How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry. I will expl

Human Dreams

Just by glancing at the title, you would say it's about castles in the air or pie in the sky. If you think that, I would say you are wrong. Then what is it? Well, it's about the transition from fully conscious to subconscious/unconscious phase. And such a phase/transition happens/takes place when we are asleep, especially when someone is out for the count. I have felt this transition innumerable times and as a matter of fact, I have tried to stop it on multiple occasions. When the transition is about to happen or has already taken place, it feels like turbulence. Your heart starts pounding really fast and it takes you to a world you may have been to but you are just not aware of it or puts you in front of people that have been caught by your eye but you may not know in person. 

Well, it's very onerous to understand the intricacies of dreams. We don't remember most of the dreams we experience/see, as such events happen in our subconscious mind. As I said most, in some cases it's hard to forget a dream because you feel like it has happened to you before; Deja vu is what we term it. The best way to record a dream is to keep a diary. Take a note of all the things you observed while you were dreaming/in your utopian world. Now, everyone/everything has two aspects associated with him/it. Let's just not write the BAD one first. 

The very positive people tend to think about positive things and thus, happen to get sweet dreams. In most cases, even mine, dreams are not very pleasant. Sometimes it scares the bejesus out of us and we wake up in a deplorable shape. Such dreams are more specifically termed Nightmares. We even wish for it to not happen to us in reality. We straightaway go to God and pray for ourselves. Dreams are nothing but different frames put together from different time frames or just a manifestation/interpretation of our thoughts, either pleasant or unpleasant. The people who are no longer with us tend to appear in our dreams just because a few years agone you spent time with them. And we say that they have come to meet us. But that's not likely the case. 

Our brain is like a long photographic reel and whatever our eyes capture/click, it gets printed on that photographic reel. It may peter out after some time. After all, it's very difficult to remember "Hamlet" by just going through it once. Our brain can process the information by just going through it but to save the information we need to go through it multiple times. Nightmares are not only caused when you are in sound sleep/deep sleep but also due to your underlying problems or mental conditions. For example, if you are stressed/gloomy or had a fight with someone this morning, it is likely the case that you would be tormented by Nightmares. If you want to understand dreams, you will have to understand psychology first. Sometimes the events going at the back of your mind haunt you in the form of nightmares and you think it's something else but it's not. They are just the projections of your mental state. You may think I have gotten off the track. But I haven't. Nightmares are nothing but bad dreams. So we are just discussing the negative aspect of dreams.

Let's have a look at the nightmares/bad dreams that I had in the past couple of years:

Dream #1:
I was in a pool and a big fat round man was trying to get a hold of me. I panicked and started swimming to the other side of the pool with him on my tail. Overwrought and out of options, I came to consciousness with my heart pounding very fast. 

Dream #2:
On multiple occasions, I was bitten by a snake. Hindus believe that if a snake bites you in your dreams, you should worship Lord Shiva. It indicates that you are the victim of someone's critical or 'biting' remarks. It is similar to the thought that you get when you cut your tongue.

Dream #3:
I remember being bitten by a dog once in my dream. As a dog is considered loyal and being bitten by a dog signifies someone's disloyalty towards you. 

Dream #4:
It turned out to be a long night when I once dreamt of a black cat. She bit me and no doubt, why cats are called intrepid creatures. They fear none. 

Dream #5:
You must have come across the word acrophobia. What is it? It is the fear of heights. I am sure that most of you have had dreams of falling from high altitude. I don't know about you but I have had such a dream a ton of times. Every time I happen to have such a dream, I find myself standing on a platform, which is at a certain height from the ground and when I try to walk on it, I end up falling. In reality, I am not acrophobic. 

Dream #6:
Have you ever been haunted/daunted by number 13? Yes, you heard it right. The fear of number thirteen is called triskaidekaphobia. It was one of the nights and the Telly was on. I picked up the remote and started changing the channels. I was looking forward to watching a movie and came across 13B. At that time, I thought of it as a horror cum thriller movie and if I watch it today, it won't even scare my shadow. Once I was done watching it, the fear of number 13 daunted me for a couple of nights. I was getting nightmares about it. Every time I had that dream, I was placed in an apartment numbered 13. There is no doubt about the fact that the number 13 is controversial. You may not know it, but Chandigarh does not have sector 13 because at the time when it was being built the city architect Le Corbusier considered the number 13 as unlucky

Well, I had good dreams too:

Dream #7:
Flying in an airplane in a dream is considered good. It signifies success/ that something good is coming your way.

Dream #8:
I have even had dreams of me passing my examinations with flying colors, which is one of the signs of success.

Dream #9:
When I was a kid, I adored the thought of uniting with my cousins and thought of going to my maternal grandma's house. I have had such dreams too where I unite with my cousins and am seen playing with them. 

Dream #10:
From the beginning, I am habituated to playing cricket and the thought of becoming a good player has always been at the back of my mind. I have had dreams where I am seen batting really well. 

Dream #11:
The thought of becoming successful and big has always been first on my list. In a few of my dreams, I saw myself holding top positions and instructing people what to do and what to not.

Dream #12:
From my childhood, I have had a craze for cars and motorbikes. In several of my dreams, I was seen racing.
