This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 12; the twelfth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

Given that we have seen people wish for different things from fairy tales to super star Rajinikath’s Baba,I always thought that I knew what a “wish” meant .But when I thought of writing a post on it things did not fall in place. Questions like what is the difference between a wish and a dream came up.So here is the exact meaning for the benefit of confused people like me.

“Feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen “ - is what my dictionary had to say on wish.Thats not exactly what I had in my mind!!!

Now that I know what exactly is a wish it’s time to come up with my wish list.Wishes of all kinds, from the small ones to the unrealistic ones have started flooding my mind.Lets start with our favorite topic Cricket. The first thing that comes to my mind is not India winning 2011 world cup (although it fits the definition of a “wish” perfectly) rather it is the complete ban on 20-20 that I wish to see.No one on this planet should ever play 20-20. That was a simple pick.

What about Afsal guru and Kasab? I wish our government Hangs both of them before another IC 814 gets hijacked to Kandahar.

What about census. Oh yeah!!! Big one isn't it ? Send those 20 million back. No two ways about it.

I might have gone with wish to see an unbiased media if my dictionary had defined wish as “Want something that will never happen” rather than “probably will not happen”.Okay! thats enough politics for two days!! Lets move on to the lighter ones.

Office - I wish I get to appraise my manager.(Please God, grant me this one!! I will never ask for anything else).And I would not mind 2 months vacation like how we used to have when we were at school.

Romance - My Father might read this post. So we will park this one for now.

What next...where am I heading? - I wish I knew that and I wish I could make a pick. This one is not as easy as the others topics.

Last one - I wish life becomes a little more certain,a little more dependable.

    Interesting wish list...

    Hey buddy..... I have a query here...

    Is it ok if a staunch Hindu paints an erotic painting of Hindu Goddess?
    If you dont believe it, read Kalidasa's "Kumarasambhavam" where he described parvathi in erotic literature..... same is the case with Valmiki's description of sita in Ramayana.....
    btw, why do we have so much erotic architectural temple walls/gopurams made by "Hindu" Sculptors

    I am not supporting Hussain(I have questions for him too) here, i would like to know your clarity of thoughts on these points.

    I think u r asking for too mch now :)
    Mayb the uncertainties of life makes it wat it is.. predictability will snatch all the surprises (nd i know shocks) and make this platter called life less spicy :)
    A nice post straight frm the heart though i dont agree with ur wish regarding T20..
    keep participating :)
