I am back

It’s been more than two weeks since I last posted something, despite resolving to write more often. Honestly, it’s got nothing to do with my lethargy. In fact, I have been constantly on my toes sorting out one thing after the other. Hardly got time to relax. Don’t remember being so active & pushy at least in the last 2 – 3 years J

The next few weeks promise to be even more hectic; however, I am hoping that the positive energy surrounding them would compensate for the slight physical stress J

I wish to write about so many things happening in my life right now and I really need to. Writing serves as an outlet to vent my pent up energy and helps me maintain some bit of sanity in my lifeJ.

The last 2 weeks of random thoughts going on in my mind will result in back to back posts now…hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I will enjoy writing them.

P.S. – Although, I have cribbed about people not following / reading my blog earlier, honestly speaking it doesn’t bother me as much as I make it sound. Although appreciation or recognition serves as a good motivator, I write because I enjoy doing so and will continue writing until I enjoy it J

Aaj Main Khush Hoon

Hmmm….so far I have nagged 4 people into following my blog. However, some of my friends have stopped taking my calls / responding to my messages for the fear of facing my wrath at not doing enough to make this blog more popular. Something tells me I need to work upon my PR skills.

Anyway, I am quite happy today and hence itching to write. It would be unfair & selfish on my part to burden you with my miseries while keeping the good stuff for myself.

I managed to wake up a full 30 minutes late, yet reach office well before time. Somehow, all the 3 modes of transport that I take to work were just waiting for me to arrive. Than, got my long pending confirmation letter, seriously, it was long overdue and I was a little scared about being shown the door (considering that my organization does that to people & I and my boss don’t exactly see eye to eye on a lot of things). Received some appreciation for my work at office, which again is hard to come by here. Finally, managed to get started on the investment bit. It’s the year end and honestly putting things in place is such a hassle in India. Every year you end up filling more and more forms. I mean, doesn’t the government get fed up with so much documentation? They can surely make better use of our tax money than pay those lazy - fat ass - good for nothing - babus working in the IT department.

Anyway, coming back to the point, yeah, so all in all quite a happy day for me. Guess the forces of universe are making up for screwing my 1st working day this year, when I ended up slogging for a good 12 hours for something that was totally not required.

Oh, by the way, I need to tell you that I created a profile on Planetromeo about 2 months back. Don’t get any naughty ideas. It is a desperate attempt to expand my fast shrinking gay social circle, and oh boy, I  got the shock of my life  & some really good laughs too. There is seriously so much to write about it, that it will take at least a couple of posts to summarize everything. Yea, but my next post will contain some really hilarious & dimwitted tag lines that people have (dared) put on their profile.

Chalo than, I hope your day was as good as mine. See ya soon.

Happy New Year

Hi again.

First & foremost, here’s wishing all of you a very happy new year, one that is filled with new hopes, new joys & new beginnings.

Hope you guys had a blast on New Year’s Eve and more importantly brought in the New Year the way you wanted to.

It's amazing how we look forward to the start of a new year with a hope that it will solve our problems & simplify our lives :)

Now, because I happen to be a person who does not depend but rather relies on miracles & prayers, I am more than glad that 2010 is over. Don’t snigger you bitches. This is courtesy the overdose of 70’s & 80’s bollywood which taught us that dua does wonders when dawa fails & wailing endlessly in a Temple / Church / Gurudwara / Dargah on a stormy night can stop a nuclear confrontation between India & Pakistan. Compared to these my problems are teeny weenie.

Actually, 2010 was a mixed bag. I achieved a few milestones that I had set for myself, erred on a few crucial decisions at important junctures, realized how much importance someone has assumed in my life and grew a lot closer to some people who I did not view very favorably earlier. In a nutshell, I feel I grew up a lot as a person, maybe more than the last 30 years of my life.

Okay, sentiments aside, December proved to be a great month with parents, sister & some of my nieces visiting me for a good 2 weeks in the 1st half. The year ended well with my guy getting an extended break from work, and for the first time in 3 years we were able to bring in the New Year together. After a lot of deliberation, we decided to be by ourselves, so we (actually he) cooked, cut a cake and yes all in all it was a memorable evening.

The month culminated with me meeting an ex colleague cum close friend who recently completed his MBA from one of the most reputed institutes in the world. Met him after more than a year and a half, so it was fun catching upon old times.

Now let’s see what 2011 has in store for me. I usually don’t make New Year resolutions because they go down the drain within a month. However, hoping that I will be able to achieve a few things I have in mind and also use my precious little spare time  more productively rather than spending endless hours on the internet.

I guess that’s it for now than.

Oh by the way, I already have three followers within a week of starting, which I guess is very encouraging.  Hope it gets better. Also, time to take some holidaying, secretive, non responsive people (read three different bitches) to task for being so luke warm…humph…

The First Post :)

Hi there and thanks for dropping by.

This is literally the 4th time in the last 1 hour that I am trying to write something intelligent and witty but dammit words are hard to come by.

Actually, its been about two months since I created this profile but like everything else in my life, in my quest to attain perfection before I start - I almost lost interest. So, before my interest in blogging dipped to zero, here I am :)

I did (kinda) blog earlier, but more on that later.

About me, well I am a 30 something gay man from Bombay, with a partner, a boring job with an even more boring organisation. I have a habit of perpetually whining, be it about my job, boss, parents, friends, weight, inflation, government, living conditions, commute, potholes, bad books, bad movies....the list is endless. So if you decide to read / follow my blog, don't say I didn't warn you :)

I intend to keep this blog anonymous at the moment. Of course, close friends who are reading this know who I am. You can also get to know me if I you find me interesting.

This blog is going to be largely about me, my experiences, basically anything that has made me laugh, cry or had an impact on me in my day to day life. I am really not going to write anything about my relationship as I believe it is something very personal. I am also not going to go on and on only about my sexuality or other issues concerning it. There is a lot more to me than that. Of course, since it is an integral part of me and brings some really hilarious people & situations in my life, I will keep updating you time to time. This blog is also aimed at bringing out the (super) bitch in me as mostly I  maintain an uptight, serious persona (yawnzz)..

Although, I love writing, for the last couple of years, lethargy has overtaken everything else in my life. It has honestly taken a lot to create this profile and get writing once again, mostly, because I have been reading a lot of blogs - both good and bad and realised, I can do a lot better. Secondly, blogging is a lot easier than writing serious stuff (something I did earlier). Also, it helps me unwind and I am kinda hoping that now that I have started something I was putting off for long, other things like losing weight will hopefully follow :)

I believe there are two types of writers, the ones who prefer to keep it plain and simple and write in a manner that makes you feel like you are talking to them. The others, who use overly jazzy words and flowery language. I prefer the former, the latter really puts me off, but anyway, to each his own.

I know, this post has not been the most interesting piece of writing. I know I can do a lot better and people who have read my stuff before will vouch for that :). I hope to shake off the rust and get my groove back. Hope you will be back soon - for starters give the guy a pat on his back so he stays motivated :)
