Naam Kiya Hai Piyar Ka Maara

Children (when they are encouraged to) will show you that it is possible to live a life where you tick more than one box every day and still have a sense of self.

Most days, depending on how you ask him the Toddler will say his name is

Gul-chair (Gulsher)
,

Arhaan Tikeela (where tikila is the little one, try thinking of the rat tail some might grow)
,

A-haan (well because it just sounds cooler to him)

However, most days in answer to

Whats your name

He might just say

Sheila Sheila

  1. Truth be told these days i might blurt out 'sheila' if you asked me my name....complete with the hip twist. Its catchy. Where is the nasal, high pitched rhythm in surabhi...surabhi ...ki jawani, budhapa, whatever...
