i'm feeling lukkha

From an entry on my Orkut scrapbook:

abey saale … 14th feb ko budday aur abhi bhi lukkha hai? yeh kaise huie?

Which, translated means,

Dude, your birthday is on the 14th of February and you’re still lukkha?

It’s hard to translate the word “lukkha”. In Marathi, it apparently means “deprived”. The best description I’ve found on the net so far is by “amunix”:

Lukkhaa (n): A bachelor, who follows all the principles of bachelorhood very rigorously (eg., messy room, getting up very late, night-outs, no container to store water in, except for the tap, no bath for a couple of days etc..)

Being an almost OCD type person, the messy room and no-bath-for-weeks is out of question. But you should get the general idea. What to say boss, c’est la vie.
