The Amusing Case of Nick Names

first_imgIt is usually said that you are not a Punjabi if you do not know a “Happy”. Plainly speaking, “Happy” happens to be one of the commonest nicknames among Punjabis. I know, at least ten of them. Such is our penchant for giving the nicknames to our kids that many of them have to carry it like an Albatross around their neck throughout their life. Though given lovingly, these pet names sometimes turn out to be an object of fun and ridicule. Picture a house where celebrations are on for an upcoming wedding. Suddenly, a cab stops outside disgorging a few guests. The groom’s younger sister comes rushing in, ecstatically announcing “ Guddi Mausi aa gai,Guddi Mausi aa gai”. All eyes expectantly turn towards the drawing room door to welcome perhaps the much awaited prominent relative. For those who do not know “Guddi Mausi” are in for a bit of disappointment as the newest guest is at least seventy year old, with jet black dyed hair, ill-fitting new denture with darting eyes behind her faded gold-rimmed glasses. She can be anything but a “Guddi”. No doubt, the name given so affectionately in infancy had struck and promptly every one forgot its real meaning.Guddi Mausi is not only a stray case .Every family has Munni/ Guddi/Dolly Mausi or Bua. And neither the addressee nor the addressed mind these names because as I wrote earlier the meanings get forgotten, just the names remain struck. It is only when these names are called before the strangers that amused eye-brows are raised. If we dwell a bit deep into the types of common pet or nick names, we can easily find a handful of categories they can be clubbed into. The foremost category, I feel, is of the names that bespeak affection and pampering of the parents or grandparents. Besides the usual Guddi,Guddu,Dolly,Munni in females, the boys get Kaka,Kaku, Bittu,Raju,Babbu etc. Many a name is unisex .Sonu and Babbu immediately come to my mind.A few names just get a syllable to change its gender Like Babbu/Babbi or Bablu/Babli,Bittu/Bitti and so on. My dear readers can continue their own research .Quite often, the prominent physical traits also contribute in the naming process. The kids with small or slit-like eyes are named Cheenu,Cheena or even Chinky .An excessively fair baby is christened Gora or a darker one is Kala. The comedy or the tragedy arises when the kid grows against the name. A Gora can get darker hue as he grows up. I know a Kala who is quite fair but he was named so because he was not as fair as his other siblings. In the same vein a baby with light eyes is so often known in his family circles as Billa. If the light eyed child is baby girl, she stands quite solid chance of being called Billo. Pinky also belongs to this class.Further, we also have a practice of giving anglicised pet names to the kids. Happy that I mentioned in the first line, obviously falls into that category. In addition to this, we are familiar with Baby,Nancy,Mini,Rosie ,Tony,Johny,Bobby,Puppy etc. It’s another matter that we also name our pet dogs as Tony,Johny sometimes. Then, there are nick names that defy any meaning or category.Rinku,Tinku,Neetu,Teetu,Bunty,Meenu,Teenu are a few examples of this type.These nick names are not the monopoly of us commoners. The most well-known celebrity siblings with nick names are Sunny and Bobby Deol. They just left their proper names and have adopted their pet names. I think, same is the case with Sonu Sood. On the other hand late Rishi Kapoor, who was fondly called Chintu and was easily recognised everywhere by his nick name , hated it. He always wanted to be called Rishi. He refrained from giving any such sobriquets to his own kids- Ranbir and Ridhima. However, his elder brother Randhir Kapoor also has a funny pet name-Daboo.He seems to be comfortable with it as his daughters too have equally amusing nicknames-Lolo and Bebo.The third Kapoor brother Rajeev enjoys Chimpu as his epithet. Coming to another celebrity with interesting pet name is Govinda, lovingly called Chichi. Don’t ask for its meaning.Personally speaking, almost everyone in my family sports a pet name despite my grandmother’s best efforts .She became vehemently against pet names when the would-be father-in-law of one of my uncles phoned my grandfather asking for the actual name of my uncle for the wedding card. Since the families knew each other my uncle was known by his pet name. When grandpa shared this laughingly with her, she became serious that from now onwards no kid in the family would have nick name, though it took almost a generation to stop this tradition and that too partially.However, nick names have a charm of their own. Your joy knows no bounds when you pick an unknown number and the caller on the other side addresses you with your pet name, especially when you grow older and you realise that only a few people are left who can call you like this. With the passing of each elder relative, the number continues to dwindle. Surprisingly, I know a few parents who started addressing their kids with their proper names when they got job or got married or simply turned adults. The same kid who was unabashedly called with his pet name by his parents before me and I also addressed him like that was being called by his formal name. Not only this, I was also instructed to call him so .Naturally, I assured compliance. But I could not comprehend this new found formality and respect. It seemed so artificial. Anyway, all of us have our own proclivities.I think every region in India has this tradition of having the nick names. Some nick names are typically Punjabi but a lot of commonly given nick names have a pan Indian acceptability. The trends keep changing and so do the names. But parents, grandparents need to desist from naming their wards which they might get ashamed of as they grow up. I knew someone with a nick name Litchi and the girl always tried her best to keep it known to as few people as possible. At least ,there is no such problem with our “Happy”.last_img read more

