101 things that I want to do in life

With little introduction to the title of the post, I am going to start typing right away...
just two things: 
1. These are in no particular order of priority/ relevance... 
2. I am probably not going to type 101 things at one go...
3. (I know there were supposed to be 2 things, but I just changed my mind). I am posting after a loooooong time, not because I didnt feel like, but because in the effort to keep it anonymous, I shifted the authorship of the blog to a new gmail ID and then forgot the new username and password :D.... but (very luckily) just when I had completely given up on efforts to retrieve it, I just manage to recover my uname/pswd!!!!!
4. (ok, I have already broken the '2' limit). For the record, I am posting from Istanbul, in transit to Dusseldorf (Germany). I am comfortably seated in a business lounge; and while I am trying not to flaunt it, the real fact is that contrary to my own expectations (that I will be ambivalent to B-class), I actually loved it; no reasons for guessing why..... why because, I managed to peacefully sleep for 5 straight hours in a flight :) 

Now, to the subject matter of the post...

1. Start and actively manage a gardening blog
2. Start writing poetry again. - hindi poetry preferably
3. Try my hand at quilling. I just bought a quilling kit. I think they have just started selling those in India... I am yup so happy!!
4. Euro trip with 'AM'
5. Join dance classes
6. Learn Indian classical dance (pref Bharatnayan/ kuchipudi...) some day..
7. If I have a daughter, I will enable her to learn Indian classical dance (dont gimme that look, I am not 'forcing'  my yet-unplanned-unborn-may-be-a-girl child.... I said I will 'enable' her ;-)
8. Want to be a mother - well I will discuss this on a separate post someday
9. Speak fluent Bengali... I can speak in bits and pieces currently
10. I will keep my hair short n'sexy when I am 50+
11. Do a temperature-raising salsa number.... now this one is preferably with 'AM' again; but, he has two left feet, so... I mean I have to do the number anyhow!!! 
12. Be a good manager, a good boss 
13. Learn swimming... at least enough to make use of a pool!
14. Be a sexy mom
15. Sketch better, sketch extensively
16. Be good at my office stuff - no matter what I do, I should do it well... very well
17. See Ajanta Ellora
18. See Hampi
19. See Ladakh someday, though its difficult for some undisclosable reasons :( 
..... to be continued...
