Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes
(Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

We used these names as good natured galis when I was more of a kid than I am now,Lokesh,Nandan,Chhagan,etc.one name I somehow did not like to say, "Aru". Seems incomplete and unfulfilled somehow :)
why does minty auchterlonie link to an isabel dalhousie mystery ???
prerona: you are well advised to refer to it as "the one with H". (artistic shudder)pras: chaggan! good one! try as i might*, i always associated it with a crude biological reference (accompanied by a clap with the hands being pushed apart) everytime chaggan bhujbal was mentioned, i would giggle. and point.*obviously wasn't really tryingminty auchterlonie is an unpleasant character in the sunday philosophy club.
I've tried explaining this a lot to my parents, but they disagreed, and I was stuck with it. Sigh...
senthil, i've been mulling over an appropriate response to your comment all weekend.fustoffal, i didnt know i had a reader called senthil. welcome, welcome. nice pictures on your blog.second, i can't disparage a name once i know someone with it, so senthil is now off my list. third, i really should stop running about disparaging names, shunt i? i'm surprised at the mildness of your reaction. i would've thrown a few hissy fits and sulked (petulantly) at you for days, if i'd been at the receiving end.and finally, it's pretty much prejudice arising out of unfamiliarity. having grown up hearing cries of "ay pakkya" and "khalli pilli kayku bom marta hai*?", the sibilant sounds of senthil fell strangely upon my untutored ear. i am suitably chastened and am changing my screen name to Orcaella brevirostris. forthwith!*no, that's not a name. was just providing local colour.
this gives a new path to O B wan a canoe bee!
