A Few Things To Do Before I Die

16 Apr

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):

  1. Travel into Space

  3. Pilot a fighter jet

  5. Drive a Ferrari and a 1000 cc bike on a F1 track

  7. Play at the Lords cricket ground

  9. Visit the North and South pole

  11. Write and direct a movie

  13. Build a state-of-the-art hospital

  15. Establish a world-class educational institution

    Apart from all the material cravings:

    I want to visit the Bamiyan valley in Afghanistan.

    Want to do something worthwhile for those who can’t help themselves.

    Develop my writing ability to a decent level.

    Start and run a website.

    Travel India on a two-wheeler.

    To improve my reading speed, so that I can finish all the books I have and will have.

    Achieve a good name in my current profession.

    Become a good decision maker.

    @LuLi: I am no expert on Palestine but wish that it belongs to the rightful owners.

    @Vinay: Flying like a bird, just terrific.

    @Krishna: How wonderful it will be in a world without any distinction based on caste, creed and religion.

    @Akhil: May all your wishes come true.
