10 Things I would like to do before I die

1. Crowd Surf

I have no idea on how to accomplish this because let’s face it, I am no rockstar. But still I have always wondered how it would feel like landing on top and flying in the air together with a heart-wrenching fear of falling down.

2. Have a Cosmopolitan

I would really want to know what all the fuss is about. The cocktail that replaced the wine amongst the girls and tastes delicious according to hearsay. A drink apparently made popular by Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte is a rage in bars. At the right time, with the right people and at the right opportunity I am dying to say “One Cosmopolitan, please”.

3. Chill-out in one of these

A pool overlooking the sea. Just one word – WOW. Imagine you inside the pool and the entire sea kissing the sky at the horizon right in front of you. It just can’t get better than this. But yes I do have some conditions. There should be no high tide, no extensive wave crashing and absolutely no turbulence whatsoever.

4. Volunteer

If I would not have been so lazy, I would seriously have done a lot of great work. In future I do want to be actively associated with an organization for volunteering. Maybe teaching, working for sanitation contributing basic amenities or simply spending time with elderly or little kids.

5. Get a Doll-house

I had built a doll house myself when I was a little girl. It was inside a carton with covered match boxes serving as bed and furniture. As I grew up, far from forgetting my dollies I developed a strong desire for a more sophisticated doll house. A duplex with beautiful staircase, elaborate cabinets containing china and beautiful beds with linen and stuff. Once I stop leading a nomadic life I will definitely invest a lot of time and energy into designing the dream doll house.

6. Learn a foreign language and piano

As far as foreign languages are concerned I would like to learn Italian or Spanish because I feel that both sound extremely sexy. The piano learning need not be an elaborate thingy. Just a song or two and some notes. I would like to play it in my free time for relaxation and calm. It has to be one of those big wooden beauty of architecture which will occupy a major chunk of space in the living room.

7. Solo trip to Afghanistan

Visiting Afghanistan has been on my wish-list since a long time now. I developed a strange longing for Afghanistan while reading Thousand Splendid Suns. It feels like there is some undone work or something that’s waiting for me over there. Considering the state of the country (Taliban and stuff) and the number of terror attacks there maybe it’s just death but it’s a risk I am willing to take.

8. Sing for a live audience

I am no trained singer but my voice is not that unpleasant to hear. And together with a live band and acoustics I don’t think voice quality would come into much notice.

9. Float in the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea has fascinated me ever since I first came to know about its existence. It was roughly in the year 2000 when I was in 7th standard. Our geography teacher Mrs Vijaylaxmi told us about the Dead Sea and how you could just sit and read a newspaper there. Listening wide eyed I was so smitten with the new knowledge that I pressed it on every living being that crossed my path for the next 15 days. Also the sea water has some really awesome minerals which are good for your skin and have great medicinal benefits. So the thing is that I would like to go and hang out in the water without the fear of getting drowned.

10. Go on a family holiday

I have never really been on a family holiday since a very long time. Since the last 10 years it’s either been with my parents or with my sister and her family. What I want is one big gala event with all of us together.

Well that's my list. There are many more things that I have to do in life that are in my TO-DO list. However the list mentioned above came randomly from a very deep corner of my heart and brain respectively. While brainstorming for this topic I was thinking on my list of things but surprisingly obvious things like better job, more money, marriage never came to my mind. Instread it was this very cool and hip list of stuff some of which seem a little too wild for a person like me :)
