A household name

Okay, someone just introduced herself to me with a "My name is Sheela." and I just gaped at her for five seconds, not knowing what to say. All I can say is that it took an immense amount of self-control not to say the next few lines, complete with the clapping hands dance movement.

Guess that's one more name that will be struck off the new editions of baby name books, along with Munni.

lols! finally a post after ages!! I checked your bolg each day and was thinking of mailing you to see if all was gud in your world!

How do we know said...

how can u forget. .Monica.. o my darling..

Soumya said...

Hahaha, I seriously pity real life people with those names..

I read an article about 2 sisters, one called Sheela and the other called Munni, who were forced to change their names after these songs were released. They must have been cursing their parents for all you know!

Neha said...

hahaha...that name is sure off the list!! :D. Good self control , i must say :P

Deepu said...

Anybody who has that name should be happy! I find it damn cool since Katrina is so pretty in the song. :P Yah, it would be hard to not say the lines though. :) I remember calling out Monica, and hoping my colleagues would fill up the lines when someone named the same passed by. Mind you, some dhakkans dutifully complied. :))

Geomon said...

lolz!
there was a guy who introduced himself as 'My name is Khan', and I just had to supress my guffaw when someone behind him said '...and I bet you are not a terrorist'. :P

Geomon said...

#Raam Pyari,
Have been under the weather, sistah. Hope to start blogging regularly again soon. :)

#How do we know,
Hahahaha! Ok that one is not too demeaning towards Monica. What can she do if some guys calls her darling? :P

#Soumya,
Oh dear! Poor sisters!! They must have been teased like mad!!

#Neha,
:D

#Deepu,
Wait till they come up with a Deepu song!!! :D

#Arun,
I have noticed that you have been commenting more and more in Hindi, and it's getting pretty good!! :D

#Geomon,
Wah wah what poetry! :D
Bhai ka bar band kaise?
Binnnas itna mand kaise?
Tumne likhe itne chhand kaise?
Tum itne akalmand kaise? :D

Angelsera said...

baby names?? :D

Geomon said...

reception ho ya inflation, bar ka binnes kabhi band nahi hota :P

Arun said...

Bollywood experts - on a totally different song - Mein chali by Shreya Ghoshal - (can't get it out of my head) - is it also in the movie "Black and White" where the male version of the song is definitely there?

Deepu said...

that is a good idea. Do you know a good song writer? :) Should sound a bit macho, might as well get Sukhwinder to sing it. :D

Sayesha said...

#Angelsera,
Please don't name your baby Sheila or Munni.

#Geomon,
:D

#Arun,
That is correct. I love that song too. Also 'jogi aaya' from the same movie.

#Deepu,
Good song writer? Arre apun hai na! Vishal se gawayenge, macho voice and all!
My name is Deepu
Deepu ki jawani
Sheela Munni se bhi zyada
Hai meri badnaami!!

Arun said...

What about a list of your all-time top 10 favorite Bollywood songs?

Deepu said...

Vishal is ok, songwriter yeh kya likh baita hain? badalna padega. grrr! :)

Arun said...

For SSSK.

Sayesha said...

#Arun,
Not a bad idea at all! I may have to split into oldies and new ones though... will work on it. :)

#Deepu,
Hahahaha! Vishal ko bhi badal denge lekin songwriter (and song) nahin badlega! Muahahaha! :D

#Arun,
Whoa... heavy stuff! But you reminded me that SSSK also needs to come out of hiding. Soon! ;)

I have a client contact who many times goes on a no no no no mode on the call and I have to resist the temptation to sing sheila ki jawaani after that.
