Craziest Dreams...

Every time I dream at night, I wake up feeling just as excited and thrilled as watching a suspense thriller Hollywood movie. Almost all of my dreams have all the ingredients for a block buster thriller movie – suspense, action, fear, adventure. :)

The interesting thing is that I’m having these dreams long before I knew there was a world outside the four walls of my house. I think my oldest dreams are the most exciting and enigmatic ones.

Ill just tell you about one such dream. I remember having this same dream for more than two or three times. In it, there is a man standing in a deserted area, it kinda looks like set with white background and there is a long string attached between two short poles (but it’s a bit more complicated than a simple pole). He then slowly walks forward till he reaches the string. Then I would see him getting closer and closer to the string that too in slow motion until the separation reaches microscopic level. He then finally touches the string, and then something happens that I really don’t understand. A small globe will be formed and it will get bigger and bigger sucking in everything around it. This getting bigger part is the most frightening one, I don’t know why I was frightened by this but I could fell the globe consume the entire world around and then it explodes in a flash.

As I grew up and was in primary school, I had normal scary dreams... the most common being dogs chasing me ;) . Whenever they are in hot pursuit on me, I would either feel like the being immobile or in slow motion or the door of my house which was supposed to be the safe house would move away from me for apparently no reason at all. But I never got caught :D

Later years fell victim to the falling dreams.

On one such dream, I imagine the earth to be made of shells, hollow inside with more shell like earth inside it. Kinda like onion with separation between the peels. And there would be holes or large gaps on each of these layers through which people would fall from one layer to the other. In this dream, there would be millions of others around, either falling with me, or holding on to the edges of the gaps. The scene is similar to a hell like one with a reddish orange sky n all.

There is another falling dream; it’s not scary, but a nice one. It is similar to bungee jumping but without ropes. In it I would be falling, no I would jump intentionally from a tall building or once from even a coconut tree ;) . And I really enjoyed the weightless feeling while plummeting towards the ground. It also does hurt while reaching the ground.

You think I’m crazy? Wait for more ;)

Once I dreamt of an exact movie scene, with me costarring with none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Batman :D .How cool is that? I and my buddies ;) were fighting bad guys in a big hospital (I guess the inspiration was from Die Hard, just the change of scene).The incident is at night (may be because of Batman’s involvement) and I remember saving Arnold from a potentially fatal fight. :)

I think this is the first time I have identified someone else in my dream. Of course none of the characters had recognizable faces, but I just knew who they were. Another thing is that almost all my dreams are in Black and White but I just feel the colors :)

I have had lots of such dreams which I don’t remember now. But I remember one climax in which I was terrified to death, but suddenly the scene changed and I saw my mother sleeping beside me (that was inside the dream) and I hugged her and went on to have a nice deep sleep after that. :)

Well no guys dream story is full without dreams of girls ;)

In almost all of my dreams about girls, I was just talking to them. Just talking, only the scene changes, if it was the train one time, it would be in the college the next time or somewhere else.

Yeah, and one time I dreamt of going to the moon along with Tom Hanks and Saurav Ganguly :) I’ve also had dreams about my school, after I passed out of it, but all the time, the scene was in and around the toilet. I really don’t know why ;)

I guess thats all I can remember, now its your turn to share your CRAZIEST dreams :)

I dedicate this post to Deepika Gupta who has been asking for a happy post from me for a while now... ;)

Walker said...

Desire is the producer of our dreams.
The plot is the need to defeat our fears and WE are the cast on either side of the melody.
Keep dreaming

- I used to have this exact same feeling many a times when ever i was sick[not in dreams, but i felt them when i was awake.](During my childhood)

I was once hospitalized and i explained it to my doctor. He ignored it and told my mother that i was just talkin crazy.

Amal Bose said...

@ Steve happens ;)

rads said...

Rahul Viswanath said...

