It all started when I got my wife a MotoRazr. She changed it's bluetooth name to 'KittyRazr' initially.
At the time I myself owned a Sony Ericsson Z600. As you can see from the pic attached it's quite a hefty phone, quite in contrast to the razor sleekness of the MotoRazr.
Also, having been a fan of the works of Dame Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle from an early age, the concept of a Blunt Instrument was quite fascinating for me.
Blunt instrument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As it is, I am not Particularly well known among my friends as having a precise, razor keen edge, tending more towards a crude but effective approach, I just had to name my phone 'BluntInstrument' and since then the name has kinda kept up with subsequent phones.
Which is how I came up with the handle here. BTW my current phone, a SE K530i this time, is called 'CrudeButEffective' now, lol.

I am into repairs of Fuel Injection Equipment. I joined my fathers business as soon as I completed my Mech. Engineering. We have recently started repairs of CRDI systems which very few people in India are doing right now.
Hence the name CRDI Samir= CRDIsamir

Jehu, was the King of Israel and its an interesting story in The Bible. He was characterised by his CRAZY SPEEDS but was real quick and razor sharp in accomplishing his mission. He was too powerful and single handedly annihilates 2 wicked kings and wipes of the kings clans. Almost all of this is accomplished astride his horse.When the lookout watches from the tower to spot the smoke arising out of the horse's hoof's, he immediately recognizes it to be the riding of Jehu and he explains thus. The driving is like that of Jehu son of Nimshi—he drives like a maniac

This name fascinates me so much and hence I wanted to name my firstborn son as Jehu, atleast helping him to become a racing champion; but my firstborn is a daughter.

I was desperately looking for information on the web on several topics having started regular browsing at the time, and I decided on the name Pareyshaan when I registered at TBHP!
