I Have A Dream . . .

On August 28, 1963, 2,50,000 people from all over the country, marched towards Lincoln Memorial to listen to the iconic speech given by Martin Luther King, Jr., which became a milestone in achieving freedom in American history.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

It all starts with a dream, plants the seed of an idea, sometimes keeps us awake at night. I, too, have a dream, dream of making this world a better place, more than that, contributing to it. Till now, I was running away, hiding behind the curtains. Curtain made out of fear and failures, which we think we don’t have in common. It was time to come out. The writing was one of the ways to come out.

I heard blogging is a way to share individuals’ thoughts and ideas. Blogging is like having a conversation, gradually progressing from weird ones to memorable ones.

When I started to think about creating a blog, Many questions came into my mind. Do I have that much content to share with others? I started keeping a pocket diary since June 2019. I write whatever thoughts and observations come into my mind either from the inside world or outside world, about people, things, real or imaginary, positive or negative. Whenever and wherever ideas come, I write.

Within two months, I had to buy a new diary. So It turns out I had a lot in my head. I got a feeling that I have a knack for writing.

Knowledge is not for me to keep, it’s for me to give.

My father

As per my father’s lessons, I can not keep these things to myself. I have to take it out on the table for others to grab. Over the months, I have attended some writing workshops and various writing courses offline. I gathered information about blogging. I have grouped the posts into three categories.

LifeStyle

As per google search, LifeStyle is the way in which a person lives. It means currently, there are approximately 7 billion possibilities(ways) to live a human life. Everybody is trying to figure out “the way”. I am sure about certain things which worked for me, might work for you. We are going to talk about attitude, style, time management, and the things that really matter and help you in living a better life.

I have a dream that all the little children will one day live in a world where they will not be judged by the content of their social status but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.

Coding

In the era of digitization, It has become very crucial for everybody to understand programming. From print “Hello World” programs to scalable cloud applications, It’s all just the magic of logic and programming.

I have a dream that all the little children will one day live in a world where they will not be judged by only the appearance of the software they developed, but by the scalability and performance of the software. I have a dream today.

Creativity

Creativity is nature’s gift to all of us. This urge to create something has brought us from stone age to modern age. It is here to take us beyond the stars, beyond the realities our mind can barely imagine.

Famous American author Daniel H. Pink wrote a whole book about how creativity is going to be an essential skill in the coming future, named as A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

I have a dream that all the little children will one day live in a world where they will not be judged by the conventionality of their thoughts but by the creativity of their thoughts. I have a dream today.

The thing which makes creativity different is that we all already have it. It lies inside us. The following piece is one of my favorite pieces from any book about creativity.

Look at your ancestors. Go back far enough, and you will find people, who were not consumers, people who were not sitting around passively waiting for stuff to happen to them. You will find people who spent their lives making things. This is where we all come from.

Elizabeth Gilbert
from her book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

I have a fear, fear of expressing myself. I write stuff, out of fear of being judged, keep it to myself. It was a challenge for me to have a blog. And Now It is in the process of being conquered. I want you to conquer your fears. So dust off your guitar, It is time for you to give.
