It Ain't a Lot

I often wonder about how and why my life is unfolding the way it is. These days when I am quite far from my home - both the real one and the adopted one - I have thought quite a lot about what I would want from a life well lived. So here is the list:
  1. Coming home everyday to a fridge full of fruits - Plums, Oranges, Apricots, Pears. The package basically
  2. Coming home to a place that doesn't ring with a 'deathly' silence. (Sincere apologies to Jhumpa Lahiri for any Copyright infringements)
  3. Having access to all English and Hindi music ever made.
  4. Having access to all episodes of all English sitcoms ever made.
  5. Someone to talk to about books I have read and movies I have seen
  6. Some cricket on television every time I switch the boob tube on
  7. Nostalgia
I wonder if this is too much to ask for. What about just the sitcoms though? Do-able, eh?
