Dream Your Dreams!!!

Maa: Beta tu toh chand ko dekhkar taroon ko chune ki koshish kar raha hai.

Nanhe: Maa! Chand to meri khidki pe roz ata hai. Ekdin chand pe khada hokar main apna tara zarur thod lunga!

Mom: Son! You are trying to touch the stars by looking at the moon.

Nanhe: Mom! The moon comes to my window every night but one day standing on the moon I will pluck my own star!

The above dialogue from the movie “Nanhe Jaisalmer” just touched me and inspired me to no end.Imagination and confidence along with self-belief and hard work is the mantra to make even the impossible possible. If we have got the power to dream then we all have got the power to convert our dreams into reality. And the movie was 100% successful in conveying the message to its audience.

Isn’t it strange how most of the times we fail to realize our dreams just because like the stars it seems too far away from the reach of our hands? But don’t you ever feel that they are an integral part of us and are just within us? The only thing is that we just need to open our eyes to see it, feel it and to realize it. The fact that we can dream is the proof enough of the fact that they can be converted into a reality. Once reaching the moon was an impossible dream but is it impossible anymore? Self belief, faith, confidence and hard work; is there anything else which is needed to realize the dreams.

Around two years ago when I was doing my graduation; it started as a SMS joke in which sperms were fighting with each other. Many a time it happens that we feel let down, depressed, good for nothing and a complete looser. The dreams which we have sown in our eyes reflect nothing but impossibility.

Coming back to the SMS, the moral of it was “whenever you feel low, depressed and useless, just remember that you are the same sperm that once won a battle against a million others.”

Now sit straight for a moment, take a deep breath and repeat with me “whenever you feel low, depressed and useless, just remember that you are the same sperm that once won a battle against a million others.”

Voila! Isn’t it a magic!

Can’t you feel the blood rushing in your nerves out of excitement and new found confidence!

Can’t you see your dreams hanging out side your window waiting desperately for you to touch it and realize it!

How hard could anything else in life be when we have won the biggest battle of winning our very own life even before we were born? Don’t you think our very own existence on this earth is the proof enough of each one of us being a born winner? It’s true that the very onset of our life was a win which makes each one of us a ‘born winner’. And we are celebrating it by every breath we take.

Its natural to feel depressed and helpless but next time before you back out, just think for a minute that you beat millions of others even before you were born, only a few thousands more to go!

Dream…dream…and dream… have faith and give your best to it. One day surely the moon will come to our windows to take us to the sky of our dreams. And that day standing on the moon; with our li’l hands we will pluck our very own star!
