Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Bedi --- In Kannada it means "loose motion" So lot of Kannadigas pronounce this name with 'd' as in dictionary... Ask them why ??

"Tullu Pumps" - the famous water pump used in old air coolers at home. They had to rename this as "Shiva Pumps" in Karnataka. Guess what "Tullu" means in Karnataka?

A friend of mine on a recent visit to Mumai met a sexy thing trying to break in to movies ... her name ... Nisha KOPYKER.

This friend also visited a temple in South India ... the man in charge of temple vip desk ... Mr. Londa.
