    :tearsofjoy: The post is super hilarious. I had never heard of such funny Maharashtrian surnames.
    A question does pop into my head.. Y do south indians dont have surnames? They write the name of their father in front of their names right(boys especially)??

    Most of them from Andhra,Telangana and Karnataka have surnames.
    Usually people from Tamil Nadu do not have surnames unlike other South Indian states.

    :hello:
    Having been staying and touring Maharashtra, I used to wonder about the origins the alpha and omega of these names. I had to strain to distinguish the names from one another & developed a knack to put these names in memory as I had numerous occasions to call staff on phone in an office of around 250. All names ending with “ car” used to put me in queer situation.

    In Parsi community dominating in business and in defence used to have names indicating a profession. I had a friend by name Daruwalla but never I found him intoxicated. Asober soul. (Daaru is an intoxicating liquid).
    Thanks and Regards.

    interesting and hilarious !!
    we being north indians, we only hear sharma, verma, gupta, shukla, bansal, kansal, jindal, agarwal, dwivedi, chaturvedi, trivedi, tiwari, pandey and the ubiquitious singh !! i think singh as a surname goes with anything, i dont mean to offend anybody here, but singh is a very common surname here and majority of north indians use this sirname .

    i ahve heard most of these surnames, though not all, one of the perks of working in an all india organisation is this only, you get to meet so many people form different parts of the country and from places i wasnt even aware of :shakehead:
