Just imagine, if you come to know that someone is ready to pay you Indian Rupees 3 million (about $68,000), if you catch an Owl & give it to him!!! You may think, either that person is bluffing or if you believe in it, you may try at least once. But there is a condition by the prospective buyer that the Owl should weigh nothing less than three kilograms & Owl is to be caught alive and sold unharmed!!!!

Interesting, this dream has been sold to the people in the northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir in India by a mysterious man. That prospective buyer had given the villagers a mobile phone number to establish contact with him. So seeing the lure of big money, villagers of Arhama, Chattergul & nearby villages over there are going out at night in sub-zero temperatures to catch their precious Owl. Now the problem is that, though villagers have caught a few owls but unfortunately none of them weighed more than 800 grams & people are still trying for a big one.

Beating sub-zero temperatures, many Kashmiris can be seen going out at night, looking for a right-sized owl that may fetch them a fortune. Interestingly, still no one knows who the dream merchant is, who is selling these weird dreams but search is on to catch a right sized Owl.......Read more.......Kashmiris chase owls - and millionaire dreams
