Kishore Naib

Why Kit Naib? (and not Kishore)

Why I call myself Kit

I am half indian, but I have the appearance of being white (although I tan very easily). In school I was fed up of people mispronouncing my name, not remembering it, misspelling it and asking me why I have a "strange" name.

On countless occasions I have been asked if I'm sure that I am the write person, e.g. in a hospital, leading to all sorts of questions about my date of birth and sometimes having to show ID. I'd just had enough.

So, in my 30s I planned to change my name by deed poll. I filled out the forms but never did it. So my real name remains Kishore Naib, but I often refer to myself as Kit Naib.
