Summer Calling

28 Feb

So I have to complete a technical training this summer. In the winters, when I was at home, I planned to get a nice long one in Bangalore. Then the semester started, I made some 2-3 friends online, based in Delhi. No romantic angles or possibilites, but just normal, gay friends to hang out and be myself with.

So should it be Bangalore or Delhi? The school-friend (say Pradeep) who discovered me (refer previous post) recommended the party scene in Delhi and Bombay, and condemned Bangalore. Then again, Bangalore is the gay capital of India.
There’s lesser freedom in Delhi, because I’d be at home. There’s lesser freedom in Bangalore because I’d be living with the sister, and she’d perpetually be around!

Then again, I’d meet up with the several recently acquired gay friends in Delhi, and I’d coax Pradeep into familiarising me with the party circuit.
Alternatively, I’d venture out alone in B’lore, in a city where rules are fewer, and no one knows me, and find the scene myself.

Today, the results to my application for an international summer internship came in. I kept my expectations as low as I could, bearing in mind what a disappointment last year was.
I made one 🙂
So I just might end up spending the summer in a tropical country south of America, in the south hemisphere. Known for sunny beaches, hot HOT men and so on and so forth!

Fingers crossed 😀

    Why don’t you explore a new city? That might be fun? Try Bombay. 🙂

    Or your exotic south american country. It should be fun. 🙂

    (a) You lucky dog you ….

    (b) Again … Where do you find people who know about Delhi’s gay scene? Is it like one of those deals where they find you or something? Just like the skulls & bones?

    Yep, the exotic South American country is top priority 🙂

    Are you saying that there ISN’T a gay scene in Delhi? Because a certain networking website lists pretty much every party that happens in the National Capital Region… even I know that!

    Wow.. great to know about your summer internship. Incidentally, I am keeping my fingers crossed too for my MBA application to be accepted in European Schools. Sailing on the same boat!
