My name is .....

Here is one tag I was dying to do. Thanks choxbox. Nick names we have for Anushka. . .

It reminded me of a list that my cousin cloudymusings was putting together possibly when Anush was a little over 3 months

Anush- the most commonly used abbreviation for Anushka
Chikki- my nick for her in the first few months... which I have more or less forgotten
Kankutty/ Simba- Her maternal paati seems to be unclear if she is a lion or a calf
Vella Deve Gowda- Ltd edition- her father called her that since Anush looked like a little old man in her infancy
Dhondu- her great grand ma calls her that
Laddoo- her paternal thaatha - paati call her that
Hi baby hello baby- her maternal thaathu possibly thought she will turn into vidhya balan
Anushaka babay- to rhyme with shakalaka baby and sung that way
Chilly chicken- don't ask me why- maybe because I often engage Anush with the Chicken Licken story and incorporate her as one of the characters in it
Bumchiks-i take a bow yet again
Drama Rani- The uncrowned queen of melodrama, she even says "oh my God!" with her hand against her lips and widening her eyes
Silly girl- when she is annoying - slowly gaining popularity
Dolly ma- Beauty ma - sweety ma - cutey ma - ROWDY ma- her Appa's and Anushka's current favourite

I tag the moms in the blogging world to take up this tag for themselves and reveal all.....

I read your blog and thought I could tell you about something else which would be useful for seeing maps and directions in India.

I am writing to tell you about, a free interactive maps and directions portal for all India. See the map of connaught place, new delhi, get directions in mumbai from nariman point to juhu airport, and find nearby ATMs in kormangala, bangalore.

As a company and individual enthusiasts, we dream only of solving the problem of reliable directions and navigation for India. For your blog specifically, you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia.

Do give us feedback, suggestions, or get involved yourself by mailing me back at or

And if you find the different services useful, we would be grateful to you for writing and telling your readers about us.

Warm Regards,

For directions in India, just search print and go with
