I was just reading an interview online, that someone did with Vikram Seth after the release of An Equal Music. And read this: 

Are you as passionate about music as Michael is?

I don't really know. I am completely passionate about music. I prefer it to words if I were forced to choose, but I'm not a practicing musician so I don't see how I can reach that level.

Now I like him even more. I think it's time I read more of his books. No point falling for an author when you've read only one book, even if you've read it three times. I think I should read The Golden Gate next. I need to paint quicker, Zonk, and get my next check. So much depends on it. My violin and my next book to read.  Violin it seems. While the only instrument I can somewhat play dies slowly from neglect. I hope you're happy, Mr.Seth. You're eating away into my meager earnings.
Ps: Today was a wasted day. Fuck you Universe.

I paint and make music and blog like a maniac. These days I try to run. But I have chicken legs and lungs the size of two-rupee balloons. I fail. I like pajamas and striped socks and books that read like song and songs that sound like poetry and strangers who read this page. And Maggi when I'm sick or cold or sad or celebrating. They'll find noodles in my veins if ever they cut me open. And potatoes. And maybe a tiny bit of whiskey. I'll be an Unidentified Living Object and they'll put my insides on display. It will be crazy. It will be awesome. It will.
