Robert Lund was the director of a women's hostel. The warden gave a speech and the sub-titles were:

"Humari khush kismati hai ki aaj hamare beech lundji pravesh hai. Unke aane se pura mahaul khushiyon se bhar gaya hai. Hum Lundji se darkhwast karte hain ki woh upar aaye aur do shabd kahein."

Baajwaa (actually 'Vaajwaa') would translate to "Bajaaiye" in Hindi. That should make it clear

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Well, here in Auckland where I am, you can find some weird and hard to spell tongue-twister like surnames of the pacific islanders. Eg:Faaumaaitaoto.

(Not to mention that they themselves are pretty weird rotfl: )
