    5) Asked out a stranger
    6) Parasailed
    7) Ridden a horse

  2. Lol.. you do realise that if your future hubby sees this list , he knows he is going to be dumped soon right ? Point 75.

    And what about 92? Seriously. Before 30 ? Do you really want to :P

    Interesting list though .

  3. Wow, you’ve had a lot more fun than I’ve had anyway. But then again, there’s a long time to go before 30 comes, I’m hoping I’ll improve my score by then.

    You’ve changed baby diapers? Facebook was right then after all. Best Mom. :P

  4. @ Ruhi

    Although I agree with Nita, I went through your list anyway and ticked 68 things off. Then I wonder where all this time went. I was doing all this stuff you see.. :-)

  6. Reema- Yeah, it’s a humongous list for sure. Will wait for this tag on your blog.

    Sakhi- There are some that I wouldn’t wanna do- age no bar :P

    Suda- ok :)

    Arjun- That’s what everyone thinks about his/her life. This is the best we’re gonna get…better get used to it. ;)

    Arpan- You ate a freakin’ shark?? Seriously? I know all about your broken heart. ;)

    Swen- I didn’t Bold #75. :P (Not that it applies to me). And no, I don’t wanna do #92…ever.

    Nita- Great :) Why don’t you do that? I’ll tag you too.

    Ish- You have been tagged btw.

    You’ve changed baby diapers? Facebook was right then after all. Best Mom.

    Stop saying that :| I’ll remove you from my Facebook friend list.

    Nikhil- You are quite welcome.

    Shefaly- 68 things done? Wow. Please consider yourself tagged! I’ll edit my “tag list”.

    Lallo- Works! You are not yet 30. :P Now please reproduce this tag on your blog.

    Rohan- Great! thanks. :)

  7. There’s so much to do that lazyness is actually keeping me from making my list!!! And what an benchmark you’ve set!!

    Guess, I won’t turn inventive – I’ll just write 10 things that I really want to do before I turn 30…that should keep me up all night..:)

  9. Raman- I’ve merely ticked off stuff I’ve done. I haven’t gone about making my own list (like you did). That would require a lot of pondering. :)

  10. Ok I got depressed doing the tag. I have done only a few things. So I decided to let u know here only instead of letting whole blogosphere know :)

    08. Said “I love you” and meant it
    09. Hugged a tree
    13. Stayed up all night long and saw the sun rise
    19. Slept under the stars
    26. Had an uncontrollable giggling fit at the worst possible moment
    31. Screamed as loudly as you possibly can

    33. Seen a total eclipse
    38. Actually felt happy about your life, even for just a moment
    41. Taken care of someone who was drunk
    42. Had amazing friends
    52. Been heartbroken longer than you were actually in love
    59. Lounged around in bed all day
    64. Played in the rain
    68. Fallen in love and not had your heart broken
    94. Spoken more than one language fluently
    98. Passed out cold

    110. Broken someone’s heart
    128. Had your picture in the newspaper
    129. Changed someone’s mind about something you care deeply about
    130. Gone back to school
    132. Touched a cockroach
    137. Skipped all your school reunions
    146. Dyed your hair
    :( Thats it. Sigh!

  11. Suda- Nobody said #52 and #68 have to be mutually exclusive ;) Might be two different incidents, right? Who’s life I saved? The very person who was with me during #104- remember my accident early this year? My presence of mind might have actually saved us. The fact that I didn’t shut my eyes and preferred seeing everything in “slow motion”.

    Anshul- That’s all right :) Why don’t you blog about the things you have done or want to do? I know you only blog about your comics. Not sure if it will go with the theme of your blog.

    Arvind- That’s quite ok :)

    Reema- Dang! That’s not a small list? I would have liked you to do something on your blog :) Raman listed 10 things he wants to do before he turns 30. You wanna do that?

  12. Why is – 92. Buried one/both of your parents, om your list? :lol:
    That was one great list which the coming generations can refer to, so that they know how to live life. :)

    most of whats written on Suresh Gundappa’s blog is written by famous Osho, this guy shamelesly
    rips all the rewards, like he wrote it all himself, he also pretends that those photos
    are his own.
    is this copycatting allowed on that site?
    wouldnt it be honest to quote names?
    no, he takes all the prases, hahaha!

    “Suresh Gundappa” -just a tief

  15. I think you need to find more Amerian friends because we all know Indians can’t really party….they talk a big game but can’t put up. Get some Irish, German or Polish guys in there and watch that list change. Nerds.

    And this one is just stupid
    92. Buried one/both of your parents
