Naamkaran Ceremony of my Blog!

Pehla baccha hai….accha naam rakhna padega! LOL!
This was the exact thought in my head when I was looking out for an apt name for my….err…baccha.
And believe me (or not), it took me almost a week to finally choose something unique and catchy.

To be honest, some of the blogs that I religiously follow have out-of-the-box, whacky names…so I had to activate my think tank to get something hatke out of it…

PART 1
“How about Tattletales?” I pinged my sister while she was at her workplace.
Now a quick detour. I was watching FRIENDS Season3 Episode4: Thanksgiving Lightning Confessions.

B1

I think you got the gist of what I’m trying to say here!

After an hour she replies “You know what it means right?”
I quickly replied, ”Yeah” (rolling my eyes) and sent her this too.

She plainly replied, “Think of something better”
“Duh…okay…”

 

PART 2
Now…I always had this fascination for the word ‘Fernweh”. Its a beautiful German word that means ‘longing for a distant place’ or simply….Wanderlust.
And just to give it an Alliteral effect, I suffixed Fernweh with ‘Flutters’.

Fernweh Flutters. Sounds nice

Heading to the Approval Department (Mom included this time), which by the way, flatly rejected my proposal citing “it makes no sense” as the reason….. -_-

 

PART 3
Suddenly, another German word “Luftmensch” popped into my head.
Luftmensch – Persons with tendency to dream….

Luftmensch…what…?….Loiters…?
I cannot understand my affinity towards Alliteration (Probably it was the easiest Figure of Speech 😛 )

So I concluded…if Fernweh cannot flutter…Luftmensh cannot loiter….
Didn’t even head to the Approval Department….

 

PART 4
Just after dinner….My sister asked me, ”How about The Lone Musketeer?”
I snapped back, “I don’t want my people to think my blog is about a single girl who is ranting about her boring life” (Little clarification here: Single life rocks…;) )

But again I wasn’t able to come up with something nice…so reluctantly I agreed…

 

PART 5
The very next day, I came across an article in  Times Life – Bohemian Embroidery in vogue.
Something clicked. I kinda knew what bohemian meant…some hippie gypsy thing…but just to make sure, I looked it up in the dictionary. There it was, gazing back at me..
Bohemian – An unconventional or non-conformist artist or writer

THAT IS SO ME!!! 😀
My eyes lit up.
I lit up 😀

Okay. What goes with Bohemian…
What does any person with an unconventional way of life face?….Hardships?….or better..Blues?? (See….Alliteration…again :P)
And right there….

BOHEMIAN BLUES!!!!
Sounds cool enough.
Got it approved too! 😀

 

Finally my baccha has a name….!! 😀

So here we go…a little about me… :)

Well…for starters…I’m a convent school survivor! Not only school, even junior college..(though I have to admit that junior college was better). And as of now, I’ll be graduating in the month of July from one of the best institutions of commerce in Pune (BMCC).
Don’t ask me about my future plans! In a confused state of mind..its like I know yet I’m not sure…best, chuck it for now..
Umm..what else should you know about me?…uhmm..okay
I’m fluent in five languages (English, Hindi, Marathi, Konkani and German).I’m a proud polyglot and its something that I love bragging about! And I share the exact polyglot status with my sister, so we kinda have a secret code language!:p And man, its fun!
I loveeee to read! I’m not a geek, but a voracious reader who won’t notice anyone’s existence when there’s a book in hand. I can read anything and everything that I lay my hands on with an enviable speed (don’t miss the smirk on my face here! :p). But novels and poetry..they’re special…they are food for my soul 🙂
I’m a singer too – professionally trained in the art of bathroom singing. And I also love listening to music..its my stress buster :).
I’m extremely creatively inclined. I like drawing and painting. My pallets and brushes and colours are what I call my “Weapons of Mass Creation” 😉 Sometimes the Poetess in me also awakens 🙂
Photography is something that I’m passionate about. I’m a living proof that you don’t need a DSLR to win a photography competition!
I’m trained in Taekwondo (A Korean martial art form) and I love playing Badminton. Also, Swimming! I’m a hard-core Cancerian and a Aqua-holic water baby!! 😀
Apart from this, I’m a child at heart who finds happiness in the smallest of all things 😀 (Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens kind of person) Also yes a chatter-box whose jaws ache if shut for more than half an hour.
I would list myself into the Ambivert category-I love having lots of people around me but after a while I’ll start questioning the existence of everything around me.
And If ever you need an example for a living Paradox..you can safely go ahead with my name.

And I have a sweet tooth ( or should I say sweet mouth? Coz I can gorge on sweets unapologetically at any moment 24/7 365 days of the year!)
Okay this needs a special mention: The above mentioned me , is a loyal FRIENDS fan :D. Suits follows closely.
Oh and yes..I’m a conscious and vocal feminist…who believes in equality.
Lastly, writing is my passion…join me on my Boho-journey…and you’ll see! 😀bb4
