6thOct, 2007 Morning

I was sitting with one of my friends in his flat in Mumbai. We both were slouched in a comfortable position and chatting, watching something on T.V. I looked at him and suddenly realized that he was one of the superstars of the film industry. It came as a surprise but I didn't feel any surprise.
Suddenly he switched off the T.V. and remided me of his latest film being premiered that evening and that I should be there with him at the premiere/showcase. Once again I didn't show any surprise/emotion at being invited at a premiere of a film. As a matter of fact, that friend of mine looked and talked like Shahrukh Khan and the film to be premiered looked and sounded like 'Om Shanti Om'. At the premiere party, with a glass of drink in my hand, I looked at my friend and he looked so happy! I had discovered that something bad would happen to him. Perhaps his girlfriend was planning to breakup with him, but I don't know how I came to know that. I was feeling helpless as I couldn't tell him, nor help him in any way.

I saw me and two of my friends trying to run away in a car with my friend driving and the other friend and I sitting at the back. I said that I was afraid to the friend sitting beside me and she hugged me and said that everything is gonna be ok. We drove on a thin road surrounded by marshes on both sides. The situation was that we had to reach somewhere at sometime and we were late. Also, I was the person who'd be playing the major role in something. But at present I can't recall what it was because I overslept !

Two of my friends and I attended some classes on logic, which included the real significance of symbols like '<', '>', '>=', '<=' etc. The teacher taught really well. Apart from that he taught other things that could really help us understand the functioning of human brain. The teacher did teach in school but we wanted to privately learn from him. It was her (one of the two friends) idea, not mine. It was a surprise to see that a teacher teaching in a good school lived in a marshy area. A few days later when We went to his house, we found his son (who looked like one of my seniors) collecting things from the cupboard and stuffing them in a bag. The teacher wasn't there. His son told us that his father won't be coming back.

I received a lot of sweets and toffees and all my favorite ones and I really loved the idea of having so many sweets to eat. One of my father's friend had come to meet me and he told me that my sister was not doing well in her studies and that she'd got bad grades not only at school level but they were very bad even at national and international level. He had brought me some more sweets, chocolates toffees. I thanked him for coming. I thought of calling home but decided to do so the next day. In the next scene, I saw my sister and I offered her the sweets. she declined saying that the sweets were for me. I asked her why she got bad grades and she said that did study for the exams. My father interrupted saying that she played games like quake 3 more than studying. She shud have devoted more time towards her studies. My sister shouted that she didn't. My father switched to a softer tone, saying that it's good to play video games but one should balance his/her schedule in a way that includes everything necessary for work and enjoyment in desirable amount. I agreed, saying that had I played anything/something, I'd have been a better driver. My sister said that I was a better driver than I thought I was, and shut the door on us.
My mother saw so many sweets, toffees with me and looked worried. I reassured her that I'd brush my teeth before and after sleep. Although she wasn't convinced, she smiled and agreed. When I had a handful of those toffees, I understood why she was worried. My right side molar teeth had started bleeding and was getting worse than what it previously was. I had to make a choice... those sweets, toffees or my teeth. I imagined the pain of dental operations/surgeries, the cold atmosphere of the AC, the bluish white light of the tubelights along with the light of the dentist's chair shining over me, and compared them to the taste of those sweets/toffees. I chose those toffees/sweets over my teeth and decided to have the rest of the sweets with my left side teeth.

Then I saw myself standing/waiting with the two of my friends for some event, either a marriage or some feast... and we'd done some makeup to look older and one of my friends (who had consoled me while we were sitting in the car) had done heavy makeup so that no one could recognize her.

2ndOct.2007, Early Morning

I was sitting in my class, trying to concentrate, and understand what the professor was teaching. Someone nudged me from behind. I turned and saw one of my batchmates wanted to ask me about something she'd written in her notebook. I told her that it could be discussed after the class and that I was trying to concentrate and understand the topic professor was teaching. After the class, we stood at the edge of the corridor in front of the class, facing the ground below and sky above (our class was on the first floor, in the same room which was the library of my school, APS Dhrangadhra when I was in 9th class), discussing some course topic she was facing trouble with. Many of my batchmates were hooting, shouting and chatting loudly that I couldn't concentrate though I could barely hear the noise! She asked me if I could tell answer her query.


I shut the alarm of my mobile, saw the time, 7 o'clock, and decided that it was too early to wake up since today was a holiday, so I slept again.

I saw myself travelling to a lot of places, like a tourist, a lone one though. I visited temples, walked on city streets like 'fashion street', even school functions like sports day/annual function (I saw myself attending my school's sports day!) and at night would return to my room. I also remember travelling by train, sitting alone at the window seat. I visited a temple which was a little below the ground level and when I saw the temple from the main entrance, I could see the whole temple and it looked majestic and splendid, artistic creation. It reminded me of the Shiv temple in Ellora Caves. But this temple was also huge in size and spread over large area.
I realized something during all these days of traveling that I never felt alone during daytime when I was travelling but at night when I returned to my room, I felt lonely. The dim faded yellow light of my room made me feel more lonely.

