Chits, Chitz, Chitu, Chitrahaar (came to know this through Khushi) – by some people whom I have met through my blog
Chi, Chits – by Aki and Anu
ViChitra - by both Ashu and her Father
Cheethakka -> Cheetha – by Adi. He cannot pronounce ‘r’ syllable yet :) ! Fancy me being compared to a leopard; the leopard would die of shame :) !
Chitraangada, Chitravaani, Chitrapushpa – by Mia.....eons ago
Chittu, Goobe, ChiTTe, Chitu, Chitraaaa, TaleharaTe – by Angii
Sprite, Picchi Pilla - by Bhopu. Still haven't asked him why (on the earth) he refers me by that name
Chitraanna, KaTThe, Goobe, KoTi and Chitra Aunty – by Bro dear. He insists that he will call me ‘Chitra Aunty’ after my marriage but has started calling me the same so that ‘I could get used to it’. Baah !!
Chaitra- by some confused individuals. Had to bear this confusion all throughout my school and college days. Thank God that there's no 'Chaitra' in my project.
Chitranna, Chitralahari, Chatri, Chithoo (pronounced as Chi-thoo :)..) – by most of my cousins in
Cibaca – namakaran by a few of my college-mates. Can’t say that I ‘loved’ it but ya......it definitely seemed better than Cutie Kitty given to some other classmate of mine. Phew!!
But the icing on the cake is LOHAPATAGAAMINI.
Perhaps I got the name due to the fact that I had become horizontally challenged during one summer.....or maybe due to my forceful nature. Aaaah......what’s for wishful thinking........:D
The rest are pet names which people close to me use.....but they can’t be divulged you see – top secret :) !
