Why This Blog Name??

Well now its time for me to tell everybody why my blog’s name is moukound..see its like this..i live in pondicherry..one of the former french colonies in india…and the influence of french is still very high…they spell even the tamil words..i.e people’s names in a frenchized manner…

some of the examples are here