When I went back home in Pune, I saw everyone in a jolly, festive mood. The house was getting decorated for something (diwali, probably). I saw my father dressed in a suit, adjusting his tie in front of the mirror of the dressing table. I saw my mother dressed in a beautiful saree and my sister wearing some nice dress. My father asked me to pick up one of the boxes of sweets kept in fridge while leaving for someone's place. We went to some place and I saw my father's colleagues and my mother's friends and my sister's friends... everyone was there. My father very fondly was giving sweets to everyone. It was strange that I seem to know no one. Everyone was a stranger to me out there and I somehow didn't feel comfortable there. Amongst the talks between my father and the other officers, one of the officers said something (not directed to me) and I heard it while not directly being a part of the conversation but standing some distance apart. It made me feel the regret and guilt that I was never an achiever in my school days and things hadn't changed till now. I recalled that I never had/have the skills to organize events or people and get your work done by others, work that is important and for which the organizer
is responsible. I could never handle responsibilities and that man forced me to recall this painful truth about myself. I felt more uncomfortable and as I saw other kids in that room, full of vibrant energy and enthusiasm and felt that these kids would do anything better than me.

Suddenly, I saw myself standing on a road and saw a car/truck on fire. Two men were fighting in front of the car/truck on fire. It took me no time to recall that the two men were present in the party that night. I could only watch them and do nothing about it. They hit each other very badly. The elder man dominated the fight and in one final blow, knocked the younger man (he was wearing spectacles and a cloth mask on his eyes which he took off before falling) to the road. Perhaps he died.
When I started to run for help, the whole scene around me changed and I saw myself standing on a calm road, with a few two wheelers moving on both sides of the road. The two men had vanished, so had the burning car. I asked a rickshaw puller if he had seen something of that sort and he said that he had been standing on that road since early morning that day. He said such things never happened and that I must be hallucinating/dreaming. He asked me if I needed a
ride. I said if he could leave me till the central railway station.
The rickshaw puller on our way told me that companies don't reveal their secrets of how they work, their strategies, their plans. Everything is a black box which a user can use. The black box may be free or it may cost something. (I was surprised at the amount of information that rickshaw puller had!) He said that one of the companies actually receives it's visitors at the airport and takes them in a black car, with black windows and the visitor can't see the
route by which he/she is taken to that company. (He said that such was the idea of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, but of course it was my brain churning strange thoughts! :D )
I reached the central station and looked at it from outside for a few seconds. This was the last I saw before I woke up.


This time, once again I overslept, in the hope to continue the dream I was watching when I was woken up by the alarm of my table clock, but all in vain.

I saw myself reading some wierd kind of books, not as wierd as reading about 'palmistry' or 'tarot card reading' or 'black magic' but something similar. I was reading stories, short stories of the incidents which were the result of some supernatural elements. Incidently, all were not stories as such, and looked real as when some of such stories were opened in the book, they turned into some kind of 3d videos and I could actually live the incidents. Though living/witnessing those incidents/stories was not a pleasant experience, it wasn't frightening either. It was more amusement and humor at times.
In one of these stories, which turned into a video as I opened the page for that story, I saw 'Owen Wilson' (not kidding) leaving his bunglow, crossing the road and walking towards a small broken wall. He climbed the wall which was covered with wires and barbed wires in the shape of a spiral, took an electric wire (high voltage), wrapped it around his neck, and started the flow of current. I saw him electrocuting himself with large size full moon shining brightly at the backdrop. It was not scary, it was rather mystifying.
In another of such stories (rather videos) I saw myself standing in some building, perhaps the terrace and saw a man, terrified as one could be, white faced, red eyed, fear covering his severely wrinkled face, was running from something or someone, perhaps his death. He looked here and there, and moved rather slowly when he reached almost the end of terrace.
None of the stories had the creatures like vampires/werewolfs but they were as wierd as the one I just told.
As I progressed in my reading of these stories, they became more live and personal, and I could feel myself standing and watching the events happening in front of my eyes. They gradually turned into a 3d movie watching experience from a mere reading and visualizing/imagining experience. I would sit for long hours in library when I didn't have classes and read books on these stories at a stretch. I had no idea why I chose a particular book or why I was reading such books. It was a kind of sudden interest that propelled this new desire of mine.

