The List

You never lose a dream, it just incubates as a hobby.
– Larry Page

Some people like to travel, so they have a bucket list of places they want to visit. Some love adventures so they a list of adventures things to do. Similarly, I like to learn different things. I want to be someone who knows a bit of everything. I don’t want to be Jack of all trades and I am not too ambitious to be Master in everything.

      Hey Yasha! I am working on 16th. I am riding lot of cycle and jogging too for a flat belly. You can help with other two – Yoga and Social work, I will definitely appreciate it.

        I am associated with The Art of Living past 7 years. Its one platform where i could do some really good social work. I got an opportunity to pioneer a project for Slum children in chennai to improve their Health, hygiene and behavioral changes through the programs they offer for Children. Got to witness some amazing transformation in these children.
        This is my experience.
        You can also join the organization wherever you are in the world. It has its exsistence in 152 countries. Also, they have some cool programs on Yoga which I have had personally undergone.

        hope you would like it. Log on to for more information.

        Please note: this is my personal suggestion. Nothing more to this.

    • Dhanashree says:

      Hey great!! Nice to know that you too are gonna prepare a list.
      I feel that, it isn’t really important to strike off all the things from the list, but what important is – to keep trying something. Rather than staying still.
