A Pleasant Dream
Last night I went to sleep a little early than my usual time. I was tired so I fell asleep immediately. Within no time I was in the land of dreams. I dreamt that I had won the National Lottery. It was worth Rs. 10 lakh Before I could react to this good turn of events, the phone started ringing. On the phone were my friends who were calling to congratulate me. Soon my relatives and friends came to my house to express their joy. I was welcoming them with tea and snacks. I was so happy that I could not stop myself from smiling and laughing. Then all my friends and relatives sat down and started making plans for the future. They suggested that I should share my good fortune with the less privileged of the society. For this, I should donate a sum of Rs. 5000/- to the orphanage. And a sum of Rs. 5000/- to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. The rest I should invest in buying land and some property. The income from this property should be spent on gaining higher education in India or abroad. While this meeting was going on there was a loud crash in the kitchen. And with a start, I woke up. I realized that what appeared to be a crash in the kitchen was in reality the ringing of the alarm clock at my bedside.