In the next scene, I met my mother in a big temple. I say big because it was 'BIG'. It had huge domes, large area, with smaller temples scattered all over the place and though I don't remember going for darshan to any of those temples, I do remember standing beside my mother, while she collected prashad and the first thing she asked me was if I had completed reading those books. I nodded in affirmation as if it was she who told me to read those books and I didn't show any sign of surprise.
She asked me to collect prashad. I took a plate like everyone and joined the queue. Most of the people in queue were dressed in traditional Indian dress, i.e., girls/women wore saree, and boys wore a dhoti and a cloth covering their upper body. The pundits offering prayers to God and their presence were confined to the interiors of the temples. The sweet(prashad) sellers wore dhoti and a cloth covering their upper body, just like the boys. The only exception was that no man (adult male) was present to offer his prayers in that/those temple(s). Hence I wasn't an adult but a school boy in this dream ! :)
My mother had come to the temple with some of her friends.
My prashad plate (thaali) was filled by different prashads as I progressed in the queue and visited different prashads counter (donno the hindi word!), including a large poori, some sweets and two pieces of some sweet which looked like small thick poori, soaked in sweet syrup(chashni). Of course I paid for all the prashads(sweets) I got but the prashads were supposed to be blessed with the blessings of the Almighty and hence the person who ate the prashads would be blessed for live and that all his bad deeds would be forgived.
One of the sweet seller refused to sell me more than two pieces of his sweet. On my insistence he said that if more were sold to a particular family then brufanity (he might have meant 'profanity', but rather the word looks like 'brutality'+'profanity') would increase. I couldn't understand him, and I was the only one who was asked by his mother to take prashad from him. She said that since he wasn't there in the temple last year, we should seek his blessings as well by buying his sweets, perhaps a little extra than usual amount, and so asked me to take some extra prashad. This might have meant that more the different kinds of prashads one gets, the more blessed one is (this is my guess).
I looked around and saw that other people in the queue behind me and before me had left, rather vanished. No one seemed to notice this prashad seller.
I asked him if he wanted more money for his sweets and he said that money was not the reason, had it been so, the rich would have dominated the others long ago. He said it was something else, which he couldn't tell me. He was getting little restless and irritated.
Like a small baby, I went back to my mother and said that the person refused to sell his sweets.
On watching my mother approaching him, he gave a terrified look like the other people I'd seen in those stories I'd read.
Before he could say anything to my mother, I WOKE UP !!

11th Sept. 2007, Early Morning.

Of my first dream, the last thing I remember is telling someone that the lady whom I'd be for the rest of my life need not be pretty, but should be beautiful. Someone who'd be honest with me and vice versa, there'd be trust and affection and blah blah... and I saw her face, and she wasn't pretty but indeed looked beautiful. Can't recall how she looked. I felt her presence and walked towards her, when I was woken up by a knock at my door! :(
Within a minute, I lied down on my bed and tried to sleep again, in an effort to recall what I'd seen, but had a different experience this time.

I saw myself lying on my stomach (sleeping) on some carpet, in front of the throne of the emperor, on which the queen was sitting. I suddenly woke up, raised my head a little, looked around and saw a few members of parliament, dressed in nice shiny robs all staring at me. I felt like sleeping again, when suddenly I caught sight of the paintings/pictures on the walls just behind the members of the parliament. I saw myself in some of the pictures, and it wasn't me, of course! That surprised me to an extent that I decided to sacrifice my sleep and I woke up. I realized that I was sleeping on the foot of the throne of the queen.
I got up a little and moved backwards, looked around, still trying to figure out the situation and then looked at the paintings/pictures again... I saw standing with the queen and a few others in the pictures.
Next thing I saw, I was travelling with queen and her daughter. I was sitting beside her (the daughter). Something got over me and moved forward and we kissed each other on lips. It was an awesome feeling. Then again I kissed her and she obliged. The third time, I had to move back since she got bored and irritated by it! :D Then I hugged her and dozed off (seriously I have no idea what was going on! I'm typing whatever I can recall.) Yeah, her mom was watching all the time. The daughter was of my age! :p I found myself falling for her, she was so adorable!
Next I'm standing in some kind of hospital and I visit this hospital because my sister has some work, either she has to be admitted or she wants to go there to help, I don't know! The hospital is inside a big building (and the princess is standing beside me during all this) and my sister says good bye to me and enters a huge blue colored tent, which looked like the ICU. Some old women accompanied her, I don't know if it was the queen or someone else!
It almost looked like the situation of 'Don'. I become the prince and save the empire while the queen helps my sister by either getting her treated or helping in fulfiling her dream of treating others, being a doctor and blah blah...
Next I find myself again in that hospital building in front of the blue tent. I stand just outside the tent and find my sister severely sick with blood coming out of her lips, red eyes etc.! (shouldn't have watched Dr. House episodes!) Next second I find my father sitting beside her and I try to stop him from doing anything. He says, "Trust me, I can treat her. you have to trust me this time!" and I allow him to do the necessary. He draws all the blood out of her body, cleanses it and again repumps the blood back into her body. She recovers! :D

Of the third dream that I saw, I remember nothing except that, I survived death and was a nice changed person and look at things in a more positive and happy way. In general my life is happy and I shed my shyness and without worrying about what people think, do things which I think is right. I inspired many people in this way, but I don't remember anything specific about this dream.

The last two paragraphs are the result of me watching two episodes of Dr. House yesterday!

