Anatomy of a name !!!!


Someone(naming will be a gr8 disservice to him!! waise the language we use nowadays is newayz a gr8 disservice to him, but that sometime later!!!) once famously said : "What's in a name?" . uff but ask me!!
first of all my birth, I was destined to be born in the same era, when the "Love Story" was still so young and Bunty the Hero was still so adorable!! he only helped in people "bajaoing my ghanti"!! yes! the name that became my identity before i got another(my official identity) superb name :'( . and see the fallacy, yash raj films after a good 23 years decided to make another movie with the hero again donning(or rather conning) the same name and released it on the same ill fated day(my bday i mean), and the fun with my first(nick) name continues......

then my parents going against the stars and family pundits recommendations, decided to award me a name that guaranteed me the company of atleast one other person and loads of confusion, wherever i went. but why the confusion?? hmmm, ever imagined calling somebody and saying "hello aunty, how r u? saurabh this side, can I talk to saurabh please!!" and the reply would invariably be wwwwwwhat?????????? or responding to a call just to realise it was not meant for you!! and yes not to forget the various complements(!!!!) i keep on getting for my (in)famous namesake! dada match ke liye practice kar li !!! and of late, dada chamach ki jagah bat zyada use kiya hota toh chapal se aisi pitai nahin hoti!!!

but the real comedy comes in next, yes see my tragedy :( , my name is a comedy. i am talking about the name with which most of my friends call me, and many even felt that it is my real name!!. tutu as i always understood it, but it does have its variations too -- like tuttu or tuutu or 22!! see he is one only, its just that people like to call him by different names ;)

i break(tuttu) quite often!! and i m never alone, becoz i m always 2-2!! and yes i shud always be challaned coz 22 people are not allowed on a single vehicle!! and the list goes on..................

waise i share my name with the a famous archbishop and also with a russian skirt and one flop bollywood producer, all reasons good enough for the continuity of comedy!!

chalo i guess enough of my names, but i guess i will not be able to agree to the quote i begun with!! but before i say tata ;) here's another final( and most fabulous too) example of what i meant , a poetry for my name :

tutu ke tutne se tut-ti hain tutiyan...
tutiyon ke tutne se tut-ta hai tutu....

wah-wah.........
