The actual meaning of dream is - a series of events or images that happen in your mind when you are sleeping.
And the actual meaning of reality is - the state of things as they are, rather than as they are imagined to be.
Both the words have very crucial connection in our life. When we start our life we start dreaming quite a lot. We dream about our future…what we want to become in life…what we want to achieve…At that moment we are farm believer that sky is the limit and we can achieve whatever we dream for. Nothing is impossible or as we say I am possible. We are youth and surely we have the license for dream big. Sometimes as over confident we ignore our parents advice and tried to stick to our dreams or our future goals. We never see the other side of the coin i.e if we fail to achieve that then what will happen. Is there any plan b for us? Our well wishers always tried to make us understand that but we never give any importance to that.
It is quite funny that when I took elective subject as Biology in class nine I only thought that I will study medical after passing twelve standards. I wanted to become a doctor. I got highest marks 87% in class ten exam in Biology and it gave me enough confidence to peruse my own dream firmly. In class twelve I got around 85% and studied bioscience only to clear the entrance exam and ignoring maths. Always got highest marks in our coaching classes but after perusing for two years I failed to clear the medical entrance. It shattered all my dreams at one blow. I was really confused and I lost all my confidence and wanted to take very bad steps in life…J I discontinued my B-Sc studies from St. Xavier’s
. For three months I stayed at my home without doing anything. It was really a black phase of my life. Due to my parents support I prepared for engineering entrance for only four months. Before those days I never thought of studying engineering. I cleared the test and joined one private institute in Calcutta . From that moment on-wards I never dreamt anymore for the events of my life anymore. I never thought for long term I tried to live on the present. I only concentrated on studies and topped for six consequent semesters or for three years and received the topper position in Computer Science and Engineering stream. I got the job and it is quite good career till date. I never ever thought of these career or profession in my dream. Always dreamt of one medical profession but never thought about plan B. As a result I have to face some very bad and harsh reality in life. But I think the effect is the cumulative results of our effort and thoughts. I think I am lucky enough to pass through that turmoil in my life and it gave me enough confidence now to move forward. Durgapur
Failure is not that you failed to achieve something but failure to me is when you stop to stand up once again and work hard to achieve it in life. The early set back and failure gave me immense mental strength to judge and to set realistic goals in life. As Mr. A.P J. Kalam told we need to think big and to dream to achieve that. Some events occurred in our life because it is destined to do that. But the lesson I learnt by hard way is that always set realistic goals in life and have a plan B in place to move on. Don’t emotionally move to a single direction ignoring everything in life otherwise you will find a dead end. You need to keep in mind that the real world is different place then the dream world. Everyone is competing with everyone…May be in social life …maybe in professional life…The inner strength is very important to continue and move forward as real human being…I tried to learn from the very mistake I have done in life…The answer I got is because of my own action or own thought process I tried to ignore the reality…but end of the day I have to face that …I never blame anyone…I am lonely responsible for my actions both good and bad.
Life is great labeler. It is journey that shows both ups and downs.
We laugh… We cry…We fight…We party…We compete…We play…We learn…We pray..
We think...We fly…We fail…We try…We Work…We Shy…We live in high…
So always think positive in life and face the reality as it comes in open mind. The opportunities lie behind every challenge. It really makes life beautiful.
