Tell me your dreams

There is a very thin line between fact and fiction and I seemed to have barged that line so much that even a real account into my dream life seems like my stupid stories. So I decided to double the dosage and torture you all with another account of my dream life.

The trouble of having lived in various places is that you know many people and you never know who amongst them is going to knock in that night. At times I get to see my first crush who was a Gujarati girl when I studied in Gujarat in my dreams...and suddenly she would knock me cold by talking in Tamil. For so long I used to think that in our dreams we could be the Hero/heroine and nothing could go wrong. It all got wrong 3 days before.

It was a dream where I was a devious, evil and calculating fella. I did evil things which I couldn’t have had done in my real life. The climax of the dream was worse. Yeah yeah....thats the trouble of being a movie fanatic. All that my dreams don’t have are songs, Interval, Pop corn, Samosa and Inji morappa. Some times I even get to say Punch Dialogues. In the climax it is revealed that I have Multiple Personality Disorder. I fainted in my dream and woke up in real.

If you thought that I could not have imagined worse, wait for more. My favorite recurring dream/Nightmare was the Exam dreams. Exam dreams? Yeah. Whenever I used to go to my home after my semester holidays, this exam dreams used to bump in at least 10 times of those 30 days. It’s a dream where I would go to the exam and screw it up one way or other. Either I would forget my hall ticket, or drafter, or would be in the hall of EEE's for a thermodynamic exam and so on. I don’t remember a single instance of having finished my exam in my dreams.

The worse one was when once I entered into the exam hall and got my question paper and was filling the details in my answer sheet. The invigilator madam came to me and looked at me from toe to head. I had a big Bata shoe, Nike socks.....and a towel. She looked disgustingly towards me as if I looked like the innocent school boy in Shakeela movies. She dragged me by my ear (thank god towel was spared) and I was close to tears as I kept telling her that this was my last semester, that I had got placed, that I had a family to support. Uhummmm....no chance. Madam was in a supreme foul mood and threw me out of the hall as Captain Vijaykanth does to his Pakistani Villains.

Shocked I woke up and didnt know where the hell I was for 2 minutes. Then I realized that it was July and that I had passed and had got all my certificates and was waiting for the company guys to call me up. You cannot imagine how much relieved I was to realize this at 3 AM.

Anyone of you has got anything to make me feel better?

One dream that I remember very well was during some cricket match in chennai. I dreamt that I was playing on our streets with my friends and Azharuddin and rest of the team sees us playing while passing by and they get impressed and the next shot was the match, I was playing as part of the Indian team. And we won the match, Azhar comes near me to greet and someone wakes me up....Damn!!!

Daydreaming and overdreaming can be very dangerous. You can lose control over the mind.
Psychiatrists also try to analyze dreams as a part of the treatment.

Hiren said...

Sorry, wrong identity. I was dreaming.

Aiyooo ..Pavam.
My dreams restrict to studying for exmas and blaberring the equations.

I once dreamt of boating in Niagara falls and the sound was too realistic. When I got up in the morning mom's anger was at its peek. It was water tap turned on that gave me the realistic sound of water gushing :-)

Deja vu! I always get the dream of reaching late to the exam hall. Forgetting to finish my homework and worst fear of not taking hall ticket, pen not writing in the last minute in the hall. Calculator not working!

Gosh, i once ended up taking 3 spare calculator to my exam hall coz the previous day night i had a dream of my calculator not working! and to my surprise, one of them didnt really work, on which i was totally dependant on! The spares, spared my life!
