Alternate professions ?!?!

Priya has raised the question,

If.... if incase you HAVE TO switch fields once in every 5 years between your 30 to 50 yrs of age assuming that your monetary needs are taken care in upper-middle class standards, what (4-5 professions) you would wish to do (and say few words about it) ?

I did not have much of thinking to do.

30-35 – Learn samskritam, PaTanam, Vaachikam. Attain ‘Pandityam’. Don’t know if 5 years would be sufficient for that.
35-40 – Read and interpret Vedas, Upanishads, their Bashyams, Kalidasa’s works et al
40-45 - Take up the task of spreading all those learnt in the past ten years.
45-50 – Set up permanent infrastructure to continually do what I was doing in the last five years.
50 + - Go back as a student and learn more of what is learnt from 30-40

Though the above do not really qualify as professions, tell me, why somebody would need to be a professional when monetary needs are take care ;)

Also, along with the above prime interest, the following would be my parallel interests through the years
30-35 – Visit the temples of tamilnadu and make a comprehensive volume of bhakti compositions associated with them.
35-45 – Establish Anglo-Vedic schools [in the true sense of it], and create English-educated society with Vedic fundamentals.
45 + - Learn the nuances of theoretical carnatic music and appreciate the greatness of the ragas and krithis.

Now getting back to work, to continue the shitty consulting documents i am busy preparing since the past fortnight. :(

I tag all those who dare to dream, to get themselves tagged. ;)
