DREAMzzzzz .. 2

"All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream."
                      ~EDGAR ALLAN POE

Her glorious eyes gave their way to the dark spots, that were gradually invading her beauty. Her sensual smile was no more her friend, as she can’t even risk straining the 17 muscles at the stage of anguish and despair. Her velvety hair, which was the stroke to the canvas of for the beautiful scenic of her face was completely shed off. But with the little love from me and lots of willing power from her, in fighting the cancer, she looked immortally pretty. I hugged her and said…

…just when my mom woke me up and asked “Why were you hugging the pillow and crying?” I gave a stale excuse to her to escape from the situation, but that dream kept haunting me, not because it may come true, but because there’s no change of it being true. I have no girl friend at all! I went to a dream interpreter and he said “In the dream, you were yourself. That girl was your heart. Cancer was your life! The lack of self motivation and self belief of you in real life gave rise to some abstract thoughts in your brain, which were supressed for so long, until they broke out into a nightmare and tried to make you realize your negative shades.”

Hmmm… Dreamy, right? I too was amazed over this interpretation and thought of posting some interesting and common interpretations.

Dream Interpretations: 
  •  One of the most common dream, widely accepted, is the ‘tooth dream’. People dream of losing their teeth and sometimes hair. It’s actually not about your body parts alone. It’s about the higher preference you give towards your beauty and fear of getting old and death.
  •  Chase Dreams-In such dreams, the scenario often features you being pursued by an attacker, an animal, a monster or an unknown figure, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. Consequently, you run, you hide or you try to outwit your pursuer. Your actions in the dream parallel how you would respond to pressure and cope with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting the situation, your dream indicates that you have a tendency to run away and avoid the issue. Ask yourself who is chasing you, so that you can gain a better understanding and insight on the source of your fears and anxieties.

The pursuer or attacker who is chasing you in your dream may also represent an aspect of yourself. Your own feelings of anger, jealousy, fear, and possibly love, can manifest itself as the threatening figure. Or the shadowy figure can symbolize the rejected characteristics of your Self. You may be projecting these feelings onto the unknown chaser. Next time you have a dream of being chased, turn around and confront your pursuer. Ask them why they are chasing you. What are you trying to run from?

  • If you are flying with ease and are enjoying the scene and landscape below, then it suggests that you are on top of a situation. You have risen above something. It may also mean that you have gained a new and different perspective on things. Flying dreams and the ability to control your flight is representative of your own personal sense of power.
  • You have lost your foothold and keep up with the hustle and bustle of daily life. When you fall, there is nothing that you can hold on to. You more or less are forced toward this downward motion without any control. This lost of control may parallel a waking situation in your life
  • To dream that you are taking an exam, indicates that you are being put to the test or being scrutinized in some way. These dreams highlight some anxiety or agitation that you are experiencing in your waking life


5 Things You Should know about Inception(only if you’re interested)

 The idea for Inception began with Christopher Nolan about eight years prior to the film. He became fascinated with thoughts of how dreams are created in your own mind, as you experience it. The script didn’t just sit in a drawer, it changed every couple of years; Nolan would go back to it and make revisions. Though written from his own experiences of dreaming, the director felt there were certain things that were common to peoples’ dreams and those are what he incorporated, like the kick—the idea of falling when dreaming.

2.Nolan said the flood in the castle was a challenge for Cobold to put on film, putting the performers in the middle of a very real and powerful event. Corbould had a plan to use big metal shipping containers full of water, using a dump tank method to do the scene. But it became immediately apparent that they wouldn’t be able to have the actors anywhere near it, let alone the stunt performers. What the Effect Supervisor and his people came up with was “an extremely clever method of using air cans.” Corbould explained that the flooding was achieved by using underground pressurized containers which were hit sequentially (forcing water out of containers up over the set). Because the water was coming from about 20 feet above, it created the impression of a wave coming towards camera. They wanted an atomized look, rather than a big dump of water and as Corbould explained, it’s a shot you have to get right the first time.

3.The zero-gravity hallway fight scenes were achieved by using “…massive, rotating sets that twisted and turned and forced Gordon-Levitt to maneuver with utmost caution. Five-hundred crew-members were involved in the scene, which took a full three weeks to complete.” The sets were built in a London airplane hangar, including a horizontal hallway that rotated 360 degrees, a vertical one and a set with steel trolleys to which the actors were attached by wires (later erased using visual effects).

4. At the Paris bistro (actually a small bakery) where a massive explosion takes place, high-pressure nitrogen was used to create the effect (real explosives were not permitted). Wally Pfister used six high-speed cameras (filmed at the highest possible frame rate, because Nolan wanted the explosions at the most extreme slow motion) to capture the sequence from different angles. Flying debris and further destruction was later added (using visual effects).

5. The van scene was shot at LA’s Commodore Schuyler F. Heim Bridge; the part where the van goes off the bridge was completed by shooting a van from a cannon. For the underwater portions of the scene, Cillian Murphy spoke of the challenge of not panicking, saying they had to hold their breath for “four or five minutes” in between breathing from scuba tanks.

