Before you kick it.

The routine of life is sickening me. Its been the same thing everyday and I’m sure I’ll have the ‘oh not again!’ feeling again when i wake up tomorrow! Everything I did on a daily basis, like brushing teeth and eating, for instance, is appearing just bio-mechanical. As if a PC is executing what it has been programmed to do. These things are bound to be done that way, or else people would think I’d stuffed my mouth with a sock all night. But the worst feeling hanging around is like life is closing around me, and I’m simply searching for a hole to tear myself out, lest I should be trapped with claustrophobia!

What I meant by ranting about things going the way they are is, its been monotonous for quite sometime now. Many people may give me examples of themselves or others and say that life as a student can be as interesting as u can make it, and that there is not much freedom once you’re out into the corporate race. I don’t know how true it is, but it sure does sound sickening. Coming back to my search for holes, every hole out of the closure, opens up an arena which appears vast, serene and tranquilising. But soon starts to fall back and I’m left with my claustrophobia again! Damn it!

I am referring here, to all the things that i did/wanted to do/stopped halfway/just drafted the plans. Every plan or idea whose time was ripe, appears as sole star in the blacked out mind. But soon dims and fades out into the mist of given up ideas in the background. The relative enthusiasm is always the phenomenon to blame. The innocent mind is polluted with all these ideas and refuses to fall back upon failed plans, while the new ones are tempting.

Okay! Ideas – old, new, working, drafts, dead etc. What do we do about it? Just let it be a loosely let out fog in the mind and ignore them as if they weren’t your brain-child? Hide your face from your inner self and be haunted by the unknown feeling of betraying someone you don’t know? Naa… List it. Its better to have it in your hand than in your mind. List them one by one and see for yourself, the fog in the mind clearing out. Do what is there in the list and see one new star in the cleared mind promising light for eternity! Each job done or each idea realised means one new star and lot more life and energy for the tired brain.

So, the list of things/jobs/ideas is ready and it is NOT a To-Do list, because to-do lists are always boring and imposing in nature. This list is “Do it before you die” List, ie., before you kick the bucket and call it a wonderful life, well led. The Bucket List. Keep this one closest to your heart and use it without inhibitions. Completing the tasks depends upon the necessity, sanity, and the possibility of it to happen. And at last, I’m sure that, as said in the movie “The Bucket List”, your eyes would be closed when you die, but your heart will be open.

Now, enough of talking and getting to work, I’d like to present you with my small Bucket list.

Singing heartily and loudly with a close pal, sitting with popcorn, and entertaining grandkids.
Drive a Harley Davidson, Mustang and a Rolls Royce.
Spend one evening with Priyanka Chopra in Hawaii.
Bungee jumping, canoeing and a few nature-sports.
Flying high in the sky and feeling the wind kiss my skin.
Perform as a villain opposite Himesh Reshammiya and kill him in that movie.
Lose weight and achieve a BMI of 22 at least once before I am 40 30 25.
Pose for a photograph sitting on a Lion, with a Sniper Rifle.
Learning to write with my left hand and out-doing the right hand’s proficiency.
Shop till the shop-owner drops.
Look into the eyes of ‘My Perfect’ and losing myself.
Perform in a concert as a lead vocal, singing my compositions.

O-oh…! I almost forgot the most important thing. I should have a fortune to make at least few of these stars shine. I have worked out two choices : Work hard and earn like a ‘fit for nothing else’ money-holic, OR, work-out hard to impress a good-looking daughter of a m(b)illionaire. šŸ˜› . The latter sounds interesting though! šŸ˜€

The partial Bucket list.

  1. I think lot of things are going through your mind. And the bucket list you made now itself is enough to make your whole life interesting.
    /*Perform as a villain opposite Himesh Reshammiya and kill him in that movie*/ then you will be hero in the hearts of all of whom watching the movie šŸ˜€

  2. šŸ™‚

    Every once in a while I go thru the same thoughts. I crave for change and I remember irritating my mom with those rants.

    Now when I feel like this I go for shopping šŸ˜‰

    BTW I also have a desire to be proficient in writing with my left hand

    And I wish ur desire to be the villian against we know whom šŸ˜‰ comes true šŸ˜€

  3. Nice list. Did u watch the movie recently and decided to write the list?
    My full support and best wishes killing Himesh. But dude Priyanka???? Go for Katrina instead. šŸ™‚
    All the best dear for fulfilling ur bucket list.

  4. You have done the hardest thing – to come up with a bucket of list (That’s the hardest – believe me). Now just go ahead and achieve them one by one…. including the himesh thing (In the studios, of course!)

    Destination Infinity

  5. I thought the bucket list should have things to do that are attainable. I am not discouraging you buddy, but ARE YOU CRAZY šŸ˜€ !!!!

    Nice list man, please kill Himesh even if you arnt the villain. and during your evng with Priyanka, can you please refer my name too šŸ˜‰

    and btw, you sing??????????

  6. Err….High hopes I must say. I agree with Vimal. šŸ˜› Some of your things are very much possible but then you should forget Himesh and Priyanka. šŸ˜›
    But then, on second thoughts, what’s wrong in dreaming?

  7. @All
    I am overwhelmed at the support to get rid of the nasal nuisance! šŸ˜€

    My mind is always swarmed with thoughts. So much so, that i had to think for an hour as to what wishes of mine should come up in the bucket list. šŸ˜‰

    I too do the same thing to my mom now… constantly pestering her to listen to me and make a list coz i’m lazy… šŸ˜› somehow, i could get myself to work sometime and present a small list, which actually is a part of a big one… šŸ˜€

    I did have a bucket list b4 too… but was propelled to give it more importance after watching the movie recently. Priyanka is my favorite… and as for Kat, i think i can have the best of both worlds… šŸ˜›

    Destination Infinity
    Thnx a lot dude! I’ll remember kicking him hard once for u… šŸ˜‰

    Dude… most of the things are possible (except the lion one i think coz, the forest guards cud catch me šŸ˜› )
    And Yeah… i sing. Not a pro tho… just developed exercising my vocal chords from a pretty young age… and i’ll give all my time to listen to top class music…
    I like to sing the songs i compose, the most for near-obvious reasons. šŸ™‚

    Dare to dream, Care to achieve… daring is finished, lemme see when i can start the “Caring’ part… šŸ˜›

  8. šŸ™‚ nice list dude.. even i owuld love to go for a bungee jumping .
    killing himesh ?? lol ..
    the movie would be a super hit ..
    u will make a fortune , and u can get other things in the list with that money .. šŸ˜€

  9. I was about to write a post about my list but then it’s not full yet :p
    We grow wiser with age, the oldest sees through his open heart.
    One movie I would like you to see is “Amelie”. It’s in French but believe me it’s worth the watch and you will feel in high spirits after the end.

    Good to know that GIMP helped you.

  10. “Shop till the shop-owner drops.”
    That was unexpected !! =P

    The best one was – “Perform as a villain opposite Himesh Reshammiya and kill him in that movie.”
    LOL !!

    Did you like the movie btw ?? The bucket list ???
