Do you believe in God?
Do you believe in Ghost?
Do you believe in Karma?
I guess I believe in all of them. I have not seen either god or ghost, yet I love god and I am hell scared of ghost🙈🙈.While talking about “karma”, I feel everyone gets what he/she deserves, may not immediately but eventually.
Coming back to beliefs,do you feel “dream”has some underneath meaning too?
I read articles about various types of dreams and their meanings. Honestly, I never believed them and did not really follow either.
But something happened in my life once which was like a “State of Shock” kind of experience.
I am really not so certain if dream has some meaning or its just an illusion of our thinking, let’s find out in my real life story.
I was talking to Shreya(Name changed) and we were discussing about our college lives. We both studied engineering from same city, though different colleges. Before engineering, we attended same tuition classes for engineering exams. So, though we were not very close friends yet we had a long history together. We both used to travel by train during semester breaks as we belonged to same university and our exams were at same time.
Shreya was in a relationship since college days only and her boyfriend too studied in the same college, Rishabh( Name changed). After engineering, they did MBA together too and eventually got married.
I got placed in Mumbai after engineering and got settled. Shreya and Rishabh were employed in some MNC in Bangalore too.
I met Shreyas after really really long. In this era of social media,we are updated about each other without meeting for ages. But, girls are girls always, so we started our chatter box immediately after meeting. Our conversation was in full throttle, suddenly, a call came,
“Hello, Shreya here, What !!!! Where is he???”
“How it happened” Shreya screamed in total shock.Someone informed Rishabh met an accident and was with serious injury. We both hurried immediately where he was admitted. The moment we entered the hospital, I got froze !!! Rishabh was no more !!!! I could see his lifeless body lying in front of me !!!
I woke up with a Jerk, sweated and shivering.
For few moments,I could not realise it was a nightmare. I looked at the wall clock, it’s 5AM.
I just sighed off feeling it was just a dream.
Mornings are very busy in office specially on Monday. I reached office and started cleaning my weekend mess of mails. My office boy served my most desired hot cup of tea and I was kind of lost in my work.
Suddenly, I felt the urge to connect with Shreya and just to check if Rishabh is fine. I have not spoken to her like more than 5 years now and I am not so frequent in Facebook either. I remembered seeing her few photographs of someone’s marriage party. Anyways, I did not have her no, I opened Facebook to check her profile and message.
My most “In shock” heart beat I felt within a second. My breathing felt short and Yes, this feeling had no name !!!!
My mobile phone fell down on my desk, I started trembling, I am in total traumatic phase.
Shreya was no more !!!
She passed away couple of months back due to cancer.
No one would believe,while writing this, I am getting goosebumps.
I felt total numb, I was blank and my mind stopped working all sudden.
For almost 10 minutes, I was out of this world.
I got my senses back, dialled my office bestie, she came running and took me downstairs.
It’s a true story, happened to me couple of years back. I clearly remembered the dream I saw a day back. My science, my logic and my philosophy, all took back seat at a moment.
I tried to find out in many ways, to connect these dots. Still searching the answer.
“Dream” is still a mystery for me. I love god and I am scared of ghost like I said. But this incident can’t be a mere coincidence. It has to have some meaning out of it.
Life is very unpredictable and we do not realise until we get our “Epiphany” moment.
I wrote to Rishabh about this nightmare and he replied too.
I have experienced few life death moments in my life and every incident taught a new lesson. Still this “Coincidence” puzzles me always.
Does “Dream” has some underneath meaning!!!
Did “Shreya” wanted to convey some message !!!
Or it’s just a mere illusion of my thoughts!!!
Still thinking and still searching answers.
