Why are we afraid of dreaming and trying??

Tara, a 7-year-old girl was little mischievous, yet polite. Her dreams were high but her personality was down to earth. She always wore a smile on her face but use to cry when she could not complete her homework. Pending work was always a burden. She didn’t love studying but her mother was a good teacher and a friend too. Most of the time when she thought she was playing with her mother actually she was learning something.

Despite all this, Tara had a dream. She wanted something, and like other children, she never forced her parents to get anything. Either she tries to get it on her own or she just asks them once for it.

But this time what she wanted was not a Barbie or a Barbie house. She wanted something which was almost next to impossible to get. She wanted the moon. Yes, she was crazy. She loved the moon and wanted to keep it with her under her pillow. Maybe her mother was not good with her sharing lessons. (Just kidding)

Every evening she went to the terrace, she gazed at the moon. And she found an immense beauty in it. She felt moon have a magic to cure any inevitable pain.

She realised even her hero, her dad’s height was too short to reach it. And she would need more than hundred stairs like the one which was hidden beside the storeroom door. She tried almost every possible thing a 7-year-old could do.
But one day she was playing with a ball and then she realised when she kneels down to pick up the ball from the floor the moon also come closer. Very short but it also kneels with her.

She called her mom and explained this to her. She requested her mother to jump up and hold the moon when it comes closer. Her mother gave a little laugh but seeing a spark in her daughter’s eyes she agreed. She tried hard and hard but every time they failed. Now Tara was getting pissed off from her mother why she no able to do a little task?? Maybe it’s a bad day Tara thought. “Mom we will try this later” she said to her mom.
That night she could not sleep. How could she? She had found that one little ray of hope to catch her favourite thing in the universe. The next morning was spent just waiting for the sun to seemingly set among the borders of sky paving a way to the rise of the moon. And when moon finally appeared she went to the terrace again. Her mom also went with her to fetch clothes. Again she forced her mother to help her in a mission to catch the moon.

Days passed she kept on trying this and some other methods. She failed every time but her hopes didn’t. Until one day, in her science class, the teacher told her actually how far the moon is.  

So this might seem a silly story to you all. But did you observed Tara's effort to get the moon?? That little girl tried her best, even her unconscious mind was aware of the fact that it's not possible to get the moon. Tara is every one of you. Maybe you dreamt some other thing. Something that was possible to get, or something impossible like the moon. But you tried your best. 

In this story, Tara was Tanya that is obviously me. And I just wanted to convey here how a little child tries and tries to achieve a nearly impossible thing.  And we grown up, even fear to dream something that is little difficult or is outside our comfort zone.

We stop trying just because some people think we can’t. Or because we could fail. Or maybe we are afraid of hard work we need to put in it. Whatever may be the reason, but we need to find that Tara back in our soul. Who is not afraid to dream. And who will try to convert that dream into reality.

Goodluck readers.

The silent warriors.

Hey guys, I hope you all are doing well. It’s been really really long. I don’t know why I just stopped writing here, though I've been busy lately but that can’t be the excuse. So I’m overwhelmed that you came here despite of my not so good behavior!
The topic I'm choosing here is The Silent Warrior.

They are the one who build a wall around them,  A wall that you can't see, but it's there. Stopping them to enjoy the moments that are worth living for.  They are fighting to destroy the wall but they are tired.  Tiredness that sleep can't fix.   They fight battle silently in their room with their minds. They are living among us, they are one of us.  Let's find them and break the wall together. 

So these days, I do stumble upon people with broken heart, broken dreams and pretending to have a bad life also I do use social media that implies I come across with people pretending to live the best life. The point here is we have all kind of people around us. Some who make hype …

For all the students and their parents waiting for the exam results.

Hello readers,
I know this time is difficult for some of you. The wait for the result is difficult to handle. The fear of failing or getting fewer marks than your friends is giving you stress. Anxiety is making home in your body. The wait is getting longer. Every day you think about the result and remain silent trying not to remember it. But thanks to the society who remind you about the result every day. And to your topper friend who keeps comparing the answers till now. Believe me, people I know that feeling. I’m just here to tell you that just believe in yourself and your hard work. Nothing can be changed now. But how you adapt your result could. Just imagine the worst condition it could take. You might fail? So? Your life will be wasted? You would have no motive to live? Of course not.  You are much much better than a paper with your name and some grades written on it. You’ll get an another chance to prove yourself. And another worst condition could be you score fewer marks than you…
