whats in the name ?

Posted in Uncategorized by Apoorv on July 9, 2009

” whats in the name ? ” , said Bard centuries ago .

I say a lot. Especially when you share your name with 7 other people in the class . Today the class was asked to sit in Alphabetical order and to the astonishment of everyone , we realized that there are 8 Abhisheks in class occupying larger part of first row 🙂 .
Now I had unique name all along thru my life , and whenever Apoorv or Appu was called for , I was the only one to answer . Not any more . Apurva , my namesake lives couple of doors next to me. Many times I need to answer the door bell only to find that next door Apurva was the one who was being looked for . Most of my namesake`s not so good deeds seem to be mistaken to be that of mine from time to time 🙂 .
If this is the sort of confusion I am facing with 1 namesake , imagine how bad it would be for 8 Abhisheks .
Bottomline is Be careful when you name your kid and let me him be as unique as possible !!

    Well, it shouldn’t be that unique so as to become odd! (rmr a classmate in school named Mriganayani!) 😆

    Hi Apoorv,

    I am GL applicant for class of 2011.
    I have a few queries regarding GL so I am seeking your help.
    I know you must be busy with your schedule so whenever you get time I request you to send me a blank email so that I can respond with my queries.

    Yeah, man! I’ve been facing problem with my name since my childhood though it’s unique one, either people call me Keerti or they mispell my name; at times i faced some embarassing situations coz of my name. So as u said, need to be damn careful when we name our kids 😉
