I am a VOF Fan. Period. And I look forward to a journey together to learn more. I learnt a lot from the articles Nusrat posted in her journal. They were about organizations and about women in Kashmir. Though it is a contested state within the same country, I do not know anything about their language, culture, problems and specially about the women there. It was a great learning experience and I wrote back to her asking for their contacts so that I can write independently about these women and their organisations.

Slowly, I intend to gravitate to other members' journals too, so that my journey in writing becomes a journey in self-discovery and discovery of other peoples, places, cultures and issues. Dr. A. Abdul Kalam, a scientist who was till recently, the President of India, once said:

"A dream is not what you see in sleep. A dream is something that DOES NOT LET YOU SLEEP."

Dreams are there for realisation and fulfillment, not for fantasising and being afraid of. So, here is cheers to dreaming together so that our dreams do not allow us to sleep over them!

Cheers to you dear Shoma!

Thank you for showing us your true colors. You are one big fan indeed. We are here to embrace each and every one of your posts.

In my case, as I have expressed in my profile, my dream is to make women realize they can make their dreams come true, or even more so, realize they ACTUALLY HAVE a dream of their own.

When I read this post I thanked God for giving me the opportunity to be part of the fulfillment of your dream, which has become mine, ours, when you dared sharing it with this supportive and caring community.

Cheers to you!

With love and appreciation,

Dear Shoma,

How nice to learn that "dreams are there for realisation and fulfilment not for fantasising and afraid of. wake up those who are afraid to dream ( to "talk ones mind") etc. Please, as madam shoma says lets dream together as WORLD PULSE TEAM.

GOD bless you

See you online
