Wishes To Be Fulfilled
Travelling places has been one of my greatest wishes since forever. I want to live in different places for short planned periods of time experiencing and imbibing the culture there, and then come back when I miss home. I want to taste every regional dish, buy spices and curios, and street shop from every locality. I want to gain enough experience to be a travel blogger, or write my own travelogue.
In my ‘to-be-travelled’ list there are old monuments of India with inscriptions and intricate architecture, temples and other places of worship and faith, palaces with a long history and many legends, lagoons and backwaters rich in natural treasures and scenic beauties, shopping havens, museums, bridges, towers, hill stations and many more. I want to visit a winery, the coral reefs, the Japanese temples, Korean Buddhist monasteries, and go literally on a world tour. And I’ve planned to save a small part of my earnings every month for a long vacation once a year.
I want to take up a short term course in cooking or photography, to adopt a new hobby and channel my overwhelming emotions out in a good way. Both cooking and photography have always fascinated me. Though I do a bit of beginner’s tricks and trials on my own, I want to feel the air when cooking lovers and photographers unite. Apart from expressive writing, I find these two things worthy and substantial enough to save myself from negative energies- bouts of depression and anger outbursts. I find certain unexplainable peace in chopping vegetables and indulging in the different flavors, though I’m not that good at it. Cooking has proved kind of a therapy, calming my nerves and helping me putting my thoughts on the brighter side of life, and clicking pictures of the surrounding feels like healing from self inflicted emotional scars.
I want to work sincerely for a cause, devote my time for a project that I believe in. Subtle ones like ‘The Happiness Project’, ‘Project Forgive’, ‘Celebrating Gratitude’, ‘the Week of Giving’, etc., or projects to promote less known works of brilliant art. I had once participated as a blogger in a DoRight cause, but I want to involve more than just my writing, may be just work in the team getting inspired and led by visionary ideas. May be it’s the need of being needed, or the want of a sense of purpose in life, I want to invest a part of me in something that I believe.
There’s an unending list of things I want to do in this lifetime. Hope I can do that, one fine day.
