The simple answer is either they are stored in our memory or we forget them. But this question makes us ask a great number of other questions.
  • What is the difference between day-dreaming and the dreams we have when we are sleep?
  • Can dreams foretell the future?
  • How long do they really last?
  • Do we have dreams in colour or only in black and white?
  • Why do we forget some dreams and remember others?
  • Are dreams good for us or bad?
  • Why do some dreams wake us up at once and other not?
Some experts say that to be healthy in mind, we have to dream every night, whether we remember or not.

There is a book called “An Experiment with Time” by J.W.Dunne, which tells us that the author used to note down in the morning , dreams he had in the night and that sometimes his dreams foretold what was going to happen in the future. He suggest that when we are wide awake our sense of time is vertical, so that we are aware only of the present moment, but when we are sleep, time becomes for us horizontal, so that we can travel into the past and the future.

Other experts say that we dream of doing the things which for various reasons, we cannot do in our waking hours. So we try to realize in our sleep wishes that cannot be realized by day.

The North, the East, the West and South,
Our fate, the truth, the situation moves the Earth, They say
The time has called for its last beckon
Dimes-worth our lives would be, when the lash comes as Satan,

Everyone of us hear the hopeless planets lament,
Mastery of techniques graph its closest fragment,
Still we feel the mystiques legends being latent,
And all would earn the probable calamity’s patent,

Freethinkers foretell that the time in remain so limited,
Freedom’s that we enjoy, is trudging along to its very end?
Free-hand’s not the measures,”2 Years”, let us misspend?
Free-wills, can we afford now, for our lives sense a cold descend,

Can a Myth or a Film, could ever bring forth what is truth?
Whether a fallacy inciting, but the possibilities are redolent,
Take-a-step at a length would not always guarantee success,
But can never help our lives yet we wait for “it”, being heedless.

Seasons swaying on, and next,
Comes playing sun's mere rest,
With the boys before their longest vacation,
With the kites in hands, ecstatic combination

Kites of every hue, of nature's theater,
Kites sight the grandeur,unveiled, never the rider,
Flies over skies, with the loops ,save nasty lever,
Dies down a sun, cries the boy "Kites, here!"

Some reach the hands back safe, Treetops capture the rest,

Days devoid leeway, time's for school,
Days take some unto smiles, but kites, Alas!

At a height I witness, all nature's hues,
The kites on trees suspend,
And never they reach again the open air,
leave teardrops everywhere,

Alone ,the kites, farewell.

Lord Baden Powell in 1907 organized an experimental camp on Brownsea Island in Pearl harbour, England for a group of 20 boys. This was not a scout camp. But it was the birth of the Boy Scout Movement, which has now spread all over the world. Dharmaraja College did not take a long time to follow his footsteps and in 1913 1st Kandy Dharmaraja Scout troop was formed.

When considering scouting activities the first great achievement was its remarkable 95-year history in the local and international scouting arena. They won the “king’s flag” for three consecutive years are 1917, 1918 and 1919. Also Dharmaraja scouts won the “Brigadier Hackett Thompson Championship” for all-round excellence at the first ever all round rally held at the Colombo Race Course in 1917. Henry Thenuwara of Dharmaraja scouts group was the sole Ceylon representative at the 1st Imperial Jamboree held in England in 1920 at the Crystal Palace.
is a voluntarily led organization incorporated in the State of Maryland since February 2009 and has Tax Exempt Status in the US as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