19th August 2007 Early Morning

I saw myself as a school student and me and a few friends (didn't see them or meet them) decided to do something. We had a plan and we had to do something important. I saw myself at some place, and I was there to protect/save/look after something. Before that I saw myself driving a car and I was disgusting at it! I drove real slow with lack of control on the steering.
Actually I was at my home, and the stuff I was to save/protect/look after was with me at my home. I was on a holiday from school and suddenly I was attacked by some people. They broke in. I just managed to grab the stuff and left in a hurry. I drove my father's car and tried to get as far away as possible!
I reached an old ruined building and hid there, waiting. In a matter of few minutes, they located me (I had hidden the car well off the road!). I saw bulldozers and giant drillers breaking into the building and breaking it down. I was cornered and I saw what I least expected. The "stuff" was taken by them and the cops instead of doing something to them, arrested me! I was just 19 years old!
I lost the stuff to them and was further taken aback when I got arrested. I was sentenced 2 years imprisonment. I never expected to be arrested for such a thing, I thought I was doing something good!
I was to be taken to prison the next day. So I slept at home that night. There wasn't much talking and my father looked more worried than angry. It looked like my mother didn't want to think about it or about anything and my sister unaware of what had happened, was puzzled by everyone's behavior. That night, while sleeping, I realized the importance of home and that I'd be missing the happy moments that I'd spent at home.
Next I saw myself sitting on a bed, reading something. I expected myself to be going to college, but there I was, sitting in confinement. I'd rather call it confinement because the place was in no way like a prison. I had a room to myself, with two beds with beddings, a cupboard, books, ceiling fan, attached bathroom, toilet. A door and a window which faced huge farmlands. Sunshine poured into the room every morning till late evening. It was like living in a pucca house in a village. I felt ashamed and dejected at first, but the place wasn't bad after all. I started reading as many books as I could. I wanted to use the time I had while living in prison.
Next thing I saw myself standing near the edge of cliff and batman standing at the edge of the cliff. A moment later, I saw myself hanging from the edge of the cliff. A few feet away, batman was also hanging from the edge of the cliff and joker standing at the edge of the cliff and laughing. The next moment, the batman standing at the edge of the cliff, turned towards me and said that injustice was done to me and should be corrected. My first thoughts were that Batman rescued me from the prison but I later realized that perhaps he was the one to help me by arranging for such a pleasant stay during my prison years.
We had to fight for justice and that a lot of things were to be done. My dream was broken by my mobile ringing the alarm!

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


Initially I was at my home and I had to go to some award function. Me and my sister were to get ready and my parents were arguing as to what we should be wearing. Finally I wore something (got ready!) :D
Surprisingly I was the host at the function. I was just there to attend it, and now I was the host! I think I was wearing a suit. I was given a nice room before the show. One of my school friend was my co-host. Either it was Naveen or Himanshu. Show went nicely. This show was conducted every year. I still don't understand why I was the host ! I don't remember what happened at the show. But after the show, while sitting in my room, I realized that I possessed some extraordinary abilities and that my co-host had them too. I discovered it by wishing for something difficult and out of my reach and abilities, and yes! it happened! It had to do something with a door!
After the show, me and my co-host were walking back and came across a settlement, which looked like an advanced village. There the villagers talked about mythical powers and supernatural powers and believed that we had such powers. He said that we were supposed to protect something.
I was standing in a shop of that village and buying something when a few of them asked me for money. Apparently, I knew those people and thought that it was my duty to help them, since I was not so poor and had money which could help them. I reached inside my trousers' pockets and felt only a few 100 Rs. notes. They were less. I secretly wished for some more money and gently and slowly moved my fingers in my pocket, in a gesture of feeling some more coins. I just wished for it and imagined I have them, and yes! my pocket was filled with extra notes. I gave them the money they required.
Some people saw me doing this and started attacking us. It started as a bare hand fight and one of them hit me and wounded me real badly. Then I saw myself and my co-host and a few villagers behind a cargo truck (it was an army truck) and having a gun-fight with the bad guys. They also looked like a part of the village. I felt like using my special ability here, but didn't since I had this feeling that either someone from that group or someone else also had such kind of ability and wanted to be the sole owner of this ability. I used my revolver to aim well and injure them. I soon realized that I was the main target! and my guess was confirmed because one of the guys tried to shoot me on my legs first, then when I climbed at the edge of the truck, he shot again in my direction and even came close to kill me! I saw one of the bad guys with some special ability. I could sense and feel it. Finally the fight was over, I don't remember how!
It was my first real fight and I was rather excited and happy about it! Later I realized that I was not the main target but only that I was standing in a vulnerable position and was an easy target that I was their aim. Those bad guys were looking for something else and thought that we (me and my co-host) were bad guys. No one was killed.
Apparently, the village was a soldier's colony and the people I met were soldiers.

