Six face again!

six%20face.jpg

The last time I spotted an auto with ‘Six Face’ proudly emblazoned across the back, many doubted that it was actually ‘Arumugam’. So this time when I spotted another auto (no eyes, you notice?) with ‘Six Face’ on it parked at the side of the road, I pulled up behind him to ascertain what it was. The driver’s name was Mohan I found, so I asked him why the six face at the back? “Addhu owner payaru, saar.” So I verified, “Avaroda payar Arumugamma?” Back came the answer, “Aama saar”. So there you have it folks. Expect to see more of the same- Six Face, Seven Hills…..

    Since when did point blank ridicule of Tamil names turn into an ‘acceptable art’ of writing?

    Thanks Random!Parthasarathy, I dont think the people who write their names this way are ridiculing them. It seems to be a new fad, good or not. I saw a version of it this morning outside Tidel Park on an auto which had ‘7 Malai’ in English on its back.

    David,

    There are some traditional names common in certain localities of the world. Even now ‘international’ names were at one time localised to some parts.

    Ignoring this fact disrespects Tamil tradition.

    Cool!
    Its fun to come across such renditions!
    At school, we used to come up with such names
    such as “green-father-croc-who” for
    pachaiappa mudalayar!
