Yes, Dreams Do Come True : A Glimpse Of My #DreamTrails
With my truest companions, my dreams, I sail life's beautiful journey
Their presence tinkles my soul and warms my heart
They make every moment that comes along
Remain in my heart like a song
With my camera and my binoculars
I unleash my power to lead where these dreams leave their trails >
I am truly a vagabond, with a difference that I get this title not by virtue of choice but by the virtue of my birth, strange yet true. You may find it amusing that I am born and brought up across 7 states in India and when someone asks me where do I belong do, I instead have a very long tale to narrate. My adorable banker dad's honestly got him transferred to the remotest corners of India and that too at an unbelievable rapid frequency. No matter how much I cursed leaving my friends, school and house so often, then, today I realize that such quick movements shaped my personality and made me what I am today.
I picked up different languages, learnt to make friends instantaneously and also became most adaptable no matter how adverse a situation presented itself, I kind of learnt the tact to tackle it. During this period, I also made my pen and my camera my inseparable best buddies. As time flew, my love to discover new places, their art and culture, their specialties and cuisines became more explicit and I began to dream more and more about them. Even capturing every bit of them with my pen and camera on my blog "Straight From the Heart".
Incidentally my job of a Global Quality Specialist after completion on my Automobile engineering made me travel crazily too across the lengths and breadth of India and abroad. Quietly yet strongly the vagabond in me kept spreading its spell on me but I didn't quite realize this, as my dreams were naturally getting fulfilled.... until...
Until Wonderful Motherhood arrived, some years back . My priorities thus naturally shifted and I got immersed in taking care of my little one along with free lancing, as my job called for crazy amount of travelling. As my precious half, had huge travelling too, we decided that I will step down for a while to give our little angel proper nurturing. I admit the coming years were absolutely full of maternal bliss and I loved every moment of it except for the vagabond inside me stifled. My travel obviously became limited to my car drives, because of a little one in my arms but not my beautiful dreams.
My Travel Tales became limited to places where my car took, yet it kept the Vagabond in me alive
I love to dream, yes, I truly do. My dreams are my world which keep my smiles and my spirit alive. I dream to have my own cabin in the lap of Mother Nature at the center of the backwaters of Kerala, with everything serine and calm. I dream of taking a walk bare feet there on the frost laden green soaked grass and breathe in the natural fragrance of lush green herbs and surrounding blue waters there.
In absolute tranquility,here, I would satiate the writer in me with bringing down the most candid pure thoughts on a piece of paper; I would serve the reader in me with my long cherished pieces of reads; I would please the lens of my camera with the capture of impeccable shots, like never before, parallely also recorded in my heart and I would let the foodie in me savor the most delectable authentic cuisines served on tender banana leaves.
Mesmerized and lost in nature's beauty, I would also love to immerse myself in the gust of streams and waterfalls, tinkling the softest chords of the heart. For days to come, like a carefree Maverick bird , I would like to drown myself in the rich heritage of God's own country. Icing on the cake shall be occasionally having a soft chat with locals in mild drizzle, knowing about the art and history and some nearby undiscovered territory or species,to appease the vagabond in me.
Every time the city life took a toll on me, I will retire to this cabin of mine and rejuvenate myself in mother nature's pure love and beauty. There is nothing else I seek from God but the wings to fulfill my dreams.
The Kind God does listened to me and showed me the exact place of my dreams called Kumarakom in Kerala when I was surfing online last night, trying to strengthen my supple wings. This place seems nothing less than a Paradise and entranced me within moments. Though he did not give me my own cabin there, but gifted me an Eureka to fulfill my dreams almost immediately in the form of Club Mahindra Resort located there.
The resort looked absolutely stunning and exactly like the one I had often seen in my dreams. My eyes lit at the very sight of the lovely cottages in this astoundingly graceful yet another magnificent Mahindra Property and the desire to be right there is burning all the more stronger in me. Ideal in location and exotic in ambiance, it undoubtedly is a Perfect Realization of my #DreamTrails!
