A Short but Meaningful Story of Dreams…!

The Story is about Three Hindu Men, Part Nomads Part Saints, who are devoted to the thought of finding God on their Search Trip across India. Obviously None of them is Earning & depend upon Whatever Food is offered to them by Virtue of Gift & at times as Alms! The Food offered to them was Rarely Lavish & Normally used to be Chapati’s (Flat Bread), Dal (Home Cooked Pulses) or Khichdi (Vegeterian Kedgeree).

One day across the outskirts of Varanasi, A Rich man saw them & came to ask for their Blessings, as he was planning to venture into a New Business, He Offered them Home Made Kheer, A Local Indian Sweet dish, relished across all genres of People in India. The Kheer was about Half a Bowl.

When the 3 Men thought of Eating it, they concluded it was too less to fulfill the tastebuds of all 3 & was infact, only enough to satisfy the Tastebuds of one of them. So they finally decided, that All 3 would sleep over & in the Morning, discuss their dreams. The One with the Most Beautiful Dream would get to eat the Kheer.

The Three of them try dozing off, but to no avail due to an empty stomach, So, in a Queer resolute, the 1st one Gets up & goes Riverside to imagine what he would tell the other 2 about his dream, in calmness & without the Noise of Snore, Soon after the 2nd one, decides to walk up the hill, to gather his thoughts & Paint his Dream beautifully, with words offcourse. The 3rd manages to sleep for a littlewhile but His Sleep is somewhat distraught too, So After a while, The 3rd one, who’s also the youngest decides to get up & when he sees that both his compatriots arent there, He in the Wake of Hunger, Eats the Kheer, wipes his face clean & puts back the Lid on the Bowl as it was & Sleeps Peacefully with a full stomach.

The Next Morning, When all three Wake up, after what seemed a Long Long Night & Anticipating to Savour the Taste of the Sweet Dish, they all sit down, do their Morning chores, Do their Prayers & sit over to discuss their Dreams…

The 1st to Narrate his Dream is the one who went towards the Riverside, He Begins “I had the Best Dream Yesternight, My Loved Deity, Ram came in my Dreams yesternight & I had the Pleasure of His Darshan, then he asked me What do you Wish my Son?.. to which I Replied, I wish to see Ayodhya & do Darshan of Sita Mata & see the Beautiful Countryside of my Beloved Deity, Shri Ram. Shri Ram said Tathastu (I Grant your Wish) and took me away to Ayodhya, where I Saw Pristine Happiness amongst the Countrymen, Hugged Brother Laxman & Bharat, and Greeted Sita Maiyya. I had such a Great time & am sure I have the Best Dream Ever.” As He Finished Narrating the Dream & Exuberantly Happy with it, he started to lean towards the Bowl of Kheer, to Grab & Eat it.

The 2nd one interrupted his Moment of Glory & said “You did Indeed have a Good Dream, but you guys Must Hear mine as it is the Best of them all”. He Further Began Narrating his Dream.. “In My Dream came the Most Enchanting & My Beloved Deity, Lord Krishna. He asked me What do you want to see?, I Replied that I wish to see His Virat Swaroop, followed by a Visit to Mathura, He Granted me the Wish & 1st showed me the Virat Roop, and then took me amidst the Gopi’s & the Serene Mathura, where I heard the chirruping of birds to Kanha’s symhony on the flute & Gopi’s dancing in a Trance to it. I had the best time ever..”

After, hearing this Narration, All eyes were at the 3rd one, He Calmly but Confidently began narrating his.. “I was awakened in my Dream by the Almighty Hanuman, the Deity I have such Strong Belief & Love for, He Woke me up & told me that He’s gonna make this Dream worth its way in Gold. Lord Hanuman, quickly blessed me & told me to Drink the Kheer, as it was full of his Vitality & Warmth, I intermittently asked that even my Friends wanted to Eat this, to which he Replied, One of them is with Prabhu Shri Ram & The Other one with Lord Krishna having the Best time of their Life, this Kheer is Paltry to the Joy they are experiencing, also, it was Blessed with Hanuman ji’s Vitality, Strength & Warmth and I was Refusing it? Hanuman ji asked me with Raised eyebrows, “Don’t you believe me??” How Could I Say No to the Almighty Wishes & thus I Drank”, Opening the Lid on the Bowl of Kheer & showing the empty Bowl…

The Remaining Two, with a Feeling of Disdain but not having an Answer to him, looked up & accepted the Order of the Day, with a Shake of the Head.  This Story teaches us the following, Being Street Smart i.e. Being Articulate & Smart enough to Manage things in a difficult situation & moving them towards one’s own advantage very tactfully & diplomatically, A Virtue quintessential to getting things done in the Current Worldly Scenario. It also Teaches us that We Shouldn’t only Dream, Dream of Action isnt Enough, Finding a Way to Paint your Dream in Reality is most important. Those who find a Way to Make their Dream a Reality are the ones who actually win, Others just keep Dreaming!! 😉 So, Dont Just Dream it.. Do It!!
