NOTES

The bulk of these names are ones you might hear walking around in Mumbai in the modern day; they come from a variety of northern languages, such as Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, and Marathi. The folkloric ones are less common, and more clearly Sanskrit-derived; older people are more likely to have such names. European and south Indian names are not unheard of either.Naming practices vary immensely by language and region. In the vicinity of Mumbai, people often follow the English practice of tak-ing a frst name and a family name, inherited down the male line; this family name is frequently a caste term. Middle names are frequently the father or husband’s frst name. Another common practice is to take the father’s name as a family name; for instance, Vikranth Suman-jit (abbreviated S. Vikranth) is the son of D. Sumanjit, and so on.The list has a Hindu bias. Muslims use these names as well, although they also use Arabic names and sur-names. Some of the family names are Hindu religious names; Muslims are unlikely to have these. The folkloric lists are also flled with religious names.

On the subject of food, in north India, meals generally consist of a grain - rice or various sorts of flat breads - served alongside a dal - a dish made with legumes or some kind - and optionally, various meat or vegetable dishes and small condiments - pickled things and sauces. Sweets are served with the meal, rather than after it as a dessert. Much like the names, these come from a patchwork of sources.
