If I get a Second chance


“When life gives us a 2nd chance and we must make use of it, always”. This has been often told to us.

Often we postpone our long cherished dreams due to various reasons: lack of time, lack of money, or sometimes some other work takes preference. And often those dreams of ours remain stashed in some corner of our hearts, gathering dust. Often by the time we find time to fulfill those dreams or wishes of ours, either that time has passed away or we have lost interest in it.

Then we think, “If only life gives me a 2nd chance, I would finish all my unfulfilled wishes/dreams”



Life, now-a-days are so uncertain and unpredictable that we feel life is too short to complete all our dreams, let alone dreams of people close to us and dependent on us. Sometimes while fulfilling their wishes, we sometimes tend to forget our dreams.

Each one of us has a long list of things to be done before life ends. Now-a-days it's called bucket-list. We write it down in our diary or in some corner of our heart/mind and forget about it.

Like others I too have a list of dos…

When I was a kid I was learning Bharatnatayam, as I always loved to dance. But due to some health issues I had to discontinue it. I always loved various kinds of dance forms, especially Salsa. It's the most romantic style of dance form. If I get a chance I would surely love to learn this dance form.

Since I was in 10th standard I was name as “double battery”, as I started wearing spectacles by start of academic year. It's been nearly 20 years now since I have been wearing specs. Another wish is to get rid of specs by doing LASIK, so that I can enjoy life without seeing through glasses.

My Dad always wanted to buy diamond earrings for my Mom, but we were never that financially stable. When I finished my college I had told them, I’ll get Mom those earrings with my salary. But alas, I never earned that much so that I can fulfill my Dad’s wish. Even now, I wish, if I get a good job I’ll buy Mom her diamond earrings.

Another big dream of mine is to do something for kids who are differently abled. Being a mother to a cerebral palsy child, I have always faced many difficulties finding treatments for her. Given a chance would love to do something for such kids, so that parents won’t have to go in search of facilities for their kids, and would find all facilities/treatments everything under 1 roof.

These are some of my dreams or wishes, which has taken a backseat due to daily hustle bustle of day-to-day routine. Another wish is I would love to spend a couple of days away from this busy city life, in some peaceful, serene place where there would be nature, fresh air and no chaos or tension, just nature, me and my loved one…

These are some of my dreams which if given a chance I would surely love to fulfill and make my loved ones happy and enjoy life to fullest.