Amal Bose said...

ya.. it sometimes is :-(

Little Girl Lost said...

i have crazy dreams all the time. just last night i dremt i was in a hunting expedition and shot a python . what do u think it means?

thanks for sharing :)

Amal Bose said...

dream interpretation?
im not good at it, but you may ask Deepika i guess she would be of help ;-)

Lena said...

i dont have dreams.. even when i do, i dont remember them. and they are not being repeated, i feel like they are all unique :D
Not that i know it, after all i dont remember them :D
The only ones that do repeat are nightmares :(

Amal Bose said...

only very few of my dreams have ever repeated as such.. the first dream i wrote abt and the falling dream..
all others are unique :-(

Mayz said...

some dreams dude...i dnt remember even a single dream unless it has some hot girl involved ;)

Amal Bose said...

he he .. there is no chance anyone would forget that ;)

Arv said...

Hi Amal,

that is crazy :)

but tell you wat... dreams are not meant to be sane ones always... they would be boring :P

take care mate... cheers...

Hari said...

Crazy dreams are always crazy in some crazy way! :P

And, sifting through your dreams did enlighten me quite a bit on your thought process and other related stuff... For, dreams are but manifestations of that which goes on within the recesses of your mind as you're awake! :)

Great post, dude! Keep writing! :D

Amal Bose said...

@ arv
you are right..
whats the point in a dream which is just as boring as real life :-)
thanks for the feedback and do drop in again ;-)

Amal Bose said...

@ Hari
thanks for the feedback buddy.. I dont know abt that, i certainly havnt found anything informative from any of my dreams yet ;-)

joiedevivre said...

hehe i think you are watching too many movies...or the hang over of few drinks maybe...

dont you have a sexy gf to think about..if you dont have go and get one :P

(dnt mind just kidding)

Amal Bose said...

guess to many movies is the problem ;)

thanks for the feedback..
do visit again :)

tinkerbell said...

kool.. i prolly never had a dream from bolly/holly/polly wood !! and for some reason i don't even remember my dreams repeating themselves !!

nice place u've got here

Amal Bose said...

two of my dreams have been repeated more than two times i guess...
yeah, its rather strange.. ive never heard of such n experience before from any one else ;)

thanks for the visit :)

Dhanya said...

Very interesting! I hardly remember any of my dreams though :(

Amal Bose said...

thanks for the feedback Dhanya..
you are not alone here.. most of us doesnt :-(

Gymnast said...

lol...that was interesting. They say dreams are the subconscious mind's interpretations of your desires and fears.Makes me wonder about the interpretations of your dreams. I remember having dreams about snakes as a kids , but lately , i have become a sound and deep sleeper!

Amal Bose said...

well.. i dont think its has anything to do with my dreams, may be fear but not dreams. here its abt falling down or getting chased.. ;-)

Diya said...

When I was a child, I used to dream about falling down from the bed, and everyday inevitably I used to slip from the bed and end up lying suspended in the mosquito net and cry out until mumma or papa rescued me...!! lol
Even I too remember dreams like you do, and sometimes I have even tried interpreting them... but i`ve never come up with any sane explanation :(
Hope you`ll help me...!! :(

Dewdrop said...

ha ha... interesting... my dreams are more often than not filled with me being the super-girl-to-the-rescue!

Amal Bose said...


ha ha...
falling from bed is common but suspended from the mosquito net! that is funny...
i cant stop laughing by even visualizing it :D

Amal Bose said...

@ Dewdrop

way to go supergirl.. ;)

Gayathri said...

That was crazy indeed..
Do u have any persistent constipation??was just dubious coz u were particularly interested in toilets at school :D..just kidding..

falling dreams were profuse in my case too..but mostly it would be like the earth is flat and im falling at the edge into a deep deep ocean from which i have no hope of an fact i had even experienced it in the dream..the sense of falling..used to scare me a lot..
reptiles crawling thru my body were another of the kind..
i had dreamt of hell in the movie anniyan,but long before the film was released..

Ria said...

Amal Bose said...

Ya i also had wierd dreams related to exams or rather class tests while i was in 3rd or 4th.. i went for the test n found myself in my home clothes with chappals ;-)

Nikita said...
