Dreams Do Come True
I was a little girl, alone in my little world,
Who dreamed of a little home, for me,
I played pretend between the trees,
And fed my house guests sparkling leaves, and laughed in my pretty bed of green,
I had a dream, I could fly from the highest wing, I had a dream….
These happen to be the soul soothing lyrics, from a song called ‘Dream’ by Priscilla Ahn. This song although not very popular, speaks of a message that all of those little girls and little boys have experienced, at least once in their childhoods. We all have dreams, it’s scientifically proven that every single person on earth has dreams, both literal as well as metaphorical.
Let’s take some historical context over here, India’s struggle for independence. This was a two hundred year long struggle, etched with just one dream, to have freedom, integrity and to be free from the shackles of being a colony. Even as the clock struck 12 midnight, on the day of our independence, our Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru spoke of a tryst with destiny and the dream of a free and independent country and its people.
Now let’s talk about the most famous speech about a dream, of a great man, Martin Luther King. He happened to be the champion of the rights of the African Americans and fought for their equal rights. He is most acknowledged for the famous words of his speech at the Washington Memorial, “I have a dream…” The coming years would soon be a realization of that very dream and equal treatment of all those African Americans and the abolishment of slavery.
There are so many of us who wait for that moment, that very moment which will be the sure shot point, of meeting of our dreams and reality. Many dream about having a great and successful career, most of fame and money, few about the fulfillment of their souls and lastly, the whole world dreams about making their dreams come true. If you look at it this way, the start-up generation, which has come in to being today, was at some point someone’s dream. Now can you even imagine the present times, without the use of applications like Apple, Facebook, Ola, Uber or various other websites? These also happened to be dreams at one point in time.
Clearly this means, that history is witness to the fact, that if you dream and work towards your dream, you will definitely be able to make those dreams come true. Take Sachin Tendulkar for example, he was just a mere teenager, with great dreams of playing for his country. Today, so many years later, he is considered the god of cricket and surely every single person, revers him. Shah Rukh Khan, who happened to begin his career through theatre and came from a middle class family, just like us normal people. He is today the king of Bollywood and rightly so has earned his place and wealth. There are so many more examples, following the very same ideology, Rajanikanth, Amitabh Bachan, and Vincent Van Gogh who used to paint whatever he dreamed of, Rahul Dravid, the list of those go-getters is endless.
So there’s one thing that kind of is proven true here that if you have the courage to dream, you will definitely have the will to work towards your dreams. Because finally at the end of the day, these very dreams definitely do come true!
