Where do you want to go?

  • Sometimes I wonder, I have never thought of myself as an insightful person. There have been a lot of times where I dream about so many things. I feel there are things out there which no one can explain.

  • “Why do I dream?”

  • “Who tells me to dream?”

  • “Do I know if my dreams will ever be fulfilled?”

  • I know these are the questions all of us might have asked ourselves time and again. A lot of time we never find the answers to these questions. There was a time when we were all young, in our mind in our soul. But there are times when we feel lost, and our mind starts ageing. These are the times when we forget our dreams.

  • John Lennon was a dreamer and he said all of us can be dreamers too. There was a time when I was a child, my dreams were big. Bigger than my life. That is how I thought life should be and that is how I have always realized life to be. Sometimes I feel when we grow up we forget to live life the way it should be. We get caught in a rut. We stop thinking about the beauty in our heart. We stop getting those butterflies in our stomach. We all grow up to become something we never should have.

  • I remember the time when I dreamt of flying airplanes, traveling across different countries, becoming a Prince somewhere in a lost land of the eternity. All these dreams are so long gone. Forgotten for a cause that has no meaning. Forgotten in the hope of achieving something in this ‘New Age.’ An age of material pursuits and sickness. There was a time when I knew I wanted to be free and happy. I knew I had to play all my life. There was a time when I was lost, yet was clear in my thought.

  • All that is lost now, for the time has come to sit and think once again.

  • “Where do you want to go?”

  • “Where do you want to go, Srini, where do you want to go?”
