Tagged

My first tag comes from Gaurav...Thanks a lot Gaurav :)...

I am supposed to write down ten things I miss. Also, a list of other ten things I would like to happen to me in the next ten years...

I miss

Ahmedabad in general

College, the tekri and LR 12 in particular.

I also miss my zoology professors- Momim, Robin and Sharad Sir- and the two peons who helped during the practicals- Piyushbhai and ... :( cant recall the name now...

I miss the college gang. Heck.. I am getting sore over the winter days in college...

I miss my home- Not much the family (for we talk almost every other day) but the bungalow. I mean, my house, the garden, the hall and the bedroom where I slept beside aaji...

I miss being irresponsible with elan.
(I am still irresponsible, but I am now accountable. I hate that. I miss the inborn clumsiness which I and everyone took granted for. )

Missing a few incomplete pieces from the past.

What I look fwd to / want in the next ten years...

A piece of land, a good bungalow, a dog or two, a flock or hens, a huge enclosure for my budgies and a well-designed aquarium in the garden. 1991-92 Paramdham revisited, in short.

For the above to happen, I will get some kick-ass professional position.

Go abroad for a short educational stint.

I want to visit Romania via Istanbul. And a Euro tour...

Perhaps, just about, go the mommy way.

The tag goes to the bum, phish, dip, necropolis.... Also baruk, gaizabonts and all those people whose blogs I love to read...
If you think ten is a big list, like I thought initially, you can stick to five...

i`m also hoping for an Euro tour by 2010..its such an wonderful place to catch up...

dharmabum said...

hey thats a tough one u gave me - sometimes, i feel - guiltily so - that i don't miss anything.

- tentacles- LR-12 = Lecture room 12. Tht ws perhaps one of the smallest lecture rooms in the college, excluively meant for TY Zoo classes.. we were a small batch, i guess 25 at the most, and I had the most awesome time of my life in LR and on the tekri (the tekri is a now extinct place which ws a series of steps right opposite to the canteen. we were a gang of 20-25 people who spent all our time out of classes on the tekri.) ah, there i go again.. lucky u, still in college..

zahid-- yeah, most definitely i will..

gaurav- thnks for tagging me!

dip- wud be to ur blog soon.. havent enabled the gmail invite yet, but tht shud be pretty soooon... how ws the dance?

again, tentacles- No!

arwindh- thnks... :)

bum- non committal! tht's good. also, not missing is strange, but good too.. dont they write all such things in the big fat god books?

'visit Romania via Istanbul. And a Euro tour..." been there done that(most of it).

Good Luck & Best wishes..
