But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

Träume

"Appa,i saw a dream yday!"

"HUH!not the least for a surprise!!Now whats it this time?"

For all those who don't know me,i'm one heck of a dreamer..not the usual kind of a day-dreamer,but there wouldn't be a single night spent without a trail of dreams..sometimes sequels,sometimes random..sometimes intuitive..sometimes even close to clairvoyance..sometimes just another of those weird ones..but most of the times, i end up with stuffs good enough for a laugh or a guffaw..

There was this night,when i woke up sweating and panting,blanched by a dream,me idling around on a holiday,which i later found out to be my pro-evaluation eve when a friend rings up enquiringly,and that was when i realised that all the tools were yet to be manufactured,my ppt,my reports..huh!!I started fainting,blood oozing out of my face,and mouth longing for a drop of water..and that was when I suddenly jolted out of my bed..I started rubbing my eyes so hard to get back to normalcy just to remember that all those evaluations shits were long done!..I slept off blissfully the rest of the night..Getting back to college,much to my surprise,our pro-results were published the same day!

There was this incident when i dreamt of a friend shaving his head completely,when in a couple of days he pops with his head mowed perfectly to be compared to a cricket ground..

Date with madhavan(sure,he's not an enticement any more! :P),letter from Hrithik,were all those queer impossible ones which blazed in my school days..

"I dreamt of a day when i was forcibly put into a burkha,with all those guns laid against my head..there were bomb blasts and cries of pain everywhere..there was none around who i could recognize!I was thirsty and hungry,but there was absolutely nothing..sheer squalor..I was totally alone,dismayed thoroughly!! :O "

"OMG!! It's the Talibans this time????? You got nothing better to dream??Anyhow,I'm saved of those expenses for opera tickets!"

Well its always nice to have a parallel world to go into while u slumber away!! Irrespective of how crazy the dream might be....there is nothing like a nocturnal adventure!!

ramya said...

god! i dream a lot too!
before my geography exam, i dreamt that i didnt write any of my answers in my exam and slept off. I didnt reasile that i didnt write anything till i reached my home, in my dream.
Also, I sometimes recite my portions when i am extra tensed before exams. Huh! I am so silly!
Thanks for the youngest and the PRETTIEST thing you wrote about me with those awards! GOD! I am so overwhelmed! *blushes*

xclnt quote from bapu. your colour scheme is too bright.. i think something which is more soothing will be better

Gayathri said...

@Salil.. :)

anyway,thanks for dropping by :)

@Thousif,man,it's so damn overwhelming to see that people do notice my absence.. thanks :)..
I'm running a way ahead of my broadband usage limit..so last time when i peeped into ur blog,i was shocked to see the ipod in it which would eat up a lot of my bandwidth,and i suddenly retraced my path..on june 1st,pakka,i'll be there..

@aj,i loved the peace in this template..and it's just been a few weeks since i resorted to this..so i'll have to hold on a few more days before i go for another change..
anyway,thanks for visiting..

varunshridhar said...

lol...deja vu's of a kind!
well put.
and, I have been reading ur other posts as well, what's with the 'khuda hafiz'? why not a usual 'adios' or 'ciao' or something on those lines. well, if you didn't wish to do it the conventional way, there are always words in Tamizh or Hindi. I was wondering y this? just out of curiosity, sorry if I shouldn't have asked.
Cheers

Gayathri said...

@varun,khuda hafiz brought a me feeling of warmth inside everytime i heard that.i kinda developed the craze for it from a novel..
and,i hadnt seen anyone else having this tag as well..so thought it would be quite different in the lot.. :)

Som said...
