So here I’m losing my celibacy and a father in the making. Amongst all those anxieties of routine check-ups, heamoglobin count, sugar level, weight increase, back aches is the most important tension finding the right name for the tiny-tot!
Desicritics is my favourite desi site. I just love it and here is an interesting stuff I saw very much relating to my life now- An eulogy to Suresh.
Suresh, Ramesh, Harish, Rajesh, Mahesh the hep of the late 70’s 🙂 Four of my close friends are in the list and I also know of a Rajesh of my generation. So now the esh-es are out…….
I truly agree with the author (eulogy of Suresh); people now are going crazy on finding a unique name, an exotic one, an unheard one and perhaps unthinkable combinations. And Maneka Gandhi has tapped this rage by releasing a book “Indian Baby Names”. Recent names I had heard from the baby boomers around me are quite interesting – Iravan, Khushagra, Ipsitha, Soham, Sravana…..and all those I am hearing for the first time.
So what will we be our unique selection 🙂
There is a saying in Malayalam “Kalla Pettu ennu ariyum mumbey Kayar edukalley”; “Even before the Ox is born don’t run around in search of a rope”;
