I *heart* Bombay (and well..Boston)

I'm urban..in the way other people are mountain-people or tunafish junkies. I love city life...something about dreary concrete blocks and grumpy people totally gets my juices flowing. Ergo, this will be a blog about me, my two favourite cities (Bombay and Boston), my addiction to Vietnamese coffee and my views on Gregorian chant and it's efficacy in curing some types of tympannic membrane rupture. Enjoy!

I resolve in 2008..

1. To save up and buy myself a big screen TV. I'm sick of coming home to a silent house. Creepy sometimes.

2. To take a long holiday and not care about accruing vacation time and requests for permission to go and filling up 500 forms before I get a day off.

3. To cook my special spinach lasagna at home without ricotta, fontana or good cream cheese. It's going to be a challenge, but if I master it, I know I'll be super-fat by the end of the year.

4. To gain 10 kgs. And not only on the stomach (I don't need to make a resolution for that unhappy occurence to happen!)

5. To visit Kerala and stay at one of those Ayurvedic spas. I've been pushing off this trip forever and I think I sure could use an oil massage about now.

6. To get a tattoo. Ganesha on my hip. It was supposed to be on my arm, but since I'm resigned to the fact I will never ever have biceps, and will be hippy forever, it's hip-time.

7. To have a well-stocked bar. Needless to say a martini shaker needs to be bought. As do several bottles of Grey Goose.

8. To write more often. Currently it's a letter a month. I plan to move it to a weekly schedule.

9. To shop for fewer clothes and books and for more furniture.

10. To find a boyfriend. Been single too long and the world is passing me by. I don't care about the "You'll find one when you're not looking" cause then they all think you're not interested!

    about point 10- tavayafo kay taqdeer mein shoarrr nahi hotay.. tavayafo ki toa koee taqdeer hee nahi hoti..

    hum jaise kay leeyeh koee nahi bana.. yeh kabul kar aur khush ray..

    harr raat shuhaag raat samje le.. aur harr mard ko apna pati... yahi humari taqdeer hai behana...

    Hey... Good job on NDTV. Been reading your blog for over a year now. Vaguely remember running into you at MICA a year or so ago. Anyway, keep up the good work. And yeah, Happy New Year and all the best with the resolutions! :)

    Vik,

    I saw you on NDTV! I am in Hubli and was thinking of you and there you were on TV wearing your favorite shirt (the one you wore to my engagement). I wish you would get in touch. Email me and I will call you. Otherwise, I will not bother you anymore.

    well, to sit back and crib like all ageing fags do, and on national television , ain't such an achievement after all. Also, the school-boy joy of saying 'yea am gay!' on air was ridiculous for a 30 year OLD man.........well, guess somethings just don't mature...as they age......
    but, boy oh boy....you should soon find a partner, young/old, fat/thin/, tall/short, fair/dark.......cos if u wont find now, start preparing for an old age of loneliness.....and trust me......fags are entertaining, but not more then once......am a fag and i know what that means......so...now that u got your two mins of fame, market it and get someone home. someone who'll love u and more imp......someone who you will love...leaving aside your overt fag fantasies. the world is filled with humans.......of all kinds.....and lemme wish you dont end up single by the end of this year.

    much love and kisses
    muah!

    oldladywithabroom,sahi bola. aur kya meela yeh karke? bachpana gaya nahi kya? arey behana, kuch karna hee hai toa sare gays aur lesbians ka ek mass movement karo jis sey kuch toa change ho. waqt lagega lekin usi sey kuch change hoga.

     
  • At 3:29 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    mass movement? wat does that mean? i dont .....sorry i REFUSE to understand this NGO talk......if u just need a partner for life so that u wont go around looking everytime u need a bugger up there, u dont need no mass movement for that. Lagta hain aap kaafi lgbt groups etc jaatey hongey. waisey...am happy with my regular fucks.....and dont need anyone elses help.....the least a mass movement of fags...LOL...

    waisey, why is poor vicks wall becoming a space for all this talk?

    vickster.......sorry to invade here...

    Hey vikram,

    Watched you on the NDTV discussion, that is when I googled into your blog. Good work, please blog more often.

    One request- could you please change your pic on this profile, you looked cute, not exaggerating when I say hot too! But this pic here does not reveal the real Vikram, will you listen to me?

    Vikster:
    A fan in New York is missing your words of wisdom... has there been "fallout" from your TV appearence? Would love to know the details...

    Blogging is "wearing your heart on your sleeve." And it can be emotionally devastating. Some of the comments here have been nothing short of rude and crude.

    Hope that you are well, emotionally, spiritually, and personally.

    Your readers (and fans) love you dearly, Vick, even though we are miles apart. Please write...

    Love,
    P
