“What if she had been born in Faisalabad?”

Was out at Nilgiri’s near Bhudevi Farm just a while ago to bring some kabuli chana.

Overheard a Coorgi couple explaining to a friend as to why they had decided to name their daughter Ria.

“Because she was born in Austria, and those are the final three letters of that country.”

The comment quickly brought to mind an on-air dicusssion on Brian Lara’s decision to name his daughter Sydney because he hit his first century, a double ton actually, there.

Michael Holding, who was commentating, smoothly interjected: “What if he had hit his century in Faisalabad?”
