Back to blogging once more – Katya’s cousin’s tale

Filed under: Family Ties,Humour — Porcupyn @ 7:34 am

My niece, i.e., Katya’s cousin, had gone for a vacation in India with her family and returned recently. As part of the transportation arrangements, the family engaged a driver whose name is Ghalib. Now, for the most part, kids growing up in the USA are not really used to non-Christian names. That was definitely the case with my niece.

So it was that my niece was unsure about Ghalib’s name. It was a tongue-twister for her. One of the names she called him was ‘gulaab’ – but that was not the most hilarious. It was when she called him ‘gulaab jaamun’ 😉
