As it happens many a times, we brush aside several tasks branding them as imaginary conveniently forgetting the reality that whatever little or big we do primarily emerges from the imagination only. Imagination is the root, it is the threshold for an invention to take off. The great scientists, writers, poets, politicians, spacepersons including woman astronauts, doctors, all had their dreams first before reaching the top of their achievements in their respective fields. The dignitaries and the celebrities, who originally belonged to the bottom rung of the society from living standard point of view, dreamt of becoming ‘Mr.Something’ some day, and their imaginations continuing from one level to another, they finally climbed to an Everest of success. Imagination is not a thought in vacuum, nor it can just be branded as utopian. Imagination is actually a prologue to something positive in the offing. It is a thinking process worth moving ahead, it is a phenomenon that transmits itself to a sound reality in course of time. Abraham Lincoln, the one amongst the greatest American Presidents, once said publicly that whatever he was as a President of America, he was not the one to forget his days of poverty. At times, it can be taken as a matter of chance too, like it happened in the case of our President of India, Pranab Mukherjee. Looking from his house, which he then occupied as a cabinet rank Minister in the Central Government, towards the then Indian President’s house in New Delhi, glancing over the herd of the horses there being served so luxuriously, he shared his immediate thought with his sister saying that he wished he gets his next birth as a horse like he was seeing there being offered sumptuous food. This he might have said in a lighter vein just as a matter of a flying mind randomly; it was neither a serious thought, nor any sort of positive imagination, but it became a tangible truth in a bigger measure. Instead of a horse in his next birth, he became something much beyond that –the very President himself, and that too in his existing birth itself. Imaginations and dreams after all are not to be equated with a loose thinking, nor they can be taken in a whiling away measure.
