Kickasso tagged me after a push from my side, as I am absolutely bored on a Sunday morning, having nothing planned for the day other than washing my clothes and ironing the previously washed clothes. IOW, sheer boredom awaits me at the beginning/end of a week! Consequently, I decided to fill in the tag and spend some time. Btw, it’s very very easy to hack into a wireless network and gain access to Internet. That’s how I am online rite now. I don’t think they can charge me or anything anyway, so who bothers ;-)!1. Were you named after anyone?Yes and No!Yup = Grandpa’s name [concatenate with space] Dad’s name [It’s the tradition in my family to name the first born son after the paternal grandfather and the 2nd son after the maternal grandfather and same goes for the female gender as well. Anyhoo, dunno the complexity after that. :-D]Ravi = Renganatha Iyer + Vishwanatha Iyer [1st 2 letters of the paternal and maternal grandfather]Pangu = Nopes, Gautam christened me ;-)Guru Panguji = My own creation ;-)!2.
