October 26, 2016: Do you ever feel that your life is heading nowhere and it has no goal? Many people create a bucket list that is full of crazy, adventurous activities.  The main reason behind creating a bucket list is to live every moment to the fullest. Here are the few things that you can try:

  1. Defy gravity

Go for skydiving. It is the perfect combination of excitement and serenity. Once the parachute opens, the heart rate will get steady, just take a moment and enjoy the view.

  1. Northern lights:

Of all the natural phenomenon in the world, nothing compares to the beauty of the northern lights. The lights are like dancing colors of the sky. The Algonquian Indians of Canada believed that the fire was built by the Great Spirit.

  1. Verify for yourself that the Earth is round:

Set sail in one direction and do not stop until you’re home. Journey around the North of the Arctic Circle around the summer would be perfect. You can spend a night watching the sun circle above the horizon.

  1. Climb your own Mount Everest:

It is believed that Gods stay in the mountains. When Petrarch climbed 6000 feet and saw the view from the top of Mount Ventaux, he said, “What I had read of Athos and Olympus seemed less incredible as I myself witnessed the same things”. The reward would be unbelievable: to stand on the highest bit and get the perfect view. Maybe you would finally understand why the mountains are calling.

  1. Go on a road trip:

It is said that the journey is a destination; a road trip is an adventure. Do not make a plan. Avoid the question,” Are we there yet?” It’s all about the fun, the talk and the landscape. Enjoy the moment.

  1. Conquer a fear:

Lucas Jonkman said,” Fight your fears and you’ll be in a battle forever. Face your fear and you’ll be forever”. Face your fear that has been putting limits on your full potential and let your breakthrough inspire other people.

  1. Donate something

Donate something that will bring change in someone’s life. Be it your hair, your blood or any other thing. Helping others will give you a feeling of satisfaction which is unbeatable.

  1. Bury a time capsule

Bury few of your favorite things in places where a stranger can dig it up. Leave a note with it telling him how these much things matter to you.

  1. Take someone you love to a romantic place

The place should not be a local 5 star restaurant. Take your special someone to Paris or Santorini. Any romantic place would work where you can be close to nature and to your special someone.

  1. African Safari

African Safari is an affordable travel choice. Watching wild animals roaming freely and falling asleep would be a treat for the eyes. There would be many magnificent natural sights. You can meet people from all around the world in Africa.

Restaurateurs Prodyut and Sumana Mukherjee have not only brought Indian cuisine to the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 here but also plan to dish out free dinner to countrymen if Argentina wins the trophy on July 15.

Based in Moscow for the last 27 years, Prodyut and Sumana run two Indian eateries, “Talk Of The Town” and “Fusion Plaza”.

Both restaurants serve popular Indian dishes like butter chicken, kebabs and a varied vegetarian spread.

During the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018, there will be 25 per cent discount for those who will possess a Fan ID (required to watch World Cup games).

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

The Mukherjees, hailing from Kolkata, are die-hard fans of Argentina. Despite Albiceleste drawing 1-1 with Iceland in their group opener with Lionel Messi failing to sparkle, they believe Jorge Sampaoli’s team can go the distance.

“I am an Argentina fan. I have booked tickets for a quarterfinal match, a semifinal and of course the final. If Argentina goes on to lift

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
