'84 dreams

waheguru ji ka kkhalsa waheguru ji ki fateh,

For the past few years now I have been having extremely frequent dreams about the 1984 Sikh Genocide, where I am continously the arrested, killed or tortured however in someone else's body. This may sound really weird but it's been happening to me for a long time all began from as early as I can remember which was when I was 6 years old when I saw the Maachis movie which is about '84 and found out about what happened...and ever since then I have these dreams where the police picked me up from house and took me to jail where I was continously tortured. Then there was also one where I was at Darbar Sahib when all of a sudden police came and my kirpan was taken off me and my family was kept hostage,and because the crowd was so big I also lost my dad. I still remember this dream vividly becuase then the policeman got his AK47 and began to walk into a room with my sisters and mum and other ladies...I began running into the room when I saw everyone lined up against the wall and the policeman shooting them dead...that's when I woke up. I have had countless dreams similar to these and the scary thing is that they all seem so real and I can remember them vivdly even a long time after having the dream.

I have a lot of interest in and read a lot about the Shaheed Singhs from that time and their life style as well as the stories of the victims. And although I don't live in India and am born and brought up in pardes, I have a really strong connection with 1984 and Punjab and have this urge from within, to fight the injustice that the Sikh kaum had to go through almost 30 years ago.

Do you think all these dreams and my love for Punjab has any significant connection to anything? My relatives always jokingly say that I may have been a victim of the genocide in my past life, but then I always think if I were a shaheed in my past life would I really be here now?

Thanks and bhul chuk muaf karna. Wjkk wjkf
