Does your name start with ‘A’?

I have always wondered whether having a name starting with the letter ‘A’ is advantageous or not. (I know you must be thinking idhellaam think panra vera velaiye illayaa! Seriously ippo vera velai illaye & blogla edhavadhu ezhudhanume! 🙂 )  Be it in school or in college or for that matter even at work wherein employee number is allotted according to the alphabetical order if more than one person joins on the same day, mine has always been among the first few roll numbers. As a result of that whenever a teacher/lecturer asked a question to the class and no one answered, as would usually be the case, the teacher would immediately say that if no one volunteers I will start with the first roll number then! That’s it! You would end up standing in front of the class without knowing the answer! The worst thing happened in college where we were asked to give seminars in some subjects. Since no one volunteered, it was decided that starting with the first roll number everyone will give a presentation every week. By the time not even half the number of students had given a seminar, the semester was over and the others escaped. The same thing had happened in many semesters.
As they say, there is always another side to the coin. Having a name starting with ‘A’ meant all the practical exams and viva got over for you first. It felt good to relax when others were studying hard. 😛
