The Dream Series -1

Friday, 24 February 2012
This is not my story.It's something my friend wide eyedly mentioned to me back in those gossip days of school about her mom's friend's friend. Gasp.Long link eh? :)


Here was her story. 


There was in this far far away place a Gujarati girl who is again my friend's mom's friends' friend :P She did her Bachelors in Arts which was by Indian Standards not a professional and happening course. Now,of course it's gained momentum ,thanks to the multi faceted fashion designers ,artists,interior designers who qualify for that. She met this guy and they in typical Bollywood Ishtyle got married.Mind you They ran away and got married. Thinking *shame shame puppy shame*? Don't. Yet.



She was good at writing.Kept sending her write ups to local newspapers in Gujju land. Once she attained the status of an eloquent writer. She felt the urge to continue.She did .In a few more years ,she slowly started appearing on weekly columns in India's then national paper The Times Of India . Yes,exactly like you expected she won many hearts and many a laurels .And once, just once she wrote for a fashion magazine in the UK and it became an instant hit among it's editors.They were dying to have her right away. And 4 years back,She was the editor of a leading fashion magazine in London




So, what do you think? Have you made mistakes in life.That does NOT haze one's eyes and mind to give up dreaming. Let's forever dream. You know what, when we dream often, we unconsciously end up working towards it. Just don't sleep off like a sloth eating away your cushion covers.Keep abreast of what people do around you. Have a living goal in life. Dream.




Cya dreamers ;)
