Vijay Agarwal lands on People’s ‘Most Beautiful’

People magazine names Vijay Agarwal, an aspiring doctor and founder of a non-profit for underprivileged kids, to it’s annual “Most Beautiful” list (thanks, Karthik R.):

“Beauties on your block,” the magazine headline shouts. “Everyday people whose stunning looks match their big hearts.” “Page 161,” Agarwal says. Agarwal, a sometime model from San Jose, doesn’t mind that his chiseled good looks are what are giving him his 15 minutes of fame. A good friend nominated him for the splash in People. Now he fends off requests for autographs. And remains tight-lipped about whether he is single. [San Jose Mercury News]

Oh sure, he may be handsome, smart and altruistic. But the boy’s so poor, he can’t even afford a shirt and belt.

  1. Abhi, I’m sure your mom is right and you were adorable. But unless you were hanging out at my all-girls high school, I probably never saw you.

  2. Where were the cute guys in San Jose… … unless you were hanging out at my all-girls high school, I probably never saw you.

    Answered your own question? ;)

  3. I have to say this is a vast improvement from the fine desi men(i.e Johnny Lever and Amal Dora) you’ve been treating us to here on SM

  4. But we’ve also treated you to Upen Patel, Vikas the god-body, Ajai Raj and Amitabh. They’re all on the home page right now.

  5. “But we’ve also treated you to Upen Patel, Vikas the god-body, Ajai Raj and Amitabh.”

    True indeed!! But I must admit nothing makes my heart flutter like a man who starts his own non-profit for underprivileged kids. What can I say it must be the hopeless romantic in me.

  6. DesiDancer, blush

    That was another one of my awkward phases. I took blogging WAY to seriously. Even my mom didn’t think I was good-looking then. :)
