The title of this blog is 'potpourri'. While going through the process of creation of blog I had to fill in the title. I thought of giving a title in Greek or Latin or in some unknown language as most of them do. I even browsed through some of the so called Greek, Latin, French dictionary websites. Didn’t come across any word or phrase which conveyed simple and an interesting meaning.. Thought of giving the title as 'My Think pad'. But that would sound philosophical. Finally, I remembered one friend who calls me 'potpourri'. I thought that this word would suit the title.

According to a dictionary, potpourri is a mixture of dried petals and leaves from various flowers and plants that is used to give a room a pleasant smell. The other meaning of potpourri goes like this.. 'An unusual or interesting mixture of things'. Hmmm... something relevant and interesting too.. a blog which would be a collection of unrelated yet interesting thoughts/posts. That’s all for now.. Please feel free to post your comments..

Nice start... I think everyone who start a blog will face similar situation. Even me.. I also searched for some german, spanish words. But didn't get proper one. So finally named it like this.. :)
