On the spur of the moment of registeration I just couldn't think of something quirky or funny or pretentious; so fumbled and folded the slogan of my ride (lets go) to gostel as my userid. Saving grace is that my ride is going without a fumble (Jio Maruti paaji).

Like to be a cool cloud while driving, without interrupting anyone else's way even at speeds...

I have this userID "ambivalent" since a long time. Actually when I opened my first e-mail account with Yahoo in 1998 I was thinking of a unique name. I took a pick from the Times of India lying close to me. Much like the surname "Mrs. Doubtfire" ... So I have an e-mail ID by that name....and also much like the word itself I have two opinions about something one good and one bad......ambivalent

My name is Krishnamurthy Ganesan. Many years ago when I opened a yahoo mail account, I tried various combinations of my name to create a user name. All seemed to be already taken so I finally tried Gansan and it clicked. Best of all, it tickled me no end when people in chat rooms assumed I was Japanese! This has been my user name ever since, in whatever fora I joined.

While I was spending the better part of my day while playing "Age of Empires", I got fascinated with the Atilla Expeditions in that game; played it for innumerable number of times and down the line started using this id as my game id. Though the game weared off slowly, the id kind of stuck with me; for other games to follow and hence this id!

Kite Runner is a wonderful book and now a good movie.
I still remember my childhood days of making kites with bamboo sticks & color paper and flying them, well never had done kite running, most of my kites ended on tree tops.

I very well remember the auspicious Ganesh Visarjan day on the 09-09-03 when I held my son for the first time at hospital. Things have changed for the better in my life that's why most of my e-id has Sha09mel. Shamel is my son's name & 09 is his birth date.

I always loved Supercars as when I was much younger I spent all my time looking at Specifications and Photos of Supercars.
I became older to be One of the Best Drivers in the World so I named myself SUPERCARS.
