G.Sheik Dawood Syed Ali Khan to Dawood Sait

Long back when i was born my parents named me G.Sheik Dawod Syed Ali Khan (g , the initial we from tamilnadu have their fathers name as initial, like how they have sir names in north family names in mallus attached to their names ).My name was composed very carefully taking into lot of considerations like my mothers family din want to miss out their family name and my dad's famliy din want to miss theri family name.So when some one spells out my name fully it represents the whole history of family till the last century.But i don know when i was admitted in K.G classes my class teacher found out that such a long name is not cool so she cut short to just G.Sheik Dawood.
When i was class one my new class teacher Miss.Bella thought that even this big name is not that cool so she cut short and cut out some letters and made it to David in the class register.Parallely i have no idea how such a long name of mine got cut to Sait at home.
I was called David at school and Sait at home.Slowly every one forgot my real name , me too and was given a new name(s).As time passed and issues arised my parents had a fight with the school for changing my name , again it was G.Sheik Dawood in school register.
Now by 4th std my official name was G.Sheik Dawood and unofficial name was Sait.But i always liked the later on Sait,it was cool ,small and simple.More over no one can find out wich religion i belong to , the marwadis in my class thought im some hybrid from south and people from here thought i was a hybrid from north.Actually i lot my identity as such from were i belong to, that was real cool.
But all the well it was cool till Mr.Dawood Ibrahim came into picture , i don exactly wneh this happened suddely lot of people started calling me Dawood,they found it real cool to call me Dawood, but i had to face lot of problems like , when every one geting their passport clearence in one month it took me 6 months to get my passport cleared.Some people asked me wheather im a relative of mr.dawood bhai.Some people even started calling me dawood bhai.
But i never found it cool to be called Dawood Bhai, there was big big fear attached to me with the name.Recently i came across one of my school freind who told me that he never knew that my name is g.sheik dawood, he thought my real name is Sait , then i came across my college freind who told the truth that he never knew that my name was g.sheik dawood ,he alwas thought my name is just dawood.
So the conclusion people thought its cool to calle dawood and i think its cool to be called sait, in the course of time G and Sheik has be deleted from my name like how Syed Ali Khan was , so i fused both popular names and made Dawood Sait.Thats my current name.Lets hope atleast this stays.Its a cool name na.
