Vague Dreams


My dreams are always the weirdest amongst my friends… They are funny and vivid and senseless and amazing.. Things change shape in less than a millionth fraction of a second and a series of inter-connected scenes are created that have no link with each other and yet they are all connected to me!!! I’m sharing them today because Kritika had a horrible one yesterday and I need to make her feel better about it.. By narrating mine, I’ll make her realize that such dreams are stupid and they won’t come true!

Last Night… I slept after telling an old friend.. the story of a girl who ran away with her boyfriend, struggled for saving her life and later, with the help of her family started a whole new episode. So the dream began with her face hovering over my motionless body (oh no I was not dead, I was asleep)… She was mumbling something in a language unknown to me and a tear dropped from her eyes and the next moment I saw a clear water river.. I could see small white stones and grey rock inside the water that were causing disruption in the motion of water.. Yes, no fishes or sea horses in my dream! I know it’s disappointing. Anyways, the small waves turned into a white wedding gown, the lower end of which was caressing the grass as the bride walked down the aisle .. there was no one in the entire area except her… but she did not care, I guess.. she moved towards a mirror and looked straight into my eyes.. oh my, it wass me looking at me.. and all of a sudden.. I relax my raised eye-brow and my lips twirled into a ok-now-I-understand kind of smile and I murmured with a promising simper.. I do!!! And then I heard my sister shouting at me, her irritating words – ‘I don’t care if you die of hunger but you will not get anything to eat until you find my lost lipstick.. How could you give it to Aashi for playing?? You are such an irresponsible shameless irksome fool…..’ That was it.. I picked up a knife and cut the gas-pipe and picked up a match-box from pooja-ghar, opened it and took out a match-stick and almost rubbed it against the box.. But, may be she was quicker than I was.. She jumped over me and I fell on floor bearing the weight of both our bodies and my head hit the sharp edge of her granite kitchen slab and I felt something hot… May be I succeeded in lighting a fire but then I felt a warm fluid in my eyes and the next second, I was sobbing with the same girl who was crying over someone’s dead body.. I’m sure a lot more happened in the dream but I remember only this much!!

PS: If you have a clue why my dreams are so crazy, or if you think they are not because this is what you call a normal dream, or you have a dream to share.. go ahead and tell me!!
Have a happy Sunday!! 🙂

    You ask about crazy/normal dreams… Permit me to say what I got from your dream! I don’t think that dreams fortell the future or anything as precise as that. When I think about my dreams I take it for granted that everybody in the dream is some aspect of me – make or female!

    You actually said this yourself: it’s ‘all connected to me’ and that’s the key!

    So the girl who ran away is you with some idea of change in your life but with proper help from the family

    The girl mumbling in an unknown language is a part of you that seeks to come to terms with who you are, not quite understanding everything…

    Then the tear that becomes a river so it joins a kind of universal tear & recognised for what it is – part of life…

    Then you do recognise that she was you because in the mirror it was a case of ‘me looking at me’ and that gave you understanding: you had an ‘ok-now-I-understand kind of smile’ on your face.

    You join with her ‘sobbing with the same girl who was crying over’ a
    ‘dead body’ = just a kind of change – death to previous self.

    Sometimes you think of some drastic solution – a gas explosion – but it comes to nothing…

    Then you have to say whether this makes any kind of sense; I’m not entitled to these interpretations because I didn’t have the dream – you did!

    I follow Jung who took this line!

    What do you think now? !
