For The Love Of A Wish

Thinking about 2012 made me realize I don’t have a proper defined wish list, you know, that list of things you HAVE to accomplish before you literally kick the bucket. And I realized the one outlined in my head barely ever gets ticked, because well, it’s mental, and if no one knows about it, I can’t really be held accountable for nothing getting done now, can I?

So with much coaxing from me and me, here it is…*drumroll*…my rather dynamic and ever-growing WISH-LIST (or at least the sweet censored version of it!):
  1. Sky Dive, and live to tell the tale
  2. Bungee Jump
  3. Join dance classes (Delhi, August 2012)
  4. Actually dance on a stage in front of people (MICA, 2009, 2010)
  5. Reach ideal weight (the quantitative figure may be enquired about on a more personal forum)
  6. Goa (January, 2012)
  7. Leh
  8. Ride a roller coaster (Singapore, November 2012)
  9. Get a full body massage (Langkawi, November 2012)
  10. Colour my hair red (Delhi, 2004)
  11. Visit Maldives
  12. Backpack through Europe
  13. Deep-sea diving (Okay, so cheating here slightly, Snorkeling, Langkawi, November 2012)
  14. Travel alone (Singapore, November 2012)
  15. Get a tattoo (Mumbai, 2011)
  16. Play in snow (Switzerland, 2016)
  17. Be the subject of an actual photo shoot (Mumbai, December 2013)
  18. Attend a Bachelorette party (Mumbai, 2011)
  19. Attend a Bachelor party
  20. Set out on a trip without a plan
  21. See a musical on Broadway (London, 2013)
  22. Experience a romantic evening in Paris
  23. Walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk
  24. Learn to ride an Activa without crashing
  25. Write a magazine/newspaper column
  26. Get out of India
  27. Write a blog read by more than two people, well, a lot of people
  28. Receive a compliment about my writing from Jug Suraiya
  29. Kick a guy in the balls
  30. Be Me
  31. Be happy
P.S. Am turning this post into a page, because I’ll be adding subtracting for a long looong time to come.
P.P.S. If you can suggest more things you think I might like, or some way of actually ticking off some of the things here, well shout out!!!
P.P.P.S. Thought you knew me. Well, did you?


  1. That was quite a wish list except the one at Serial 27:)Ha, Ha..Wishing you all the happiness in the New Year and may your wish list come true!

  2. @Rahul - Well, born and brought up in 27 weirdly becomes a pretty common wish!! ;) Thank you!! Hope you have an amazing year ahead as well!!!

  3. I can do some of those things like ride an Activa. And some are on my list too, like Eurotrip :)

    And 2012 is definitely going to be the Year of the Tattoo. Definitely.

  4. Hmmm..Wishes Galore....Wishing you a Happy & Prosperous 2012 ahead.

    Hope u can succeed in getting atleast half of them through the year, while you expand your wishlist..

  5. Nice list...have to stay safe from #27 though :D
    Wish you a happy new year :)

  6. @PeeVee - Hope you manage to figure out how you want to be inked for life!! Good luck!! :)

  7. @Rajiv - Half the list is being VERY ambitious!!! But I hope I do manage to cross some of them out!!! :)

    Happy New Year to you too!!!!

  8. @Antarik - Hey, at least now no one can say I didn't warn them about #27! :)

    Hope you have a great year ahead...and cross off some points from your list!!

  9. well thats only 29. u have room for some more. i ll come back and check the updated list later as i have decided to read three posts for one comment ;)

  10. Come to Toronto and add this to your list: CN Tower Edgewalk

  11. Few of your picks are mine too. But being happy tops the list...
    Happy New year :)

  12. @factsandnonsense - I do intend to go beyond help me add some!! :D

    And thank you, the ratio is quite overwhelming!!! :D :D :D

  13. @ Shantanu - Help me find a job in Toronto...I'll move without thinking twice!!!! :D

    And add and cross off CN Tower from my list!!

  14. @Saru - Well... I'm hoping the end result of everything is happiness :)
    Happy New Year to you too!!! :)

  15. I could tick off a lot of things from here as my own wishlist.. Goa should happen soon :)

  16. @The Pink Orchid - Lucky you!! My Goa trip seems to hit the bumpy road every time I even think about it!!!!

  17. Learn to ride an Activa without crashin... soooo cute!
    May you be able to do all of this in this year!

  18. @Red Handed - Well, cute wasn't necessarily what I was going for!! But thanks..I hope i can accomplish at least SOME of the things on the list this year!!! :D

  19. 'bachelorette party' struck off, eh?

  20. @Phatichar - Yes have been fortunate enough to have attended two. I think they were really enough.

  21. This list makes me happy, simply for the reason that I seem to have accomplished many pointers on it - Thank you for that :P.

    Suggest you include rural New Zealand and Alaska in your must visit list of places considering you have Europe and Maldives up there.

  22. @Atrocious Scribblings - Well...lucky you!! Wish I could say the same! I still seem quite far away from target achievement!

    And thanks for the suggestion. You've been to Alaska?!?!

  23. No, haven't been to Alaska or New Zealand for that matter but have covered quite a bit of Europe.


Do let me know what you think!!!!
