans of doing something great for my country – all those things that we can think of doing – eradicating poverty, unemployment,illitercay, corruption and make India a better place and prosperous country.Noone will believe that I really saw in my dreams these imaginations of mine coming true.

And finally when I entered the world of da-iict, I found myself LOST in the crowd of 240.But here these dreams have stopped coming. At night when i go to bed, in no time I am in deep sleep. Why I don’t dream here? Is that so that when you have not entered into the real world(By real world I mean, not just confined only to your family and few friends around you but apart from that ) , you start making your own world. And when you have had a rendezvous with the reality, you stop dreaming and you realise that the dreams are not reality? But Contradictory to this we have heard great people saying that “Nothing is as real as a dream.”

  1. Enjoyed reading this post. I don’t know if it is true or not, but I have read that every normal person dreams every night–although we may not remember each dream.

    Happy days and happy dreaming and blessings to you.

  6. Dream can become reality if you want them to. If you want them badly enough. If your dreams make you happy then quit what you are doing and follow your dream. When you have your dream you live your reality. Unless it’s a bad dream then I recommend seeking help.

    Live to dream, dream to live. It can happen.
