Lady Oliver proudly declares that God miraculously opened his ear-wax clogged ear and ACTUALLY heard me! ( he he.. hope his short-sighted eyes don’t read THIS! Kidding sweet heart, you mean the world to me.. er, yes, I AM addressing God!)

LOT(Lady Oliver Twist, duh!) got amazing second semester results. Two- she got a copy of ‘Gitanjali’ by Rabindranath Tagore as a participation gift!!! Three- She got a surprise gift- a most flattering letter from C 17. God, thanks for helping me fly. Thanks to C 17 and his friend… :)

Now as promised, Lady Oliver Twist- Part two… ;)

*LOT urgently wants to change her XP name from ‘Disk Boot Failure’ to something romantic/ creative/ intellectual. (Sample these- ‘The persistence of memory’. I know XP doesn’t allow such a long name. But it happens to be my favourite painting by eccentric Salvador Dali. ‘Moonstruck!’- That happens to be my cat’s name. Um… I don’t have one. But if I had, it would have been that! Yes… Moonstruck with an exclamation! ‘pehla nashaa’ for I love ..…. the song! He he… ;) ‘I believe I can fly’ ‘If only there were no deadlines’ ‘My wish is your command’ etc… But she can’t cos she promised God she would retain the name till the end of the year! Venduthal-la ennakku vyavasthai illai! :)

*LOT wants to go on a trip to some foreign country.

*LOT wants to give a big hug to her amma for being the support for every decision, every success of my life! Amma... I LOVE you! :*

*She wants to travel by her college bus, sitting alone on that lone seat right in front, looking out at the cold morning and hug her bag close, dream and read verses on nature…

* She wants to overcome the tears that well up her eyes every morning when she has to drag herself to her college bus stop! Sigh sigh! If not for my friend, saviour and senior in my stop who sometimes picks me up and drops me back EVERYDAY, I wouldn’t live!

* Wants to see the college cows race each other in front of the gate as it happened today! HILARIOUS!!!

*Revamp her wardrobe in red cos she’s supposed to look pretty in red! Ahem! My friend said so! I’m far from modest, if you guys haven’t realized and I’m unashamed of it!

* Spread joy into lives by my presence.

* Meet Rahul Dravid again and tell him that this is the Sandhya who’s started to message him before every tour!

* Sing a song for Rahman’s music ( chorus kooda ok Thala! ) Enakku rumba nenaps thaan ponga!

*Act in the Harry Potter movie as Parvati Patil and waltz with Daniel Radcliffe and er… if possible Tom felton(ah… malfoy!!!!) or if all this is too much, then atleast as a ‘kuppa perukkarava’(sweeper) in Diagonal Alley! :D

* Get the first copy of Harry Potter and the final-book-to-be from the ‘witchy’ hands of J.K.Rowling herself in her castle.

* Meet Nirmal Shekar

* Own Swades, Life is Beautiful, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, Papa Kehta Hain, Azhagiya Theeye, Dil Se, Kannathil Muthamittal(Vans, anti-copyrighting cd-ya vaangu inume. Loosu! Loosu! *shakes head in disbelief*), Anniyan(for Remo’s sake… Ah!!! Drool drool!), Harry Potter series, LOTR series, Hum Hain Raahi Pyarke, Hungama, RULES(oh… it’s de COOLEST movie, I’ve seen! And the rules are simply great and well-devised. After all Dadi ka medicine kab work nahi kiya yaar? :) etc

* Join a library. Read at least a book a week!

*Own Music World, Landmark (both outlets! ;D), Higginbothams, Raghavendra Musicals (neighboring shop, vasadiya irukkum! :D)

* Try to write sarcastic poetry!

*Slap someone with anger. I want to know if I can…

*Cook up for all at home!

*Blog my dream post-‘ gabbar Singh’

*Breathe life into my Kindred Spirits’ Promotion Club. It EXISTS. Want to group in more people who’ve read and are as passionate about Anne Shirley-Blythe of ‘Anne of Green Gables’ and the subsequent book.

*Publish my story ‘The Land of Moonbeams’ after completing it!

*Learn to sweep and wash the floor properly cos if Arch doesn’t pay, I can always have a fall-back options. And I’M NOT JOKING!!!

*Take a print out of all my posts, poetry and prose!

*Update all my creative writing books!

*dance in the rain in a grove to the tune of the pattering raindrops with a group of birds as audience.

*make my movie ‘joy ride’ with Arvind! Producers pl contact me!!!

*Make that movie I’ve wanted to make from my 4th. I devised the story also then only. It’s called ‘The Bulbul Birds’. Very Hansel and Gretel-ish. But still want to make it for retaining the child in me.

* Retain the child in me. To not let the perversion, distraction and pollution of the big bad world spoil the unadulterated mind, heart and soul that the creator created in me in that “infinitesimal second that bore me into the world”, to quote myself!

*Learn to play the keyboard professionally! Rahman will do! If not, connect me to Yanni please…

*Learn to love purely, trust faithfully and wait patiently. The firsttwo I’ve already mastered. The last seems difficult!

*Watch a rainbow spanning the sky from atop a mountain.
*Touch the clouds and feel their sponginess
*Hot air ballooning
*BUNGEE JUMP!!!!!!!!
*Roller coaster ride again!
*Have a room of my own.
*Live in a castle with the love of my life! ;)
*Get a perfect nose! I’m generally not jealous AT ALL!!! Except on three accounts. I’m jealous f Aishwarya Rai’s nose, ShahRukh Khan’s wife and Moron’s sense of humour penned the way he only can! And I BADLY WANT A PERFECT NOSE. Offtrack.. My nose ACTUALLY seemed quite near perfection today. It looked all slender and ‘chiseled’. I was wondering if noses change their shape or become thin. Pl Pl tell me… My mom said they do. But I know by that smile that she was only humouring me! :(
*Step-cut my hair(er… did I already mention that???)
* Ride a bike on Gemini fly over, letting my hair lose, wearing a leather jacket and leather pants, with a bandanna tied across my head, sporting a cooling glass, chewing gum and listening to music!
*Buy an Apple i-pod!
*Buy a Discman!
* Take a lonely walk on the beach
*Steal time for myself to spend with myself!
*Write letters to myself, seal them p and read them later (ala Anne Shirley,Calvin and a few others.)
*Inspire people.
*Be remembered
*Be loved
*Be a good Human Being
*Be pampered
*Be gifted all of the above!!!


Well, that’s about it now!
