Is this it.........?

(Courtesy: Internet)
Standing at the door step ready to leave; suddenly there were gray clouds passing by in front of my eyes, that’s right not above but right in front of my eyes. There were high rise buildings from different countries, schools, parks etc passing by in that cloud. Shocked out of my wits I could not understand what is happening. This went on for 5 mins and then suddenly calm prevailed; not knowing what to do went to wash my face and then leave with my father. Everyone at home was in a trance and was not even talking about what just happened. Each one of us thought it must have definitely been an illusion. Suddenly it started again; this time outside you could see livestock and other things flying in the air and inside the house there were vessels and clothes flying in the air and the entire house was rocking like a cradle. All of us started screaming that it was an earthquake but inside our hearts we were thinking is this the end. Is this what is called the ‘Pralay’ or ‘The end of the world’?

My phone alarm rang. I woke up from my sleep. Thank god this was a dream. But was it so, it was an early morning one which people say comes true. Ok, now that’s superstitious, but is it so?

As I was awake was doing dream analysis of what I just saw. Normally once I get up I forget my dreams it so this time I was going on replaying it in my mind so that I don’t forget it. So I must have dreamt this because the year is coming to an end, and 2012 is deemed as the year the world is going to end. It’s the fear that would have crept into my subconscious for sure that translated into a dream.

Am sure it’s not just for me but for most people that this thought keeps coming to my mind. This phenomenon has been so strong that this year has seen books and movies keeping this in mind. Though now people are doing a lot of wishful thinking telling that it won’t happen which again can be taken in 2 ways. One, it’s a form of defensive mechanism of denial to think that you deny it and it won’t happen. Second, of course it’s logically true about how can you just go about believing a calendar ending as the end of world, when the various streams of science across the globe put together that are so advanced don’t see that coming.

For me definitely I would want to be in the second category and would want to believe that probably it’s the time for a new world or new awakening but not the end of the world as we see it now. Of course religiously speaking there is no reason to fear the end of the world too as the world itself is a ‘Maya’- and illusion and ending it would mean getting closer to god.

However, inspite of all that I would like to end the year with lots of hopes and dreams for the coming years. Also the biggest hope for the New awakened world.

Though a nagging small thought would still be at the back of my mind ‘Is this it?’


  1. I liked your thought that this would be the beginning of a new world and that the imperfect world of today will come to an end this year.

    Happy new Year and a big hug!

  2. Thanks Zephyr

    A happy new year to you and your family too.

  3. The 'dream-in-the-morning-cumin-true' thing doesn't work - I've been dreamin bout Katrina for so many mornings nw n the closest I cud get to my dream ws her breakin up with Sallu :)

    I strongly think tht the Mayan guy who wrote tht calender/scroll/prophesy just simply ran out of ink or paper or sumthin after finished the chapter on 2011.. or maybe the dude just changed jobs after he wrote bout 2011 n since it was cost cuttin season at his company thn, they simply never hired anyone new to complete whtvr he started... so we hv his unfinished work which is only till 2011 n we're all freaked out bout it.. if it ws today, we cud hv definitely escalated the matter to his boss..but alas!

    Here's to brand New fabulous Year in 2012.. n my guess is '13, however unlucky it may b to many, it's still gonna happen ;)

    Here's wishing u n urs a fabulous n prosperous New Year in 2012..

    Happy New Year Sowmzz:)

  4. Your sense of humour brought out the best analogy of this phenomenon....Love it.

    A very happy new year to you dude.

  5. Thank god, early morning dreams doesn't come true.

    Very Nice post. <3

  6. It gave me goosebumps after reading. I was hoping initially it would be fiction. Since you told it was a dream it felt spooky. As far as dreams are concerned they are as good as fiction coz they don't happen for real and that is the reason they are called dreams. Also did you see Delhi 6 before know there is a scene of Liberty and Delhi together :)

  7. Actually that dream gave me goosebumps that's why i had to read it......Please mujhe paagal kutte ne kaata hai kee mein Delhi 6 phir se dekhoongi.....ek baar hee too much tha......and i only remember the pigeon and the bandar in the movie no other scene:-)

  8. Good one! Very nicely you are taking us to the positive conclusion. (But then the last question...?)

  9. Hi, Really great effort. Everyone must read this article. Thanks for sharing.
