7. be a biker (big cruiser) - probably in another 10-12 years when my kids can take care of themselves at home, I will bike again with my wife.

If I had 20 more years to go, my to do wishlist will be :

1) Live alone without anyone literally alone.
2) Earn a bit of money to fulfill my need of Roti, Kapda and Makaan.
3) Pray to God a lot to get Moksha, so that I dont have to come back into this world again. Just permanent peace, that all I would like to have.

I like!!! Simple & uncomplicated.

My wife questioned about something yest that changed our perception on HOW much we have as compared to others.
Me, wife & kid were driving to mom's place in the evening. I stop for the red light & as usual there are beggars all around.
A woman with a child comes to our car for alms, I usually give change, if I have it. Well, this time I did not & the woman moved on to the next vehicle infront of us.
While looking at this woman, my wife suddenly says to me "Isn't it funny.....(for a moment I don't realise what she is saying)......what decides whether we are here (in the car) or there (in place of that woman)"!!!
Her statement had a massive effect on me since then, & I am counting all my blessings.

But a little wishful thinking never did hurt anyone right ....I wanna Ferrari, Ducati, Tag Heuer.......nahhhh!!!

1. Good Health.
2. To be able to enjoy this journey called life and be able to smile in all its ups and downs.
3-10. If I can have the above two, I'll manage the rest.

10 things I want in my life:
  • 6.2L supercharged Corvette ZR1
  • Dodge Viper ACR
  • Porsche 911 GT3 RS
  • BMW M5
  • Jaguar E-Type
  • Aston Martin V12 Vantage
  • Lifetime free supply of premium gasoline
  • Lifetime free insurance for these cars
  • A garage to keep all these cars safely
  • A driver's license which is valid everywhere (I think my current Canadian driver's license should cover that)
