‘My Friend - The Invisible Guide’
“A surprising and miraculous dream , the terrains,mountains,grasslands,woods and the most interesting and refreshing , the flute music. I couldn’t figure out what exactly I saw”, said varsha, to her friend kripa.”Yeah…you are always on your dream journey right? Please leave me, I don’t have time to listen to your vivid creations”. Kripa bounced back. The lazy Sunday morning in the hostel was more lethargic ,with the completion of the mid-term exams.Varsha could not resist herself from the excitement generated by the dream she had last night. This was not an ordinary dream, it was different, it was special as it beckoned her again and again. The breakfast bell woke her up from her dream thoughts. “Come on now, We should have our breakfast before the bread sandwich becomes stone sandwich” shouted Kripa who had already taken bath and was ready with her ‘mickey mouse’ coffee cup and ‘pooh’ plate.Kripa was a cartoon lover. More than cartoons, she loved the characters. Students started rushing downstairs for the tasty and yummy Sunday special breakfast. Varsha still lost out in her thoughts, accompanied Kripa mechanically. The dining hall was huge. It had long brick made tables and benches. To the right side of the hall, there was a hand wash area. The day went off well with not much happenings, as it was a holiday and it went peaceful.Varsha was captured by the same dream that night, but this time it prolonged. She could feel the fragrance of the breeze, when she walked through the deep forest, which made her energized and relaxed. She could hear the chirpy twittering of birds, which she tried to comprehend but could not. She continued walking. Now, the road became hard, with thorns and stones. It was not easy to walk anymore. It was getting darker and darker.Varsha got scared. There were two ways now. Which way to choose? She was confused. She closed her eyes and tried to concentrate, forgetting her fear. She could focus on the flute music. She chose the path directing to the melodious music. Slowly she walked with faith, with trust in her invisible friend, the flute player, her soul mate. Finally, she reached a garden with beautiful flowers and fruits. It was a magic land with rivers of milk, honey and rose water flowing. Trees filled with candies and chocolates! I am so happy, so delighted to reach my dream land with my invisible friend. I love you Lord, you are my friend, who always showed me the right path to success and joy. Even if I don’t have anyone, I have you as my friend, please be always on my side, prayed little Varsha who woke up fresh in the next morning.
