Things to do before I die...

I have seen the movie THE BUCKET LIST twice...as well as DASVIDANIYA (which is based on same lines)..which gets me to a thought of my blog today...Have we ever wondered about what if we could know when we are gonna die??

No No...I ain't suicidal...lol.. Just thinking..Each of us has things that we think of doing/seeing/feeling/experiencing before we die..These movies are about the ironically fortunate people who found out that they were going to die soon. Fortunate...coz that makes it planning sooo much easier for us when we leave. I have heard recently... "हम इस दुनिया में कैसे आयेंगे यह तो हमारे बस में नही है...लेकिन कैसे जायेंगे इसकी तयारी तो कर ही सकते है...."
Mythology says, that any living being gets to be a human form once in a 1000 lifetimes and if that's true, I don't definitely wanna miss the chance to do everything i want to do in this lifetime. This list could have things as small as Being able to climb a 50 storey building in one go....(haha..I wish..) but that's what we are making...right?? A wish - List??...Ok...so here I go..


  1. Going to Paris and standing on top of Eiffel tower: Its been my favourite place to visit...not just coz its one of the 7 wonders...but coz its romantic..This point USED to include "with someone special" before...but I have decided to be picky...so I removed that clause. lol
  2. Adopt a Child: Well...I know I have been very lucky when it comes to family, friends, education, career, and finances. Lot of us crib about how less we have and how much others have..Ever wondered that YOU are that one person who has much better lifestyle than almost 30% of the population of our country??? I know its cliche to say "I want to make a difference" but i would wanna adopt the up-bringing of at least one child...(education-wise)...if not otherwise.
  3. Donate my Eyes: I don't receive compliments a lot...but the most compliments i have received in my life so far is for my eyes..Find it a stupid reason to donate my eyes?? Well..sorry my friend...I don't need a reason to donate my eyes..Its just an information I wanted to share...hahaha...
  4. See the 7 wonders of the world: Its a very common wish for everyone. and I don't have any different reason to have it here too. I just wanna see whatever of the world i can see.
  5. Elope: hahahahaha...If not with someone...then on my own....No explanations...Just sounds like an exciting thing to do...Hahaha...I like the idea of leaving my house...not knowing where i wanna go...or how much will i end up spending...or where i will end up spending the night...taking lifts on the way...going from one place to another on trucks...(filled with lambs and hay...hahaha)...sounds crazy?? Precisely why i wanna do it.
  6. Live a life of a princess for a week: I know it contradicts my earlier wish...but its wish...doesn't consult other wishes..hahaha...Ok...this wish basically means travelling on limousines...being catered to at restaurants....5-star treatment at spas...Living at 7-star hotels...Having breakfast in Greece....lunch in china...and dinner in Paris on the same day.....rose-water bath tubs...candles all around...etc...
  7. Meet Juhi Chavla: Well...she has been my favourite ever since i can remember...Her smile, her eyes, her dimples...the twinkle in her eyes....I love them all..I adore, admire, and idolize her...
  8. Throw a party and invite every friend I have ever known: I have had many moments in my life (till today) that I have lost touch with friends just like that...without proper goodbyes...There have been times that I have not been able to thank them or abuse them for whatever reason we haven't kept in touch...I want each and every person that I known and called a friend to be there during my last days of my life and if u r reading this...you are Invited.

Well...thats all i can think of as of now...and as and when i can think of something...will add it up here..

Now I need a little help from u...Can u help me to fulfill any of these things in the wish list? You are most welcome to lemme know...OR If u want to make your own wish-list...add a comment and write it up...Maybe me and other who read this blog might be able to help you out... Deal? cool...so what r u waiting for??

Cheers to life!!!
