My Name is….

“…and for this topic i would recommend u to read the first prescribed textbook, Ayala. Kenneth J. Ayala….”
Heads turn towards me from all around the class. Sudhir shouts “Kenneth!” while Amruth exclaims ” Aila?!” ( if u get tat pun ).
it s not often that my name comes up in a classroom discussion.
i was ,of course, expecting this reaction when i had gone through the syllabus earlier on.
Everyone likes a good diversion.. especially when we have just come back from the holidays and confined to sleepy classrooms.

My name, being a foriegn name, doesnt appear much out of the way. it did pop up once in primary-the fourth standard- in a poem called the ‘Duck’s Ditty’ (i think) by scottish poet
Kenneth Graham. this caused a fair amount of hullabaloo in the class that i remember so much about it. Also you might have come across it in the credits of movies,..etc. especially in the credits of Tom and Jerry cartoons.
You will find there’s a Kenneth Muse in there.

All the same i like my name ; the whole of it, and ofcourse all the undue attention it brings 🙂
