Absurd Dream

Dreams are something which we like sometime whereas we hate some other times. Some time when we have a good dream in night, we wake up so fresh and enthusiastic that day goes so good. Whereas some other time, we get so tensed in our dream that we wake up exhausted. Similarly we do so many things in dream which we may consider beyond our capacity in normal course. Still some other time we dream totally absurd that we cannot interpret at all and unable to relate it with anything.
This is one of those absurd dreams. This dream goes something like this:

I am sitting with my some of my friends in garden and we are having juice, tea and coffee. Suddenly we see something in far off sky, something big moving. Everyone get curious however we are not getting a good view, so I decided to climb the Acacia tree. Focus changes here to my climbing. All my friends are enthusiastic about how high I can climb on this try. Somehow I do not know where from I am getting energy but I am climbing up and up. Also looks like tree is too tall, it is no more an Acacia tree rather it turns out to be some other tall tree. Everyone is guiding me and telling that I should not see down. In between all these I reach top of the tree and I see that the thing which we were seeing in sky is really strange – it looks like a small area of some town is moving around. There is small house with boundary wall, trees etc are moving. Surprisingly that is coming toward us and I am falling in that.
Suddenly scene changes and I find myself in front of my house and my house is changed quite a bit and I can see some of the things in front of my house which were there in that moving mass in sky. There is a deadly silence there. I am unable to understand what is going on. At that time I see my passport lying in front of my house. I ran and grab that and I see a noting in that where it is written “Deported out of Earth Planet”. I am bewildered what happened. Some thoughts come to my mind and I feel that all this is because of that moving mass which has deposited in front of my house. I am looking for my wife but she is not where. I then see all our bank passbooks are lying outside. I ran and grab those and find that all my passbooks are having entry that “Account ceased” whereas all my wife’s passbooks are having entry that “Full amount withdrawn and account closed”.
During all these I find there are lot of uniformed people descending toward me. One of them orders me to leave the place. I am defiant and saying why should I leave my house. They do not say anything but a cunning smile on their face. I start raising my voice still no one is answering me but are smiling. I get hysterical and one of the person signals other and they come around with one injection of sedatives to grab me. Somehow I get a feeling what they are about to do and tried to run away. There is high boundary wall around me but I do not know where from I am getting energy, I jumped over that and all those people are left behind.
I am running around and do not know whether some one told me, I get in mind that this is all absurd misunderstanding and if I somehow delay all this, I will be out of this doldrums. So my brain is now running fast how to delay my deportation. I went around and trying to go in a shop to do some purchasing for my journey but again surprisingly everyone knows me and they shut door on me. I am again thinking what to do. Next I reach one public utility area and want to freshen up but again they closed their door. I tried to force entry their but they have put strong bars in front of door and windows. Again I am having unexplained power and I am able to break bars and gained entry.
The scene changes and now I have in mind that whatever the authorities have done to me is not legal but since they have done this to me they want to frame some how so that they can justify their action. They are ready to go to the extent that even if I do not pay electricity or telephone bill they will treat this violation of law and that will result in deportation. At the same time something is coming to my mind (again totally absurd) that if some how I get placed at number 41, all this misery can go away.
The scene again changes and I find that one of my office colleagues is also in same situation. We discuss and find that our telephone bill is due so let us pay this before it is overdue. We both are going to the telephone department in our cars. What we find that there are road blocks put in our way to delay us. We are trying to take different routes but there is big block in front of my car and I cannot move at all. At the same time someone bangs my colleague’s car and he gets hurt and unable to drive. I jump in his car which is a 4x4 and take driver seat. Some how seat is very low and I am unable to see road in front of me. I tried to pull seat up but it broke. Now I am squatting and driving. Again there are many racing cars which are trying to block our way. I am navigating between these cars and trying to reach telephone office as fast possible before it closes.
Ultimately we reach the telephone office and I jump out with both our bills however there is a long queue and they are distributing tokens. I run to get a token. To my surprise I get token # 41. I am so happy that I just jumped as some how my instinct is saying that our miseries are over.
And that’s when my daughter wakes me up….
