DEVI: Lesson 1 of “!nfinity” : Who said “What’s in a NAME!”?: Correct Pronunciation for Effective Communication – Cross Culture – Foreign/Indian Language/s – Names. A guide to Non-Indian speakers.


Lesson 1 of “!nfinity” : Effective Communication: Pronunciation – Cross Culture – Foreign/Indian Language/s – Names – Who said What’s in a NAME”? Shakespeare!

It was my first onsite assignment (software / IT) that too in the USA for the same client I had been working for from offshore India. (Down the Memory Lane… years back)

DEVI: yes, one day, many years back, my American client (point of contact – a male incidentally) called a lady (a few feet away) by her (not so) name “DEVI” (‘TheyVii‘ / ‘TheyVee) but as “DayVi” / “Davi”!

I was beside him, & immediately smilingly corrected him, it’s not “DayVi” / ‘Davey’ but Devii (TheyVee): ‘D’ as in “The” like “’The‘ Computer”!

He immediately got it and pronounced it correctly “TheyVii”. And he was so happy and excited that how easy it was to pronounce it! He wondered and exclaimed how nobody told him so easily earlier ever! He was also sad that he had been always calling out the name (effectively the lady) so incorrectly (on a regular basis as both of them were on work interaction constantly). The lady “Devi” also smiled.

I checked sometime back: even the dictionaries – at least online official ones & wikipedia even don’t have that easy pronunciation! (yes some audio available these days of course.)

You can thank me if you would like for this simple & easy but so precious yet invaluable tip! 🙂

note: Incidentally, “Devi” / “Devii” is an Indian (Indian subcontinent!) / Bhaaratiya name meaning “Goddess” / “Mother Goddess”. You can refer to dictionaries/ online / wiki for the meaning alone of course.

disclaimer: I have run “Spelling and Grammar check via word-tool” of this post. Even then pardon for any grammatical/typo!

WaW! TheWishesNetwork: #ConnectedNetwork #ConnectedWishes! Extend a #Wish!


Credit/caption: Prabeen: #WaW! TheWishesNetwork: #ConnectedNetwork or not; #ConnectedWishes Yes! Connected or not that, Extend a Wish! Let the Wishes’ Network grow & spread the Happiness. Let it Shine!

My “#ConnectedNetwork #ConnectedWishes” Original Theme:

#WaW! Connected NetWork! What about Wish?

Connected Network or Not! Wishes Yes!

Gift a Smile a Day, Gift a Wish a Day

to known, or not that known, 

Do that Help that may save the Day

or make the Day! 

Make that count, Bring the one IN!”

The Wishes’ Network! (if not Network of Wishes)

This goes with my #HappyCampaign – “I Wanna U to be HAPPYhttps://prabeenpati.wordpress.com/2017/01/01/i-wanna-you-to-be-happy/

(originally started sharing the theme & vision with some wherever I have travelled over the world earlier than 2015 when I wrote/composed/sang the #Happy Campaign theme & then published online as well. )

The diagram is part of my work part – blueprint/template; series & #GraphNodes based #TheWishesNetwork & considered Apache Spark GraphX.

I wish/greet the others or just smile as I see the life/being in them like we are all connected through that sole thing that keeps us all alive – “life” (praana)! 

Today, as the day of festivities/festivals/celebrations across regions: thanked & offered my prayers & ‘arpan‘ / surrendering to the #SUN (#Suuryaarghya) as well as I do everyday.

#HappyHarvests #HappyThanksgiving #ShubhMakaraSankraanti & likewise…

I have wished (extended even small contribution if it’s) many known / close / acquaintances or in touch or not so much in touch and whom I have just brief exchanges with. 

What about YOU?

Share your experiences.

That will be enriching even:

I am working on / authoring a book titled the same already.

Bring Smiles, Bring Happiness.

Spread Smiles, spread Happiness.

Wish You all the Happiness… 🙂 🙏🎉

National Anthem – Take A Stand! AndThem AndThen


#NationalAnthem: #UnitedStates of #America 🇺🇸 or #Republic of #India🇮🇳

To #Stand or Stand Not! It has been going on for more than a year now. 🤔

#USA:

  1. &Stands of President&WhiteHouse clear!
  2. &On-field some of citizens/players oppose &they don’t stand taking a stand on the pressing issues! mm
  3. &Opposers: They have issue with the President Donald Trump – the person! mm

 

#IND:

  1. #Govt changes stand & so does #SupremeCourt!?
  2. Supreme Court said its earlier order

    “Playing National Anthem & Standing” was a “Directory” not “Mandatory”!
  3. AndProtests: against again the Prime Minister Narendra Modi – the person & the Govt.!

AndQueries AndViews:

  1. AndThose who are physical/medically restricted and bound to wheels or so, can just show respect putting their main hand/palm on the heart or salute! right!
  2. AndWhy National Anthem in cinema halls or theatres! entertainment places. AndWhy?
  3. AndTo that question next it will come: why show “Smoking Kills” etc. etc. “messages in Public Interest” on the screen before playing a movie! After all it’s entertainment area! The list can go on.
  4. AndIf National Anthem played publicly (irrespective of a cinema hall entertainment! even during National Days – Republic; Independence; Events) & with proper code, show respect, stand; stand respectfully.

 

AndThem AndThen! #Theatric🤐

#&Respect

AndPlease #TakeAStand!

&No #&Right #&Left! 

It’s &Straight!

AndNo #Theatrics, &No Violence, please!!!

EndTheatrics. EndViolence.

(Though &FoodforThought: When Respect for Individual or Respect for AnyBody or so is scarce &| is taken lightly &| as a weakness, asking for Respect for/to something will be too much to ask!)