America’s Loss: Congressman Elijah Cummings Dies at Age 68

first_imgFILE PHOTO: House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) addresses a National Press Club luncheon on his “committee’s investigations into President Donald Trump and his administration,” in Washington, U.S., August 7, 2019. REUTERS/Mary F. Calvert/File Photo WASHINGTON, D.C. – Like the rest of America, The Caribbean American community on South Florida woke up on Thursday morning to the sad news of the passing of US Congressman Elijah Cummings, 68, earlier that morning.Cummings, represented Maryland’s 7th Congressional District since 1996, and up to the time of his death served as chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, one of the committees currently involved in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.According to Cummings’ office the congressman had been ailing for some time and died from “complications concerning longstanding health challenges,”Cummings wife, and Maryland Democratic Party chair, Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said her husband worked until the day he died because he believed “our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity, and  that our nation’s diversity was our promise, not our problem.”Tributes from Pelosi and ObamaRepresentative Cummings who was known for his powerful oratory and melodic delivery, earned the respect of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Paying tribute to him on his passing, Speaker Pelosi said, He was a leader of towering character and integrity. Whose stirring voice and steadfast values pushed the Congress and country to rise always to a higher purpose.”Former President Barack Obama tweeted, “Michelle and I are heartbroken over the passing of our friend Elijah Cummings. May his example inspire more Americans to pick up the baton and carry it forward in a manner worthy of his service.”Tributes from South Florida Caribbean American leadersCity of Lauderdale Lakes Mayor Hazelle Rogers calls Cummings passing. “An irreparable loss not only to the US Congress, but American politics generally. He sought a bi-partisan approach to solve the nation’s problem and with his approach was much loved on both sides of the political divide. Elijah was a humble and dedicated giant in American politics and will be sorely missed.”Broward County’s Vice-Mayor Dale Holness, said, “Congressman Cummings’s passing is so sad, especially at this time when the country needs dedicated, courageous patriots, like he definitely was, to heal the yawning divide being experienced in the nation. He was respected by all in congress; a man of absolute integrity who stood for absolute integrity.”City of Miramar Mayor said, “Such a major, and sad loss. He was a great man.”Relationship with President TrumpDespite his health problems, as chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee Cummings oversaw a range of investigations into the Trump administration. In addition to the current impeachment enquiry, these included the treatment of migrants, especially children, at the southern border of the US.Last August following Cummings fiery questioning of a Department of Home Security official related to the detention of immigrant children, he drew the ire of President Trump, who in a tweet referred to Baltimore, Cummings home city, as a “disgusting rat and rodent-infested mess” and infamously blamed Cummings for the “mess.”Trump’s criticism prompted a strong backlash from the African American community in general, and the residents of Baltimore, in particular. This was testament to the love and high esteem in which Cummings was held as the Congressional representative of Maryland.In response to Trump’s trade, Cummings invited Trump to Baltimore, saying, “The President is welcome to go through the 7th Congressional District. He will see strong people who get up and go out to work on the early bus. He’ll see people, he’ll see organizations that have come to the inner city of Baltimore ….and did not go around criticizing, but said, ‘How can we help?’ And they have helped. I welcome the President. I would love to see him.”Trump Pays TributeTrump did not accept the invitation, and there are no indications he apologized to Cummings for his tirade against him and Baltimore. But on the passing of Cummings, Trump tweeted, “I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!”Sherifa Dixon-Wright, Jamaican-American social worker in Baltimore tearfully told CNW, “Baltimore has developed socially and economically in leaps and bounds since Elijah has been in Congress. He was all Baltimore. He was so dedicated he came home from DC every night to the city he loved, even when not feeling well. This was a very unusual human being. He is gone too soon. How can we ever replace him?”FIU political science student, Mikhail Burger said he heard the news of Cumming’s passing just before he entered a tutorial on the role of the House Oversight and Reform Committee in Congress. “This is really weird. The congressman was my focus in this tutorial, and he had just died. Researching his life and work intensely in recent days, I found him a fearless black man of steadfast courage and integrity, a compassionate man who strived for the working class and fairness for all. He had perfect qualities for chairing the Oversight Committee. It’s such a pity to lose his dedicated service.”last_img read more

