A Midsummer Day’s Dream...

Well not really middle of the summer, but summer is here alright. That anyways doesn’t have anything to do with this post. Have you seen Mungeri Lal Ke Hasin Sapne in DD? If not, it is about a guy who gets lost into dreams while he is into some work. And he ends screwing the work up. I kind of empathize with this guy. Probably not as worse, but I have this habit of day dreaming too. I guess we all do to some extent. But there are people like me who do it a lot. Or over-do it if I might say.

Day dreaming is something which comes naturally to everyone. Especially when you are attending a boring lecture or a crap meeting. But I always found it as a great way of living up things that you might never get to do. Suddenly you get transpired into MCG where you are sharing a 200 run partnership with Sachin. The next, you are performing live in a concert along with Rahman. You can become a TV show host, a movie critic, an ad guru and just about anything. And if you are in one of those stupidly romantic moods, then the show will go on for a longer time.

Many a times I end up starting a conversation saying, “I want to ..”. I think that is the problem with too much of day dreaming. I can make a long (XL) list of want TO DOs an Wannabies. If you are lazy then it could add fuel to fire. And suddenly when more than a few people pointed out that it I am over-doing or doing only that, then it put me into the thought mode. Does it really affect the success or the lack of it you attain in life? It sure would if one of these dreams is your goal in life. But what if it is not? Would it still harm you? Should I sit and introspect it ? Or should I do it akaash’s way saying “Who the hell cares where we land up”?

My logic is simple. I am never gonna get to do any of those things in life (secretly hoping for a miracle though). So why not feel happy for that brief period of time. But the trick is to keep that time period to be brief. And what is the trick? … “Pata nahi; Lekin pata chalte hi aap ko hi pehle bataunga”. The comments section is awaiting your thoughts …
