In(dia) Smiles

*Big Grin*

My article is finally up in Sulekha.com's India Smiles Contest page.
So any of you dudes having the time and the bandwidth to go to another site for my kind of balderdash, you know what to do :)

Thank you!

'Kumari' is pure. What does 'ChidamabaraKumari' mean ? Similarly 'Pon' is gold, but what is 'Ponnambalam' ? I think I can guess the second one. 'Ambalam' is temple in mallu (but its not so in tamil). so i'd make a vague guess that 'Ponnambalam' is temple of Gold. Apologies if I blabbered.

“A rose by any other name means an appointment with the shrink” - brilliant.

Reminds me of a friend in school who corrected a on his name and the teacher used the "what's in a name ... rose ..." line. To which my friend had remarked, "Sir, can you even imagine calling rose gobar (dung)?".

@Piggy: After my first intro call with the client, she apparently asked my onsite co-ord help to pronounce my name :)
