Realists & Dreamers

So I came across this while watching an episode of modern family and it really got me thinking. I'm just gonna quote the lines below:

"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground."



Yea well people might be divided broadly into two categories: You are either a Realist or a Dreamer, An Optimist or a Pessimist.

I consider myself a Realist. A Realist is a person who considers every aspect to a situation before making a decision. It's not that he is afraid to dream ; just that he realises that sometimes the dreams may be too far fetching. He could be termed as a pessimist. We are those kind people who only dive into stuff after  thinking about it a million times in our head. We are very calculative and stress too much for the tiniest of things. We might find fault with the so called dreamers, but at the end of the day we would never even try to live if it weren't for the dreamers. Dreamers play a vital role in our lives. They fill up the void spaces that we would never dream of accomplishing.

Dreamers are so full of energy and dream so many things. The only problem might be that they have all these dreams but have absolutely no clue of to get there. At the same time realists will know all the ways to get to the end but they don't dream enough.

If dreamers ended up with the dreamers they would just end up being a bunch of dreamers with no direction to move and probably they would all choke over themselves when they reach the epitome of heights. Whereas realists, i guess they never really would even move anywhere, cause they are all probably busy finding problems rather than solutions.

In this episode of modern family, the family gets divided over this issue but towards the end they realise that every one of them is important to the other. Each one of them forms the very essence of their life. If it weren't for the other, they would have never taken off the ground or some would have just flown away.

Where do you think you're heading?

As i stay up one night, my head, as usual, wanders into endless thoughts. One thought strikes me real hard. What exactly am i doing with my life? This question kept lingering at the back of my head. I am quite used  to these kind of thoughts that get stuck in my head. But this one was different. I couldn't quite wrap my head around getting my way around it. 

We all live in a world where we are so caught up with getting through with each day's worries. But Hey! Slow down! Take a moment. Breathe! Where the heck do u think you're heading?
Why do you run around taking on so much worry when you don't know where you're heading to? You might think you have your future all mapped out. oh yeah you're struggling so hard : probably trying hard to get  through school, survivng university and some others; to just get a damn job with the single motto of earning enough money to live each day in a mediocre lifestyle( cause otherwise u just might end up on the streets!).  And the…

Brown Family Problems #2

And continuing from my previous post..
Dowry as I said earlier is kind of like a price tag. You hit the bull's eye when you get your target right on the money. It's quite a debated topic with a lot of laws in place to abolish the practice of accepting dowry; but that's all just in paper. In order to come into effect it's gonna take a long time. It basically means changing the mindset of a chunk of society which can be quite the challenge.


Another thing about Indian marriages or so would be the qualification of the bride and groom. If the bride is a doctor then she can only get married to a doctor. Equally important is your religion or caste. Getting married to a person not from the same caste or religion is like the biggest sin anyone could commit.If  He/she proceeds with a marriage of such sort, they would bring on themselves the shun of society and family. The family would practically disown you and kick you out. Trust me I am not exaggerating when I say disown. Its v…