Trump suggests Canada has been sidelined from latest NAFTA negotiations

first_imgOTTAWA – U.S. President Donald Trump is suggesting Canada has deliberately been left on NAFTA’s sidelines as one-on-one talks heat up between Washington and Mexico.For four straight weeks, U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo have held bilateral negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement, while Canada has been absent from the bargaining table.Canadian officials have insisted they’re unfazed by being left out of the discussions because it’s allowing the U.S. and Mexico to sort out tough bilateral issues, such as their differences on autos. They’ve stressed that there have been a lot of one-on-one talks during NAFTA’s renegotiation process.But some observers have refused to buy that argument. They’ve said Ottawa’s partners have frozen it out of the critical NAFTA negotiations as a tactic and have warned that Canada could eventually be forced into accepting a deal reached between the U.S. and Mexico.Trump appeared to feed that belief during a televised cabinet meeting in Washington on Thursday — on the one-year anniversary of the start of NAFTA’s renegotiation.“We’re not negotiating with Canada right now,” said Trump, who has frequently complained about Canada’s supply-managed dairy sector.“Their tariffs are too high, their barriers are too strong, so we’re not even talking to them right now. But we’ll see how that works out. It will only work out to our favour.”During the cabinet meeting, Lighthizer told the room he’s hoping for a NAFTA breakthrough with Mexico in the coming days.“I’m hopeful with Mexico and then I hope once we get one with Mexico that Canada will come along,” Lighthizer said.The U.S. and Mexican governments have both expressed optimism the entire NAFTA renegotiation could be concluded before the end of the month.But Trump insisted Thursday that he’s in “no rush” to make a deal.“If you don’t have a breakthrough, as you call it, don’t do the deal because it’s a lousy situation for the United States,” he told Lighthizer.“We have much better alternatives than that, you understand? So, if you can’t make the right deal, don’t make it.”Trump added that NAFTA has “been a disaster for our country.”Asked about Trump’s remarks Thursday, a spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Ottawa’s officials remain in touch with their American and Mexican partners.“Minister Freeland, Ambassador (David) MacNaughton and the Canadian negotiating team are in regular contact with their counterparts and we look forward to continuing these important discussions in the coming weeks,” Adam Austen wrote in an email.“Our focus remains defending Canadian interests as we work towards a modernized, updated NAFTA agreement.”Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitterlast_img read more

Terror financing: ED attaches Shabir Shah’s family house in Srinagar

first_imgNew Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached a Srinagar-located asset linked to Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah in connection with a 14-year-old terror funding and money laundering case against him and others, the agency said on Friday.The property is located in Effandi Bagh in the Rawalpora area of Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir’s summer capital, and the central probe agency issued a provisional order to attach the asset under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The action is part of a multi-agency crackdown launched by the government against separatists and terror operatives functioning from Kashmir Valley. The ED said the asset is being “held in the name” of Shah’s wife and daughters. The seized asset is valued at Rs 25.8 lakh, the agency said. It added that Shah, currently in judicial custody, is “involved in carrying out illicit activities along with his accomplice Mohd Aslam Wani, who is an activist of banned militant organisation JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammad)”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”Shah was using Wani as a carrier for collecting hawala money sent by his Pakistan-based sympathisers through hawala operators…,” the agency said. Records show, the ED said, that this property has been gifted to Shah’s wife and daughters by his sisters-in-law in 2005, which was purchased in their name by his father-in-law in 1999. However, in spite of repeated opportunities given to Shah’s father-in-law and sisters-in-law they failed to justify the sources of fund to acquire the property, the agency claimed. Investigation has also revealed that Shah is the de-facto owner of the property purchased through unexplained source of fund by his father-in-law, it alleged. The ED said its probe revealed that Shah “was in touch with global terrorist Hafeez Sayeed, chief of banned outfit Jamat-ud-Dawa based in Pakistan and that he had been receiving money for carrying out separatist activities in J-K and has acquired various properties through a maze of dubious transactions”. Shah and Wani were arrested by the ED in 2017. Wani was granted bail by a court in January 2019. The case dates back to August 2005 case when the Delhi Police’s special cell arrested Wani (37), an alleged hawala dealer, who had claimed that he had passed on Rs 2.25 crore to Shah.last_img read more

