Top 10 Things to do before I die

Its a rare thing for people in my house apart from me to get a dream... At dinner today, suddenly, my dad remarked that he had a dream in which Lord Shiva told him that the world will end in 2012 at the occasion of his Maha Thandava. So what,I thought, If the world were to end in 2012, I would be only too happy to let go of my current responsibilities and jump onto fulfilling some important wishes of mine.
Sometimes I feel, people who know about the time of their death are lucky; like Sid in 180. They get to forego responsibilities guiltlessly and live every moment.
I was left thinking what would be the top things I would like to do before I die, shall I call it my bucket list!? I have a strong feeling this wishlist is subject to change till the minute of my death... Still, here we go:
1. Visit all the wonders of the world.
2. To meet Shah Rukh Khan and tell him how much he means to me.
3. To meet ARR and tell him how much I enjoyed Maa Tujhe Salam and wished that O Saaya song had won the Oscar and not Jai Ho.
4. To go to a disco with Mr. PJ and dance for Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai; also listen to Rishte to nahin song lying down on his lap.
5. To spend one full day with my friend Kaarthik and also attend his wedding.
6. To meet my Mr.Someone Special and watch Kadhal Konden movie with him.
7. To taste every alcoholic drink available.
8. To go rafting in the Ganges.
9. To reach the summit of Mt. Everest and stay there overnight.
10. To go down into the deep sea and touch the pearls and corals.

My Captain Planet

His poised self,
Cool and controlled,
Determination and unbendable will,
The long lines of his solid physique,
I lean against in times of frill,
He, the nourisher, the provider,
The source and support of all life,
For resources he has no dearth,
He is Earth.

Under his cool composure,
Burns the fire of passion,
The warmth spreads in me,,
Every vein and nerve,
His constructive fury,
Against any injustice, bordering danger, his actions,
Powered by fireful emotions,
His moulding smolder shall never tire,
He is Fire.

His chimeful speech,
Rings in my ears,
Bright and cheerful face,
His light-footed swift pace,
Bouncing along from flower to flower,
The cool spring breeze,
Quick intelligence and multiple talents,
He is the breath that feeds my soul,
He is wind.

His crystal-like eyes,
Sharp, piercing and reflecting,
I see in him the truth,
The pure mirror reflects,
He quenches the thirst of my parched heart,
The reliever of all diseases,
The rejuvenator of the world,
Free from sins,
He steals my love, the honest looter,
He is Water.

The vital force of life,
He is the power to struggle and strive,
Through him life thrives,
Compassion he spreads,
He is the sunshine,
Goodness he inspires,
Positivity he personifies,
The unknown, unseen living force,
In me and every living soul,
He is Heart.

Made of five elements,
The synergy overpowers singularity,
Each one bestowing their best,
He, in combination, becomes master of them all,
He is the ruler, He is supreme.
