Presiding Officer, Toastmaster of the evening, fellow Toastmasters and dear guests.
My name is Puspa Chandra Khanal. Spelled as P-U-S-P-A. In Nepal people feel easy to pronounce my name. But when I was in Delhi for my study of chartered accountancy it was miserable.
I can say I spent my whole 4.5 years just instructing people to pronounce my name correctly. In India people are familiar with the word either pusp or Pushpa.
