One dream that you remember, is a Blogadda, write over weekend prompt.What’s it about dreams that make me happy?
Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity – Khalil Gibran.
I have a dream.
Traveling by wishing.No packing, unpacking, booking tickets, nothing.No money worries, no hair tearing discussion about taking leave or getting late for the flight.
Only the fun of seeing new places, meeting new people and relaxing!
Long back when I was a child we could hardly afford frequent travel.Rarely once every 4 or 5 years.Studies, money troubles all made travel the least important priority.
The first thing I did when I got my first salary at Safdarjung Hospital was getting a fourteen inch Samsung Television.I still have it and it keeps reminding me what was and where I have come from.It also helped me travel vicariously through those glorious travel shows.
The next thing I did was plan trip to Shimla.The family traveled from Kolkata to Delhi.
I booked the Shatabdi to Kalka.But one thing was undecided.
How to reach the weird Nizamuddin station at 4 am at night?It was Delhi and we were females!God’s blessing and a kind elderly auto-driver helped when Ola and Uber were unheard of.Hiring a car was not in the budget!Thus my dream was a recurring one.
My dream has two very different sources of inspiration.The famous Goopi Bagha movie series by Satyajit Ray is the direct inspiration.In the movie, the two unlikely heroes get the gift of traveling anywhere, by wearing their magic slippers and wishing together while giving a high five!How cool is that?
While Harry Potter’s method of apparating, explained the hidden dangers and made it appear all the more possible.
Imagine wishing and blinking hard and you appear at your chosen destination.What fun if things would be as easy as that, with none of the risks of turning up without an ear or a nose.
I so wish scientists would discover special travel pods which could make this possible.A single pod and family pod.With options of zooming or zipping.Of one blink or two blinks.
The only payment needed would be your desire to travel and wishing really hard.Also, it could be linked to your Aadhar of good deeds and kind acts!
Clap your hands.
Wish hard and zoom!
Is this a dream.Is it wishful thinking?But isn’t all fiction and dream based on reality?
Maybe one day.
Have you ever dreamt an impossible dream?This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by Blogadda.
