“You know I had a dream yestereday , It was raining heavily and I was playing in it, Sun was hidden in the clouds and It was about to come out and I was eargerly waiting for rainbow and guess what…” Suddenly her voice lost that excitement she had at first.
I smiled at her and said “You suddenly woke up before seeing the rainbow”.
She laughed, “Is it that predictable?”
” I am hearing same dream for long time. Why you are so eager about seeing rainbow ? Did you ever that see in your life ?” I asked curiously.
She thought for a while and replied ” I did not see ever. Not even once. I want to see rainbow once in my life, either in the dream or in real. But I had to wait a long for it I guess”
I patted her shoulder and said “Sometimes waiting is also equally fun”
She nodded and lost in her thoughts.
“Swetha , Make it fast otherwise we will get late to office” I honked my car. It’s been a while since she had that dream, I wondered did she have the same dream again.
“Ya Shree. I am here”, She replied her voice is muffled in middle of eating.
She hurried outside stuffing some notes in her bag.
“Did you prepare well for the session ?” I asked her in concern.
She replied “Ya I did prepare well. Let’s see there” and she took out the notes and began reading it.
I noticed the huge traffic jam on her way, I checked the watch and wished we reach office on time.
We were waiting in the line of cars, Suddenly it started raining, and out of nowhere I saw the rainbow appear. I couldn’t control my excitement. I looked at her eagerly. She was still reading her notes.
I turned her face towards me and pointed to the rainbow. Suddenly she was smiling broadly , all her stress lines gone for a second. She lowered the window and was fully admiring the rainbow, her joy knew no bound. She whistled in happiness. I let her enjoy the moment, After all it was her long time unfulfilled dream.
She smiled at me , I told her ” Some of your dream became reality like this in a unexpected time. you have to wait for the pieces to fall in right place in right time”. I nodded understanding my point. May be few dreams in our life are like this, occurs after long waiting, But surprise us when it happens. Have belief and wait for it.
