Hmm. 10 things? Isn't it a tad too long? Why not 5 or even 3 top things that you want to do before you die?

10 things in 20 years are too less to achieve.
Still let me try-
1.Nice car which satisfies the enthusiast in me (say a Audi).
2. Married with someone who prefer love and life over money.
3.-Send Mom n Dad on a world tour.
4.Get a dog which i always wanted since childhood.
5.Visit few exotic places worldwide in my list.
6.Manufacture something of my own.
7.Nice physique- actually need to maintain it all the time which is tough job.
8.Hopefully playing cricket and basketball for next 20 years as well.
9.A visit to himalayas,maybe not Mt. everest but as high as i can.
10. A sea Voyage to an unknown undiscovered place of peace.
Too optimistic!

Just an observation. Isnt it a paradox that, though we want to be rich and have loads of money, we dont want our girls to love money

1. Someday, my Dad to stand by my side, and say "I'm proud of you my son!"
2. Traverse the length of India on my Vespa (Edit: including Khardung La and Marsimek-La)

There are many dreams of mine (I'm still very young ), but these two top my wishlist. Remaining can queue...

There's a difference in loving your spouse and loving your spouse's money. The girl can have as much $$ as i've got provided it's not the $$ she love
Same applies to guys who marry rich girls. If it's for the money... then tch..tch..tch
