My name is Unni,Vishesh Unni

Ya most of you know I am Vishesh Unni Raghunathan 🙂 But why this post all of a sudden?This post is been in the making since i started blogging some two and a half years ago.Anyway before we get to the post,I got another award,this time from Reema and Pria.
Its called the PROXIMIDADE.Since I do not happen to speak the language the award is,And also since I tried to translate this using google translator.This is the message it gave moi :
We are not yet able to translate from Galician into English.
And so I clicked on Spanish and the translator told me,it means proximity.So who I wonder should this proximity award or rather present go to?
3)Prarthana(for calling me an MCP,the first ever to do this 😛 )
4)Priya(hmm….hmmmmmm…..hmmmmmmmm….. 😀 )
5) Chirag(for his posts )
Now that,that is done ,let us get back to my name.
Vishesh in hindi means special.
Unni in malayalam means small.
The best part is I am Tamil.And even better is the fact that I know neither malayalam nor hindi(Ok i can Understand them alright.Hindi slightly more,thanks to my class mates.Malayalam is more like Tamil spoken through the nose.)
So my name actually means Special Small.
When i was small i used hate the Unni(as its meaning in Tamil is different and also it rhymes with panni[pig]) in my name.But now i have gotten used to it.Actually i would have been named Vishesh Unni Krishnan,but then seeing that it would be too long,they decided to make it shorter to Vishesh Unni.
And since my name involves two languages,people assume me to be a Mallu or somewhere from the North .I actually don’t mind that,I feel weird only when people start talking to me in Malayalam or hindi.Well whatever,here I am Unni,Vishesh Unni.Though i prefered to be known as Vishesh.
Speical Small whatever…I am special that is all I care about 😛
