Well, if you speak of dreams then I must say that I have made a notion about it based on the twenty two years I have spent on Earth.
Dreams can be lethal accompanied with overambition. They can change world if endorsed by hard work and a little practicality. Or it can simply remain futile as a dormant seedling if never nourished with hard work and sacrifice.
I met Sudha Murthy
(chairperson of the Infosys Foundation) yesterday and listened to her story of uplifting the lives of 3000 Devdasis from the muck of sex work in Karnataka. I am impelled to think how a dream as humongous and noble as this can be turned into reality.
A few lines had penetrated so deep into my mind that I still can’t stop thinking about it. “You live in a dream world – a haze of poetry and fuzzy ideas about revolution. To build something is not the same thing as dreaming of it: building is always a matter of well-chosen compromises.” I first had read this on Matheikal’s blog
. Inspired by it, I read the book, The Hungry Tide
. One thing that enervates me is the fear of being eaten up by a Utopian dream which yields into nothing and costs you your entire life.
Dreams are not always meant to metamorphose into reality. However, the dreams which do are to be taken seriously and handled very carefully… for it’s easy to fancy, to fall into abyss but very difficult to make careful choices and compromises for the greater cause.
