Chanced upon a banner of eBay’s new campaign “10 Things to Do before you Die!” while I was on my way to the office. The promotion invites people to bid for 10 once-in-a-lifetime experiences starting atRe.1/-. The advertisement reminded me of a list of things I wanted to do given that I had Rs. 10 crore with me. For the record it was only an assumption that my finance lecturer gave us to work with as part of an assignment while I was pursuing my masters in management. But there are so many things in life that I want to do and Rs. 10 crore is too small an amount.
Assuming that there is no dearth of money, here is a list of things (will keep adding to it) that I would like to do (as of now) before I die. Here they are (not in any particular order):
- Travel into Space
- Pilot a fighter jet
- Drive a Ferrari and a 1000 cc bike on a F1 track
- Play at the Lords cricket ground
- Visit the North and South pole
- Write and direct a movie
- Build a state-of-the-art hospital
- Establish a world-class educational institution
