Do dreams connect with the real world? I think yes. Read on. (Looong post ahead)
Two days back I had a dream.
Few of my friends from college came to visit my house in Bangalore along with Roger (lets call him that for now, we were in same batch in college). We had good chat over coffee and talked about our life in college. Time went by and I noticed that Roger taking my wallet which was on the coffee table and exploring it. He kept it back as soon as he noticed that I was staring at him.
As soon as they left I checked my wallet…my credit card was missing! I quickly called the bank only to know that there was a 25000 spending on my card. (that would be impossible, because I called as soon as they left, but then it’s a dream). May be I was so dumb that I did not chase them (haha, it’s a dream nightmare). I cancelled the card.
Next, I called the police. They came over in white uniform (I think those were traffic policemen, what were they doing here ????, well it’s a …..) they did a round of questioning and left.
Two hours later the door bell rang and I found Roger standing there. He did not talk. He told me he wanted to use the restroom (WHAT ???). I directed him to the rest room. I did not ask him anything (Aargh !).
As soon as he went in, I closed the door from outside (now my instincts are working! Hooray) and I called the police again.
They arrived in 15 minutes, but we found that Roger had made his escape through the restroom window. He broke the metal rods and escaped! Aaargh !
Now before you guys lose your patience with my weird dream, let me explain.
I could connect this dream with three things that has happened in my life.
- Roger (the guy who stole my credit card in my dream) was a person who always lied. He lied about his relationships he never had (with gals of course), the grades he got, almost everything. He had many backlogs which we knew about, but he always told everyone that he had cleared every exam. May be because he had a serious inferiority complex building up around him, but the thing is, he was not a bad student after all. He had good marks in other subjects.
- Back in college, during our second year we found that many things were missing in our rooms, things like books, magazines, even trousers. Once a friend of mine lent his book to Daniel (name changed). Daniel did not return it after months of enquires from my friend. After a term my friend asked Daniel to return the book as it was taken from the library. Daniel asked that how can he return a book which he has not taken in the first place !!!. Pissed off, my friend broke Daniel’s suitcase(when Daniel went home) and was surprised with what he saw. He saw books, trousers, carom coins, cards, library books (books that many had lost) and in the middle of it he found the book!. Clearly, Daniel was a kleptomaniac. Everyone wanted to beat him up, when another friend of mine and myself talked to everyone to make them understand that it’s a disorder and we should not make it worse for him. Anyways we both did talk to Daniel and we did not find anything missing (from room atl east) for the rest of our life in college.
- Recently a friend of mine had problems with his credit card. One fine morning he got a message on his phone that read Thank you for booking ticket with Yatra.com. He checked online to find that his credit card has been used online to purchase tickets to Switzerland !!!!! He got in touch with the credit card company and the matter is still pending.
Now, do you think my dream nightmare is connected with all these?