I saw an army officer knocking from one house after another, looking for something. His chauffer carried only a chair on his head ! and looked fed up by what his boss was doing. Then the officer and the chauffer drove on some dusty downhill kind of road, and they saw the back of a big lion with wings! walking lazily. They were petrified and the chauffer somehow kept a good speed and they overtook it in no time. But it looked that the creature was in no mood to spring into any kind of action. It had beautiful white wings and was apparently happy with his life.
When the officer and his chauffer were returning on the same road, they saw the animal (lion with wings) in rage and people were trying to control it. The two didn't feel petrified this time, but wanted to help and knew they couldn't, so they left. The wings of lion had become brownish and dirty white and kind of bruised.
As a surprise, the army officer was the actual host and was actually looking for the place! :D I wonder what would have happened if he had got those powers.
I finally conclude that the hosts were randomly chosen, but with a definite random function. The person trying to injure me was in the army, then it was me as a mistake in place of this crazy dumbhead officer! :D
I saw the next host, which was a couple. I think Hrithik was the husband! :D They were happy first but then started arguing on something. Husband accused her of hiding something and confining herself in her own life. Suddenly a wall appears around the lady and she breaks the wall facing her and walks out of the walls.
We were linked... but don't know how! I was destined to be there, but why? I don't know!

25th May Night::

Me and a few of my friends decided to hang out somewhere after our morning classes and afternoon tutorials and lab sessions everyday. I always saw a list (names written on a wooden board floating in front of keane school :D ) of me and my friends who decided to hang out together. In the dream I only saw us watching movie together in some cinema hall ( we went to same cinema hall everytime we went out to watch a movie ). I saw Arjun Chhikara, Prateek G.V. and a few more guys ( I don't remember everyone ).
I had some personal work one day and so I agreed to meet them after sometime. One of my friend suggested a short cut to me, that I could take, to reach that place in less time. He gave me the directions on a wooden board (similar to the one which had list of my friend's) with names of places written on it. He pointed to the name of a place and asked me to take a right turn just before I reach that place and follow the trail, which would directly take me to that place. I agreed and left.
I don't even remember who suggested me the short cut, and that way never took me to our new place of hangout !
When I reached the place later that day, I was not sure if I should be taking the short-cut. I was not even sure if I was at the right place. The bus conductor gave me a strange, surprised look when I asked him to stop at that place. I was now standing alone on the road, with wild weeds and moor on both sides. There was a dusty beaten path and looked like it would take you somewhere, but now I was not sure if I should be taking that path. Nevertheless, I started walking on that path. After a few minutes, I did see some houses at a distance and looked like a colony. I walked enthusiastically towards the colony, relieved since I thought I was lost in the moors. I walked on the streets, stopping people and asking the address of the place I was supposed to be in, for the hangout. Nobody knew the place and surprisingly they didn't even understand the language I spoke ( neither English nor Hindi... no they were not telugu speaking people ). I was perturbed and agitated. My first thought was to return the same way I had come from. But then suddenly, a small child invited me to play his game. It surprised me. He gave me a non-verbal demo of the game with the help of gestures. Perhaps he might have realized that I couldn't understand their language. I was hesitant, but then he caught my arm and gently pulled me into the game. It was a game which included some symbols on the ground and one has to jump and do something with those symbols. After that the child took me to his house's roof and I could view far and wide standing on the roof of his house. What I didn't realize was that nothing but moors and dusty land could be seen and that there was no visible traces of human civilization that could be seen. But what I did notice was the colour of the sky ( pinkish orange ) and that the weather was cool and sun was about to set. I had fun for some more time with the kid till some grown-ups joined us. The kid looked like the kid in 300 and that the closest possible resemblance to this place is the city of Agrabah. So, while I was at the roof with this kid, instead of getting to see the city and the palace, what I could see was dust and moor and wild plants randomly growing here and there.
Next thing I saw I was again sitting in the classroom and attending a lecture. I later told my friends' the reason I couldn't come and that my friend had told me a wrong short-cut. The friend apologizes and I realize that it is Prateek G.V.
Later I see Prateek and I dancing and enjoying on the roof of that kid's house with some kids while the sky dimly glows pinkish orange and the weather is cool.

24th May night ( after 1 o'clock ):

I saw myself travelling in a vehicle at a neckbreaking speed. I first thought that it was a bullet train. It had two compartment ( as far as I could see ). I was sitting in the second compartment. I tried to go to the other compartment to meet Asrar by jumping to the oter compartment, crossing the emptyness in between the two compartments. Everything looked blue, the lighting inside the bogies were also blue. I met Asrar and he said that he would be asked oral questions and some written ones and he had to present his work. Everyone had to do the same in his compartment and that students from the second compartment had to do something extra, which sounded like some interview ! I was tensed but I said that I've seen a lot of bad things ( in this context, I didn't get things I wanted ! ) happening to me in the past and it didn't matter to me anymore whether I succeed or fail. I was sweating and prepared for this one. I later realized that this vehicle was flying and not levitated.
I felt the vehicle stopping ( nothing could be seen through the windows, or doors and everything looked black outside ). I decided not to go out to have dinner, because they usually stopped at some unknown place. I'm not saying that the place is bad or unhygienic, it's just that I don't generally feel like having food during journeys. But someone told that the food will be served by the caretakers of the bus and so I got down. I looked out and saw a long queue and indeed, the food was laid... it was nice, but I can't remember what... except for ice-cream!
I quickly became a part of the queue. I heard someone shouting for participants for playing the game of balloons. In that game, every participant has to get hold of a balloon after it is left in the air and then hold it without getting it bursted. The person doing so for the longest duration wins. While taking my ice-cream, I caught a balloon and quietly gave it to a girl ( participant ). She wasn't even aware that the game had begun! :D
Since she was the first to get hold of a balloon, she won the first prize. This reminds me of an incident in my real life that once I didn't let a pretty looking girl win a game ( since I won it ! ) and I feel stupid about it ( the game was statue dance ). After helping this girl win this balloon game, I feel nice. :)

Then my sleep breaks, I am reminded that I am still traveling in a bus. I watch a few scenes of some Anil Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia movie and then sleep again....

