2012 So Far!

How is 2012 treating me so far? Compared to years before, 2012 is picking up very slow for me. Things are not shaping the way I have planned. My struggle against alcohol is not helping either. No, I don’t want to quit alcohol! I just want to restrict my drinking to weekends only (a big sorry to all the bars in Delhi). BTW, Delhi nightlife must be the most boring in the world and Delhi Nightclubs, it’s even worse. Am so tired of hanging out in joints with nonsense Bollywood songs. Do you know any pub in Delhi who plays rock, blues or jazz music.

Though my life is at its most boring, Bollywood is buzzing up like a bee hive right after it’s been poked by a stick. Oprah Winfrey's visit to India seems to be the reason for the entire buzz. I sincerely hope Oprah will take more from India than just pictures of her with some kids from the slum. India has so much to offer, celebrities prefer to have their pictures published in various newspapers and magazines only with slum kids. It’s like all they want to show the world is how compassionate they are but are they really?

Blame the above rant to my fight with alcoholism. But my frustration has to come out in one way or the other and I am thankful that it’s getting channeled through this blog post.

Oh Yeah, some pictures from this year:





The Republic Day is on 26 of Jan. The above picture are some kind of a special battalion of Army who travels in Camel. I believe they are from Rajasthan preparing for the Parade which will happen in India Gate.


It really was a cool sight. I wonder if they rode their camels all the way from where they are coming.








A street performer outside my office. I watched the entire show but I had to sneak out just before the end of the show because I forgot my wallet inside my work station.



Two weeks back I went to this Music Store '440 HZ' in Lajpath Nagar Central Market to buy a China Cymbal and i saw this cute puppy napping. Did you noticed that this puppy has only three paws.




My Very own Mini Bar - Vodka, more Vodka, Old Monk Rum and a Bottle of Cheap Indian Wine.







Finally A Warm Good Morning From

  3. I'm rooting for you and know you will succeed. I'm sure you already know that the busier you keep doing things you didn't used to do during the week, the more chance you have for success! Keep fighting!!!!

    I agree with you about celebrities only wanting to show what is going to make them look good. Maybe they could focus on the slums in the states? They could get some similar photo ops.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

  16. Oprah once spent some time in my town. I don;t think she took the time to take pictures with any kids, from the slums or otherwise but then again we were suing her, so I think she spent most of her time in court.