“The flames are silent,
peace is violent,
tears are frozen,
'cause massacre was chosen.”

26 Nov’, 2008;
Location: Leopold Cafe
Time: 08:30pm.

...there she laid, living her last moments, in my arms. She was trying hard to say something. After some struggle, she whispered, with a smile on her face “Hope you got the answer”. Without any hesitation, I took the ring lying on the floor, amidst the pool of blood and put it on her finger, saying “Our souls are united. We shall be one, in life and after death.” Tears flowed down her eyes. Slowly, she leaned forward to kiss me. As our lips touched, she left her last breath. My heart sank, and with it disappeared my dreams. The entire sight was disgusting to see and unforgettable to feel. Tens of bodies lie down dead and hundreds came grieving for their loved ones. While I was living the most terrible moments of my life, I got a phone call from our department ordering our team to regroup and I left everything to attend my duties as an assistant police inspector under the leadership of Mr.Hemant Karkare sir and did it as soon as possible.

“Assistant Police Inspector, Jadhav, reporting sir”, this salute being my most emotional of all   

27th Nov, 2008.
Place: Near Crime Branch Office.

Our operation became extremely difficult. Darkness caused us more problems along with the fact that terrorists were well prepared and had been planning this for months. We left a couple of constables at the back entrance of the Cama and Albless Hospital and even refused to take a driver with us as it may cost the life of another innocent person. Salaskar took over the driver’s seat. With the information we got over a wireless, we came to know that terrorists were hiding behind a red car near the ATM. That’s it. No turning back. We are going to live (or probably die) the most prestigious moments of our lives. We hugged each other, probably for the last time and raced towards the car. As my body is approaching the persons who shattered the lives of Mumbai, my heart was approaching the person who beautifully built the life of mine….

Place: My Home,
Time: 02:00 pm.

I was doing my favorite past time- watching her eyes. Ananya, was my friend and I need not say best, because she was the only friends I ever had and not to mention, she had the most beautiful pair of eyes in the entire world. With a thick line of Kohl, under her eyes and thin strand of hair over her eyes, her beauty was immortal and inexpressible. 

   “Hey An, I wanna take you to the dinner” I said, finally breaking the silence.

   “Oooh. So Mr. Busy changed to Mr. Romantic today! What a pleasant surprise. Think over it” she laughed. 

  “No more thoughts, this is final. Leopold Café, 8 o clock” I said, thinking about the little time left to reharse my proposal!

The bleeping Radar brought me back into my senses. As we approached the Rang Bhavan, we saw a terrorist running towards the car. Our team opened fire immediately and successfully injured the terrorist on the arm, causing him to drop his AK 47. As we started getting down the car, a second terrorist appeared and fired back. Everyone died on the spot, except me, being on the rear side of the car! Again, insane murders happened, this time right in front of my eyes and I was helpless! As the terrorists approached our vehicle, I laid down, acting dead. They took the bodies and dumped on the road. They headed towards metro and when I tried to follow them, I was not able to walk, due to severe injuries above the knees. I lost my team, entire team. My thoughts went back to the moment when I lost my team…

Place:  Leopold Café
Time: 08:00 pm

“Are you gonna talk or just stand staring at me” she giggled.

I knelt down on my knees and started taking out a ring from pocket

“Come on yaar, don’t start being too filmy” she shouted in excitement.

 “An, you were the only friend in my life. You are my only love and will be, forever. Do you accept to be my better half and complete me?” I proposed expecting a yes or less probably a no.

But never did I expect that bullet would be an answer. It went right into the heart of Ananya and my heart sank! I was cursing myself. “If only I had proposed standing it would have hit me and my heart (An) would be still alive.”

As I laid down beside my dead team members, I crawled to the mobile and called the headquarters. Kasab was caught alive after 2 days, thanks to the every soldier who fought and lived this hell of a situation to make our Mumbai a heaven again and salutes to every soldier who sacrificed their lives so that millions of people can happily live theirs.

29th NOV, 2008:

   I saw Ananya again, in every life we’ve saved and felt her beautiful smile in every face of Mumbai… May be she’s really smiling, from heaven.


  •  Later, Kasab was caught alive, salutes to the officers who sacrificed their lives in the process. 

  •  Hemant Karkare (12 December 1954 – 26 November 2008) was the chief of the Mumbai Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS). He was killed during the 2008 Mumbai attacks after being shot three times in the chest.  His bravery was honoured generously with the Ashoka Chakra on 26 January 2009.
  • 164 people died in these attacks and so many police officers sacrificed their lives in the attacks. And our great jurisdiction is feeding Kasab with the best quality food and making this 24 year old, a celebrity, rather than a terrorist!
  •    Political leaders were highly criticised after the attacks, saying that their ineptness was partly responsible. The Times of India commented on its front page that "Our politicians fiddle as innocents die."
