Hello Friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Firstly, let me wish everyone a very happy Makara Sankranthi. I hope that this festival of joy and happiness fulfills all your dreams and wishes. This time I wanted to write something that is very close to my heart .What I am about to share with you is about the best thing that happened in the year 2009, even though I still have trouble believing it myself. To be frank, the year 2009 wasn’t a pleasant one to me; I had to go through a lot of failures and tough times. But there is something that I did the best which i wanted to share it with you all. It gives me lot of happiness to share it with all my friends.

Everybody on this planet has a dream, a wish, certain things and situations that they strongly desire to be fulfilled someday. But we always believe that dream is just a dream which is beyond our reach and we keep wondering about the fact how is it going to get fulfilled. We don’t even have a slightest clue of how we can bring those dreams, wishes and our desires into a reality????? So let me guess now, you're curious to know what I am about to say. OK, let me be specific I am going to share one of my deepest desires and dreams which is now a reality.

I still remember that whenever I used to go with my dad to Shree Venkatramana temple at Car Street during the occasion of Car Festival, he would always say “Priyanka, today is the an auspicious day ask your best friend whatever you need and desire in your life and you will see them turn out to be a reality in no time”. As a child I never really understood the actual meaning of it .What more can a child desire other than to play with the toys it has been ever denied, to be presented with goodies and new clothes. But last year I wanted to ask my best friend something very special and important in my life.

Last year on February 1st, I had asked my best friend three wishes and I had not told my parents about it anything, it was supposed to be between my friend and me. The three wishes did mean a lot to me. On that day I went early with my dad to temple to make those three wishes. My first wish had to be with regard to my academics which mean a lot to my parents. My fifth semester exams weren’t that good enough; I had found it very difficult since it had been only theory subjects. I didn’t want to disappoint my parents with my marks who have done a lot of sacrifices for me, I had tried my best but still my exams weren’t that pleasing. So I asked my best friend to do some miracle and make my parents happy with my marks. I asked him to grant me distinction tag even though I had not performed well in my exams. This was my first wish and to my surprise a week later this wish turns out to be a reality I get 80% in my fifth semester. My parents were so happy; I can’t express their happiness in just words. But I told my mom how I got 80%, I told her that it wasn’t my effort entirely it was one of my first wish that’s a reality now. She was very eager to know my other two wishes but I didn’t tell her because it was supposed to be a secret between me and my friend until it’s turned out to be a reality.

After my first wish was granted I was pretty confident that my other two wishes will be granted someday. I never doubted whether it will be a fulfilled or not, I was fully confident that it will surely be fulfilled. My second wish was with regard to my career life, I asked my friend that I need to get into some good reputed company by the next car festival (i.e. on 22nd January 2010) which will make my parents very happy. Because it was a recession time then companies rarely visited campus and selected students; I was scared whether I will get through some good company, because there were so many good students who had not been placed because of recession period. But on 7th January this wish also turns out to be a reality, I am finally placed. This was a last wish which was granted and it took an entire year to be fulfilled. I must admit that I lacked patience to see this wish turn out to be a reality. But I am very happy now and I should thank everyone who morally supported me when I lacked patience.

OK coming to my third wish which I thought was a weirdest one to ask my best friend. Last year on this day (i.e. 14th January 2009) I had been through a tough time. It was a starting point for all my problems that particular year. My third wish was with regard to this problem. I told my friend everything about my problems. You all may know how abhimanyu in Mahabharata entered the chakravyuha very easily but didn’t know a way out of it. I was in the similar situation were I entered a chakravyuha of problems very easily but didn’t find a way out of it. I was terribly stuck I asked my best friend to show me some light and help me to break myself free from that trap. Finally about four months ago I was able to be out of my problem. I was not completely happy about this wish being granted at first. It took me some months to accept it. As the human tendency we all look back at our life to see what happened in our life. But today I am happy that it’s all over and my life has taken a different turn. The year passed out very fast it helped me grow up, mature in many things and see that life is not very easy as I pictured it to be when I was a child.

Every year it comes with a new challenge and it’s like God is saying to his dearest children: “You need to go through this, so you can became stronger, wiser and more confident than ever”. This year started with a big bang and it’s a new start in my life. I don’t care how big are my problems, how difficult is the way, there is always a hope.

The three wishes are finally a reality in my life, as always had a hope that it will be a reality someday. And finally, when almost all your dreams come true, you spend a lot of time with tears in your eyes. As many great people have said “You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe”. Every person is given some power to make his wishes come true but the first and the foremost thing for him to do is to believe in his dreams and live his dreams and wishes to the fullest.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make our wishes and dreams come true, we must think over and over and be positive that it will be a reality very soon.We need to be a little patient and believe that it will be fulfilled. Live your dream and wishes come true. At the same time transform your life into one of love, happiness, joy and success.
