Would you hire a Parkshit?

I’d like to take credit for the above headline, but it is not mine. It comes from the hallowed pages of BBC news. Would you hire a Parkshit? – is an article about the pressures and effects of changing one’s name to adapt to a new culture.

Now, this is something with which I have some personal experience. The change, for me, was not very drastic and I was fortunate not to have such an unfortunate starting point as the poor sap stuck with the name in the above title. Nonetheless, my original name was spelled and pronounced slightly differently from its current form.

For now, just contemplate whether as an employer you would hire a Parkshit.
