Life as I Know It

The Humble Me…

“Why did wsha1e give you this name,” my Mom screamed, throwing her hands up in the air with mere frustration.

I was named Shalini- meaning Modest. It’s a completely different story that I nowhere gave justice to my name, my entire childhood. I was always naughty and complicated. 


I’m also called Shalu by my near and dear ones. Back then, I did love my name only because of a famous South Indian Actress. She was a child artist in the movies and was extremely cute and loved by all. But as days passed, I realised that my name also meant the Lady of the House. Cool, isn’t it. I can be Unassuming, resourceful and also mean a type of tree/flower.

The first time I was asked this question was in my Career training Sessions at college. I knew it meant modest and the trainer did say that my personality is sweet and humble. I remember being happy about it. But this is the first time that I am actually “researching” about my name and I actually found great things. I felt so elated finding what the Urban dictionary had to tell: 🙂


Oh, now I am blushing. 😛

Though the name is popular down South in India, it is a unique name in general. The numerolgy of my name says that I would play the big brother or big sister, and make’s the perfect older child. I shall be very sensitive to the needs of others and very compassionate. I am imaginitive, dreamy and artistically talented. Cent percent true. Wow!! I feel really good about myself now, and I hum the popular Malayalam film song, “Shaleena pournami urangiyo…”- (Oh humble moon, did you sleep!).
