Coming Out

Not of THAT kind though ;)

When I started blogging, I thought going with an 'alias' was the norm. So...I became Scarlett. I'd rather get out there now.

Hi...I'm Aishwarya. Or you can call me Ash, as most people do. In fact there was a time (in college) when it used to take me a while to respond to 'Aishwarya'. The Americans could never get my name right, and I too felt bad for those poor souls. 'Ash' just made everyone's life easier, most of all my professors' & those guys at the coffee shop who gave me my daily fix of caffeine. I'm not really stuck up on my name, just as long as you don't call me 'Ass-warya', something the woman at the library back in high school used to do! Unintentionally, of course. English wasn't her firts language.

The photo's up too. Yup, that's me! That's who I am! And I prefer it this way! :)

Scarlett said...

@Bricks - No particular reason. True, anonymity allowed me to crib about people...but I prefer it this way :)

@Mumbai Diva - Thanks! You were my inspiration :)

Hmm.. Nice to put a name and a face to your posts.. but to bend a quote from Peter Parker, "With a name and a face comes great responsibility".. Does impact your ability to crib, don't you think??

Scarlett said...

@RJ - Yes it does but I'd rather have it this way. It's not worth having an opinion if you can't take the credit/discredit for it.
