हज़ारों ख़्वाहिशें ऐसी कि हर ख़्वाहिश पे दम निक‌ले
बहुत निक‌ले मेरे अर‌मान लेकिन फिर भी कम निक‌ले
– ग़ालिब
Thousands of longing, each one to die for.
Many were fulfilled, but still too few!
- Galib

Here is a partial list of all the wishes I'd like to fulfill before I die. Prepared it after watching Dasvidaniya and saw such a page on Kartik Mistry's Blog. 
(Note - The below list is prepared keeping my budget in mind.)

  • Visit all the states of my country - India.
  • Write a book.
  • Visit all the 7 wonders of the world.
  • Donate money in some hospital for treating poor children free of cost or at negligible cost.
  • Learn to play Piano and Flute.
  • Even though I have studied in English Medium throughout my schooling and college, I love my mother tongue Gujarati more than English and I would like to make conscious efforts to keep Gujarati alive.
  • Learn to catch snakes.
  • See India-Pakistan border in Kutch (Gujarat), Rajasthan, Punjab and Kashmir.

  1. ચી.ભાઈ યશપાલ,

    મારા 'મધુ પુંજ' ઉપર વર્ચ્યુઅલ પિયાનો મુકેલ છે, જે તમે કોમ્પ્યુટરના કી બોર્ડથી વિના મુલ્ય વગાડી શકો છો. ૧૯૬૪ની સાલમાં ભાવનગરની ભાવસિંહજી પોલીટેકનીકની અર્ધવાર્ષિક ટર્મ ફી ૫૬ રૂપિયા ના વાંધા હતા એટલે ૧૩ મહિના મુંબઈમાં રિજર્વ બેંકમાં કારકુની કરી. પછી એવું શું બન્યું કે સિંગાપોર, મલેશિયા, થાઈલેન્ડ, ઇન્ડોનેશિયાયા, કોરિયા, જાપાન, શ્રી લંકા, દુબઈ, બહેરીન, કુવૈત, અમેરિકા, કેનેડા અને મેક્ષિકોની ભૂમિ અનેક વખત ઘમરોળી ! બાળપણ ના બધાજ સપના મારા જીવનમાં કેવી રીતે સાકાર થયા તે જાણવા મારી ઈ-બુક 'અંતરના ઊંડાણે' થી વાંચવા મારી તમોને ભલામણ છે. તમારા પણ સપના જરૂર સાકાર થશે, જો સાચી દિશામાં આગળ વધશો તો - yK

We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook

Updates - 8

Updates - 7 can be found here Winter has approached. And as usual, I'm motivated to remain fit. Hope this time the motivation remains throughout the year. Have started running. However, it's a different story that I'm running less and walking more. But the important thing is, the needle is moving. Apart from running, have also started doing a few stretching and upper-body exercises . My initial goal is to complete 5 km run. Became member of Central Library, Gandhinagar and read 2-3 books namely, 1. The Palace of Illusions 2. Curfewed Night and currently reading Akoopar (Gujarati). In between I also read Chetan Bhagat's The Girl in Room 105 Rudraraj and Rivanshi are not here in Gandhinagar. So I can engage myself in Running and Reading. Lets see what happens once they are here.  Eagerly waiting for this years' Ahmedabad National Book Fair. This time it's in November (winter season) rather than May (Summer season).

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

 Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving. And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world. How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them? A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting. Here are a few points that I found worth sharing: 1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured. 2.
