Check out Some Lesser Known Facts about the Actor Does Vikram Seth drink alcohol?: Yes
His father, Prem Nath Seth was an executive at the Bata Shoes and was nicknamed as ‘Mr Shoes’ in Delhi. His mother, Leila Seth was the first female judge of the Delhi High Court, and also the first woman Chief Justice of a state High Court in India.
At the age of six, Vikram was sent to the boarding school, which stemmed his introverted character. It affected his area of interests too, as he was more conservative and always read books, instead of involving himself in group activities like sports. Vikram recollects,
Incapable of looking people in the eye. The school was too far to visit, it took two days to get there from home, and I only saw my family for four months a year. When I was at home my father, was distant, a figure who came home tired and preoccupied. I had a terrible feeling of loneliness and isolation during my six years here. Sometimes at lights out, I wished I would never wake up. I was teased and bullied by my classmates and my seniors because of my interest in studies and reading, because of my lack of interest in games, because of my unwillingness to join gangs and groups.”

When he was studying in the Doon School, he used to edit the journal of the school “The Doon School Weekly.” From the Doon School, he won a scholarship to Tonbridge School, England.

To attend Tonbridge, he went to live with his great uncle, Shanti Behari Seth, a dentist by profession in England.

At Tonbridge, he again won a scholarship to study at Oxford University. While studying at Oxford, he indulged himself in writing poetry. He condemns the poem that he had written at that time, as he considers them as ‘incredibly unskillful.’ However, he continued to write and kept the poems to himself.

He is an avid reader of poetry. While studying at Stanford, Vikram ran into a translated work of the Chinese poet, Wang Wei. Influenced by Wei’s work, he decided to learn Mandarin, so that he could read the original works of the poet. Within a year, Vikram excelled in Mandarin to an extent that he was writing poems in the language. Simultaneously, he also started to write poems in English seriously.

Apart from Mandarin, he is fluent in German, French, Urdu, Bengali, and Welsh.
Knowing that he needed guidance, he approached the teachers from the English Department of Stanford University. There, Vikram discovered a mentor in the American poet, Timothy Steele, who was serving as the Jones Lecturer in poetry at Stanford at that time. Timothy also used to give him an informal biweekly tutorial and he also inculcated the urge of creativity in Vikram. Timothy recollects,
The first thing that impresses you about Vikram is his immense and lively intelligence. It was always clear he was going to do something remarkable, but it wasn’t clear, when I first knew him, what direction his talent would take. Three or four muses were tugging jealously at him.” Sponsored
Vikram took a year leave from his Economics studies for Wallace Stegner Fellowship (1977-78) in creative writing.

One of the contemporaries of Vikram was Dana Gioia, an American Poet and writer of ‘Can Poetry Matter?.’ Together with Dana and Steele, Vikram’s natural inclination to write poetry begin to blossom, and his first collection of poem ‘Mappings’ came out in 1980; after he had rejoined the Economics Department at Stanford.

‘Mappings’ uses the sound pattern of rhyme and meter, which became quite unfashionable at that time. This resulted in publishers refusing to publish his book. All of this led Vikram to become a publisher himself, and he started to force his family and friends to sell the copies of his books. The book was later published by Writers Workshop in Calcutta.

Vikram had already left for China’s Nanjing University, for his doctoral research in the demography of Chinese villages, before his book ‘Mappings’ was published in 1980. In China, rather than focusing on research, Vikram was busy in reading poetry. This ultimately led Vikram to translate the works of the Chinese poets – Wang Wei, Du Fu, and Li Bai in his book “Three Chinese Poets,” published in 1992. Three Chinese Poets

At the end of his stay in China, a sight-seeing trip to China’s north-west province was organised. During the trip, Vikram managed to charm a policeman by singing “Awara Hoon,” which was a song from the film “Awara” (1951), a popular movie in China at that time. The next day, his rendition of the song was a hot topic in the police station, and he was given a rare permit to travel to Lhasa, the Tibetan capital in China’s autonomous land. When he reached Tibet, he decided to hitchhike his way back to India through Tibet. He wrote the account of this journey, in his book ‘From Heaven Lake: Travels Through Sinkiang and Tibet’ (1983), which was published by London publishers – Chatto and Windus. 'From Heaven Lake Travels through Sinkiang and Tibet' (1983)

Back at Stanford, in midst of analyzing his research, he was struck on the translation of Alexander Pushkin’s “Eugene Onegin” by Charles Johnston. His heavy obsession with the book led him to write his first novel “The Golden Gate” (1986), which was published by Random House.

His children’s book, Beastly Tales from Here and There (1992) consists of ten stories, which are made into poetry. Vikram decided to abandon his PhD in Economics, which he was pursuing from Stanford University. He returned to India in 1987 and began working on his novel “A Suitable Boy” (1993). Vikram Seth Posing with his Book - A Suitable Boy
A sequel of “A Suitable Boy” – “A Suitable Girl” by him was announced in 2009 and is yet to be published. As he thought that he didn’t know much about India.
His second non-fiction work ‘Two Lives’ (2005), is a memoir of the marriage of his great uncle, Shanti Behari Seth, and his German Jewish great aunt, Hennerle Gerda Caro.
He was commissioned by the English National Opera to write a libretto based on the Greek legend ‘Arion and the Dolphin.’ The opera was performed for the first time in June 1994. Arion and the Dolphin
Since his childhood, he loved music and learned to play the piano and cello. He also learned to sing Khayal under the mentorship of later Pandit Amarnath for 10 years. However, his love for the western classical music began to sprout, when one of his friends at Oxford, took him to hear Bach. It was his passion for music that led him to write ‘An Equal Music’ (1999).
Vikram sat at one end of a long table and began to grill us. It was quite incredible. He wanted to know our literary tastes, our views on poetry, our views on plays, which novelists we liked.”
Vikram has also worked as an editor at the Stanford University Press from 1985 to 1986.

He belongs to a Hindu Family. However, when it comes to his religious and political ideas, Vikram says,

He was offered a job at the World Bank. His parents suggested him to work for five years at the bank so that he could get a pension, and continue to write poetry and novels. Vikram told that his creativity would be finished and instead, asked his parents to support him until his next book would be released.

Bollywood Poet & Novelist,. Vikram Seth After “The Golden Gate” (1986) was published, Vikram decided to have a British agent. He drew a shortlist of a few agencies and interviewed them one by one.
