Dreams, Do they really mean anything..

Posted in Chit-Chat,Free thoughts by dearestfriend on March 28, 2007

Now this is rather curious of me, Wondering, What dreams really mean..
We often confuse dreams with ambitions in literal sense. When We say.. Continue dreaming. If you are not dreaming, you are not living…If you can dream, you can do it.. Etc etc..
But when we say dream, don’t we really mean ambition here..
I have nothing against ambition. Only one composed thought I have for it.
” It should never govern you. You should be able to make it work for you. ”
I have always seen it other way around.


One of Freud’s more important discoveries is that emotions buried in the unconscious surface in disguised form during dreaming, and that the remembered fragments of dreams can help uncover the buried feelings.

Above is brief message about dreams from Sigmund Freud. I don’t believe in any school of philosophy much. Because I believe not following one, gives you liberty to evaluate others. Clever of me 😉

I don’t know If I can apply above to all my dreams. Last night I saw a very amusing dream. Though I don’t think it’s some kindda buried emotion or anything.,
I saw my family is travelling to somewhere with 4 infant kids.. Whole of the dream, I dint find it important to know, whom kids belonged to. They seemed real chubby cute kids.. They kept whole family busy. So I am assuming they would belong to us in some way.. When I got up in morning, I was wondering where the crowd has gone 🙂

Well, I have this bad habit of remembering my dreams. Now I have grown to realize, It ‘s good to forget something. I would pen some memorable dreams I have had and still remember them.

– I somehow got power to fly. I would just take 2-3 long steps and start flying 🙂 Sounds cool , right. But I do remember it was very nice feeling being in air.

– I am some dead queen or king in last birth. And I suddenly remember my hidden treasure. I don’t know where I tracked to, but I really went to a place where i saw huge boxes of wealth..

– This is very weird .. But it did happen. I saw some unknown people in dream. And in few weeks time I did came across those people in my day to day life.

– A very beautiful home, Which looks something like these Hollywood celebrities own. The catch is I was dancing in the house. So obviously it belonged to me 🙂

These are few dreams which I have fondly remembered. Rest bad ones.. I choose to forget.. If you feel like, you can share any sweet dream you remember fondly too..

When my professor fell off :-)

Posted in Chit-Chat,Smile and Giggles by dearestfriend on March 27, 2007

I know I should not be joking about it..
But you know someday it happens, You want to recollect funny incidents in your life. So yet another funny memory. I would love if you want to pen down any of you funny memories too..
I was going to late afternoon boring engineering lab session. We were 3 of us chatting our way from hostel to lab..We saw our most irritating Lady Professor just drive by on her famous scooter 🙂
She was irritating person, who would irritate us twice. Once in classes, second as a hostel warden. I think she is most non-dynamic person I ever saw in engineering stream. She was going towards a cross section in college campus, From other end our another Professor was coming ( this professor was to take our lab session). They both collided and the scene was so funny that our Lady Professor rolled over our other young professor and his friend sitting on back seat of bike. I was so over amused that I laughed my stomach out.. And my other friend was laughing too. But somehow lab professor seems to only have noticed me. As a penalty, he did bug me for whole of the semester and during my exam lab, in viva session. These were conversations:
Prof: Yes, So you seem to be quite a topper in your class. So what do you know about survey engineering?
Me : Little bit , sufficient enough to pass though third semester

Prof : Hmmm, By the way have you learnt Sanskrit?
Me: (amused on thought maybe he thinks my pronunciation is too good) Yes, indeed I have read personally too.

Prof : good.. So I hope you have also read, “Vinay vidwanasya abhushanam asti”
Me : Yes I have.

Prof : What does it mean?
Me: It means learned people should be polite and respectable to others.

Prof: Wonderful, So you know it. Good. So now That I know that you know it. And I also know that other day you laughed real loud at me. How many marks do you think I should give you out of 25?
Me : (Firstly I am surprised that out of 3 months since the incident , he still seems to have imprinted it in his mind) I said, As much as a person of my caliber should get.

Prof: Hmm..So what s your caliber? You have the ability to laugh loudest out of 200 meters range from lab on your professor.
Me: (by Now, I had realized he s ragging me hard) See Sir, you have liberty to do as you think right. Frankly speaking If you were in my place and you had kind of personality I have. You would laugh out loud and still be respectful for the people involved in it. The whole humor was not becos you were there.. it was bcos of awkwardness of madam rolling over. But I must say sorry for it, as it’s not appropriate.

Prof: Ok, I think you may go now
Me: Thanks Sir.

