What’s in a name!

They say what’s in a name!

Well, it seems there is, and a lot; sometimes, an awful lot.

A name may assume a silly meaning in cross cultural contexts and no one knows it better than this gentleman.

This Viatnamese Australian person has all the reason to get irritated when he says “Nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it.” Facebook has blocked him umpteen times considering the words spelt in his name. Out of frustration, he uploaded his passport scan to prove his name is what he writes.

And now his name: Mr. Phuc Dat Bich.


Mind you! It is pronounced as “Phoo Da Bic”

ज़िन्दगी ही तो है.. जी लेंगे

ज़िन्दगी ही तो है..
जी लेंगे
कभी पानी की तरह,
कभी ज़हर की तरह
कभी गुस्से के दो घूँट
कभी जाम के दो बूँद,
पी लेंगे.

ज़िन्दगी ही तो है..
जी लेंगे

Oh Life, Forgive Me!

Oh Life, Forgive Me!

Oh life!
forgive me;
for all the sadness,
I bestow upon you!

Oh life!
forget me!
for all the memories,
I have ruined for you!

Oh life!
remit me!
for all the sins,
I have committed by you!

Oh life!
relieve me!
for all the inaction,
I have stalled upon you!
