Wish 1 - To learn surfing...

Ever since I have been to the beaches of Bali and have seen the might of Ocean as a fierce and powerful force of nature, I developed a fear of the same. 
The mammoth volume of water that is contained by an ocean and the tremendous force by which that volume moves in the form of waves especially during high tides simply gives me goose bumps.
Honestly having seen just buckets or at max tanks of water in our daily life , and then have to look and compare  the amount of water that an ocean contains in itself, it makes you realise how insignificant humans or for that matter land mass is compared to water bodies.
I just get too intimidated when I am looking at that massive amount of water. Personally I feel that no other natural element can stand up against such a gigantic force.
When I was in a boat over the ocean or was skiing on a jet ski , I was scared with the thought that this huge mass of water won't take a second to drown me if I fell into it.And since then I have developed a faint wish to overcome that fear and take on the Might of that natural force.
I feel the most fascinating way  to do so will be to surf on its waves. Although even the thought of it is nerve wrecking at present but seriously I want to do that. I just want to take a week off and go to a beach where they teach surf and learn it.
Its just my dream to do so. To ride fearlessly on these waves, rise and fall with them , get splashed , almost drowned  but then emerge from it unscathed.
Taken from
But somewhere I know it won't be possible to do in immediate future and with marriage to happen in a year or two it will be next to impossible after that :(. Thats why I initially thought to title this post as Goal 1 but then reality stuck.


  1. :-O This post has two O's in it. 1. You fear the mighty ocean and water. Or, that you started your wishlist too.
    2. YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED (even if it's in an yr or so)
    :D :D :D
    And, btw, u never know if ur wife-to-be is also an adventure-lover and gives u company in ur wishlist. U know....hope against hope :P :)

  2. ya...why wont it be possible after marriage...u can try anything after marriage...marriage shouldn't be the end of time...u should marry someone who likes such things too...then both of u can enjoy doing them for the rest of ur life :)
    surfing is so cool !

  3. Now I feel like adding Surfing to my list for next year. :)
    And I believe in what Maverick said that marriage should not stop anything although it is almost impossible to find a person just like you ,so it is more of an adjustment but passion should not be a bargaining chip.

  4. @Hope -
    1. I used to fear it, now I am more in AWE of it. And yes you inspired me to do this... Thanks to you :)

    2. It has come to be inevitable now and as someone said "When life throw lemon at you, make lemonade" . So I have to be ready with glass, water and sugar :)

    All -
    Yes I agree with what you are saying regarding marriage is not end of it blah blah...and hope for the most of the people it should be that way...but somehow not happening for me and don't get me wrong I am not upset about it ...It may not happen the way you want but does not mean it aint good :)

  5. Jana Sir is right ..with marriage comes lot of responsibilities , and we become more risk averse ( both man and woman) , because we start thinking about savings, loan , car , house etc :P, and vacations are like planned an year in advance and for a week ;)...USUALLY! but i guess after initial settling phase and all things sorted out , if two persons have alike interests, things take off!

  6. Hahhaha! Loved ur metaphor about making a lemonade. Heheheh! Add more things to your list and let us also know what you'll accomplish this yr :)


    When Life gives you lemons :P Instantly reminded of you

  9. If you can swim, surfing is not dangerous. Just pick waves that aren't too big!

  10. Photos are so beautiful. Reflection of sunset are nice.
