I’ve reworked the first two Uncubed comics to better match the style of the other strips.
I liked the original strips better; had more attitude! But that’s just me, I guess!
That apart, Yanks have trouble pronouncing any name that doesn’t fit the WASP dictionary of names!
Ever been to your country of descent? North Indians have trouble pronouncing South Indian names and vice-versa! So I guess it is universal!
Hey! At least you have a short first and last name that doesn’t include your place of birth, town, community, zodiac and other details that either make up a long list of initials or a large salad if used in full! Have you heard of the long, long South Indian names? But growing up north of the Niagra, I don’t suppose that you have! 😉
Thanks for the feedback – I still have the original toons, and they will definitely resurface at some point when it comes time to compile all the comics into book format. I’ve been to India 4 times in my life – the most recent trip was made in 2004 to spend some time with my wife’s family in Mumbai. I had a total blast.
I’ve definitely heard of the long South Indian name syndrome. Somehow I escaped that fate, but compared to most American names, Sadasivam is still considered long…
