  • Now it's time to name our child.
    Ankita Kulkarni | 16-Jan-2017
    Now it's time to name our child. Siddharth,Rahul or Rohan. I was named Ankita, an "anguthachaap". My bother Aniket, one withought a house. Or parents were mocked. We were laughed at, for having such inauspicious names. So now it's time to name our child. How do u decide? What to pick withought it being misinterpreted? A God's name. A philosophical meaning. Something from the Vedas? And now it's time  to name our child. A name we can proudly say. Withought mockery,withought contempt. With our heads held high.

    Better be prepared for what you are going to face, Because the world you are going to enter creates a judgement on every step; Because the world you are going to enter frets even on the name you get, They'll pull you down and down and further But remember this always That here I am as your fallback, That you don't need to care about what they say; Just make them fret more and make your way.

  • What's in a name?
    Ankeetaa | 15-Jan-2017
    "What's in a name?" rechoed the mother, "identity" replied the father, "Don't we give our child the identity", asserted the father, "Or do we let her create it on her own," smiled the mother. The mothers are always right, thought the 3 day old daughter.   Ankeetaa
