I dont know what happens when you get sudden unexpected amounts of money.

What would happen with me if I won the lottery.

1) Pay off all credit cards (there are very small amounts on each)
2) Put aside a good chunk for retirement and avail of all tax benefits
3) Start a new venture (may not be in software alone, but something related too) with a modest investment
4) Hire a wealth management firm and invest in stocks, mutual funds, etc. and play it safe with conservative growth targets.
5) Hire a full time person to work on things which I always wanted to do besides echarcha. If it works out, then expand the team and continue.
6) Enjoy!!

first five are okay with me too...

problem is sixth one.

Enjoy... it doesnt have the boundaries as we dont have millions from the lottrey yet so our imaginations will run high and wild later and soon we ll be far away from reality and when we hit the rock bottom it ll be too late just as lindsay lohan ....

No my ideas for 'Enjoy' are very very well defined.

What enjoy means to me.
1) Buy first class air ticket to travel to Europe and do the usual tourist thing - go to popular places, live in comfortable hotels. I am not the adventurous types.

2) Travel a few places within USA and enjoy the stay there.

For these two activities I give myself a couple of months. I am sure I will be bored pretty soon as I dont like travel too much.

3) Buy first class ticket to go back to India. Pay some money to a movie producer and/or director just to be on the sets as a silent observer for a film shoot.

I would like to be on the sets of a Ram Gopal Verma, Prakash Jha, Vishal Bharadwaj, Abbas Mustan, Priyadarshan, David Dhawaan film shoot.

Spend about a month of this. With the money I have, maybe I can be part producer, but be completely silent and a fly on the wall with no interaction with anyone. Just watch.


4) Buy myself a nice mercedes top of the line car. Yes I know there are Lamborghinis and Ferraris and McLarens and Bentleys, but I am a simple Mercedes man. You see, my middle class mentality will not go. I will worry about things like maintenance and car insurance.

apart from this film watching and producing thing .. My "enjoy" starts from where yours ends.

I have done it all ... europe, india, US, australia, canada in 1st class and change the benz with BMW.

so it means I m more prone to end up like lohan ma'am.

Nahi re ... I have not been so fortunate as to travel the world as many have. Saala paisa aisi cheez hain na.. Always in shortage. Thak gaya hoon taking care of things back home and all that ... never a dime for myself ... fuck ..

Anyway ... ha .. well fuck it ... I only dream of these things ... happy with toyota camry though.
