I was talking to my colleague about dreams the other day. It is just funny (in an interesting sorta way) that the dreams I've had of my late grandmother can more often be scary, than sweet. And this despite the fact that she used to love my sister and I and was never shy of showing her affection - it's a mystery to me.
Like the other day, I dreamt that I went into my room was switching on the lights and fan, but nothing was working. And then I turned towards my bed and there she was right in front of me, in her white sari, holding a candle and there was a mirror next to her. In my dream I was scared, and I tried to push her (why would I want to push my dear grandmother, I don't know) and she dodged my push. Then she said "Nalle Kaana" in Malayalam, meaning ''See you tomorrow.'' And then I woke up, startled. It was a pretty scary dream for me.
Maybe the dream is a way of saying that she has the solution for what I am seeking. Or maybe the candle (light) is her way of giving me hope. Perhaps. A point to ponder for sure.
And so far I have dreamt about my dad, but it's all been short and non-scary. He's always with us, doing something he would normally have done, when he was around. Well, I have been thinking about him so it's logical, that I would dream about him.
Speaking of dreams and dad, I remember one particular dream I had about him a few years ago. He got a call from some company who said that he had won a competition - he had the most vitamin among the contestants. Can't remember what he won though, probably more vitamins. He was always into his vitamins, he used to take them religiously. He had a good laugh when I told him about the dream. Hmmm.
