While I am alive…

5 Jul

I watched the movie ‘The Bucket List’ a couple of months ago and the subject wasn’t an unfamiliar one. There have been ‘n’ number of movies that were based on the same lines but it was touching. When storytellers plagiarize such subjects over and over again, they leave us thinking and seeking the deeper realms of humanity where the varied degrees of materialism fail to play an effective modest role.
All pathological bugs aren’t entitled to do the math to balance out how much you have saved up in the bank, they don’t even look at what caste or race you belong to, what language you speak and like all other schisms unnatural they don’t discriminate.
The reason why the movie was called what it was called is because Carter (Freeman) makes a list of all the things that he wishes to do before he “kicks the bucket”. So I thought I would write mine too since I saw Aishu do it :D. So here it goes…

1). Drive an auto at least once !
2). Publish a book at 21 which would become an instant bestseller for a long time to come.
3). Film a documentary in Afghanistan.
4). Get one of my films to be screened at the Film Festivals – Cannes/Venice/Toronto or just all three.
5). Be a celebrity guest on Oprah.

6). Learn to play the guitar and then perform it on stage in front of millions.
7). Watch the sun rise from a hill top.
8). Trek the Himalayas just to smoke weed.
9). Go on a ghost hunting spree to Austria and England.
10). Feel like a million bucks !

11). Be on top of the game.
12). Plan a getaway and not let anyone know about it.
13). Travel the world for free.
14). Be smart enough to count cards in a gamble for which I also wish I was a whiz at Math. πŸ˜›
15). Create tension like Speilberg !

16). Be a part of the big change (a good one ofc.)
17). Bungee jump from a cable car in Switzerland.
18). Get a flat toned tummy and a belly button πŸ˜€
19). Scuba dive !!!
20). Win an argument with Amod.

Wish this list is not just a list