I find myself going from one place to another, the place looked wierd. I was walking, but the distances were long ( does that mean I was walking fast or was I a giant ??!! ). I did hire a 7-seater but most of the time, I was moving from one part of some city ( looked like a mixture of Jalandhar and Hyderabad ) to the other part. Same was with my mother. We both moved from one place to another and came home at night. I later realized what I was doing. I was exploring the place. We were new to that place.
After a few days, my father asked for the balance and the amount of money spent. I started telling him, and my mother interrupted occasionally to show that more money was spent. So, I had to mould my words to fit in her ideas.

20th May 2007, a hot summer afternoon

I struggled to stay awake but sleep won. When I woke up in frustration and sweat I could only recall a few glimpses of my dream.

"I saw that there is a place isolated from any civilized place and is quite far off. I saw a truck coming up a dusty road, between a huge wall(a hill) and a great depression of earth. It moved slowly and I saw it stop in front of some cave like entrance on the road. People... actually they either didn't look like humans or perhaps wore something special, came out of the truck and started unloading stuffs. A man also got out of the truck. He looked like the boss. Suddenly I saw another man sneaking out of the truck, some stuff on his shoulder and trying to move towards the entrance. As he left the shadow of the truck, he was hit by an arrow coming out of nowhere. He fell along with the stuff he was carrying. Then I realized something strange. The ones working for that boss were not hurt since either they were not humans or they took precautions and the big boss was not hurt since maybe the program shooting arrows was programmed not to harm him.
We had to break this system and sneak in, I decided.
Next moment I saw myself with two/three of my friends coming out of the truck. We moved cautiously, and tried not to make any noise or disturbance. Breeze started blowing all of a sudden and the cloth on one of my friends was lifted and her hand was exposed outside. I heard an arrow coming at us and hurriedly took her hand inside the cloth. That cloth made us invisible, so the machine shooting arrows didn't come to know about us! :D
When I entered the place, it looked like a giant research lab with rooms filled with equipments, scientists, students doing research, discussions etc. We decided to split, since we had already entered the place and fooled the security system. I started climbing the flight of stairs going upwards. It was silence all around, not a noise, except for my breath. I couldn't help noticing a giant machine kept at a corner of a huge round space in between surrounded by flight of stairs all around. I saw a scientist taking a class and his students listening intently. The door was left agar and so I quickly crossed the door and hurried upstairs but none of the noise I made seemed to bother them. As I climbed higher and higher, the climb got more difficult. At one point it looked impossible and failing to climb would have meant falling a few 100 meters downwards leading to instant death. I wanted to climb but due to fear, left it. I started walking down the stairs when I saw my batch mates moving and looking around and that giant machine was not there, that round space in the center of this big giant place was not there.
The place had changed. How?
The same big boss asked us to gather around him so that he could guide us about this place of his. The big boss wasn't an old man. He looked like he was in his mid-forties and talked quite nicely. I somehow started liking him. But what about the plan me and my friends had made? I couldn't find my other friends!
We stayed there for a few days, and though I only saw a few of my batch mates, I remember eating in a place that looked like "Yuktahaar mess" of IIIT-Hyderabad and the place where I slept on the ground looked very much like "NBH mess" of IIIT-Hyderabad.
At another instance, I was stopped at a place by a lady and asked to select a ladies' dress. I was taken aback! I said I don't need it. She said it'd be good if you buy one for your wife. I laughed and said that I was still single. She said then maybe for my future wife. I felt disgusted and left.
The place had transformed a lot or was it my mind that was playing games?
I helped in things like food and other household stuff. One day I got upset and decided to go on with completing the task I had in my mind. I had to do it alone and I had lost all my friends. I again started climbing the flight of stairs to reach the top. This time I climbed faster, but after sometime, I saw some of my batch mates coming behind me. First I thought that this would be a disturbance then, realized that it could be a great help!
Finally I got stuck in a place, since the next flight of stairs was missing and was folded and kept on the next flight of stairs. I felt disgusted. Aakash came to help and we tried to get it but couldn't. Finally Vivek came and told that if he was me, he wouldn't be wasting time on that. Aakash added that it was pointless getting that missing part. It was impossible to get it.
As we walked down, Vivek showed us his new i-phone and talked about its' features and how it worked. It was good to hear that.
Meanwhile my other batch mates had started exploring the place and now I was sure, someone would solve the problem of missing link in the long flight of steps."

