One can classify
dreams into a variety
of different types
Dreams can take us to
places we have never ever
thought of exploring
Despite seeing a coating of slime on the
rock, he decided to sit and as he looked out
to the sea, all he could think of was the day
he had come to the city with a lot of
hopes and dreams in his eyes, though his knowledge
about the big bad world out there had been zilch.
Being a pilot was her goal,
As a matter of fact, traveling the world was her dream,
Dreams knew no boundaries,
All she wanted was journeys,
Courtesy which she could go overseas,
She hoped to travel far and wide,
Meeting people from different countries and cultures,
Spreading her happiness as she went along,
They told that the world was a beautiful place,
She wanted to explore it one city at a time,
Experiencing different cuisines in every city,
Traveling opened her eyes to all the possibilities,
With new perspectives and insights,
She was relieved that she was now a bird whose dreams had got wings.
As soon as he had finished twelfth grade, he had left to pursue his graduation in the hallowed halls of Stanford University. While his parents knew that they would miss him after all these years, they also understood that it was important for their son to achieve his dreams and fulfill his ambitions.
While initially he was regular in his calls and messages, their interactions started to reduce as the months went by. Suffering from a chronic medical condition, his mom’s health started to get worse as she kept yearning for her son to come back.

All of us have an expiry date (the date we would die). There’s no one who can expect to live forever. If there was a possibility, how many of you would want to live forever?
But this expiry date is not something any of us actually know. At least among us Indians, as soon as we reach the wrong side of 50 many start thinking as if our time on Earth is nearing its end. Interestingly, on the other side of the spectrum, I have seen men and women at the age of 70+ in countries like Germany, UK etc. fit and fine to even go on tourist visits all alone without their kids.
I recently watched the movie ‘Everest’ and first things first, I must say that it’s a visually breathtaking flick. But it got me thinking on the reasons why mountaineers do what they do.
Whether it’s the fun or the dream of conquering the impossible; the craze for living life at the edge or the fame associated with it, mountaineers have their reasons. And it’s the case with not only mountaineers but adrenalin junkies in general.
For many, this so called ‘adventurous’ life is nothing but a waste of money and public health resources. But for those who live on challenges, such experiences give meaning to their lives. It defines their personality and their day to day outlook.

All of us have various goals and dreams. Irrespective of our passions, most of us aim to become rich and famous. But, isn’t there more to life than just earning good money? Isn’t happiness defined by the work you do, the people you meet which includes your friends and family and the time you get to do your own thing?
