5 People I Would Meet in Heaven – Day 10

I noticed someone on the road today, I don’t remember the face of the person or anything in particular about him. All that remained with me was an interesting message, β€œEverybody wants to go to Heaven, But Nobody wants to die”. Ironical, Satirical and so true, I mean death is always a factor that has haunted people time and again.

Though I love my life, no matter how much I crib or rant about it, the bottom line is that I love my life too much. But somehow I have always fancied the death, I am not sure but I always felt there would be positives. If nothing else I might get a chance to meet people who have already died.

So here is a list of 5 people I would like to meet in Heaven-

1- Ram Prasad Bismil- I have always been a fan of the Krantikari group, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Ramprasad Bismil, Ashfaq, Rajguru, Sukhdev. But specifically Ram Prasad Bismil because he would be the person to tell me the stories of the great struggle and also his brilliant poetry.

2- Karna- I have never been more fascinated by any other character as compared to Karna. His principles of friendship, generosity and the will power to stand by what he really believed in; is something which appeals to me to the core.

3- Dhirubhai Ambani- I believe there have not been many people in India who were as visionary as Dhirubhai Ambani. I would love to sit beside him and talk about his vision of making one of the largest PetroChemical companies of the world, or bringing down the cost of a phone call comparable to the cost of a postcard.

4- Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel- I believe that he was one of the greatest practitioners of realpolitik in modern India. His legacy and vision is what today we call as the modern India

5- Munshi Premchand- Just for his super brilliant stories which could keep me engaged for lifetimes to come.

So which five people would you meet in heaven?

    That’s a fairly good list and of course a tempting topic…Well, I’d like to meet the following:

    1. Alexander Alekhine: Undisputed world chess champion from 1927–1935 and 1937–1946. I’d like to learn his strategic attitude towards chess. He’s known for Alekhine defense and Alexander cathard attack.

    2. Andy (If ‘The Shawshank redemption’ is a true story): I’ve learned a lot about patience and hope from this simple movie character. About life, about priorities, about perseverance and about hard work.

    3. Chanakya(kautilya): For his unmatched ideologies of philosophy and politics. His ideas are actually based on truth and honesty, though people might interpret them more inclined towards cunningness.

    4. Hrishikesh Mukherjee: For his brilliance in indian cinema, in contributing towards all time sensible movies, with suited characters.

    5. Last but not the least, My grandfather: I’ve experienced true optimism in his outlook. Very rational in decision making and caring for all of us. I wish to meet him and share all my achievements, failures, learnings etc.
