Fol­low your dreams

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Guide - - IN SIGHT -

No dream is too big to re­alise, but it does re­quire com­plete fo­cus to turn it into a re­al­ity.

What so ever may be the dream, it is al­ways good to have dreams of your own. The re­al­ity which is vis­i­ble in to­day's world was a dream one day. Th­ese com­forts and lux­u­ries what we have to­day would not have been pos­si­ble with­out dream­ing.

The per­sons who dreamt of a bet­ter world and a bet­ter life contributed their fo­cused work to re­alise them. Re­al­i­sa­tion of their dream was their success.

Not only they made them­selves happy but they had made other's life more com­fort­able too. For an in­stance, fly­ing of a hu­man be­ing was dream for many. How­ever not many were fo­cused on their dreams ex­cept Wright Brothers (Wil­ber Wright and Orville Wright), who turned the dream of fly­ing of a hu­man be­ing into re­al­ity by mak­ing an air­plane.

From that day on­wards the per­sons who wanted to fly are re­al­is­ing their dream. The best thing in dream­ing is that once your dream is re­alised; it is then shared with many oth­ers.

Now at present the air­plane is not the same as it was when made. The dream of hav­ing com­forts and safety in the air had en­cour­aged many dream­ers to bring re­al­ity to all the hu­man kind.

Now a flyer can even have the ben­e­fit of World Wide Web called in­ter­net at the height of more than 32, 000 feet from the ground while trav­el­ling in an air­plane. So it does mean that to­day's dreams are re­al­ity of to­mor­row. It is never wrong to be a dreamer, there are num­ber of peo­ple in our so­ci­ety who curse the dream­ers. They do not want the in­di­vid­u­als to have dreams, such type of peo­ple pre­tend to be prac­ti­cal but in­side they do know that they are fol­low­ing the dream­ers.

The peo­ple who do not dream are the fol­low­ers of dream­ers. When we buy any prod­uct or con­sume any ser­vices, we are get­ting the re­al­i­ties of dream­ers. Who could have thought in early eight­ies that we would have or­gan­i­sa­tion with­out any bound­aries? See around you and ex­pe­ri­ence whole change, the world has be­come a global vil­lage. Peo­ple are no more strangers to the di­verse cul­tures and civil­i­sa­tions.

The fes­ti­val of one coun­try is cel­e­brated in the whole world. Peo­ple from far coun­tries con­grat­u­late each oth­ers at ev­ery cel­e­brat­ing oc­ca­sion and let oth­ers feel their pres­ence. Be­lieve it or not, this was also a dream of many to be with the loved ones at cel­e­brat­ing oc­ca­sions, but it was not pos­si­ble, but now this is the re­al­ity.

For those who have dreamt must have re­alised by this time that it is not easy to re­alise dreams. It is the tough­est task to do. Peo­ple around us are not very en­cour­ag­ing.

At in­stance no one would be­lieve in your dream. De­spite of repet­i­tive at­tempts, you may not be able to con­vince oth­ers about the re­al­ity of your dream. Peo­ple will force you to drop this dream­ing and many would say that you are a day dreamer.

No won­der they would also alias you as "Sheikh Chilli". But let them speak and not dis­cour­age you. Th­ese ha­tred, ig­no­rance and sar­casm is the food for the dream­ers hunger. At least you must find a per­son or a group of per­sons who sup­port you.

May not they agree with your idea or dream, but their pres­ence would al­ways charge you to fol­low your dreams. That is why it is said that you have to fol­low your dreams. Fol­low ups is the method­ol­ogy that keeps us con­nected with the dream and its essence. In this state here comes the im­por­tance of fo­cus, at­ten­tion, con­cern and hard work.

Re­cently we cel­e­brated the 150th birth­day of Swami Vivekananda. His fol­low­ing lines al­ways in­spire me and I present it to all of you. Swami Vivekananda said "Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life. Think of it, dream of it. Live on that idea. Let it be so great, so strong, that there may be noth­ing else left in the mind; no place for any­thing else, no time for any­thing else. Let the brain, mus­cles, nerves and ev­ery part of your body be full of that idea and just leave ev­ery other idea alone; This the way to success. And this is the way great spir­i­tual giants are pro­duced. Oth­ers are mere talk­ing machines."

Dreams are not for self rather they must be for many. There are num­ber of peo­ple who have dream of their own only, in that sit­u­a­tion they do sac­ri­fice the ben­e­fits of oth­ers. They try to ful­fill it even if their dream is dam­ag­ing oth­ers. There could be many dreams but in this year let us dream for ev­ery­one who ei­ther be­longs or does not be­long to us. Dream for our coun­try, our moth­er­land our In­dia. Ev­ery­one of us must dream for the growth and devel­op­ment of our coun­try. Dream for rel­a­tives, friends and col­leagues. Dream not only for your own ca­reer but oth­ers too. Let us share our dream for the bet­ter fu­ture and don't rest till we turn it into a re­al­ity.
