Everyone has few things in their minds to do before they die. Some are just obnoxious, some making our lives worth living. Mine are crazy, adventurous, and lame.

Here’s the list:

  • Visit an active volcano (which contains actual red hot boiling magma).
  • See a tornado.
  • Feel an earthquake (which till now has happened only twice).
  • Visit either or both the poles.
  • WATCH AURORA (this should have come first).
  • Around the world trip (in more than 80 days)!
  • Go in Space.
  • See the Milky Way from Earth (Second one).
  • Watch snowfall.
  • If not complete, partial trip to Mt. Everest.
  • Sleep in an actual haunted place.
  • Write a book.
  • Catch a ghost on tape or picture.
  • Get stranded in France, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland.
  • Communicate with Aliens (if they exist).
  • Get abducted by one.
  • Have my own small company.
  • Make my parents proud of me.
  • Own a McDonald.
  • Fridge with never ending Lindts and Goldkenns and Freys.
  • Get myself placed in Hall of Fame (Guinness or Hollywood or Madame Tussads 😛 or even Le Louvre! )
  • Visit a glacier.
  • Children of Bodom and Skrillex  Excision (my latest dubstep hottie) gig!
  • Own a mansion at a place where I can see the galaxy and aurora.
  • Squeeze a white rat (obvious in a lovey dovey manner) and check whether their eyes actually pop out like they show in cartoons.
  • Own a shop where it’s just handmade papers, stamps, sequins, strings and cards.

Okay. I’ll confess from the bottom of my heart.

I love the exam season. I love how we get up everyday, pick up a book and start mugging things up. I love how, after the exam, we go back home – complaining how sad the paper was and whoever made it, should be electrocuted. Go to sleep, wake up, and start the same schedule all over again. The pressure of clearing exams is pretty much comforting in itself. Nobody cares how shabby you look (although I have seen this trait for girls in college, they tend to over dress during exams) or how much beard you’ve grown. The all nighters, texting friends how much syllabus they are leaving etc., is just satisfying.

Okay, we do whine about how it keeps going on and on – even more than stone-age might have lasted – but I won’t deny the fact, it just keeps me going in life. At least, I have something to look forward to. I mean look at me right now, vacations (yay! :|) are on, and nothing is motivating me to do something constructive. Even though if I started jotting down points, I’ll probably end up with incalculable list of things to get done and over with.
But pah! I’m just sitting, eating, sleeping and going through the news feeds from my friends on Facebook, reading how they are going to places to celebrate the end-of-exam time (few are still holidaying and few already got done with), few partying out with friends all day long or some leaving for their post-grad or jobs etc. And I’m just stuck here, with my silly brother – who hit me so hard yesterday, that I ended up crying (LOL on me!) and who doesn’t talk to me if I crept in the tiny space between him and the end of the bed.

*The part where I started losing it BIG time*

Fuck Indian society, to be honest. I hate how people are shallow on almost everything. I hate how we have to stick around with parents till we don’t get married or get a job out of your hometown. I hate the fact, that we have to live up with our folks money. I mean cmon, people, get a bloody fucking life. Open up. You see a couple getting cozy – guy is cheap and girl’s a slut. You see a girl wearing short skirt or shorts or anything revealing, it’s a ritual to get stared from all generations – and mostly in a negative way. You can’t step out after a certain period of time to meet your friends. People speak utter shit about you if someone’s jealous of you for something. I hate every moment of it. To be at the top, you must have greens ready to throw in hand, beauty or brains (not necessary even if it’s just beauty), swanky mansion with blings and expensive rides etc. How can you say India’s progressing if people don’t progress with their mindsets?

*The part where I regain my conscience*

India has a rich culture heritage where people from all over the world come to find their inner peace (well at least in few places). And people reach where they are with their efforts. Yes, few were born with platinum spoons in their mouth, but with the rest of the society, it’s hard work  and luck here and there. And I shouldn’t expect to have a win-win situation all the time. There will be defeats, points where you would just want to give up in life, but that’s the whole point of living right? And well, you can’t even expect people to change in a night too. If people are narrow-minded, then why fuss. Just get up and face it. They won’t change, you have to. Adapt to the environment, mold yourself accordingly. World, itself will start looking good. And one shouldn’t get intimidated by others. You are special in a way, just have to find it. Also, stop having issues with people around you. There are definitely million things about which you can worry about. Just ignore it and enjoy life.

So, overall I just realized, how bad hunger can strike your thoughts.

MORAL: Never stay hungry!
