My Wishlist ! हज़ारों ख्वाहिशें ऐसीं


I think when you feel blanked out in solitude at midnight … one of the easiest an brightest thing to do is to draw up a’ to do list’  …. not to confuse it with the list you make everyday and struggle with it till you call it a day … it is a wish list … again … making a wish list is very easy … since wishful thinking doesn’t require any cash or kind …  Thoda deemag lagana padega thats it!
