My "Bucket-List"

If any of you watched the sweet movie Dasvidaniya you will instantly remember a boring Vinay Pathak who loves making to-do lists . He finally starts living life only when he knows that death is waiting for him just around the corner . Whether death is waiting or not every person should have a bucket list  the way Morgan Free man has and finally goes on a road trip to live his life irrespective of his terminal illness!

Anyway today I too want to give my top ten wishes in my Bucket list. Why ten ? coz round figures are good and listing all the wishes I have is impossible!

1.)  To own a house. Not a duplex (Yes I am scared of big houses.). A decent 3-4 bed room house with a huge balcony surrounded by all kind of trees and a fountain outside the house or atleast a pool where I can sit and read for hours together. A fancy book rack with a sitting area like in the pic below would be better. I will design the house of course with the help of others but I would love to give all my attention to it and ya I want a fancy sound of music hanging in the hall and each room would be decorated depending on the taste of the one who owns it!

 2.) To save a huge amount of money(if possible) which I can use on a world tour. If not a world tour atleast a tour to all the exotic places. Italy , Japan , Canada (Niagara Falls), Australia (Sydney/ Melbourne) and many places in India are in my hit list. Have road trips, do trekking, pitch in a tent in a mountain area and there are many more things linked to traveling which I want to do.

3.) Plan a get together where I invite every one, all near and dear , close friends , foes , cribbing relatives and every person who means some thing to me and give a speech totally dedicated to the selfish morons and heartless asses. I want to dedicate the speech to them in front of the crowd. I believe that open rebuke is better than secret hatred and I have my speech ready too. If only I get such a chance I know I will rock it!

4.) To learn some form of dance and learn to sing in a way that people ask me to sing again .

5.) To die slim is a priority wish. To watch my weight and keep a check on my health and not die in such a way that it would be tough for those who carry my body to cemetery! Also want to have a natural death , a painless one. It would be better if it is in sleep. Cannot bear a painful traumatic death!

6.) To be interviewed once I become an author or some one important. No . I don't want to be on a TV show as such (I won't mind if I come on TV :-)) but in a news-paper or at least on an e-paper I want to see my interview covering a good 2-pages. I have imaginary Q and A ready in my head.

7.) To meet and hug Shahrukh Khan, Tom Hanks, J.K.Rowling, Khaled Hosseini ,George Clooney and Will Smith (If not all then atleast the first one :P ) !

8.) To visit London and get clicked on the sets of Harry potter and at platform 9 3/4 wearing the robe and the Gryffindor scarf

9.) To cook better than my husband and excel in Chicken Biryani :-/

10.) To write a book which people will "remember."
