The Indian Dream
This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 3; the third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following "Blog-a-Ton"
I was very much confused with this subject when I started thinking about writing it! It is so vast subject! What am I going to write? I was thinking about it for whole two days. Yesterday I slept thinking about it only and I had a dream.....
In that dream I was in a room full of people...No...Wait. It was full of many me's. All different creative me's. All me's were busy doing something or other and 'I' me started doing a tour... In dream everything is possible, you see!
First I visited a me who have all different maps of India scattered all over the place. "Indian Dream is not only the dream of Indian people but it can be a dream of some other people as well. We have to take those dreams in consideration as well...." She was saying with feelings. Then she showed me so many maps and explained things about them. It all waved in front of my eyes like this-
I think I missed something she told me about American Indian dream and something else .... But other me's were calling me as well.
The next me was a kind of M.B.A. person. He was making a statistical data with answered questionnaires and all. He had categories like these:-
1) Bollywood stars
2) Hollywood star
3) A Day with a Bollywood star
4) A day with a Hollywood star
5) Becoming a star (Any category from T.V. To films.) or a model
6) Becoming a cricket player of the Indian team
7) A day with a cricketer
8) To be a very rich person a easy way
9) To stay in a very comfortable place where they will get all facilities. Stay in the big cities and metros.
10) Become famous by any means
11) To be happy with family and friend
12) Going abroad for study or service or for staying permanently
Apart from this some weired kind of options were there as well. "These are all the dreams of Indian people. This is what they are taking efforts to achieve. So this is the 'Indian Dream"! Yes this I also got a point. I left her to see the next me.
The third me was having all the photos of reformatories from present and past. He was arranging them with their quotes.
"This is how we should think of the Indian Dream. The Technologically, scientifically, politically ,culturally and economically strong India. India without poverty. India without violence. A self sufficient India. This is what an ideal Indian Dream for all of us. Many in India are still dreaming for such India.
Now actually I saw me writing a post with all this information. Am I really writing this post or am I dreaming? OK. Do not pinch me. I got it. I am really writing this post about my dream of 'THE INDIAN DREAM!'
