Life is not as short as it is made out to be. But surely, there would be little life left within you after you cross 60. Live in today and believe in today.
Here are some things you should do before you die so that there’s no regret while you rest in your grave:
i. Stand before the mighty pyramids or the hypnotic Taj: Make sure to set a date with the Egyptian pyramids and India’s Taj Mahal. They are truly one-of-a-kind and truly historical.
ii. Learn to play an instrument: Music is the greatest magic- these are true words said by Albus Dumbledore. Learning to play a violin or the piano can give new lyrics to your life.
iii. Partake in some extreme sport: Bungee jumping, gliding, scuba diving, rafting- pick up at least one extreme sport before crashing out of the mortal life.
iv. Ride a camel: It may sound bland, but once you are atop this humped ‘ship of the desert’, you will know why it is more thrilling than any of those extreme sports mentioned above.
v. Go for a safari: Go to Africa to meet the lions, or better, travel to the Amazon Rain Forest and say hello to an anaconda!
vi. Swim with the shark: Just inches away from those deadly jaws, but safe behind a cage, do you need another reason why to go for it?
vii. Dance under the rain: With a girlfriend or with a boyfriend or with none, this one is something everyone must do at least once after he/she grows up! (you must have done it on numerous occasions as a child).
viii. Write a book: Whether you like romance, horror, politics or traveling, it won’t be a bad idea to pen a book and see it getting published.
ix. See the northern light: You will have to see it to believe it! The most breathtaking natural sight on Earth! You won’t get a chance after you die.
x. Have a Scotch session with your friends: You may be a complete teetotaler, but at least for once, if not twice or thrice or umpteen times, have a get-together in a bar or at home and dive into the Black Dog Scotch whisky. It will be an evening to remember! Learn to live-in-style and drink to forget & forgive! For more information about the Scotch label, click here or here.
