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!

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… 🙂 🙏🎉

MLA Asha KuMari – Asha Kyun Maari!? #VIPtude #TheHighHand


What occupied the news on TV / social media today the 29th December 2017?
Congress MLA Asha Kumari assaulted and slapped a woman constable, but to her shock got slapped back (rightfully). It’s speculated that the MLA was being denied entry to Rahul Gandhi’s review meeting in Shimla. So my humour/satire/view on the one chosen for today’s news in India:


(based on the news, the video footage/s available. English + Hindii):

“Every action has an EQUAL and OPPOSITE reaction.”

That’s what’s required –

taking up the matter directly in one’s own hands literally.

That’s how one should treat / react & respond to a slap (/ physical abuse or manhandling, oops #womanhandling). As holding one’s own calm, bearing, tolerating and then taking up the matter through complaint or process doesn’t work really. Big #slap to the #Congress #Female #MLA / politicians’s fake ego & #VIPtude or #HighHandedNess.

& Look at the MLA’s !

paataa nahiin MLA kaa GAAL to SHIMLA/HIMACHAL SEV/APPLE kii tarah LAAL ho gaye hongey aur uskaa Aham! or #BLACKENED to say

“PoliceLady on duty” ki thappadd to MLA ke gaalon pe bahut bhaari pad-gaye ke muhn idhar kaa udhar ho gayaa, aur phir bhii she tried to slap d police lady again! But the police lady was alert and just blocked and grabbed the slapping hand of the MLA Woman Politician.

MLA aka WoManhandling Lady Asha – Asha Kumari’ki Aashaa Hataashaa mein churr churr ho gayii 🤣

So Lady, don’t mess-up with a ‘LADY on DUTY‘!

#RespectForIndividual a must – not to be violated because of so called position/power / self-obsession.

I think for the first time in a long while, instant karma being served in the origin of the term or philosophy of Karma. Otherwise I thought instant karma in the West but long or unknown long Karma cycle in Bhaarata/India.

#Congress, #KaunsaGrace? #NoGrace! #WhatAFace #disgrace

It seems,

#Congress members are taking / (ab)using literally their party symbol – a hand

MLA Asha KuMari – Asha Kyun Maari!? ya phirr ultaa Asha ko Kyun Maari!? lol

Feeder for a Review in #RahulGandhi‘s review meeting! lol

Don’t worry, Lady Asha! Rahul’ji may or may not dispel you from the party for this! You have used the Party Symbol – party property literally! LoL