I am sure I've missed a lot of details in this dream also, but it's always hard to recall what one has seen after one wakes up! I hope you understand! :D

15th May 2007, Afternoon

I saw this dream after watching 22nd episode of Heroes. Heroes was AWESOME!!

I was somewhere in some island and there was a party or something. People were drinking and having a nice time. I was on vacation but it looked like some people needed my help there. My family went back and I stayed for a few days. I narrowly escaped my death when a guy tried to kill me and fled through the jungles (they were deep jungles with lots of trees and ancient structures and creatures, like in 'age of mythology' and 'age of empires' game) and he couldn't follow me. The guy was not any normal guy and looked like he had special abilities. Somehow I couldn't understand why he left me, was it because something came in his mind that stopped him while he was trying to kill me or was it the jungles which were powerful enough to protect me from any evil powers. The time of attempt of killing was dusk.
There was a death in train, killing of a man in red suit who looked a bad guy and the richest man on the island and I saw him threatening someone I don't know, killing of a lady in some shop with whom I had talked a few hours ago and was talking and looking fine. She was even smiling.
The man killed in the train actually recalled this guy and so this guy appeared and killed him. Surprisingly nobody else saw this guy except the old man in the train and me. People suddenly found the old man drop dead and were shocked. It was just about dusk.
The man in red suit and red pants had called me once earlier and wanted something. I refused to give my services to him. After a few hours, I saw this guy (only a part of his shadow) standing in front of that man in red suit, while the man in red suit was talking on his mobile. I saw this guy killing the man in red suit as soon as the red suit guy turned and looked at him. The man in red suit was a negro and wore a red hat also. It was time, just after twilight.
The lady in the shop was screaming on someone seconds before she died and was acting insane. Was it fear or anger I don't know. I could only see her screaming and not the guy. It was just after sunset, dusk.
Somehow all the people he killed were related to him because they died only when they recalled this guy, especially his name and face. He appeared exactly at that time and killed them. No one else could see him and there was no violence in his killing. People recalled him, looked at him, he did something while standing at a distance and facing them, and they died. Maybe that's why I saw myself lying on the floor while he was staring at me, when someone distracted him and I fled as fast as I could. I was terrified, but not hurt much.

I see this guy with a girl whom he loved and this guy was looking younger now. When he saw his girlfriend dancing with some other guy in an evening party on a beach and smiling and enjoying in his company, he couldn't tolerate it and before he knew it, he had killed him.

I was sitting in my room, doing something on the P.C. when my aunty comes to me and I tell her that i'll go. She says it's not important but I say that my work can be done later also. My mother calls me from the other room. I walk through the corridor(the corridor has barely any lighting in it, it's kind of dark) and reach the other room. I hear her saying that she is unable to do something on the P.C. and that I should be doing that. It's a kind of online competition of a few hours using mouse. It's like covering the maximum distance with the mouse pointer.

I see this guy who is the killer in police uniform walking in the corridor of some police station and would be investigating the same case of murders.

I went out with my parents, sister, uncle and aunty to a fair and there I saw him. He saw me, looked like he wanted to communicate, but with others around he couldn't so he disappeared.
Strange thing, he appeared and disappeared anytime and anywhere he wanted. I think I was present on the spot when people died. Maybe I saw all this in my dream or maybe I am that guy, I don't know. But all this happened after I fled from this guy through the jungle.
Another strange thing is that I meet the people and then after a few hours I see them dying. In this way, I could locate the person he'd kill next. Maybe he kills the people I meet. I don't know!
Maybe I got connected to him after I fled through the forests and so he wanted to meet me, and not kill me this time. Maybe he wanted some help but when I saw him in the fair, he saw me but didn't meet me.
Before I could do anything, I woke up! :D

I am still unable to recall maximum part of my dream. I had slept for 3 hours in the afternoon and there was some fighting and some running and some more exciting scenes which I can feel I'd seen but am not able to recall at present.

8th May 2007, Night.

Final board exams were 3 days away. We were going to school and I was sitting next to her in the bus. I felt great in her presence. We were good friends and as always, we laughed and chatted. I felt sad that after a couple of weeks, maybe i'll never be able to see her. I looked at her as she laughed and giggled. I would really be missing something in life.
After the school, while I was sitting in the bus, on my favourite seat, the second row seat near the window, I saw her getting her practical workbook signed by the teacher. I was reminded of the fact that I also needed to get my practical workbook checked and signed and so I should complete my work in it.
'Maybe i'll have to come to school early tomorrow, finish my work in the lab and get it signed. That would mean reading a lot tonight. Maybe i'd be sleeping at 2 tonight.' My thoughts were interrupted as she came into the bus and sat beside me.
"Hey what happened? You look dull and sad!" she asked.
"Nothing, it's just that you reminded me of something important that I must do, about this practical workbook" and I poked her bag with my finger.
"Oh! Yeah." and she smiled, with dimples spread on either side of her lips. I really loved her smile!
As the bus started moving, I suddenly got this empty feeling again that maybe after a couple of weeks we may never meet. Somehow I thought I couldn't do without her!


