Dreams... What are these dreams??? Right from the very next moment we're born, our mind whether it is conscious or unconscious, starts to think of achieving all the possible and impossible things. In our whole life we wish of so many such things... and we keep on wishing...forever.

And it is true also that till you don't wish for something, you don't get that... maybe because you don't want that.

However we trust with our eyes closed on so many supernatural powers and myths whose existence is doubtful... After all, how long can we trust blindly on our dreams?

Is there any truth about existence of any power above 'Karma' (deed)? Can we go on wishing forever? How true these dreams could be?

Just like that, we humans trust so much on these thousands twinkling stars. Stars, whom we can see have always been doubtful of their existence. These stars whom we can see are so many light years away from us. It takes so many light years for their light to reach earth. It might be possible that the star... which we are looking at and making a wish... it might not exist.. it may have vanished years ago.. and the light of that star which we're looking at has already been turned into darkness.

Still we trust so much on these stars... Who's true?? What's true??? How long can we trust on these stars and dreams? They both tell the same story – UNCERTAINITY.

Who doesn’t like to see dreams?

In everybody’s life, these dreams are of greater importance.

A 20 year old boy, for whom his dreams are everything, nothing else is more important to him other than his dreams, thinks that these stars whom he uses to see every night from his window are his best friends & he seeks his dreams within these stars. Everyday, his parents try to explain him not to trust these stars too much.

But, he has gone so deep down into these stars and dreams that he is not ready to understand the truth about the fact behind these twinkling miracles.

And when he realized the truth, it’s very late. He wants to go back where he was mistaken but that time has passed. And now when has last few breaths left, he realized that he achieved nothing more than a lesson to learn about the stars.

Often, he hears voices from his past memories. The advice from his father.....

Still he is watching these stars the same way he used to watch since childhood but something has changed….THE VISION.

He still has dreams but now, the link between the dreams and the stars is no more. This time his eyes are open.
