We are living organisms and our biological objective of life is to grow and reproduce. Now if we add the social prospective to this basic concept of living organisms, we must ensure healthy life of our offspring (love, education, health, money…). So, a life without dream would be to work hard enough to be a able to use your capabilities to earn enough money to support your family.
Now, that was very idealistic view of life. Most parents “dream” that their children should achieve much more than them in their lives (like the objective of evolution). But surely “dreams” like to become richest person, greatest scientist etc. are not necessary for living. Moreover many times we have to pay huge price for chasing our dreams like less time for family (which is actually the reason for our existence), more stress, less friends, etc. I think that “dream chasing” is like drug addiction, it becomes inseparable part of your life and leads to various negative effects. So, I would like to ask:
Should we dream?
Maybe, working hard enough to fully utilise our capabilities is what dreaming all about.

One of many of my childhood dreams was to visit Science Activity Center (called Muktangan Vidnyan Shodhika) at Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), (inside Savitribai Phule Pune University). This is a place that came into existence due to efforts of a great human named : “Arvind Gupta“. I also wanted to meet him but unfortunately he was out of city. This is a beautiful place and everyone who has any kind of relation with science must visit this place before he/she dies. At this place you will find science blossoming everywhere.
One of the person working here explains me : ” At this place we find science behind jugaad”. [“Juggad” is a slang for Hindi speaking people meaning: collect waste material and construct some thing useful out of it]. He also demonstrated me several things that they have developed out of trash like “infinite ink pen” ; “indigenous award winning levitation model”; “box out of cold drink bottle” (not yet on internet), so on there are more than 300 such ” toys from trash”..
Here you see science in its true divine form. Everybody is welcome here. Whoever reading this post, must visit : www.arvindguptatoys.com (I am a regular visitor for last 8 years).
