I sit infront of the portico
Thinking about my stolen dreams
I never knew who the thief was
Even if I knew,
I never had the courage to face him.
I never wanted to go to that unspoken place
That place where he hid my dreams
That place which was locked tightly using apprehensions.
That place where my dreams took a backseat
That place where dreams considered themselves to be nightmares
That place where dreams were burried alive in a coffin of compromises.
I found the key
The key to my dream yard
The key to my strength
The key to my courage
The key to the rebirth of my dreams
The key to my happy life

Here are my answers to the questions I have been asked :
- What is your hobby other than blogging?
I love to watch all kinds of TV series and listen to songs.
- Which place would you like to visit at least once in your life and why?
It would be London.The reason is pretty much simple, Harry potter.
- Which movie or tv show do you think is the best based on the story and why?
Again,it’s Harry potter.I have lost the count of the number of times I watched the movie.I mean how did J.K.Rowling even imagine that!
- What is your fantasy wish?
It’s weird how all these questions link to Harry Potter.I want to join Hogwarts!

Currently,none.But I want to read A song of ice and fire by George RR Martin.

Well, yes.I think everyone should too.True love that your family shows towards you is a simple proof.

It is the most important thing.No matter what you do, a good complement from someone always gives us the confidence to do better.
- What is the best of your virtues?
I am frank and open-minded.
- Name one food that you would never stop liking ever.
That is a difficult choice.I love food so much that I can’t choose one over the other.

I at least will spend 2 hours on this.I actually have a lot of time.I never had the difficulty in managing.

Not faced it yet.Hope I never face it (touch wood).
I almost forgot.I should nominate now.God help me.
There are a lot of people whom I appreciate.Since I have to nominate only 11, I am nominating the following in no particular order :
The questions are same as mine.
Please let me know if you revert.
It was just another day.
I woke up to my bête noire,alarm’s ring.Got ready and left for college.
En route to college I turned on the FM in my car and as a child, I had this favorite song, that started playing.
I see the blank wall and brought the car to a standstill.
I cruised to the land of nod and I see my mom teaching me how to write.
I could feel the zephyr.My reminiscences piled-up and started flashing one after the other.
I saw my chums with those innocent faces and unsullied hearts.We were playing.What we were playing was not vivid!!
Here comes my daddy with his hands full of toys,cookies and of course my beige tricycle,the thing that I love the most in the world after my parents. Tears coursed down my cheeks.Out of the blue I hear the honking sound and my memory stream takes a pause.
I sighed and said “Only if I had you,time turner”.
The engine starts.
I am stranded.
I am stranded in a place where there are conjectures at all the points in my life.
I am stranded in a place where I need to live a life to live upto someone’s expectations.
I am stranded in a place where my dreams are considered tawdry.
I am stranded in a place where I am made to feel intimidated to even think about going after what I want.
I am stranded in a place where the ostensible humans are pretending to lead a blithe life.
I am stranded in a place where dollar bills are the ultimate purpose of life.
- I have a different perspective about life.
- I have a different way to live my life.
- I have different things that i want in life.
Just because I am not turning into something you want me to,doesn’t make me a substandard person.
I know what I want and I know how to get it.
Oh birdie in me..
Fly me away.
Fly me to a world of hope.
Fly me to a world of possibilities.
Fly me to a world where I can be who I want to be.
Fly me to a world where my dreams come true.
I don’t want a life which is executed using an algorithm whose output is an endless loop of errors.
