·3-min read

A year after young Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide, his fans still keep his legacy alive. Sushant Singh Rajput wished to reach for the stars. On the big screen, Singh’s career was studded with memorable performances in Kai Po Che!, Shuddh Desi Romance, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Chhichhore. Off-screen, Singh “time-travelled” through his Meade telescope which he used to visit the Saturn rings, Jupiter moons, and on the days of clear skies, even the Andromeda Galaxy. Other than his interest in multiple things, Singh also had a list of 50 things he wished to do. Following his demise, the list of his ’50 dream,’ had gone viral.

In September 2019, Rajput had posted handwritten notes of the dreams he wanted to fulfil, and then posted updates on the ones he managed to achieve.

“Learn to fly a plane. Learn morse code,” were some of the dreams on his list. While some of the the dreams were personal, like learning to be an archer, some of them were also things that expended to helping more people. He wanted to teach more women self-defense techniques, work for free education and teach dance to kids and help them prepare for defense force. Most of Rajput’s goals were humble: He wanted to learn how to farm. He wanted to learn the guitar chords of 50 of his favorite songs. Some of the goals, he never got to fulfill.
