As news of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death reaches fans on social media, it saw an outpouring of affection from fans for the young actor, one of the few ones who had made the rare transition from from TV to the silver screens successfully.
A list Sushant Singh Rajput had also shared on social media soon started going viral - the list being of his ’50 dreams.’
In September 2019, Rajput had posted handwritten notes of the dreams he wanted to fulfill, 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.
Rajput also posted regular updates on social media whenever he achieved those dreams.
Whether it was learning to fly a plane.
Or training and participating in the Ironman triathlon.
And helping more women train in self-defense.
Or learn archery.
