Dreamer

[Intro to my portfolio]
Dream by day,
Dream by night,
Dream all the time,
More dreams for the Dreamer.
Then came a time,
What was true and not the dream
Was not known.
But realised to see;
His dreams come true,
Happy was he to know
Dream was all he had to do
Welcome to my dreams

7 Pounds

August 2, 2009

NOT A MOVIE REVIEW (BUT A MOVIE REVIEW)

Just yesterday did I get to watch the movie starring Will Smith. It was so unlike his usual movies. The story was very touching; but being verrrrry me that I am, I couldn’t help but analyse the whole movie not in a Movie Critic way but wrt LIFE like I do.

Tim Thomas(Will Smith’s character) searches for people deserving his “Gifts”. Gifts which would get their life downside up. Gifts which they never thought they could have. Gifts they worked hard to deserve but wouldn’t get one. Tim in some sort of way plays GOD, making sure that they did get what they deserved. He give his 7Pounds to 7 people.

And I realised after watching the movie that I myself haven’t given my Life its 7Pounds so how was I to give it to someone else? I myself haven’t made sure I did everything I wanted to. I never made sure I got whatever I wanted. I did work hard; but not for everything. Sometimes I just didn’t want to. I gave my 7Pounds only for my deepest desires and left out the others thinking I couldn’t get it to reach reality. I didn’t want to give even a Pound for it. I didn’t even try just because I thought I couldn’t. Now I am all set to give all the Pounds. I shall pound it or shall bear it.

And if you have given all of it and lost hope….well there is Tim Thomas on his way into your life. If you deserve it you will have it.

So now I know I give my self what I deserve.

Can I do better?

I know I WILL.

All of us have favourite something:books, songs, movies, comic characters. Having read, seen or heard them, we automatically try to analyse them. Somehow unconciously our minds picks up few things from them and it becomes a part of us.

To make it a bit more clearer. Many of us enjoy watching the TV series HOUSE M.D. Out of everyone who watch it, most them have a liking for the character of Gregory House. The way he is sarcastically funny & ends up being right all the time. At the end of it I realised I wanted to be like that guy on my screen and for no reason I felt i should have chosen MBBS over engineering(Mechanical is still the best) which surely wasn’t what I wanted then nor now.

Same thing applies to musicians, cricketers, the people around you(remember how to caught on to lingos of your friends around you), philosophies……The list can go on. Nor can this be avoided. It sure is inevitable and nor is everything inspirational; few are influencing us just like what I am writing now or have and will do has affected you, influence you in someway.

So how do I differentiate between the Real I and the Influenced I? How do I know that the choices I make aren’t under the influence of  some other person’s thinking or something that the person has said? How do look into my own eyes in the mirror and assure myself that the person in front of me is the REAL ME?How do I segregate on what should influence me and what should inspire me?

Questions remain unanswered. If you have them, let me know. If not join in; paitience shall pave way and we shall be enlightened at the end.

POST JULY 16TH

I realised I asked the wrong question. I wanted to know this system of life; which was working well just like the others. I questioned the obvious and the natural.Like Timbaland’s song it is:

THE WAY I ARE.
