Why we shame a person with his nickname ?Invariably everyone of us are having very good name chosen either by grandparents or the parents and we also have the same name in the records of school, college and in other documents. But we also have some nicknames called by the parents, relatives and friends and thus the original name gets sidelined for ever. Some our names also represent the name of the God, and therefore by calling the nicknames we are also underestimating the good name. For example Venkateshan has become Vengidi, Mukundan has become Mukku etc. Don't you feel we are shaming a person by not calling him in original name ?