Buchanan Rola march on for Ohio State tennis

Most of he Ohio State men’s tennis team might already be back in Columbus after its weekend loss against UCLA, but two members of the team are still on the road chasing national championship dreams. The No. 5-seeded Buckeyes were eliminated by No. 4 UCLA Saturday, 4-2, but senior Chase Buchanan and sophomore Blaz Rola remain in Athens, Ga., to compete in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships. Rola and Buchanan received at-large selections for the singles tournament and, after posting a 30-4 record in doubles matches this season, will also team up for the doubles championship. NCAA Singles and Doubles Championship action begins Wednesday in Athens at the University of Georgia’s Dan Magill Tennis Complex and will last throughout the day. “We would like to be playing in the Final Four but it wasn’t in the cards for us,” said OSU coach Ty Tucker. “There was no shame losing to UCLA. We needed to be about 5 percent better in every spot.” The Buckeyes finished the season with a 34-4 overall record and their quarterfinal berth marked their seventh consecutive NCAA quarterfinal appearance. After Buchanan and Rola’s loss Saturday, the top-ranked doubles pair in the nation dropped an 8-6 decision to the No. 44-ranked doubles team from UCLA, made up of redshirt junior Alex Brigham and sophomore Adrien Puget. Buchanan said while the loss was disappointing, the best thing to do is move on. “You try to forget about it. You can’t take it too hard,” he said. “It was tough playing as my last time with the team, but I’m looking forward to the opportunity to play with Blaz.” For the senior, looking forward was a bit easier than for the sophomore from Slovenia. “It’s been tough. I didn’t regroup yesterday (Monday),” Rola said. “Not at dinner, I couldn’t talk in the press conference, but I slept through it – thank God – and I have some time to get ready.” Tucker said both players have good momentum after the loss and Buchanan said he is preparing for his final opportunity to leave a lasting impression on the program. “Mentally and physically, I have prepared all season. I took a day off yesterday,” he said. “There’s a lot of great teams and we need to prepare hard and take everyone seriously so we can come out on top.” Though both players said they are sad to compete for the last time together, the nation’s top-seeded doubles pairing agreed they are still excited for the task ahead. “It’s a great feeling to be the first seed, but I never go into a match thinking we’re No. 1 in the country,” Rola said. “Maybe I should, but I stay humble to keep the pressure away.” Both players said they welcome the challenges presented by the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, as well. “This atmosphere is intense,” Rola said. “It’s unbelievable. (It’s) the best place to play in college tennis.” read more

Ohio State mens hockey travels almost 4000 miles to face Alaska

Ohio State men’s ice hockey coach Mark Osiecki said the biggest obstacle this weekend for his team might not be its opponent. After all, Central Collegiate Hockey Association foe Alaska is almost 4,000 miles away from the Schottenstein Center. “The challenge is just getting there and trying to get back to normal as quickly as you can,” Osiecki said of the trip to Fairbanks, Alaska, for its series against the Nanooks. Only one point separates OSU and Alaska for fifth place in the CCHA standings and a first-round bye in the conference’s tournament which starts on March 8. Osiecki called Tuesday’s practice “an outstanding day” and said he believes his team will be ready for Alaska’s high-speed attack. “They’re fast and they get after you,” Osiecki said. “Their system is their transition, is their speed, is their compete level. They’ll be tough to play against up there.” OSU (11-11-6, 10-6-4-1 CCHA) left for Fairbanks Wednesday in order to get acclimated with the four-hour time difference. The team is coming off a win against Notre Dame Friday and a shootout loss against the Irish Saturday. Sophomore forward Max McCormick said Tuesday he was looking forward to the trip across the country. “It’ll be a long trip, but I have never been to Alaska, so that will be kind of cool and it will be interesting to see (what) it’s like up there,” McCormick said. Junior forward Chris Crane will be making his second trip to Fairbanks and remembers travel issues two years ago, the last time OSU played there. “We got there and none of our luggage is there, our hockey bags aren’t there,” Crane said. “We can’t even brush our teeth.” Alaska (12-10-4, 10-9-3-1 CCHA) is coming off two losses at Miami last weekend which snapped a six-game win streak. The Nanooks house one of the few Olympic-sized ice sheets in the country. Crane said he believes the larger rink will be beneficial for the Buckeyes. “I think the Olympic-sized sheet actually helps us with our speed,” Crane said. “We are a high-end speed team.” McCormick said previous long trips to places such as Lake Superior State have helped he and his teammates learn how to get their bodies ready to play. Crane said he agreed with McCormick that staying focused is important. “I think it’s important to emphasize just staying concentrated, staying hydrated throughout the day,” Crane said. “Getting the rest and maybe carrying a pillow on the plane so you’re comfortable and not sore when you get off it.” The series is the only road trip for OSU in February. The teams are set to square off at 11:05 p.m. EST Friday and Saturday night at the Carlson Center. read more