We were watching an exhibition of paintings, handicrafts and more importantly, electronics and computer stuffs. I had hard time, hiding my face from my batchmates, seniors, professors, just to be with her and not do some stupid moving around, helping the visitors, answering their queries... My college was organising this exhibition and she had insisted on coming here. I was happy that people were liking the new idea. I had also worked till late last night for this. In short, I was supposed to be a volunteer!
I took her to the basement exhibition rooms, thinking that none of my batchmates would be there (handicrafts exhibition!), but as we moved down the stairs, I saw 'Harsh' coming up the stairs and he saw me!
"Where have you been? Sir is calling you, come fast." he said, gave me a who-is-she kind of look and left in a hurry.
"What is he saying, I don't understand? Is he your friend? Why is he in such a hurry?" she asked me so many questions.
"Yeah he is my friend and I didn't tell you one thing." I said as we entered one of the rooms in the basement section.
"What?" she said it in such a way that I felt like saying, "I think i've fallen in love with you!"
"That my college is organizing this whole exhibition and I should be helping till the event is not over."
"Then you should go and help. I will be fine looking around things, alone." she said and I realised that she was not happy that I had not told her this.
Suddenly, Bhanukiran came from nowhere and said to me, "What are you doing here? You should be..."
"Yeah I know that! I am helping." I said and gestured towards her, "Sorry ma'am I was unable to get your query. Too much interruptions." I said indicating Bhanukiran. I took her outside the room. I thought she would play along, but she pushed me aside, introduced herself and asked for his name.
"He's my batchmate." I said and she was not listening.
"I can't believe it." Suddenly Bhanukiran exclaimed, "I am a big fan of yours! I really like your work." I couldn't understand what was happening.
"I'm glad to hear that." she said and looked at me with disgust.
"What are you people talking about?" I asked in bewilderment, "Bhanu, what's the matter?"
"Don't you know?"
"No." I replied simply.
"She is an artist, an excellent painter." he said, "Her name was on the list of people whose paintings would be displayed."
"Her name was on the list, not her photo." He said and asked her, "Do you know him?"
"We are friends! We have... " I said.
"We were together in school." she interrupted me.
"Hey that's great." And then looking at her, he said, "Ma'am I am a great admirer of yours. Can I talk to you for sometime, just say 5 minutes. I am really excited about this!"
"Hey hey, are you both talking?" I looked at her and got no response. She wore a dirty look on her face for me.
"All right, I'm leaving. Are you guys talking? If yes, then i'm leaving. Are you talking?" I heard a feeble 'No' and she repeated it a few times. I climbed the stairs, crossed the entrance hall and was about to leave the building, when I saw someone in front of me call someone behind me. I turned back and saw her walking towards me. Her friend had come to this exhibition(i donno from where and why?!).
"I've come to pick you up. So, how was the general response? I'm sure you'd be a sensation. People have been talking about you and appreciating your work lately." her friend said.
"It was fine. Seems like some people just don't know what's happening around them." she said and turned to look at me.
I was frustrated at this and turned away. I heard her friend ask, "Do you know him? Is he a friend?"
Something got into me and I ran towards them. Panting, I said, "Yes, I am a friend and I promise I'd bring her back."
Her friend was puzzled and looked at her with inquiring eyes, with a look of what-do-you-want-to-do.
I said, "Please don't go away so early. We are meeting after 2 years and... I'm sorry if I have done something wrong. Please stay with me!"
Her friend had to drive back, alone.
"You never told me you were an artist. I thought you were always into science and more science." I exclaimed and rather excited about it.
"You should have known. I have been exhibiting a lot of my paintings lately and its' also in the news." she said coldly.
"I am new to this place! Today is my second day... and this building you see," I pointed towards the college building where the exhibition was going on. We were standing outside the gate.
"that building is not my college building. I have traveled 300 kms just to meet you, after I came to know that you were here. My college is organizing it, not hosting it. So don't think I never wanted to meet you in the last two years. I always wanted to meet you... and yeah, I hate reading newspapers!"
She wanted to say something but she didn't. Maybe she was feeling guilty for all the misunderstanding. I looked at her and as she turned to look at me, I looked at the trees (what an ass I was) !!
Finally a bus came and I asked him if he could accommodate us.
"Sorry, there's no space!"
"But I travel everyday in this bus?"
"Timings changed! No vacancy."
And so we didn't get any mode of transportation. Meanwhile we started talking about our lives and about past two years. It was great to be with her again.
After an hour, she said, "Would you mind walking?"
"Not at all," I said. It was getting dark and we walked on the pavement. I was surprised to find no vehicle on the road, except for those who had come to see the exhibition. But moving a little away, we did find a few auto-rickshaws and buses, but I guess she just wanted to walk and talk. I've always wanted this, always wanted to meet her again and spend maximum time with her. So we walked and walked and disappeared into the darkness.
