If not now, then when ?

 

act your age

All of you must have heard of the concept of the bucket list. It’s a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket ie shuffle off your mortal coil, move on, break on through to the other side…..basically die.

But before you do that you need to make sure that you live the most awesome life you can, because if you don’t, then what would have been the point ??

 

Some of us friends were travelling in North India a while back, all of us close to 50 from one side or the other. We were travelling by train with all its attendant facilities and problems thereof…… and of course eventually we wondered whether in the Indian context a Lota list made more sense than a bucket.

So here is a Lota list that I have put together with some help from friends, old and new, all clearly mad (why else would they be my friends?!). Archana Sinha/ Bhatia wanted to be named for her valuable contribution (I won’t tell you which number on the list haha) and although Charu did not say so I am sure she will complain if I don’t mention her…. so, hi Charu (we have been friends so long that we no longer know who is the bad influence on whom!!). Thank you Geetu for as many as three items on the list 🙂

older i get

Here is the lust, sorry, list of things to do —because if not now, then when ??

This list is strictly adults only and hey, no judging!!

chill pill

(Un –surprisingly, given that most items on the list were shared by middle class Indian women around 50 years of age, brought up to believe in and practise heterosexual monogamy, many items revolve around different sexual experiences still awaited !)

  1. Have wine with Milind Soman……in a bathtub (Just to clarify—this is NOT from my list! Some of us sapiosexuals ( Brainy is the new Sexy ?) would prefer to have Elon Musk or Shashi Tharoor on our list…. but for a chat only. Maybe with kokum soda haha.. and some cake. Don’t enjoy wine and hate tubs… )
  2. Go back to work
  3. Take early retirement
  4. Have a sex change operation
  5. Dress more flamboyantly
  6. Get botox
  7. Go bald
  8. Become thin
  9. Become fat
  10. Have sex with someone of your own sex
  11. Go on a date with a super rich person
  12. Sex on the beach
  13. Skinny dipping, Himalayan base camp, para diving
  14. Travel to Africa
  15. Get a tattoo

‘If not now, then when?’ is usually followed by ‘if not you, then who??’ So get on with it!
