Some Things I Want to Do Before I Die-


“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
― Rumi

I am at a stage of my life where I am done with my important ‘academics phase’. I have my whole life in front of me and it is looking a bit vague. I have a  zillion things in mind. I want to do a lot of things like everybody but even that is ever changing and always in shallow water. So while I am 22, I think I am at the right age when I can list out a few things I would love to experience.

So here’s my list, please don’t judge me. I am like you. I think writing something down makes it more solid in life. So I did. Let me know if you have a list too!

  1. What a wonderful list! I admire your desire to see and taste the world, it’s people and understand it’s ways. I share that with you. And if you think of any things on the list I can help you with – let me know (14,18,25 – London Bridge,30,37,42,44,51 – for a start off!).

  2. That’s a good list! I agree with the library and traveling the world part. Living away from India for 6 months is also a good one. Living away from home makes you independent in ways you wouldn’t imagine! Traveling all around is one of my biggest wishes too! I think I am going to make my list and post it for you to see as well! 🙂

  3. theres an ancient greek saying, “to gain wisdom either be a librarian or be a traveller”… in ur case both of these feature in ur list…if u can pull it off… der wud be lot of enrichment i am sure….

  4. An interesting list. The one that I found most intriguing was 32. Learn how to give up anger and depression in life. If you can eliminate those, everything in your life will be better.
    Find the roots and you will be halfway there.
