Dream, Dream, Dream…

Dream, Dream, Dream

Dreams Transform into thoughts

And thoughts result in action.

From Chapter – 1: The Dream and the Message, Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power within India by APJ Abdul Kalam

Ignited Minds

That’s the first book I read written by Sir Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam.

A book, which is extremely inspiring. A book, which teaches you something new, every time you read it. A book, which is my best choice as a gift to any one dear.

There is much written and said about the 11th President of our country India.  A few words aren’t enough to describe a legend, who will always be alive in the minds of many – today, tomorrow, in the distant future, and forever.

It was my dream to meet Sir APJ Abdul Kalam – a dream which now remains unfulfilled – but there are so many dreams and ways to achieve them in his wise words set down in black and white, of which I can be a part of, and fulfill those dreams envisaged but yet to be accomplished.

Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power within India examines why, given all our skills, resources and talents, we, so obviously capable of being the best, settle so often for the worst.

Ignited Minds, at the heart of it, is the belief that the people of a nation have the power, by dint of hard work, to realize their dream of a truly good life.

Ignited minds – mine is, and I believe, together We Can Do It!

Love Is Blind, Is It?

Bull Shit! How can love be blind? When in love, how could one forget applying minds and cease being logical? Not possible. Yes, it’s impossible.

Then one fine day…you meet that someone and something happens…DHAK DHAK…your heart beats faster…you start dreaming…glowing…humming…smiling for no reason…and you finally fall in love…now heart gets energetic…sings lullaby…LAL LALLA LALA LALA LAL LAL LA…there your brain starts feeling drowsy…exchange of flowers….romantic messages…candle light dinners….by now your brain is already asleep…sweet dreams…what will life be with us together…long talks….long walks…long drives…Life Is Beautiful!

You continue dreaming…start accepting flaws…adjusting…changing yourself… ignoring signals…thinking this is my world and can’t let it go off my hands…compromising…still dreaming…

And then on one another fine day…Nature interrupts…your partially dormant brain senses something’s wrong…so you decide to check…but how?…not that difficult in this Google Era…that one scrap says it all…your dream love has left you for someone else…BOOM…all those dreams shattered…now your brain is wide awake…heart just beats, and beats faster, but not thinks…brain overloaded with thoughts…too many thoughts…many voices…‘Get over it’…‘It’s just a bad phase’…‘You will survive’…and after many sessions of red eyes and sleepless nights…you draw all your strength to put a final full stop to this dream.

TRING TRING TRING…the alarm rings… and you open your eyes to yet another fine day…now that you have regained your eyesight, you start seeing things clearly…restart being logical…and your logical thinking says The Fact Love Is Blind, Is Not Bull Shit!…But Horse Shit!! Infact, Deep Shit!!!

However, after profound analysis and evaluation, and several brainwashing sessions by your dear friends, you come to a conclusion that nightmares are bad, but they still are dreams…there’s no end to dreams…and if you want to dream then you should also have the strength to overcome a nightmare… and yes, amidst all the dreams, there are some real good dreams that do turn into everlasting cherishable memories.

So dear friends, you never know when cupid strikes again…but this time cupid comes with two warnings – ‘Beware Of Nightmares’ & ‘Heart’s For Beating And Brain’s For Thinking—So Be It!’ Atleast these will save you from temporary blindness.

Whether or not cupid strikes today…keep dreaming…keep smiling…keep loving…because Life Is Very Very Very Beautiful!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
