Another peculiar story concerning names. Perhaps the Universe is not satisfied with just the two stories that I wrote about earlier.
I received a phone call from a friend of over thirty years to inform me of his first ever overseas trip to the UK and wanting some contacts there in case of need.
I immediately told him that in an emergency he should call Barath, my brother in London and he wanted to know the name again as there was a lot of static in the call. I started off by saying Barath Rajgopaul and to give a telephone number, when he interrupted me to say that Barath was in Mumbai and Ahmedabad and not in London. I was zapped and I asked him how this was possible as I should know about my brother’s whereabouts more than he would. He said, that he did not realise that I was talking about my brother and that he was talking about Bharat Rajgore, who was a colleague of mine over 32 years ago.
I was reminded of my ex colleague, and decided to get back in touch with Bharat Rajgore who I had known in 1985/90.
I did some detective work and found out the phone number and called Bharat up much to his delight and my satisfaction that an old colleague was still working and remembered me well.
A bad telephone connection resulted in my getting back in touch with an old colleague.
The friend who was to go to London has postponed his trip due to a death in his family and my brother Barath has to be kept on hold till the visit eventually takes place.
