Things to Do, Before I Die....

There are things that I want to do, to complete in this lifetime, so when I kick the bucket, I have no regrets. This list has a bit of everything, from all aspects of life. Some of these, I feel, are worth dying for....

Here goes....

  1. Drive from Bombay to Goa, along the Ghats, and spend a week in Goa - a guided tour conducted by my in-house 'Goan' guide, Neeti

  2. Meet Mr. Ratan Tata in person. Thank him for all that his Group has given us

  3. Join Anthony Bourdain for a culinary tour across India

  4. Open a French - Mediterranean cuisine restaurant by the waterfront - the USP would be that guests would get an opportunity to play Chef for their meals...

  5. Visit the Golden Temple, be there from dawn to dusk, engaging in sewa

  6. Drive from Delhi to Ladakh, and have my music CD collection playing in the car

  7. Meet Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman in person

  8. Take parents back to Kampala and Mwinilunga for a visit. Also show Neeti where I came from

  9. Spend a week in an Israeli kibbutz, a fun filled week of work....

  10. Laze in a hammock on the slopes besides the Nakuchiataal lake in Nainital, with my favourite book

  11. Publish a compilation of my poems

  12. Hike along the Black River Gorge in Mauritius

  13. Learn French, bon jour

  14. Have a greasy porky breakfast of bacon, ham, sausages, without having the guilt of cholesterol

  15. Do a Serengeti safari

  16. Do island hopping by boat through the emerald atolls of Palau

  17. Dance and sing in the rain - perhaps somewhat like Shahid in Jab We Met, I wonder?

  18. Go on a Victoria trail - Lake Victoria followed by Victoria Falls

  19. Do a road trip across the cradle of Aryan civilisation from Turkey into Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan - rolling green hills, blue streams and an unspoilt environment

  20. See Tibet free again - visit Lhasa's Potala Palace

  21. Open a small farm growing organic herbs and vegetables and raising animals for milk and meat

  22. Fly in the cockpit of a Boeing 747

  23. Travel in an Ilyushin IL76 - I am in awe of this amazing beast after I saw this aircraft at Jamnagar airport

  24. Visit the Sunderbans for tiger spotting, before they vanish

  25. Feed the elegant beast, the elephant

  26. Visit the Sun Temple

  27. Meet all the people, family, friends and colleagues, who have helped shape me, all at one place for a big bash

  28. Donate my organs

  29. Learn wine making

  30. Trek in the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand

  31. Gorge on the Nawabi delights of Lucknow, chaats of Delhi, Vada-Pavs of Bombay (in the rain)!

  32. Observe life as it goes on in the backwaters of Kerala...

But for now, I am enjoying the rain, with nice music playing.....
