"Tag!" time...

Okay, I have been tagged by Matangi Mawley and I am required to pen down;

10 things I am missing in life right now: Ah, tough one. I am not one to 'miss' anything in life but here goes nothing!

1.) My older brother, who I hardly get to see each year. It is another thing that my temper tends to fly at least once in the few days that I get to spend with him.

2.) My paternal grandfather and his older brother (Periya Thatha); two of the finest gentlemen I have known and my sincere well-wishers.

3.) My childhood; something I will never get back. The days spent in Vadodara and Kolkata (erstwhile Calcutta). Reminds me of the following lines by Stephen Foster;

Gone are the days
When my heart was young and gay.
Gone are my friends
From the cotton fields away.
Gone from this place,
To a better land I know.
I hear their gentle voices calling:
Old Black Joe

4.) My first school- Humpty Dumpty; (stop laughing!) and one Mrs. Ila Mukherjee ("Ila aunty" as I used to address her)

5.) And how can I forget Calcutta Boys' School... Not easy to describe a school such as that in a few words. 

6.) to 10.) Nothing else. Period.

10 things I want to achieve within a decade: To me, a success- however small- is an achievement. Small pleasures in life; something many people fail to take pride in. It is these small successes that give you a much needed boost when your spirits are sapped.

1.) Anger management.

2.) A Masters/Management degree from some place WAY better than the one which will confer upon me my Baccalaureate degree.

3.) Hopefully, get into a Research field.

4.) Ensure my parents QUIT worrying... (That will be my biggest achievement!)

5.) Become a better individual- and make a difference.

Now, for the not-so-common things...

6.) Understand the tarot.

7.) Analyse dreams and handwriting.

8.) Have an OBE (no, it is NOT the Order of the British Empire!)

9.) Find out if something called the 'other side' actually exists.

10.) Get a better understanding of the universe and the possibility of time travel.

Now, I tag ArnavGiriPoornaPriyaa and Susmita
