We were in chennai that time .My amma and my chithi had gone to attend a wedding.They left on sunday itself . I could not take a long leave, so I started on tuesday morning. Since my friends kept teasing me that I had put on lot of weight I decided to walk till the mandap. The wedding was on wednesday.
I started walking and reached some place. My subconscious mind told me that I have landed in a wrong place.There were so many people around me but I didnot understand a word they spoke. I got scared.I called my mother and chithi and asked them where they were. Their reply shocked me.
Amma: Where are you da?
Me: Amma I don’t know. It looks like..like Gujarat!
Amma: oh *worried* Why did you go there. The wedding is in Madhya Pradesh.
Me: ohhh.. Amma I think I took a wrong turn and landed up here. what shall I do now?
Amma : OK baby, You must be tired now. Go to a hotel and stay there tonight, morning you can come here.
I sat in the hotel lobby thinking about how to reach MP in the morning. In my mind I imagined India map. And I imagined it wrong. In the map Gujarat was in the MP’s place and MP was in Gujarat!!
* So in my dream I realize that my geography knowledge is so bad so so bad . It disturbs me a lot and I get scared, but the dream is not over yet. To reassure me, my real sub conscious mind sends my cousin into the dream *
Hotel room is booked and I am so relieved to see my cousin there in the same hotel. We talked for a long time,went to a nearby restaurant and had dinner together. The food was awesome, super awesome but it was so costly. We paid Rs. 10,000 just for food and left the restaurant.
I could not believe that I had paid 10,000 rupees for a dinner. It was too much.On the way back to our hotel room , I told my cousin,
Me: What ya.. the food is so costly here. Just for a two day trip I have spent so much money. You know what, I am going to make this trip worth for the money. Tomorrow as soon as we reach MP,first thing, I am going to Ranthambore National Park and going to have fun!!!!
*** I wake up from my dream. Ranthambore National park in MP????? Man… How the hell did I score 85% in 10th std Geography??? With this level of knowledge I should have never passed it!!! ***
*** In the scene where I tell amma that I am in Gujarat, I remember RM’s name came up, but I don’t remember much of it ***
*** This was yesterday’s dream, writing this masterpiece down before I forget ***
*** As I am typing this, I have our own India map open in another window. I am still shocked about my
Geography General knowledge you see ***
*** So people never ask me for direction, b’coz you know the truth now ***
