My Bollywood Inspired Bucket-List

My Bollywood Inspired Bucket-List

My affair with Bollywood dates back to the day I landed on planet Earth. Bollywood songs sneaked into my mom’s lullabies from the corners of The Record Player, my father’s inseparable companion. As I opened my eyes to explore the world, larger than life Bollywood movies miraculously tampered with my thoughts. Growing up with Bollywood was like a dream I didn’t want to be woken from.

Travelling the world with an open mind has always been my dream. The dream got wings when Lufthansa asked to share Blind Date with the world. How could my fetish with Bollywood stay away from my travel list? First of all, what is Blind Date with the world?
“Travelling to a place I’ve never been to yet has a strong possession in my mind. A place I know nothing about but would love to visit without hesitation.”
Lufthansa got me thinking and the best I could create was the Bollywood inspired bucket list.

Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone starrer Tamasha was shot in Corsica. I wish to visit a place that has a scenic coastline and adventurous hiking trails like this Mediterranean island.
A dream destination for sure. 😍

My travel dreams are hacked by Spain’s beautiful road trips and breathtaking sea-diving. Thanks to the crazy trip of the protagonists in ‘Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara’. Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol have moments of their lifetimes as the story unfolds.

My blind date with the world must have adventure and excitement like showcased in this movie.

I’m literally crazy to go on a ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ trip with friends. Boys in the movie get perfect clicks at mysterious Chapora Fort in Goa. I want to explore nature’s hidden gems through my blind date with the world. Mystery adds enthusiasm to the travel vibes.

Ah! The never-ending bucket list gave a beautiful shape to my date with the world. I want more of everything from explorations. With dreams in my eyes, I’m waiting for a call saying,” Ja Simran Ja, jee le apni Zindagi;)”

Travel Beyond Horizon

Travel Beyond Horizon

Confined to the room eight by eight, I was lying in my bed pale and fragile. My freedom was snatched away by the expert doctor whose prescription included a week fixed in an isolated place. Pretty boring it was for a high-spirited person to freeze in a tiny square! My ambitions to travel in summer vacation were snubbed by seasonal flu.
I was waiting for the dull week to pass. And that was not too far.
Seventh-day got me excited for the remaining holidays. Feeling energetic, I was ready and raring to go.

“Here’s a parcel for you!” My brother came running in.

With my name written in bold letters, the parcel was bigger than I had ever received. “Who could have sent this?”
Murmuring to myself, I opened the parcel with curiosity. A typed letter and a few smaller packets popped up. The letter read,” This is in response to your application no. XCZR 768095 dated May 12, 2016. You are one of the few luckiest people shortlisted by NASA to space travel for predetermined days. Now read it once again in bold;)”
Next, I was sitting in a spacecraft with twenty odd passengers. More than introducing ourselves, we were busy figuring out the criteria of selection by NASA. As the spacecraft waved goodbye to our planet Earth, the gravity pull was horribly reduced. Those without belts were flying in the cabin like birds with little control over their movements. Realising that we were in space, boundless excitement and confusion gripped us. But that was something we had been dying to experience.

Once recovered my calmness, I tried to check how space looked from space. I could see millions of stars, point stars, some of them having colours. Galaxies, yes, I noticed many galaxies but it was not possible to spot constellations. The miraculous visit to space was at the top of my Bucket List and it truly was an enriching experience.

My brother was waking me up. To my astonishment, it was all dream. I was on earth and still not qualified by NASA for space travel! TV screen was displaying the last scene of ‘Interstellar‘.
