I got tagged by my sis, Alka and I need to share three of my dreams. When I thought more about it, it seems I get mild nightmares more than pleasant dreams! But how can I ignore a tag by my sis, so here I go.
1.This is probably the worst of the lot. Sometimes, I dream that I am getting chased by gun totting man/men. What makes it even worse is that many times, I see both Alka and I being chased together. Rarely do I dream that I am hiding/running alone. And this one never ends. I just wake up in the middle, after what seems like ages of running around. And the relief when I realize that it was only a dream is enormous.
2. This one is mildly related to travel. I dream that Sesha and I are going somewhere together. Sometimes, it is a bus and sometimes it is a train. He gets down somewhere and I am left alone. The vehicle starts moving and he is unable to board it in time. There was a time when I used to get this one frequently but now the frequency has gone down.1. These are the mildest but the most irritating set of dreams. Look at the picture above. Can you ever imagine such a landscape inducing nightmares, even the mild ones? This time when I was in Sikkim, for two days I dreamed that I have to take a class and I knew not what to teach. And there are various variations to this one, and they come with vengeance when I am in the hills. While I was doing the Kuari Pass trek for two days I was dreaming that I was still a Ph.D. student and I have to submit my thesis and it is just not happening. Then for the next few days the dream was some exam I was taking and I was doing badly. I really hate the fact that these dreams come to me when I am in most beautiful surroundings and really do not have a care in this world. And I hate the ‘not able to submit the Ph.D.’ one most. Now that I have been teaching for a few years, I guess it is about time I started dreaming about grading copies rather than writing exams and submitting the Ph.D.