While I was coming out of the lab, I thought I would flunk this lab session. But surprisingly he did give some 23 out of 25. So He was n’t all that unfair too..

Humorous Tickle

Posted in Chit-Chat by dearestfriend on March 26, 2007

Well I would start this with a personal story I can recall. And I still can’t help but laugh aloud.
Ok this was during a train journey in India. I was on train from Mumbai to Nasik. As usual it was full to its capacity. And I somehow was finding a place to stand for another 3-4 hours. Crowd was diverse from kids to beggars to hawkers to just about anybody. There were 3 Muslim ladies, who seemed close to each other. And they were travelling with their kids. So the seat where I was standing near had 3 ladies and 5 kids sitting. One thing noticeable about the family was they had more frequent eating breaks than usual. Every 10 minutes one of the ladies will get up and open one food can and start distributing to kids.. I dint know how hungry kids were.. But they all ate each time the food can was opened. They seemed to have carried lot of food and i saw atleast 4-5 huge food cans on over head rack plus lots of other baggage.

Those ladies were little sympathetic to me, since I had a huge travelling bag. They were seemingly trying to adjust to that buggy bag.
They even offered to make a place for me. I refused saying. “No I like standing in train “. Though the truth was I couldn’t think anybody could shrink more. Suddenly the lady sitting on floor gets up to get down. It was her destination station. Those Muslim ladies insisted a lot to me, that I sit there and be comfortable. I told them No I really prefer standing. We argue back and forth. Though I was getting little weaker with three adult ladies convincing me to sit there. After 5 minutes of their insisting and my refusal we reached a point where they kind of found me prude. One of the lady convinced herself by saying.. “Logg khade khade itna thak gaye hain.. kii baithne se bhi bezaar ho gaye hain” (means people are so tired standing, They don’t even want to sit now) . Another girl standing behind me thought its apt opportunity to grab a seat.
She came forward and offered to sit there. These ladies were so relaxed that at least some one has wisdom to follow their advice. After the reorg train goes on.. After some 10-15 minutes, there is sudden “Thud” voice… and we see the girl sitting on floor almost getting fainted. What has happened is, Muslim ladies have kept 5 liters water can on overhead rack. Which came failling down with a jerk on tracks.. I can’t imagine how strong I felt like laughing aloud.. It was so hard to control my laughter and be civil to that gal. I helped her out. I gave her some pain killer. The gal was almost unconscious. Now we were three people standing, two out those 3 Muslim gals and me. And to my surprise those Muslim ladies were laughing and telling me how good it was that I didn’t take that seat..:-)
Every time I think of that incidence I just can’t stop laughing.

What is grace?

Posted in Free thoughts by dearestfriend on March 25, 2007

These are few web definitions for grace I found on google:
— elegance and beauty of movement or expression
— seemliness: a sense of propriety and consideration for others
— a disposition to kindness and compassion; “the victor’s grace in treating the vanquished”

Here are some quotes on grace.

“Grace is the love that gives, that loves the unlovely and the unlovable.” -Oswald C. Hoffmann

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” -Anne Lamott

“Grace is love that cares and stoops and rescues.” -John R. W. Stott (1921- )

“Grace does not destroy nature, it perfects it.” -Saint Tshomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

“Grace tried is better than grace, and more than grace; it is glory in its infancy” -Samuel Rutherford

“As heat is opposed to cold, and light to darkness, so grace is opposed to sin.” -Thomas Benton Brooks (1608-1680)

I could not find any other quotes on grace. So I thought I would quote myself..

I think Grace is peace inside you, when you feel you are not in best of the conditions and still thankful to some part of the situation. That’s grace.

Grace is also the compassion you show, when you dont have anything left in you to be good.

Grace is the poise with which you fight when you know you dont have much power to win the battle.

Grace is belief in future in face of ugly outcome.

Grace is when someone dear to you tears you apart. And still you feel affection for them

Grace is what parents have, when we shout on them for our senseless demands.

Grace is when you see the light at the end of tunnel.

And last but not the least ..

Grace is thankfulness to god in whichever situation you are.

My fav poems

Posted in Uncategorized by dearestfriend on March 23, 2007

This is my all time favorite poem. And Guess what this is really true.. Once you follow it, You get lot of peace inside.

Anyway – a poem Mother Teresa
A poem hung in the Calcutta orphanage

People are unreasonable, illogical, self-centred
… love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives
… do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies
… be successful anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow
… do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable
… be honest and frank anyway.
People love underdogs but follow only top dogs
… follow some underdog anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight
… build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you try to help
… help people anyway.
If you give the world the best you have, you may get kicked in the teeth
… but give the world the best you have
… Anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
