The Daily Post- Say Your Name– Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?
My father was ardent follower of Late prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Indira was his daughter’s name.So he named me Indira. He might have had some aspirations that I too will become someone like Indira Gandhi. Joking.
My father never did thrust his dreams on his children. He advised us to do whatever we like but with full conviction and our give it our 100 %.
I assume here that probably everyone knows about India’s only female Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.She was a central figure of the Indian National Congress.
Indira Gandhi was India’s third prime minister, serving from 1966 until 1984, when her life ended in assassination. She was the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister.
I think there is no story behind my name except my father liked this name too much.
There is no chance change it for anything as this has become my identity , reminds me of my father and I love when all my virtual friends address me with it.
