5 things I want to do before I die

1. Re-learn Sansktrit and study ancient Indian scriptures. I have mostly forgotten the Sanskrit I learnt at school. I have always been fascinated with the language and ancient Indian works. Studying them in the language they were written and drawing my own conclusions without being biased by any other interpreter, has been a childhood dream.

2. Author a book of fiction. I have always been fond of writing, and I wrote a number of short stories as a child. But somehow lost touch as I grew older. Would like to go back to writing fiction whenever possible.

3. Be a space tourist. Hoping space tourism becomes affordable within the next 3 or 4 decades.

4. Travel in a cruise liner. Travel by sea is a unique experience by itself. Would love to experience it first hand.

5. Make Arbit Choudhury a globally popular comic character. No explanation needed :-)

Tagging Nikhil, Abhishek and Manish again.

PS:- Today is my birthday. This is perhaps the loneliest birthday I have ever had, with almost no near and dear one around to celebrate with me. Today, I am getting nostalgic about the best birthday celebration I have ever had, 4 years back.

Update:- Nikhil, Abhishek and Alex (through a tag relay) have responded.

Well ... apart from you being physically lonely, the dozen people trying to contact you are not able to because of Airtel national outage.

Btw, if its a consolation, I too spent my birthday this year in a lonesome way in the small studio apt at Norwich :-(
