Dreams: September 2006


Dreams are answers
       to questions
       we haven't yet
       figured out
       how to ask.

Zara ruk ke...

I liked this one...

Shaher ki es daud me daud ke karna kya hai?
Jab yehi jeena hai dosto to phir marna kya hai?

Paheli barish me train late hone ki fikr hai
Bhul gaye bhigte hue tahelna kya hai?

Serials ke kirdaaro ka saara haal hai malum
par maa ka haal puchhne ki fursat kise hai?

Ab ret pe nange pao tahelte kyu nahi?
108 hai chanel phir dil bahelte kyu nahi?

Internet ki duniya ke to touch me hai,
lekin pados me kon raheta hai jaante tak nahi.

Mobile, Landline sab ki bharmaar hai,
Lekin jigri dost tak pahuche aise taar kaha hai?

Kab dubte hue suraj ko dekha tha yaad hai?
Kab jaana tha shaam ka woh banana kya hai?

To Dosto Shaher ki es daud me daud ke karna kya hai
Jab yahi jeena hai to phir Marna kya hai?

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished.
That will be the beginning.

Sometimes when we’re waiting for God to speak,
He’s waiting for us to listen.

Fantasizing Death

Thursday, September 07, 2006
We all fantasize about life's events... who ever fanasizes about death? For mortal beings, including myself, death is an unspoken of territory... the least being a topic of fantasy.

However, the other day, while I was musing something - or was it the fluttering pages of orbituary infront of me ... whatever, but I started imagining about a funeral... "my" funeral. And in my imagination, I was seeing people who came to pay me the last visit.

Suddenly, it got me thinking, rather fantasizing about my death. And I started to validate the process with a renewed interest.

What does one do when one dreams, and plans ... life after 5 years / 10 years...? The desire to fulfill ones dreams is a great motivator. I started fantasizing my death and some of the things that will be associated with me during my last journey, with probably similar thoughts.

The motivation was the desire to make those fantasies come true and the requirement was the efforts I put in, the passion with which I pursue and the belief I have in them; to fulfill the fantasy.

So, what do i fanatasize about... Many things, like people present at my funeral (from celebrities, leaders... to no one), people remembering me for, who will I die as (a mother, a wife, a celibrity, ..... a 'no one') etc.

Now you see, If I feel strongly about my fantasy, I have a life time to make it come true ! I had a quote quite close to my heart "Dare to Dream and Dream to Dare". My fantasies about death has given me a much higher leap... and now I believe, if I have a fantasy, I am obliged to the nature, to God ... to myself, to start working for it... right away.

I also fantasize my orbituary - "Fulfilled Fantasies"
