Read a post recently on THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE which inspired me to prepare my own wish list. Although I do not have any plans or timeframe in mind as to when these activities must be completed but there’s no harm in listing them now, at least to remind myself to finish few before I close my eyes forever!!!

Thanks Jojo for sharing your blog!

So here’s a list of things I think I must do before I die:

1.       Stay fit for life

2.       Sooner than later move to my flat in Pune

3.       Adopt a child

4.       Spend evenings with friends on weekends

5.       Marry love of my life

6.       Resign from my current job without a job in hand

7.       Work for IBM (my dream company) one day
