What's in Name? Let's find out!


Print
When I was a child, I found my name quite Okay kinds. It was not that common then. Seriously! As I grew up, I realized.. it has become a bit common. And people never wrote it correctly.. They sometimes wrote, 'Gitika', or 'Giteeka', or 'Geeteeka'..!! O boy, it used to be so annoying.. so whenever  my name had to be written anywhere, I ended up telling them before hand, 'Geetika', with a double 'e' and then 'tika'..!! Funny it looks to now! :P

 But nevertheless, my friends address me Geet, Geets, Getika and I was all gaga over my name!

Geetika means a small sweet little song. It is derived from a Sanskrit word ‘geet’. Isn’t it fascinating?
And it’s not stated anywhere but people do address me as the Rhythm of their Lives/Love! Oh No..! I’m not boasting.. I didn’t even think about it either. I have proof. You can check it out here!

I guess, now you’re convinced, right?! And if still not, then I think we should catch up sometime, may be you’ll learn something about a sweet little song (^_^) (*blushes*)!
And have you seen the famous ‘JabWe Met’?  Of course you’ve seen.. How can someone not see that movie? Anyway, I was exactly the same Geet. I did a skit as well in my college, taking a few scenes from the movie. All my friends knew about it and could relate with it! And the skit was pretty good as well..

I literally remember each and every dialogue of the movie and I can enact as well! Yes.. ask my husband and my friends.. they’re done listening to all of them. Whenever any situation comes, I have a dialogue ready on my tongue..! As it is I’m always ready to blabber, but during those times, the dialogues, just suits the situation! And I love every bit of it.. (*winks*)

Enough about my name.. Time to know about yours. Start talking or writing.. and I am all ready to listen!

Thanks Shailaja for coming with such an interesting topic.. I totally enjoyed writing this one!

Happy Reading


Cheers

    I often wonder if we grow into our name and act accordingly.

  6. I get very irritated when people call me Maithili or Mithali. I don't mind if they call me Mitali though *facepalm*
    But the one source of consolation for you is that they at least pronounce it right, if not spell it right. In my case, they goof up both! :D
