Me ‘n Bachchan

Filed under: Personal — Cris @ 15:57

I saw Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya (Bachchan?) Rai. Where do you think such a thing could happen? In my dreams!

My school. The old assembly ground was turned into a stage. I was watching everything with others from the second floor in front of my 10th-Grade classroom.

I saw one Aish at the stage and one in the audience. Ohhh I must be in some movie set. Aha the whole Bachchan family – reminded me of Khabi Khushi Khabi Gham. I was down near the stage now. I saw Karan Johar come out of my computer lab and declaring he is not going to avoid Sharukh in this movie either.

I turned around and saw 3 kids in a sofa near the stage. I went and sat with them. I identified them as Shweta’s (Bachchan’s elder daughter) kids. (I have no idea how many kids she has in real life) Two were twin boys. I put them on my lap and the their sister next to me. Out of nowhere came Bachchan himself and sat on a chair on the stage and talked to us. Some part of my mind said this cant be happening I am conversing with Amitabh Bachchan face to face?! Oh well he was just talking he wouldnt know me. He asked us do you know what this movie is about. The kids said some stuff and I said its a kiddie movie. And he said no Cris its not. Woah!!! He knew my name!! “Arent you a Mallu, Cris? This movie is about a Mallu.” He must know my name cause I am holding his grandkids.

The rest must have been pretty interesting but I cant remember anymore. This much I gathered as soon as I woke up so I wont forget.

Well it was nice yakking with Bachchan! Dreams are really amazing! You get to do anything there – see anyone – only you dont get to choose your dreams. They happen by themselves. But believe it or not, I have many times in my dreams realised I am in a dream and tried to do things knowing I cant do in the real world. Most of the times I fly or jump real high. But once you know you are in a dream, you wake up too soon 😦 No more flying, no more jumping..

But then there are those day dreams. All you need there is a good imagination and a completely absent mind! Now I am in full possession of that. For, absent minded I am! And most of the time I have no idea I have lost touch with the real world and went dreaming.
I think its one of the best qualitites of humans that they could dream. Imagination is a gift.
Yes Sir! I am going to waste no time now and going to start dreaming! So long!


  1. Wow, you remember your night dreams so well… 🙂 Keep dreaming (both) :p

  2. It is a boon if you could recollect your dreams when you wake up..

    Twice in my life I woke up laughing, laughing really loud .. All I knew was that I was laughing uncontrollably and I was trying to recollect why I was laughing when I was awake,I wasn’t able to recollect but the irony is I was still laughing.. :p
