I can hear a lot of you asking 'why this question now'? A few are thinking what went wrong. Yes I did watch a few scenes from the block buster movie Gajini last night but I'm not into any temporary memory loss or the kinds. Then Why am I asking this stupid question?
I have one younger sister who has made me laugh,wiped my tears, hugged me tight, watched me succeed, made me mad, cheered me up and made me the strong person I am now. She is one beautiful, talented and a very intelligent soul I know. This may not sound something new to quite a lot reading through.
At parties or other family celebrations if we are caught amidst the group of gossipping relatives (which we most of the times avoid) its become a practice for us to nod our heads when we are addressed by any of our names. Its been a big confusion till date amongst our relatives whom we visit not quite often. Both of our names start with "A" . Is that the reason for the confusion?
In our childhood days we spent our summer vacations at our grandma's place, and at the end of 2 sunny months probably we would have corrected atleast 20 of them with our right names :) , thats because I was addressed as "Archana" and my sis would be called "Ashwini".
As years passed by we've both got used to this so much that in either of our absence in case one calls me by her name or if she is called by my name - we simply answer back the call and respond.
Last week When I saw "Spicy Sweet" a fellow blogger wishing Archana for my Birthday, I had missed the name part on the comment, for that is habitual now. But yesterday another fellow blogger "Sujatha" addressed me as Archana in her comment. Oh no! This made me wonder who I am - Archana or Ashwini? and so you have this post out here. Don't worry girls I am not offended and my sister has also conveyed her thanks for the advance wishes. I pretty well know who I am. LOLz :)
I met a set of sisters in a train, couple of years ago,who have been named "Ashwini" and "Archana". Probably that was the best known trendy names of the era we were born in.
Now how many of you are confused with my name ?? hmmm Ashwini or Archana ??
